Casablanca 70th Anniversary Celebration Normally, Wednesday nights are not very exciting. It’s the middle of the week, and there are two more days until the weekend. But one Wednesday in March of 2012 was anything but ordinary. March 21, 2012 was the day that thousands across the U.S. were enthralled and thrilled to view a […]

Claustrophobia is a fear we all have. Human beings love being able to move about and frolic. In fact, I love it so much that even riding a crowded train can become a painful experience. So it’s surprising that the thought of being trapped inside a box has never crossed my mind. That is to […]

Teen A Go Go

Teen A Go Go

| March 19, 2012 | 0 Comments

Teen A Go Go is a mess of contradictions. What initially intrigued me about the doc was that it was a film that focused on rock and roll in the 1960s. An avid rock fan, this seemed like the ideal film. However, before going much further, readers should be warned. Teen A Go Go is […]

Franklin & Bash

Franklin & Bash

| June 3, 2011

“Franklin & Bash” answers the question: What if normal, everyday guys were lawyers? Jared Franklin (played by Breckin Meyer of Road Trip fame) and Peter Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar: Saved By the Bell, NYPD Blue) party, play video games, and crack wise at other people’s expense. Having grown up watching “Saved By the Bell,” I fully […]

Lorem ipsum ex vix illud nonummy, novum tation et his. At vix scripta patrioque scribentur, at pro fugit verterem molestiae, sed et vivendo alienum maluisset. Veri equidem liberavisse vim et, erat delenit nostrum ut sed. Cum harum audire signiferumque ex, nullam indoctum id eam, ius fastidii sapientem ne. Cum euismod feugiat vivendo id, mea no […]

Black Book

Black Book

There has been a lot said about what really happened during World War II, and I think it safe to say that it’s proven to be an inexhaustible subject. Even more importantly, it is a subject that requires reverence. Considering Paul Verhoeven’s previous films (i.e.: Sarah Brightman: Diva and Showgirls), Black Book is a serious, […]

Strange Circus

This movie finds its place in the western world because of its perverse, intellectual threads. Already a winner of “Best Feature Film” by the Fantasia Film Festival and “Official Selection” at the Tokyo International Film Festival, Sion Sono’s direction appeals to our basest natures by giving sexual perversion a whole new mystery. Attempting to understand […]

Disturbing Images

Disturbing Images

| February 22, 2007

Sean McKnight’s Disturbing Images is based on the controversial life and artistic vision of one director and photographer Helmut K., a man whom (despite research) may or may not be entirely fictional. Despite this, his story is intriguing albeit disgusting, a combination that guarantees some nausea while you’re being entertained. Helmut K. begins his documentary […]

The Ultimate Gift

The Ultimate Gift

| February 22, 2007 | 0 Comments

The Ultimate Gift is based on the novel by Jim Stovall. For most, the storyline is familiar almost the moment the movie begins. Redundant and predictable, its major redeeming factor is Emily (Abigail Breslin), with her artistic mouth and bittersweet ending. Jason Stevens (Drew Fuller) begins the movie as a spoiled 20-something arriving late to […]

In English indie filmmaker Shane Meadows’ latest film, recently discharged soldier Richard (Paddy Considine – In America, The Cinderella Man) returns home to the Midlands to seek revenge against the gang of local bullies who did some very bad things to his rather simple-minded little brother, Anthony (Toby Kebbell – Match Point, Alexander). While Richard […]
