FANTASIA! Time Travel, Extra-Dimensions and two kids in big trouble!

TRAILER Synchronicity

In the new movie Synchronicity  CHAD McKNIGHT plays Jim Beale a physicist who is testing a Time Machine when his world unravels. He falls for a mysterious and seductive woman, Abby, played by BRIANNE DAVIS, who awakens doubt and jealousy in him as he struggles with the paradoxes of time travel. The story has a well maintained tension all the way to the last twenty minutes when the story shifts into a totally different scientific hypothesis on time travel. I was interested in discussing the science behind this thriller that has one surprising plot twist after another with writer director JACOB GENTRY. I am completing the interview that will be published later this week. Until then you can catch the movie this July 30th @ Fantasia.

This week I have seen COP CAR produced by and starring KEVIN BACON as the mean Sheriff Kretzner. I can honestly say I have NEVER seen a movie like this, but it works. Most of the story is seen from the perspective of two little boys: JAMES FREEDSON-JACKSON as Travis and HAYS WELLFORD as Harrison: who happen upon what appears to them like an abandoned police car. We find out soon enough that it belongs to Sheriff Kretzner who is a corrupt murderer. We get caught up in the fate of the two little boys who are constantly threatened from all sides. If the story seems improbable to you then you must not have little boys in your family at this time because they can get into all kinds of complications because of their curiosity. The unfoldment of the plot is so unusual I don't want to spoil it for you. All I can say is that it is suspenseful to the end.

Of course there are many movies to choose from at the ongoing FANTASIA FESTIVAL Check it out! It is the most amusing film festival of this city where anything can happen and where there are always fun movie buffs to discuss recently viewed films with. I just love it!
