Best F(r)iends Volume 1 Tommy Wiseau

Best F(r)iends
Written by Greg Sestero
Directed by Justin MacGregor
Starring Tommy Wiseau, Greg Sestero, Kristen StephensonPino, Vince Jolivette, Paul Scheer, Rick Edwards
Lionsgate | Rated R
Release date (Digital & OnDemand): September 25, 2018

Fifteen years ago, a cult classic of epic proportions was born. Tommy Wiseau wrote, directed, produced, and starred in The Room, a film that would earn the moniker of Best Bad Movie of all time. Thanks to his co-star and friend Greg Sestero’s 2013 memoir The Disaster Artist and the James Franco Oscar-nominated film of the same name, Wiseau and Sestero have enjoyed a career resurgence. Their on-screen reunion takes place in the new film saga Best F(r)iends, written by Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor.

Best F(r)iends will inevitably be compared to The Room due to Sestero and Wiseau’s involvement. However, as a film it is much better, with a cohesive plot, well-defined characters, and genuinely engaging interactions. It does feature some truly bizarre and original moments, and thanks to Wiseau’s off-beat acting style, there is a lot of humor, both intended and not. While I don’t think Best F(r)iends will garner the reputation and midnight-movie following of The Room, fans of the actors and that film will not be disappointed.

Walt Disney Studios logo - Disney Play

If you are looking for Disney content on streaming services, you are most likely going to find it either on Hulu or Netflix. At least right now. But that will all change come 2019, when the mega studio will launch its own streaming service that will have not only its back catalog of films, but also new and original content like live-action versions of Lady and The Tramp and a new Star Wars television show.

The upcoming service has been unnamed for almost two years since it was announced in 2017. But now, we can refer to it as Disney Play. And for those who are wondering about pricing, there is also some very good news. According to a new report, it will be cheaper than Netflix. More on the story here below.

Prodigy (2017) movie review

Prodigy
Blu-ray | Digital
Directed Alex Haughey, Brian Vidal
Written by Alex Haughey, Brian Vidal
Starring Savannah Liles, Richard Neil, Jolene Andersen, Emilio Palame, David Linski, Harvey Q. Johnson, Aral Gribble
Release Date: March 13, 2018

Prodigy opens with stock video camera footage of a family throughout the years. The final shot from this recording is a young girl in a park with a book far too large for her age, as she looks up into the camera…it’s a rather haunting image and a good omen of things to come.

Some of my favorite films are contained thrillers, using only one or few locations to turn up the tension and suspense. Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope is a murder mystery all shot in one apartment. Alex Garland’s Ex Machina is almost entirely set in the expansively home of its eccentric billionaire lead character. Even Joel Schumacher’s Phone Booth pulses with intensity despite the bulk of screen time spent in the titular cubicle. Joining the ranks of these is Prodigy, written and directed by Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal. Their film is a contained thriller that spends much of its 75 minute run time on a quiet, yet intense conversation between a therapist and a patient, a young girl in a straitjacket.

Jordskott Episode 3 on Shudder

Jordskott
Episodes 3-4 Del III & Del IV
Created by Henrik Bjorn
Written by Frederick Olsen
Directed by Anders Engstrom
Starring Moa Gammel, Stina Sundlof, Johannes Brost, Hans Mosesson, Lia Boysen, Peter Andersson
Shudder
Release date: April 13, 2017

On April 6th, Swedish series Jordskott hit the United States exclusively on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder. The channel, available online at Shudder.com or on Roku, released the first two episodes of the ten-part series and releases two episodes every Thursday. The first two parts introduced us the strange town of Silverhojd, where police officer Eva Thornblad (Moa Gammel) returned home after her father’s suicide. It’s also the sight where seven years ago her daughter Josefine disappeared by the lake, a presumed drowning. Eva’s return coincides with another small child’s disappearance and her maternal and police instincts are in high gear. Despite sounding like a police procedural, there is a ton of wacky stuff going on in Silverhhojd. Eva’s father was the head of a cellulose factory and according to crazy old man Olof Gran (Hans Mosesson), this “upset the forest.” A girl appears out of nowhere in the middle of the fog and Eva is convinced is Josefine. Except this girl is infected with a parasite and apparently gets nutrients from plants. As Eva digs deeper, her own life is threatened and the conspiracies and mysteries continue to grow…

Jordskott Shudder exclusive

Jordskott
Episodes 1-2
Created by Henrik Bjorn
Starring Moa Gammel, Stina Sundlof, Johannes Brost, Hans Mosesson
Shudder
Release date: April 6, 2017

The Swedish horror series Jordskott made its American debut on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder on Thursday, April 6th. The first two hour-long episodes (of ten total) are currently available with a new episode premiering each Thursday.

Created by Henrik Bjorn, Jordskott is a hard series to pin down. There are children disappearing and reappearing, strange parasitic illnesses, conspiracies, and ancient legends about the forest. Even the word is hard to translate as a Google search of “Jordskott” yields varied translations, most coming back to “earth shot” or something with “soil.” Whatever it means, the show blends police drama with the supernatural and creates an eerie, atmospheric, and uneasy world. Horror fans should take note of this, as it’s yet another binge-worthy series.
