I’m sure we all have words in our vocabulary that we have no problem using correctly in everyday conversation, but when asked to define we struggle conveying the word’s meaning to someone else.  This is largely how I felt watching Boredom, a new documentary about what it means to be bored.  As filmmaker Albert Nerenberg […]

The seventh law of Doctor Who Fandom states that when a former cast member of the sci-fi series goes on to do a new movie or television series, the fan will watch.  This was basically my only reason for volunteering to review Not Another Happy Ending, which stars Karen Gillan as Jane, a young novelist […]

The best way to draw attention to an upcoming film is to catch the audience’s attention with a clever title. Normally, the title has something to do with the film in question. For example, Gremlins has gremlins terrorizing a small, peaceful town. Also, there is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is pretty self-explanatory. And then there’s Legendary which neither describes […]

Its been a very long time since I’ve wanted to see a film again, right after I finished laying eyes upon it. Great films manage to resonate with you, whether its because of the characters, the dialog or the setting that manages to captivate and encapsulate everything that you love about film.

In Richard Shepard’s Dom Hemingway (2013), Jude Law stars as the titular foul-mouthed, yet magnificently verbose, Dom Hemingway– a snarling, self-absorbed maniac who also happens to suffer from crippling moments of crippling self-realization and doubt. The film opens on a long take of Dom speaking as if to the audience while nude and with arms […]
