Head Out To The ‘Slow West’ This July

I actually was able to see this film at a film festival quite recently and was very fond of what I saw. Slow West is a quirky western certainly worth the time of those who enjoy Michael Fassbender or a bit of weirdness in a genre like this. The film is all about two unlikely allies traveling […]

There’s An Offbeat Comedy In The Head Of ‘Frank’ (Movie Review)

A film like Frank is not for everyone, but who cares?  I had a lot of fun with this offbeat comedy that keeps the head of its main character inside a large papier-mâché head.  The film is a comedy, a road movie of sorts, and a look at experimental/indie music culture.  It is also very […]

12 Years A Slave (Blu-ray Review)

12 Years A Slave is a truly gripping story that most certainly serves as an unflinching look at a horrible period of a man’s life, within a time period where injustice against man may have been at its peak in America, but does so with a mood that seems to distinguish itself from other period […]

Comic-Con 2013: 20th Century Fox Panel

Although Fox never listed what was going to be covered during their Comic-Con panel this year, I knew I had to be there because I was pretty sure that The Wolverine would be included and I had a sneaky suspicion that we might get to see some X-Men: Days of Future Past footage.  I was […]
