‘Gilbert’ Review

0 Submitted by on Mon, 25 September 2017, 12:59
The first time I ever heard the voice of Gilbert Gottfried it was coming out of the mouth of Iago the bright red parrot in Aladdin. Gilbert was one of many great things about that movie, but it was a character that always stuck with me. For decades Gottfried has been known as the wacky, screechy, and his pummel-you-over-the-head-with-jokes comedy Continue Reading...

Why You Need To Watch ‘American Vandal’

1 Submitted by on Fri, 22 September 2017, 16:59
One of the most intriguing things about comedy is its ability to to sneak intelligent thoughts and commentary behind admittedly and purposeful dumb jokes. There is a strict balance you have to hit to make it work, but when it it is done correctly it shocks the audience into awareness and you can watch their eyes as they begin to Continue Reading...

Is Breaking The Fourth Wall Good For The WWE?

“Kayfabe” is a word that doesn’t hold as much meaning as it used to. The term means “treating the events in professional wrestling as true and real,” that what is seen in a show was 100% authentic as opposed to a staged production imitating an actual sports competition. For decades kayfabe was protected, wrestlers were expected to be in character Continue Reading...

When trying to describe an interactive movie, the first thought that might come to one’s mind is TellTale’s The Walking Dead or Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain. However, this is not the case for The Garage Sale. While a tutorial of sorts is required to understand how to navigate the movie, it is a true cinematic experience. The film follows three Continue Reading...

‘Bad Black’ Review – Fantasia Fest 2017

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’ Review – Fantastia Fest 2017

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...

‘I Do…Until I Don’t’ Review

1 Submitted by on Tue, 05 September 2017, 16:59
Modernism in the face of post-modernism. Yes, it’s a heady (and obnoxious) way to start off a review of a romantic comedy, but Lake Bell’s I Do…Until I Don’t is not your traditional romantic comedy. Much more than its genre trappings, the movie wisely uses its runtime and tropes to examine the conflict between the growing movement of individualism versus Continue Reading...

1 Submitted by on Fri, 25 August 2017, 16:59
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...
