A new film about the FBI's assassination of Black Panther Fred Hampton and the FBI informant who betrayed the trust of the Black Panther is being told in JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH starring Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield. Kaluuya delivers a powerful performance as Hampton in the new preview. Watch.
Nothing irks me more than bad acting, and PAYDIRT is full of it, mostly coming from the female characters who are only there to be objectified. Starring Luke Goss (THE HARD WAY, HELLBOY II, BLADE II) and Val Kilmer (THE DOORS, HEAT, TOMBSTONE), the film from writer/directer Christian Sesma is rife with bad dialogue, an unwatchable performance by Kilmer and a perpetuation of the Latino stereotype.
In his first leading role, Bobby Soto stars with Shia LaBeouf in David Ayer's (SUICIDE SQUAD, END OF WATCH) THE TAX COLLECTOR, a crime thriller set in the hood of Los Angeles. Shia plays a character named Creeper, and adopts a Chicano accent for the role of an enforcer along with Bobby's "David" character. Watch below what Soto had to say about working with the quirky actor, and his interesting story of how he met the director and coming from the same barrio.
Rocsi Diaz cohosts with "The Miz" on USA's "Cannonball" competition show. The Emmy Award-winning television host tells CineMovie she calls herself the "ringmaster" when it comes to reigning in WWE star Mike "The Miz" Mizanin and comedian Simon Gibson on the show. She also tells us she wouldn't mind sliding down one of those massive slides without the obstacles, of course.
David Ayer (SUICIDE SQUAD, FURY) takes to the streets of Los Angeles once again for THE TAX COLLECTOR starring Bobby Soto, Shia LaBeouf and George Lopez. The violent crime thriller has the B-movie vibe while the story is cliché from start to end. You get the impression the END OF WATCH and HARSH TIMES writer/director dug up this one up from his archives because it feels dated like one of those 70s Mexploitation films. Fans of that sub genre may enjoy this one.
Disney has finally decided to send MULAN to Disney+ in addition to a theatrical release in limited markets where COVID-19 has not shut down movie theaters on September 4.
