‘Skin Trade’ VOD Review

30 June 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Dolph LundgrenTony JaaRon Perlman, Michael Jai White  | Written by | Directed by

Since his role in the blockbusting ensemble piece The Expendables, Dolph Lundgren has been somewhat of a tour-de-force in the world of direct-to-market action flicks. From straight forward action movies like Hard Rush and A Certain Justice, to more fantastical films such Battle of the Damned and Legendary, Lundgren has been tolling away in the genre starring in films that, whilst not all are entirely successful, are ways apart from his pre-Expendables career.

The reason for his recent success, in this reviewers opinion, seems to be his willingness to share the limelight. Where once he may have demanded the mot screen time, a headline on the poster etc., these days his films are more about the ensembles within them. He’s starred alongside the likes of Vinnie Jones, Randy CoutureCung Le (an underrated action star »

‘Falcon Rising’ Review

21 June 2015 10:42 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Neal McDonough, Michael Jai White, Laila Ali, Lateef Crowder, Hazuki Kato, Masashi Odate, Jazmín Caratini, Millie Ruperto, Daniel Cardona, Jimmy Navarro, Arzoris Perez | Written by Y.T. Parazi | Directed by Ernie Barbarash

I am a huge fan of Michael Jai White. From his roles opposite Don “The Dragon” Wilson in Ring of Fire and its second sequel Lion Strike, to the first time I watched his starring role as the titular hero in the movie adaptation of Todd MacFarlane’s Spawn, to his directorial debut Never Back Down 2 (a truly under-rated Dtv action movie sequel), I have sat through and thoroughly enjoyed a Lot of White’s movies.

Until now that is.

As I found with this flick, sometimes as a movie reviewer you come across a film that – despite it, on paper, ticking all your filmic checkboxes – really doesn’t click with you. For me, Falcon Rising is one such movie… »

Here's What Common Looks Like in Costume from the 'Suicide Squad' Set. But What Character Is He?

11 June 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Here's a look at Common in costume on the set of David Ayer's "Suicide Squad," although the character he plays is still a mystery, as it was never formerly announced. Fanboys are speculating online that, based on the tattoos, he's playing a character named Abel Tarrant, a.k.a. Tattooed Man. I guess it's fitting. Who's he? A villain apparently, with the power to turn his tattoos into deadly weapons. Others say that the fangs on the jacket he's wearing suggest that he's playing Bronze Tiger. Who's he? Michael Jai White played the character in previous episodes of the WB's action drama "The Arrow" - a claw-wielding assassin better known as well known to DC Comics »

Missed it in Theatres? Bet Presents World Television Premiere of 'Chocolate City' Tonight, June 10 at 8pm

10 June 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

That was fast! The film opened theatrically on May 22nd, about 3 weeks ago, and fared quite well actually, considering that it's a *smaller* indie film whose widest release was just 24 theaters, and it was in theaters for only 18 days. It grossed over $204,000. If one of those 24 theaters wasn't in your city, or anywhere close to you, and you're interested in seeing the film, you should know that Bet Networks picked it up, and will give it its world television premiere Tonight, June 10, at 8pm Et. I'm only just learning about this, via the press release I received just this morning. “Chocolate City” gives audiences an inside look into the world of male exotic dancers. The movie stars Robert Ri’chard, Michael Jai White, DeRay Davis, Tyson Beckford, Darrin Dewitt Henson and Vivica Fox. Jean-Claude Lamarre wrote and directed. Official synopsis reads: "In 'Chocolate City' the music is hot, »

Friday Foster | Blu-ray Review

9 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Towering aggressively over the legacy of the problematic film movement of 1970s Blaxploitation is the iconic figure of actress Pam Grier, emblazoned in our memories as the self-reliant beauty holding her own (well, mostly) with her male co-stars prior to her white female counterparts, like Sigourney Weaver and Linda Hamilton. She’s an important cinematic figure, and much like the symbolic essence of Marilyn Monroe, her reputation outweighs familiarity with many of the films that brought her iconicity. Arriving in the middle of her gamut of classic titles was 1975’s Friday Foster, of which Grier is the eponymous star. Campy, cringe worthy, and so remarkably asinine it may just as well be classified as sci-fi, production values and an impressive supporting cast surely solidifies the title as requisite viewing for Grier’s fan base. Unfortunately, for all involved, their talents (a common complaint of the genre) are worthy of less slipshod silliness. »

Movie Review – Skin Trade (2014)

28 May 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Skin Trade, 2014.

Directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham.

Starring Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Ron Perlman, Peter Weller, Michael Jai White and Celina Jade.

Synopsis:

After his family is killed by a Serbian gangster with international interests, NYC detective Nick goes to S.E. Asia and teams up with a Thai detective to get revenge and destroy the syndicates human trafficking network.

This long gestating passion project for Dolph Lundgren has finally come to fruition. Originally conceived around 7 years ago when Lundgren read a news story about human trafficking, he’s had a long road waiting for the right circumstances to get the film made. Initially the plot was to take place between New York and Eastern Europe, and at one point even Steven Seagal was tentatively rumoured as a co-star. However after working in Thailand on a film with Tony Jaa (the yet unreleased, A Man Will Rise) Lundgren decided his co-star »

Review: "The Toxic Avenger Part II' (1989), Blu-ray Special Edition From Troma Entertainment

25 May 2015 12:33 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Ernie Magnotta

While working at the Tromaville Health Club in 1984, goodhearted, 98lb. weakling Melvin “The Mop Boy” was tricked into wearing a pink tutu and teased unmercifully until he fell from a two-story window and landed in a vat of nuclear waste. The toxic chemicals changed little Melvin, transforming him into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength. Melvin became The Toxic Avenger, the first superhero from New Jersey!

Written and Directed by the great Lloyd Kaufman (and co-directed by his partner-in-slime, Michael Herz), The Toxic Avenger, which is a thoroughly entertaining and unique combination of the superhero genre, raunchy and over-the-top comedy, as well as full-on horror movie-type gore, not only became an instant hit, but singlehandedly built Troma films (Toxie is the company’s mascot much like Spider-man is to Marvel Comics). The Toxic Avenger character became so popular that, over the years, fans were »

Ricky Schroder Tells Story of War in Afghanistan in Special Series on DirectTV

21 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

You’re Ricky Schroder, and you’re taking a risk like never before.

You’re a Hollywood veteran, but you’ve undertaken a project with no distributor and the most uncertain of futures. You’re basically guaranteed to go over budget — with no revenue in place, what is your budget, anyway? — and even your family is deeply second-guessing your choices.

And then, the bullets start flying.

Making complete irony of his “Silver Spoons” childhood and tackling a reality far beyond the grit of “NYPD Blue,” Schroder took it purely upon himself to lead a nimble crew into the thick of war in Afghanistan — producing what would become “The Fighting Season,” a six-part docuseries that DirecTV’s Audience Network will premiere May 19 after acquiring the rights only three months ago.

“As far as the bullets,” Schroder says, with a remarkable level of perspective, “the thing is, you have to remember it’s not personal. »

Never Back Down 3: Jeeja Yanin, Michael Jai White

12 May 2015 4:55 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

I think many people will be happy with the news that Jeeja Yanin has signed on to star in the International movie series Never Back Down. Jeeja recently starred in Tom Yum Goong 2 and also shot a fight scene for a tv series in Thailand, making her mark on audiences all over the world.

It is fantastic to see Jeeja Yanin getting a role, all her hard work in past movies and constant hard training has paid off and we couldn’t be happier. Michael jai White will also appear in the movie and you never know, we could get a cameo from Tony Jaa if we are lucky.

We shall post news and updates on the movie when we hear more soon.

Film Review: ‘Skin Trade’

8 May 2015 8:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Human trafficking is the window dressing for standard revenge-driven action in “Skin Trade,” a B-grade hybrid of “Taken,” “Commando” and “Rush Hour” that pairs star-producer-co-writer Dolph Lundgren with Thai martial-arts superstar Tony Jaa. Exhibiting little cinematographic flair but an exasperating fondness for hack-and-slash editing during combat scenes, director Ekachai Uekrongtham casts his material as a series of gunfights, fistfights, and emotionally overwrought dramatic scenes, the last of which are marked by Lundgren’s perpetually grimaced brooding and yelling (and rickety-knees gait), and Jaa’s blatant inability to speak more than a few words of intelligible English at a time. The East-meets-West saga opened May 8 in limited release.

Lundgren plays Nick, a Newark, N.J., cop intent on bringing down Serbian sex-slavery bigwig Viktor (Ron Perlman). When he finally does arrest Viktor, he also kills the man’s son, thus driving Viktor to murder Nick’s wife and daughter, and to »

Skin Trade Review

8 May 2015 12:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dolph Lundgren hasn’t enjoyed the same continued prominence as many of his equally hulking, stone-jawed peers – unlike Arnie, who has a new Terminator out this summer, or Sylvester Stallone, who’ll play Rocky again for fall spinoff Creed, the towering Swede has been contained to bargain-bin fare and occasional cameos in The Expendables. And though no one is contesting his ability to throw a punch, Lundgren still hasn’t had his True Lies moment, so to speak.

I wish I could report that Skin Trade was that watershed for the actor, that perfect part to elevate him from man-mountain to dramatic heavyweight – but it’s just not the case. As vengeful New Jersey cop Nick Cassidy, Lundgren is working well within his wheelhouse, and the ease with which the performer manages his dialogue speaks to how standard a part Skin Trade gives him. That shouldn’t come as a surprise – after all, »
