Film Review: Snatched

Going into the screening of “Snatched”, I had no expectations of what I was about to see. I hadn’t seen any tv spots for it and new very little about its lead actress, Amy Schumer. Having now experienced her particular style of comedy and observing the audience members around me; I feel confident in saying that if you are a fan of Amy Schumer, then you’re going to really enjoy this movie, but if you aren’t, then be prepared for a disappointment. “Snatched” has a lot of comedic potential and even made me laugh a few times, but unfortunately, it …

Film Review: Free Fire

Film Review: Free Fire

Free Fire is directed by Ben Wheatley and stars Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, and Cillian Murphy in what I can only describe as one of the most delightfully funny and clever comedies I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing thus far. With sharp writing, a star-studded cast, and a style that’s fresh and inspired, Free Fire gives us a true modern classic.

What is so appealing about this movie for me is the scope. It’s a simple, self-contained story; Two gangs meet up to buy and sell weapons, shots are fired, and it’s kill or be killed. Director and screenwriter …

Film Review: Their Finest

Film Review: Their Finest

As I’m sitting here writing this review, I find that Their Finest still has me scratching my head. Not because of some deeper meaning or subtle themes, but because I genuinely don’t know how to feel about it. It’s has a cast of good actors and had me really thinking about the politics of filmmaking, but the film is undermined by a lack of compelling characters and at times, sub-par writing.

“Their Finest” is directed by Lone Scherfig and stars Gemma Areterton, Sam Claflin, and Bill Nighy as a team of filmmakers during the London bombings, tasked with producing a …

Film Review: Queen of the Desert

I tried writing this review a million different ways but honestly, I just have to be blunt and straightforward because this movie deserves nothing else. “Queen of the Desert” is probably one of the worst movies I’ve seen in recent memory. It boasts an impressive cast that delivers lackluster performances, pretentious storytelling and dialogue, and it’s just plain boring! Let’s go ahead and dive right in.

“Queen of the Desert” is written and directed by Werner Herzog and stars Nicole Kidman as Gertrude Bell, the esteemed archaeologist, and explorer who is inspired by her fiance, played by James Franco, to venture …

Austin Film Festival 2016 Review: Brave New Jersey

Brave New Jersey impeccably balances romance and hilarity on its way to a fabulous world premier at the Austin Film Festival.

Set in a time without cable news or internet, this narrative feature takes place in the small town of Lullaby, New Jersey, on the day before Halloween, October 30th, 1938. The film begins by introducing us to the lovable yet frail Mayor, Clark Hill(Tony Hale), who is in the process of painting the town’s sign to reflect a new accomplishment of sorts. Straight away we can see the lack of respect the township has for it’s mayor, and that theme …

Film Review: The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book once again brings to life, in astonishingly realistic animation, the story which has captivated us all throughout our childhood.

I, like many of you, grew up on all of the Disney classic films. We’re talking Dumbo, Snow White, Beauty and the Best, and of course Bambi. Even with those genuinely loveable films, I always felt  The Jungle Book was the one I enjoyed the most. When I heard a live action film was in the works, I initially had mixed feelings. On one hand, we’ve got a chance for absolute greatness, on the other, a chance to potentially …
