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

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

APARTMENT 143 Review 3.5

APARTMENT 143 Review

I watched this film four times and wrote four different reviews with four different ratings.  It’s quite unnerving for a self-proclaimed know-it-all to waiver so about his first impression.  I don’t know whether to produce a lengthy rant or a short shoulder shrug.  So, here goes nothing.
