Exclusive: Tony Danza Threatens Chris Penn In Clip From Thriller 'Aftermath'

1 December 2014 12:26 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

All it takes is one misunderstanding for things to spiral out of control, and that simple idea is the basis of the upcoming darkly comic thriller "Aftermath." Today we have an exclusive clip that gives you a sense how those two tones are balanced in this unique genre exercise. Starring Anthony Michael Hall, the late Chris Penn (in his final performance), Tony Danza, Elisabeth Rohm, Lily RabeFrank Whaley, and written and directed by Thomas Farone, the movie tells the story of Thomas Fiorini, a successful developer who seems to have it all, only to have things come a screeching halt when Tom’s lead foreman Matt and subcontractor Tony start to compete for top position in the company. And when Matt disappears and Tom gets fired, the tension rises in the scene below. "Aftermath" is now playing in New York City and opens in Los Angeles on December 5th. »

Vacancy (2007) review

Vacancy (2007)

Directed By: Nimród Antal

Written By: Mark L. Smith

Starring: Kate Beckinsale (Amy Fox), Luke Wilson (David Fox), Frank Whaley (Mason), Ethan Embry (Mechanic), Scott G. Anderson (Killer), Mark Casella (Truck Driver), David Doty (Highway Patrol)

Vacancy” is a commendable effort to restore thrills and tension in modern horror, which is something lost in films of this genre now. It takes on a modern take of “Psycho” with a lone motel scenario with fewer characters. It manages to merge themes from the exploitation sub genre to fit with a modern audience. “Vacancy” is a refreshing horror film that avoids heavy gore as the selling point.

A married couple, whose relationship is on the fritz, car breaks down near a small isolated motel in hopes to stay overnight until they get their car fixed the next day. Unfortunately, what was seemingly a harmless visit »

Review: 'Gotham' - 'The Balloonman'

6 October 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Gotham" coming up just as soon as I'm hoisted by my own petard... Though the show's narrative continues to sprawl all across Gotham's underworld, "The Balloonman" was in many ways the most focused episode of the show so far. It hasn't turned into a Crime of the Week procedural with superhero trappings yet — though if a version of that existed and could feature lengthier "Harvey Bullock, man about town" montages, I don't know that I would mind — but the hunt for the eponymous vigilante linked a number of stories thematically, even when characters in one subplot weren't interacting with those in another. The Balloonman (played, in Narrative of Recognizable Guest Star Economy fashion, by Dan Bakkedahl) turns out to be a harbinger of things to come in Gotham, and his brief reign of terror is greeted very differently in different parts of the city.

Gotham episode 2 review: Selina Kyle

1 October 2014 12:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Gotham’s slow-moving sophomore episode was a bit of a mixed bag. Here’s Rob’s review of Selina Kyle…

This review contains spoilers

1.2 Selina Kyle

Last week on this site we were praising Gotham’s pilot episode for shying away from freak-of-the-week scripting and embracing expressionistic flair on the directorial side. We claimed it could be a worthy peer to much-loved crime series like Broadchurch and The Sopranos, and that the show felt vastly different to its closest comparison point, Arrow. However, before the title card had arrived in the second episode, we’d started wondering whether we had totally misread the intentions that the pilot put forward.

Indeed, this episode’s opening gambit came straight from the Arrow playbook – introduce a bizarre new adversary, show them doing something cruel, cue title card. As warning signs go, that seemed like quite a blatant one. Not least because the newly-introduced »

‘Gotham’ Recap: The Terrific “Selina Kyle” Is Only Sort of About Selina Kyle

30 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Calling the second episode of Gotham “Selina Kyle” is just a wee bit disingenuous. It’s not so much a Selina Kyle episode- for one thing, she refuses to be called Selina Kyle, and any attempt to say those words around her will cause an immediate correction with the proper nomenclature: “cat.” Expecting “Selina Kyle” to include any in-depth look at a young Catwoman’s psyche is a fool’s game. This one’s not about our future clawed criminal; it just happens to involve her, as a victim of our Batman villain of the week (even if it seemed like Gotham wouldn’t be doing that). Like last time, Gordon and Bullock take the lead, on the trail of the little-known, little-seen, probably-murderous Dollmaker. So yeah, kind of a misnomer with the “Selina Kyle” thing. Also the Dollmaker isn’t even the biggest villain this week, instead, that’s left up to two very capable character »

Movie Review – Rob the Mob (2014)

30 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rob the Mob, 2014.

Directed by Raymond De Felitta.

Starring Michael Pitt, Nina Arianda, Andy Garcia, Ray Romano, Aida Turturro and Frank Whaley.

Synopsis:

In an attempt to escape their humdrum existence and two bit jobs with a debt collection agency, New Yorkers Tommy and Rosie Uva hatch a clever plan to rob some local mafia members of their ill gotten gains.  The success of their initial raid results in a sudden fame and notoriety, which goes to their heads with disastrous results.

When you think of the classic gangster films, certain elements and examples stand out.  Grit, violence and an underlying heavy air of menace, colour the stories which unfold on screen: highlights of the genre include such films as the Godfather trilogy and later exercises like Goodfellas and Casino.  With this in mind Rob The Mob –  the latest film from New York born director Raymond De Felitta – should have »

Gotham Recap: Kitten's Got Claws

29 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fox’s Gotham thus far has had two weeks to offer a taste for what it can do, and what it can do well.

And while the series premiere was generally strong and indicated promise, this week’s episode, “Selina Kyle,” unfortunately fell into the first category.

Make no mistake, I can enjoy a police procedural (which, let’s face it, this show will more often than not need to be). But in such a scenario, I need to see the detectives be uniquely »

Review: 'Gotham' - 'Selina Kyle'

29 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Gotham" coming up just as soon as I'm a monkey riding a racehorse... Second episodes are tough for any new show, let alone with this many moving and potentially mismatched parts, and one that had such a lush-looking pilot. But "Selina Kyle" felt very much of a piece with last week's episode, in both its strengths and weaknesses. Jim and Harvey's partnership remains the big draw, even as Bruno Heller's script has to keep beating us over the head with the notion that everyone believes Jim has gone over to the dark side with his apparent murder of Oswald Cobblepot(*). (Those constant references were just as clumsy as Edward Nygma's introduction in the pilot.) It's fun watching McKenzie and Logue bounce off of each other, and seeing the ways in which Harvey can sometimes pull Jim over to his way of thinking (the phone book »

Gotham Recap: “Selina Kyle”

29 September 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In the Gotham series premiere, viewers were introduced to a world without Batman that nonetheless featured many of the other heroes and villains from the storied franchise.  While the characters seem comfortable in their small-screen iterations, some of the actors are still working out the kinks.  It's early yet, but the frontrunner for "Best Scenery Chewer" so far is Jada Pinkett Smith in her turn as ambitious gangster Fish Mooney.  Detective James Gordon is obviously the show's lead and the city's lone straight arrow, but Ben McKenzie hasn't yet figured out the balance of noble hero and noir tough guy; instead he winds up just scowling a lot.  In between, however, we have quite a bit of potential, specifically in the performances of youngsters David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova, and relative newcomer Robin Lord Taylor.  Thankfully the show's second episode gives each of them a share of the spotlight.  Hit »

Ror Reviews: Gotham Season 1, Episode 2 - "Selina Kyle"

29 September 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After a decent pilot, Fox's Gotham returned tonight with a significantly better second episode. "Selina Kyle", as the title infers, places the focus on the acrobatic young street kid (she likes to be called "Cat"; evidently saving the "Woman" for when she's a bit older) who witnessed the Wayne murders in the first ep. This time though, she's a witness to another crime: The abduction of some of her street pals by a couple of sinisterly friendly crims (guest stars Frank Whaley and Lili Taylor). As Gordon and Bullock get word and set out to investigate, to avoid a trip to juvenile detention Selina decides to find Gordon first and tell him what she knows about who really killed Thomas and Martha Wayne. Meanwhile, the increasingly psychopathic Oswald manages to hitch a ride and hatches a scheme to get some cash and return to Gotham to seek revenge. There's much »
