Movie Review – Frankenweenie

Director: Tim Burton Starring: Charlie Tahan, Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara Year: 2012 After the success of The Nightmare Before Christmas in 1993 and The Corpse Bride in 2005, Tim Burton penned another spooky tale as part of the same, twisted universe, 2012’s Frankenweenie.  His gift for the creepy but lovable tale cannot be

Movie Review – Good Time

Director: Benny & Josh Safdie Starring: Robert Pattinson, Benny Safdie, Jennifer Jason Leigh Year: 2017 Good Time is a combination of Drive, Victoria, The Rover, Training Day, and Trainspotting, an unpredictable, inner-city adventure that definitely won’t have a happy ending.  When I saw the trailer, I called the film an indie lovechild of The Rover

Movie Trailer – Please Stand By

Director: Ben Lewin Starring: Dakota Fanning, Toni Collette, Alice Eve Release: January 26th, 2018 From the guy who brought us The Sessions, which was OK, comes a road trip comedy/touching drama about how autism affects our families?  I’m not buying it.  Bad director, odd story, and honestly these actresses aren’t that great.  I wouldn’t trust
