'Annie' (2014) Movie Review

17 December 2014 10:31 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The story of the little red-headed orphan who warms the heart of a billionaire is one of the most famous in all of musical theater history. This is mainly due to the fact it has inspired countless little girls to annoyingly sing. The story has already been given two screen adaptations, one for the big screen in 1982 by John Huston and one for the small screen in 1999 by Rob Marshall. So, instead of Sony trying to adapt a musical that has not made it to the screen yet, they have decided to go to the Annie well once more. But this time the plot, setting, and music have been updated for 2014. The result is one of the most charmless movie musicals I have seen in some time. I knew I was in for trouble when the first scene of the film contains two groan-worthy winks at the audience (something that »

If You Thought This Was a Tyler Perry Movie, You Might Be Racist…

18 November 2014 1:30 PM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Phoebe Robinson

I kid, I kid, but I’m also kind of serious. When someone mentions Tyler Perry, it’s only fair to think of him dressing up in old lady drag, bible thumping, and moralizing about how women shouldn’t open their legs for any good looking dude like they are a 24-hour Golden Corral. (Seriously, did you see Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor? Way to send a message to women that if they are not faithful, they’re going to get AIDS and everyone will hate them. Ugh!)

But here’s the thing: Ty Ty isn’t the owner of these kinds of movie tropes, so it’s about time we stop acting like it and recognize other movies that rely on these storytelling motifs. For example:

The Hooker With a Heart of Gold

'Lost Lake': Theater Review

11 November 2014 6:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Over the past ten years or so, starting with his work on HBO’s lamentably short-lived Deadwood and continuing with memorable roles in indies such as Winter’s Bone, Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Sessions, John Hawkes has carved a significant reputation as a protean screen actor, as capable of conveying glinting menace as gentle humanity. It’s rewarding to observe that his lean physicality and haunted everyman expressiveness are no less compelling in his New York stage debut. Add in a flinty co-starring performance from Tracie Thoms and a dependable director like Daniel Sullivan, and you have the makings

Fun Size Horror Film #7: Josh C. Waller’s “The Collection”

31 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This is it, our very last Fun Size Horror short film.  We’ve caught a late-night sacred ceremony, heard voices, seen what happens when you pop in the Ninja Masters IV: The Possession VHS, watched two zombie apocalypse survivors go head-to-head, seen a hand with a face on it puke up bad eggs and experienced the wrath of Mr. Hendrix, but now it’s time to find out what horrors Lance Reddick is capable of in “The Collection,” a short about a young woman who’s thrilled to do a modeling session with a famous photographer (Reddick). This one comes from Josh C. Waller who made his feature directorial debut with Raze starring Zoe Bell.  He’s also behind the crime drama McCanick with David Morse, Cory Monteith and Mike Vogel and is also busy developing three new projects - a genre-bending action film, another about what it takes to »

Crowdfund This: 'Send Me' – New Web Series w/ Tracie Thoms Dealing w/ Black People Sent Back in Time to Slavery Days

13 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Who in their right mind would want to do that? But then again, the premise of the currently-in-development web series is what definitely makes it unique, wouldn’t you agree? Created by playwright, screenwriter and actor Steve Harper, and starring Tracie Thoms ("Annie," "Death Proof," "Looper" among many other film and TV roles), "Send Me" deals with a black woman (Thoms) who has the power to send black people back in time to slavery days. But Harper makes clear to point out that the people who do this in the series are doing it of their own free will:  “It’s not a punishment. They want to »

Raze is Exploitation of Another More Violent Kind: A Movie Review

22 June 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Josh C. Waller. Writers: Robert Beaucage, Kenny Gage and Josh C. Waller. Cast: Zoë Bell, Rachel Nichols, Tracie Thoms and Bruce Thomas. The female prison movies of the '60s and '70s focused on sexploitation. In these films, semi-naked shower scenes and brawls were plentiful. But, the filmmakers of Raze have chosen to alter this genre from the sexy to the blood-filled. In Raze, several characters partake in an all women fighting tournament, which lasts until there is only one survivor. Director Josh C. Waller and the writing team of Robert Beaucage and Kenny Gage have created a thrilling action focused tale, here. Dramatic elements and characterizations are relegated to a few scenes of dialogue and flashbacks. Instead of focusing exclusively on the characters and story, Raze deals with one woman's struggle out of bloodsport and her battle with psychopathic tournament directors. Raze's violent visual spectacle is »

‘Raze’ DVD Review

15 June 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Zoe Bell, Rachel Nichols, Doug Jones, Sherilyn Fenn, Adrienne Wilkinson, Tracie Thoms, Rebecca Marshall, Bailey Anne Borders, Rosario Dawson | Written by Robert Beaucage | Directed by Josh C. Waller

Produced by its star, stuntwoman turned actress Zoe Bell, Raze has seemingly been “coming soon” for an eternity. I distinctly remember first reading about it way back in 2011 and it’s only now, some three years later, that the film is finally seeing the light of day here in the UK. It’s been a long wait but it has Definitely been worth it!

Raze follows kickboxer Sabrina (Bell), who wakes up to find herself in an underground bunker. Soon she realizes that this bunker is actually a modern day coliseum of sorts, where, along with 48 other women, they are condemned to fight each other to the death. The game organizers, turn their kidnapping victims into violent femmes by threatening to »

Raze DVD Review

9 June 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Josh C. Waller

Cast: Zoe Bell, Rachel Nichols, Tracie Thoms, Doug Jones, Sherilyn Fenn, Rosario Dawson

Certification: 15

Running time: 99 minutes

Advertised as having a large female cast, Raze was definitely a title to watch under the judgement of any feminist viewers. However, labelled under the ‘exploitation’ genre, with a narrative containing an extreme amount of violence, the film takes a turn into crazy, nearly-unbelievable town.

Beginning with a blacked-out screen, a message appears detailing how 350,000 American women go missing every year, and that a lot of them are never to be seen again. This then cuts away to a noisy bar scene, with a young couple (and our first female victim) flirting to their hearts’ content. However, when Jamie (Nichols) awakens in a darkened tunnel, and comes face-to-face with the solemn Sabrina, she soon realizes that her evening hadn’t gone completely to plan. Welcome to the coliseum, run »
