The 33 Trailer


For most people in the modern world, they don't need to think about the consequences of modern day living, it's hard to think that people still need to mine land physically and often in treacherous conditions. In 2010 the world was reminded of just how risky that job can be.

When a 100+ year-old copper & gold mine in Chile suffers considerable damage to the shaft due to a cave-in, the world's news is quick to report the disaster. All life was thought to be lost and there was little hope of finding survivors, however deep inside the mine, a group of 33 men were fighting for survival. As the world learnt of their battle for survival, the onlookers could only imagine the tribulations the men inside faced. Main communication with the outside world was from one miner called Mario who was affectionately named 'super Mario', thanks to his videos, he could relay information to the support crew telling them about the men's wellbeing and progress.

Director Patricia Riggen's The 33 was filmed with the cooperation of the miners and tells their story from 700 meters underground. The 33 is Patricia Riggen's first major directorial role, though in 2012 she shot Girl In Progress starring Eva Mendes.

Jenni Rivera's First And Last Acting Role In Filly Brown For April Release (Video)


Jenni Rivera Lou Diamond Phillips

Filly Brown had its début at the Sundance Film Festival midway through 2012, garnering a strong opening with some great reviews. However, no one could foretell the tragedy that would befall one of its stars: Jenni Rivera. The iconic Latino singer died in a plane crash in December 2012, and Filly Brown was her first, and sadly last film role. The official trailer has now been released and the movie has finally been given a release date of April 13th 2013, after much debate over whether it should be released at all.

Filly Brown is the story of the eponymous latter-day generation Latino street poet who tries desperately to fix her broken family, which fell apart as a result of drug abuse and crime, through the use of rap. In her rise to stardom she comes up against many challenges and plenty of people trying to knock her down - her father, played by Lou Diamond Phillips, is one of her biggest obstacles. 

Not only is this movie a big deal because of Rivera's co-starring role, but also because of the demographic it centres around. The Huffington Post quotes Edward James Olmos on the importance of seeing Latino culture in mainstream movies. "We represent 16% of the population of the country, but we have less than 2% of the images on film and television." He says, praising the movie, "Filly Brown is made for a universal audience, but it could become the first major Latino breakthrough film to be embraced by the entire Latino community in full. It's a story that digs deeply into the family and into music...two elements that Latinos love."

Bats Review


Bad
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I don't shut up often. But, when the lights go down, my mouth clamps shut... Unless its a complete Z-grade movie like Bats.

Bats is one of those movies where you have to get popcorn just to throw it at the screen. It is one of those movies where you have to make fun of those little kids scared out of their wits three rows behind you on the other side of the theatre. Most of all, however, it is one of those movies where you have to provide a running commentary.

Supernova Review


Weak
When near objects of immense gravity such as black holes, it is said that all things bend. Perhaps it is only fitting that a movie such as Supernova, which poses as sci-fi / mystery / horror and that takes place near an object of large gravity, should have the plot twists bent. Common sense tells us that if you bend something that is already bent it will either become more bent or straighten out. Supernova's plot twists straight out, and the result is something completely by the books.

Supernova is the story about a rescue vessel sent into deep space to pick someone up from a rogue moon. To make a short story shorter, they find both the person (who is, of course, accompanied with creepy music) and an alien artifact capable of creating new matter. Every person who touches the stuff becomes endowed with superhuman strength.

The Big Hit Review


Terrible
Why would any producer gamble $13 million on a trash heap like The Big Hit? There's no excuse to give such a horrendous movie the green light. I hope Ben Ramsey's script was a very good read, because that's the only explanation producers Warren Zide and Wesley Snipes have.

According to the production notes, director Che-Kirk Wong actually had considerable confidence in the project. "The script was very original," explains Wong. "I enjoy doing action sequences, but action means nothing if we don't have decent characters. They're both equally important to me." Is Wong thinking of the same movie I just endured?

Picking Up The Pieces Review


Bad
Normally, I'd say any movie that features Woody Allen as a homocidal maniac is okay in my book, if only Picking Up the Pieces didn't bore you to tears en route to the funny stuff, which consists solely of Allen's spare one-liners. The plot, involving a New Mexico community that rallies around Allen's dead wife's severed hand thanks to its miracle-granting powers, shows a ton of promise, but never delivers. Note to Alfonso Arau: more boobs.
