    Taking Tiger Mountain

    Taking Tiger Mountain took me awhile to comprehend. If you guys follow my Twitter, you might be able to trace the first handful of times I watched the movie. If you have a calendar, you can see how much I’m slowing down in my own age. That being said,...

    West of Sunshine

    West of Sunshine is a film that proves degenerate gamblers can be found all over the world. The film is a family drama that wants to be a crime thriller. All the while, it’s only effective as a father and son tale about trying to break the mold. Their...

    Adult Life Skills (2016)

    Adult Life Skills is the kind of movie that I see two to three times a month. Usually foreign indie fare about adults acting like children and the others adults that deal with them. There is an actor or two related to a beloved nerd property and this is...
  • If Beale Street Could Talk 10

    If Beale Street Could Talk

    If Beale Street Could Talk has already been adapted once before as Where the Heart is back in 1998. While that French film is quite good, it’s missing something that makes Beale Street gel. If you’re just now reading this, you’re seeing my 10th attempt at trying to solidify...

    Swimming with Men

    Swimming with Men lets you know what it is in the title. It’s a film about men swimming together and competing for greater glory in Canada. There is charm, humor and heart. Other than that, I’m hard pressed to remember it. The film works on a surface level, but...

    Write When You Get Work

    Write When You Get Work is a cliche film about two young people who can’t make it work. The guy breaks into her house and she is wooed by it. All the while, Emily Mortimer tries to have an adult plot about dealing with her husband’s financial crimes. A...

    QUEST OF ALAIN DUCASSE, THE

    “The Quest of Alain Ducasse” follows the elderly chef as he prepares to open a kitchen at the Palace of Versailles, then he travels the world. If you’re a chef or an extreme foodie, then this will be illicit material for you. Outside of that, it’s a lengthy stretch...
