  • URBAN HYMN 1

    URBAN HYMN

    URBAN HYMN REVIEWED “Urban Hymn” is a film set during the London Riots of 2011. Remember that, as the film seems to forget about it in 10 minutes flat. The rest of the film is quiet social worker bonding with abandoned child over music and life. The two bring...
  • LINDSEY STIRLING: BRAVE ENOUGH 3

    LINDSEY STIRLING: BRAVE ENOUGH

    LINDSEY STIRLING: BRAVE ENOUGH REVIEWED “Brave Enough” works, but with limitations. While it’s intriguing to see YouTube Red debut documentaries of this caliber, it also brings up the low bar being established for the online platform. The documentary produced by Magical Elves isn’t anything revolutionary. However, viewers will enjoy...
  • FIST 2 FIST 2: WEAPON OF CHOICE 5

    FIST 2 FIST 2: WEAPON OF CHOICE

    WEAPON OF CHOICE REVIEWED “Weapon of Choice” feels like a Golden Harvest movie of old. Well, mix that together with the crime movies that Japan was dropping in the late 1990s. Then, flip that with the action staging that you expect from a talent like Jino Kang. Kang doesn’t...
  • HARRY BENSON: SHOOT FIRST 7

    HARRY BENSON: SHOOT FIRST

    HARRY BENSON: SHOOT FIRST REVIEWED “Harry Benson: Shoot First” is another documentary that turns into fan worship by the end of the 10 minute marker. While we get the broadest sense of what the man accomplished, nobody bothers to ask about why he didn’t take a specific focus. Hell,...
  • SILVER SKIES 9

    SILVER SKIES

    SILVER SKIES REVIEWED “Silver Skies” wasn’t what I expected. Well, the film started as I expected. Plucky old people about to be thrown out on the streets find a way to beat the odds. Then, you realize that their leader has Alzheimer’s and the other one is kinda rapey....
  • LONELY BOYS 11

    LONELY BOYS

    LONELY BOYS REVIEWED “Lonely Boys” is a great film about losers. People automatically associate the modern loser with the kind of folks you see in Alexander Payne movies. It’s not fair off, but you don’t have to be an awful person to be a loser. This film explores that...
  • APOCALYPSE CHILD 13

    APOCALYPSE CHILD

    APOCALYPSE CHILD REVIEWED “Apocalypse Child” jumps a lot between Tagalog and English. Once I got past that, I got to see a quiet film about characters healing in an under-seen locale. After Dave Chappelle shared his views on The Philippines, I feel that we’re all good not having an...
  • BLINDSIDED 15

    BLINDSIDED

    BLINDSIDED REVIEWED “Blindsided” is a rather fun action oriented brutal assault. It plays like an urban Zatoichi, but it lacks a greater finesse. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as close quarters plays a certain way. Roger Yuan and Clayton Barber stage the fights in a way that feel...
  • DEPARTURE 17

    DEPARTURE

    DEPARTURE REVIEWED “Departure” has to be about the 100th teen drama that I’ve watched in the last 6 months. While LGBTQ films require a certain degree of respect, I was left a little confused by this film. I get that it’s basically a tale about a young man making...
