God's Not Dead 2 Trailer


Grace is a teacher who loves her job and when a student asks her if a real life story is the equivalent to something that happened in the bible, she's forced to answer with her heart and quickly Grace finds herself in a lot of trouble. Holding Christian values is an important part of Grace's life and though she doesn't teach that in the classroom, being asked provide an answer to a question is a very different scenario.

Grace finds herself being reported to the school administration and furthermore she's at risk of losing her job. In the centre of a nasty court battle, both sides have a valid argument but Grace must turn to her faith and beliefs to find the strength to pull her on through.

God's Not Dead 2 is set for nationwide release in April 2016.

Sinister Review


Very Good

There's a nasty edge to this horror film that makes it much creepier than most, which gives Hawke the chance to give an unnervingly haunted performance. As the script reveals its hideous secrets, the filmmakers really make our skin crawl. Although it's not easy to figure out what the point is, since the whole film seems to be merely an exercise in scaring the audience.

It's all based in true crime, as author Ellison (Hawke) drags his wife Tracy (Rylance) and kids to a new town so he can investigate another unsolved murder. What he hasn't told Tracy is that they're living in the crime scene, an unusually dark house that has a box of home movies in the attic that reveal a much more gruesome horror than Ellison was expecting. The killings at hand turn out to be part of a string of hideous murders that seem to have a supernatural twist.

Indeed, this film takes a very bleak trip into the darkest recesses of the imagination: the deaths on these home movies are so hideous that we can barely watch them. But then, this also means that the film is more unnerving than nine out of 10 horror movies. And Hawke is a solid central character we can identify with, as he's unable to stop digging into the story, looking further into these murders and watching every last home movie even though he knows he should really stop. He gives Ellison an earthy honesty that carries us along with him, even when some standard movie characters pop up, including an angry sheriff (Thompson), his dopey deputy (Ransone) and an expert professor (D'Onofrio).

Sinister Trailer


Ellison is an aspiring true-crime writer who decides to move his family into the house where a family of four were brutally murdered nine months previous in order to work on his next novel which he is determined will be a success. When Ellison takes a visit to the attic, he finds, in the center of the floor, a single box with a movie projector and several film reels tucked inside. The films have titles such as 'BBQ '79' and 'Family Hanging Out '11' - the latter is the most recent so Ellison sets it up on the projector. The clip shows the family that were recently murdered enjoying one another's company before cutting to an image of the four of them when they killed. Shocked, Ellison passes the videos on to the police to investigate further and notices the only similarity between all the murders of different families in the house on each of the film reels is a recurring symbol which he later discovers is the mark of a pagan deity named Bagul who he is told feeds on the souls of children. Legend has it that children who see the image of Bagul are vulnerable to his attack because he is alive through his own image. When he begins to target Ellison's family, he realises he must escape before they become the next victims.

Die Hard 2 Review


Weak
Die Hard had it all: a sympathetic hero, a wonderfully serpentine villain, kick-ass fight scenes and shootouts (which are really hard to make entertaining, in the glut of routine action flicks that overflow our video racks), an enjoyably quirky supporting cast of character actors, and dialogue you could really sink your teeth into. ("I wanted this to be professional. Efficient, adroit, cooperative, not a lot to ask. Alas, your Mr. Takagi did not see it that way, so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life.") This flick was so pervasive, we had to endure a slew of rip-offs: Die Hard at sea, Die Hard on an ocean liner, Die Hard in a friggin' library! OK, so they never did one in a library, but that would be pretty funny, wouldn't it? [Indeed they did do it in a library: Masterminds. -Ed.]

What a pity that Die Hard 2: Die Harder (based on the novel 58 Minutes) falls into the trap of being just another Die Hard in Washington's Dulles Airport. I mean, it's kinda funny that John McClane (Bruce Willis, having a good ol' time) acknowledges his pathetic luck. Not this shit again! He's waiting for his wife's plane to land when terrorists seize control of the airport, crashing a plane just to prove that they'll stop at nothing. Yes, they will stop at nothing! Insert an evil laugh here, and throw in a moustache twirl, why dontcha?
