The Baytown Outlaws Trailer


Brick, McQueen and Lincoln Oodie are three trigger-happy redneck brothers who work for a corrupt sheriff of their town, taking down criminals in unlawful ways. After accidentally taking out the residents at an address that turns out to be wrong, they are offered $25,000 by Celeste Martin who asks them to retrieve her kidnapped handicapped godson Rob from her violent ex-husband Carlos who believes she is dead. He killed Rob's parents and had Celeste shot when he discovered he had a large sum of money in a trust that matured when he hit 18. The Oodies think of their mission as a simple smash and grab but things become less easy when Carlos sets a gang of gorgeous but deadly women on them, as well as a group of Federal agents and various other psychopaths hell bent on killing the brothers. While previously seeking fun in lawless battles to the death, the Oodie outlaws soon find themselves questioning themselves and their careers as they do everything in their power to protect the boy from harm, and not just for their own gain.

Comedy action just doesn't get any better than 'The Baytown Outlaws' and is a wonderful feature length movie debut from director Barry Battles and his co-writer Griffin Hood. It will hit theaters in January 2013 after being released On-Demand Nationwide on December 4th 2012.

On the Doll Review


Good
I have no idea what "on the doll" means, but I guess it has something to do with prostitution and pornography. Thomas Mignone's harrowing film is an expose of sorts into the sex trade underworld, offering interlocking tales that involve a call girl (Brittany Snow) who's looking to rob her richest client, two teens (Candice Accola and Chole Domont) who're lured into Internet porn by their seedy teacher, and a porn ad editor (Josh Janowicz) who is trying to pay off a mobster to get an old friend out from behind the glass at a peep show booth. But it isn't just sex that ties them all together, there is loads of violence surrounding their lives every day.

Most of On the Doll's stories are writ small, but each is intense (save for one, which concerns another fetish-oriented call girl who's trying to get out of the business... and failing). Mignone does a remarkable job at taking what starts as a mild flirtation or tiptoeing into perversity and showing how baby steps can soon lead to full-on, downhill slides. The movie is surprisingly at its best in the story of the two teens, who first flirt with their perverted teacher (played memorably by Ocean's 11 series character actor Eddie Jemison), then end up taking a ride with him to the local web porn production studio, where they're crudely sized up for their value to the viewing audience. It's a shocking transition: Just minutes earlier these girls were worrying about their grades.

False Prophets Review


Terrible
Yikes, this is bad. I didn't think it would be possible to make a movie that would offend both the religious right and the pro-choice crowd, but False Prophets manages to do so. In the film, a woman (Lori Heuring) believes she is carrying a virgin birth (never mind the fact that she has a boyfriend), and opts to have it aborted. But somehow a fundie Christian group finds out about this and intervenes in an attempt to get her to have the baby and give it to them for adoption. Poor Lori is torn every which way until she ends up having the baby in a field, thanks to a helpful gas station attendent/prophet.

Swimfan Review


Terrible
Erika Christensen goes from zoned-out druggie (Traffic) to lame vanilla psycho in Swimfan, unequivocally one of the worst films of the year.

Stop me if you've heard this one before. A cute young gal named Madison (Christensen) moves to a New Jersey town and instantly becomes smitten with star swimmer Ben (Jesse Bradford). But there's trouble: Ben's got a girlfriend (Shiri Appleby), and he's got a rough past... trouble with drugs and a stint in juvie. Now he's cleaned up and is eyeing a scholarship to Stanford, but an ill-conceived one-nighter with Madison lands him in all kinds of trouble once again.

A Walk To Remember Review


Good
A Walk to Remember can and will be known best as "The Mandy Moore Project," the first feature where the popular teen singer stars on the big screen. She is the focal point of the marketing, the reason that most kids will see the movie, and the one player to be under the microscope. Luckily for Moore, and the film, her flaws are few, as she slides easily into one of the more interesting teen roles in recent adolescent films, as the originality of her character, her well-metered performance, and director Adam Shankman's lively delivery lift this movie above most of its counterparts.

The film may look like a relative to the Freddie Prinze Jr. vehicle She's All That (1999), but it's more like a cousin to Robert Mulligan's The Man in the Moon (1991). The story begins predictably enough: Landon (Shane West), a young teen sowing his oats through his high school years, is forced to take on charity work after orchestrating a stupid stunt that nearly paralyzes a kid. While mopping up hallways and tutoring youngsters, he comes across Jamie Sullivan (Moore), a level-headed duckling (not so ugly), with a good heart and religion at her core. If this were Prinze pap, Landon would spruce her up and show the world what it's been missing. Instead, in this Karen Janszen adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel, Jamie stays true to herself, and the shy girl has a life-changing effect on the guy.

Basic Review


Grim

A Hollywood-slick military mystery-thriller packed with over-scripted, less than cogent twists, "Basic" is so full of cheap red herrings that watching it feels like gorging on a Long John Silver's all-you-can-eat buffet.

John Travolta stars as Tom Hardy, a cocky ex-Army Ranger turned possibly crooked DEA agent who is tapped by his former commander (Tim Daly) to interrogate survivors of a live-fire Special Forces training mission which went so badly awry that none of the survivors will talk about it with on-post investigators.

Of the nine soldiers that went into the Panama jungle during a hurricane under the command of hated, mercilessly hard-driving, order-barking Sgt. Nathan West (a perfectly cast Samuel L. Jackson), it seems only two came back alive. Everyone else, including the sergeant, was killed in either a friendly-fire accident or a heated showdown over command structure, West's psychological abuse and a possible drug-use cover-up.

Swimfan Review


Grim

"Swimfan" is the kind of thriller that requires, for the plot to move forward, a complete absence of common sense on the part of the hero -- in this case a high school swim team star (Jesse Bradford) with a sultry, psycho, jailbait stalker (Erika Christensen).

No matter what crazy thing the deranged girl does to him -- leave her panties in his car, email him 81 times in a day, spike his urine sample with steroids, frame him for murder -- Bradford never tells a single person what's really going on because if anyone was watching his back, there would be no movie.

Which isn't to say "Swimfan" doesn't have its guilty pleasures. OK, one guilty pleasure. Christensen -- Michael Douglas's smack-addicted daughter in "Traffic," a beautiful girl with the heart-shaped face and sly, portentous eyes -- is such a fun, wicked, spiteful villainess that she keeps the flick afloat all by herself.

A Walk To Remember Review


Terrible

Can a small town's handsome, generically troubled high school bad boy be reformed by the soft-focus love of a plain, virginal minister's daughter? Will finding out that the girl, despite showing no symptoms whatsoever, is dying from Leukemia change the way he feels about her? Will over-scripted, highly telegraphed, mushy and grand romantic gestures follow? Will he be inspired to reach for his dreams because of her?

If you can answer these questions without being spoon-fed 102 minutes of cheaply cloying, saccharine yet flavorless syrup, then congratulations -- you've just saved yourself the price of admission to the trite, two-hanky teen romance "A Walk to Remember."

Adapted from a novel by sap-master Nicholas Sparks ("Message in a Bottle") and directed by the desperately uncreative Adam Shankman ("The Wedding Planner"), this is a movie that launches soggy spitballs of sentimentality in nearly every scene as in-crowd malcontent Landon (the blasé and insincere Shane West) falls for candied outcast Jamie (pop princess Mandy Moore), in spite of her mousy brown hair and burlap sack wardrobe (it's hard to make Mandy Moore look dowdy).
