Neighbors Review

It's frat humor. Nothing more and nothing less. It may not keep as well as 'Animal House' or 'Old School' but 'Neighbors' holds its own within the sub-genre of crude, raunchy humor and fans are in store for more than a handful of  laughs. 

David Gordon Green’s ‘Joe’

As a fan of David Gordon Green I'm admittedly biased. I've enjoyed most of his work and thoroughly enjoyed 2013's Prince Avalanche so I jumped at the opportunity to catch Joe at this year's SXSW Film Festival, and I was not disappointed. 

The Guest

Every once in a while you stumble across a film that completely surprises you. I'd seen Wingard's previous film 'You're Next' and, although it was entertaining in its own right, it didn't prepare me for the guilty pleasure that 'The Guest' would be.

Oculus Movie Review

Oculus, directed by Mike Flanagan, is a psychological-horror film that tells the story of two siblings revisiting their past to to prove that an antique mirror is responsible for the death of their parents. Kaylie (Karen Gillian) is convinced that a supernatural force within the mirror is responsible for the crimes her bother Tim (Brenton Thwaites) was convicted of. 

Chef Review

There's something about Chef that stays with you long after the movie has ended. It's a fine movie, well made, well acted, etc., but when the credits roll we're left somewhat of an aftertaste, an unshakeable idea that the movie isn't wholly satisfying. There were charming moments for sure, and interesting scenes, although, in the end, Chef is not greater than the sum of its parts. Jon Favreau is a more than competent director so it left me scratching my head as to why the film didn't pack as much of a punch.
