Pariah Trailer

Hoping to catch this one soon!

50/50- review

I got a chance to go to Arclight which is a famous theater in Hollywood. I picked b/w this film and Drive. I really wanted to see 50/50 after watching the trailer.
Synop: a young man finds out he has cancer and a 50/50 chance of survival. The writer/director had cancer and he used moments from his real-life to give the film a personal touch.

The beginning starts off a little slow and pulls out some of that potty mouth humor. I was starting to think maybe I should sneak into Drive. But then it got better much better. I haven't appreciated or enjoyed a film of this genre in a minute. It is a mix of Drama-Comedy&Romance. Joseph Gordon-Levitt really shines and Seth Rogen has his moments. I cried a few good times and felt inspired by the story. Sometimes, films try to get too complex and it is nice to just see a regular story.
4 1/2 stars hope it gets a nomination

Attack the Block-review

Yay, I finally got a chance to watch this one.
The synop: aliens arrive in a London hood and a gang of youth decide to defend their block. I liked it. It has a great pace and is an overall cute film. The aliens are very unconventional but still interesting well actually the blue teeth is the only cool feature. Go see it if you haven't seen it yet. I know I am super late but I know it had a limited release so I'm sure it is still under the radar for some.
4 stars

Two Whoopi Goldberg films I haven't seen

Wow I just found these online. Now, I used to love me some Whoopi Goldberg. So it is a shock to find these films. I think I may have seen The Telephone before but the other one Kiss Shot no not at all. I used to love to shoot pool so I'm like I must watch this. I haven't been in the mood to sit through a film lately (believe it or not). There have been a few films I started but didn't finish like Paul and Attack the Block. I did start another short film. I need to find actors to fill these others roles and then we can shoot day 2. Anyways, check out the Whoopi clips below couldn't find rge trailers.
