Talk to Me Set in Washington D.C., the film opens in May 1966 with WOL radio executive Dewey Hughes (Chiwetel Ejiofor) visiting his brother Milo (Mike Epps) in prison, where he’s serving 20 to life. Petey Greene (Don Cheadle) acts as a disc jockey as he broadcasts over the prison P.A. system. Milo has told his brother about Petey, but Dewey finds him crude and unfunny. As Dewey leaves the facility, he crosses paths with Petey who asks about a job at the radio station. Dewey has no interest in Petey due in part to his being a convict with at least five to ten left on his sentence. Rather than tell Petey “No” when he says he’s going to look him up when he gets out, Dewey replies, “You do that,” believing he will never hear from Petey again. During a meeting at ...

Seed of Chucky Young, childlike doll, Shitface, is haunted by recurring nightmares where he brutally murders people. A sad, gentle soul, Shitface (voiced by Billy Boyd), is a living doll being exploited by phony punk ventriloquist, Psychs (Keith-Lee Castle), who keeps him caged when he’s not using him in his stage act. After appearing at the Glastonbury Ventriloquist Festival, Shitface sees a TV show, featuring a backstage glimpse of an upcoming horror movie starring talking dolls Chucky and Tiffany (voiced by Brad Dourif and Meg Tilly), and notices that Chucky has the same birthmark as him—a “Made in Japan” stamp, branded onto his wrist. After escaping from Psychs, Shitface ships himself off to the Hollywood set, via international mail, determined to find the two horror stars, whom he’s certain are his parents. Unfortunately for Shitface, when he arrives in Hollywood, he finds that the ...

Battlestar Galactica: Season One "Battlestar Galactica: Season One" presents Ronald D. Moore’s reimagined miniseries and the 13 episodes of the first season. While using the 1970’s version as a template, there are a lot of great changes to the update making it superior to the original. It’s been given a much more serious and dramatic tone and deals with modern-day events in the War on Terror. Aside from the changes of gender and nationality to some of the characters, the show’s most important distinction from the past is that Man created the Cylons. The miniseries opens with titles informing us of the Cylon War between human beings and the Cylons, evidently robots. After the armistice was signed, yearly summits were scheduled between the two groups but the Cylons didn’t appear until the 40th year. It is revealed to the viewer that Cylons can take human ...

Eastern Promises A few years ago, David Cronenberg made “A History of Violence,” starring Viggo Mortensen. It seemed to be a deviation from the well-regarded Canadian director, formerly a specialist in distinctive horror movies. But “Eastern Promises,” also with Mortensen, is similar to “History,” as it’s also a layered, deeply felt story of crime and criminals. In its storytelling, it’s more mainstream than Cronenberg’s usual films (although “The Fly” was straightforward as well), but few mainstream movies have characters this rich while still being occasionally as gruesomely violent as Cronenberg’s less, um, sophisticated fans want. It’s an outstanding movie, one of the best of 2007, and Mortensen fully deserved his best actor Oscar nomination. Set in London, “Eastern Promises” opens with scenes of a barber, Azim (Mina E. Mina), slashing the throat of a customer, then a young woman hemorrhaging in a chemist ...

Zodiac (2007) Please see our archived review of the theatrical release of “Zodiac” on ModernHomeTheater.com. That commentary and opinion still stand regarding this HD DVD release. This is a two-disc set, the first disc containing the feature itself, here a few minutes longer than in theaters—but you’d have to be more of an expert on the film than I am to identify the new material. (You can find it on the IMDb page for “Zodiac.”) In the commentary track that features actors Robert Downey, Jr., Jake Gyllenaal, screenwriter/producer James Vanderbilt, producer Brad Fischer and novelist James Ellroy (who has nothing to do with the movie), occasionally someone points out a scene that was cut from the theatrical release, but this isn’t done with any regularity. Both of the commentary tracks are very worthwhile. Director Fincher is soft-spoken but thorough, clearly very well-informed on filmmaking ...
