Chronicle Review

The superhero genre is has not been more mainstream than today. Chronicle is an extension of that genre written by Max Landis and directed by Josh Trank. The premise is nothing new by any means, three high school teens get exposed to an unearthly meteor that gives them telekinetic powers. The story is centered around one of the teens of which is a victim of bullying and an abusive father. From the first act the tension builds as we see the bullied teen mistreated in a number of ways. The film is viewed by the perspective of a video camera that the teens carry around with them. The camera point of view adds a voyeuristic approach to the film. The result is a more intimate view into the characters lives of which most viewers whom have attended high school can relate to. That is where this film stands out, by adding the layer of emotion to the battered teen and all of the unfortunate events that result from him and his friends gaining these new powers. The story unfolds as one of the members take a turn to the "Darkside". Forcing the rest of the group to take action against their former friend. Even with similar stories told in the XMen, Spiderman or even the Looper film, Chronicle is a fresh approach to an otherwise saturated genre. The screenplay was written by Max Landis and directed by Josh Trank whom is on board to reboot the Fantastic Four. Which is rumored to be replacing the Human Torch character with black actor Michael B. Jordan who also stars in Chronicle. Hollywood today either sticks with original character traits or changes them completely...

The Following Pilot Screened at SD Comic Con 2012

The Following is a new show yet to start on Fox starring Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy on the hunt for a serial killer played by James Purefoy, the twist is the killer is already in prison and Bacon must hunt for his followers that are under the control of this serial that is already behind bars. This pilot was shown to us at the San Diego Comic Con and I will say it was my favorite pilot of all that were screened. Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) gives a very dark and twisted performance as the lead villain serial killer. By the way the constant references to the works of Edgar Allen Poe are great and makes me think that this should have been the premise to the Raven which bombed earlier this year in theaters. The pilot was intense and felt as if there was not a slow moment for the full length episode. I was surprised with how violent it was (a + in my book) even for network television. Also doesn't to have Kevin Bacon as the lead and a hero at that, as you all know Mr. Bacon has only graced us as a villain in previous roles. Bacon and Purefoy answered questions immediately after the pilot screening, the cast seemed excited with the type of feedback they received for the show. The Following also stars Maggie Grace (Twilight Saga, Lost), Natalie Zea (Justified, Californication), Shawn Ashmore (X-Men), Jeanne Goossen (Alcatraz) and Billy Brown (Dexter). The show was created by Kevin Williamson (Scream, The Vampire Diaries) and directed by Marcos Siega (The Vampire Diaries, Dexter) Be on the lookout for this series which is on board for late 2012-2013 premiere. If done correctly this can be another hit for Fox. Check out the trialer below.

The Walking Dead Season 2

Season 2 is finally here and the premiere was off the hook. Couple questions came up after watching the first episode...Like in the first season, there was a big deal made about how the zombies can smell the living, yet in this first episode, the characters are able to evade the walkers by hiding under cars...which was also brought up in the Talking Dead show afterwards. When asked the question, Robert Kirkman (executive producer) mentioned that the zombies are not bloodhounds, they don't follow their noses (insert Fruit Loops joke here) Another question that came up was are the dead bodies found inside of cars dead zombies or just dead people and if they were just dead people what are they still doing in the cars? I came up with a couple of answers to this one...they could have died in car accidents causing their bodies to rot away inside the car or something happened in the past causing them to die in the vehicle, be it gas, starvation, shot etc It would be interesting to find out more about how these people died besides the obvious zombie attack. With that said the season two opener was awesome and I along with the rest of America can't wait till next Sunday. Personally I can't wait for Merle to spring his one handed ass back into the story. The episode with him in the first season was among the best in my opinion. Also interesting will be the ticking time bomb that awaits Rick his wife and best friend. If you can't get enough of the Walking Dead, remember this show was spawned from 89 issues of the comic books which are available online so go check it out!

Hobo with a Shotgun (Review)

By simply looking at the poster, you can tell this is not your regular vigilante flick. Filled with violence, nudity, over the top obnoxious language and behaviour. Hobo with a Shotgun is an exploitation film that despite the conveniently violent dialogue, still manages to deliver a message. Set in neighborhood where violence and crime run free, Rutger Hauer plays a bum that has had enough. Couldn't help but to compare it to the crime filled streets of the past Robocop films. The blood and gore is plenty and even the main characters are put through scenes that will make you cringe. I am a bit bias to violent, in your face films such as this one but if your into to sick and crazy plots...It will not disappoint. The scenes keep you wondering as to how much more violence and gore they can squeeze into an hour and half flick (Plenty of it) Filmed on location in Canada, the look of the movie also adds to the feel, being shot in a gritty Technicolor view that does the job as far as creating that cheap grind house atmosphere. The score is also perfectly incorporated into the both the mood and pace of the film. You can catch the unrated trailer here and make sure you watch this one uncensored if not...don't bother. Let street justice prevail!

Rabies Review

First time directors Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales put together an interesting mix of campy horror, suspense and convenient gore. With that said the film starts in the traditional horror fashion, with friends making a wrong turn and ending up lost in the forest. The film holds on the first three quarters of the way only to leave a wide open finish that just makes you think how did it all happen. For those into gore and unfortunate turn of events this film delivers. But to many this will simply be a melting pot of prior films like Cabin Fever, Final Destination or even the Hostel films. This film is part of the Tribeca Film Festival lineup can be streamed for free for a limited time here. Only three out of five stars on this one. I was expecting more from Rabies, but the sudden surprises make it watchable.
