Top 5: Movies from The Asylum

With Sharknado 5 making a splash on TV screens across the globe these past few weeks, what better time to visit the world of The Asylum? With a myriad of films under their belt, from their beginnings as king of the mockbuster to their foray into original film making, it’s no secret we’re big fans of these bastions of the direct to DVD market and have reviewed a Lot of their output! With that in mind, here’s my pick of the Top 5 (because it’s Sharknado Five… geddit?!?) movies from The Asylum in – shock, horror – order of preference…

5) Avengers Grimm

An off-the-wall mix of Grimm Fairy tale characters and superhero team-up movies which, frankly, should have been obvious given the title, Avengers Grimm’s plot is relatively simple: when Rumpelstiltskin uses the Magic Mirror to escapes to the modern world taking Snow White with him and destroying the mirror in the process,

Giancarlo Esposito’s Current TV Roles, Ranked by Increasing Level of Scariness

Giancarlo Esposito’s Current TV Roles, Ranked by Increasing Level of Scariness
Giancarlo Esposito can’t seem to say no. The critical favorite has a long and varied resume on the stage and screen, and his skills as an actor and singer have put him in high demand constantly. In fact, this TV season alone he’s appeared on five different series. And while he may be best known as a certain peddler of poultry, his range extends far beyond that menacing “Breaking Bad” role.

Below, we’ve ranked Esposito’s current roles in order of increasing level of scariness:

5. Sidney Glass/Magic Mirror on “Once Upon a Time” (ABC)

Although he once used to be a Genie of Agrabah, he gave away all of his power and freedom when he decided to stay with his emotional abuser, the Evil Queen, for love. That’s right. He was a fool for love. Now he’s trapped in the mirror and doesn’t

Napa Valley Film Festival Review: ‘Second Nature’

Stars: Collette Wolf, Sam Huntington, Carollani Sandberg, Carolyn Cox, Riley Shanahan, Angela Andrews, David M. Austin, Mary Bayley, Angela Dimarco, Stefan Hajek | Written by Michael Cross, J.C. Ford, Edi Zanidache | Directed by Michael Cross

Second Nature couldn’t have found its place in the world at a more opportune time (What with Trump vs Hillary and all). A balls out funny as hell comedy about a woman who against all the nay-sayers is going to run for Mayor against a womanizing, no morals and for lack of a better word Ass-hole who thinks the job is already sewn up. Seems standard right?? Well no not really throw in a Magic Mirror and some Freaky Friday gender swapping and you have Second Nature.

Without jumping into spoilers though, the kicker is this… It’s not our main characters who have swapped roles like in most of these movies. It is the world around them!

The Jungle Book Wins Again at the Box Office with $60.8M

The Jungle Book Wins Again at the Box Office with $60.8M
With just a few weeks left until Marvel's Captain America: Civil War kicks off the summer movie season, Disney's The Jungle Book put up big numbers in its debut last week, raking in $103.2 million. This weekend, the Disney adventure only went up against one new movie in wide release, Universal's The Huntsman: Winter's War, while a number of other movies like Pantelion's Compadres, Bleecker Street's Elvis & Nixon and Roadside Attractions' The Hologram For the King also debuted in limited release. None of these movies ended up standing a chance against The Jungle Book at the box office this weekend, which won again with an impressive $60.8 million.

The Jungle Book was being projected to drop a healthy 43% in its second frame in theaters, winning for the second week in a row with $59 million, but it ended up faring a bit better than those predictions. According to Box Office Mojo, The Jungle Book

The Huntsman: Winter's War

This review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad...

The Huntsman: Winter’s War, now playing, promises a “new” fairy tale. That’s true only if you’re willing to stretch the definition of the word. This “new” and awkwardly titled picture is both prequel and sequel to Snow White with some Frozen fan fiction in the middle. It begins long before the events of the revisionist Snow White & The Huntsman (2012) and eventually skips ahead to pick up where the last movie left off. In case you’ve forgotten your blockbuster history — spoiler alert! — Snow White and her Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) triumphed at the end by killing the true twin stars of the picture: Queen Ravenna and Her Oscar Nominated Costumes (a.k.a. former Oscar winners Charlize Theron & Colleen Atwood).

Dead though Ravenna was, when there is money to be made in franchise resurrection, nobody stays buried. In

The Huntsman: Winter’s War Review

The movie may function fourfold as a prequel, sequel, spinoff and quasi-remake to the highly budgeted slice of fantasy dreck that was 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman, but it’s surprisingly hard to hate The Huntsman: Winter’s War. That’s not to say it’s a good movie – it manifestly is not – but what director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan and writers Evan Spiliotopoulos and Craig Mazin have wrought is a deeply weird, definitely unnecessary, and frequently entertaining piece of popcorn programming, one that – while existing purely to further Universal’s franchise-first agenda – also possesses a wacky, oddball appeal that its morose predecessor never even attempted to harness.

This is another way of saying that you won’t marvel at anything in The Huntsman on an intellectual or even a cinematic level, but you might be surprised to find yourself appreciating its ridiculous antics and consummate messiness. The film never quite

[Review] The Huntsman: Winter’s War

The level of complication related to relaying the basic facts of The Huntsman: Winter’s War could be seen as the greatest strike against the film. When one has trouble describing the “what” and the “why” of a thing, it can be nearly impossible to move beyond those questions in order to assign any sort of subjective value to the experience of the thing. Existing as it does in a liminal space between sequel and prequel, spin-off and continuation, The Huntsman: Winter’s War is a film that is ungainly in ways both narrative and aesthetic.

It is all the more shocking, then, that in spite of some egregious filmmaking and storytelling missteps, on top of its status as a symbol of everything wrong with our modern filmic obsession with origins and franchises and branded properties, the film still works as both a charming romance and a rollicking adventure tale.

Can 'Winter's War' Take Down 'Jungle Book' at the Box Office?

Can 'Winter's War' Take Down 'Jungle Book' at the Box Office?
While we still have a few weeks until the summer movie season, 2016 is proving that the right movies can put up big numbers early in the year. Deadpool has shattered records since its debut in February, while Zootopia and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have earned big as well. That tradition continued last weekend with The Jungle Book, which nabbed $103.2 million in its debut. This weekend, the Disney adventure goes up against two newcomers, Universal's The Huntsman: Winter's War and Bleecker Street's Elvis & Nixon, neither of which stand a chance against Disney's Jungle Book, according to our estimates from studying Box Office Mojo.

The Jungle Book is being projected to drop a healthy 43% in its second frame in theaters, winning for the second week in a row with $59 million. The Huntsman: Winter's War is expected to debut in second place with $26.3 million, with the top five rounded out by
