Duchovny's Aquarius character is named Hodiak, which does not roll off the tongue very well and sounds more like Zodiac or Kodiak whenever anyone addresses him.

Official Site:
Plot: A Scottish teenager is escorted across the American West by a bounty hunter. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/05/05/iffboston-2015-review-slow-west/

Review:

Kodi Smit-McPhee stars as Jay Cavendish, a Scottish teenager who has found himself trekking the American West all by his lonesome. He is trying to track down the love of his life, Rose Ross (Caren Pistorius). Rose fled Scotland with her father, John (Rory McCann, yarp), after he causes a tragic accident. Now, the two are trying to live a quiet life in a brand new cabin out in the middle of nowhere, where no one knows who they are...[more]...

The Cobbler



The-cobbler-final

Directed by: Tom McCarthy
Written by: Tom McCarthy
Cast: Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi, Clifford Smith, Melonie Diaz, Ellen Barkin
Studio:
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot: A New York cobbler discovers that by wearing the shoes he worked on, he can become his customers. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/22/movie-review-the-cobbler/

Review:

There was time when I would consider myself an Adam Sandler fan. Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore were on permanent replay, while The Wedding Singer and Big Daddy snuck in a surprising amount of heart. Looking at his recent work, I struggle with whether I was just the right age to find his immature sense of humor funny, or if Adam Sandler’s sense of humor just happened to age like old milk. Sandler still gets in an impressive performance every now and then, but it is usually only when working with a director or actors outside of his usual circle of friends. Thomas McCarthy definitely fits that bill. His unusually slow paced dramedies The Station Agent and Win Win were some of the bigger surprises to come out of cinema in years. It seems though that McCarthy has accidentally made a regular Adam Sandler movie...[more]...

The Salvation

Directed by: Kristian Levring
Written by: Kristian Levring
Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Morgan, Jonathan Pryce, Eric Cantona
Studio: Zentropa Productions
Genre: Drama, Western
Official Site:
Plot: A Danish soldier trying to set up a new life in America seeks revenge for the murders of his wife and child. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/20/movie-review-the-salvation/

Review:

I see genres (and all subsets of subgenres) as experimentations on themes of the human condition. Each movie does their part to add to or prove wrong what came before it. One day, each of these genres will have a “concluding paragraph,” a film that satisfies all the themes and all the experimentations and finally come up with something concrete. So far, and this is arguable, I think there is only one subgenre that has truly found that conclusion: Westerns. And the conclusion is Unforgiven. Ever since then, the Western has had a rough go of it with a lot of homage obsessed modern attempts. Thankfully, a few still live up to the experiment. Kevin Costner’s Open Range comes to mind as does the Australian Proposition. The Salvation just joined their ranks...[more]...

You propose that all genres, as they are artistic discussions, will have a conclusive statement at some point. I find that proposition extremely interesting. And, I shall have to keep my eyes open.

Oddly enough, the Watchmen comicbook might have been that conclusive statement for awhile in the superhero genre. However, the movie had only so much of an effect. However, the printed superhero tradition and the current cinematic tradition might be two different animals.

Predestination



Predestination-poster-hawke

Directed by: Michael Spierig
Written by: Michael Spierig
Cast: Ethan Hawke
Studio: Sony Pictures
Genre: Crime, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: A young woman is recruited by a time traveling secret agent. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/07/movie-review-predestination/

Review:

Do not be mistaken by the “man with a gun going toward something so impossible only he could stop it” movie poster. Predestination is not a run and gun kind of movie, another in a long line of modest budget thriller starring a well-known actor (going all the way back to Taken). It is a decade-spanning character piece posing as a slow burn thriller, and it is based on a classic Robert Heinlein short story “-All You Zombies-.” It stars Ethan Hawke as an unnamed temporal agent working for a secret agency who has been circling back and forth through time trying to stop a terrorist. Hawke’s ping-ponging between lead actor and character actor suits him well here turning the same character for all intents and purposes into completely separate characters, varied by time. He reteams with his Daybreakers directors Michael and Peter Spierig. Their genre pedigree allows them to create a beautiful looking and well-conceived time travel continuity resembling an even more knotted version of the Mobius strip while ever so slightly exiting that genre comfort zone with keen questions of identity...[more]...

The Voices



Voices_poster

Directed by: Marjane Satrapi
Written by: Michael Perry
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, Jacki Weaver
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A seemingly mild-mannered factory worker receives evil messages from his talking pets. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/04/movie-review-the-voices/

Review:

If there was anyone I thought was in dire need of their own “McConnaissance,” it was Ryan Reynolds. I’m sure many would line up to disagree with me, but between Buried, The Nines, Chaos Theory, Fireflies in the Garden, and a few other lesser seen work there is plenty of potential. I thought Reynolds would be in the middle of one right now. He had set up quite a few projects with auteur filmmakers. Unfortunately, Atom Egoyan’s The Captive failed to compel, and I am afraid The Voices will do the same...[more]...

Studio: Radius TWC
Genre: Action
Official Site:
Plot: A woman forced into sexual slavery fights for her life. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/01/movie-review-everly/

Review:

No one could question Joe Lynch’s dedication to the B-movie concept. He paints with blood, bullets, and babes. He hits all the line items from a checklist bound to make the most casual viewers stand up and go “AWESOME!” Look no further than his LARP-ers turned bona fide demon hunters flick, Knights of Badassdom. Like Knights…, Lynch creates something that only seems like half a movie though...[more]...

Maps to the Stars



Mtts-new-poster-gallery

Directed by: David Cronenberg
Written by: David Cronenberg
Cast: Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Sarah Gadon
Studio:
Genre: Horror, Independent
Official Site:
Plot: A girl with a secret throws a number of Hollywood players into chaos

Review:

So, the long lost hidden family secret.The aging starlet in her mother's shadow. A rising star already too egotistical to deal with. A new age guru who is mostly a hyporcrite. The limo driver who really wants to write and act. David Cronenberg parades a number of Hollywood satircal archetypes through a barrage of anti-Hollywood cliches. It is only his competence of tone and visuals that makes any of this worth watching. It is otherwise void of new ideas.

Wild Card



Wild-card-poster-debut

Directed by: Simon West
Written by: William Goldman
Cast: Jason Statham, Sofia Vergara, Milo Ventimiglia, Anne Heche, Max Casella, Hope Davis, Stanley Tucci
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A security expert looks for his way out of Vegas

Review:

WIld Card is not what you think it is going to be. Yes, it is a Jason Statham cheapie action thriller with some very arobatic action scenes, but there is more to it. A very vague attempt to be something more.Something better.I can appreciate that. I really can. There is a lot of time between fight scenes that usually have Statham acting self-depricating about his own toughness, playing cards trying to make enough bank to make a break for it, taking a young millionaire who wants to toughen up under his wing. It is definitely one of Statham's better performances, requiring him to actually do some acting. The guy has the kind of screen presence where he can play a more emotionally complicated kind of tough guy than we are used to seeing in these kind of movies.

The Wolf of Wall Street



Wolf-of-wall-street-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Terence Winter
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: Rise and fall of a wall street money man.

Review:

So many of Scorsese movies are about the rise and fall. Enter a confident go-getter who knows how to work the system.He climbs the ladder quick and starts cutting corners when he thinks he can get away with it until they hemorrage money and power at quicksand speed. DiCaprio plays his most over the top character yet, as does pretty much everyone involved in the movie, to a fault. It also helps make it all the more funny, the extra push After Hours was missing.

Cast: Chloe Moretz, Jude Law, Richard Griffiths, Emily Mortimer, Ray Winstone, Sacha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee, Ben Kingsley, Asa Butterfield
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Adventure, Family
Official Site: www.hugomovie.com
Plot: An orphan living in a train station tries to finish his father's final project.

Review:

Scorsese? A PG rated movie? Really?

Well, guess what, it was awesome. Seriously. It is Scorsese's love letter to film, something to reinvigorate the cinephile cynics casting Ben Kingsley as legendary filmmaker, George Melies, now forced to sell mechanical trinkets in a train station store. It is a surprisingly adventurous family flick. Emotionally compelling and tastefully beautiful and so many things that family movies forget nowadays.

Shutter Island



Shutter-island-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese

Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Max Von Sydow, Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson, John Carroll Lynch, Jackie Earle Haley
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Thriller
Official Site: www.shutterisland.com
Plot: A detective investigates a disappearance at a mental institution

Review:

I feel like after the dust settled and the Oscars were won, The Departed had a lot of detractors, many of whom seemed annoyed that it was Scorsese's most mainstream and by extension the most popular. Shutter Island is probably more deserving of the criticism that Scorsese phoning it in a bit and making something more traditional.Shutter Island was a fairly run of the mill thriller with the kind of twsit ending that is no longer very original anymore. The saving grace here though is Leonardo DiCaprio, who's slow descent into madness is fantastic and nuanced, plus one particular flashback being possibly one of the greatest scenes DiCaprio has ever delivered and an amazing final bit of dialog, both of which elevate it from what could have been a pretty uninspired flick.

The Departed

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: William Monahan
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, Ray Winstone, Vera Farmiga, Anthony Anderson, Alec Baldwin
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Thriller
Official Site: www.thedeparted.com
Plot: A cop undercover as a gangster. A gangster undercover as a cop.

Review:

A remake of the Japanese Infernal Affairs and partly inspired by real life Boston gangster, Whity Bulger. It stars an all-star cast (DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, and Jack Nicholson). The cast do some of their best work, dropping R's all over the place, in what Scorsese considers (probably before Shutter Island) to be his only movie with an actual story. It is true, I guess, and it is weird to think of it as a criticism or some kind or justification for why it isn't an instant Scorsese classic. But it kind of is an instanct classic. Or at least really good. Exceptionally thrilling, occasionally funny, with plenty of compelling performances to go around.

Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Biography, Drama
Official Site: www.aviatormovie.com
Plot: The life of Howard Hughes

Review:

DiCaprio and Scorsese's second outing was much better than their first attempt. Telling the story of Howard Hughes, millionaire/engineer/filmmaker/you guessed it, aviator. Hughes was known publcily for being an adventurer. Stan Lee has gone on record saying that Tony Stark was originally inspired by the man, but Scorsese's historical character piece pulls back the curtain. He paints Hughes as an unstable and psychologically tortured individual with a parade of supporting actors playing actors.

Gangs Of New York

Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Liam Neeson, Cameron Diaz, Pete Postlethwaite, Henry Thomas
Studio: Miramax Films
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site: gangsofnewyork.com
Plot: An Irish man sets out for vengeance against the man who killed his father.

Review:

This gangland epic takes on a fantasy sword-and-sandal like quality in the New York of the 1860s. Leonardo DiCaprio begins his his partnership with Scorsese playing the son of an Irish immigrant who dared to stand up against neighborhood tough guy, Bill the Butcher (played by an awesomely theatrical Daniel Day-Lewis). 20 years after the death of his father, DiCaprio has returned to get vengeance on Bill, first by infiltrating his organization and then starting a rebellion against him. The production values are high and impressive, but besides Day-Lewis' turn, the performances are pretty lacking. All these details weigh down Scorsese's bigger picture the coming-of-age growing pains of America's greatest city, New York.

Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A graveyard shift EMTsuffering from insomnia is haunted by the ones he couldn't save

Review:

A Scorsese greatest hits. A Taxi Driver spiral into madness. An After Hours madcap adventure. An insightful Goodfellas voiceover. A sly injection of dark humor a la King of Comedy. A Mean Streets/Who's That Knocking at My Door guilt ridden thematic angle. It probably shouldn't work as well as it does (especially since there is a sneaking suspicion of Scoresese aping Tarantino) and objectively it might not be, but I totally dig it.

Plot: The life story of the 14th Dalai Lama

Review:

NOt going to lie. When I heard the premise, I thought this doesn't sound super riveting. But I was wrong. This was pretty damn good, full of actors I have never seen before (apparently many are real relatives of the Dalai Lama). It lacks a lot of mysticism, insight, and nonconventional dream-like scenarios, but that is sort of what makes it great. The instinct would be to jump on those things, but by ignoring them and sticking more to the conventional and routine actually makes it more special. The simplicity and politics behind the Dalai Lama just being nice are more fascinating than you could think possible.

Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: The rise and fall of the mafia's version of Las Vegas.

Review:

I'm going to break a few hearts with this one. I'm not a big fan of this movie. DeNiro seems like he is sleepwalking though the movie, while Pesci takes his Goodfellas characters and revs him up to full annoying douche mode. AS we meet these gangsters they are pretty much already stabbing each other in the back fighting over the power and prominence that they have already collected. Vegas was an epilogue, a post script, and at this point I am already rooting for their downfall, so it doesn't really feel that tragic. It is still good though, mainly because it is Scorsese and he really knows how to put a movie together.

Plus it is so annoyingly long.

Genre: Period, Drama

Plot: An upper crust gentlement in 19th century New York struggles with his desires and the high scoiety expectations.

Review:

Lies. Sex. Guilt. The Scorsese checklist is there, but it is yet another stinker from Marty. Armed with one of the finest actors possibly ever, Daniel Day-Lewis, Scorsese delivers a long, plodding melodrama overflowing with verbose Olde English stle dialog that just seems to sap all the emotion out of every scene. There is also literally no action what to speak of. Not explosions and car chases, l;iterally nothing but people talking about the things they want to do, wish they could do, but can't do unless they upset the hoighty toighty bullshitty lifestyle of the Buzzkillingtons. I hate this movie.

Studio: Universal
Genre: Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A convicted rapist gets out of prison and torments his court appointed lawyer for not doing more during his case.

Review:

This is a rare misstep for Martin Scorsese. Robert DeNiro does a psychotic Foghorn Leghorn impression while Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange sort of phone it in. It is probably one of Scorsese's more mainstream movies, and it shows. He is sort of going by the numbers thriller with only a single moment of brilliance: a scene scripted as a violent one morphed into a creepy slow-burn conversation between DeNiro's convict posing as a teacher and Nolte's teenaged daughter (played by Juliette Lewis).
