Lockhart, Nick Mason, Amber Martinez, Michelle Campbell, Angelica Cassidy, Ewart Chin | Written by Ron Carlson, Hank Braxtan, Dan Sinclair | Directed by Ron Carlson

Giant Killer Ants takes a trip down peyote-lane with a 1980s glam rock band who have only had one hit, and they plan to rejuvenate their career by heading to a music festival in the middle of the desert. It isn’t as simple as going out and rocking out though, because they are attacked by, you guessed it, Giant Ants!

I love the concept. A comedy film about a

Meet the Military Adviser Who Helped Bring Realism to ‘Platoon’ and ‘Saving Private Ryan’

Meet the Military Adviser Who Helped Bring Realism to ‘Platoon’ and ‘Saving Private Ryan’
Military adviser Dale Dye may have done more to help Hollywood deliver an accurate portrayal of war than anyone else in the business. From “Platoon” and “Saving Private Ryan” to “The Thin Red Line” and his most recent work, 2019’s “The Last Full Measure,” his attention to detail — along with his boot camp methods for teaching actors to be soldiers — share a singular vision: realism.

A veteran of three tours in Vietnam, Dye was a Marine correspondent awarded the Bronze Star for heroism in action. He’s equal parts storyteller, military historian and psychologist, and his performance prep goes where others fail to tread: into actors’ heads.

Born in 1944, in Cape Girardeau, Mo., Dale tagged along with his father, a liquor salesman, as he stocked local bars. Hearing war tales from the clientele, the youngster became fascinated with the military. After the Naval Academy turned down his application, he enlisted at age 20 in the Marines,

But once he did, Richards agreed to set an extra plate. "Even a hooker deserves to have Thanksgiving dinner," she said during a confessional. Richards filed for divorce...

‘You Don’t Nomi’ Review: Disjointed ‘Showgirls’ Doc Won’t Reach Cult Status — Tribeca

‘You Don’t Nomi’ Review: Disjointed ‘Showgirls’ Doc Won’t Reach Cult Status — Tribeca
It’s a shame that “You Don’t Nomi,” a new documentary about the failure and reevaluation of Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 pulp film “Showgirls,” doesn’t live up to its truly inspired title. A play on the movie’s enigmatic, beguiling, and totally unhinged protagonist Nomi Malone, played by Elizabeth Berkeley in a career-defining (and -ending) role, the title calls to mind Lesley Gore’s 1963 classic “You Don’t Own Me” — a connection that amuses at first glance, but becomes quite tenuous once you think about it. The same could be said for “You Don’t Nomi.”

For the uninitiated, “Showgirls” follows a young Nomi Malone as she arrives in Las Vegas with dreams of becoming a dancer. Fresh off the success of “Basic Instinct,” Verhoeven attracted top-tier talent of the era like Kyle MacLachlan and Gina Gershon, both of whom thought they were signing onto a grittier, more daring “Basic Instinct.

What’s New on DVD in April: ‘If Beale Street Could Talk,’ ‘Destroyer,’ ‘Tickled’ and More
New Indie

Filmmakers have made the case that, instead of going to film school, young would-be directors might be better off just listening to director commentaries. And if that’s the educational route you’ve chosen, two of today’s most interesting directors are telling all on new Blu-ray releases. Want to know more about how Barry Jenkins brought James Baldwin’s powerful novel “If Beale Street Could Talk” (20th Century Fox Home Entertainment) to the big screen, or how Karyn Kusama crafted the bleak neo-noir “Destroyer” (20th Century Fox Home Entertainment)? They tell all on these essential new releases.

Also available: S. Craig Zahler is at it again with “Dragged Across Concrete” (Lionsgate), a cops-gone-rogue heist saga starring Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson.

Blu-ray Review – Terra Formars (2016)

Terra Formars, 2016.

Directed by Takashi Miike.

Starring Rinko Kikuchi, Rila Fukushima, Shun Oguri, Emi Takei, Kane Kosugi, and Hideaki Itô.

Synopsis:

In the 24th century a group of social misfits are sent to Mars on a mission to destroy cockroaches sent there years before, only the roaches have evolved slightly.

Based on the manga series and directed by maverick filmmaker Takashi Mike, Terra Formars (do you see?) has all of the ingredients for a Starship Troopers-style romp of mindless violence, bizarre characters and total carnage, and to a point it does deliver all of those, but somewhere along the way there is a bit of a conflict regarding what kind of movie the filmmakers wanted the finished product to be and what we end up with falls a little short of expectations.

But only a little short, mind. For the first hour Terra Formars races along at a fair old pace,

Movie Review – Greta (2019)

Greta, 2019.

Directed by Neil Jordan

Starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Isabelle Huppert, Maika Monroe, Colm Feore, and Stephen Rea.

Synopsis:

After finding a handbag left in a Subway car, a young woman befriends the bag’s older owner, but finds it increasingly difficult to end the relationship when Greta gets a little too close for comfort.

Tiptoeing gleefully to the sound of Chopin, Greta is not your average, possibly French, lady. Played by Isabelle Huppert, Greta lives alone in a rough area of New York, a world away from the noise and pace of the lifestyle of mid-20s Frances (Chloe Grace Moretz). After finding and returning Greta’s lost handbag, the two begin an unlikely friendship that edges uncomfortably towards surrogate motherhood. But when the reality of Greta’s psyche becomes more unsettlingly clear to Frances, it might be too late to separate from an increasingly strange relationship.

Stranger Things: Here's Why You Recognize Hawkins's Terrifying Journalist
Extra, extra! There's a new journalist at The Hawkins Post who's about to stir up trouble on Stranger Things. Fortifying its rock-solid main cast with new characters, the Netflix series' third season will introduce us to sketchy reporter Bruce, an up-to-no-good newsie with questionable morals and a twisted comedic sensibility. If the baddie in the latest season three trailer looks familiar to you, that's because you've probably seen him before. Bruce is played by none other than Jake Busey, who's been terrifying us for years with his wild-card characters on TV and in films. And yes, if you recognize that last name, he is indeed Gary Busey's son.

The 47-year-old actor is known for his part as evil serial killer Johnny Bartlett in the 1996 film The Frighteners (below). According to Busey, the Duffer Brothers loved him in that movie so much that they created the character Bruce just for him.

How Denise Richards Has Completely Reinvented Herself

Once upon a time Denise Richards was the young woman that many men wanted to fantasize about because quite honestly she was gorgeous (she still is) and she had a career that kept her in the spotlight and excited pretty much everyone when it was discovered that she was going to be one of featured stars. From the moment she was seen in Starship Troopers it was assumed that she was going to be a big star, despite the fact that this wasn’t her first movie. But when Wild Things came along starring her and Neve Campbell, another popular actress

Shauna tried to shut down her daughter's curiosity, insisting she drop the search, but Flo wasn't going to give up that easily. Shauna

‘Love, Death & Robots’ Review: Netflix’s ‘Heavy Metal’ For Post-Millennials

Remember Heavy Metal, the 1981 animated movie based on the French magazine Métal Hurlant? That feature-length hodgepodge of stories about stoner aliens, voluptuous androids, horny space travelers, dragon-riding heroines in dominatrix gear and other interstellar-overdriven pulp touches? “A step beyond science fiction” was the tagline; a 13-year-old boy peering at intricate drawings of rayguns and boobies with a flashlight under the sheets was the vibe. For a generation of geeks, this was solid gold. Fast forward to right now — past the years of Spike & Mike’s Twisted Animation festivals and MTV’s Liquid Television,

‘Captain Marvel’ Film Review: Brie Larson Packs a Punch in Effective, Sometimes Obvious, Marvel Saga

‘Captain Marvel’ Film Review: Brie Larson Packs a Punch in Effective, Sometimes Obvious, Marvel Saga
Captain Marvel,” the first Marvel adaptation both to star a woman and to be co-directed by a woman, is an obvious, crude, and transparent film. And it’s also quite enjoyable and evocative — most of the time.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s take on the Carol Danvers origin story jettisons subtlety in its messaging of female empowerment and anti-imperialism to varying degrees of success. At times, the film has all the makings of a wildly effective Nike commercial. You know the kind, girls falling down and getting up again, withstanding jeers and taunts until you’re weeping on your couch? But the two co-directors, working from a script they co-wrote with Geneva Robertson-Dworet, have seemingly taken a tip from all that surrounds them in 2019 that renders subtlety obsolete and beats on some well-worn sexist tropes with a story that screams: “I guess you did not hear us when we

‘Level 16’ Review: Dir. Danishka Esterhazy (2019)

Level 16 review: Members of a female facility that teaches the values of feminine virtues begin to question the world around them in this female-dominated, timely slice of dystopian science-fiction.

Clout Communications

Obedience, cleanliness, patience and humility. These are just four of the seven ‘feminine virtues’ that the ‘clean’ girls of Level 16 adhere to. Rescued from a polluted and deadly world, the young women of the Vestalis Academy have spent their lives living underground in a heavily guarded ward following strict rule and regulations. After an incident on Level 10 when they were young, close friends Vivien (Katie Douglas) and Sophia (Celina Martin) are reunited on Level 16 at which point Sophia begins to open Vivien’s eyes to the dark truth behind their enforced captivity.

The story of writer and director Danishka Esterhzy’s Level 16 sounds like it could have been lifted straight out of the page of a Young Adult novel.
