Welcome Matt

https://www.youtube.com/embed/tRhjSCX5kpQ In the feature debut of writer/director Leon Pierce Jr.’s Welcome Matt we are reintroduced to child actor Tahj Mowry (Full House, Smart Guy) but this time as a broken down filmmaker trying to form his newest project while also dealing with a debilitating phobia. The film falls into the slacker comedy vibe akin to … Continue reading Welcome Matt

The Man in the Hat

https://www.youtube.com/embed/aqKpAFdpuyI The majority of the time before watching a film we already know going in what to expect but the real gamble comes when going in blind. You can either sit through 90 minutes of utter boredom or pull out a “winner” and be pleasantly surprised. The latter would most certainly apply to the newest … Continue reading The Man in the Hat

Eat Wheaties!

https://www.youtube.com/embed/IVpVGtaNXGY For no explainable reason the most awkward moments can also be the funniest… albeit with a higher cringe factor. Films like Office Space, Borat or a television series like Curb Your Enthusiasm have the ability to highlight the comedic value in non-traditional scenarios. Adapted from the novel ‘The Locklear Letters’ by Michael Kun, first … Continue reading Eat Wheaties!

Say Your Prayers

https://www.youtube.com/embed/HefQYY2f_7s Through comedy we are able to put subjects into light with a creative spin that otherwise would never garner a laugh. The cross between laughter and complete lewdness is a delicate one because in one false swing you can lose everything you were pushing towards. Writer/director Harry Michell’s (Chubby Funny) newest film Say Your … Continue reading Say Your Prayers

Senior Moment

https://www.youtube.com/embed/RxnkP0UthG8 Age is just a number they say; still young in the mind and soul is what keeps you going. Growing older does not necessarily mean to fade away it just means there are more opportunities and adventures to be had. Suffice it to say that is easier said than done but that does not … Continue reading Senior Moment

Take Me to Tarzana

https://www.youtube.com/embed/YcAbfja3Q8k One of my favorite sub-genres of comedy is the slacker; the personality of someone who generally does not give a f@*k about anything going on around them. For some reason the idea of being that completely free just opens it up to laughter: Clerks, Knocked Up and Stripes are just a few examples. The … Continue reading Take Me to Tarzana

Baby Done

https://www.youtube.com/embed/Fulv5ACoAoE You never know when a film will hit a personal cord, it is something that steers you off course with everything transpiring gaining more in its relatability. The idea of children is always a frightening one, not that I have any but the drastic change in lifestyle I would assume is a complete shock … Continue reading Baby Done

Blithe Spirit (2020)

https://www.youtube.com/embed/wFyLkgneywM It is amusing to see how many ways the genre of ghost/entities can be stretched: from the classic horror to a children’s story or that of a loving romance. Much like clay these stories can be shaped and shifted in any desire you wish but its end result must still be cohesive as a … Continue reading Blithe Spirit (2020)

I’ll Be Around

https://www.youtube.com/embed/OFhxHJUXgk4 The magic behind making films is you can tell any story you want and on top of that in any fashion you wish. There are no rules and with that we can even experience multiple stories at once. Films such as Dazed and Confused, Go, 200 Cigarettes, Can’t Hardly Wait and Smokin’ Aces all … Continue reading I’ll Be Around

5 Years Apart

https://www.youtube.com/embed/yZNI1tGIoT0 Every now and again something we watch on television or on the big screen has the ability to hit close to home. Everyone has a story to tell and it is no shocker when others can relate. As individuals we can feel lost and unsure of our decisions but there is comfort in knowing … Continue reading 5 Years Apart
