    You gotta be dumb to be smart.

    An artistically shot indie dramedy with an interesting concept and unique characters, featuring some hilarious and thought provoking dialogue. The editing is a little over the top, but doesn't take away from the genuine, youtube-like camera work. Andrew Garfield is brilliant in this film. He understood the role, and how important his ability to captivate an audience would be to this character. His wild antics are charming and hilarious, as he seemingly just…

    ★★★★★

    A hilarious, exciting animated comedy with brilliant artwork brought to life by fantastic direction and a world class voice-over cast. The story-line is completely original for this type of film and all of the plot points are remarkably creative. This movie has it all. A heartfelt message, hilarious and original characters, and visuals that will keep you engaged throughout. The dynamics between characters were as developed as an award winning, live action drama film. I typically don't expect much out…

    ★★★½

    A Hitchcock influenced mystery thriller with exceptional sound production and vintage cinematography. There was some out of place dialogue scattered throughout, but the rest of screenplay was written with an anxious type of suspense that will push the audience to the edge of their seats. There are some predictable elements to the story, but not enough that would suggest this film is unoriginal.

    Amy Adams was goddamn perfect. The viewer will empathize with her, worry about her, scream at her,…

    ★★½

    A questionably paced, suspenseful cyber crime thriller featuring purposeful story telling methods and confusing dialogue. Way too many scenes ended with a freeze frame which then faded into a an image of the next scene's location with text. It just felt over the top as an editing decision, and didn't necessarily help the pace of the movie. The screenplay was written in such a way that generates excitement around the protagonist's anxiety ridden situation, and offers details on a not…

    Things Heard & Seen

    ★★½

    A slow burning horror drama with a slight spin on the usual haunted house storyline. There were moments where action packed events were shown off camera or not at all, which left a lot to be desired as far as visuals. There were some nice shots of the scenery, but other than that the camera work was below average.

    The supporting cast were all sufficient, but Amanda Seyfried was exceptional. She was able to assist the already well written screenplay,…

    ★★★★

    An absolutely brutal superhuman/fighting movie that delivers on everything it promises to video game fans and followers of the franchise. The dialogue is weak, the acting is okay, and the character development is saved for Cole Young, but that's not what you're buying here and most of us know that. The choreography is incredibly detailed, allowing every fight scene to be shot perfectly. It's necessary to state that I feel like there was the perfect amount of fighting in this…
