    Movie Review: Empire of the Apes (2014)


    Not too many times in my short time as a reviewer have I come across a micro-budget film as fun as Empire of the Apes. Of course it feels like a fan film due to its budget but that doesn’t mean it is a bad film. There is obviously some fandom going on here but that is what made the movie so fun to me. A group of ladies are captured on a planet in another galaxy and escape via an escape pod from the ship. Once they escape, they ...

    If you love H.G. Wells' timeless classic, " War of the Worlds", then it's a more than safe bet you'll enjoy the loosely-based sequel "Goliath" from Director Joe Pearson, and it will come crashing into your homes in both DVD & 3D Blu-Ray format this April 1st (no foolin !).

    This animated-steampunk style shoot-em-up takes place 15 years after the initial attacks upon the Earth by a race of ultra-violent martians that basically laid waste ...

    I recently had the honor of conducting an interview with an actor who for MANY years, always managed to entertain not only myself, but millions with his vast spectrum of performances & characters... the only thing is, if you saw him, you'd most likely say "oh yeah ! THAT guy !!" Well, his name is Jon Polito, and for the past 33 years, he has over 200 different credits to his name between film, TV & voice-over work. His most noticeable performances came in such hits as The Crow (Mr. Gideon), Miller's Crossing (Johnny Caspar) & Seinfeld (Silvio) -but these are merely add-ons to what has been an already stellar career ...

    I never considered myself an international traveler...sure, there are places I'd LIKE to visit - to see where my relatives resided in Ireland, or to cruise the canals in a gondola in Italy...but after watching "Crocodile Dundee" WAY back when I was a little turd back in 1986, all I wanted to see was the Australian Outback, the roos, the Aborigines...just the scenery.....then 19 years later, I was introduced to Mick Taylor....and needless to say you couldn't get me to visit Koala-Land if ya paid me ...

    Fans of the sphere REJOICE !! After much posturing & proposing, it appears that there could possibly be a long-awaited Phantasm sequel ready to launch at our sightline in the (hopefully) not too far future. The movie, subtitled: Ravager, will follow on the heels of 1998's Phantasm: Oblivion (WAY too long of a span), and is rumored to have been filmed over the past couple of years in small increments (interestingly enough, ...

    The live action adaptations of tween books have been a mixed bag as of late. No one can debate the successes of the Twilight and Hunger Games franchises. But recent attempts to spin off a franchise of films from popular books amongst high-schoolers has taken a hit with box office bombs such as Vampire Academy, Beautiful Creatures and Ender’s Game.

    Based on the uber popular novel by Veronica Roth, Divergent transports its audience to a world (ok, Chicago) where the population is divided into groups early ...

    A friend of mine today posted on Facebook: "Even Oderus would laugh at the sheer irony that he died the same week as Fred Phelps". That about sums up what Gwar and outrages frontman Oderus Urungus (Dave Brockie)was all about. Now I'm not going to give you history in GWAR. If you want that shit Wikipedia them. This is more of how GWAR effected and shaped a young Androidvirus. At the tender age of 12 (Yep 25 Years ago). I was in Saturday school (ccd) and my buddy's in crime Tad and Harry not only had cigarettes but also a Gwar cassette tape on them .

    As we were sitting in the pews of Risen Savior Catholic church listening to Father Baca's sermon about how we need to be good kids and follow the path of Jesus, I had the folded out cover for Gwar's Scumdogs of the Universe tape. Crude yet R.Crumb like drawings on the inside of amputees and other atrociousness drawn by Brockie himself. The back cover had "gwar woman" Slymenstra Hyman with 4 slaves on all fours holding them with chains. I was immediately hooked and bought every album, cd, tape and VHS movie ever-since. After 25 yrs of going to over a dozen concerts, getting jizzed on and sprayed by blood.

    I was going to pass the torch and take my 14 yr old daughter to her first GWAR concert later this year. That has been cut short. Dave Brockie was found dead in his native Richmond VA. at the age of 50. I'm truly bummed out. Here was an artist, an activist for free speech and downright one of the funniest motherfuckers to ever dawn a rubber monster suit.

    Dave also had may other bands, Death Piggy, X-COPS and his solo effort DBX (The Dave Brockie Experience) A man who shaped my adolescence an teens is gone. A mentor to disgusting social political humor is gone. The metal world and comedic world will forever have a gaping hole in it. Ever the master satirist I can say Oderus would of been proud to know that 14 yr old girl in fact did see GWAR.

    I took my then 6 month pregnant girlfriend and now wife to GWAR while she carried that 14 yr old. Thank you Dave Brockie for your music, sense of humor and getting people through a hard time by mocking the worlds horrors. Forever the 12 yr old in the church who was introduced the GWAR in the house of God.

    Brace yourself, things are about to get a bit strange because Odd Thomas has arrived. Based on a character created by renowned horror author Dean Koontz, the film is just what you’d expect from a director like Stephen Sommers, known for films like G.I.Joe and The Mummy. It’s a loud and flashy yet highly entertaining piece of American filmmaking.

    Odd Thomas a seemingly ordinary short-order fry cook can can commune with the dead and they clamor for him to avenge their wrongful deaths. Using ...

    In Fear proves what many of us have preached for a long long time – you don’t need a high body count and buckets of blood to make a superior horror film.

    Directed by Jeremy Lovering, In Fear uses skilled actors, a simple yet effective setting, and an unpretentious story to bring the chills and scares. And the effective use of its resources is what makes In Fear one of the better independent horror films of recent memory.

    There are but three main ...

    A Night To Remember from writer/director Nathan Pelland is an extremely low budget film that burns with the spirit of truly independent filmmaking. This means the film has many shortcomings but if you can get in the right frame of mind when viewing it, you’ll have a really good time.

    Remember is about a group of high school students celebrating one last time before college and the future catches up with them. Everything is going well until an unexpected visitor crashes the party and people start disappearing ...
