  • LIGHTHOUSE, THE 1

    LIGHTHOUSE, THE

    THE LIGHTHOUSE REVIEWED “The Lighthouse” plays upon something that might work better in a book than film. Cerebral dread doesn’t exactly engage the visual need that many have with film. Watching two men debate theological concerns and personal drives doesn’t tug at the brain. What it does do is...
  • GARDENER, THE 3

    GARDENER, THE

    THE GARDENER REVIEWED “The Gardener” is a documentary about Cabot Garden near Quebec City. While it’s a fun journey through the intricacies  f gardening and what it takes to maintain such work, it also has very limited narrative focus. This is always a weird spot for me, as I...
  • DARKNESS REIGNS 5

    DARKNESS REIGNS

    DARKNESS REIGNS REVIEWED “Darkness Reigns” is about how easy it is to summon a demon to finish your film. There’s a lot of inside Hollywood talk, but it suits the film. What plays awfully light produces a fun horror tale that ends almost as quickly as it began. Casper...
  • SOFT MATTER 7

    SOFT MATTER

    SOFT MATTER REVIEWED “Soft Matter” was weird. It’s a body horror movie about street art and carnage coming together. The character names are inconsequential, as this film forces you endure 72 minutes of just eye-popping visuals. I know that some readers don’t dig movies that are all aesthetics, but...
  • TAG-ALONG 2, THE 9

    TAG-ALONG 2, THE

    THE TAG-ALONG 2 REVIEWED “The Tag-Along 2” cements something for me. I don’t get the recent Asian horror movement. Missing kids, water spirits and various other things leave me cold. It might be a cultural thing, but I find that most Eastern horror from about 1997-present is just flat....
  • FAKE BLOOD 11

    FAKE BLOOD

    FAKE BLOOD REVIEWED “Fake Blood” is a found footage/semi-mockumentary movie about two directors confronting a bizarre fan. There’s an issue of violence that seems to require knowledge of previous work. It’s never quite provided. Anyways, the idea is that the central characters of the piece are filmmakers that go...
  • BLACK HOLLOW CAGE 13

    BLACK HOLLOW CAGE

    BLACK HOLLOW CAGE REVIEWED Black Hollow Cage would’ve made for a far more interesting short than a feature. Did the evil dad turn the mom into a dog and rip off the daughter’s arm? What is the hang-up over the arm? That weird black cube is fascinating, but I’m...
  • MILE MARKER 15

    MILE MARKER

    MILE MARKER REVIEWED “Mile Marker” tackles PTSD in a way I rarely see tackled. Treat it as a public health issue and explore all avenues to beat it. Too often, we see the results and never any solutions. Spurred on by the 2014 death of his battle buddy, director...
  • 2047: VIRTUAL REVOLUTION 17

    2047: VIRTUAL REVOLUTION

    2047: VIRTUAL REVOLUTION REVIEWED “2047: Virtual Revolution” is a fascinating concept. A group of hackers are attacking virtual worlds where future societies flee to thrive. Unfortunately, these attacks have been successful. A crafty detective is assigned to their case, as he fights his way through how much is corporate...

    CEZANNE ET MOI

    CEZANNE ET MOI REVIEWED “Cezanne at Moi” is a story of childhood friends Paul Cezanne and Emile Zola. The film follows them through decades around France and most of...

    DARE TO BE WILD

    DARE TO BE WILD REVIEWED “Dare to be Wild” isn’t the most exciting film. While I get that Mary Reynolds’ win at the Chelsea Flower Show was impressive, I...
