Detention and Covering a lot of Comedic Ground: A Movie Review

Director: Joseph Kahn. Writers: Joseph Kahn and Mark Palermo. Cast: Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook, Spencer Locke, Parker Bagley, Brooke Haven, Walter Perez, Aaron Perilo, Will Wallace, Jesse Heiman, Lindsey Morgan, and Marque Richardson. Detention is only director Joseph Kahn's second film. But, already this filmmaker is showing brilliance in this comedy slash serial killer feature. Kahn's background includes the 2004 action film Torque and a series of music videos. He brings the quick cuts and visual style of music videos to this feature. He also brings many, many pop culture references to what is the funniest film this reviewer has seen so far this year. And kudos to Kahn for creating such a complex storyline that is literally chock full of subplots. The central storyline focuses on Riley (Shanley Caswell) and her crush on Clapton Davis (Josh Hutcherson). She has to compete with Ione (Spencer Locke) for his attentions. And,

Film Review: Joseph Kahn’s Self-Funded Josh Hutcherson Indie ‘Detention’ Deserves Cult-Hit Status

Chicago – Don’t be duped by Joseph Kahn’s insultingly unintelligent trailer for his new Adhd high school slasher/comedy “Detention”. Rather than prematurely blowing his load with the film’s crème de la crème in a two-minute trailer, he’s done the reverse. Kahn – who scraped much of this “indie” film’s $10 million budget from his own pockets – has set up disappointed trailer watchers to discover a hidden gem in his second feature-length film.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Kahn’s fast-paced, Aaron Sorkin-like “Detention” deserves cult-hit status. Just as “The Social Network” embodies our Facebook culture, this SXSW film-festival favorite rewrites today’s high school movie bible.

Despite what this film’s sophomoric trailer might lead you to believe, “Detention” is anything but tenderfoot and witless. And don’t be nauseated by the disenchanting storyline of a killer named Cinderhella stalking the high school student body while a gaggle of co-eds

True Blood Exclusive: Aaron Perilo Talks Blackburn, Avoiding the True Death

  • TVfanatic
Aaron Perilo wants to tell you a lot about Blackburn, his True Blood character who debuted on "Me and the Devil" as one of Bill's sheriff. Really, he does.

"But I can't say too much without getting the truth death from Alan Ball," the actor told me in a TV Fanatic exclusive.

Fair enough. But what can Perilo share?

He'll appear on a total of four episodes and his vampire has been brought to Bon Temps on a "special assignment." It's safe to assume this involves digging up dirt on Marnie and her wiccan pals. But Perilo wouldn't elaborate. Fear of the true death and all.

Perilo was glad to talk about his experience shooting, however. He acted opposite Bill Moyer in his first scene and said the star couldn't have been nicer.

"He's kind of jokey and totally personable," Perilo said. "There were no egos on the set at all.

For all the "True Blood" fans out there, the wait from the end of one season to the start of a new one can be quite grueling. So much so that HBO employed the Twitter hashtag #waitingsucks in its "True Blood" marketing campaigns — and fans couldn't agree more.

Luckily, the waiting game is about to end with the premiere of the fourth season on HBO this Sunday. MTV News spent some quality time with the cast at the show's premiere earlier this week, where we asked the newest faces of "True Blood" to introduce themselves to fans. Very minor spoilers ahead.
