Byzantium (SIFF 2013) - Movie Review

Once upon a time, director Neil Jordan brought Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire to movie screens and gave mainstream movie going audiences their first taste of a more modern vampire tale.

100 Bloody Acres (SIFF 2013) - Movie Review

Every so often, a movie comes along that captures the world's attention and changes how movies are made forever. 100 Bloody Acres is not one of those movies. What you will get from this Australian independent film is a mixed bag of ingredients that includes humor, gore, scares, action, and even a little romance all of which might leave you a little soiled by the the time its all said and done.

World War Z - Movie Review

World War Z is loosely based on the wildly popular novel of the same name which was written by Max Brooks who just happens to be the son of famous director Mel Brooks. That little known fact doesn't really have anything to do with the movie, but I thought it was cool and worth mentioning so get over it. Brad Pitt isn't just the name you will see on the marquee, but he is also largely credited with getting this movie made as it has been a passion project of his for some time.

The Blue Umbrella (SIFF 2013) - Short Film Review

The Blue Umbrella is a short film from Disney's Pixar Studios that will be seen in front of Monsters University during its theatrical release.

If all Pixar ever did was put out short films, they would still be one of the most respected movie studios in the world. From Luxo, Jr and Geri's Game to BURN-E and La Luna, they have created such an amazing catalog of short films, it makes you wonder just how they keep doing it. If you were able to pose that question to anyone at Pixar, they would tell you that the story is what comes first over anything else and The Blue Umbrella is absolutely no exception.

Fateful Findings is the brainchild of Neil Breen who wrote, produced, directed, acted in, catered, and did just about anything else you can think of to get this movie made.

V/H/S 2 (SIFF 2013) - Movie Review

VHS 2 is the follow up to the original film that became an instant cult classic and promises to be even scarier than its predecessor. The first VHS movie created a new twist on the found footage sub genre of horror movies by compiling several short films into one feature length movie with an overarching storyline that ties the whole thing together.

This is the End - Movie Review

Okay, seriously. Look at the poster for This is the End and tell me you don't think its going to be hilarious. For my part, all you have to do is say James Franco and Seth Rogen are in the movie and I'm down to see it. Then you throw in Hill, Baruchel, Robinson, and McBride and my expectation level goes even higher. Add in the fact that Rogen wrote and directed the film with longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg and you now have a formula for success that will not be denied.

The East (SIFF 2013) - Movie Review

Rising Hollywood star Brit Marling not only plays the lead role in The East, but she also co-wrote and helped produce the movie that has so far received nothing but high praise.
