The Men Who Stare At Goats

The Men Who Stare At Goats

| March 17, 2010

The Men Who Stare At Goats is not as wildly funny or Coen Brothers-esque as the film’s cover art would have you believe.

Bandslam

Bandslam

| March 14, 2010

Include Disney star Vanessa Hudgens in a teenage movie, and you pretty much expect a High School Musical-esque production. But what we actually get with Bandslam is so much less a Disney thing, and so much more a great little Indie that you can learn from. Will Burton (Gaelan Connell) is a high school student […]
