  • 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 […]

  • Songs for Amy : Experience the Highs and Lows of Love and Friendships

    Songs for Amy is a romantic comedy and drama tale filmed in the gorgeous backdrop of Galway, Ireland backed by a lot of great music. The story follows the relationship between Sean O’Malley (Sean Maguire) and Amy (Lorna Anderson). Sean Maguire’s excellent performance will have you feeling as if this is his true life story. […]

  • 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 […]

  • Review: “Gravity” Is A Cinematic Experience Like No Other

    In the age of the mega-blockbuster, films like Pacific Rim and The Avengers get by on being big, colorful spectacles that are light on intelligence but big on explosions and a sense of fun. I enjoyed both of those films, and I’ve oohed and ahhed at the giant battles and felt the adrenaline rush like everyone else. I have […]

  • 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 […]

  • Don Jon : Movie Review

    Don Jon is a very insightful look at a romantic comedy and coming of age movie! Joseph Gordon-Levitt did exceptionally well on his directorial debut in making you think about how men and women have preconceived ideas about love and making love. As women we look for Prince Charming to ride in on that white […]

  • Theresa Is a Mother – Review

    One of the most touching and straight to the heart films, Theresa Is a Mother brings drama and human emotion to the front with its story, that follows C. Fraser Press, who also directs, as she portrays Theresa McDermott. A woman who is having quite the unfortunate time in her life. This film is a […]
