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.

Cherry Pie And Damn Good Coffee: A Beginners Guide To Twin Peaks


David Lynch Kyle MacLachlan Sheryl Lee Ray Wise Twin Peaks

'Twin Peaks' may be returning for a third season with Kyle MacLachlan back as Dale Cooper, but after two and a half decades a new generation brings new potential viewers. So what do 'Twin Peaks' virgins need to know about this cult classic?

David Lynch is bringing back 'Twin Peaks'

David Lynch is well-known for his quirky, often bizarre filmmaking, but his early 90s TV series 'Twin Peaks' has by far the biggest cult following of all. Set in a sleepy, fictional town in Washington, 'Twin Peaks' was an intriguing mix of murder mystery, psychological thriller and supernatural horror. Now, almost 25 years since the dramatic conclusion of series 2 which saw main character Special Agent Dale Cooper being replaced by an evil doppelganger after apparently rescuing his lover Annie Blackburn, it has been announced that a third series is getting under way. It's been a while, but here's ten things you need to know:

Excision Review


Very Good

There's an element of parody to this jet-black comedy, but the film is so creepy that it gets under our skin. And even if it feels a bit ridiculous, the story challenges us with an exploration of bullying and social pressure that's deeply unsettling. All while writer-director Bates gleefully keeps us off-balance with a shifting mix of broad comedy and growing horror.

It's also a deranged coming-of-age tale about Pauline (McCord), a teen outcast who delusionally believes that she is destined to be a great surgeon. This is mainly because she wants to cure her sister Grace (Winter) of cystic fibrosis. So she teaches herself surgical skills by piercing her nose, among other things. She also propositions a hot classmate (Sumpter) about losing her virginity, partly because this is in her master plan and partly to annoy his mean-girl girlfriend (McCook), and he doesn't refuse. Meanwhile, her mother (Lords) makes it clear that she doesn't like Pauline, treating her husband (Bart) like dirt while doting on Grace.

The film's opening scenes are like a Todd Solondz movie, with grotesque characters saying staggeringly rude things to each other. And as events unfold, each person develops some complexity that makes them intriguing. It also helps that scenes are packed with lively side characters played by starry veterans. McDowell, Matlin and Wise play school employees who are baffled by Pauline's refusal to toe the line. And Waters is dryly hilarious as the sardonic priest Pauline is forced to see for counselling.

Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie Trailer


Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are given one billion dollars to make a movie by the Schlaaang Corporation. Instead, the pair spend nearly all of the money and use what little they have remaining to make a three minute movie, which turns out to be a disappointment.

X-Men First Class Trailer


It's 1962 and the world is on the brink of starting a new world war. As far as the general public are aware, mutants do not exist. Two of those very mutants still discovering their abilities are Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr (Professor X and Magneto), two equally intelligent men who share a secret; they both hold incredible powers.

Twin Peaks: The Complete Series Review


Excellent
X-Files, Heroes, Lost? They all owe their very souls to a short-lived TV series that ran for just two seasons from 1990-1992. You might have heard of it: Twin Peaks.

I'll admit now that I wore an "I killed Laura Palmer" t-shirt thoughout my freshman year of college. Am I embarrassed by that now? Yes, but not as much as you'd think. Twin Peaks was a bona-fide phenomenon, the most subversively popular thing of its day and still a brainy-slash-guilty pleasure with few equals.

RoboCop Review


Extraordinary
RoboCop was released in 1987, and it's the sort of film that looks like it was made by somebody who knew America only from what he read in newspapers. Which may be close to the truth; Dutch director Paul Verhoeven had been living in the U.S. for less than a decade when he made this, his first big-budget Hollywood film. The script gleefully takes on every myth told about the U.S. during the Reagan '80s: Cities are dens of evil and full of constant gunplay, authority has been brought to heel by capitalism, technology has crushed our humanity to atoms, the media destroys the morals of children. RoboCop plays all of this out as a bloody farce - it's both funny and violent as hell -- but it also knows that there are kernels of truth in all those statements. Great science fiction sheds light on the real world by recreating it radically, and RoboCop is great science fiction - it's one of the best dystopian fantasies about America put to film.

The place is Detroit, the time sometime in the near future. The part of the city known as "Old Detroit" is a cesspool of grime, slums, and toxic sludge; "New Detroit" is an empty promise of a shining new city that we see only on billboards. The police force is privatized, and one of its officers, Alex J. Murphy (Peter Weller) is grotesquely wounded during a fight with a gang. OCP, the company running the force, has had back luck creating a purely mechanical cop. So it claims Murphy's nearly-dead body and transforms it into a man-machine hybrid that's programmed to perform police work ethically. On his first night on the beat, he stops a rape in progress, shooting the rapist in the crotch and telling the woman in a chill monotone: "You have suffered an emotional shock. I will notify a rape crisis center."

The Battle Of Shaker Heights Review


Good
We're two movies into Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's Project Greenlight, and I'm ready to call the experiment a success. At what, I'm still not sure. The behind-the-scenes antics captured each week for the multi-part HBO series provide an unprecedented insight into a movie's arduous journey from script to screen. Week to week, it provides excellent reality television.

But the end results - from Stolen Summer to this year's The Battle of Shaker Heights - haven't proven strong enough to separate themselves from the series. They struggle to stand on their own two independent feet.

Two Can Play That Game Review


Weak

A movie that preaches dishonesty, trickery and manipulation as the keys to romantic happiness, "Two Can Play That Game" is populated by pathetically shallow "players" of both sexes and very talented actors trapped by their skin color in a tired genre of self-perpetuating stereotypes.

"Two Can Play" is about a successful black ad executive (Vivica A. Fox) who thinks her man, a successful black lawyer (Morris Chestnut), may be running around on her. Her solution for shaping him up (rather than confronting him and having an adult conversation or just leaving to find someone better) is to launch into a 10-day plan that includes breaking up, not returning his calls, making sure he sees her with other men, going to his house, getting him hot, then leaving, and a whole litany of other vindictive head games.

Of course, all of this is meant to be risqué and amusing, but in fact it just makes the movie's heroine look like the kind of shrill, immature, self-centered strumpet whom no man in his right mind would want to be saddled with.
