The Skeptic – New poster for Tom Arnold horror…read into that what you will

Posted by LiveFor on April 17, 2009

I posted the trailer for this film back in February. Now there is a poster.

After the mysterious death of his Aunt, a confirmed skeptic lawyer, Bryan Becket, dismisses reports that her house is haunted and moves in. Immediately occurrences begin he cannot explain. And beyond the occurrences there is something about the house which gnaws at Becket – some strange connection he senses he has with the house’s past. Soon, the haunting turns personal, he hears voices suggesting clues to a deep mystery. He questions his sanity, seeks medical help, but instead finds assistance in a young psychic who immediately declares, “There’s a very bad secret in this house.” Together they embark on a terrifying journey to uncover the secret – a journey which leads them deep into the recesses of The Skeptic’s own troubled mind.

Written and directed by Tennyson Bardwell. Starring Tim Daly, Tom Arnold, Zoe Saldana

The Great Buck Howard, 2008 – Movie Review

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2009

Director: Sean McGinly
Starring: John Malkovich, Colin Hanks, Emily Blunt, Tom Hanks, Tom Arnold, Griffin Dunne
Running Time: 87 minutes
Score: 2 / 10

This review by Pamela Fruendt.

I saw a preview of THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD last night ( 3/18/09 ). The story is loosely based on the career of Master Mentalist ‘The Amazing Kreskin.’

I had every anticipation of having a great evening…Great word out of Sundance. Great trailer. Free film. What could be bad about it?

Guess what? This film is so utterly disappointing. It is a cruel and demeaning look at aging performers unable to adapt to a changing world.

John Malkovich gives a moving performance as Buck Howard…After all, he is John Malkovich but he can’t carry the film alone. Colin Hanks’ acting is flat and uninspired giving the oh so talented Emily Blunt mere crumbs with which to work.

Even Colin’s real life father, Tom Hanks, can’t save this film despite a moving yet all too brief appearance .

See the film if you’re a Malkovich fan…otherwise wait for cable or DVD. I’ve seen the Amazing Kreskin myself and this film does him a tremendous disservice.

The Skeptic – Trailer

An early trailer for The Skeptic. After the mysterious death of his Aunt, a confirmed skeptic lawyer, Bryan Becket, dismisses reports that her house is haunted and moves in. Immediately occurrences begin he cannot explain. And beyond the occurrences there is something about the house which gnaws at Becket – some strange connection he senses he has with the house’s past. Soon, the haunting turns personal, he hears voices suggesting clues to a deep mystery. He questions his sanity, seeks medical help, but instead finds assistance in a young psychic who immediately declares, “There’s a very bad secret in this house.” Together they embark on a terrifying journey to uncover the secret – a journey which leads them deep into the recesses of The Skeptic’s own troubled mind.
