Interview: Kellan Lutz Talks Playing a Gangster in ‘Speed Kills’

Adapted from Arthur Harris’s book of the same name, “Speed Kills” is a look at the surreal life of millionaire cigarette boat king turned drug mule, Ben Aronoff, whose life was cut short by a hired hitman. It is not so much a cautionary tale as it is a Wolf of Wallstreet-like romp complete with champagne montages, fast boats, and beautiful women. Everything is larger than life. Travolta plays the lead and is joined by an all-star supporting cast: Jennifer Esposito, Kellan Lutz, James Remar, Tom Sizemore and Matthew Modine.

Interview: Lance Reddick on Going to a ‘Monster Party’

In “Monster Party,” friends Casper, Dodge, and Iris are thieves — and, they’re pretty darn good ones. They’ve been pulling small-time heists, earning enough money to get by, at least. But the stakes are raised when a gambling addiction puts Casper’s dad in a bad spot with the wrong people, and Casper needs the money to bail him out.

The trio decides to pull their biggest job yet to get the funds. The target? An ultra-rich family throwing a dinner party. The goal? All the cash they can grab from the safe while everyone is distracted. Things soon go wrong, however, when Dodge discovers the family’s dark secret — they’re all killers, and this is no regular dinner party at all, it’s a “Monster Party.”

Movie Review: ‘Halloween’

Those familiar with the Michael Myers films might be surprised to find that writer and director David Gordon Green’s 2018 “Halloween” is a direct sequel to the first film, largely disregarding — and at times poking fun at — the slew of sequels that spawned after John Carpenter’s original. This retcon of sorts is good news for horror fans, however, as the original is unarguably the best one and, therefore, the perfect jumping off point.

Movie Review: ‘First Man’

The space race and the resultant moon landing is a story that’s been told many times over. But, “First Man” isn’t so much the story of America beating the Soviets to the moon, as it is one man’s personal journey to get there. Starting in 1961 and carrying through to the Apollo mission in ‘69, director Damien Chazelle gives us a visually-stunning, emotional, not-quite biopic of American icon Neil Armstrong.

When we meet him, Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) is an “egghead” engineer whose distractions on the ground are keeping him from success in the skies. He has a series of near-fatal incidents culminating in a flight test in which he bounces off the earth’s atmosphere and has to pull some risky maneuvers to land safely. …

Movie Review: ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’

“Bad Times at the El Royale,” a film by writer-director Drew Goddard, is a highly-stylized trip through the ’60s, and, reflective of the decade itself, equal parts beauty and shocking violence.

The story follows a group of wayward travelers who arrive separately on the same afternoon at the El Royale hotel. The hotel is located in woodsy Lake Tahoe and straddles the California-Nevada border. Indeed, it’s split down the middle with a bold red line of demarcation, selling guests on the novelty of sleeping in one state or the other (California is going to cost you a bit more, be warned). This kitschiness made the hotel a hot spot for gambling and good-timin’ in the past, but by the time the guests arrive, it’s seen better days.
