Movie Review-Time Lapse

Review-The love affair cinema has had with the aspect of time travel. What would any of us do, if we could either go forward or backward to change an event or make something happen for us? The subject creates the perfect cinema escape for the viewer. Time Lapse finds three close friends who just happen

Movie Review-Cut Bank

Review-Cut Bank is the new film from director Matt Shakman who has been known lately as a director of some of the Fargo television show episodes. With this film you can clearly see the influence on both the Coen Brothers and that television show. Cut Bank is that small hometown that resembles the Midwest feel

Movie Review- Samurai Avenger: The Blind Wolf

Review-Growing up, James was never a fan of westerns. I remember a girl persuading me to go see Silverado at the movie theater. I remember being so bored inside the theater. The film that would change that for me though was Pale Rider. I remember a midnight showing at the college theater and I sat

Movie Review-Der Samurai

Review-What Donnie Darko was to 2001, Der Samurai is to 2015. To describe the plot is basically Till Kleinert’s acid dream in the vein of a morbid fairy tale. If you are a fan of dark art house films, this film is going to really appeal to you right out the gates. The film opens

Movie Review-The Lesser Evil

Review-Bill Zebub is a director that has ushered in what I call “blasphemous trash” cinema. Trust me when I say that is not a negative, for Zebub he seems to wear it as a badge of honor. If his last film did not offend you, wait till you see his next is what I feel

Movie Review-Focus

Review-I am not sure if Focus is the comeback movie for Will Smith, or the vehicle to help launch Margot Robbie? Either way, this heist movie really has a clever way to keep your attention. Writers/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who last directed the much underrated Crazy, Stupid, Love have a way of knowing

Movie Review-Raiders of the Lost Shark

Review-Naming your film Raiders of the Lost Shark showcases two things. The first being that you have a sense of humor and two you have major balls. Going into a film like this with art work like it has, you are expecting this film if anything else to be campy and cheesy. Since I was

Movie Review-The Amazing Bulk

Review-Film junkies let’s be honest, the film is called The Amazing Bulk, and what are you expecting from this film? It is the equivalent of when people go into an Asylum film and they bitch and gripe even though that is the MO of Asylum for over a decade. I am not sure what the
