IFC’s The Samaritan is not perfect in the slightest sense, but the film does mostly work thanks to Samuel L. Jackson’s performance.
Even though the humor didn’t work for me, IFC’s Blu-ray for the second season of Portlandia is one fans will definitely want to pick up.
The Decoy Bride is funny, romantic, predictable and absolutely devoid of originality. If it weren’t for the charm of Kelly MacDonald and likeability of David Tennant, the film would fall flat.
This apocalyptic romance is too pretentious for its own good, but Eva Green and Ewan McGregor do a fine job as the two star-crossed lovers.
Werner Herzog’s documentary, Into the Abyss, isn’t perfect, but this look into violent crime, the effects on victims families, and death row is still worth renting.
An edge-of-the-seat adventure/thriller set in the Scottish Highlands, A Lonely Place to Die is one of the best films in the genre to come along in a while. Despite the barebones Blu-ray release, this is still a easy one to recommend.
Lena Dunham may have an eye for the lens, but her comedy of privilege results in obnoxious, one-dimensional characters and a vapid story that becomes quickly tiring.
Flypaper takes your bank robbery plot and tries to throw a new twist into it, but ultimately ends up failing even tho MPI’s Blu-ray does feature solid video and audio.
Odd, quirky and just plain weird, Portlandia Season One plainly did nothing for me. While the Blu-ray does feature decent video/audio, I can’t really recommend this to anyone as there are far better series out there.
Alba is splendid in this quirky indie dark comedy, but the film itself fails horribly.
