Review: 'Trust Me' With Clark Gregg As Another Kind of Agent

Submitted by melissa on June 7, 2014 - 1:35pm


 

You probably know Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson from Iron Man, The Avengers and NBC Marvel's Agents of Shield, but in Trust Me, he's Hollywood Agent, Howard Holloway. He stars, as well as writes and directs Trust Me, his second feature to direct, the first being Choke, the Chuck Palahniuk book-adapted film starring Sam Rockwell.

I saw this movie at last year's Tribeca Film Festival, and to be honest, I hated it. However, I decided to watch again for it's release and my reaction completely changed. Why?

Well, this is a story about a struggling Hollywood agent who lies, cheats, deceives and all without batting an eye. What's more is that it's completely acceptable in his profession. It was for this reason that I didn't like the movie the first time around, but after a re-watch, I saw more. I saw fantastic acting and a clever script.

TRUST ME, is now on demand as well as iTunes, Amazon, PS3, Xbox and other platforms. Released theatrically on June 6th in cities across the US.

June Documentary Spotlight: Dominic H. White's DSKNECTD

As I type this now on my laptop, my iPhone by my side, it's not hard to understand why a film like DSKNECTD was made. Go to a bar, a college campus, a high school lunch and even a middle school basketball game and you'll notice one thing - a large portion of people in each of these scenarios have their faces buried in their phones - texting, playing stupid ass games like Candy Crush, porn, watching the latest viral video on YouTube or any number of other (mostly stupid) things. Technological advance and access has hit society like a tsumani and engulfed the better part of the world with quick easy access to information.

What DSKNECTD delves into is the effects this access to technology and its addictive qualities has on the brain, social behaviors as well as differentiating characteristics of the generations employing its use. This film is mostly successful in laying out the issues - creation of isolated subgroups of society, increased risky sexual behavior because of sexting and earlier access to hardcore pornography, inability to create meaningful relationships with people in the real world as opposed to the virtual world, etc.

Review: Does 'Maleficent' Upstage Sleeping Beauty?

Submitted by Shalitsstache on May 30, 2014 - 6:40am


 

Look deep enough into any fable or fairy tale, and you’ll notice they are not just a candy -coated visage of one man’s warning to society. Darkness and real world consequences are the cornerstone of any decent child’s tale. However, with its new world point of view on the classic story of Sleeping Beauty; Disney’s Maleficent twists it down a contorted road of evil and treachery that seems inappropriate for any audience.

Though she sports a pair of silky feathered wings and a set of horns, Maleficent is pretty much the only human-like fairy living amongst the magical creatures that inhabit the moors near a medieval castle filled with anxious, greedy humans. As a young girl, Maleficent protects a human boy, Stefan, who came to her land to steal some precious jewels, and the two grow up together, forming a strong and loving bond. That is, until in his early adult years Stefan betrays Maleficent and steals her wings, under the guise that anyone who delivers her wings to the King will be his successor to the throne. Nine months into his reign as King, Stefan’s Queen delivers him a young daughter. Spurned by a false love and the anger created from the loss of her very essence, Maleficent curses the child; that on young Aurora’s 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel, and fall into a lifelong sleep, until the kiss of true love wakes her up.
