Earthbound (SIFF 2012) - Movie Review

With "Earthbound", writer/director Alan Brennan has put together a very charming and intimate science fiction story as well as a sort of tribute to the movies and directors that helped to shape his own creative mind. You feel and see the influences from from Star Wars to Superman yet this remains a very unique story that is absolutely worth watching.

These days, expectations for any movie that has the Pixar name attached to it automatically comes with a set of lofty expectations as, up until recently, the studio could seemingly do no wrong with its animated feature films. Brave is yet another step forward for Pixar as it features the company's first female lead character in the fiery haired Princess Merida who defies a kingdom to change her fate.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - Movie Review

When you look at director Timur Bekmambetov's previous efforts like Nightwatch, Daywatch, and Wanted, you instantly think he would be a perfect fit to make a movie like "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". The examples I mentioned all have a visual style that is a ideal for a movie about how the 16th President of the United States wages a war against the undead while leading the nation towards freedom and equality.

Lola Versus - Movie Review

"Lola Versus" is a very well written and perfectly cast story about a young woman who's life suddenly falls apart just as she thinks it may have reached perfection. From this point forward we see the not so young 20-something struggle to come to terms with love, friendship, family, and most importantly herself.

A while back, it was announced that Ridley Scott would be directing a two movie prequel to his classic "Alien" film and it would also be filmed in 3D.

Game of Werewolves aka Lobos de Arga (SIFF 2012) Movie Review

Spanish film maker Juan Martínez Moreno did not set out to parody or make fun of the horror movie genre although a movie that combines scares with comedy can easily be viewed in that light. "Lobos de Arga", known as "Game of Werewolves" in the United States, successfully pulls off a beastly film that provides just the right amount of scares and laughter to keep fans of both genres happy.

Snow White and the Huntsman - Movie Review

From the moment the first trailer debuted for "Snow White and the Huntsman", the excitement meter was stuck on high as it looked like Universal was taking a story that people primarily know from the classic Disney animated feature and giving it a darker, more action-packed vibe. Oh, and people also wondered what that chick from Twilight was doing in this awesome looking movie.

Xingu (SIFF 2012) - Movie Review

"Xingu" is based on the true story of three brothers looking for adventure who end up changing the course of Brazilian history. Told in dramatic fashion with an emphasis on sweeping visuals that make the jungles as much of a character in the story as any of the people, this movie draws its audience in to the story and makes everyone feel like they are part of a truly historic experience.

Kong Curling (SIFF 2012) - Movie Review

"Kong Curling" is a Norwegian movie that centers around a competitive curling team and the personal struggles they must overcome to maintain their reign as the kings of one of the world's most unique sports.

That may sound like a really odd backdrop for a gripping drama, but this tale is actually a comedy that has no shortage whatsoever of hilarious moments to go alongside what is actually a very heart warming story.
