ALL AMERICAN ORGY

ALL AMERICAN ORGY

| October 28, 2010

At first glance, this film gets your attention by using such a simplistic title, which sets you up for what you’re assuming you’re about to see. In fact, even the cover would grab your attention at Blockbuster, or Netflix, using a buxom, yet faceless, figure to take up over ninety percent of the packaging. Spoiler […]

Final OUTrage at the 46th Chicago Intl Film Festival

| October 27, 2010

Here’s one last snippet of the gay and lesbian cinema that graced the big screens at the 46th Annual Chicago International Film Festival: Coming in first on my list of the best films by or about gay directors was Beautiful Darling by James Rasin, but James Cameron Mitchell’s tragicomedy, Rabbit Hole (USA), swung ahead in […]

| October 27, 2010

In the same vein as the classic film The Big Chill, Helena from the Wedding is a story about a group of friends that reunite for New Year’s Eve at a remote cabin in the woods. Of the group, there are three married couples, then one single female and one single male friend. At first […]

Bangkok Adrenaline

Bangkok Adrenaline

| October 26, 2010

The first thing one would identify writer/director/co-star Raimund Huber’s Bangkok Adrenaline as is a kung fu movie. And as a kung-fu movie, Bangkok Adrenaline delivers some terrific martial arts sequences. Respectably, all the actors, including Daniel O’Neill (The Protector, The Medallion), perform their own stunts, and they execute the fight sequences brilliantly. All the while, […]

Slings & Arrows: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray

Slings & Arrows: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray

| October 25, 2010

Honestly, I haven’t a single negative thing to say about Slings & Arrows, except perhaps that it’s over all too soon. The series, which ran three seasons for a total of 18 episodes, aired on Canada’s Movie Central and later in the U.S. on The Sundance Channel, receiving pretty much universal accolades with its cast […]

In 2002 Armin Meiwes (known popularly as the Rotenburg Cannibal), was convicted of the manslaughter of fellow a fellow German named Bernd Jürgen Brandes. Meiwes was looking to have a cannibalistic experience, and Brandes was looking to, well… get eaten. This was shocking in and of itself, but what most captivated the world was that […]

Never Cry Werewolf

Never Cry Werewolf

| October 22, 2010

Nothing can ruin a day more than having a killer werewolf move next door. So, if it ever happens to you, just ask yourself What would Hercules do? Answer — kick its ass. Nina Dobrev (of Degrassi and Vampire Diaries fame) can’t quite figure out her new studly next door neighbor with the 5:00 shadow […]

Psych 9

Psych 9

| October 22, 2010

I’ve grown a bit leary of horror flicks that take place in psych wards/mental hospitals/loony bins. It’s as if the idea that the story takes place where people have wicked hallucinations and massive brain farts, it means the filmmaker has free reign to mess with the reality of the world within the film. Unfortunately, this […]

Beautiful Losers

This film is a great first film for Director Aaron Rose, who is an all around artist in New York City and director Joshua Leonard who works mostly as an actor. Director Aaron Rose and Joshua Leonard tell the story of a little known art movement that focuses on Do It Yourself attitude; A mindset […]
