Jurassic World Trailer Premiere Plus New Images!

“Clever girl.”  Well this is more exciting than I was expecting.  Jurassic World is coming and while I may not have many nice things to say about the previous Jurassic Park sequels (I like 3 more than The Lost World though), I still have a continue interest in dinosaurs and the world that these films exist in.  Now we […]

‘Drinking Buddies’ Have A Fun, Improv-Heavy, Good Time (Movie Review)

Drinking Buddies is a step forward in the film world for writer/director Joe Swanberg, who has specialized in making films of the mumblecore variety.  To catch some up on what that term means, the concept of mumblecore revolves around independent films that are very low budget, largely improvised by the performers (generally amateur actors), and […]

‘Safety Not Guaranteed’, But It’s Enjoyable

Earlier in the year I saw Sound of My Voice, which pushed the limits in terms of being a low budget film that had time travel as a plot device (ok, so Primer is one that may have it beat).  Safety Not Guaranteed is a comedy/drama that does not aspire to be an ambitious film […]
