NBFF 2014 Review: ‘Cas & Dylan’

Here’s another Newport Beach Film Fest review focused on just one feature that I caught on Monday morning. Cas & Dylan is a Canadian-produced road trip comedy, focused on an odd couple that needs to be enjoyed, if one wants to enjoy this film as a whole. It is a bit cutesy in the way […]

There’s Nothing Fishy About the Joy of Watching Piranha 3D

There was a time when this film was threatened with the possibility of not being released, only to later be threatened with having a release, but not a 3D release.  Fortunately enough, the powers at be made it possible for this film to be release as intended, thus preserving its artistic integrity.  Anyway, there is […]
