The Los Angeles Film Festival Guide Out

The Los Angeles Film Festival Guide is out now.

Check it here

My top picks below, everything $13bucks unless your getting a pass.

Karate-Robo Zaborgar

I've been waiting for this since I read about it trying to be sold at the L.A. Film Market around the time AFI Fest was happening. Think of a Power Ranger with a motorcyle that's also a robot. Hosted by Giant Robot, should have seen that coming.

Another Earth

This Sci-Fi film was big talk and bought quickly. What do you do when there's another you? Plus, relationship problems.

Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame

If I'm not mistaken this is a returning character sort of like the James Bond franchise. The snyopsis points to a damn good martial arts movie.

"The giant Buddha statue commemorating the coronation of China’s first female emperor is nearly finished and everything is on track for a grand ceremony when state officials suddenly start spontaneously combusting. Could the Empress be the next target? In prison for treason, Detective Dee has seen better days, but even the Empress knows he’s the only one who can solve the mystery of the phantom flame.
Rife with gigantic set pieces, thousands of extras and stunning fight choreography by Sammo Hung, Tsui Harks’s film reunites many of Hong Kong’s biggest stars for this martial arts meets police procedural adventure. Detective Dee will definitely have his hands full with this one"

Paper Soldier

oooh, Russian Space Program movie. A synopsis tells us it's to be visually stunning and painful to see how Communism can cut so deep into someones soul.

Mr. Nobody

What would happened if you were switched at birth or how about one parent got custody and the other didn't. In classic tradition you see what can unfold.
