American Film Fans Abide: Six Small Movies Cutting Through the Mediocrity
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Like the Stranger once said to the Dude, "Sometimes you eat the bear. And sometimes the bear eats you." Consumers of American film got to eat a lot of good bear meat back in 2015 (that is not in any way meant to be a reference to The Revenant.) But in 2016, damn, we've been served up to the bear on a big-ass platter. There has been so much mediocrity coming from American filmmakers this year that it's hard to even get worked up about it. So much pleasant, competent, boring crap. Whether it's the latest Bridget Jones (and I know that's a British/American co-production directed by a Welsh woman) or the newest remake (that would be The Magnificent Seven), finding something original and engaging seems like a tougher and tougher mission in 2016. I know that many times film-goers are just looking for a easy diversion for a few hours between dinner and - depending on your wont - sex, gaming, or a midnight sundae. No problem with that. Two of my favorite movies of the year, Popstar: Neve...

Plenty to recommend in ensemble indie 'The Intervention'
LATimes - over 1 year
The weekend-away-with-friends indie has become a safe testing ground for first-time feature directors: one (typically pretty) location reduces certain production stresses, while a large cast allows plenty of room to discover what works and what doesn’t. In the case of actress Clea DuVall’s debut...

Lizzie Borden Swings Her Axe in a Lifetime Movie
Huffington Post - about 4 years
If you were casting in your mind for a 30-ish actress to play the title role of Lizzie Borden in a television movie about her life, wouldn't Christina Ricci be at the top of your list? There is something just quirky enough about the characters this actress has created in the past to make her a match for the role of the young woman who took an axe to her parents back in the mid 1800's. Ricci makes the character innocent on the outside but vile on the inside and that is the right combination to make her totally believable in this role. Lifetime's original movie Lizzie Borden Took An Axe spends very little time on the events leading up to the murder of the senior Bordens, but focuses on the crimes and their aftermath. Lizzie claims to have discovered her father's body and sent their maid for help. Then later the maid went upstairs and found Mrs. Borden's body. Lizzie claimed someone with a grudge against her father (Stephen McHattie) must have done it, but there was an almost two hour t...

Christina Ricci Looks Delightfully Murderous As Lizzie Borden In Lifetime Movie
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Lifetime clearly hasn't lost its flair for dramatics. Based on the chilling nursery rhyme, "Lizzie Borden Took An Ax" stars Christina Ricci as the titular character on trial for murdering her parents. In this first look, Ricci is a wholesome gal ... with a bloody ax. The real Lizzie Borden has had a steadfast place in American folklore since the 1800s, paving the way for future female serial killers, murderers and infamous media darlings. (Translation: It's a ready-made Lifetime movie.) "Lizzie Borden" also stars Billy Campbell and Clea DuVall. Lifetime's official description: "On a scorching, hot summer day in 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts, Lizzie Borden (Ricci) returns home to the house she shares with her father Andrew, stepmother Abby and sister Emma (DuVall). But, unlike any normal day, Lizzie encounters the bloody scene of her parents violently murdered. Police quickly question multiple suspects in town, but evidence keeps pointing back to the Borden’s youngest daught...

American Horror Story Scares Will Continue for Season 3
Boom Tron - over 5 years
Ryan Murphy isn’t finished frightening us. His spooky hit drama American Horror Story was just renewed for a third spine-tingling season. What new horrors await us this time? TV Line broke the news that the show’s star, Ms. Jessica Lange would return for the third incarnation of the series. I think that’s very cool. She played Southerner, Constance, for Season 1 and has been the Asylum‘s Sister Jude this season. The role of Constance won Lange both the Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy. American Horror Story: Asylum ends on Jan. 23 and the new 13-episode third season begins production this summer. You can enjoy what’s left of this season on the FX network on Wednesday nights. When I say the series is popular, I really mean it. Asylum averages over 5 million viewers. If you’re confused about the different seasons not being related, don’t be. It was Murphy who announced after season one had run, that his second season, and every season thereafter, would be a total re-vamp, a...

After five weeks of naughty nuns, electroshock therapy, aliens, severed limbs, Nazis and a serial killer in question, Bloody Face was finally revealed on "American Horror Story: Asylum" (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX) ... and it's not Kit Walker (Evan Peters).
