Most Things or Nearly Nothing

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 28 August 2015 01:18 (A review of Everything or Nothing)




An extensive look into the development of the longest running film franchise. It did a decent job of getting into the people responsible for creating the James Bond character, in writing, producing, directing, acting and family. Impressive considering they had to deal with 60-plus years of story.

Ain't Anybody a Saint in Here

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 27 August 2015 02:50 (A review of Ain't Them Bodies Saints)



A slow burner with exquisite performances from Affleck and Mara. As good as they are I still couldn't get entirely into their characters or their story.

I appreciate a slow-paced film but when the story advances I need it to be worth it and that is not always the case in this crime story with decent cinematography and art direction.

A Tasty Matter

Posted : 2 years ago on 2 August 2015 11:47 (A review of A Matter of Taste: Serving Up Paul Liebrandt)

This certainly was a gastronomical thriller. The documentary actually begins ten years before the release of the film, catching up with the chef a few times a year throughout his career. The direction and editing is nearly as beautiful as the food he makes.
Personal note - Liebrandt reminds me of a chef I used to work with, adding a layer of nostalgia and comedy.

A Review of Our Earth in One Day

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 11 July 2015 03:27 (A review of One Day on Earth)

The challenge of this globalized doc is to get at least one video from each country on Earth that documents a person's day, thus documenting the world for one day. Some of the insets and stories are interesting and the whole project is beautiful.

Never 2 Many Expendables

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 11 July 2015 03:19 (A review of The Expendables 2)

Actually better than the first. From the opening scene to the corny jokes to the ridiculously long finale, they took it all up a notch.

Thoroughly Moderate Millie

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 6 July 2015 01:33 (A review of Thoroughly Modern Millie)

Julie Andrews is one of my favorites, but this is a rare miss. Still entertaining enough, but weak entry into her filmography.

Raspberries!

Central Park Five

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 4 July 2015 04:13 (A review of The Central Park Five)

Aspires to be one at an Erroll Morris or Werner Herzog level of an investigative documentary... but alas falls short.

Snoop Lion > Snoop Dogg

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 22 June 2015 05:17 (A review of Reincarnated)

Snoop Lion is born. This documentary is really good in the first half. Interesting set up, great history of reggae, Rasta, and Snoop; but then it loses its way and I became pretty anxious for an ending, that did, thankfully wrap up nicely.

Scream 4 No More

Posted : 2 years, 2 months ago on 16 June 2015 02:24 (A review of Scream 4)

It brought nothing innovative to the series (except the opening was great) or drama; but it was no doubt entertaining and I think it stuck to the vision of the series and is an improvement on Scream 3. Plus it's better than most slasher films in the last decade

Dead-Ender's Game

Posted : 2 years, 2 months ago on 16 June 2015 01:55 (A review of Ender's Game)



The young leads do a fine job in this VFX heavy attempt at an epic adaptation. However Harrison Ford phones it in and several parts seem rushed, as if it was going through the motions, but not as bad as with 'Hunger Games'.

I'm assuming there won't a be a sequel...
