I picked up the new Blair Witch game for PC this weekend and as I love when my love of film and my love of video games cross over, I decided to make a video review of my thoughts about the

THE FANATIC Review

Durst’s film shows a respectable ability to communicate what happens when the fantasy of celebrity breaks down on both sides of the spectrum.

KILLERMAN Review

Suffering from an overcomplicated script, Killerman is not a blockbuster but could serve as a springboard for Liam Hemsworth’s trajectory to leading man.

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO Blu-ray Review

Despite this notable lack of features, I’m happy to have this in my collection regardless, however until a special edition comes out, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a film that’s best suited for a digital purchase

Tone-Deaf 1 5

TONE-DEAF Review

Tone-Deaf is still a fun little thriller featuring two strong leads in Crew and Patrick, but the lack of commitment of its primary components prevents this from being anything but a mediocre affair.

Cruising_3 8

CRUISING Arrow Blu-ray Review

As someone mildly obsessed with this time in New York’s history, I was already drawn to Cruising, but the fantastic remaster and commentary make this a must-buy despite the other bonus content being somewhat scant.  

Tigers Are Not Afraid 6 7.5

TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID Review

Tigers Are Not Afraid is an excellent piece of genre cinema that is, at times, as beautiful as it is horrific, presenting a new and wholly unique perspective of how pervasive the drug cartels are in Mexico and specifically how they can affect all those surrounding them.

Burn6 6.5

BURN Review

Burn, written and directed by Mike Gan, takes some surprising twists over the course of a night but ultimately sets up characters who have less depth than they should. 

Driven 7

DRIVEN Review

Though the central stories of Nick Hamm’s Driven may not be fully fleshed out, the film still manages to give us a satisfying snapshot into the life of John DeLorean, with the help of great performances by Jason Sudeikis and Lee Pace.

Alice-Sweet-Alice 9

ALICE, SWEET ALICE Arrow Blu-ray Review

With this robust amount of content – combined with the fantastic restoration, the Arrow Video release for Alice, Sweet Alice is absolutely top notch and one that I highly recommend picking up.

The Journalist_main 7.5

Japan Cuts 2019: THE JOURNALIST Review

With a narrative that feels uncomfortably ripped from the headlines, The Journalist reinforces the need for a critical and independent media through the tense lens of a bureaucratic thriller.

Divine Fury0003 5

Fantasia 2019: THE DIVINE FURY Review

The Divine Fury is an entertaining, yet slight action-horror film that, while containing a few thunderous moments, doesn’t quite stick the landing or embrace its great concept.

PIRANHAS Review

Claudio Giovannesi’s Piranhas is a sensitive portrayal of crime-family culture in Naples but suffers from a script struggling to make its characters as real as the violence.
