Frenemy – DVD

25 December 2010 12:28 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

DVD Review

Frenemy

Directed by: Gregory Dark

Cast: Matthew Modine, Callum Blue, Adam Baldwin, Lisa Brenner, Zach Galifianakis

Running Time: 1 hr 20 mins

Rating: R

Due Out: December 14, 2010

Plot: Two men wander around Los Angeles after surviving a bank robbery at a porn store while discussing the possibilities of destiny intervening with their traumatic moment.

Who’S It For? People who are dedicated to finishing an entire movie, even if it appears that nothing is happening for a large chunk of it (even if the movie is only seventy-six minutes long).

Movie:

Talk doesn’t have to be cheap. Thousands of films, (especially those by Tarantino, who is idealized here in both conversational topics and soundtrack), can have an audience fully on board just with walking and talking heads discussing anything. From Ingmar Bergman’s three-hour long Scenes From A Marriage to Kevin Smith’s Clerk’s 2, no one has to »

DVD Playhouse December 2010

By

Allen Gardner

America Lost And Found: The Bbs Story (Criterion) Perhaps the best DVD box set released this year, this ultimate cinefile stocking stuffer offered up by Criterion, the Rolls-Royce of home video labels, features seven seminal works from the late ‘60s-early ‘70s that were brought to life by cutting edge producers Bert Schneider, Steve Blauner and director/producer Bob Rafelson, the principals of Bbs Productions. In chronological order: Head (1968) star the Monkees, the manufactured (by Rafelson, et al), American answer to the Beatles who, like it or not, did make an impact on popular culture, particularly in this utterly surreal piece of cinematic anarchy (co-written by Jack Nicholson, who has a cameo), which was largely dismissed upon its initial release, but is now regarded as a counterculture classic. Easy Rider (1969) is arguably regarded as the seminal ‘60s picture, about two hippie drug dealers (director Dennis Hopper »

[DVD Review] Frenemy

15 December 2010 3:22 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

How do you sell a movie that, if people knew what it was actually about, they would never buy it? Why, prominently feature the most famous and well-liked cast member on the DVD box, even if he’s in the film for only 15 or so minutes, of course! Writing up a misleading description for the back won’t hurt either.

When you look at the Photoshop Disasters-worthy cover of Frenemy, Zach Galifianakis’ friendly face, framed by Callum Blue (Dead Like Me, Smallville) and Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Weeds), looks back at you. The visage, topped by big, round and red letters spelling out the film’s title, suggests a wacky comedy. The back description, on the other hand, brings to mind a dark comedy, albeit not the one this movie actually is. It describes a “group of friends” who witness a “horrifying crime” which leaves all but one unharmed. »

Documentaries to "Exit" 2010 With and More New DVDs

11 December 2010 4:23 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

A look at what's new on DVD today:

"Gasland" (2010)

Directed by Josh Fox

Released by New Video Group

"Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work"

Directed by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg

Released by Mpi Home Video

"Exit Through the Gift Shop" (2010)

Released by Oscilloscope Laboratories

If you haven't caught up on the year's best documentaries in time to fill out your top 10 list, three of them will be hitting DVD shelves this week, beginning with Josh Fox's Sundance award-winning "Gasland," an exploration of the "hydraulic fracturing" going on in own backyard, a type of drilling that has spread to 34 states in the U.S. and has left a host of reservoirs of toxic waste and frequent gas explosions along the way. For something less serious, but equally compelling, there is also Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work," which follows the »

Frenemy Trailer Starring Zach Galifianakis

30 November 2010 3:56 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Are you sick of Zach Galifianakis yet? Based on the mixed reviews of Due Date, I'd say that the backlash is already well underway, but that hasn't stopped him from trying to squeeze as much as he can out of the window of opportunity that The Hangover has provided him with. The man has appeared in at least five movies this year, and now there is yet another one due to hit store shelves before the end of the year. Yes, that's right, the movie is called Frenemy and it is another direct-to-dvd affair, not unlike Operation: Endgame which Anchor Bay also released this past summer. It seems like the kind of low budget stuff you should be avoiding once you're a big star, but what do I know? The movie is directed by Gregory Dark, who also did the Kane horror flick See No Evil, which is probably not a good sign. »

Hemingway.S Garden Of Eden

Synopsis:

An adaptation of Nobel laureate Ernest Hemingway.s novel, The Garden of Eden, which was published posthumously in 1986 to great success.  The novel remains one of the author.s most debated novels and is considered a departure from Hemingway.s usual work as it is widely accepted the novel is far more reflective of his personal life, perhaps even semi-autobiographical.  The fact the book was not published until after Hemingway.s suicide has sparked debate as to whether the erotic nature of it was such that he never wished it published at all.

Set in the jazz age of the 1920s, the story follows a successful young American writer, David Bourne (Jack Huston), and his beautiful wife, Catherine (Mena Suvari), on their extended honeymoon in Europe. Catherine soon becomes restless and starts to test her husband.s devotion, pushing him to the limits of »

Could “Hemingway” cost Javier Bardem an Oscar nomination?

20 October 2010 4:27 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Is Roadside Attractions biting off more than it can chew when it comes to this year’s Oscar race?

The growing film distributor hasn’t yet had a major taste of Oscar pie, having nibbled around the edges with Morgan Spurlock’s nominated doc “Super Size Me” back in 2004. All of a sudden, the company has a full plate of Oscar contenders heading into the annual awards season, and it just shifted everything around a little bit to make room for one more acquisition.

According to a release, Roadside Attractions picked up the rights to John Irvin’s “Hemingway’s Garden of Eden,” a feature-film adaptation of the cherished author’s last novel, which was posthumously published. Wasting no time, Roadside announced it will release “Eden” on Dec. 10.

Does that suggest awards aspirations for “Eden” cast members Mena Suvari, Caterina Murino, Matthew Modine or Carmen Maura? »
