“We gotta do somethin'. I can't tell you what it is, you can never ask me about it after we're done, and we're gonna hurt some people.”

Bank heist film, The Town, written, starring and directed byBen Affleck, is a very confidently made movie, with someone who is clearly better director than actor at its helm. Despite an overall well-paced film, and confidence enough to take the foot off the pedal at times to just tell the story, the action sequences do drag the film down. Watching cars fly about and bullets skim police officers just doesn’t cut it when compared to the rest of The Town, which in general, is a good film. (more…)

“What’s so funny?”

Casey Affleck’s documentary on Joaquin Phoenix’s plan to leave the acting world, and rather enter the rap game, has been in and out of the news ever since it was announced. No one however was completely certain about the legitimacy of these event, with many claiming it was a hoax. Affleck and Phoenix insisted it was the real deal, up until a couple of weeks after its premier when they finally announced it was in fact, all planned. I had the opportunity to watch I’m Still Here with this knowledge, and it still provides a fascinating insight into people’s characters, treatment of others and a whole lot of guts from Phoenix. For the sake of this review, I am going to accept that this has been a hoax, as I still understand there are many suggesting that Casey Affleck has used that idea as a get out clause. (more…)

Don’t listen to the marketing campaign – Catfish isn’t the movie they want you to think it is. The posters ominously warn you to not “let anyone tell you what it is,” and seem to suggest some sort of thriller or horror flick. It’s unfortunate that they resort to making you play guessing games in order to see this film. With a story that’s driven primarily by events occurring on the internet, and a plot that constantly has you questioning the truth from those in front of and behind the camera, Catfish captures life in 2010 in a way that few other movies do. I’ll try to avoid giving away any of the specifics in this review, but it’s impossible to discuss this film without changing the way you’ll perceive it. If you want to go in with no preconceptions at all, stop reading now. Otherwise, read on. (more…)

I finally got a chance to check out the new film Get Low starring Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, & Bill Murray. I went back and read my trailer review afterwards, and I think the trailer did give a really good idea of what to expect. However, this film did surprise me in a lot of ways and it is probably the best movie I’ve seen in theaters since Inception. Let’s take a look. (more…)
