  • The Fairy 2011

    ★★★½ Added

    This is a very cute film, done in an almost modern day fairytale sort of way. You can tell both of the main stars are either street performers, clowns, or both. Very physical humor and other cute gags are the backbone for this charming film. Dom, a nighttime employee of a small hotel is visited late one night by a woman. She claims to be a Fairy, and calls herself Fiona. They sort of fall for one another, and various hijinks take place throughout the film. Good times, and watch it with someone you like/love.

  • Taken 2 2012

    ★★★½ Added

    Much like the first, it's nonstop mayhem. It's good, but it's an excuse to do the awesome again. It's worth watching, but you really don't need a synopsis to get into this one. Liam Neeson is a badass, his hot daughter is in it, oh and Famke Jannsen.

  • Sound of My Voice 2011

    ★★★★ Added 2

    This film proves that on a small budget, an enlightening story can still happen. This film is very stripped down, but thoroughly pleasing just the same.
    The gist is this:
    A young couple trying to create a documentary on cults gets involved with one of a different type in this drama. Sneaking in after ages of trials to prove their commitment, a young writer and his girlfriend finally are welcomed into the inner sanctum of a group of people. Held inside a place unknown to them, they make several visits and finally meet a very special young lady...with an even more unexpected story to tell...

  • Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life 2010

    ★★★½ Added

    Very artistically envisioned piece about the life of Serge Gainsbourg. His flirtatious relationships with famous women including the gorgeous Brigitte Bardot and his tough time with life are presented herein. Very clever use of figments of his imagination throughout give the film a nifty flavor that separates it from other biographies that end up boring. Definitely a must-see for music fans. Good stuff.
