‘Prism’ Review – Indie Film Gathering 2017

0 Submitted by on Fri, 15 September 2017, 15:59
Prism is a film of interconnected stories that revolve around different colors that represent various moods and personalities. The premise makes it feel as though the movie is going to be long and artsy. The kind of pretentiousness that contains lingering shots and pompous fluff dialogue. Thankfully, this possibility is not the case. The movie is brief yet poignant, and Continue Reading...

“Trolling: The Movie!” would be an appropriate title for Drib, because it feels like that’s what movie is all about. The film is a documentary-comedy about the supposed real story of performance artist Amir Asgharnejad and his foray into the marketing world of energy drinks. The movie begins with a stunningly well-developed montage of commercials that parody energy drink advertisements. Continue Reading...

Dan Dream is a slapstick comedy based on the true story of the first electric car.While some of the facts surrounding the actual event are true, it is quite obvious that the movie has fabricated a humorous series of scenes around it.

‘Bad Black’ Review – Fantasia Fest 2017

0 Submitted by on Thu, 07 September 2017, 10:59
Bad Black straight from Wakaliwood! This fun gem is one of the few Ugandan forays into the action film genre. Supposedly costing $65 and taking five years to make, this still shows the passionate effort of the filmmakers and the people in the town where it took place. Sure, it has bad special effects, hammy acting, and is a little difficult Continue Reading...

Savage Dog is a good ole martial arts flick, though it should be noted that it is on the gritty realism side of the genre. So instead of wire-fu and magic there is just punching, kicking, and shooting. In Indochina during the 1950s’ and is about Martin Tillman who is a war criminal imprisoned in a makeshift facility run by Continue Reading...

Though appearing to be influenced by such animated works as “Coraline” and “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends,” “Ana y Bruno,” director Carlos Carrera’s first animated feature film, fails to achieve half of what made those two animated projects so good in the first place. The movie opens with little girl named Ana arriving with her mom at a mental institution. Continue Reading...
