Hulu in September: Here’s Everything Coming and Going

  • The Wrap
Hulu is out with its list of new and expiring content for the month of September, and what better way to beat the back-to-school blues than with a whole bunch of binge-watching.

Among the new goodies coming next month is the 12th episode and season finale of horror anthology series “Into the Dark.” Out Sept. 6, the finale is called “Pure,” and is described as a female coming-of-age horror story in which a group of teenage girls perform a secret ritual at a “Purity Retreat.” When one of them begins to see a “supernatural entity,” a scary question is posed: “What is more dangerous: the demon they’ve unleashed, or the pressure to conform to their fathers’ expectations?” Scary indeed!

The Hulu original documentary “Untouchable” will be released on Sept. 2, described as “the inside story of the meteoric rise and shocking fall of movie titan Harvey Weinstein.” Directed by Ursula Macfarlane,

What’s Coming to Hulu in September 2019

  • Variety
If the Summer Scaries are beginning to creep in, it may be time to start binging a new show to distract yourself from the impending end of vacation season. Luckily, Hulu is among the streaming services with a fresh slate of new content coming next month.

Beginning Sept. 1, you’ll be able to stream older franchise favorites, including the first three “Ocean’s Eleven” movies, all four “Lethal Weapons” films and all three installments of “The Matrix.”

There are other options if you’re in the mood to catch up on the latest TV. Check in with the Johnson family in the sixth season of “black-ish,” or get your tissues ready for the emotional fourth season of “This is Us,” both available on the streamer Sept. 25. And if you’re looking for a laugh from a comedy, new seasons of “American Dad,” Bob’s Burgers,” “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons

’2020: Doomsday’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Andy Gates, Tamzin Brown, Dave Vescio, Michael O’Hare, Jonathan Eisley | Written and Directed by Patrick O’Bell

The Polaris Society is set to free their earthly bodies and travel the stars. Their leader, Elyon, promises eternity and all everyone has to do is die. Cult members, Spencer and Ursa are having none of that and go on the run. Elyon is going to save their souls, even if he has to kill them.

2020: Doomsday sets the right tone from the first second we’re exposed to grainy, Super8 style footage that can’t help but be eerie as Hell. Whatever we’re forced to watch, with the adults and children with their faces whited out and the strange jerky motion, you get the feeling we’re about to watch something like The Strangers meets a very well done Creepypasta. Unfortunately, it isn’t very good.

Review: 'Criminal Activities' Starring John Travolta, Michael Pitt, Christopher Abbott, And Dan Stevens

Criminal Activities” is yet another one of those “Clueless regular folks who get into deep criminal shit struggle to come out of the situation alive” dark comedies that were very popular during the post-Tarantino late '90s. Examples like “Suicide Kings” and “Very Bad Things” are just two titles that come to mind after a maximum of five seconds of brainstorming. Right down to its generic title, “Criminal Activities” doesn’t add anything new to the formula, and you can probably predict every single one of its story beats, including the wholly unnecessary twist ending, but I had fun with it nevertheless. This gruesome dark comedy is the feature directorial debut of Jackie Earl Haley, veteran portrayer of some of the creepiest characters from Hollywood’s last decade. Robert Lowell, the American poet who died in 1977, wrote the screenplay decades ago, and Haley updated it and changed the location from Detroit to Cleveland,

Criminal Activities | Review

Subliminal Criminal: Haley’s Debut Feloniously Familiar

There’s a certain amount of smarmy appeal to justify Jackie Earle Haley’s attraction to taking on Criminal Activities, the actor’s first stint as director. Updating a script written by Robert Lowell (a man who has been deceased since 1977), Haley updates the action to modern day Cleveland, but this mob affiliated kidnap caper feels exactly like direct-to-video fodder from the mid to late 90’s modeling snappy, impressionistic dialogue around loopy bits of violence and pronounced plot twists, a common template following the success of Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994). An intriguing ensemble cast heightens a certain interest in the film’s rudimentary wiles, but exaggerated characterizations distract from an inevitable plot twist only unexpected because it’s not particularly notable.

'Pulp Fiction' spawn: The best and worst of the Tarantino clones that followed

'Pulp Fiction' spawn: The best and worst of the Tarantino clones that followed
When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere

Let’s Watch a Supercut of Every Christopher Walken Dance Scene

I didn’t know Christopher Walken had danced in so many movies but it’s a good thing he has otherwise we wouldn’t have this great supercut to show you. He had the moves in Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice video [watch it here] but put them all together with his movies and it’s something special.

Fyi: Walken initially trained as a musical theater dancer at the Washington Dance Studio.

‘The Bag Man’ Review: Faux Prada, Fake Tarantino

It’s been two decades since Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction crashed the zeitgeist and sent screenwriters everywhere rushing to their keyboards to create quirky criminals with the gift of gab. The best ones (In Bruges, Suicide Kings, Go) quickly form their own identity, but far too many seem content trying to mash together dark comedy and sharp violence and then calling it a day. Barely a month goes by without some new Tarantino-esque crime thriller hitting screens, and while it’s slowed down a bit recently the flow hasn’t stopped. Exhibit C for 2014… The Bag Man. Jack (John Cusack) is hired by a crime boss named Dragna (Robert De Niro) to acquire a particular bag and then wait at a motel for pick-up and payoff. The most important part of the task? Do not, under any circumstances, look in the bag. Jack struggles to resist the urge, but the waiting game is complicated by a

'Suburgatory's' Jeremy Sisto loves his kids and 'The Deer Hunter'

On ABC's Wednesday sitcom "Suburgatory," which launched a new season in January, Jeremy Sisto plays George Altman, an architect and single father of a teen daughter (Jane Levy) who moves to the suburbs to give her a better life. He discovers life there is different, but whether it's better is a work in progress.

In real life, Sisto is a 39-year-old father of two: daughter Charlie and baby son Bastian. He got married to wife Addie a few months after his daughter was born, but Sisto has no regrets about taking the plunge.

"I love my family," he tells Zap2it. "I have a great wife. It took me a while to figure that out and commit, but now I'm really happy I did. She's a human being, and we're committed to each other. It's a nice thing. The kids are just amazing. It's a different level."

Great Premise Wasted; 5 Great Stories That Deserved Better Movies

Where others may diagnose death for a failed film, a certain cinematic surgeon endeavors to breathe new life into moribund movies through extreme and invasive procedures. Whether it be rescuing invaluable elements from train wrecks for transplant, identifying cause of symptoms or resurrecting doomed patients with wholesale rewrites, Cinematic Surgery aims to show that even the most tragic or insolvable cases can be saved in the operating/editing room.

Such is the current culture in the filmmaking world that the very notion of suggesting ‘remake’ is considered sacrilege, a soul selling throw down to the cynical moneymakers bleeding dry a stable of beloved movies of the past in pursuit of sales through nostalgia and association, all to the detriment of goodwill and creativity. But the problem isn’t in the concept, it’s in the choices.

On occasion, there has been a film put out that sells itself through the strength of its tantalizing premise,

Exclusive: Henry Thomas Talks The Last Ride
Henry Thomas discusses playing music icon Hank Williams in The Last Ride, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD

Henry Thomas captured America's heart as Elliott in the 1982 classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and he hasn't stopped working since. He starred in one of my personal childhood favorites, Cloak and Dagger, and in notable films such as Valmont, Legends of the Fall, Suicide Kings, All The Pretty Horses, Gangs of New York, Dear John, and many more. The actor returns to play music icon Hank Williams in The Last Ride, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD. Set just days before the country singer passed away, this drama is based on the true story of a young man (Jesse James) hired to drive Hank to a series of concerts over the New Year's Eve holiday, and the bond that formed between these very different men.

A Walken Legend: Christopher’s Most Memorable Performances

He’s one of cinemas most intense performers and one of my all-time favourite movie icons, but Oscar-winner Christopher Walken has more in his locker than a menacing thousand-yard stare and gravity-defying hair-do. This week sees the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Martin McDonagh’s brilliant black comedy, Seven Psychopaths, in which Walken steals the show from under the nose of Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, as a loveable dog-napping petty crook, devoted pal and husband.

Over his 60 year career, which currently features over 12o credits, he’s featured in superhero blockbuster Batman Returns, gothic horror Sleepy Hollow; taken on suave British super spy 007 in A View To A Kill; chased rodents and marsupials in family favourites, Mousehunt and Kangaroo Jack, and tripped the light fantastic in Fatboy Slim’s memorable music video for Weapon Of Choice. Now Thn has picked out some of our favourite, and
