June 12th, 2007 Releases

Ghost Rider

Leo Says: Pretty sweet. The special effects were great Nicky boy was actualy realy quit good (he is the reason that I did not whant to see this film). Overall I realy enjoyed watching Ghost Rider.
I will say that I felt that it should have had some good blood spray and far more morbid content since The Gost Rider is suposed to be Satans Hitman.


Leo Says: Very enjoyable watch, well acted, well written and well directed. This film is based on the True story of the only guy ever to infultrait the FBI (at least thats there claim).. Almost as good as the GOOD SHEPHERD and easyer to follow.

Snow Cake

Kate Says: A sad yet uplifting Canadian drama; a great people-story; funny where it needs to be and effective overall.

The Dead Girl


Jesse Stone: Night Passage

Kate Says: Tom Selleck plays an LA police chief who relocates to a small-town in this prequal to "Stone Cold." "Night Passage" was actually pretty great; it's not overly fast paced as it's more of a cop-drama than an action flick, but it's also not 'slow.' I quite enjoyed this, and Tom Selleck gets bonus points for having a sweet moustache. The acting is all good, it's got an interesting storyline, Tom Selleck kicks some a** and if you enjoy this movie there are two more in the series.

Jesse Stone: Death in Paradise

"Masters of Horror" - The Screwfly Solution

Kate Says: I quite liked this little film; it delivers the suspense, contains adequate gore and is entertaining. Somewhat of a sci-fi-horror, starring Jason Priestly (90210, awesome!), "The Screwfly Solution" deals with an epidemic in which men, globally, are viciously slaughtering all women. A deadly scheme to erradicate the human race perhaps? "The Earth is a garden and humans are pests."

The Mad

Kate Says: I actually loved this movie. Before anything, it needs to be said that"The Mad" is definately more of a comedy than a horror, and has a very campy style to it. Why they used a generic low-grade zombie picture for the cover, I do not know, but it does not indicate what the movie is like at all. For some reason the first 10 or so minutes seemed fairly lame, but once the 'mad-cow-people' start attacking, it gets pretty hilarious. There were one or two very brief segments (you'll know what I mean if you watch it - the first involves Billy Zane's character and his girlfriend outside the restaurant) in which the director seemed to be trying too hard to do something artsy..or something.. but thankfully these weird segments are only about 30 seconds long. All in all, "The Mad" was a great b-'horror'/comedy that I wasn't expecting at all. I actually laughed out loud throughout a lot of the movie, and there's also adequate gore and gross-ness. Don't go into it expecting an oscar-worthy film (obviously) but this movie was very highly entertaining. Much much better than the cover would indicate.

Unnatural & Accidental


Hellboy Animated: Blood and Iron

Indigènes - Days of Glory (French)
