Top 10 Favorite Films of 2014

I’ve got to first point out that I didn’t forget about my top 5 favorite horror films of the year. That list didn’t happen as I simply didn’t see enough horror films in 2014 worth mentioning. There were certainly a bunch that I wanted to see that had a good shot at making the list,...READ MORE
La moustache movie review

La moustache (2005) [Review]

La Moustache follows the character Marc (Vincent Lindon), who at the very beginning of the film asks his wife (Emmanuelle Devos) what she would think if he shaves his defining mustache.

Croupier movie review

Croupier (1998) [Review]

Croupier is a stylish and and slick character study from director Mike Hodges which is composed of two narratives laid on top of each other, often times leaving us unsure of where one stops and the other begins.

Naploeon Dynamite 10th Anniversary Blu-ray Review

Napoleon Dynamite 10th Anniversary Edition [Blu-ray Review]

Napoleon Dynamite: some call it the voice of an awkward, retro-loving generation, while others simply call it bogus nonsense. I tend to fall in the former category. The film definitely stands out, and while I can see why people don’t “get it,” I think that it’s firmly planted a place in cinematic history. I was...READ MORE
Geography Club movie review

Geography Club (2014) [Review]

High school-based movies are pretty common these days, so it’s not often one comes by that really sets itself apart. In Geography Club, its characters struggle not only to get through high school unscathed but also they attempt to find themselves. The premise of this teen drama seems to offer perhaps something more than the...READ MORE
