Bad Papa Trailer: Blood Father!

FIN03_BloodFather_Tsr_Trim

There’s a new trailer for Blood Father, the movie in which Mel Gibson plays the less-than-law-abiding biological father to a girl who’s gotten herself in a lot of trouble.

It’s the latest entry in the geriatric action (geriaction?) genre and looks as formulaic in its own way as the Taken movies were. The selling point, of course, is that Gibson isn’t just an action hero, he’s a great actor.

Blood Father will be in theaters and on VOD on August 12th. Check out the new trailer after the break.

Extraction: Convoluted Spy Movie Never Quite Takes Off!

Extraction-2015

Extraction is a short but not quite sweet spy tale in which a super-hacking device called the Condor is the McGuffin. Basically, it can hack any government’s communications and/or anything that relies on computers – which is pretty much everything these days.

The Condor is actually a device to allow an over the hill CIA agent to extract vengeance for the betrayal that cost his wife’s death.

From the minds that gave us Napolean Dynamite and Nacho Libre comes Don Verdean – a tale of epic Biblical angst and confusion.

Don Verdean is a self-styled Biblical archaeologist who specializes in finding Biblical artifacts. When he comes up short on a very specific commission, things get freaky.

Don Verdean stars Sam Rockwell, Jemaine Clement, Will Forte, Amy Ryan and Leslie Bibb. It is directed by Jared Hess. Check out the trailer following the jump. Don Verdean will be in theaters and on demand on December 11th.

She’s Funny That Way – Which Is To Say Not Funny!

shes-funny

A new film by Peter Bogdanovich should be cause for celebration – especially when it’s a screwball comedy. Sadly, the best thing about She’s Funny That Way is that it opens and closes on great songs: Cheek to cheek at the beginning and Steppin’ Out With My Baby (both sung by Fred Astaire) over the closing credits.

Bogdanovich and co-writer Louise Stratten are attempting to tell a story about the discovery of a star as part of a screwball comedy. Unfortunately, there’s very little screwing and no balls at all – even with king of testosterone making a cameo at the end.
