Berlin Station exclusive: Hector smells a rat ahead of mother of all twisted finales

Light spoilers What can we say about Sunday’s twisted finale of Berlin Station that won’t anger fans who hate spoilers and those who want no speculation about the action to unfold? Let’s begin by sharing a pretty ambiguous exclusive clip where a phone call between Steven Frost (Richard Jenkins) and Hector Dejean (Rhys Ifans) appears odd and stilted. Hector plays coy about his whereabouts, but why and more importantly, what does he know? What does he remember? The finale promises heart-pounding moments for Sofia Vesik (Katarina Cas), who aims to restore Estonia’s power grid while April Lewis (Keke Palmer) is […]

Second Opinion – Terminal (2018)

Terminal, 2018.

Directed by Vaughn Stein.

Starring Margot Robbie, Mike Myers, Simon Pegg, Max Irons, Dexter Fletcher, Matthew Lewis, and Katarina Cas.

Synopsis:

In the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, Terminal follows the twisting tales of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life.

Do you fancy your Alice In Wonderland mythology with an Eastern European hint of red light district indecency? Ever wonder what Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn would sound like with an Australian accent? Vaughn Stein’s Terminal addresses both questions while messily posing so, so many more. Expect a psychotic standoff between crime lords, hitmen and custodial staff that’s puppeteered by one mad-as-hell vixen hoping not to get burned – like that’s ever a worry given her cool-as-ice kiss.

Ms. Robbie stars as Annie, a contract killer searching for steady work.

The Rift and Returning from the Dead - Again!: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by the film's publicity arm. Directed by: Dejan Zecevic Writers: Barry Keating, Milan Konjevic. Cast: Ken Foree, Katarina Cas, Monte Markham and Dragan Micanovic. With the Eastern Bloc defunct, more and more films are coming out of Eastern Europe nowadays. The Rift bills itself as Serbia's first science fiction film. But, the film sets itself amongst a number of genres. It is essentially a mystery. There are strong elements of action here, as well. When the dead come back to life, there will be gunfire, especially with longtime horror vet' Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead, 1978) starring. The soundtrack is a bit overwhelming; it bounces between instrumentals, rock music and a few other styles. Meanwhile, the film's story covers existentialist themes. This viewer wondered if the film was trying to answer the question: what if Jesus wore a spacesuit? Overall,

‘Danny Collins’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Al Pacino, Annette Bening, Jennifer Garner, Bobby Cannavale, Christopher Plummer, Katarina Cas, Giselle Eisenberg, Melissa Benoist, Josh Peck, Brian Smith, Scott Lawrence | Written and Directed by Dan Fogelman

It is fair to say that Al Pacino has made some questionable decisions as to what movies he has starred in recently. With Danny Collins though he reminds us just how charming he can be, in a movie about reclaiming lost life…. Inspired by a true story, Al Pacino plays Danny Collins an aging 1970s rocker who keeps himself going through the use of coke and alcohol. When his manager and best friend Frank (Christopher Plummer) uncovers a 40-year-old undelivered letter to Danny from John Lennon, it inspires Danny to look back on his life and to his roots. In visiting his home town though and seeking out his family, he may not like what he finds.

Danny Collins – The Review

Is it ever too late to change directions? To mend broken fences, even build new ones? These are the main themes and ideas in the new release that’s being sold as a cutesy look at a mature “quirky” character, a chance to watch some screen vets grabbing some laughs at the expense of their Aarp status. But it goes much deeper than that. The past is not so easily erased and no “free passes” are issued. Oddly something from the long ago past is the catalyst for the title character’s turn-around. Kudos for the film makers for admitting in the post-opening title card that this isn’t a strictly adhered “inspired by true events” work. This gives them much more license for that humor provided by a screen icon now in his fifth decade of stardom. That’s reason enough to make the movie’s title his character’s name,

Danny Collins | Review

Dan in Real Life: Fogelman’s Sugary Directorial Debut Hobbles its Own Charms

Screenwriter and producer Dan Fogelman makes a high profile directorial debut with Danny Collins, nabbing a handful of high profile names to lead his glossy family issue drama wrapped in melodramatic showbiz antics. When he’s not writing directly for children and family friendly audiences (Cars; Bolt; Tangled), Fogelman’s screenplays are often gilded with jejunish countenances (The Guilt Trip; Last Vegas), the types of outrageous yet uncomplicated cinematic fabrications that hail from some medicated hinterland beyond the realm of mere escapism. His first stint as a director finds him returning to this hypertrophic mode of drama wherein potentially insurmountable life tragedies get mushed together to equal one big positive, though kernels of authentic emotions sometimes shine through the contrivances.

Danny Collins (Al Pacino) is an aging rock star currently touring with another greatest hits album.
