Alter Egos - Trailer Trailer


Fridge is a superhero with powers that are pretty self-explanatory, but he's not the only one. The country is pretty much overrun with crime-fighting caped crusaders; so much so that their government funding has been cut and people are less in support of them - the police even less so. With this huge problem hanging over the heads of Fridge and his best friend C-Thru, they are presented with the mission to earn superheroes respect once again. However, things take a difficult turn in Fridge's life when he discovers that his girlfriend seems to prefer his super alter ego over Brendan, his everyday geeky self, and he decides to break up with her via email. Things get even more complicated when he comes face to face with his arch enemy, Shrink, who killed his parents many years ago.

This hilarious flick gives a new meaning to 'comic' superheroes. It's a wonderful comedy take on the world of heroes and villains that has for so long grasped cinematic and comic book audiences internationally. With deliberately terribly named characters, 'Alter Egos' has been directed and written by the genius that is comic book fan Jordan Galland ('Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead'). It first opened at the Fantasia Film Festival in July and is set for release nationwide on November 20th 2012.

Starring: Kris Lemche, Joey Kern, Brooke Nevin, Danny Masterson, Christine Evangelista, John Ventimiglia, Sean Lennon, Marina Squerciati & Geneva Carr

Grind Review


Weak
Putting off their futures as long as they can, four lifelong buds hit the road in hopes of landing a pro skating sponsorship. Eric (Mike Vogel) motivates the group, made up of college-bound Dustin (Adam Brody), spacey Matt (Vince Vieluf), and ladies' man Sweet Lou (Joey Kern, blatantly ripping off Matthew McConaughey's Dazed and Confused persona). Their plan includes shadowing pro skater Jimmy Wilson (Jason London), though Eric's quick to be distracted by the smokin' hot skater chick (Jennifer Morrison) that keeps wheeling across his path.

Surprisingly, the four friends aren't slackers. They're motivated when it comes to getting what they want, which in this case happens to be an audience for their "Sponsor Me" tapes and, hopefully, a long-term contract and a gig skating for a living. Along the way, they encounter a healthy mixture of professional skaters, scantily clad skate babes (one female is actually listed in the credits as "Another Hot Girl"), and an army of washed up comics in cameos. Director Casey La Scala certainly keeps us guessing, as Bobcat Goldthwait, Dave Foley, Randy Quaid, and Tom Green grace the screen.

Cabin Fever Review


Excellent
There once was a time in movie history when party-hardy kids would head into the woods and get their heads bashed in by some masked psycho. Ah, the good old days. Writer/director Eli Roth remembers that time fondly with his no-apologies, balls-to-the-wall, blood-splattering thriller that recalls a time when Leatherface massacred in Texas and Jason spooked Camp Crystal Lake.

Cabin Fever doesn't just look like -- or mock -- those late '70s/early '80s horror thrillers; it actually is one. Roth takes his source material and deftly adds layers, with the result being something eerily familiar and yet altogether original.

Grind Review


Zero

Think "Blue Crush" without water -- or awesome surfing footage, likable characters with real personalities, beautiful girls in bikinis or anything else worth watching -- and I guarantee whatever you have in mind is still better than "Grind."

A skateboarding road-trip flick that will bore real skateboarders silly (and I should know -- I've been one since the late '70s), it includes barely 10 minutes of badly-edited actual boarding, less than half of which features the main characters (no-name actors using obvious stunt doubles), who in the course of the movie perform only one trick (at the very end) that's beyond the abilities of any dedicated junior high school punk with a modicum of talent.

Built on the "Crush" story template, the rest of the movie's 100-minute run-time is spent following four witless, college-age pro-tour wannabes around the country as they stalk and hassle the current king of sponsored skateboarding (Jason London) to look at a videotape of their supposedly fancy footwork.
