Film Review: ‘Poker Night’

21 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Poker Night” offers a near-indigestible mix of tricky “Pulp Fiction”-esque structural convolution, torture-porn tropes and a somewhat distasteful level of snark, making for a self-satisfied puzzle that most viewers will run out of patience trying to unravel. This first theatrical feature for TV veteran Greg Francis won’t linger long in theaters after its single-screen Los Angeles launch on Dec. 20. Nonetheless, some familiar cast faces and other marketable elements should make it salable in various markets as a home-format item; it was released on VOD and iTunes earlier this month.

Jeter (Beau Mirchoff, TV’s “Awkward”) is a rookie cop just promoted to detective. After an instance of highly public heroism, he’s invited to the titular ritual evening, where, between playing hands, a circle of older policemen (including Ron Perlman, Giancarlo Esposito and Ron Eldard) school him by relating stories “worth a year’s street experience.” Each invariably »

Does Sons of Anarchy's Finale Death Rank as the Series' Biggest One Ever?

10 December 2014 5:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sons of Anarchy's seven-season run came to an end on Tuesday night, and went out in a blaze of glory. And blood. (Warning, spoiler ahead!) After the deaths of three major characters (Rip, Juice! So long, Gemma! Bye, Unser!) in the penultimate episode, Kurt Sutter wasn't done killin' his darlings. Or should we say darling as Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) ended up dying in the series finale, going out on his own terms after an epic police chase. But could Jax's death top all of the major Soa deaths that went down before the series finale, including the previously mentioned trio, Clay (Ron Perlman), Tara (Maggie Siff) and...well, it's a looong list.  So which character will go down as Sons of »

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to

Can you tell me anything about The Blacklist's big post-Super Bowl episode? — Darren

Now that the Berlin story line is wrapped up, the Super Bowl episode will be more of a stand-alone event. But it's shaping up to be an explosion-heavy spectacle — one that kicks off with Red being kidnapped! His abduction, however, could be part of a plan to stay close to the episode's villain (played by Ron Perlman). In fact, Red has a few tricks up his sleeve, one of which will seriously scare Liz.

How once-great 'Sons of Anarchy' ran off the road before the end

9 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It sounds strange to say about a show I haven't watched regularly in two years — and barely at all in its final season — and stopped consistently enjoying long before that, but there was a time when I loved "Sons of Anarchy" about as much as anything on TV. Back in the day, Kurt Sutter's biker "Hamlet" was one of the shows I most enjoyed watching, writing about, and debating with critics and fans alike. In its second season in particular, it was one of the very best shows on television (on that year's Top 10 list, I had it only a couple of spots behind "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad") and every bit the Next Great FX Drama you would expect from Sutter, who apprenticed on "The Shield" and penned many of that show's most memorable (and/or disgusting) moments. In retrospect, that second season — pitting Samcro against a band »

The Fear Monger: Friday The 13th May Bring Back This Iconic Character

7 December 2014 2:13 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Good day, horror fans. The scariest thing about this week might just be the complete lack of big horror releases in theaters. Arguably the biggest debut is Gregory Levasseur.s Egypt-set supernatural horror The Pyramid, but it wasn.t even given that wide of a berth. (It isn.t playing where I live, which may or may not be inside of a haunted pyramid.) There.s also Erik Skjoldbjærg.s Norwegian thriller Pioneer, but that.s got an even smaller release window. On the VOD front, December 5th saw the release of the thriller Poker Night, which stars Ron Perlman, Titus Welliver, Giancarlo Esposito and Ron Eldard. (Go watch The Babadook if you haven.t yet.) In smaller news, Uwe Boll has taken to Indiegogo to try and fund the presumably violent sequel Rampage 3: No Mercy. (Why?) The highly anticipated sci-fi thriller Z for Zachariah, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and »

Poker Night Review

2 December 2014 9:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As an avid Texas Hold’em player, I’ve honed my ability to read statuesque poker faces concealing the slightest tell (a subconscious sign revealing your rival’s hand). Sure, developing such a sleuthy skill has helped build a nice bankroll for my casino trips, but I’ve also carried this talent over into my film criticism as well. Just because a movie isn’t human doesn’t mean there aren’t tells scattered about the script and screen, as filmmakers unintentionally show their hand long before the cards are flipped. Foreshadowing, heavy-handed-dialogue, condemning red herrings – it’s not that hard to spot a tell.

Squaring off against Greg Francis’ Poker Night, I didn’t expect to face an opponent with Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu’s swagger. Establishing itself as a criminal thriller, we meet a police officer named Jeter (Beau Mirchoff) the night he’s abducted by a masked »

Hellboy Was Almost A Mega-Budget Movie With An A-List Star

2 December 2014 10:02 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In his autobiography, Easy Street: The Hard Way, Ron Perlman tells a story about the unshakable faith that Guillermo Del Toro had in casting him in the main role of the red right hand of doom. The story goes as follows: Del Toro was set up to make Hellboy at Universal, but over time Universal kept throwing big name actors his way to persuade him into making the movie as soon as possible. At one point, the studio was apparently very excited about using Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson or Nicolas Cage in the title role, but Del Toro allegedly said he'd only cast Ron Perlman. While promoting today's release of The Strain on Blu-ray and DVD, I asked Guillermo Del Toro to confirm if both Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Nicolas Cage, the two big names Ron Perlman dropped in the aforementioned memoir, were actually pushed on him by the »

‘Before I Disappear’ is a droll, trippy pleasure

Before I Disappear

Written and directed by Shawn Christensen

USA/UK, 2014

We don’t get many cinematic one-man shows these days.  Shawn Christensen takes up the challenge by writing, directing and starring in the new indie mind-screw, Before I Disappear.  Though thin on plot and heavy on convulsions, there’s enough visual flair and wickedly-dark humor to reward your patience.  Psychedelic-noir gets mashed-up with The Odd Couple, and it works a lot better than you might imagine.

Richie (Christensen) would love to kill himself, if only his damn telephone would stop ringing!  Even though he just slashed his wrists and downed a bottle of pills, life won’t allow him the courtesy of a dignified death.  He’s just about to throw his phone out the window when he gets a call from his estranged sister, Maggie (Emmy Rossum).  She’s in a bind and needs Richie to watch her precocious 11 year-old daughter, »

Exclusive: Clip From 'Before I Disappear' Has A Lot Of Questions

28 November 2014 9:53 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This year, Damien Chazelle took his award winning short film "Whiplash" and turned it into an acclaimed, awards contending feature length movie. And that's the same path Shawn Christensen has taken with "Before I Disappear." His 2012 short "Curfew" took home an Academy Award, and now he's arrived two years later with the full length version of that tale and today we have an exclusive clip. Starring Christensen himself, along with Ron Perlman, Emmy Rossum, and Fatima Ptacek, the story follows Richie, a depressed and suicidal young man, who suddenly is thrust into caring for his young niece, Sophia. And so begins their time together and a journey through Manhattan, though it isn't always smooth sailing. As you'll see in this scene, Sophia wants to know as much as possible about the man who's looking after her, much to Richie's chagrin. "Before I Disappear" is on VOD today and now playing in limited release. »
