    Best of Enemies 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Nov, 2015

    More admirable than amazing, this documentary captures the famous and contentious debates between conservative William F. Buckley and liberal Gore Vidal during the 1968 presidential conventions that helped set the stage for where political punditry has gone since. The footage of the debates themselves are fascinating; the talking head interviews are a bit less so. But it's edited together effectively and the film does a solid job of documenting one of the most influential events to happen in American journalism during a very strife-ridden era of history.

Tessa Thompson shines in her supporting role as the love interest and Jordan matches up well with Stallone, both delivering some of the best work in…

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Apr, 2012 1

    Being that I am an entertainment reporter, it is very rare that I can go into a film knowing almost nothing about it. Before 2012, the last time I was able to do so was Cloverfield; with Cabin in the Woods however I was determined to do so. I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…
