Cavemen – The Blu Review

15 April 2014 8:40 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Sam Moffitt

Charlie Kaufman has a lot to answer for. His multi level style of screen writing now has multiple imitators.  Witness if you will a little film called Cavemen. In the style of Charlie Kaufman’s screen play for Adaptation and other films, we see a young, urban professional named Dean struggle to write a screen play, bounce ideas off some unnamed friends, present his screen play to a way too convincing Hollywood producer (very well played by Jason Patric) and struggle to live through the incidents that will come to make up the screen play we see him write, and that we also see being performed in front of our eyes.

Not quite as engaging as Kaufman’s style Cavemen does have its fun moments, but, well…

Dean and three of his friends have figured out how to keep the frat boy life style going well »

Sony is bringing original programming to the PlayStation platform, with Deadline revealing that Sony Pictures TV is to adapt Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's Powers as an hourlong drama series which is expected to run for around 10 episodes.

The series follows Detective Christian Walker, who is in charge of protecting humans like us and investigating cases involving the God-like men and women, referred to as 'powers,' who glide through the sky on lightning bolts and fire and who clash above cities in epic battle, oblivious to the mortals below."

Powers had previously been in development as a series at FX, who produced an unreleased pilot which saw Jason Patric leading the cast as Christian Walker alongside Lucy Punch, »

19 March 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Interview: The Outsider Star Craig Fairbrass

5 March 2014 4:44 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

In case you haven’t heard the news, Craig Fairbrass is a cinematic badass. When it comes to delivering tough-as-nails action, nobody does it quite like Fairbrass. “The Outsider,” which co-stars Jason Patric and James Caan, recently arrived on home video in the United States. However, that’s not the only motion picture the guy has available at the moment. A quick search on IMDb turns up a number of recent and upcoming projects, which makes he decision to talk to us a little surprising. Although he plays a tough guy on-screen, Fairbrass is actually very kind and incredibly personable. If you’re at all curious about “The Outsider” or his work as an action star, then take a moment to peruse our interview. Tell me a little bit about your new film ‘The Outsider’? How did the project come about? I worked with Brian J Miller on “House of the Rising Sun. »

Jason Patric Custody Battle: I Miss My Son

18 February 2014 7:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jason Patric insists he was not merely a sperm donor to his ex-girlfriend of 10 years, Danielle Schreiber, with whom he's currently locked in a bitter custody battle over their 4-year-old son, Gus. "I was a willing co-parent and still am," Patric, 47, who hasn't been allowed to see the boy for one year and counting, insists in an interview with People. "Danielle and I tried to conceive a child for three years. The only reason we did in vitro fertilization is because she could not conceive naturally. That does not make me a donor." Schreiber, 41, a massage therapist, argues that that's exactly what Patric was. »

Film Review: ‘Cavemen’

6 February 2014 8:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An utterly unevolved romantic comedy, “Cavemen” tries to split the difference between raunchy and sweet and fails miserably on all counts. The presence of “Pitch Perfect” leading man Skylar Astin as a struggling Los Angeles screenwriter won’t help this low-budget and even lower-impact pic’s prospects for success. Auds in the Paleolithic Era might have been more receptive, if only because they weren’t yet inundated by the tiresome cliches writer-director Herschel Faber indulges in here.

Dean (Astin) and his three male roommates live in a trendy downtown loft they’ve dubbed “the cave.” All aspiring artists in some way, they’re like the crew from “Swingers” as reimagined by the creators of an “American Pie” direct-to-dvd sequel. The only one who really matters besides Dean is fellow bartender Jay (Chad Michael Murray), a cloyingly narcissistic ladies man who brags endlessly about his numerous conquests.

Dean, meanwhile, is determined »

The Outsider – The Review

6 February 2014 4:00 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Action movies typically fall within a finite number of formulas. For this reason, the success of an action movie generally relies a great deal on how well the filmmaker adapts to creating an original story within that formula. Acting is rarely a significant factor in an action film because, well, most viewers are not expecting an action film to win any major awards of a thespian nature.

To put it simply, action films rely greatly on the filmmaker accomplishing two very specific criteria. The first are riveting, exciting action sequences that are masterfully choreographed and meet the bare minimal qualifications for us to willingly suspend our disbelief. The second would be a storyline that is engaging and as unpredictable as possible. This second criteria is so very often the most difficult to achieve and this film just sort of glides along, content to earn that low-to-mid C grade, not ambitious »

Review: The Outsider, Just Outside Of Being A Great Action Film

6 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Without a doubt, Craig Fairbass is a physical presence in any film he is in. As much as The Outsider tries, though, his emotional output as a concerned father is outmatched by his stature and physical strength. Fairbass plays a British military contractor named Lex Walker who is told his daughter has died. When he arrives in Los Angeles and discovers the body is not hers, he begins an investigation, starting at her former employer Most Industries, run by unscrupulous Carl Schuuster (James Caan). At the same time, Detective Klein of the Lapd is trying to solve the murder of another girl and keep Walker from dishing out his own definition of justice. In a supporting role, Jason Patric as Detective Klein does little except expound with...
