[DVD Review] The People I've Slept With

28 March 2011 1:35 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Explorations of female sexuality have always faced considerably more resistance than those espousing the media dominating male sex drive, wherein a man who sleeps with numerous women (James Bond) is applauded. It’s a paradigm that really only flows in one direction and filmmakers have been expounding on that hypocrisy for ages. Some films turn the concept on its head in elegant ways while others do it with all the subtlety of a kick to the head. The People I’ve Slept With falls into the latter category, but it’s not without its charm.

Nikki (Karin Anna Cheung) likes sex. Whether or not society thinks that ladylike doesn’t really matter to her; she likes sex. Each night brings a different conquest which she catalogs with a small picture of the night’s stud memorialized with a nickname like “Mystery Man”. These are her trophies, and consequently her best »

New this Week: ‘Sucker Punch,’ and ‘The Tourist (DVD)’

23 March 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick RulesZachary Gordon, Devon Bostick, Robert Capron

Sucker PunchEmily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm

Movie of the Week

Sucker Punch

The Stars: Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm

The Plot: A young girl (Browning) is institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility.

The Buzz: It’s certainly a great time to be a fifteen-year-old boy, isn’t it? It’s a shame I’m twenty years past my prime – Sucker Punch would have been 100% pure Pavlovian arousal for me back then. The batch of battling bombshells cartwheeling in all their gorgeously rendered video-game glory, coupled with the film’s flawless focus on, and impenetrable belief in, the great escape that can »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Twelve

8 March 2011 6:44 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Scream 4

Opens: April 15th 2011

Cast: Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Mary McDonnell, Emma Roberts Director: Wes Craven

Summary: Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with family and friends, but it also brings about the return of Ghostface which puts the whole town in danger.

Analysis: Back in late 1996 when I first began covering film news, "Scream" was released and became more than just a sleeper hit. After years of genre movies being relegated to direct-to-video status, this comedic slasher spawned the biggest surge in the horror film genre since "Halloween" almost two decades before. Its post-modern stylings and witty self-aware dialogue went on to be a big influence on films and television in general.
