The Trust: Movie Reviews

Nicolas Cage delivers what we expect of Nicolas Cage – the facial expressions, the inflection, the wide eyes! Good stuff, really. Overall, the trust is an enjoyable heist movie about two cops who are definitely in over their heads.

21 Jump Street: SXSW Reviews

 I’ll put all my cards on the table right now, I really enjoyed ’21 Jump Street’. I haven’t been a fan of all of the remakes and TV Show reboots that have been taking over theaters for the last decade but this movie was a pleasant surprise. Comedy was definitely the right direction to take the film. 

Killer Joe: SXSW Reviews

 I’m sorry but I just didn’t see it. What started out as a great film really spiraled out of control, and it had so much potential. Immediately after the screening I overheard people enthusiastically referring to the film as a masterpiece but for the moment I’m going to chalk that up to the “festival experience”. 



Lovely Molly: SXSW Reviews

 I’m really not a fan of found-footage films but when I saw that the creators of “The Blair Witch Project” were behind “Lovely Molly” I was anxious to give it a shot. After all these are the guys who pretty much launched an entire wave of found-footage filmmaking. Not to mention that I enjoyed the original Blair Witch, much more than I have anything that has come after it, including the entire Paranormal Activity franchise.


From Nowhere: Movie Reviews

From Nowhere is a powerful and somewhat timely film about three undocumented teenagers and the struggles they face as they are about to graduate highschool in the Bronx.

Don't Think Twice: Movie Reviews

Don't Think Twice is the type of film that doesn't coming along very often. It's especially powerful if you happen to be involved in the arts or with similar aspirations. It's a heartfelt comedy about an Improv group of members who all seem to be on the verge of either giving up or breaking through. The members are all in their 30's with day jobs and as the story unfolds we learn about their connection to each other and how the handle the success of one of the members of the group.


The seventh New York Comic-Con and Anime Convention took place over the past weekend, (Oct. 11th-14th) giving fans of comic books, films, TV, video games, books and anime a full weekend of events. There was something there to entertain even the most hard-to-please fan.

Safety Not Guaranteed: SXSW Reviews

Colin Trevorrow’s Safety Not Guaranteed is a feel-good comedy about a group of misfits looking for love and acceptance. The film uses a touch of movie magic to form an interesting new twist on the same old romantic comedies seen time and again. With a fantastic all-star cast to boot, this was one of the festival’s greatest gems.

Fat Kid Rules The World: SXSW Reviews

Fat Kid Rules The World, based on the K.L. Going book of the same name, marks actor Matthew Lillard’s impressive directorial debut. A microbudget film, it is notably well shot and cast and is simply a very fun time at the movies. It is no big surprise it received the Narrative Spotlight Audience Award at this year’s South By Southwest festival.

Paul Williams Still Alive: SXSW Reviews

Stephen Kessler’s Paul Williams Still Alive is a charming documentary about legendary songwriter and unlikely 70’s icon Paul Williams. A film six years in the making, it’s the story of Stephen’s childhood idol and how the unlikeliest of friendships is born between them. It is a kind of love letter that manages to be captivating and funny while not having to resort to any extravagant Hollywood magic.
