The Distinguished Citizen: Trailer

— by BEV QUESTAD — Excelente! This Oscar nominee from Argentina for best foreign film is brimming with insight about the human condition. Daniel Mantovani (Oscar Martínez), an Argentinian ex-pat, is awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. A bit like Bob Dylan, he thinks he won’t go. B[...]

The Ornithologist: Teaser

— by BEV QUESTAD — This year’s Portland International Film Festival features an odd entry from Portugal’s Joao Pedro Rodrigues. “The Ornithologist” is as weird as its screeching music. Set in the scenic grandeur of mountainous Portugal, a bird watcher (Paul Hamy) gets frustra[...]

Office Christmas Party: Three Trailers

— by JESSIKA OWENS — Anybody who has ever had an office job can probably safely say they have fantasized about letting loose and just destroying the office in a drunken rage whilst watching co-workers act like bumbling fools. Perhaps I’m speaking for myself, but it sounds fun in my[...]

Jenny’s Wedding: Official Trailer

— by JESSIKA OWENS — The cinema has always been a great platform to explore the dysfunctions that dwell within family units. There is an overwhelming abundance of films dealing with family dynamics which makes it extremely difficult for new films exploring the subject to bring anything n[...]

Confidential: Trailer

— by JESSIKA OWENS — One of the more fascinating relationships often portrayed in film and TV is that between a psychiatrist and their patient. I imagine this is because the situation and circumstances allow the patient to be raw and vulnerable, and on screen, that is enthralling. I ofte[...]

Jem and the Holograms: Official Trailer

— by JESSIKA OWENS — One of the most important things to me when looking at a film is the music. Of course, the cast and crew are the first things I look at and are what ultimately decide my excitement factor for a film, but the music is a vital piece of that puzzle. […][...]

The Atticus Institute: Trailer

— by JESSIKA OWENS — As a horror fan girl, I have some rules when it comes to horror films. By rules, what I mean, is there are certain things that legitimately frighten me and I have a hard time dealing with. There aren’t many, but there are three. Creepy children in scary movies [...]

Lucky Them: Trailer

— by JESSIKA OWENS — There are a couple actors out there, and I think this rings true for everybody, whose films you will go see regardless of what it is, even if you have no idea what it’s really about. For me, Toni Collette is one of those actors. I am insanely biased when [&hell[...]

Sex Tape: Pop-Up Trailer

— by JESSIKA OWENS — It’s no secret that today is a technologically advanced age. Social media and clouds are the way we share and distribute information. Our phones and tablets are little computers that keep us connected 24-seven, constantly sending and receiving information. What[...]

Korengal: Trailer

— by BEV QUESTAD — Soldiers are penned up in a sand-bagged lookout on a hillside overlooking the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan. They are ordered out on daily sorties where they are shot at either coming or going. They are the bait. Enemy fire reveals where the adversary is. This is Seba[...]

The Fault In Our Stars: New Trailer

— by JESSIKA OWENS — Novels turned film, as anybody who knows me will tell you, are one of my biggest pet peeves. It’s not logically acceptable for time constraint purposes, setting purposes, and a varying degree of other factors to be taken into consideration. It’s a task th[...]
