    Natural Selection

    Natural Selection directed by Robbie Pickering (2011), is a film about a woman who finds out her religious husband is donating his specimen to a sperm bank when she believes she cannot conceive after he is rushed to the hospital.

    Into the Storm

    Into the Storm directed by Steven Quale (2014), is a film about two separate groups of people weathering a storm together. The film definitely feels like a less emotional but higher stakes twister. The story is basic at best while relying on the elements within the scenes to create any tension rather than the relying on the acting and characters to create tension. The acting was ok overall when you average out all of the acting. The effects weren't as bad…
