Movie Review: ‘Gifted’

My journey with this movie started over two years ago. In March of 2015, by chance I happened to attend a live reading of the Gifted screenplay through The Black List. While listening to the actors read aloud (at the time the l...

Movie Review: ‘Life’

‘The Bye Bye Man’ – Don’t Think It, Don’t See it

Don’t think it don’t say it. Don’t say it don’t think it. Don’t think it don’t say it. Don’t say it don’t think it Oh fuck it. I’ll say it: This movie is horrendous. I haven’t watched a movie as bad as The Bye Bye Man in theate...

‘Live By Night’ Dies By Bad Writing

Live By Night is a frustrating film to review. On one hand it shows Ben Affleck’s strengths as a director. Affleck brings a vision and aesthetic to his films that is undeniable in their quality. I knew little of the film ...
