GUT Review

Gut is not a film for everyone. The slow, deliberate pace will frustrate some of the more mainstream horror fans, and the decidedly low-budget indie feel will turn some people off as well.  For others like myself however, these aspects of the film set it apart from the typical run-of-the-mill slasher, and elevate it something different and more interesting than most horror flicks.

RUST AND BONE Review 9

RUST AND BONE Review

There are a lot of moments in Rust and Bone, the new film from French director Jacques Audiard, that leave the viewer utterly dejected. These beautifully crafted and framed moments continue to beat down the viewer and the characters, themselves, over the course of the film's 120 minute run time.

LINCOLN Review 8

LINCOLN Review

There is a moment very near the beginning of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln that made me literally roll my eyes. My disdain for Spielberg’s recent work is not a secret, and it’s mostly because of the overwrought, shoe-horned, out of place schmaltz he forces into his later works.

ARGO Review 8

ARGO Review

Argo, the new Ben Affleck directed flick, is just as powerful and just as amazing as his previous efforts with The Town, and Gone Baby Gone. A film about courage and bravery, Argo manages to pull at heartstrings, cause you to sit forward in your seat, and gasp with excitement. Bottom line, Argo’s got it all.
