MOVIE REVIEW: “Birdman” will surely be an Oscar favorite.

“Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” confused me when  first viewing it’s trailer, I couldn’t gauge how it was going to turn out, simply because I couldn’t clock the genre. It didn’t look comedy, nor drama and it couldn’t be an action film with it’s budget. I considered the film an enigma for many months before […]

“Gracepoint” episode seven’s circumstances become dire.

It’s no secret that I really like “Gracepoint”, I think it’s a sleek, thrilling show that uses it’s character arc and setting to the best extent. The show has been a slow burn up to the climax of the series, and episode seven is the dire sense of hopelessness we’ve been waiting for all season. […]

Then it showed at film festivals, and the reviews started coming in,;”John Wick” was supposed to be good, really good, […]
