Sometimes, it's difficult to recommend a movie that - by design - is viciously disheartening and disturbing.

"Aftermath," a brutal end-of-the-world thriller directed by Peter Engert, is such a film: It's bleak, depressing and discouraging - but as a poignant elegy for post-apocalyptic civilization, it is powerfully effective.

CLEARWATER - “Dolphin Tale 2,” the follow up movie to the successful 2011 Warner Bros film “Dolphin Tale” outlining Winter’s journey and recovery, will hit theaters Sept. 12.

Warner Bros. recently announced that the release date has been moved up one week from the previously announced date of Sept. 19.

According to a press release from Clearwater Marine Aquarium, “Dolphin Tale 2” continues the true story of Winter the dolphin whose miraculous rescue and recovery, thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail, made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world. The film tells another true story inspired by the life of Winter and introduces a new baby dolphin named Hope, rescued by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in 2010. Winter and Hope, who both reside at CMA, play themselves in the movie.

With a name like "All Cheerleaders Die," it's evident that this new Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainment release - scheduled for VOD and limited theatrical release June 13 - is meant for a niche market.

That very specific demographic of hardcore horror aficionados may be pleasantly surprised by this little cinematic gem. "All Cheerleaders Die" is sloppy - its plot choppy and its CGI lackluster - but it's still darkly funny, inventive and occasionally scary - well, mildly unsettling, anyway.

CLEARWATER - When Yvonne and Hank Charneskey formed VonHenry Productions in 2006 to film events for others, on a contract basis, they certainly weren’t thinking they’d become award-winning documentary filmmakers.

But less than a decade later, the Clearwater couple’s first feature-length documentary, “Go Mickey Go,” was named Best Documentary Feature at the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival, and they’re hard at work on their next two documentary projects.

CLEARWATER - David Yates and Clearwater Marine Aquarium staff are buzzing about the release of the first poster for the much-anticipated sequel, "Dolphin Tale 2."

Last March, "Rio 2" audiences got the first look at the initial "Dolphin Tale 2" movie trailer, and the first official movie poster has now been released. Looking ahead, on June 13, the second "Dolphin Tale 2" trailer will be released with "How to Train Your Dragon 2."

Let's begin with a generalization: "The Sacrament" is not for the squeamish or the easily offended.

The film, distributed by Magnet Releasing and set to open in select theaters June 6, is a disturbing tale about a religious movement seeking to establish a utopian community. "The Sacrament" straddles the line between being trailblazing genre cinema and exploitative insolence.

Superhero films - as well as action movies in other subgenres - often fail because more emphasis is placed upon dazzling special effects and glittery staging than developing a gripping narrative. The desire to astound audiences with sheer spectacle overrides articulate story evolution.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" manages to defy the odds, delivering a coherent and compelling fast-paced plot punctuated by expressive drama, explosive action and even a few well-placed scenes of comic relief.
