The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

29 December 2009 7:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not »

Berenstain Bears Movie Coming to Theaters

5 November 2009 9:32 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

There are only a couple of reason why you clicked through to read this article. A) You have kids and they still enjoy reading the books and watching the cartoons made popular by Jan and Stan Berenstain or B) You have a morbid sense of curiosity and just had to see what all the hubbub is about.

Either way, the news is true; Coming Soon points to a report from USA Today stating that Walden Media has bought the movie rights to produce The Berenstain Bears movie adaptation. The film will be a comedy with a mix of live-action and CGI (of course it will). No 3D has been announced yet, but just wait, it won’t be far behind, I’m sure.

 

On top of grabbing a rather obscure childrens’ property (maybe obscure isn’t the right word, let’s say ‘lesser-known children’s property’) like the Berenstain Bears, »

[DVD Review] Wrong Turn

23 September 2009 7:20 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Working title: “Wrong Turn: With Apologies to the State of West Virginia”

“Killer hicks in the backwoods” as a film premise has been done before. What differentiates Wrong Turn from the rest is that it failed to do it well. It failed to do anything well. Put out a low-budget horror flick starring a sex symbol like Eliza Dushku wandering about in the forest and you’ll make back your production costs off of horny teenage boys alone. Wait for it to hit DVD and you’ll know for certain that you’ve got a franchise on your hands. It’s an unfortunate trend of Hollywood which benefits films like Wrong Turn and the talentless mooks who put them together. So unless you can prove you purchased this Blu-ray for the extra features alone, you’re guilty of perpetuating that cycle yourself. Shame on you.
