Movie Review: Stretch (2014)

6stretch poster

amazon-logo

Stretch, from director Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team), is a fun action/thriller comedy starring Patrick Wilson. Stretch (Wilson) is a down on his luck aspiring actor/limo driver who suddenly finds himself having to pay his bookie $6000 by midnight. In the hope that he’ll be tipped enough to cover the debt in time, Stretch takes a job chauffeuring an eccentric billionaire (Chris Pine, in an uncredited role) on a crazy, drug-fueled adventure through Los Angeles.

The plot has a few more moving parts than that but Stretch is essentially about its title character being thrust into a surreal situation filled with silly danger and over the top characters. It works well thanks to Wilson’s acting and an entertaining script. Continue reading

Poker Night: Not Your Typical Card Night

In the latter part of 2014 a film went literally undetected, slipping under the radar aside from the odd film buff swatting up on its production. And it wasn’t until this year that industry hacks started talking about the film, the latest Macabre release, Poker Night. The film bypassed a cinema release and went straight to DVD and Blu-ray. Admittedly, that’s not particularly strange for an indie film, however the stellar cast that the film boasts make you wonder whether it didn’t get the exposure it maybe should have. Continue reading

Yahoo Screen: Community – 601 – “Ladders” Review

community-yahoo-screen

When Yahoo picked up Community, it seemed fitting that this weird little show would land in the most unlikely and random place. I hadn’t heard of Yahoo’s free video service, but I thought it was a smart marketing decision to pick up Community and boost Yahoo Screen’s numbers with one of sitcom television’s most outspoken and loyal fan bases.

Now the show’s 6th season (a milestone I honestly never thought the show would reach) is here. The first two episodes premiered today with new episodes made available each Tuesday. All of which are available on a free app from a site that gave me my first email address almost two decades ago. Continue reading

TV Review: “American Crime” – Episode One (Pilot)

American Crime

Before watching the pilot episode of American Crime, I had a passing familiarity with it. I’d seen a preview and thought it looked interesting enough. However, something about the preview’s abundance of tense emotional clips and vague plot details screamed melodrama to me. Unfortunately melodrama wasn’t the worst thing about the pilot episode of American Crime.

John Ridley, who won an Adapted Screenplay Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, created the anthology crime drama and wrote and directed the pilot episode. Instead of creating an intriguing story, however, Ridley delivered a jumbled mess with shoddy storytelling and reckless (bordering on dangerous) social commentary.
