The current state of social media and journalism is in shambles. Truth is secondary to a scandal. Even our entertainment is littered with a US VS THEM mentality. I spoke with social science specialist Aydin Paladin about these matters because I'm sure as hell not knowledgeable about all this to speak intelligently in regards to these topics. Check out the interview below and then head on over to her YouTube channel for more in-depth analyses.

Today we had the honor of speaking with Michael Dorn ('Star Trek: The Next Generation') about his role in the upcoming sci-fi spectacle 'Agent Revelation'. Mr. Dorn gave us some insight into the production, casting, and how a successful actor/director relationship works. He also let us in on his upcoming project, a Western that he will write, direct, and star in. Check it out below.

Agent Revelation will be available on-demand on January 22nd.

Synopsis:

Jim Yung, a rejected CIA analyst, has been exposed to an ancient 'dust' that transforms him into a super soldier that can communicate with aliens. When a secret organization works with him to discover why aliens have returned to Earth, the truth comes at a price.

Think Daughters of Darkness and Dark Shadows. That's what came to my mind when I watched Mickey Reece's Climate of the Hunter. Part brooding horror film, part vampire flick, this indie project combines a lot of 1970s nostalgia while also challenging the audience. Is everything as it seems? Is there something truly sinister at work here?

We chatted with the film's director Mickey Reece about his inspirations and making a period piece in the current age. Check it out below.

Climate of the Hunter is currently available on-demand.

Synopsis:

Two sisters, Alma and Elizabeth, along with a dog who’s described as a “philosopher,” have come to Alma’s remote house to reconnect with Wesley after twenty years. Alma is recently divorced, Elizabeth is a workaholic in Washington, D.C., while Wesley lives in Paris dealing with a wife recently struck with a fatal disease. When the three come together for dinner it has all the makings of a lovely adult melodrama about loneliness, and the desire to connect and share our lives with someone… but we must add to the mix one otherworldly piece of information: Wesley could be a vampire.

Olivia Luccardi (It Follows, Channel Zero) gave us a call to discuss her role in the post-apocalyptic thriller by Alex Knapp called Go/Don't Go. The film which is, admittedly, a slow burn features some great camera work for an indie film. Though more of a character study than an outright nail-biting thriller set in an unpopulated world, Go/Don't Go hits a bit differently than we were expecting.

Ms. Luccardi spoke with us at length about the process of filming this feature and what it takes to be an actor in this current age. Check it out below.

Go/Don't Go is currently available on streaming platforms and blu-ray / DVD.

Synopsis:

After an unknown cataclysm, Adam (Alex Knapp) is alone. The sole inhabitant of a vacant, unchanged world, or so he thinks. While attempting to stay grounded in the desolate landscape, visions come to him—the fateful night his best friend Kyle (Nore Davis) introduces him to the love of his life, K (Olivia Luccardi).

As Adam’s mental state starts to unravel, he is plagued by lingering questions and uncertain realities about his world. His grip on what’s left starts to slip away—sending him spiraling towards a series of unforeseen consequences and unexpected truths.

Actor, producer, and film distributor Han Soto spent some time with us to discuss his ventures and the role he plays in the third season of the now-Netflix exclusive Cobra Kai. How'd he get the role in one of the most important flashbacks of the series? How has covid affected the entertainment business? What advice does he have for those wanting to get into the industry? Check out our exclusive interview below.

Mr. Soto also runs a distribution label that handles my specialty, indie films. Given the current situation, we're all in, independent cinema has been a go-to as large studios have found themselves at the mercy of local and state governments. Check out Kamikaze Dog Fight's official site for more info on what films they're currently promoting.

This latest installment of the classic karate franchise sees the return of a number of familiar faces and gives us a deeper look into what made John Kreese (Martin Kove) one of the best villains of the 1980s. The third season of Cobra Kai is available to stream right now on Netflix. The series has been picked up for a fourth season.

Synopsis: With a new sensei at the helm of the Cobra Kai dojo, a three-way feud takes center stage. Old grudges — like Cobra Kai — never die.

The infamous Invisible Man from the 1897 story by H.G. Wells is indeed in the new and cringy 'Watch Dogs Legion.'

Was this a lost XBOX game from 2002?

Just a few of the numerous bugs and glitches we encountered during the first day of gameplay. Square Enix really wants you to pay full price for a game this.

Director and documentary filmmaker Scott Petersen sat down to talk to us at length about his newest project Hitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity. The doc follows a multi-continent journey of two friends in the early 1970s. Having traveled alone throughout a large portion of the globe myself, I can tell you that the experience is at once eye-opening, inspiring, and at times quite dangerous. Check out our interview below!

Hitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity is currently available on Amazon and will be coming to Tubi in the future.

Synopsis:

What started out as two young Kansas kids setting out to find themselves in late 1970, turned to disillusionment and danger. Photographer Ewert and writer Russell traveled across Europe experiencing the continent in Forrest Gump fashion — attending French President Charles De Gaulle’s memorial service at Notre Dame, meeting famed photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, tooling around Paris with writer James Jones (”From Here To Eternity”) in his convertible, hanging out with Dutch anarchist weed purveyors in Amsterdam and rubbing elbows with American diplomats in Brussels. Along the way, their car was stolen — twice — and they were almost arrested in Amsterdam. If they were looking for experiences, Ewert and Russell certainly found them.

2020 is a horror show on all its own. So, what better way to alleviate the stress it is causing than by enjoying blood-soaked horror sprinkled with comedy? You can do that as soon as this Friday thanks to Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers, a film made by the comedic actor, writer, and director Ryan Barton-Grimley. We spoke with Ryan about how this film came about and how it transitioned from something dark into something more lighthearted yet gory.

Hawk and Rev will be having a virtual screening this week at Dances with Films LA. Click here to get your tickets!

Synopsis:
Philip “HAWK” Hawkins doesn’t just dream about killing vampires… He eats, sleeps, drinks and freakin’ breaths it. After getting kicked out of the Army for staking a fellow soldier with a blunt two by four, Hawk almost dies of boredom working as a night security guard at a deserted warehouse in his hometown of Santa Muerte, California… USA. Just when it looks like all Hawk’s options in life have expired, filthy blood-sucking vampires appear and of course… Nobody freakin’ believes him! With his back up against the wall, his sweaty Karate Kid headband tied on tight, real tight, and hordes of blood-thirsty vampires closing in, Hawk enlists the help of the one person who kind of believes him… Revson “REV” McCabe, a dimwitted, vegan-pacifist groundskeeper. Together they join forces to save the whole entire freakin’ world. Well… At least their hometown anyway. (feature – horror/comedy) Runtime: 84 minutes

Eating mother fuckers!

Watch List is one of those films that pulls no punches when it comes to realism. For some, that's a great thing, like when watching a period piece or war drama. However, when the true-to-life aspects of a movie revolve around something like Philippine's President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs, it hits the viewer with the equivalent to brass knuckles covered in razor blades and dripping with lemon juice. There's the impact, the bleeding, then the sting.

This is not a bad thing by any stretch. It is, however, a challenge for an audience that may be in a comfort zone thanks to several paint-by-numbers crime dramas where there's always a silver lining, if not a happy ending. Coming away from this film, I was glad to have my expectations broken because the outcome reflected the very real situation these people have been facing for years. Alessandra de Rossi shines in the dual role of a loving mother and naive vigilante.

The gray area of morality abounds in Watch List, showing off all the pros and cons of walking the edge between being morally right and criminally wrong at the same time.

I was fortunate enough to speak to the film's director, Ben Rekhi, in-depth about this film and the subsequential social contract that forms between a filmmaker and the audience.

Watch List will have a virtual theatre release on August 21st and will be available via VOD on September 1st.

Synopsis:

After her husband is mysteriously killed in the drug wars of the Philippines, a widowed mother of three must confront her own darkness to protect her children from further harm.
