    SAFE HOUSE Review

    Ruh-roh. Looks like there is a reason this is coming out in the 'soft' part of the year.

    I Reckon BAYTOWN DISCO Is Gunnin’ To Be The Hillbilly SMOKIN’ ACES | CHUD.com

    These one-sheets for Baytown Disco alerted me to the existence of this little film, which was in no way on my radar before. Not that I’ve caught on I see that Billy Bob Thornton, Eva Longoria, and Paul Wesley star in what I have to assume will be a VOD-against-theatrical release, though I have no actual details on the distribution.

    The film is apparently the result of a successful pitch by filmmakers based on a blacklisted script from 2009…

    After her ex-husband Carlos shoots Celeste three times in the gut, it’s time to play dirty. In the fight for her godson, Rob, she hires three outlawed and redneck brothers to bring him back to her. But nothing can be that simple in the South. What begins as a small rescue mission rises to a southern battle royal. This odd team must shoot their way through gorgeous female assassins, Native American hunters, Federal agents, and a whole lot of metal coming after them, while protecting Celeste’s innocent child...


    ...Everything about this project screams Smokin’ Aces, perhaps by way of Black Snake Moan and a touch of diluted Devil’s Rejects. That could be the recipe for wincing pain, or a very fun time.

    That reminds me. Hobo With A Shotgun has been playing on Showtime recently. If you ain't seen it yet, now's your chance.

    Gina Carano to Star in John Stockwell’s Action Flick IN THE BLOOD

    Can't wait until a few years from now when she gets all Segal, and starts making bad direct-to-dvd flicks with 50 cent/Val Kilmer.

    Or maybe continues to work in decent movies and has a solid career?

    Brian Taylor to Write and Direct TWISTED METAL Movie

    Now this is a director-material pairing that makes perfect sense. Brian Taylor, one half of the directing team behind the Crank franchise and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, has been tapped to write and direct an adaptation of the video game Twisted Metal. Deadline reports that the film will revolve around the underground death fights from the game series, as weaponized cars race for the proprietor Calypso, “a string-puller dedicated to examining the human condition.” Fan favorites like Sweet Tooth and Doll Face are poised to appear in the feature film.

    Taylor and his directing partner Mark Neveldine are known for their active directing style, in which they hook themselves up to rigs and wires in order to get in-your-face camera angles. A Twisted Metal adaptation already has the makings of an insane moviegoing experience, but with Taylor onboard I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be in for one hell of a ride. Avi Arad is set to produce the pic for Sony Pictures. If you’re unfamiliar with the game series, hit the jump to watch a trailer.


    Yes please!!!!

    Raid: Redemption, The (2012) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    And while that all seem pretty simple, don’t let the basic description fool you- if you call yourself an action fan, there’s just nothing that can possibly prepare you for what Evans throws at you during the film’s entire running time in The Raid: Redemption. Simply put- this is hands down the best action flick of the last ten years and if you dig on flicks like Assault on Precinct 13, Die Hard, Hard Boiled, then you’ll want to have your ass firmly planted in a theater seat when The Raid: Redemption gets its limited theatrical run on March 23rd.

    What’s amazing about Evans’ work on The Raid is that he somehow manages to find a way to consistently continue to rev up the madness throughout each act of the film and there’s never a lagging moment from start to finish. Just when you think there’s no possible new way to punch, kick or kill a dude- The Raid shows you just how wrong you are; it’s hard to remember the last time an action film had this kind of raw, visceral impact, with choreography from Uwais, Ruhian and countless other fighters offering up some truly stunning set pieces.

    And while John Woo may be the guy who created the “bullet ballet,” it’s evident that Evans is the right guy to take on that mantle now as his work on The Raid takes the concept to the next level with a masterful blend of sword play, gun play and good old-fashioned jaw-smashing fisticuffs that looks as beautiful as it does painful.

    Of course, violence and action on their own do not necessarily make for a great film, so thankfully Evans manages to subtly work in several storylines that simmer just below the surface of all the action, making for a truly entertaining experience all around. All of the leads in The Raid: Redemption deliver incredible performances beyond just what they can do with their fists and feet with Uwais establishing himself here as a talent on the rise (seriously, Hollywood- put this guy in every action movie from here on out and you won’t be sorry with the results). It’s really only a matter of time before both Uwais and Evans blow up here in the States, with The Raid: Redemption already being touted by many critics as one of the best films of 2012 and It’s only March.

    And while all of this may sound dangerously close to gushing, the bottom line is that The Raid: Redemption is worthy of every single accolade it receives and then some. It’s been a while since there has been an action movie this visceral and jaw-dropping; as relative newcomer to the world of directing, it’s astonishing just how masterfully Evans blends action, suspense and familial drama so intricately, making The Raid a modern pulp masterpiece that is absolutely worth all the hype and praise that has been heaped upon it since the film debuted during the Toronto Film Festival last year.

    Both Evans and Uwais are clearly at the very top of their game and the results are nothing less than astounding and I’m already waiting with baited breath to see what the pair can concoct for their follow-up feature.

    For all you action movie aficionados out there, I cannot say this enough- make sure to seek out The Raid: Redemption during its limited theatrical run later this month; the sheer spectacle of what Evans and his incredibly talented cast and crew have managed to achieve with their low-budget, high-ambition action flick absolutely deserves to be enjoyed on the big screen.
