The Samaritan

IFC Films’ new release, The Samaritan, must have been, considering his role as star and executive producer, a project that Samuel L. Jackson really believed in to have invested his money and his time (though, significantly, not too much effort).  But after a viewing of this film, I’m hard-pressed to understand what he could have […]

Every once in awhile a movie will come along and completely shock people.  End of Watch is one of those movies.  With a marketing campaign roughly 1/16 of what The Avengers’ was, David Ayer’s film hits theaters this weekend without much buzz.

BFS Entertainment is cashing in on the Tom Hardy craze, with him having both Lawless and The Dark Knight Rises out this year, it makes sense for them to re-release the crime saga The Take. The four episode mini-series was shown in 2009 in the U.K. and was based off of a novel written by […]

The experience of Fernando Di Leo’s 1980 film, Madness (Vacanze per un Massacro), only confirms what we’ve known all along, that Di Leo was the master of the Italian crime picture. So deserving is Di Leo of our constant attention and unwavering devotion that the release of Madness on DVD marks the eighth Di Leo […]

The Bling Ring

The story on which the 2011 Lifetime movie The Bling Ring is based has, for whatever reason(s), struck a chord with audiences.  First of all, if Lifetime makes a movie based on a story, that’s a pretty good indicator right there that it’s a popular issue in the public discourse.  But then, when TV shows […]
