Black Limousine

A better ride than expected.


Drama

Rod Lott
Composer Jack McKenzie (David Arquette, Scream 4) is not at his best. His career has tanked due to sobriety issues stemming from an auto accident that killed one of his two children with his now ex-wife. To clear his mind and pay the bills, he takes a gig as a limo driver.

Michael / Silver Tongues

Two great films, if you can take them.


Drama

Rod Lott
My wife barely can stand — and sometimes refuses — to watch TV shows like The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm because they make her too nervous. Therefore, she would hate Michael and Silver Tongues, two new-to-DVD entries in discomfort cinema. I recommend them both, while acknowledging they are far from the easiest of watches.

Fablecar — Fablecar


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Yukon’s Fablecar seems to have emerged from whatever year the Pixies and U2 would have crossed paths with David Bowie. It’s a big, ambitious, self-titled debut, one that stands tall more often than falling flat. Even the missteps are forgivable, as it’s refreshing to hear a young band take a swing at something wholly original.

House of Dark Shadows / Night of Dark Shadows

Double up with earlier big-screen 'Shadows.'


Horror

Rod Lott
Those who liked Tim Burton's misunderstood Dark Shadows movie may be curious about exploring the long-running TV soap opera on which it was based. I understand, but instead would point them first in the direction of the 1970 and 1971 feature films, House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows.

Frankenstein

A rather Randy version of the monstrous classic.


Horror

Rod Lott
Perhaps best known for being the bad guy of the early '90s blockbusters Patriot Games and Sleeping with the Enemy, Patrick Bergin must be the king of literary adaptation also-rans. He played Robin Hood in 1991 film that was denied a theatrical release because Kevin Costner's Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves sewed that all up. He's played Dracula … but in a made-for-TV movie, not a Francis Ford Coppola spectacle.

V/H/S

Be kind, rewind ... or die.


Horror

Rod Lott
My problem with most found-footage films is that there's not much to them. Most can be described legitimately as an hour of buildup for one scene of payoff. When you shorten the stories, however, as is done in the horror anthology V/H/S, you have a handful of payoffs without all that pesky incidental padding.

The Frozen

Watch this winter thriller from the comfort of a toasty couch.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Not to be confused with Adam Green's Frozen, snowbound terrors and all, Andrew Hyatt's The Frozen follows couple Mike (Seth David Mitchell) and Emma (Brit Morgan, True Blood’s werewolf Debbie Pelt) into the woods for a winter camping trip.

Hope Springs

And yet it also falls flat.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Meryl Streep is in a rut — not the actress, who's arguably still atop her game in her fifth decade of screen stardom, but the character she plays in Hope Springs. Long married to frowny sad sack Arnold (Lincoln's Tommy Lee Jones, not exactly stretching), Kay feels more like a roommate than a wife. They don't even share a bedroom any more.
