Review: 'Nothing Bad Can Happen' - Terrifying Official Selection of Cannes Film Festival

Submitted by Indiebizliz on June 26, 2014 - 6:40am


Religion can be a person’s saving grace. It can be the spark that ignites war. It can destroy and captivate.

Director, Katrin Gebbe, brings us Nothing Bad Can Happen. A monstrous tale based on true events, we follow Tore, a wandering, Christian punk youth looking for a place to fit in. Stumbling upon a man and his stepfamily, he becomes a part of their home. In doing so, he is subjected to an abuse of his faith. He truly believes that Jesus will protect him, prayer will solve all wrongs, and that good will triumph over evil. It is this faith-blind ignorance that lands him in some very dangerous hot water, as this family, particularly Benno, the father figure, plays with his affection and tests his belief system. Rewarded one minute and tortured both emotionally and physically the next, Tore knows no better than to accept the love and hate, all with open arms.

Review: 'The Case Against 8' Premiering on HBO Today

Submitted by Indiebizliz on June 23, 2014 - 6:40am


I went to Catholic school for 8 years. I wore uniforms, I went to church, and l learned prayers. In my final year, a religion teacher told me that if I came to my mother and told her I was gay, it would be the same thing as if I told her I had killed someone. I am NOT a product of Catholic school.

In the new HBO documentary, The Case Against 8, we follow probably one of the most important lawsuits in our history. 5 years in the making, with behind the scenes footage of the entire case, this incredibly emotional and powerful documentary is one that is so important for everyone to see. No matter what side of the aisle you are on, The Case Against 8 is a gripping, intimate story of the people who fight for marriage equality.

We've all heard of Proposition 8 in one way or another, but do we really understand what it is or are we just being told how to feel based one pundit or another. I will admit, all I knew about Prop 8 was that it was wrong in my eyes. It was blocking same sex couples their right to be married. It had legally defined marriage as being solely between a man and a woman. Everyone was shocked when Prop 8 passed with 52 percent of the vote. 18,000 people that had been married in 2008 in California, were now left with nothing but a useless piece of paper. The Case Against 8 we follow the four plaintiffs and the team of lawyers who fought for the equal rights of same-sex couples. The most surprising turn of events; who becomes the lead council on the case. Ted Olson was the lead council for the Republicans in the historic 2000, Bush vs Gore Supreme Court decision. A case that still haunts much of our history. Although, Ted Olson believes that when two people love each other, they have the right to be wed no matter their sexual orientation.

'Coherence' Turns A Dinner Party Into A Sci-Fi Twisty Headscratcher And You'll Love It

Submitted by melissa on June 20, 2014 - 5:45pm


On the night of an astronomical anomaly, eight friends at a dinner party experience a troubling chain of reality bending events. Part cerebral sci-fi and part relationship drama, Coherence is a tightly focused, intimately shot film that quickly ratchets up with tension and mystery.

I could tell you more, but it'll totally ruin it for you. What I will say is that you should watch this with someone so you can discuss.

The first feature film from writer/director James Ward Byrkit, it was co-written with Alex Manugian (who plays Alex) and produced by Lene Bausager. The movie features a seasoned cast of actors/writers in TV and movies.

Currently playing in theaters in New York and Los Angeles, it opens in San Jose, CA on 6/27, then expands each week. Streaming and downloads available August 5th. Pre-order here.

Review: 'Third Person' - He Said, She Said

Submitted by Indiebizliz on June 20, 2014 - 8:40am


They say, “Write what you know.” As a writer, I always pull from my own experiences first. Then the imagination takes over.

Academy Award winning Writer/ Director, Paul Haggis (Crash), lets us into the mind of a fictional, Pulitzer prize winning novelist in Third Person. Michael (Liam Neeson) has essentially locked himself in a hotel suite in Paris. He is desperate to finish his new book but emotionally is held back by a past (and present) that is haunting him. Enter his young mistress, Anna (Olivia Wilde), to stir up a little fun and whole lot of trouble. They play a cat and mouse game that seemingly suits one another’s age and stage. Then we hop to Rome, where we find corporate conman Sean (Adrian Brody) confronted with a gypsy woman, Monika (Moran Atias), pulling him into what may be a long con of her own. Finally, in New York, we meet Julia (Mila Kunis), a former soap star whose ex husband, Rick (James Franco), is trying to keep her from having any visitation rights after their son is almost killed in her care. Maria Bello plays Kunis’ lawyer, Theresa.
