PC Principle Podcast: Bobby Roe & Zack Andrews (The Houses October Built)

houses_october_built_ver2

With the popularity of films such as The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, the found footage genre has had a steady flow of films released that were of varying quality. One would wonder why someone would try and release another film from a genre that is already cluttered with many forgotten efforts.

Well, in steps Bobby Roe and Zack Edwards, the creative force behind the film The Houses October Built. Not only have they crafted a fantastic found footage film, but they were able to add a twist to the genre that will give audiences a reason to watch it.

The film follows a group of friends who are looking to find an authentic, blood-curdling good fright for Halloween, they set off on a road trip in an RV to track down these underground Haunts. Just when their search seems to reach a dead end, strange and disturbing things start happening and it becomes clear that the Haunt has come to them.

PC Principle Podcast: Amber Borzotra

Amber Borzotra1

The hit CBS reality series Big Brother is currently airing its sixteenth season and as usual, it never fails to provide the audience with hours of entertainment. Showmances, plotting and backstabbing are some of the elements that make Big Brother one of the best reality shows on television today.

We had the opportunity to sit down with recently evicted houseguest Amber Borzotra. Amber talked with us about her experience in the Big Brother house, why an all female alliance might be a hard thing to pull off and of course the situation with Caleb who most likely hurt her chances to make it to the end.

If you would like to keep up to date with Amber's activities, you can follow her on Twitter @aborzotra or you can visit her official page aborzotra.com!

What is the human condition? What does it mean to you? If you look up the meaning of the human condition it says that it is the positive and negative aspects of existence as a human being, especially the inevitable events such as birth, childhood, adolescence, love, sex, reproduction, aging, and death.

Brandon Henry Rodriguez, Arnie Pantoja and Keith Pratt decided to put their own spin on the human condition by creating a webseries of the same name. The first three episodes of the series deals with perversion, mating and death. What they have created is one of the funniest webseries out there today and definitely show their creative edge.

Today we talk with Brandon, one of the creative minds behind the series. We discuss the evolution of the series, what he would like fans to take from the series and the overall climate of television and the internet today.

Below you will also find links to their website and various social media sites that are related to the series.

Seeking Justice review and interview

Say what you want to say about Nicolas Cage, the man sure knows how to keep himself in the spotlight. Recently with trouble in his personal life, unusual choices of roles in films and an overall mystique about him, Cage is definitely one who stays in our collective conscience. With recent roles in such films as Ghost Rider:Spirit of Vengeance, Season of the Witch and Drive Angry, he hasn't been on shall we say a hot streak at the box office. So it was with a little apprehension that I sat down to watch his latest film Seeking Justice. Although Seeking Justice had a limited theatrical release, it is being released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 19th nationwide. The film boasts what I consider a very solid cast. Guy Pearce, January Jones, Jennifer Carpenter, Harold Perrineau and Xander Berkeley. You would think with a cast this strong, there is no way they can mess this up right? Well, I am here to tell you that although there is nothing new here with Seeking Justice,  it's still a worthwhile film to check out.

School teacher Will Gerard (Nicolas Cage) and his wife Laura (January Jones), lead a normal life in suburbia when that is all shattered after Laura is brutally attacked and raped by a stranger. In the hospital, Will is confronted by a shady character named Simon (Guy Pearce) who represents an organization that is tired of people getting away with crimes and not paying the price for what they have done. He offers Will an option. We'll take care of the person who did this to your wife and in return, we'll ask a small favor from you sometime in the future, nothing to worry about. Now, any sane thinking person would surely turn down such an offer, but put yourself in Will's shoes. Would you actually consider it? As I am sure you can guess, Will does take Simon up on the offer. He is told by Simon to go to the vending machine in the lounge area and order 2 candy bars. Once he's done that, they will know he is in. I really didn't understand the candy bar thing and who actually saw the signal, but we will leave that one alone. Will soon finds out that this secret organization has branches all over and they use the relatives of victims to commit the actual crimes, thus leaving them with no real connection to the crimes. I found this a little hard to believe from the beginning that such a group exists, but I went with it. To complicate matters, Will's best friend Jimmy (Harold Perrineau) is a member of this group. Will doesn't find this out until he decides not to play along with what the group wants. We get the nice car chases and action sequences, all well done by director Roger Donaldson, but again, nothing we haven't seen before. After Laura is kidnapped by Jimmy to get Will to finish the job, we have the final showdown with all three men. I won't spoil anything for you,but I guess you can figure out how it ends.

In the end, I didn't find myself turning away from the film at anytime which is a good thing. It kept my attention throughout.  It's definitely not Cage at his best, but it's still a pretty good film and definitely a step up from his last couple of movies.  Both Guy Pearce and Harold Perrineau do well with their parts, January Jones is a bit more animated than she usually is and Jennifer Carpenter is almost non-existent in the film. Seeking Justice kind of reminded me of those spy thrillers from back in the day with its plot and action. If you are looking for a film that has a decent plot, some good old fashion action and Nicolas Cage showing again what he is capable of, then Seeking Justice just might be a nice film for you to see. Pop Culture Principle was lucky enough to sit down with one of the stars of the film, Harold Perrineau, who gave us some insight on the film, how it was working on set with Nicolas Cage and some other nuggets of information on the film. We want to thank Harold for taking the time to talk with us. Below you will find the interview we did with Harold. Seeking Justice (Anchor Bay) Directed by Roger Donaldson Starring Nicolas Cage, January Jones, Guy Pearce, Harold Perrineau Jr., Jennifer Carpenter.
