Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the Week20th Century Women

What is it? A single mother in 1979 California tries to raise her teenage son with assistance from their friends.

Why buy it? Mike Mills’ (Beginners) latest is a beautiful ode to not just motherhood but family and friendships in general. Annette Bening delivers what should have been recognized as the best of last year too as she finds wit and warmth in a character trying to do right by her son. Billy Crudup is equally fantastic, and they’re joined by Greta Gerwig and Elle Fanning who also deliver compelling characters. Mills’ film focuses on Bening and her son, but it finds time to explore each of the characters »

Exclusive Interview: Johnathon Schaech on ‘Southern Fury’ & Working with Nicolas Cage

26 February 2017 7:03 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This weekend brought us the latest Nicolas Cage release, Southern Fury, a film about two brothers that find themselves in a sticky situation with a crime kingpin. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to chat to one of the lead stars, Johnathon Schaech, who plays Mikey Lindel in the film.

Schaech is a talented actor, who’s work spans the likes of many B-films like Southern Fury, and Marauders, as well as various TV appearances in shows such as Quantico, and – most notably – he took on the role of DC’s beloved antihero Jonah Hex in The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow. I had the chance to chat to him about Southern Fury, and we talked about B-films, working with Nicolas Cage and about Legends. Check it out:

Southern Fury review – substandard kidnap caper

26 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This violent thriller has no redeeming features – and that includes Nicolas Cage’s fake nose

This needlessly violent crime thriller is an assault on the eyes. A retina-scalding palette of toxic orange and teal blue, combined with numerous ultra-slow-motion shots of spurting blood makes for a migraine in movie form. Adrian Grenier plays the upstanding businessman who must save his deadbeat older brother (Johnathon Schaech) from kidnappers.

Nicolas Cage, wearing a fake nose and a nylon wig and looking like a cross between Toni Erdmann and a homicidal mariachi band, plays the local crime boss. The only thing that is less convincing that Cage’s prosthetic schnozz is the car crash of a plot.

Southern Fury review: Director Steven C. Miller (2017)

24 February 2017 9:16 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Southern Fury review: Nicolas Cage amps up the madness in this actioner, which also stars Adrien Grenier and John Cusack.

Southern Fury review, Awais Irfan, February 2017.

Nicolas Cage has become quite the name for many insane cult films in recent years; with the likes or The Trust, Army of One, Dog Eat Dog all freshly under his belt. His latest, Southern Fury, is no different – this is another wild adventure.

Our focus in this film is on the Lindel brothers, Mikey (Jonathon Schaech) and Jp (Adrian Grenier). We open to see them as kids – with a strong brotherly bond, having to rely on each other – then skip ahead to their adult lives – Jp has found some success in his life, with a good job and family, whilst Mikey spends his time as a small-time mobster, morally troubled and involved in small crimes. When a crime boss, from their past, Eddie King »

Southern Fury Review

21 February 2017 7:11 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Known in other territories under the name ‘Arsenal’, given the affiliations to a football team in the UK, instead this Steven C. Miller production is going by the name of Southern Fury. A shame, as this underwhelming production doesn’t live up to expectations, it’s easy to ridicule, and is a film that makes you thankful there are plenty other good productions out there to watch instead. Arsenal is a somewhat fitting title.

When growing up, Jp (Adrian Grenier) always looked up to his older brother Mikey (Johnathon Schaech) – but now, the tables have turned, and while the former runs his own business and is happily married with a child, the latter is constantly in debt, resorting to selling drugs to make ends meet. As such, he remains closely affiliated with the nefarious crime boss Eddie King (Nicolas Cage), and between them they concoct a plan for Mikey to go missing, »

Exclusive Interview – Johnathon Schaech on Southern Fury, working with Nic Cage, and finding the truth in his performances

20 February 2017 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alex Moreland chats with actor Johnathon Schaech about his new film Southern Fury

What drew you to this role initially?

I had just made a movie with Steven C. Miller, the director – Marauders – and it was such a great experience, man, we were like a very tight-knit family. The producers fill these roles very quick, these guys don’t let just anything go by – they’re like an efficient machine. The crew and everyone, they know how to move fast.

I always say, movies can be made for a million bucks, or they can be made for twenty – pretty much you’re gonna get the same thing at the end of it, depending on the artist that comes to it, and how willing they are to give. When I went there to make Marauders, I was just so enamoured by the way that they protected me, number one – making sure »

Movie Review – Arsenal (2017)

8 January 2017 8:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arsenal, 2017.

Directed by Steven C. Miller.

Starring Nicolas Cage, Adrian Grenier, John Cusack, and Johnathon Schaech.

Synopsis:

A Southern mobster attempts to rescue his kidnapped brother.

Is there a better way to ring in a new year of movies with some more material to add to the Nicolas Cage ‘Losing His S*** Montage’? The answer is no, and Cage is certainly… colorful in Arsenal. He plays Eddie King, rocking the most ridiculous haircut I have seen since the last movie where Cage looked completely absurd (which is like, last year) and is apparently the closest thing to a mobster in Mississippi. There’s a scene where he murders a guy, writes a letter about it, and then reads said letter to a hostage, at one point shouting something about “Riding A F****** Bus”.

Film Review: ‘Arsenal’

6 January 2017 8:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arsenal,” a pulpy crime drama about desperate characters and excessive carnage in Biloxi, Miss., is memorable primarily for some random scraps of loopy dialogue, the credible evocation of a sleazy demimonde rife with white-trash lawbreakers, and yet another Nicolas Cage performance that could be labeled Swift’s Premium and sold by the pound. Decked out in a putty nose, a bad wig, and a fake mustache that resembles an exhausted caterpillar, Cage plays a mood-swinging, coke-addled crime boss with the same manic gusto that lately has distinguished his work in scads of other easy-paycheck misadventures. (You could argue that, at this point, he is to 21st-century VOD fare what Wings Hauser was to ’80s direct-to-video quickies.) And while his over-the-top shtick is perilously nearing the end of its shelf life, Cage routinely dominates each film in which he appears, even when, as happens here, he is off screen for extended periods. »
