Michel Gondry’s latest is an odd film that displays his creative flair but gets lost in itself by not packing that heartwarming punch it goes for while ditching what it does best, “sweeding”What is “sweeding” you ask? Well that is what this film is all about; “sweeding” is the low budget bare bones reproduction of […]

Cashback

Sean Ellis’ latest is a feature length version of an Oscar nominated short film of the same name and sadly, I imagine it worked far better in the short subject format. This whole film seems dragged out and stretched like butter over too much bread if I can quote Bilbo Baggins. There is some genuinely […]

National Treasure: Book of Secrets

Posted: February 11, 2008 at 2:48 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The follow up to the entertaining box-office hit plays to the dim-witted and oblivious to create a laughable film that some how remains watchable and entertaining to an extent.Checking your mind at the door is a stupid way to appraise a film, but in this case it might be worth it because the film plays […]
