The indie superhero movie Sleight hits theaters nationwide on Friday, April 28. First-time director J.D. Dillard presented Sleight at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, where it competed in the NEXT category for bold, pure works with an innovative and forward-thinking approach to storytelling. 

After a young street magician is left to care for his little sister following their mother’s passing, he turns to dealing drugs, but he quickly runs into trouble with his supplier. When his sister gets kidnapped, he must rely on his smarts and sleight of hand to save her.

Check out the the trailer here!

“At the time I came along, Hollywood’s idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. The last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!”

The Bucks County Massacre (2010) | Jason Sherman

“A group of friends get together for a 25th birthday party at a remote house in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. After someone goes missing and the police search the premises to no avail, the remaining party goers are left to wait until morning. With virtually no cell phone reception and no land line, the situation escalates when one frantic friend takes matters into his own hands and ventures off in the woods to find his girlfriend. What they don’t know is that someone or some thing is hunting them one by one.“

Iron Fist - Season 1 (2017)

15 Years after presumably dying in a Plane crash Danny Rand appears barefoot in New York City looking for friends and answers. He may look like a homeless crackhead but he is actually the Heir to like a Bazillion Dollars and a Meganinja.

So here we have the final piece of the Netflix’s Defender Pie. This is Finn Jones running around New York fisting people as he tries to stay one step ahead of evil Criminal Cult The Hand (who you may remember from Daredevil Season 2). Unfortunately what we also have here is the least interesting of the Netflix Characters (both actor and hero-wise), the least interesting series plot and the least convincing action.

This is a whole Ninja, High Finance, Organised Crime Narcotic distribution Gig. It is neither a natural nor a happy mix. There is an air punch in episode one, or two that misses by like 12 inches and is clearly visible and cut to be a landing punch - it’s representative of the whole piece.

This goes for things like Corridor fights (so effective in DD) and Lift fights, big scenes in the rain and back lit in Neon. It wants to be slick and stylish but it just doesn’t hit the watermark. it’s a shame. I mean it is ok. I probably prefer this to Agents of Shield and certainly to Agent Carter. Colleen Wing is a decent Character and things brighten up when Rosario Dawson rocks up.

Perhaps the problem here is Finn Jones, he lacks the badassness of Charlie Cox, the wit and sarcasm of Krysten Ritter and the cool of Mike Colter, he’s more Charlie Day meets Anne Coulter and a Ritter Sports Bar (which is shitty chocolate btw).

This thing has a couple of ok twists but fundamentally didn’t hit hard enough for me and has left me kinda hoping Iron Fist takes a bit of back seat isn The Defenders.

“I am the Weapon!”

“Sweet Christmas!”

“I am the Iron Fist”.

“Stop the Car!”

“You died of Cancer 12 years ago!”

    “Oh Peter Parker? I go to school with him… he’s sort of the only friend my age I’ve got. Steve never lets us hang out unless we’re at home and he can see us. Bucky doesn’t mind if we study at the coffee shop across from our apartment building, as long as I don’t tell dad.”
    “Hold up, did you say Parker? Peter Parker. That’s the kid you’re head over heels for?″
