Adam’s Wintery Thriller Pick: ‘Deadfall’

In: Adam, Movies

I loathe seeing straight guys on the big screen and lustin’ for them- it seems desperado for me. HOWever, when a movie brings the sexiness and thriller factor like “Deadfall” does, I’m willing to make an exception. Eric Bana gets dirty and terrifying as the murderous and slightly incestuously inclined antagonist thief who gets pitted against the rustic good boy and hot as heck Charlie Hunnam (REMEMBER him from Queer as Folk? Didn’t think he’d turn out this hot!). While Charlie’s current IMDB pics make him look like a Ted Kaczynski lookalike, in this 2012 release, he looks clean shaven and good enough to take home to mom. Speaking of mom, the movie packs some real star power and uses Sissy Spacek as the sweet, supportive if not slightly sad mother of Hunnam who brings home dirty girl Olivia Wilde of “House” fame. Olivia plays the greedy and abused sister to Bana’s psychopathic ways as she gets caught between wanting to please both her new beau and her controlling bro.

That’s about as much of the plot as I want to give away without ruining anything for you- and to be honest the general storyline is pretty predictable within the first 20 minutes of the film and yet, you follow this one from start to finish without a second of boredom. Following the separated siblings after a big heist, you get to watch their demons and characters play out as you assume they’ve never spent more than 20 mins apart from one another in their lives. The movie is violent, smart, sexy (again, quite sexy) and a good ride. Taking place in the American Tundra, there’s a ton of beautiful shots and haunting frozen scenes that juxtapose the eventual torturous bloodied scenes you know are inevitable.

The movie remake for Carrie should be pretty epic and this teaser trailer for the 2013 film just leaves you thirsty for more. As you know, the original role of Carrie White was played by Sissy Spacek. In the remake, Chloë Grace Moretz takes on the role and her mother, Margaret White is played by the amazing Julianne Moore.

As the story goes, Carrie and her very religious and conservative mother live in the quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom her mother has sheltered from society. Carrie’s gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Judy Greer) tries to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargensen (Portia Doubleday), but only Chris’ friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets her actions. In an effort to make things right, Sue asks her hot boyfriend Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to the prom. After a cruel prank by her peers at the prom, Carrie is pushed to the limit and unleashes telekinetic havoc upon her classmates and the entire town. The teaser trailer gives us a glimpse of that havoc.

The Carrie remake hits theaters on March 15, 2013. Check out the first teaser trailer below!
