Movie Review-Child of God

Review-Child of God is a love it/hate it type of film. This film has no middle ground, you are either going to be so wrapped up in the story of Lester Ballard that it will win you over, or you will be so bored by this slow burn film that you will find yourself trying

Movie Review-Satellite

Review-Satellite is a fascinating love letter to adulthood. In an age when most romantic films cater to teenagers to young adults, or most speak for females this film is a welcome breath of air. The film reminded of parts Lost in America and parts After Hours. The film centers on Ro and Kevin who are

Movie(s) Review-Life of Crime and A Most Wanted Man

Review-It seems most directors love to depend on the writings of Elmore Leonard for their projects. My experience has not been a positive with the screen transition of the films so far. I sort of liked Jackie Brown, I was not a fan of Out of Sight or Get Shorty; I felt both films were

Movie Review-Le Chef

Review-I admit I am a sucker for Food Network and all the shows they have. I am obsessed with teaching myself how to cook, and watching shows like Chopped and Bravo’s Top Chef really serve as my cliff notes. Jean Reno who is a very versatile actor really shines in Le Chef. Jean plays Alexandre

Movie Review-Female Gaze: Contemporary Films By Women

This dvd collection includes… Arcadia 91 minutes / Drama / English / Dir. Olivia Spencer Tom (John Hawkes) crams his three kids into a station wagon for the 3,000 mile journey from New England to California.

Movie Review-Free Fall

Review-Free Fall I feel is a little misleading for this film. The title of the film comes from the death of a coworker in the start of the film. We are introduced to a million dollar corporation called Gault Capital; it is run by a billionaire boss Thaddeus Gault. Jane who is just your everyday

Movie Review-Drive Hard and The Prince

Review-When I first heard the title of this film and saw the stars, I thought it was a parody of hoax films. Brian Trenchard-Smith has had such an up and down career that I honestly cannot remember the last film of his I really was happy or pleased with. (Dead-End Drive In, Leprechaun in Space

Movie Review-A Letter to Momo

Review-A Letter to Momo was originally released in 2011 and won a lot of praise from both critics and fans. This all comes with good reason; this little film in its 2 hours really delivers such a rich, honest and heartfelt story. Director Hiroyuki Okiura offers a realistic portrayal of his main character’s emotional state

Movie Review-Kundo

Review-Kundo has so many things working for it right out of the gate. It has a huge budget and some big stars. Unlike most period pieces this one is done more light than most we get. This film has a charm and personality to it that will keep most people involved with the story, and

Movie Review-Mystery Road

Review-Mystery Road is a fascinating noir that is both hypnotic and passionate. The film revolves around Jay Swan who is back to his outbreak roots when he is investigating the death of a local teenage girl. It seems as he starts to try getting details of what happened that it is met with anger. This
