Hell or High Water is a Western for 2016

Hell or High Water is a Western for 2016

Hell or High Water is new to C Spire Video on Demand this week. And it’s a film that’s already stirring up some Oscar buzz for its actors’ performances, story and impressive cinematography. Starring brothers Chris Pine and Ben Foster, the film follows the two on a Robin Hoodian journey of morally justified bank robberies. Standing in opposition to these two is none other than Jeff Bridges, who plays a Texas Ranger more deftly than that guy who played Walker back in 1993.

Set amongst the West Texas scrub, Hell or High Water is brings to mind the works of Cormac McCarthy to mind for the film’s rich portrayal of a hardscrabble characters attempting to squeak out a dry, dusty existence in a landscape ever harsh and foreboding. This film is reminiscent of others neo-westerns like In the Valley of Elah, Sicario, No Country for Old Men, and Traffic.

Kevin Spacey Delivers Purrrfect Performance In Nine Lives

Kevin Spacey Delivers Purrrfect Performance In Nine Lives

In 1959 Walt Disney unleashed The Shaggy Dog on America and the Human-Animal ‘Body Swap‘ trope was born. The formula calls for one or more characters to swap bodies with an animal. And when you have a well known actor swap bodies with a pet, you can be guaranteed two things.

  1. A film which can be marketed to both kids and adults ensuring as wide a possible audience as possible.
  2. Laughs like you’ve never seen before.

Nine Lives puts these theories to the test with gritty and determined performances by two Oscar winners, Kevin Spacey  and Christopher Walken. Mix in the miracle of modern CGI you’ll probaby find yourself slipping into a dream-state where you honestly believe Kevin Spacey is a cat. Seriously!

The Rock & Kevin Hart Do Hilarious Spy Stuff In Central Intelligence

The Rock & Kevin Hart Do Hilarious Spy Stuff In Central Intelligence

The pantheon of U.S. TV & Film is filled with crime fighting duos. This includes such standouts as Turner & Hooch, Cagney & Lacey,  Murtaugh & Riggs, Tango & Cash, Cates & Hammond, and the greatest crime duo ever to grace the earth, Crockett & Tubbs of Miami Vice fame.

But these stalwarts of the buddy-cop style now have some competition and it comes from arguably two of 2016’s most popular entertainers: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart. The Rock and Hart play Bob Stone and Calvin Joyner, respectively. And in Central Intelligence, Stone & Joyner team up to help break up an international espionage ring focused on compromising the U.S.’s top secret satellite system.

Film Synopsis: Bullied as a teen for being overweight, Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) shows up to his high school reunion looking fit and muscular. While there, he finds Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart), a fast-talking accountant who misses his glory days as a popular athlete. Stone is now a lethal CIA agent who needs Calvin’s number skills to help him save the compromised U.S. spy satellite system. Together, the former classmates encounter shootouts, espionage and double-crosses while trying to prevent worldwide chaos.

Central Intelligence is rated PG-13 for crude and suggestive humor, some nudity, action violence and brief strong language.
