Stranded Movie Review 2

26 July 2013 12:21 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Stranded Director: Roger Christian Starring: Christian Slater, Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio, Michael Therriault Rote, declamatory representations of paranoia, fear, delusion and counter-attack get cycled through in “Stranded,” a low-budget science-fiction actioner that unfolds on a heightened emotional pitch which doesn’t leave much room for intrigue or escalating tension. Starring Christian Slater, the futuristic movie is set on the lunar surface, but it lacks the overall virtuosity of “Moon,” the visual elegance of the flawed but interesting “Europa Report,” or even the outlandish lunacy of “Apollo 18.” In short, it’s a paycheck project for all involved, and nothing that those outside of diehard genre completists need waste their time on.  [ Read More ]

Review: Stranded

19 July 2013 5:22 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Seeing movies like Stranded makes one appreciate something like Alien even more. The former is a dime a dozen, while the latter is all too rare. Obviously Ridley Scott’s masterpiece proves what is possible despite a small cast and limited budget and locations. Too often though what we get is something like Stranded, derivative and unimaginative and a total waste of time.

The movie wastes no time getting started. A little more setup might have helped. After being informed that the action takes place on a moon base, a sudden meteor shower damages communication systems and thrusts the four crew members into an emergency situation. Said crew consists of Gerard (Christian Slater), Dr. Krauss (Brendan Fehr), Ava (Amy Matysio), and Bruce (Michael Therriault).

Christian Slater Is ‘Stranded’ In This New Trailer

12 June 2013 12:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I love the fact that Christian Slater is still making movies. My fondness of the actor peaked in 1993 when he assumed the now iconic role of Clarence Worley in the superb Quentin Tarantino scripted and Tony Scott directed True Romance. Around that time he also turned heads book-ending Neil Jordan’s Interview With A Vampire and starred opposite John Travolta’s villain in the not so great Broken Arrow from John Woo.

Twenty years on and Slater is starring in a low budget horror named Stranded, which revolves around four isolated astronauts on board a bio-dome space craft, who experience a ghostly intercession after a meteor storm, leading to paranoia, fear and death. Erm, okay… I’m not sure how this is going to go down, and having not seen it, I can’t comment on the quality of the finished product, but Slater bloodly well deserves a comeback.

Stranded Gets a Release Date, New Artwork, and a Trailer

11 June 2013 9:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Image Entertainment has set a July 26 theatrical release date for Stranded, the new film from Roger Christian, which stars Christian Slater and his miraculously returning hairline; and we have a new one-sheet and trailer to go along with it!

Slater plays Gerard, and the story centers on a series of terrifying events that take place aboard the Ark moon base. When a meteor suddenly collides with their base, the astronauts find themselves in immediate danger. The crew members quickly learn that spores from the meteorite can replicate cell structure, reproduce, and mutate, forcing everyone on board to fight for their lives.

Ava, the only female astronaut, becomes infected, showing signs of pregnancy at a rapid rate. Within 36 hours she gives birth to a creature that mutates into the life form of another crew member. As the astronauts begin to experience this sinister presence, the virus spreads, and Gerard urges for the killing of Ava. »

New Trailer for Low Budget Sci-Fi 'Stranded' with Christian Slater

10 June 2013 12:42 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What if she's right? What if there's something else inside the station?" Image Entertainment has debuted the official Us trailer for Stranded, a very low budget indie sci-fi film from Roger Christian about a space station gone awry after a meteor storm. The international cast is lead by Christian Slater, but includes Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio and Michael Therriault. We featured an early promo trailer when this was selling in Berlin, but this is a brand new trailer and it has some cool twists in the second half with the repeating "I'm not going insane!" line. That's about all to appreciate though, as this otherwise looks terrible. Here's the official release trailer for Roger Christian's Stranded, in high def from Apple: Four isolated astronauts on board a bio-dome space craft, experience a ghostly intercession after a meteor storm, leading to paranoia, fear and death. The film was produced by Minds Eye Entertainment in Canada. »

DVD Review - Stranded (2013)

28 May 2013 2:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stranded, 2013.

Directed by Roger Christian.

Starring Christian Slater, Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio, and Michael Therriault.

Synopsis:

Four isolated astronauts on board a bio-dome space craft experience a ghostly intercession after a meteor storm, leading to paranoia, fear and death.

I was trapped watching Stranded. Trapped on a train travelling home from London. There was nowhere to go and I had to watch it. Twenty minutes into the film my daughter told me she “couldn’t watch anymore of this” and went back to taking pictures of cups for Instagram. I envied her.

A fair few years back a group of friends, my wife and I attempted to create an “A to Z of B-Movies Available to Rent and Buy”. We had no idea where it would go, but our goal was to make a book about these films. After about four films we couldn’t continue due to the awful task we’d set ourselves. »

‘Stranded’ Review

28 May 2013 5:10 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Christian Slater, Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio, Michael Therriault | Written by Christian Piers Betley | Directed by Roger Christian

Whereas the name Christian Slater once meant a sign of a great movie (I’m thinking of the likes of Heathers, Mobsters, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and his magnum opus, Pump Up the Volume), today it tends to mean low-budget, badly scripted straight to DVD fodder. The last Slater film I watched, Sofia, was a bit of a mess. The film could have been an action-packed espionage thriller, but instead the film saw both actor and director seemingly out of their depth – with Slater literally trying to “act” like a tough guy without backing it up with any actual physicality. So I approached Stranded with a bit of trepidation, even moreso given that director Roger Christian was responsible for the atrocity that was Battlefield Earth

Stranded for Eighty Minutes: A Movie Review

26 May 2013 10:18 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Roger Christian. Writer: Christian Piers Betley. Cast: Christian Slater, Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio and Michael Therriault. This reviewer is going to have to remind himself to avoid direct-to-dvd releases starring actor Christian Slater (Playback). The last several releases that have hosted this actor have not been great, or even watchable. Slater's latest, Stranded, is another lackluster effort. And this time, events take place, B-movie style, in space. Stranded borrows several sci-fi elements from other films and the delivery of this space set semi-thriller is lackluster. The film follows four crew members on the Moon Base Ark or Vargas. A meteor strike knocks out their communications (of course) and there is a general loss of power, heat and oxygen supplies. To top it off, the meteors contain an alien spore, which is soon contaminating everyone and everything, including character Ava's (Amy Matysio) womb. A creature is hatched and air ducts are used for devious. »

If I Were You Movie Review

16 March 2013 3:11 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: If I Were You Director: Joan Carr-Wiggin Starring: Marcia Gay Harden, Leanor Watling, Aidan Quinn, Joseph Kell, Michael Therriault, Gary Piquer, Bethany Jillard, Elizabeth Whitmere, Claire Brosseau An odd little duck of a film, writer-director Joan Carr-Wiggin’s “If I Were You” kicks around enjoyably for quite a while in the same sandbox as some of Woody Allen’s mid-career farces, before eventually pivoting and skipping off into less rewarding territory. The story of a woman who accidentally learns of her husband’s infidelity and then enters into a strange friendship and pact with his unwitting mistress, this bouncy but meandering comedy would benefit from an editorial haircut that trims down some of its less inspired subplots. It’s  [ Read More ]

Take A Look At Christian Slater’s Sci-Fi Horror Stranded!

12 February 2013 12:54 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

So, Christian Slater stars in some sci-fi horror titled Stranded? Had no idea, but let’s take a look! We have the first trailer, poster and some pretty weird images from the whole thing, and I guess that Slater’s (and only Slater’s) fans will enjoy. The movie comes from director Roger Christian and revolves around four isolated astronauts who experience a ghostly intercession after a meteor storm, leading to paranoia, fear and death. Or something like that… Roger Christian directed this sci-fi nightmare from a script written by Christian Piers Betley, and beside Slater, the rest of the cast also includes Amy Matysio, Michael Therriault, and »
