  • Interview With Meyrick Murphy From The Walking Dead

    Welcome to Movie Vine, Meyrick Murphy! It’s a pleasure to have you. So, I must tell you right up front that I’ve become a very big fan of yours since you appeared on The Walking Dead. You were on the show for a short time but you made a huge impact. In fact, your character, […]

  • Encore of Tony Duran : Review

    I have to admit that if I went purely off the trailer alone, I don’t think I would have tried The Encore of Tony Duran. This isn’t to say the trailer is particularly bad. It’s the fact that indie films can be very hit and miss when it comes to heartfelt dramas, with many missing […]

  • Ender’s Game : A Beautiful Thing to Behold

    For Ender’s Game, I went in completely blind to the storyline. I didn’t read the book so that I would retain that first initial feeling of awe this trailer gave me. This is another movie that benefited from excellent marketing. The trailers only tell us so much, hinting at the enormity of the world building […]

  • Sunlight Jr. : Digs into Places that Hurt

    Each time I sat down to work on my review for Sunlight Jr., I found myself stuck on the first line. How do I describe this movie? How do I talk about it? It felt too honest for me to discuss glibly. It also made me incredibly uncomfortable even though the people in the movie […]

  • Gravity : an Excruciating and Beautiful Film

    There is a well-known saying that has preceded nearly every horror movie set in space seemingly since we figured out that space is unending and that saying is, “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, which is by no means a horror movie but could have been, tells us point-blank how […]

  • On The Road Movie : Review

    Despondent with bright flashes of humor, On The Road is the epitome of a beatnik movie. Based on the book of the same name, it tells the story of Sal Paradise, a writer who isn’t writing, seemingly stopped up after his father’s passing. In a time where artistry is like a life requirement, he’s left […]

  • Elysium : Movie Review

    Elysium has all the signs of being a movie to talk about, whether you liked it or not. It’s also one of those movies that doesn’t require you to like it as much as it requires you to sift through the myriad of issues it’s addressing. It’s also worth mentioning that at the time Elysium […]

  • Review : Hello Herman

    School massacres are excessively hard to portray when Columbine still hangs over our heads, years and years later, and the copy cat attacks that have happened since. Not only that, but to touch on these topics brings a certain sensationalistic feeling that can go only two ways: either the director will find their footing and […]

  • The East : Review

    The East is a well-crafted, beautifully-shot story about justice for humanity’s crimes against nature – and thus against itself – but it seems to me that it is predominantly a story about the individual. Change, after all, begins with one person doing the right thing. The film opens with choppy, home video footage of a […]

  • Interview With Prolific Character Actor Lew Temple pt 2

    Lew Temple, most recognized as Axel from The Walking Dead, is an actor with the ability to sink into his roles and become a completely different person, stamping his own mark on all the characters he portrays. With a variety of work under his belt, he shows no sign of slowing down and continues to […]
