A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III Review: Sheen’s Still Got It, But The Script’s A Mess

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

It doesn’t take a Holmesian level of deduction to realise that the titular protagonist of Roman Coppola’s second feature isn’t a million miles away from the troubled star who plays him; for all intents and purposes, the headcase calling himself Charles Swan III (or Charlie, as his friends refer to him) might as well be Charlie Sheen, who no doubt saves money on therapy bills by working through some of his personal issues on screen here.

Swan is a hotshot graphics designer in the 1970s, and when his girlfriend Ivana (Katheryn Winnick) dumps him, his life crashes down around him. Caught between two extremes – of wanting to win Ivana back and vowing never to speak to her again – Charles meanwhile seeks counsel in his friend Kirby (Jason Schwartzman) and manager Saul (Bill Murray), and tries to contend with nagging health issues, as well

Choose – Review

Slasher films are a dime a dozen. Studios and independents alike spit out flicks with masked killers whose prime objective is to seek out and kill horny teens. Most of the time these flicks are nothing more than flat representations of those that came before them. Choose, a slasher/thriller with a little who-done-it thrown into the mix is a perfect example of a film that almost hit the mark, but unfortunately fails to engage its audience.

The story follows burgeoning journalist student Fiona Wagner (Katheryn Winnick) as she follows leads fed to her by the killer himself. Fiona’s father (Kevin Pollak) happens to be the town Sheriff, who doesn’t want his daughter involved in his case. While Choose has an interesting killer that forces his victims to choose between losing something they love or death, his methods are a reminiscent of a certain serial killer with a penchant for traps,

The Anniversary at Shallow Creek and Shallow Predictability: A Movie Review

*a screener of this film was provided by

Breaking Glass Pictures.

**here be spoilers.

Director: Jon D. Wagner.

Writers: Eric Fischer and Brianna Lee Johnson.

The latest indie flick to come out of distribution house Breaking Glass Pictures is The Anniversary at Shallow Creek. This title releases on DVD July 5th and coincidently, this is a day that you will want to stay away from digital rental shops and Netflix queues. Bathed in horror cliches, The Anniversary at Shallow Creek is a B-movie that does not break any molds. Also, the film does not show any depth in story or characters and watching this film is much like being in detention or in a prison cell; you just do not want to be there.

The sound is on cue, but the camera used for photography seems overly bright for exterior shots and the picture is dull for interior sequences. The

Trailer debut: Philip K. Dick's Radio Free Albemuth

Based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, Radio Free Albemuth follows the awakening of record store owner, Nicholas Brady, through visions communicated from a satellite of unknown origins (though probably Valis). Under guidance from his visions, Nic rises up against the world's fascist government masquerading as the United States of America.

We've been following development on the film for a while now, and even reviewed a workprint that played at last year's SciFi London. I've seen it too and can tell you it's well done and faithful to Dick's style and intentions. So yeah, we're thrilled to finally bring you Dick heads the first trailer.

Synopsis:

Berkeley record store clerk Nick Brady (Jonathan Scarfe) begins to experience strange visions from an entity he calls Valis that cause him to uproot his family and move to Los Angeles where he becomes a successful music company executive. With the help of best friend,

Choose to Live or Die: A Movie Review

Director: Marcus Graves.

Writers: Brandon Camp and Mike Thompson.

Choose is a film from director Marcus Graves, which premiered at the 2010 Frightfest Halloween All-Nighter in Leicester Square (Quiet Earth). Recently, the film was released on DVD in the United Kingdom through G2 Pictures. The film stars some notables such as Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects), Bruce Dern (Monster) and Katheryn Winnick (Amusement). Each actor does their best to sell a tense thriller, but the musical work of Nathan Larson is what creates much of the tension. The story brings back the ancient Jewish law of an eye for an eye for eye, or in this case a life for a life, in what is a mostly solid thriller.

Winnick plays Fiona, a woman stalked by a masked killer. Before the final confrontation, several appearingly random people are subjected to torture and dismemberment, with few actual choices. The connections become clearer later on,
