BINDLESTIFFS Review 1

BINDLESTIFFS Review

Release Date: June 19, 2012 (Limited) Director: Andrew Edison MPAA Rating: R A “bindlestiff” is hobo who carries a bindle – that is, the cloth bag on the end of stick with the hobo’s belongings in it. What does that have to do with this movie? Nothing. The film also purports to be three teenagers’ several-day living-out of J. D. Salinger’s seminal novel Catcher in the Rye. This, too, has nothing to do with the film’s plot. So what is this movie about? It is a raunchy, profanity-laced stepchild

BULLY Review 8.5

BULLY Review

Both heart-wrenching and maddening, Bully stands as not only a well-crafted documentary, but a call for action against an epidemic that seems to go unnoticed by school boards, law enforcement, and government officials. It’s a film that simply needs to be seen by the masses, and looked upon as a testament that change must occur.

‘Piranha 3DD’ Review 1.5

‘Piranha 3DD’ Review

Two years ago audiences and critics alike were pleasantly surprised when they went to go see the remake of the cult classic 70's flick Piranha. The film was funny, clever, outrageously violent, and made very good use of 3D technology. Clocking in a very respectable 73 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and banking over $83 million worldwide, the film was a sleeper hit. Of course, with the success of the first, a sequel was inevitable, and most people surmised it would not be as a critical or commercial success, but what people didn't know, was how horrendous it would actually be.

BERNIE Review 9

BERNIE Review

Richard Linklater’s latest film appeared on the festival circuit almost a year ago and finally made it to theaters everywhere last week.

Based on Skip Hollandsworth’s 1998 Texas Monthly article about Carthage, Texas, resident Bernie Tiede, Bernie is told in a docudrama style.
