    ★½

    A courtroom drama loaded with plot holes and countless inaccuracies regarding the law, and processes within the justice system. The subtext of the story is foggy, stripping the film of its purpose as far as continuing any social conversations. I believe the filmmakers had good intentions, but the combination of a lack of research, and lack of context within the story makes for a meaningless film. Director, Anthony Mandler approached this project with an overly ambitious vision. It seems that…

    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…

    ★★

    An unoriginal Canadian crime thriller that evidently draws inspiration from Oscar winning films like Traffic and The Departed. Although the story followed 3 separate stories, the film was structured in a way that was easy to follow. The characters, however, could have been developed better, to allow for more impactful results of the film's events. I felt like we didn't know much about the 3 main characters, other than what was transpiring on screen. While it's mostly uneventful until the…

    No one's gonna help us, but us.

    An inspiring revolutionary legal drama that brings enlightening true events to life regarding one man's refusal to bend to the will of big farma (😏). While the premise isn't very exciting on paper, the screenplay was written in such a manner that allowed Christopher Walken and the rest of the cast to tell the moving story with grace. The farmland scenery was captured very well, featuring beautiful shades of gold and green, and…

    ★★★★★

    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…

    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,…
