Movie Review-My Name Is ‘A’ by Anonymous

Review-This film is loosely based on the 2009 killing of 9 year old Elizabeth Olten. Going into the film I did not know about the case or the character, but this is one of those films that break it all down for people who may be in the dark about this matter. She was killed

Movie Review-Game of Assassins

Review-Originally titled the Gauntlet, this film can be summed up by the sentence, “If you cannot create, then copy”. This film has a premise that is very Saw-inspired. The film opens we meet David who has just woken up with no recollection on how he got there in some medieval looking place. As David gets

Movie Review-Godzilla

Review-Rebooting a franchise for the fans is always going to come under scrutiny. Godzilla in the hands of Gareth Edwards was a huge gamble. Those who seen his film Monsters, knew that the man was a great visionary and seems to create more suspense from his characters while being stingy with the monsters. Godzilla that

Movie Review-Night Moves

Review-Kelly Reichardt is a great indie director who I loved her films Wendy and Lucy and Old Joy. She brings realism to her stories and characters that just really capture the essence of pure storytelling. Her work so far can be called emotionally positive.

Movie Review-Monika

Review-I am starting to think that the remake of I Spit On Your Grave was a fluke for Steven R Monroe. Everything he did before it, was awful and everything since has not been good at all. I feel with Monroe he just wants to put his name on any film, and hope for the

Movie Review-Out of the Clear Blue Sky

Review-What makes a documentary effective? I feel when you take a subject that hits home for people and besides putting images on it, you put a human face on it. In my lifetime, there is no day that can touch 9/11/01 in terms of devastating this country. Just when you think you heard all the

Movie Review-Very Good Girls

Review-Very Good Girls is a film that on paper felt like a hit, but when you see the finished product you are at a loss at how bland the film turned out. I am a fan of both Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen who play Lilly and Gerri. The film opens and our two friends

Movie Review-The Battery

Review-The Battery may do for zombie films what Wristcutters did for suicide films. I love when I stumble upon small films that while lack in budget, make up for it with imagination and heart. This is a very dark humor dramatic road trip with two guys who watch the world they once loved crumble before

TV Review-The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Fifth Season

Review-Vampire Diaries Season 5 was an interesting season that seems to have the fan-base torn a little. As people know Elena is now undead, and they seem to also turn it up a notch on the storytelling aspect of the show. Season 5 begins a little bit after all the tragic events in the finale
