Plot:
Cee (Sophie Thatcher) and her father (Jay Duplass) have been roaming space for a while, always looking for the next possibility to make a little money. Now they have a contract to mine for gems on a remote moon. Their mission is not without its dangers to start with, but it becomes even more complicated than they thought. They run into Ezra (Pedro Pascal) who is looking for the very same gems they are – a volatile situation, leaving Cee to make some tough choices.

Prospect was pretty good, but not great. Overall, it left me with a positive impression but it just didn’t make me entirely happy.

Hellbenders (2012)

Hellbenders
Director: J.T. Petty
Writer: J.T. Petty
Cast: Clifton Collins Jr., Clancy Brown, Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon, Macon Blair, Stephen Gevedon, Larry Fessenden, Dan Fogler
Part of: /slash Filmfestival

Plot:
Lawrence (Clifton Collins Jr.) is part of the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints, a special order of priests from various faiths who have one thing in common: they sin regularly – which makes them uniquely suited to do exorcisms. But they have gotten a bit lazy and their sin-count is continuously going down. Which couldn’t come at a worse time.

Hellbenders promised to be blasphemous and fun. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me at all. It was way too dumb and boring.
