Blackbird (2012): Brief Review

Blackbird, directed by Jason Buxton (2012), is a film about a teenage boy who is accused and successfully charged with conspiring to commit a school massacre. This film is Canadian and I’m not entirely sure if they have went through a period of satanic panic but this film felt very much like that. The boy listens toContinue reading “Blackbird (2012): Brief Review”

Voice from the Stone: Brief Review

Voice from the Stone, directed by Eric D. Howell (2017), is a film about a boy who traumatically lost his mother and his father hires a caretaker to try to improve his dourer disposition. The way this story is laid out and presented is super smart. It ends as it begins and you never expect it. TheContinue reading “Voice from the Stone: Brief Review”

Wendy (2020): Brief Review

Wendy, directed by Benh Zeitlin (2020), is another retelling of the Peter Pan story in a somewhat modern Southern origin and a more basic Caribbean Neverland. The mechanics are simple and easy to follow for the most part. It’s an imaginative take on the story that keeps you on your toes. It feels more tangible. I couldContinue reading “Wendy (2020): Brief Review”

Little (1995), is a film that continues on from the first installment, Free Willy, and the young man is a little older, has gained closure about his mother, found a brother he didn’t know he had, and saves Willy once again.

Not Since You: Brief Review

Not Since You, directed by Jeff Stephenson (2009), is a film about a man in his early thirties going to a wedding and reconnecting with his college friends and ex-girlfriend.

The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese (2013), is a film about a young man who is determined to be successful, is able to achieve his dreams, and then tear them all down with his own hands. This film was mildly informative, inspiring in certain aspects, and wholly entertaining. Everything came together and the finalContinue reading “The Wolf of Wall Street (2013): Brief Review”

Free Willy: Brief Review

Free Willy, directed by Simon Wincer (1993), is a film about a young misguided boy who befriends an orca by the name of Willy. The story is a little more dirty and a lot less wholesome than I remember. The acting was good enough. I can’t say if the Native American portions are disrespectful or not butContinue reading “Free Willy: Brief Review”

7 Days in Hell: Brief Review

7 Days in Hell, directed by Jake Szymanski (2015), is a film two professional tennis players that play a death match. It is without a doubt one of the dumbest mockumentaries I have watched so far but I did chuckle here and there. There wasn’t a lot of substance to this film. There isn’t really anything toContinue reading “7 Days in Hell: Brief Review”

Explorers: Brief Review

Explorers, directed by Joe Dante (1985), is a film about three kids making contact with an alien species that take them into space to meet the humans they’ve been watching for some time through television, radio, and films. This is a fun and playful 80s family film. You have all the tones and humor of the TheContinue reading “Explorers: Brief Review”
