WEST OF REDEMPTION -- DVD Review by Porfle




If you're a Billy Zane fan as I am, you should be pleased as punch to see him back in fine form in such a first-rate, emotionally-intense suspense thriller as WEST OF REDEMPTION (Indican Pictures, 2015).

Billy (THE HESSEN CONSPIRACY, ZOMBIE KILLERS: ELEPHANT'S GRAVEYARD, SCORNED, BORDER RUN, BLUE SEDUCTION, GHOST OF GOODNIGHT LANE, BLUE WORLD ORDER) plays Hank Keller, a simple country boy living on a secluded farm with his wife Becky (Mariana Klaveno, "Dexter"), who works as a waitress.

All is serene until one stormy night when a disheveled young man (Kevin Alejandro, PURGATORY FLATS, "Lucifer") comes to the door asking to use the phone to call a tow truck.  Hank complies, but when he hears the man identify himself as "Rick Youngblood", he knocks him unconscious and ties him up in a shed.


Why Hank does this is a mystery that grips us and doesn't let up as the man is kept prisoner and interrogated while his presence is hidden from the unsuspecting Becky. 

Before long we realize that she's the focus of the whole thing, but the reason for this is just one of the plot twists that you don't want to know about before delving into this deeply involving and ultimately tragic tale.

Meagan Daine's screenplay is a sizzling slowburn that has us guessing from start to finish.  What appears at first to be shaping up as a potentially violent horror thriller turns out to be much richer and more emotionally resonant, turning down unexpected paths and exploring aspects of these characters and their motives that are continuously illuminating.


Director Cornelia Duryée has taken this sharply-written script and given it an exquisitely well-rendered visual interpretation that always strikes just the right note.  Camerawork is fine but never interferes with the story, while all other technical aspects are also well done.

Zane gives one of his best and most involved performances in years, while Alejandro and Klaveno also fully and convincingly inhabit their characters. As the plot teasingly unfolds, we wonder which of the two men is the good guy and which is the bad, if indeed things are that simple.

When a series of flashbacks involving Becky begin to reveal secrets previously hidden from us, things take on a whole different dimension.  I'm not going to  reveal a single one of them, and I'd also advise you not to watch the too-revealing trailer beforehand.


WEST OF REDEMPTION doesn't resort to violence or shocks to hold our attention, and when the final twist falls into place, we discover what a beautifully told tragedy it really is.

Teri Polo Joins Robert Davi, Nicolas Turturro in Holiday Rom-Com "Pizza & Whine"



TERI POLO JOINS ROBERT DAVI, NICOLAS TURTURRO IN HOLIDAY ROMCOM ‘PIZZA & WHINE’
 
The New Feature from Maria Capp Begins Production This Week


LOS ANGELES (January 14, 2019) – Teri Polo ("The Fosters"), Robert Davi (Goonies, Die Hard) and Nic Turturro (BlaKkKlansman) will star in PIZZA & WHINE which will begin shooting in Los Angeles this month with co-stars Mike Marino (Pizza with Bullets) and Ayla Kell (“Make it or Break it”). Maria Capp makes her feature directorial debut with the film, having just co-written and produced award-winning film Reach in 2018. 

Polo is “Angela D'Agosti” who helps gather her family together at the most wonderful time of the year for one of the saddest occasions – her mother’s funeral. After years of being apart, some of the family’s young cousins (Raffaela Capp, Reach; Ayla Kell; Natasha Capp, Reach; and Lily Gibsen, “Boy Meet’s World”) are assigned the seemingly simple task of singing at their grandmother's funeral. But only through family drama, tears, a little pizza and wine, will all of the women rediscover themselves, each other, their love of family, music, and Christmas traditions.

Jayson Bernard (Halloweed), Michael Lenoci (Running Lines with Lenoci), Jared Sandler (Father of the Year) and Lance Paul (A Kiss on Candy Cane Lane) round out the cast.

“This story is inspired by my own very large, loving Italian family and the recent passing of my beloved grandma,” stated Raffaela Capp, who also co-wrote.

Added filmmaker Maria Capp, “It’s an honor to bring this story about women to the big screen but even more so to be doing it with a cast and crew made up 80% women!”

Director Maria Capp co-wrote Pizza & Whine with first-time screenwriters Raffaela Capp and Elliott Estrada. The screenplay is loosely based on and inspired by the play, Pizza and Whine written by the Capps with Veronica Kelly, which workshopped at the New York Theatre Festival's Winterfest and The Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2018.

Maria Capp is also a Producer with Jayson Bernard, Roberto Rosario, Jr. and Kristi Kilday. Steve Capp is the Executive Producer. Casting is by Dea Vise.

Larry Explains The Joke: "SPOOKS!" (Three Stooges, 1953) (video)




In the 3D comedy "Spooks!", the boys are stuck in a haunted house...

...along with a mad doctor, his henchman, and a gorilla.

When the Stooges finally make a break for the front door...
...they're thwarted by an elastic doorknob.

But someone was afraid the audience wouldn't get that this was a door...
...and that Moe was trying to open it.

So they had Larry dub in the lines: "The door! Open it, Moe!"

Whew! We almost didn't get that one!

Implied Beheading In "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1948) (video)




(SPOILER ALERT!!!)

Humphrey Bogart plays the mentally unhinged Fred C. Dobbs...

...whose final clash with Mexican bandits turns fatal.

While we don't see exactly what happens to him...
...director John Huston makes it pretty obvious.

Gold Hat (Alfonso Bedoya) strikes with his machete.
The exact same shot is repeated twice to show multiple blows.

Then they watch Dobbs' head roll downhill toward the water...
...leaving a trail of blood.

While not graphic, the implication alone is enough to shock.

ODDSOCKEATERS -- DVD Review by Porfle




I'm not that big a fan of the current spate of digital cartoons (I still have a passion for cel animation and stop-motion) but the Czech film ODDSOCKEATERS, aka "Lichozrouti" (2016, Omibus Entertainment/Film Movement) is something I'd have to describe as unique and appealing, maybe even irresistible.

The visuals capture the feel of storybook illustrations come to vivid life, with just the right balance of painterly artistry and an almost model-like realism.  The characters have the look of living plush toys that are vibrant with personality.

Hugo is a young oddsockeater, a creature invisible to most humans except for "oddies" (people who live alone on the fringes of society).  As the name implies, he subsists upon stolen socks, but his family tradition is to take only one from a pair and leave the other, thus "sharing" the socks rather than stealing them outright.


When his grandfather dies (or fades away as oddsockeaters do) Hugo must seek out his uncle, Big Boss, who runs a gang of sock "sharers" (including Hugo's mischievous identical twin cousins Rameses and Tulamor) and hoards mountains of socks in his lair in the attic of an eccentric old professor who knows of the existence of oddsockeaters and is forever trying to capture one and win the Nobel Prize.

But even as Hugo is trying to fit in with Big Boss and his crew, he falls afoul of his uncle's arch enemy, Spike, whose much-less-scrupulous gang of sock pirates delight in stealing whole pairs--right off of people's feet when possible.

Trying to rescue his cousin after he's kidnapped by Spike and held for a king's ransom in socks, Hugo must become a member of Spike's gang, putting him at odds with Big Boss. Eventually he'll find himself targeted by both factions, in addition to being doggedly pursued by the Professor himself.


At first, I found the story a bit hard to get into, but the more I became familiar with storybook author Pavel Srut's characters and eased into the movie's own wonderfully unique world, it all became more and more captivating.  The characters are mostly abrasive and bombastic (save for the sweet-natured Hugo) but likable, with the noteworthy exception of the thoroughly villainous Spike who is genuinely menacing.

Direction by Galina Miklínová, who wrote the book adaptation, is dazzingly kinetic and imaginative throughout, keeping the story moving at a breakneck pace and packed with colorful action.

Spike's hideout aboard a small tugboat on the river that runs through town is an ideal setting for much of the cliffhanger-style activity which includes car and truck chases and some harrowing scrapes involving water, which can mean soggy death for an oddsockeater.


Songs are mercifully few (and those few are nicely tuneful) and the story is brimming with rich dialogue and character interactions.  All in all, ODDSOCKEATERS is one of those pleasant surprises that I began watching a bit grudgingly and ended up being totally charmed and entertained by.

Moe Explains The Joke: "Flagpole Jitters" (Three Stooges, 1956) (video)




In the 1949 Three Stooges comedy "Hokus Pokus"...

...we observe the boys making breakfast in their own unique way.

This includes Moe scrambling a few eggs by cracking them into a coffee grinder...
...and grinding them up.  Thus, "scrambling" them.

When the same footage was reused in the 1956 remake "Flagpole Jitters"...
...the studio was afraid we wouldn't get the joke.

So now, after Moe cracks the eggs into the coffee grinder...
...they dub in his voice saying: "Now I'll scramble 'em!"

And after all these years, we finally get the joke!
