  • Drinking Buddies 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 12 Dec, 2014

    There are two ways to approach Drinking Buddies in my mind.
    The first is too begrudgingly call it out on its slightness that seems to be inherent to every film in the Mumblecore genre. Although it explores relationships in danger of falling apart this tale about workers (Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson) in a brewery and their significant other who feel unsatisfied in their relationships never really goes too deep when it comes to characterization or a tight narrative.

    "Week 1 of the Adapted April Challenge"

    Film 3 of the Top 50 Horror Project

    I was very excited that my first assignment was to be Candyman , a movie that I wanted to see for a long time. I had heard very much about it, but mostly that it was an important horror movie everyone interested in horror should see. So I knew nothing specific about it and just figured it would be an usual horror flick about an…
