Devil's Path







On a hiking trail, a popular cruising site for gay men, Noah (Stephen Twardokus) sits waiting, eyeing the men who walk by. He listens to a Walkman, one of the few indications – minus the absence of cell phones – that this film, “Devil’s Path,” is taking place at some point during the 1990s. A passerby, Patrick (JD Scalzo), catches his eye. In his haste to catch up, Noah bumps into two other hikers (Jon Gale and Michael Hampton), who seem more than a little upset by the disturbance.

After Noah initiates a conversation with Patrick, the two men continue down the trail, eventually coming upon a roped off area. A nearby sign, slapped with a campaign sticker proclaiming “Perot for President ’92,” warns of missing hikers, Brandon and Michael. As the two men begin to walk into the roped off section, a park ranger (Steve Callahan) stops them, calling their attention to the sign and warning them of, what is assumed to be, bear attacks. When the ranger is called away on his walkie-talkie, Noah and Patrick decide to ignore his warning and continue on anyway.

Patrick, who’s only looking for a hookup, eventually grows tired of Noah’s continual talk of love and decides it’s best the two part ways. Not wanting to be left alone on the trail in this part of the woods, Noah asks Patrick to wait while he goes to the bathroom. But Noah’s pee break takes too long. Going in search of Noah, Patrick sees a man, one of the two men that Noah previously bumped into, walking by with his hands covered in blood. He finds Noah laying on the side of the trail, a bloodied rock nearby. When the two hear the man returning with his partner, Noah and Patrick flee into the woods in search of an alternate way back. “Devil’s Path,” co-written by lead actor Twardokus and the film’s director Matthew Montgomery, follows the two men as they attempt to flee from their attackers.

As with most thrillers, “Devil’s Path” relies on some coincidental circumstances to drive the story; specifics can’t be gotten into for obvious reasons. Moments and events leave you wondering what the chances are that things would have played out exactly in that way or something would have been in exactly that spot. The script calls for the characters to do things that aren’t believable. Patrick does something at one point that really makes no sense, especially considering the character is an EMT. Twardokus and Montgomery attempt to explain it away, but the explanation is unbelievable. It didn’t seem likely that Patrick would have stuck around Noah that long before losing interest or have even allowed Noah to follow him off in the first place. Also, if this trail is in a national park why are the only people on it single men looking for a hookup? Shouldn’t there be some other hiking groups on at least the main path?

The characters aren’t likeable and, for the most part, the acting isn’t entirely convincing. Although Twardokus and Scalzo each do a good job of showing his character’s weakness – Noah has anxiety attacks and Patrick has asthma – neither actor sells his part. Twardokus is the weaker of the two. Noah is too timid at the start of the movie for his actions at the end to work.

Cinematographer Stephen Tringali doesn’t create a daunting or foreboding atmosphere out of the heavily wooded region the cast gets lost in (Ceiri Torjussen’s score attempts to provide one but is only slightly more successful). Colors are kept focused on those found in nature, mainly greens and browns. The supporting cast is clothed in neutral colors, mostly beige, while Noah and Patrick both wear red. A color which causes them to stand out against the foliage and make the viewer question why neither suggests removing their outer layer to better camouflage themselves from their pursuers. The color makes sense for the two characters thematically but it doesn’t make sense once they are on the run.

It isn’t hard to figure out that more might be going on than meets the eye in “Devil’s Path.” The camera frequently shoots close-ups of the actor’s reactions, implying that we are not dealing with particularly honest people. Astute viewers will probably be able to tell which direction the film is going even if the final destination isn’t exactly what was expected. Those who go with the flow and don’t attempt to figure things out might find the experience more enjoyable.

Released on DVD & VOD on March 5.

Captain Marvel






Director: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck Studio: Disney

Review: Captain Marvel

Marvel Cinematic Universe releases their first film featuring a female-lead character that will surpass the box-office revenue from several superhero films. MCU all started with 2008’s Iron Man and continues the timeline, telling stories of each of the Marvel characters before 2012’s the Avengers which later became an important setting. Like I said earlier, I’m a devotee to comic-book films but I can’t say all comic-books films are good like the mediocre “Iron Man 2” or “The Incredible Hulk.”

In “Captain Marvel,” Carol Danvers, a fighter pilot and a soon-to-be member of an elite Kree military unit called StarForce, becomes Captain Marvel after Earth encounters the biggest conflict between two alien planets.

As the story flows in the 1990s setting, “Captain Marvel” reaches a perfect height of bringing the action sequences and lovely performance of Brie Larson, who appeared in 2015’s Room for which she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and Kong: Skull Island, towards American audiences. Not only Larson, but I love how the filmmakers also use the Blockbuster Video setting as it seems to be more like flourishing back in time as one of company’s best franchise before the bankruptcy. It gives a similar taste and emotion as if Toys “R” Us are still around in the 1990s.

Back then, Blockbuster Video as well as Toys “R” Us were popular and still around until both companies went bankrupted. The only things people don’t have in 1990s are smart phones, iPads, and streaming services such as Netflix. These three don’t exist in their lively hoods when aging through 1980s and 1990s. Blockbuster and Toys “R” Us really delve deeply and heavily on childhoods.

I described the action sequences, the setting, and the character development of Larson as female “Captain America” as the entire course throughout the film serves as a familiarity of 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger.” I also admired on the direction from Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck as they take full commitment and dedication on helming this anticipating film with awesome stunts compared from seeing the trailer as well as the music from Pinar Toprak.

The main actor providing a supportive advices to is Jude Law who played as Yon-Rogg, Danvers’s mentor. The performance from Jude Law came out similarly like The Ancient One from 2016’s “Doctor Strange,” portrayed by Tilda Swinton. They both mentored the training protagonists but often made [somewhat] indirect threats toward their respective trainers. By the way, “Captain Marvel” is Jude Law’s first Marvel film while Robert Downey Jr., who played as 2009’s “Sherlock Holmes” in which Law co-starred with him, appeared as Iron Man starting in 2008.

Aside from Law, the supporting cast of Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, and “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor Lee Pace who plays as Ronan the Accuser. What is more surprising as that I met Gemma Chan at the press screening of “Crazy Rich Asians,” co-starring with Constance Wu and Henry Goldings, and really enjoyed chatting with her and her performance to both “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Captain Marvel.”

Also returning are Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in MCU, and Clark Gregg in which both are digitally-aged by the usage of CGI due to the 1990s setting. Recalling Gregg’s words from 2008’s Iron Man that the film “isn’t his first rodeo.” Gregg always pops and goes whatever the film served him. Although, the main question about Jackson’s Nick Fury role is ecstatic as the setting takes place before he loses an eye. And let’s not forget about the cameo appearance from the late Stan Lee as a heartwarming tribute.

The chemistry between Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson becomes and proves to be a greater reminiscent of Marty and Doc from “Back to the Future,” Marlin and Dory from “Finding Nemo,” and Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler from “Jurassic Park.”

As for everything, I can’t give out too much spoilers away but I will say this, “Captain Marvel” is a good movie for full-price of admission and maybe the easier, wise choice for a Spring Break movie outing. It’s not like a topsy-turvy environment or some kind of a crash-and-burn technique being orchestrated by filmmakers, it’s just a story that lives up the expectations for both teenagers and young adults.

Keep this in mind that Captain Marvel will return sooner in the forthcoming “Avengers: End Game” which is less than a month away (My answer is “End Game” will be in late April 2019 to be exact). Running time: 125 minutes

Captain Marvel





I’m at the point where superhero movies don’t really bother me; since they are just here to entertain us as a viewer, no life lessons can be found here.

"Captain Marvel" does what it’s supposed to do in bringing American audiences a new superhero to embrace, and it does so in giving Oscar winner Brie Larson (“The Room”),” a role all her own as the title character, who essentially shows up in the early 1990s, when Blockbuster Video was still a flourishing neighborhood American franchise.

“Captain Marvel” contains a deluge of inside jokes only the most discerning viewers will get. For instance, a tabby cat is named “Goose,” one of the leads from 1986’s blockbuster that was “Top Gun.”

Also woven into the story are glances at another space-involved flick when Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers glances at a video box cover of Philip Kaufman’s “The Right Stuff”, an Oscar-winning flick that was very popular in the early 1980s, especially when the home rental market was booming, segueing into the mid-1990s.

Mind you readers, streaming services were not even popular then at all. As a matter of fact, they did not even exist!

Returning to the Marvel universe is Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, who has been around since his first appearance at the end of Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man” in 2008. They somehow went into “Captain Marvel” and digitally manipulated him, making him look a tad bit younger.

“Captain Marvel” is also based in realism since the Blockbuster store had promotional items such as a standee promoting Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “True Lies,” one of the last few rentals to ever grace the shelf in a video store.

So readers know, prior to my writing I spent years managing an independently owned video store in Plano, TX (it was called American Video) prior to my school work here at Richland. I think that was one of the last titles I rented to customers, back in the day when helping customers was just part of the daily activities. .

Also of note is that “Captain Marvel” will return sooner than readers think, because she will have a significant role in “Avengers: Endgame,” set to grace screens in less than a month. (April 26 to be exact.)

Like the greatness that encapsulated 2014’s awesome “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Captain Marvel” acknowledges the Cree race, another part of verbage only known to comic book readers, as well as viewers of the first “Guardians of the Galaxy” entry.

Again, like I’ve said in the past, I cannot give away too much without spoiling it for others.

“Captain Marvel” keeps the Marvel brand intact, since as aforementioned, it delivers in virtually every single department.

“Captain Marvel,” for all intents and purposes is a giant flashback. The movie centers on Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, who is a member of their Cree race. She has dreams that she cannot recall, but shuffles them off as a past memory from a time long ago.

In order to keep and maintain her balance, she spars with Jude Law’s Yori Rogg, an ally she confides her problems and predicaments with.

This flick is just fun since it touches and delves into childhood from the 1980s and 1990s, all the while knowing its limitations in reality.

“Captain Marvel” is worth a full-price admission, just be warned to stay for the end credits, since there are two Easter eggs at the very end.

Ruben Brandt, Collector






Ruben Brandt (voiced by Iván Kamarás), an art therapist, has recurring nightmares featuring several works of famous artwork, among them Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus,” Andy Warhol’s “Double Elvis,” and Édouard Manet’s “Olympia.” Currently treating a trio of patients, all of them criminals, Brandt welcomes newcomer Mimi (voiced by Gabriella Hámori) to the group. Mimi is herself a criminal, a kleptomaniac who recently stole a piece from a museum. Her getaway, thwarted by a detective Mike Kowalski (voiced by Csaba «Kor» Márton), caused her to throw the piece into the river, forcing the detective to fetch the artifact over his criminal. Realizing that her doctor is just as troubled as his patients, Mimi proposes to the others – Bye-Bye Joe (Matt Devere), Membrano Bruno (Henry Grant), and Fernando (Christian Nielson Buckhold) – that they steal the pieces tormenting the doctor to help him overcome his nightmares. As the group, assumed to be a solo thief and soon known in the media as the Collector, continues to enrage the art world Kowalski is hot on their heels.

Writer / director Milorad Krstić creates a distinctive work with his animated film “Ruben Brandt, Collector.” The animation, reminiscent of the surrealist movement, looks like a combination of hand-drawn and computer imagery. No two characters look the same. Some have a fairly normal and realistic appearance to an extent but most do not. Faces are often unusually structured and oddly shaped with characters having too many eyes, an extra nose, or features where they shouldn’t be (eyes in their hair or on their hats). Similar to a lot of early animated work, think the Fleischer studio’s (famous for the Betty Boop and Popeye shorts) output of the 1920s and 1930s, Krstić’s movie has a lot going on. The background of many scenes are active with a flurry of gags, keeping the viewers eyes busy as the action unfolds on screen.

The film combines and pulls elements from many genres. Brandt’s nightmares take on the tone of a horror movie, complete with the overbearing score you’d hear in most of those films. A train ride takes a horrific turn when characters from famous pieces attempt to drag Brandt off the train. At one point, Botticelli’s Venus transforms into an Ursula-like octopus that attacks him during a visit to an art museum. The story takes on a heist / action movie theme as Brandt and his patients attempt to steal the works of art, driving the story to its finale via car chase. Elements of film noir are scattered throughout, most apparent in the lighting of some scenes which use the exaggerated contrast and shadows of that genre. As it does with works of art and film, “Ruben Brandt, Collector” also toys with the music selections. Night club scenes – also oddly animated, the singer’s lips don’t move but the shadow of her lips do – feature sultry versions of pop songs by artists like Britney Spears while classical music (Mozart) is also thrown into the mix.

For a film like Milorad Krstić’s “Ruben Brandt, Collector,” it’s probably best that viewers don’t go in completely cold to the experience. An overview of art, music, and film history – pop culture in general – would probably increase the enjoyment of an initial viewing, though it’s not necessarily a prerequisite for one. “Ruben Brandt, Collector” is enjoyable in its own right, a fun animated movie.
