MOVIE REVIEW: mother!

In Movies, Reviews by David Grimes0 Comments

Mother! is the new film from visionary director Darren Aronofsky, and the best I can say is it is definitely his vision. I saw this film on a Tuesday afternoon, and here it is Thursday night and I still can’t quite put into words what I saw. This film is wholly unique to Aronofsky, no one could have done what …

MOVIE REVIEW: American Assassin

In Movies, Reviews by David Grimes0 Comments

American Assassin is the new film from director Michael Cuesta (he directed the criminally underseen Kill the Messenger) and stars Dylan O’Brien and the great Michael Keaton. I admit, I was not really excited about this movie or really knew what it was about (obviousness aside). I saw one trailer over the summer and while I was intrigued, it didn’t …

MOVIE REVIEW: Drone

In Movies, Reviews by David Grimes0 Comments

No matter where you fall on the spectrum, it’s hard to avoid any sort of political discussion. Whether on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even Snapchat (somehow I’m sure), you can’t avoid it. The last time we saw such fervor was during the Cold War, which Hollywood took and we saw the explosion of the political thriller. The Manchurian Candidate, Three …

Let’s take a trip back in time, shall we? Let’s go back to the 1990’s, a time where the economy was doing well, we have relative peace, the movie industry was barreling forward with new technology, and we were introduced to Hollywood’s new “It” man, Casper Van Dien. Van Dien first gained recognition for his role in the space action …

MOVIE REVIEW: Stray Bullets

In Movies, Reviews by David Grimes3 Comments

On the surface, Stray Bullets seems like a pretty run of the mill crime thriller. Two teenage boys get tangled with three criminals they just happened to come across in upstate New York. That all seems pretty standard as I was watching this film, but soon after the credits rolled and I started doing my research to write this review …

MOVIE REVIEW: Drifter

In Movies, Reviews by David Grimes1 Comment

Despite what some may say or think, I am a big horror fan. I love a good horror flick that can chill me to the bone, make me question every creek and bump in my house, and wake me up several times during the night because the film got to me in such a way that it just crept into …

MOVIE REVIEW: Go North

In Movies, Reviews by David Grimes1 Comment

I feel like sometimes when I watch movies and review them for this site, I’m too hard them. Maybe I’m expecting too much from these smaller, independent movies, or maybe a lot of them I don’t fully understand.  For Go North, I really wanted to have as open of a mind as possible and really experience this film. Never mind …

MOVIE REVIEW: Counter Clockwise

In Movies, Reviews by David Grimes3 Comments

Have you ever heard that saying, “Your eyes are bigger than your plate”? That’s pretty much how I sum up Counter Clockwise, a movie that try to be bigger than it was, but ultimately had nothing new to say. It’s not to say this is bad, not at all, it just tried to do more than it could. Counter Clockwise …
