‘Bunker: Project 12′ Review

Stars: James Cosmo, Joaquín Sánchez, Natasha Alam, Eric Roberts, Timothy Gibbs, Tony Corvillo, James Conner Ferguson, José Luis de Madariaga | Written by Joaquín Sánchez, Jaime Falero | Directed by Jaime Falero

Released way back in 2016 here in the UK, Bunker: Project 12 was, at the time, billed as “Outpost meets The Terminator” which is actually rather apt… Bizarre scientific experiments taking place during times of war, ala Outpost and its Nazi zombies; and cyborg killing machines ala The Terminator. Because Bunker: Project 12 touches on both of those.

You see the back story goes that the Russians were working on a secret project to win the Cold War, an army of cyborg super-soldiers – the titular Project 12 – however realising the dangers of unleashing their creation on the world they scrap the dangerous scientific project and bury it forever in the “bunker” of the title. But… Cut to present day and greedy-ass businessman

Film Review: ‘Reprisal’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Reprisal’
In a previous iteration of the movie business, a derivative B movie such as “Reprisal” would have provided gainful employment for actors such as Eric Roberts, Ice-t, and Gary Busey — who, truth to tell, likely would have delivered more than a fair share of down-and-dirty cheap thrills — and premiered on the New Releases shelf at Blockbuster Video stores everywhere. That was then, this is now: Fodder of this kind can land at least a smattering of theatrical engagements on the same day it’s made available on demand. And yet, it probably, and deservedly, will have an even shorter shelf life than direct-to-video product of yesteryear, despite the marquee value of Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo in lead roles.

Indeed, with all due respect to Willis, whose admirable professionalism permits him to bring a second dimension to the flat role he’s given here, the few curiosity-seekers who bother to

Filming to begin on 90 Feet From Home starring Shawn Michaels, Eric Roberts and Dean Cain

Director Brett Bentman is gearing up to begin production on his next film 90 Feet From Home.

The film follows a troubled former Major League Baseball player who returns home to confront his abusive stepfather, played by WWE legend Shawn Michaels. Also featuring in the cast are Eric Roberts, Dean Cain, Steven Michael Quezada, Alexandria DeBerry, Adam Hampton and Thom Hallum.

“This story really hits the mark with just about anyone who’s ever been on the downside of luck,” states Bentman. “It strikes a chord and touches so many different aspects of love, or lack there of it, abuse, success and isolation. I think anyone who watches the film will come away with a fresh look at what they’ve been through themselves.”

“Shawn’s character, Jimmy Devine, is the definition of life,” he continues. “Ups and downs and often times not getting exactly what you want. When we

King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen

Tfh Fearless Leader Joe Dante very astutely tip-toes around Larry Cohen’s stylistic filmmaking identity early on in King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen. Dante notes, “I would hardly call him the John Cassavetes of exploitation movies, but he does have a certain raw, visceral, realistic style.” Indeed, Larry Cohen’s signature film, Q: The Winged Serpent (1982), feels like what would happen if John Cassavetes directed a Ray Harryhausen film. And movie fans the world over are all the better for that most unlikely of authorial fusions!

For cineastes in La, King Cohen debuts Friday, July 20th, at Laemmle’s Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre. There will be supplemental shows on the 23rd at the NoHo 7, and the Laemmle Monica on the 26th. It will expand to other select markets on July 27th (keep a sharp eye on the flick’s official site for further screening details). The

The Dark Knight 10 Years Later: Still the Best Comic Book Movie Ever Made

The Dark Knight 10 Years Later: Still the Best Comic Book Movie Ever Made
There is little that can be said, in terms of praise, when it comes to The Dark Knight that hasn't been said already. Despite that, I recently revisited Christopher Nolan's masterpiece in honor of its 10th anniversary to see what I could come up with anyway. To start, this movie hasn't aged a day in an entire decade and it quite simply gets better every single time I watch it. This time, I was lucky enough to see it at an anniversary screening on a massive outdoor screen with pyrotechnics and other fancy business such as that built into the presentation. As cool as that may have been, there is little that can be done to improve upon perfection.

Before digging in, I have to admit up top that I've never been a big DC fan, always more of a Marvel guy. Further, Batman has always been one of my least favorite heroes.
