Cinematic Releases: Logan Lucky (2017) Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - The revolution is on. Renowned auteur returns from retirement with a film financed outside of the Hollywood system.  Both an experiment of creative freedom and an absolutely charming crime caper, Logan Lucky is a small, intimate story that allows the master to flex all of his technical might in a tight package of felonious humor.  Jimmy Logan is an out of work coal miner desperate to keep his daughter from leaving the state with his ex-wife and her family.  Using his intimate knowledge of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, he assembles a rag tag group of colorful characters to pull of the not so perfect heist of the century, all the while trying to avoid his familial curse of bad luck.  Soderbergh shot, edited, directed, and most likely wrote the film under the alias Rebecc

News: St. Vincent to Direct Gender Swapped Version of Dorian Gray

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Perhaps one of the most popular thriller/fantasy stories of all time, The Picture of Dorian Gray has had numerous cinematic versions. The most recent was a lower budget film that hit back in 2009 that starred Ben Barnes in the title role with support from Colin Firth and the always beautiful Rebecca Hall. The movie received extremely mixed reviews and was not very successful.Now, alternative music artist St. Vincent has been tapped to direct a new version of the story that will change the character of Dorian to a female. This will be her first full length directorial effort and will be released by none other than Lionsgate. She previously directed one segment of the horror anthology XX. There is no firm date planned for the film quite yet, but early planning is in full effect. 

Arrow Video: Cops vs. Thugs (1975) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - It’s a bit of a shame most Western filmgoers who hear the name of the late prolific Japanese director Kinji Fukusaku can only name his portions of Tora! Tora! Tora! and his now world infamous Battle Royale.  The man made countless films throughout the 1960s and 70s at an almost geometric rate and for better or worse set himself apart from his more formalistic contemporaries including but not limited to Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu with his gritty, frenetic and frequently drab aesthetic.  With a boundless, manic energy the camera can barely keep up with, Fukusaku would no doubt pave the way and arguably influence the visual schema of director Takashi Miike whose Dead or Alive series, however lunatic, looks more and more like a Fukusaku film series with each passing day.One thi

Streaming Releases: Demon Hunter (2017) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Outsider teenager is given remarkable powers at a terrible cost. Zoe Cavanaugh's piecemeal fantasy horror film takes this egregiously tired plotline and pumps a surprising amount of heart into what would otherwise be yet another forgettable genre offering. Sly camerawork, proficient practical makeup effects, and a perfectly niche central performance elevate Demon Hunter to fun night on the couch territory. Taryn is a supernatural warrior whose traumatic childhood fuels her quest for revenge against demonic entities that walk among us. Her quest becomes more complicated when she is arrested after her latest kill, bringing her face to face with old enemies and the bitterness of broken promises. Niamh Hogan gives an adequate performance, using Tony Flynn and Cavanaugh's script to bo
