Cop Out: Put The Gun Down
Cop Out: Put The Gun Down
Offered by Short-form Videos
Price: $0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars TRACY MORGAN WAS GOOD, February 28, 2015
This review is from: Cop Out: Put The Gun Down
This is not the best Bruce Willis film out there. For Willis fans you might wait for Die Hard 4. He does not play a super-cop, but rather a mediocre cop paired with Tracy Morgan who uses lines from movies to interrogate prisoners.

The cops screw up and get suspended from the police force. Willis, in a situation where he wants to pay for his daughter's $48,000 wedding, opts to sell his 1952 gem mint 10 Topps Andy Pafko card for $83,000. While in the card shop he gets robbed. They now try to recover the card, which leads to dealings with criminals. Morgan steals every scene from Willis, who is nothing much more than an overpaid straight man.

Willis fans will not enjoy this movie as much as Morgan fans. This is better than another "Rush Hour" movie, but don't expect too much. 3 1/2 stars

Northmen: A Viking Saga
Northmen: A Viking Saga
Offered by Short-form Videos
Price: $0.00

3.0 out of 5 stars DAMN IT ASBJORN. I' M A WARRIOR NOT A CLIMBER!, February 28, 2015
This review is from: Northmen: A Viking Saga
A small boat full of exiled Vikings get marooned on Scotland, which doesn't want them either. Asbjorn (Tom Hopper) leads the group who happen to defeat a troop of soldiers and capture the princess (Charlie Murphy) the film's sole eye candy. They plan to ransom her off to her father for enough money to buy their way into a Viking settlement in the south. The plans go bad when they find out the rescue army wants to kill the princess, which they claim are the orders of the King. The Vikings are aided by a fighting monk (Ryan Kwanten) with a staff. Oh yes the princess can read the ground too. Ed Skrein leads the Scots who appear to one chromosome away from Orcs.

The film consists of Vikings running away from Scots, getting caught by Scots, fighting Scots and running away from Scots. The love story doesn't develop. The fight scenes weren't bad, but not memorable. Acting isn't bad for people who grunt.

Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity. Charlie Murphy cleavage. Tom Hopper beefcake. 2 1/2 stars


The Coven
The Coven
DVD ~ Dexter Fletcher
Price: $14.99

2.0 out of 5 stars I AM THE GOD OF HELL FIRE (Review for The Coven, not Dead Awake), February 28, 2015
This review is from: The Coven (DVD)
This if for the DVD "The Coven." If you search Amazon for "The Coven" it comes here with a description of the film "The Coven" but has a picture and reviews for "Dead Awake." Hopefully they will correct this error.

A group of five girls, none of which is Fairuza Balk, opt to go spend Halloween on the local Queens Wood lot which was used as a coven location. It was last used by Uri Clef because Louis Cypher was already taken. Two guys who are introduced with the film half over also jump the fence and go there and together the initial of the collective first names spell out "Lucifer" as if that means something. Meanwhile someone on a bike, who may or may not be Nicolas Cage, is in the woods going after the kids.

Yes the whole film was a build up to the girls going to the woods, crowding together in a tent, then running around with a couple of boys. No real special effects other than that CG fire thing. I kept waiting for things to happen then they rolled the credits which claimed the local coven attempted to keep them from shooting there. It is ashamed they didn't succeed.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex. No nudity. No Fairuza Balk. Be careful quoting Arthur Brown. 1 1/2 STARS

1.0 out of 5 stars I'M A BAPTIST., February 28, 2015
This review is from: Enter The Dominion (DVD)
Sheldon Marcus (Nicholas Gourdine) is a shy geeky poorly dressed computer genius who works for $12.50 answering phones. One night when media mogul Jonathan Xander (Dylan Christian) is publicly speaking for free to about a crowd of a dozen people, Sheldon interrupts and shows him that he is wrong. Xander sabotages Sheldon's life and forces him to work for him making in an hour what he used to earn in a week. Sheldon is supposed to run a social web site where people air their political views, are categorized, placed in groups of like people and are specifically marketed to, and possibly manipulated. Jonathan is a mover and shaker with all the world's power at his fingertips...At least I think that was the plot.

Jonathan is a crazy, a bit like Brad Pitt in "12 Monkeys" crazy. He is a heavy drinker, rubs his nose like he does coke, hurts people, and can't act. The supporting cast likewise had bad actors. The dialogue was fairly bad as the message of the film of media dominance controlling democratic outcome is lost. The only person who had decent lines was the air headed girlfriend which went something like this...."She said I was antagonistic, I told her I am not antagonistic, I'm a Baptist. She is so stupid." I did like the film when she was on the screen.

In additional to questionable acting, the low budget prevented decent sound equipment. The indoor sound had an faint echo to it. For a media millionaire, Jonathan had a modest office and staff. The plot loses the message.

Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars YOU HAVE A CURE!, February 28, 2015
This review is from: Territory 8 (DVD)
The film opens like a Chines fire drill as "White Agent" is released from the Hawthorn Wallis defense contractor plant. The camera jerks around, objects go in and out of focus and fonts have a blank line cut through the middle of them. We know this is serious stuff. We then move to a secure Hawthorn Wallis plant where Eli (Michael A. Tushaus) and Cho (Heung Wong) are working on a "cure" and practicing their lines. Cho speaks some lines in Chinese to a guy with Star Trek collar insignias over the Internet. I guess he is some kind of spy, no subscripts. Survivors from the White Agent release are irate as their lungs fill up with liquid and they die..."They killed my Auntie!" Whoops wrong film.

The film centers on two characters and most of the action takes place in one facility. The acting...well there was one scene that wasn't too bad. I couldn't feel the intensity as they used a generic sound track and bad dialogue to make us feel intensity. On the plus side they never used a voice enhancer, the scenes were centered and I never recalled seeing a microphone. The sound never cut in and out either so in many ways this was superior in quality to a lot of low budget indie messes out there that look like High School projects. However, It wasn't entertaining to watch two guys who can't act run around a concrete building for half the film.

No swearing, sex, or nudity. Minor blood and violence.
