Updates on Hearts Want short film & quick review on The Lost City of Z

Hello folks! Been a while since I wrote anything for the blog. Well actually the last post I wrote was on the eve of filming Hearts Want, my short film… I published it past midnight and my hubby just got done printing my cast/crew contracts that night, if you can believe that!

MSPIFF Review: In Between (2017)

Directed By: Maysaloun Hamoud Written By: Maysaloun Hamoud Runtime: 1 hour 36 minutes There aren't many female-led films in Hollywood that aren't cheesy romantic comedies or Lifetime Network-levels of stupid femme fatale stories. Fortunately, there are some that break the mold, including In Between. Writer and director Maysaloun Hamoud has created a film featuring three women …

MSPIFF Review: The Sounding (2017)

Directed By: Catherine Eaton Written By: Catherine Eaton, Bryan Delaney Runtime: 93 minutes Writing a story where the main character communicates solely through Shakespeare quotes could be disastrous. In the wrong hands, it could feel like a cheesy theater warm-up or a high school English assignment. Fortunately Catherine Eaton, co-writer/director/star of the independent film The Sounding, …

FlixChatter Review: The Fate of the Furious (2017)

The first Fast and Furious film came out 18 years ago and no one would have predicted that it would became one of the most successful franchises in Hollywood. Heck, when I saw the third sequel The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, the worst in the series, I thought for sure we won’t be …

Guest Review: GIFTED (2017)

Directed By: Marc Webb Written By: Chris Evans, Mckenna Grace, Octavia Spencer, Jenny Slate, Lindsay Duncan Runtime: 1 hr 41 minutes I walked out of Gifted loudly bemoaning Chris Evans’ lack of acting skills when I heard a man behind me say something even more controversial: that Gifted suffers from a “simple plot”. No, sweet idiot, it …

Guest Review: Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (2016)

Written/Directed By: Ang Lee Cast: Joe Alwyn, Mackenzie Leigh, Steve Martin, Garrett Hedlund Runtime: 1 hr 53 minutes It is frustrating when a film has all the ingredients to be brilliant but ends up just a good movie. The story of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (2016) is an original and painfully satirical study of post-traumatic stress disorder …
