Now Playing at Impro Studio: X-FILES: UNCLASSIFIED

If you took my advice and got yourself to Stranger Suggestions at Impro Studio this month, you might also want to check out X-Files: Unclassified, playing there every Friday night at 8:00 p.m. until October 27. In fact, wouldn’t October be the perfect month to geek out to something spooky? I understand that the truth is still “out there,” and maybe “there” is a small improv theatre in Los Feliz… Only one way to find out! X-Files: Unclassified is a completely improvised, one-hour performance in the style of The X-Files. Different actors play Special Agents Alaina Bailey and Kit Culver during every...

Hey, You Guys! STRANGER SUGGESTIONS at L.A.’s Impro Studio Never Says Die (Or No…)

Following in the footsteps of the Duffer Brothers, the cast of Stranger Suggestions binge-watched classic 80s movies that pitted tenacious kids against villainous adults amidst supernatural happenings. In the vein of Stranger Things, this totally improvised show draws on The Goonies, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Last Starfighter, The NeverEnding Story, Flight of the Navigator, Labyrinth, etc. I saw their preview, and it was rad. Rather than trying to review a show that changes for every performance, I thought it would be more interesting to talk to director and cast member Kelly Holden Bashar (Fargo) about how Stranger Suggestions works. I knew...

World Premiere at South Coast Rep: Rachel Bonds’ CURVE OF DEPARTURE

Curve of Departure, making its world premiere on South Coast Repertory‘s Julianne Argyros Stage, is kind of an uncomfortable play.  I’m going to give you a quick summary, at the risk of some mild spoilers.  Many years ago, a man walked out on his wife and 12-year-old son. Now that man has died suddenly, and his ex-wife has traveled with his elderly father to Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the funeral. For one night before the service, these two are sharing a hotel room with the dead man’s now-adult son and his boyfriend. They begin their time together politely,...

Movie Review: THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD

If you’re looking for a feel-good, easy-going, buddy-movie, this is not it. If you’re wanting to sit back, watch explosions, enjoy a little gun-fight, and see classic Samuel L. Jackson alongside a Deadpool-channeling Ryan Reynolds, then The Hitman’s Bodyguard is what you need. Thanks to AMC Stubs Premiere and Gofobo, I was able to see a pre-release screening of the action comedy and, in short: WOW! The Hitman’s Bodyguard starts off with opening credits that are reminiscent of a James Bond film. This just makes the mundane tasks of waking up and getting ready for work seem not so monotonous....

Remembering George A. Romero

Remembering George A. Romero Review by Ray Schillaci The Movie Guys My first memory of hearing about George A. Romero was in 1972. My mother always gave each child the opportunity to pick what movie we were going to see. There were four of us boys altogether. Sometimes a re-release of a Disney or James Bond film was picked, and there were any number of $3 single cinema houses to choose from in the San Fernando Valley. It was fall, Halloween was looming, and my choice would be a strategic one. I was in junior high school, and the word...

The Justice League On-Set Media Scrum

The Justice League On-Set Media Scrum I wasn’t there, but I read all the articles so you didn’t have to! IMHO by Chris Morris Lapsed DC Fanboy So if you are like me, you woke up the other morning to a blitzkrieg of articles on my Facebook feed, all about the upcoming “Justice League” movie, set to hit theatres in November of 2017. So why did this even happen? Apparently, with the internet being all like that these days, promoting movies is important to do, even while the films are still shooting and won’t be out for 17 months!...
