SDCC 2017: Bright looks awesome

Bright was the panel I was honestly most interested in. From the moment it was announced, I’ve been following the production. Anything with director David Ayer has my interest.

‘It Comes At Night’ And Brings Dread (Movie Review)

The use of space, darkness and an ominous red door are all great assets for It Comes at Night. This is the second film from director Trey Edward Shults, who arrived on the scene with 2015’s Krisha, another film dealing with family-related intensity.

Loving (Blu-ray Review)

The historical drama surrounds an event that led to the invalidation of state laws prohibiting interracial marriage. This seems like the typical kind of film to automatically receive awards consideration. Regardless of if it does or doesn’t, Nichols is […]

There’s something pretty cool about seeing an indie director with a knack for human drama take on a genre film. Okay, so that applies to almost any newbie director handed the keys to a franchise, but how about one who has developed the story himself and is allowed by a studio to make such a […]
