The Baytown Outlaws (2012) - News Poster


Film Review: ‘Braven’

Film Review: ‘Braven’
Some of the most impressive first features are those that don’t appear to be first features at all – that, instead, seem like the work of a seasoned pro who commits fully to familiar material, and somehow reinvigorates clichés and conventions. “Braven” marks the directorial debut of Lin Oeding, a veteran stunt coordinator and second unit director whose credits run the gamut from high-end studio projects (“The Equalizer,” “Inception”) to guilty-pleasure genre pastiches (“The Baytown Outlaws,” “Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning”), so it’s hardly surprising that the fight scenes and run-and-gun clashes here are brutally efficient and efficiently brutal. What is unexpected is Oeding’s confidently unhurried, no-sweat approach to introducing characters and connections, and his straightforward, almost aggressively non-flashy attentiveness to such niceties as spatial relationships and cause-and-effect details during the rough stuff. If Don Siegel or John Sturges had lived long enough to try his hand at a VOD-centric melodrama, it probably

'Avengers' Box Set, 'Hemingway & Gelhorn' and More on DVD and Blu-ray This Week

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled (10-Disc Limited Edition Six-Movie Collector's Set) Blu-ray After some legal issues the Blu-ray box set for Phase 1 of Marvel's Avengers franchise is available featuring Blu-ray versions (and 3-D versions where applicable) of The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk for $149.49. Now I don't know about you, but a bunch of plastic stuff and promotional paper is hardly worth spending $25 per title, especially when you know there are more around the corner and sooner or later that briefcase you purchased will be merely collecting dust in the corner. Yet, it's your money, do with it what you will. By the way, did you hear The Avengers 2 will apparently begin filming in the UK at Pinewood-Shepperton studios early next year?

Here is the interview:

Natalie, you got your start doing modelling. What was it like making the jump to television and then into films?

The Baytown Outlaws Movie Review
Title: The Baytown Outlaws Director: Barry Battles Starring: Clayne Crawford, Travis Fimmel, Thomas Brodie Sangster, Daniel Cudmore, Billy Bob Thornton, Eva Longoria, Andre Braugher, Paul Wesley, Zoe Bell, Michael Rapaport, Serinda Swan, Agnes Bruckner A deeply but pleasantly weird sort of Southern Gothic battle royale, “The Baytown Outlaws” is a boisterous, sweat-soaked mash-up of “The Boondock Saints,” “Smokin’ Aces,” “Wild Things” and “Sucker Punch” (minus the latter’s material excess). While stipulating that it is at its core fairly slight — and also constructed of prefabricated parts and characters who, despite their colorful nature, are basically kind of hoary clichés — it’s also hard to deny that director Barry Battles’ zonked-out genre [ Read More ]

The Baytown Outlaws: Buckwild, the Movie

Even after falsely billing Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria as the stars of this action-packed B-movie extravaganza (as if that would pull in the crowds), the producers and director/co-screenwriter Barry Battles have no need to apologize. This ode to Tarantino, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, and Jerry Lewis marathons is deliriously silly, frenetically violent, and insanely entertaining, especially for those who prefer Mad Max over The Rules of the Game.

The actual leads are Clayne Crawford, Travis Fimmel, and Daniel Crawford, who respectively play three orphaned siblings who've grown up to be the gun-toting, bemuscled, sweaty hunks Brick, G.I., and the mute former wrestler Lincoln. These charismatic Southern rednecks work for a local sheriff (Andre Braugher) who employs them to slay on the sly his county's criminal elements.

All goes well until the applaudable opening credits, when the bros have a bloody shootout at the wrong address. It could happen to anyone,

Film Review: The Baytown Outlaws

It almost pains me to waste precious space on my hard drive or even space here on this website talking about the repugnant piece of redneck-sploitation shit-kicking garbage called The Baytown Outlaws. It pains me because I don’t have much to say about it other than it’s really really bad, but it also pains me because I’ve just spent the day going over all the ridiculously good movies from 2012 that have been nominated for Academy Awards that I’m kind of walking around in this numb state of confusion after having to sit through and wrap my head around this trash.

Granted, it never aspired to be more than an ultra-violent Southern Boondocks Saints or Tarantino-at-his-worst rip-off, but it aspired to be an action-comedy and didn’t even come close to being superficially competent enough to fulfill those basic genres. It tries to be funny, but it
