New Movies 2 Review! 9-28-2010
Hi everyone! Got a new batch of movies to review –
MPI Media –
The Killer Inside Me – Stars – Jessica Alba, Casey Affleck, Kate Hudson, Simon Baker and Bill Pullman – When Affleck’s sheriff is asked to railroad a talkative prostitute out of town before she makes trouble, he realizes it’s easier to just get rid of her for good. Unfortunately, covering up that murder means eliminating more and more people as his problems and complications spiral out of control. Even worse, he’s starting to enjoy committing the crimes a lot more than he ever enjoyed dishing out the punishment, Based on the pulp fiction classic by Jim Thompson (The Grifters), The Killer Inside Me is :an assured, stylish film” [Guardian UK] that reveals the danger when a lawman’s badge is hiding a cold, cold heart.
This movie looks to be very good! Great cast, scary-sounding movie also looks sexy. One of the films I look forward to seeing the most right now!
Mercy – Stars – Erika Christensen, James Caan, Scott Caan, Dylan McDermott, Wendy Glenn, Troy Garity – A best-selling novelist (Scott Caan of Ocean’s Eleven) one-night stands his way through LA until he finally meets his match with Mercy (beautiful newcomer Wendy Glenn), a book critic who calls his bluff in this powerful romance that Caan wrote, produced and stars in. Featuring Dylan McDermott (“The Practice”), Erika Christensen (Oscar-winning Traffic, TV’s Parenthood) and directed by photographer superstar Patrick Hoelck in his film debut, “Mercy is a riveting drama. It’s also a memorable moment of cinematic history when rising Hollywood star Scott Caan shares the screen with his legendary father James Caan (The Godfather). Their combustible scene together is the beating heart of this bittersweet look at lost love.
7 Days – How far would you go to get revenge on the man who raped and killed your little girl? In the tradition of the horror masterpiece The Last House On The Left, this Canadian nail-biter that premiered at Sundance shows a doctor (Claude Legault) kidnapping, tying up and then methodically extracting every drop of justice from the vile criminal he is convinced did that horrific deed. The hostage (a very creepy Martin Dubreil) begs and pleads and insistss he’s innocent…only to turn around and boast of his crimes, perhaps in the vain hope that the nightmare will end sooner. But the not-so-good doctor has told his wife and the police tand the world he will not relent – for seven days.
Under Still Waters – Stars – Lake Bell, Jason Clarke, Clifton Collins Jr. – A weekend at a country home is the perfect chance for a young married couple Andrew and Charlie to patch up their difference. But a near-collision with stranded motorcycle rider Jacob throws a curve into those plans. Three is not just a crowd. In the middle of nowhere, it’s dangerous, especially when Andrew can’t understand why his wife seems so smitten with Jacob or why the stranger is carrying a gun. A friendly gesture leads to a tense showdown in writer-director Carolyn Miller’s thrill ride featuring fresh performances by rising stars Jason Clarke (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek) and the striking Lake Bell (It’s Complicated, Shrek Forever After).
Vivendi Entertainment –

Holy Rollers – Stars – Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Bartha – Sam (Jesse Eisenberg) has always followed the strict rules set out by his tight-knit Hasidic community in New York.
