Hey guys, Jana here,

Premiere Of FX's "American Horror Story: Coven"

 

In the wake of wickedly successful series like ‘Game of Thrones‘ that prove period pieces are bankable projects, BBC has set the cast for their newest series epic, ‘The Last Kingdom‘. Bernard Cornwell is the author of at least 8 novels that comprise ‘The Saxon Stories‘, the first in the series being ‘The Last Kingdom‘. The series is a continuing historical novel about 9th and 10th century Britain. We meet Uhtred Ragnarson, born a Saxon then kidnapped by raiding Danes who raise him from the age of 10, teaching him how to be a warrior. When his Danish father is killed, Uhtred joins King Alfred of Wessex. The series takes history and slightly embellishes events, details and people, so that what is presented is not a straight true historical story, but a marriage of historical fact and fictional characters.

Film Review: ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 ‘

by Bryan Kluger on Nov 15th, 2012

Suzanne, Here….

This is the end – finally. After four books and five movies, Stephenie Meyer’s ode to the true love between an insipidly needy girl and an overbearing vampire is complete with the opening of Breaking Dawn, Part 2 (BD2). If you are a ‘tween or extremely bored and emotionally stunted older woman that loves this series, then you might want to stop reading this review.

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

“We were up at “the top of the world” and we saw this shooting star and we decided to go look for it. But instead of finding the shooting star we saw this… this circus tent.”

EXCLUSIVE: The first time I watched ‘Killer Klowns From Outer Space’, I was about nine years old and it was on HBO.  I watched it with my dad, and I remember how much we laughed and how frightened we were at certain moments.  Especially me.  I remember thinking how cool and scary those killer klowns were, and how much I wanted to go into that circus tent and shoot the popcorn guns.  It was one of the defining moments in my life where I know I wanted to be involved with film, especially horror.  I loved how there was very little CG, rather it was all real FX, costumes, and makeup.  After my first viewing, I looked in the paper to see if it was running anytime again during the week (back then, we had to read the paper to see what was airing on the one channel of HBO).

Hi, Bryan Here….

Writer Kevin Sessums recently sat down with John Cameron Mitchell (director and star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch), who told him he had just finished a first draft to a sequel to his 2001 musical ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’.  Stephen Trask is expected to return as the composer as well.  When Sessums asked what the sequel was about, Mitchell replied, “Let’s just say it’s something that could only happen to Hedwig — a phantasmagoria with dollops of brutal reality interwoven into its multi-media narrative.”  What a tease that is.

He’s recently made several flicks for them, like The Town and Gone Baby Gone, but this one will test his abilities.

The pilot episode of the Zombie Epic tv series, “The Walking Dead” was the biggest premiere and highest rated broadcast in AMC’s history.  Kudos to Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore for creating this story ten years ago.  And leave it to Frank Darabont to tell the story on film, and all that is right in the zombie apocalyptic world rests easy.

Da 5 Bloods – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 11th, 2020

 

“Da 5 Bloods is a masterful cinematic journey.”

All of Spike Lee’s unique visual styles and important messages he so eloquently and brutally deploys in his motion picture catalog are evident in his latest feature Da 5 Bloods that follows a group of older friends traveling back to Vietnam some decades after they served together in the war to reunite with their fallen comrade and retrieve something valuable they left behind all those memories ago. With a vital mix of adventure, war, comedy, and an all too important message on the issue of race in America, Lee has perfectly conjured up a beautifully shot film with an amazing script and remarkable performances by all involved.

IT CHAPTER 2 – 4K UHD Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 11th, 2019

THE FILM


The second and final chapter of ‘IT‘ brings the adult renderings of Stephen King’s kid heroes to the forefront some 27 years later in ‘IT: Chapter 2‘, that stars Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain, and James McAvoy. This sequel runs in at three hours alone, making the two films over five hours long. Director Andy Muschietti has even said there is a 6.5-hour super-cut of the movie, which leads me to ask why this wasn’t released on a streaming format, due to its episodic nature and extensive time run. Still, this second chapter is entertaining enough but suffers from major flaws in pacing, redundancy, and trying to over-complicate things.

KNIVES OUT – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Nov 21st, 2019

“Knives Out was a goddamn delight and one of the most fun movies of the year.”

An entire wealthy family turns on each other when the head patriarch turns up dead on his 80th birthday in this smart-as-hell murder mystery yarn Knives Out from the brilliant filmmaker Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi). Darkly funny throughout with a treasure trove of twists and turns and one fantastic ensemble dream cast, Johnson tells this modern-day who-dunnit puzzle effortlessly that will leave you guessing with surprises up until the very end. It was a goddamn delight and one of the most fun movies of the year.

DOCTOR SLEEP – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Nov 6th, 2019

An adult Danny Torrance is still haunted by the ghosts of the Overlook Hotel and his father as he telepathically connects to a young girl who has the shining, but must help save her and defeat a group of inhuman monsters looking to torture and eat their souls in a wonderfully scary sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, titled Doctor Sleep. Again, written by the horror maestro Stephen King, his novel Doctor Sleep is nothing short of thrilling, exciting, and furthers the story and characters of the Torrance family, while introducing a new sect of evil among us. The brilliant filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Haunting of Hill House) utilizes the slow burn of terror, akin to its predecessor to create a sense of horror here, and works effortlessly.

In the Tall Grass – Film Review! (Fantastic Fest)

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 24th, 2019

Stephen King has a penchant for terrifying us with the most innocent things. Whether it be a cornfield, a family dog, a classic red car, or even a fancy hotel at a ski-resort – King delivers the scares more than most. The same can be said for his short novella he co-wrote with his son Joe Hill called ‘In the Tall Grass‘, which takes place in a beautiful and lush field of tall green blades of grass. Director Vincenzo Natali (‘Cube‘, ‘Splice‘) adapts this horrific story for the big screen as he clutches to the overall maniacal themes of this bloody novella, but never takes it to a peak level of savagery as the written words do. In fact, it’s best you separate the source material from the adapatation so you can enjoy each piece of material individually along with their great unique qualities.

‘IT: Chapter 2’ – Film Review!

“‘IT: Chapter 2’ has some golden moments of horror and comedy, but it comes at an exhaustive and taxing price.”

This sequel runs in at three hours alone, making the two films over five hours long.

Pet Sematary 4K UHD Review!

by Bryan Kluger on May 10th, 2019

Pet Sematary‘ comes back to life with a brand new 2160p 4K UHD image with Dolby Vision and looks and sounds excellent. It’s like watching the film all over again. Stephen King’s excellent novel was adapted in 1989 by director Mary Lambert that focuses on the Creed family moving to the country for a better life where loss, death and family all play a gruesome and horrific part. There are new bonus features as well as some vintage extras imported over here. What an amazing release. Highly Recommended!

‘Pet Sematary (2019) – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 4th, 2019

The ‘Pet Sematary’ remake is downright bad in just about every way possible.

Since Stephen King’sIT‘ remake was a highly commercial and critical success, film studios are scrambling as fast as they can to remake all of Stephen King’s work to cash in on that newly found interest once again. The latest remake in the King universe is ‘Pet Sematary‘, from relatively new filmmakers Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. Now I remember reading King’s book long ago, but I admit it has been a while since I read the whole thing, however, the important plot details and themes still resonated clearly in present day. Mary Lambert’s vision in the original 1989 movie adaptation still holds up as well in most sequences, taking the tone of King’s book and translating it well to film. There are still iconic scenes that scare me in the dark from that original movie. With this new 2019 remake though, everything looks cheap, including the scares, which come across as silly and laughable, and is downright bad in just about every way possible.
