Movie Review: Justice League (2017)

Well, true believers... Sorry, wrong crowd, I meant... Holy cow Batman, I just saw the Justice League movie! For those of you that have lost track, Justice League is the fifth film in the DC universe. Altogether, we got the Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Suicide Squad (2016), Wonder Woman (2017) and now Justice League (2017). Honestly, the DC films have not been winning me over. From Man of Steel to Batman v Superman, I've been disappointed by each of the films in one way or the other. It wasn't until the Wonder Woman movie came out that I finally saw some potential for the DC universe to become enjoyable. Wonder Woman had a lighter tone and more humor than the previous films. After Wonder Woman's success, changes were made to the Justice League movie in hopes of capturing the same audience approval as Wonder Woman. After finding out about the changes being made, I had some hope of enjoying the Justice League movie. Well, It was better than the other DC films but not as good as Wonder Woman.

Movie Review: Attack of the Killer Donuts (2017)

Who remembers the movie Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! (1978)? If you do then you then you're remembering an awesome classic. Well, the tomatoes had their chance to rule the world and failed. Now it's time for another food to try to seize the day and that food is... donuts! That's right, those glazed, sprinkled, cream-filled treats have had enough. So, watch out for Attack of the Killer Donuts (2017).

Attack of the Killer Donuts is a comedy/horror that has a eighty-six minute run time and is rated NR (not rated) but has violence and language. It was directed by Scott Wheeler and written by Nathan Dalton, Chris De Christopher & Rafael Diaz-Wagner. Even though the title pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the movie, here's what you'll be getting into.

Comet TV's December (2017) Airing Schedule

Movie Review: The Listing (2017)

I had the opportunity to screen a film by Mario Cerrito, called The Listing (2017). Cerrito has been working hard in the movie industry and has a long list of positions filled when it comes to making movies. Like actor, producer, location management and editor to name a few. So, he has a pretty good idea about all the hard work it takes to entertain the masses. In 2015 Cerrito added the title of director to his workload and launched his first feature-length film called Deadly Gamble.  Two years later, Cerrito is back to thrill us his latest project, The Listing.

The Listing is a thriller that was written and directed by Mario Cerrito. It has a seventy-four minute run time and is rated UR (unrated) but does have language. The story is about a realtor named Michael Morurer. Michael is at the height of life, wonderful wife, great family, and work is taking off

Movie Review: Kepler's Dream (2017)

I had a chance to screen a new film from Leomark Studios called Kepler's Dream (2017), which was named Audience Favorite at the Mill Valley Film Festival (2016). Amy Glazer, director of Kepler's Dream, has been leaving her mark in the entertainment world by turning plays into movies. Glazer's feature film debut was Drifting Elegant (2006), which was based on Stephen Belber's play Drifting Elegant. Now, Glazer has put her talents to work on Kepler's Dream, which is a feature adaptation of the hit young adult novel Kepler's Dream by Juliet Bell (2013).

Kepler's Dream is an adventure/family/drama with a running time of eighty-eight minutes. It's directed by Amy Glazer and written by Sylvia Brownrigg, Sedge Thomson, Ann Cummins, Amy Glazer and Vijay Rajan. The story is about an eleven-year-old girl named Elle that has to go stay with

Movie Review: 3 (2017)

I recently had the chance to screen a new film by Lou Simon called 3, which she wrote and directed. Now, if you made it to the opening of the New York Horror Film Festival this year, which runs from October 26th thru the 29th, then you might have seen Simon's film since it was the opening night feature presentation. 3 makes Simon's fifth feature film in her seven-year filmmaking career.

3 is a horror/mystery/thriller that has an eighty-two minute run time and is rated UR (unrated) but has language and violence in it. Simon's film is a serious psychological thriller about rape and revenge, but with a brilliant twist to it. The story is about a man and a woman that kidnap her rapist so that they can get a confession from him. The three of them are held up in a remote home but know that time is not on their side and it won't be long before the police

Movie Reviews: Halloween Tales (2017)

Since Halloween is right around the corner, I figured I should do a Halloween themed review. I thought I had hit the jackpot when I found Halloween Tales (2017) because it was a Halloween themed movie and it was an anthology, which I'm a huge fan of them. After watching it, I'm not really sure why it was called Halloween Tales because it had absolutely nothing to do with Halloween.

Halloween Tales is an eighty-two-minute horror anthology that was written and directed by Geno McGahee. The story is about four people that are stuck in a train station and decide to start telling each other about their worst nightmare. Through each person's tale, they cover ghosts, monsters and a couple of slashers that are looking to shed some blood.

Movie Review: Craig Quits His Day Job (2016)

Back in February, I had the pleasure of screening a film called Kultur Shock! that starred Eric Paul Chapman. Well, Chapman is back with another film under his belt, but this time around he decided to step behind the camera. Chapman's newest project, which he wrote and directed, is a comedy called Craig Quits His Day Job and it happens to be his first feature-length film. I have to say, I thought Chapman was good in front of the camera, but come to find out, he has some serious skills behind it as well. Now, the movie was released November 9th, 2016, but as of October 16th, 2017 you can find it on Amazon Prime.

This eighty-six-minute comedy is about a man named Craig and how he decides to up and quit his dead-end job one day. That moment sparks Craig to start a journey to unite quitters all around the world. Unfortunately, not everyone is running to join Craig's group, but he'll get them there... maybe.

Movie Review: Yoga Hosers (2016)

Do you think Kevin Smith's films are funny? In September 2016, I thought so, until I saw this one.

Directing 88-minute comedy/fantasy/horror is Kevin Smith.

Some of the cast is: Harley Quinn Smith as Colleen McKenzie, Lily-Rose Depp as Colleen Collette, Johnny Depp as Guy LaPointe, Justin Long as Yogi Bayer, Ralph Garman as Andronicus Arcane and Kevin Smith as The Bratzis. With a cameo by Stan Lee as 911 Dispatch.

Store clerks and besties, Colleen (Collette) and Colleen (McKenzie) are two teenagers that spend their time together doing stuff like yoga, texting, working at the store (when they have to). Now the
girls get to add to that list, saving Canada from an ancient Nazi evil that has been peacefully sleeping... until now.

Movie Review: Demons (2017)

So, the other day I was going through my social media when I noticed I had a message waiting for me. Turns out, the message had a pretty cool surprise waiting for me. It had a screener link to Uncork'd Entertainment's latest film Demons (2017), which is a horror film written and directed by Miles Doleac. Now, if you're like me, the name might not sound familiar, but you should definitely recognize Doleac's face when you see it because he has a bunch of film/television acting credits under his belt. However, I guess Doleac wasn't happy with just acting in movies because now he's writing and directing them. Demons mark Doleac's third feature film, along with The Historian (2014) and The Hollow (2016), that he's written, directed and... stared in.

So, what is the movie Demons about? Well, for a hundred and five minutes you're taken on a haunting journey that revolves around a married couple, Colin, and Kayleigh. The couple met when

Movie Review: Morning After (2017)

I recently screened a film that was inspired by true events called Morning After, which won the Flicker’s Ambassador Award (Rhode Island Int’l Film Festival (Providence, RI, USA). The film is a fifteen minute short about sexual fluidity amongst Millennials. The "No Label" generation. The film was directed by Patricia Chica and written by Kristian Hodko.

Films like this one are hard to write about. Mainly because while there was some dialogue, the short really relies on visuals to tell the story. Like during one scene the main character starts thinking about something and they have it take a physical form in the scene as he's processing it, which was a great visual and made a good impact on the scene. It's just hard to talk about a film that has so much going on with visuals without spoiling the story for others.

Movie Review: Goodnight, Gracie (2017)

I caught this four-minute short called Goodnight Gracie, which was
written and directed by Stellan Kendrick. Come to find out, Goodnight, Gracie's world premiere will be at the Sitges 2017 Film Festival, which runs from October 5th to October 15th. Then Goodnight, Gracie is off to be the opening film at the San Antonio Horrific Film Festival in Texas (October 20th) and after that, it will be presented at the NYC Horror Film Festival (October 29th).

Gracie, an eight-year-old little girl, hears her parents fighting downstairs, which is nothing new. It's when Gracie hears her mother's blood-curdling scream that she decides to go take a look. Looking down the stairs, Gracie sees her mother... chopped to bits and her stepdad covered in blood and holding an ax. Quickly, Gracie runs to her room to hide and starts praying to Jesus to save her.

Movie Review: Latched (2017)

I recently had the opportunity to screen a short film called Latched, which was the opening film at the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) Short Cuts 06 Program this year (2017). Latched is a seventeen-minute fantasy/horror film that was directed by Justin Harding and Rob Brunner.

Latched centers around a woman named Alana and her fourteen-month-old son Bowen. Alana is a dance choreographer that's looking for some inspiration. So, Alana decides that she and Bowen are going to go stay at an island cottage. Since it's in the offseason Alana only has to share the island with her neighbor Peter, a nice, but rather strange older man. Least, that's everyone Alana thought was on the island.

Movie Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

As far as Wonder Woman goes I can't say I'm a mega fan that knows everything about her, but I am a fan. I grew up reading some of her comics and watching her on television (the Wonder Woman television series (1975) starring Lynda and different cartoons over time). So, I can easily say I'm familiar with the character that William Moulton Marston created. I've always thought Wonder Woman was cool. She has the lasso of truth, can deflect bullets, super strong, had an invisible jet, which never made sense, but as a kid, I thought it was cool! When I heard Wonder Woman was getting her own movie I thought it was stoked, but I wasn't going to get my hopes up due to the fact that I haven't really liked the last round of DC films (Batman vs Superman, Suicide Squad) that have come out. I don't know if it was Zack Snyder's story writing, Patty Jenkins's directing, or maybe both, but Wonder Woman is easily the best DC film to come out, so far.

Movie Review: Unleashed (2017)

When I got the e-mail asking me if I wanted to screen a movie called Unleashed my mind started wondering. I immediately started thinking of all the action or horror sicarios Unleashed could be about. So, I opened the e-mail to find out more about it. After reading everything about what Unleased was about, I have to say I was a bit surprised and oddly interested in screening it. As it turns out, Unleashed wasn't a horror or action flick, but a comedy about love and relationships with a fun spin to it.

Unleashed is a ninety-six-minute unrated comedy that goes a little something like this. Emma, an awkward app designer, decides she needs a new start in life after having her heart seriously stomped on by her boyfriend. So, Emma grabs up her two best friends, Summit and Ajax, and heads to San Francisco. After what her boyfriend did to her, Emma isn't exactly in a trusting place when it comes

Movie Review: Spider-Man: Homcoming (2017)

Alright, so I finally got to see Spider-Man: Homecoming, which I had been looking forward to since the been Captain America: Civil War (2016) teaser spot when we first saw (the new) Spider-Man. Even during his brief appearance in Civil War, I saw a lot of potential for the newest version of the web-slinger. Now, I know for some people Spider-Man is kind of a sore spot because it's another reboot. For some people (like me) it's a time to rejoice because yes it's the second reboot of Spidey, but(!) Homecoming is also the sixteenth film of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). So, you ask? Sony has had the rights to Spider-Man for... well a long time and companies usually don't work together, which meant fans would never see Spidey running along side some of the other Marvel heroes. So, when Sony and Marvel (Disney) actually struck a deal that would make that happen the world (of comic fans) cried tears of joy. Ok, so I'm not sure if anyone actually cried, but a lot of people were like seriously happy!

Movie Review: Patient 62 (2016)

Who remembers a movie called Scanners (1981), which was about people with telekinetic and telepathic powers? If you don't, no stress, it's an old film sci-fi film from back in the day. The only reason I even started thing about Scanners was that I screened the film Patient 62 recently and it had a cool Scanners vibe to it. Patient 62 is a sci-fi/thriller about a man getting telekinetic powers through a drug and what he does with those powers to serve up some justice.

Patient 62 was written by Rick Anthony and here's what it's about. During a conversation with his mother, Lucas finds out his sister Angela has gone missing. Since Lucas isn't on the best of terms with his sister he writes it off to Angela has gone off to party somewhere and she'll be back. Lucas's mother doesn't think that's true because she's been having the same nightmare again and again about
