Seven things I learned from my Sedona vacation

Hello folks! Miss me? 😉 Well I just got back from Sedona Sunday night and took an extra day off Monday just to recoup my energy. Being off social media for about a week was quite refreshing. I actually did stay off the blog and Twitter, but believe it or not, I got a lot …

Fall Movie Spotlight: Ridley Scott’s The Martian

You're probably wondering why I'm suddenly blogging about this film, with just two weeks before its US release (October 2). UK folks actually will get this two days sooner on Sept. 30.

It’s been almost 20 years since the last time Johnny Depp starred in a modern gangster film, the vastly underrated Donnie Brasco. He’s now back playing another true life gangster character, James “Whitey” Bulger, the most violent criminal in South Boston. Told in a flashback style, the film starts with the integration of Bulger’s crew …

Mini Reviews: Hitman Agent 47 | Seeking A Friend For the End of the World | The Last Flight

I wrote some of these reviews last week, but just haven't got around to posting 'em. I haven't got much time to write reviews lately, as I'd rather devote my time to my script. But at the same time, I do have something to say about some of the movies I saw, so why not …

Music Break: Far From The Madding Crowd (2015)

I'm in the romantic period drama mood this week as I've been listening to the beautiful scores for Pride & Prejudice, Belle (one of my top 10 scores of 2014)... and this one. Though I wasn't as enamored as I would have with Far From The Madding Crowd (due to the Tom Sturridge miscasting as Troy), I actually want to …

FlixChatter Review: The Age of Adaline (2015)

A lot of the times, I anticipate films based on its director or cast, but in this case, it's the premise that intrigued me. I wish there are more fantasy romance like this made. It seems that a lot of romantic films are either rom-coms or something utterly tragic. Then there's the Nicholas Sparks variety which …
