Everyone has a bad day once in a while, right? Now, imagine having your worst day ever.

That’s the basic premise of the new action-comedy feature film “Monday,” starring actor Jamie H. Jung as a slacker whose day goes from bad to worse to holy sh*t.

After losing both his job and his girlfriend, Jim (Jung) thinks that he’s hit rock bottom but quickly realizes that his problems are only beginning. With the help of his best friend, Jim must fend off rivaling drug cartels and assassins as he tries to get his life back on track and stay alive in the process.

“Monday” will close out the 14th annual HollyShorts Film Festival in Los Angeles and comes from rising director Alejandro Montoya Marin.

Based on Marin’s short film of the same name, the project transformed into the feature length film as part of famed director Robert Rodriguez’s filmmaking contest and television docu-series “Rebel Without A Crew: The Series.” Marin, and four others, were tasked with creating feature films in 14 days with a budget of $7,000 – the same conditions as Rodriguez when he made his breakout film “El...

It was a hometown welcome for Hollywood-based actress Tammy Kaitz who went back to Denver to shoot the new comedy feature film, “Man Camp.”

Tammy was lured back to Colorado by the role of Theresa, a smart and sassy mother of three grown children who catch their mom off-guard at their family cabin with her secret fiancé, portrayed by Pete Gardner of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” fame. Her sons decide to put their mom’s new beau to the test to see if he’s good enough to join their Mann family.

Directed by Nate Bakke, the film also stars Erik Stocklin along with Daniel Cummings and Scott Kruse, who both co-wrote and co-produced the picture.

Having never shot a film project in her hometown, Tammy jumped at the chance. She explains, “What a full circle moment to come back to Denver, where our families and even our sons now live, to work as an actor on a terrifically funny feature film!”

Tammy started her career on the community stages in Denver and earned a B.A. in Theatre from the University of Colorado Boulder. Afterwards, she made her way to London, where she studied at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic...

THIS IS A REPOST OF AN ARTICLE THAT I ALREADY WROTE ON A DIFFERENT CLUB

This is a film that has been out for a while but I'm just now getting around to doing a full article review of it because I've been really busy, stressed, and emotionally drained for a while and all of that has been keeping me from reviewing it. This musical was a big deal when the trailers came out and when the movie finally came out for various reasons. It was Zac Efron's first musical movie since his days in High School Musical and Hairspray, it had freaking Hugh Jackman who always draws in a crowd, it was a brand new musical that got people excited because it was helping to bring back traditional musical movies that weren't in animation or based off an already existing Broadway show, and just looked visually stunning. However, because this was based off the historical figure, P.T. Barnum, who has been said to be a horrible human being, and was being portrayed in a positive light like something Barnum would write about himself, there was some backlash. That's definitely the main criticism that critics have that make the overall reviews of the film from critics mixed....

Nyle Lynn
New Yorkers love a good pizza. It’s a classic taste of the city -- and so are the owners of the local pizzeria shops. But, what happens when you get a well-intentioned younger generation moving into the neighborhood and looking for a change?

This culture clash is the subject of the indie short film “The Kids Menu,” pitting a young mother (Nyle Lynn) on a mission to get a kids-friendly menu against a steadfast, traditional pizzeria owner ("Soprano's" favorite Vincent Pastore).

Directed by Paul Borghese and penned by Richard Vetere, the film has become a stand-out on the festival circuit, recently screening at the SOHO Int’l Film Festival and heading to the Jersey Shore Film Festival later this summer.

"The Kids Menu" has also been racking up awards for both of its stars, with Nyle taking home ‘Best Actress’ from LA Shorts Awards, Los Angeles Film Awards, London Independent Film Awards, NYC Indie Film Awards and New York Film Awards; and Vincent earning the Spirit of New York Award at the Big Apple Film Festival.

Isabella Sanchez
Expecting parents often worry about their unborn child and hope that their new baby will arrive happy and healthy.

Typically, they’re not worried about what color their newborn will be upon entering the world. But, that is exactly the complex situation presented in Will McFadden's new indie feature film, ‘Doubting Thomas,’ inspired by true events.

White couple, Jen (Sarah Butler) and Tom (McFadden), are excited to welcome their new baby boy into the world, there's just one unexpected problem -- the boy is black. As suspicion is raised that family friend Ron (Jamie Hector) might be the boy’s biological father, will the truth be revealed too late to save this new fragile family?

Actress Isabella Sanchez enters the storyline as Ron’s love interest, Gianna, who is also alarmed over his possible indiscretion.

Fans might recognize Isabella from her appearances on the Netflix series “Girlboss,” NBC’s sitcom “Marlon,” and the award-winning indie film, “The Custom Mary.” And, keep your eyes peeled for her coming soon in the indie film “Compton’s Finest,” about two Detectives on the hunt for a...

There's a Teen Titans Go! film coming out called Teen Titans Go! to the Movies. A lot of people are dreading the film, but I think that tons of people should check out the film.

1. The Teen Titans will finally be on the big screen.

There have been some Teen Titans films. However those films were direct to DVD, not theatrical. Robin has been on the big screen various times and Cyborg was in the Justice League film, but this is Raven, Starfire, and Beast Boy's first theatrical film.

2. Slade will be the villain.

Slade is the Teen Titans' main villain and a recurring antagonist to Batman. He's become one of DC's greatest villains so having him be the main villain of a theatrical film is awesome!

3. Nicolas Cage is voicing Superman.

Nicolas Cage tried to play Superman in a film, but the film got cancelled. Thankfully Mr. Cage will finally get to play Superman. Nicolas Cage as Superman is a very creative casting choice so I'm excited to hear his version of Superman.

Batman Ninja is a 2018 Batman film. My review of the film is about the film's English dub.

The film is about Batman getting sent to Japan's past. He teams up with Catwoman and his regular helpers to stop the Joker. The Joker is being aided by Gorilla Grodd, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, the Penguin, Poison Ivy, and Deathstroke. Batman realizes that the people of Japan's past consider Batman to be a prophecy hero so Batman tries to live up to the hype.

The film's plot is pretty interesting and unique. Although having a film that's about Batman and Joker's rivalry is very typical nearly every other element of the plot is one of a kind. The film should of been longer, because it has so many characters. Despite a length issue the plot is good.

The film's characters are mostly good. The one major character that I wasn't a fan of was the Joker. Tony Hale is a talented actor, but he shouldn't of been hired to do a high pitched Joker voice. I had a hard time standing the Joker.

Amanda Martin (photo: Dana Patrick)
Who doesn’t love a good and scandalous book? Well, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen definitely do as evidenced in their latest film “Book Club.”

Directed by Bill Holderman, the romantic comedy follows four lifelong friends when their lives are turned upside down after reading the infamously erotic "50 Shades of Grey." Along their journey, rising actress Amanda Martin steps in as a helpful flight attendant.

I recently caught up with Amanda Martin to find out more.


Tell us about your role in “Book Club.”

AMANDA MARTIN: I play a friendly Flight Attendant who is dappling in the art of matchmaking.

How was it to work alongside Diane Keaton and Andy Garcia?

AM: A dream. They are two masters so of course they quickly calmed any nerves I had working opposite them. Diane sweetly complimented me right off the bat and Andy Garcia could have chemistry with a potato, he is just beyond charismatic.

Becki Dennis
In the era of the #MeToo movement, the new indie feature film “Spin The Plate” showcases a young woman searching to heal her heart while seeking justice.

Actor Becki Dennis stars as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse in the film which was based on Donna Anastasi’s award-winning novel “Spin The Plate.”

Directed by Eric R. Eastman and adapted for the screen by Tom Anastasi, the film recently made its world premiere at the Boston International Film Festival, attracting attention and earning awards, including a ‘Best Actress’ win for Becki.

A Boston native, Becki stepped into the role of Associate Producer on the project and it wasn’t her first. Previously, she produced the short "Mildred’s Millions" and started the production company InspireWorks, Inc. to continue creating uplifting projects.

Becki has appeared on the big screen in David O. Russell’s "American Hustle" and Seth MacFarlane’s comedy, "Ted 2"; as well as on television shows such as "This Is Us," "Fresh Off the Boat," "Jane the Virgin," "Speechless," "GLOW," "How to Get Away with Murder," "Shameless," "I’m Sorry," Life in Pieces,"...

Suicide Squad is a DC film that was directed by David Ayer. The film has lots of fans, but the film was highly disliked by critics. I personally think that the film is great. This article is about discussing various things that the film did a great job at.

The first thing about the film that's worth noting is that it's such a unique film. A lot of films are about very morally responsible heroes or flawed people who eventually become great people. Although films like that can be heartwarming and inspiring I feel that there should be films that are entertainment instead of lessons. Suicide Squad is about edgy, crazy fun and it does a terrific job of doing that. Although some characters do become better later on they don't become morally perfect characters like Superman.

One of the film's most important elements is the cast. All of the members of the cast do a good job in the film. Will Smith has been accused of playing himself instead of playing Deadshot. Although I don't fully disagree with people that said that I think that his Deadshot performance works well as a likeable and fun leading character. Margot Robbie gave a great performance as Harley...

Marc Fajardo
Not everyone gets a chance to cozy-up to Dame Helen Mirren, but actor Marc Fajardo found out what it was like when he worked with her on the recently released feature film, The Leisure Seeker.

From Italian director Paolo Virzi, film follows an aging married couple Ella (Mirren) and John (Donald Sutherland) on an unforgettable journey in their faithful old RV. Terry (Marc Fajardo) runs across the couple at a campsite he works at, providing some much needed hope and help to Ella.

On the small screen, Marc is fresh off his role as a key video game designer on Alan Ball’s new HBO series Here And Now, and as a hotel clerk on USA’s anthology, UNSOLVED: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G.

A Filipino-American, born and raised in Los Angeles, Marc previously appeared as an escaped prisoner that smuggles exotic turtles in CBS’s S.W.A.T., in addition to stints on Lady Dynamite]/i] (Netflix), [i]It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX), CSI-Cyber (CBS), Pretty Little Liars (ABC), and Sleepy Hollow (FOX).

Disney adaptations of classic stories are hardly faithful, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. But it is troubling when the company defines a story so much to the point that we forget the true spirit of it. In particular, The Jungle Book by Ruyard Kipling is such a case.

Disney's 1967 animated classic is mostly remembered fondly, and I myself own it on Platinum Edition. While it is a shame that it couldn't be closer to the original story due to Disney himself finding it too dark for children, it's still a lighthearted, pleasant adventure with fun songs. In 2016, Disney released a live action remake of the animated film that takes a bit more from the original book. I enjoyed that one to an extent. However, it is still chained to the Disney label, with the unneeded addition of the songs and not going that dark. There were moments of action, peril, and mature themes, but like other PG-rated films, it couldn't go too far.

This year in October will come yet another Jungle Book film titled Mowgli. It's not from Disney, but from the motion-capture expert Andy Serkis. The film apparently has been given a PG-13 rating for intense bloody violence and thematic...

Superman's one of the most popular superheroes ever made. Because of his popularity he has had eight live action films. Justice League is excluded, because Superman doesn't have a big enough role in that film for it to count.

8. Superman and the Mole Man

Although the first Christopher Reeve Superman is considered to be the first Superman this obscure film from the 1950s is Superman's first film. The film has George Reeves as Superman who also played Superman in a live action TV show. The film was made during a time period where it was really hard to make good superhero films so this film lacks the great writing that modern superhero films have. Despite that the film isn't bad. George Reeves did a pretty good job as Superman and the plot is moderately interesting. Overall it's a decent Superman film and it's very impressive that a Superman film was made that early.

7. Superman: The Movie

This is a very important, iconic, and well made film when it comes to acting and visuals. Marlon Brando's acting is fantastic and Gene Hackman is very funny as Lex Luthor. The problem with the film is the plot. The plot focuses too much on...

Jenny Zerke
Love can be blissful. But, it can also be complicated. In fact, it’s these complications that have made for some of the most interesting storylines in the movies. They’ve even coined their own genre – the romantic-comedy or rom-com.

The new indie feature film, “Toss It,” is taking things a step further by showcasing a seriously entangled love dilemma in a way that delivers it as an ‘anti-romantic comedy’ way. The film and its stars are quickly emerging fan-favs on the festival circuit, including rising actress Jenny Zerke. She steps into the story as Marie, a crazy best friend to confess her love and throw another monkey wrench into this contemporary screwball comedy maze.

A Houston, Texas native now based in New York City, Jenny has been gaining attention on the festival circuit for her work in this film and in the short “Silly String Forever.”

I know that a lot of Batman fans would disagree with this, but I think that Batman and Robin is very overhated. Batman and Robin is a 1997 film that has become really hated by Batman fans. However I think that there's a lot of stuff in this film to like.

5. This film's versions of the heroes are well done.

I think that George Clooney's version of Batman actually works well. People have compared it to Adam West's Batman, but I think that it's good that there are things in common between them. Mr. Clooney has the same wholesome charm of Mr. West. Mr. Clooney's Batman took the silly stuff going on around them seriously and it led to a lighthearted and fun Batman.

Robin's rarely ever cool. Even a lot of the best versions of Batman have struggled to make Robin cool. However I like Chris O'Donnell as Robin. He acts like a punk, but a likeable and cool punk.

I also like Alicia Silverstone's version of Batgirl. She's like a edgier version of Batgirl from the 1960s' live action Batman show. This version of Batgirl is respectful and sweet to her uncle, but she's also a dangerous motorcycle lover. It's pretty cool.

Sarah Skeist
Ever wonder what it would be like to flirt with Owen Wilson? How about Ed Helms? Do you think you could keep a straight face?

Well, that’s exactly what actress SARAH SKEIST did for her latest role in the Warner Bros. road-trip comedy “FATHER FIGURES.”

The film follows two fraternal twin brothers (Owen and Ed) as they head out on a search for their father. This quest kicks off after their mom (played by Glenn Close) lets it slip that she’s not exactly sure who their ‘real’ dad is. Sarah joins in as a fun and flirty Flight Attendant the guys meet along the way.

Previously, you might have caught this New York native as a hard-hitting reporter in the Netflix political drama ”House of Cards.” And, theater-goers might recognize her from starring opposite Nathan Darrow in the original play, “Kill Me Like You Mean It.”

Sarah's also got several projects in the works, including an appearance in Flavio Alves’ dramatic feature “The Garden Left Behind” starring Michael Madsen, Ed Asner and Danny Flaherty; the short film “Black Hole” which was shot by award-winning cinematographer Brett Jutkiewicz;...

There are a lot of good actors that have gotten the attention, respect, and awards that they deserve, but there are some great actors that aren't the household names they should be. These are the top 10 most underrated actors in the world. This list is for both live action and voice actors.

10. John DiMaggio

Most people don't know who John DiMaggio is even though he's pretty much been in every popular animated show from recent years. His best roles include Aquaman in Batman: The Brave and the Bold and the Joker in Batman: Under the Red Hood. His most well known roles are Bender in Futurama and Jake in Adventure Time.

9. Seth MacFarlane

Although Seth MacFarlane does gets lots of praise for his comedy he doesn't get enough attention for his very impressive voice acting. He voices a big amount of characters in Family Guy including Peter, Stewie, Brian, Quagmire, Lois' dad, and varous others. Like Mel Blanc he is able to make the various characters he voices sound different from each other.

Note: This review is dedicated to Adam West.

Justice League is a 2017 superhero film that is the 5th film in the DC Extended Universe. Despite getting mostly bad reviews there are lots of good things in the film and this review is about why the film is worth checking out.

The Plot

Batman decides to lead a team of super heroes. He teams up with Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg. Batman is desperate to make the world safe, because of what happened to Superman. Sadly Steppenwolf is putting the world in danger. Batman and his fellow heroes try to stop Steppenwolf. They decide to save Superman's life and get him to join the team.

The film's trailers made the film look exciting and the film sure lives up to the trailers. The Justice League members have very dangerous things to deal with and the film goes a good job at keeping things epic and entertaining. The subplots about the super heroes are well written and interesting.

Mark St. Cyr
If you like a well-crafted bio-pic, then you’re going to love the film "Marshall." It’s based on an early trial in the career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall that later served as a template for his creation of the NAACP legal defense fund.

The film stars Chadwick Boseman in the title role, as he heads to Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white employer.

Joining the all-star cast is rising actor Mark St. Cyr. Originally from Louisiana, this now New York based actor has also appeared in Lifetime’s "I Love You…But I Lied," "Law & Order: SVU," "Royal Pains," and "Sneaky Pete."

Mark St. Cyr recently took some time to answer some questions about his latest role in "Marshall":

MARK: I play August, who is Langston Hughes' (Jussie Smollett) enigmatic boyfriend. Because the scene happens in a very public and very popular jazz club, our intimate relationship is only hinted at rather than open.

The Justice League film does have lots of trailers that reveal a lot about the film, but there are also a lot of things about the film that aren't fully revealed. I have predictions for 5 characters in the Justice League film.

Superman Prediction

I heard about Superman wearing a black costume in the film so I think that he's being brainwashed by either Steppenwolf or Darkseid into being evil which could bring back Batman's obsessive hatred of Superman.

Batman Prediction

Batman V Superman's version of Batman was supposed to be a meaner version of Batman on purpose due to the recent tragedies he dealt with. I think Batman will be more friendly and optimistic in the Justice League film despite acting like a wise guy in the film's trailers.

Steppenwolf Prediction

Steppenwolf is apparently the film's main villain who wants to destroy the world. However I think his real desire is to either retire or even get destroyed by the Justice League. In a interview with the actor that plays Steppenwolf mentioned that he's exhausted due to his age and how demanding Darkseid is. I have 2 predications for what his...

This review is dedicated to Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, and Gene Wilder.

Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a 2017 animated film. The film's plot is based on the classic 1971 Willy Wonka film, but the film also has the title characters of the Tom and Jerry franchise.

The Plot

Charlie Bucket is a broke kid who wants to get a golden ticket so he can go to Willy Wonka's place. Tom and Jerry try to help Charlie get a golden ticket. Eventually Charlie gets a golden ticket and visits Willy Wonka's place along with his grandfather and the other ticket winners. However Tom and Jerry are worried about Mr. Slugworth's sneaky plans. Willy Wonka shows the kids his eccentric place while Tom, Jerry, and Tuffy try to Mr. Slugworth.

A Willy Wonka animated film that stars Tom and Jerry is a very weird idea, but that's what I like about it. Lots of films are mocked for being too generic. A Willy Wonka/Tom and Jerry crossover film is thankfully not generic. The film has plenty of sweet and fun scenes. Tom and Jerry's rivalry with the film's main antagonist is a good addition that adds lots of...

My Little Pony: The Movie is a 2017 animated film that is based on the popular animated show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The film has the show's voice cast playing the main ponies and celebrities playing the film's new characters.

The Plot

Twilight Sparkle and her friends (Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Spike) try to save Equestria from the Storm King. The Storm King had his top sidekick (Tempest Shadow) get the world in danger and steal the princess' magic. The ponies are helped out by some new characters who become their friends.

Although this is a overly cute My Little Pony film the film's plot is actually really epic. The world is put in danger which makes this far more important ands epic than most My Little Pony stories. The characters' storylines may be predictable, but the conflict is awesome.

The Characters

Twilight Sparkle (as usual) is my favorite of the main ponies due to being more important, interesting, and cooler than her friends. Twilight's friends have forgettable roles in the film. Tempest Shadow's storyline is predictable, but at least she has a...

Actually, Ramsay plays twins brothers, Nathan and Cole Weaver, starring in the new the mystery-thriller feature, “The Reunion.”
