SnagFilms & Holy Rollers

The future is no longer a concept.  2015 is here and with it comes more extreme ways of viewing entertainment.  We no longer have to venture out to a movie theater; nor drive to a video store.  Video stores!  How antiquated an idea!  Nowadays, so many of us are accustomed to enjoying our films and television shows in an immediate way.  Somewhat like that Keanu Reeves film, “Johnny Mneumonic”, we directly stream entertainment in ways that seemed as far off as face to face video conferencing and direct messaging.  A site of particular interest would undoubtedly be SnagFilms.com and we believe this is a site to look out for.

Premiering on SnagFilms this past week was the 2010 Gotham Award Winner and Sundance Film Festival Grand Prize nominee “Holy Rollers.”  It stars Jesse Eisenberg, soon to be Lex Luthor in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, along with Justin Bartha (“The Hangover”, “National Treasure”).  The film, directed by Kevin Asch, centers around a young Rabbinical student named Sam Gold looking to make extra money.  In searching for ways to provide for his family, and the young Jewish woman he hopes to marry, he takes a questionable job offer from his best friends brother.  The job, which proves to not be legitimate, turns out to be a drug smuggling operation in which Hasidic Jews smuggle pure MDMA (ecstasy) out of Amsterdam through customs in New York.  The drug smuggling proves to be a way of earning fast cash and an opportunity for Sam (Jesse Eisenberg) to make a name for himself, but it isn’t without consequences.

“Holy Rollers” is a relatively short film; a fast paced and reflective 1 hour and 29 minutes.  The film, itself a pun on the term “holy rollers”, this time signifying a sense of Holy rolling (an inside term regarded for being high on ecstasy) is just as the title suggests.  Yet it is directed with the reverence and respect towards an important religious culture that you normally wouldn’t expect from a film of this material.  Credit must be given to director Kevin Asch and writer Antonio Macia for handling the story of Hasidic Jews in the late nineties being used as drug mules with dignity.  Immediate from the opening shot, we are treated to a rather intimate portrait of an American Hasidic Jewish family making a living in Brooklyn, NY.  It is through the realness of the family dynamic that makes the rest of the film so jarring in it’s downward spiral into degradation and the high price of criminality.  Jesse Eisenberg, one of the finest and hardest working actors today, shines immensely as the earnest and mild-mannered working man and Rabbinical student.  “Holy Rollers” is a prime example of an actor becoming a character and not merely an actor playing one.  Eisenberg is flawless as Sam Gold and his performance is one to be spoken of for quite some time.

SnagFilms has its history dating back to 2008.  The “social-video viewing platform” believes in a world where films and entertainment should be free and accessible for everyone.  It’s a noble concern and goal, one that is backed by their statement “We believe that great movies and motivated fans can change the world.”  With films like “Holy Rollers” being offered, it appears as if SnagFilms is a site worth your time.  Especially if you love movies.  And especially if you believe in the future!

Holy Rollers is now available on Snagfilms.com  Holy Rollers gets four out of five stars.

Witness the early sparks of Rumplestiltskin’s and Belle’s star-crossed romance, when Belle was just a servant in Rumplestiltskin’s castle.

About “Once Upon a Time”

 

Master storytellers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (“Lost,” “Tron: Legacy”) invite everyone to join Emma Swan, Snow White, Prince Charming, the Evil Queen, Hook and all the other resident fairy tale characters on their quests to reclaim their happy endings.  Welcome to Storybrooke, Maine, a small town that probably won’t show up on your GPS, but it’s a magical place to visit.  Reality and myth merged after Emma broke Regina’s curse, which had deprived the fairy tale characters of their memories and trapped them in our modern world.  When they finally regained their identities, our heroes were dismayed to discover that they weren’t transported back to Fairy Tale Land.  To make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin – aka Mr. Gold – decided to escalate his power struggle with Regina by introducing magic into the town.  But this is our world, and magic always has a tendency to yield unfathomable consequences.

 

“Once Upon a Time” stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen/Regina, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/David, Emilie de Ravin as Belle, Colin O’Donoghue as Hook, Jared S. Gilmore as Henry Mills and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold.

If You’ve Got It, Haunt It! ‘Lumberjanes’ #9 Goes to Second Print
from Bill, January 22nd, 2015 8:42 pm, comic book

 If You’ve Got It, Haunt It! ‘Lumberjanes’ #9 Goes to Second Print

Peanuts #25 Main Cover

Lumberjanes #9 Second Print Cover by Brooke Allen

January 22, 2015 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – BOOM! Box, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, is pleased to announce that Lumberjanes #9 from Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters, and a host of creative talent, has sold out at the distributor level. The publisher has rushed to a second printing.

 

Comic book fans should bear in mind that first printings of Lumberjanes #9 may still be found at the local comic shop nearest you. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer? Use comicshoplocator.com or findacomicshop.com to find one!

 

Lumberjanes is the runaway hit series about five, rad, butt-kicking pals determined to have an awesome summer together at Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types, where things are not what they seem. Hailed by many critics as one of the best comic series of 2014, Lumberjanes was recently honored with a nomination for Outstanding Comic by the LGBT media advocacy organization GLAAD.

 

In issue #9, in order to earn the “If You’ve Got It, Haunt It” badge, the Lumberjanes head out to the deep, dark woods. But the woods aren’t so scary anymore, now that the Lumberjanes have kicked, punched, and befriended all the fearsome magical monsters out there, so they set out to find the one thing that can still scare them all: campfire stories! Issue #9 is written by Noelle Stevenson & Shannon Watters, and Faith Erin Hicks, featuring art by Hicks, Brittney Williams, Aimee Fleck, Becca Tobin, Carolyn Nowak, Felicia Choo, and T. Zysk.

 

Praise for Lumberjanes #9:

 

“…if you enjoy great characters, a fun plot structure that gives each of the characters room to tell us a little more about themselves, with absolutely fabulous art throughout the entire issue, then this is definitely for you.” – Newsarama

 

“The writing in this issue is top-notch as per usual, with some especially good puns (a bonus for me – ‘If You’ve Got it, Haunt It’ is the perfect name for a ghost story badge). The girls tell their stories not only in their own voice, but the story tries to fit their personality or reveals something about them.” – Adventures in Poor Taste

 

“This was a delightful issue, with moments of friendship and humor entwined with the spooky tales.” – Comic Bastards

 

“…this issue is a great showcase of Lumberjanes’ charms, and I can’t wait to see what future issues have in store for us.” – Word of the Nerd

Lumberjanes #9 second print ships from BOOM! Box with a new cover by main series artist Brooke Allen and carries a retail price of $3.99 with a Diamond Code of DEC148101. Final orders close for retailers on January 26th. It is anticipated to be in stores on February 11th.

About the Publisher

12-Gauge Comics was founded by Keven Gardner in 2004 and currently publishes some of the most successful and critically acclaimed independent comic books in the marketplace today. Initial success came quickly for the company, when its debut title, THE RIDE, launched as the top-selling new black and white comic of the year in 2004. That was quickly followed by the release of Jason Pearson’s smash-hit BODY BAGS, which sold out immediately. 12-Gauge then solidified its position as a force to be reckoned with by packaging THE O.C.T. (Occult Crimes Taskforce), an original comic book concept co-created and starring actress ROSARIO DAWSON. THE O.C.T. has been featured on “The Today Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Access Hollywood,” and many other media outlets.

In 2009 12-Gauge began to firmly solidify its unique identity by publishing under its own banner (prior titles were through Image Comics), starting with the company’s first licensed property, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: The Comic Series. Featuring original stories by series creator/director TROY DUFFY, the comics were a huge success. 12-Gauge then moved into the untapped market of country music with superstar recording artist TRACE ADKINS. In LUKE MC BAIN, Adkins lends his likeness to a hard-as-nails character in an adventure story of revenge and redemption. Adkins went on a wide publicity tour for the comics, with highlights being a guest appearance on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and a feature story in “USA Today.” Critical praise has continued to follow the release of other new titles, such as the high-concept series MAGUS,  R.P.M. from NYT #1 Bestselling author MICK FOLEY, the action-franchise ICE, gritty crime drama LOOSE ENDS, and Gale Anne Hurd’s ANTI. For more information, please visit www.12gaugecomics.com or email info@12gaugecomics.com.
