VICIOUS CIRCLE

VICIOUS CIRCLE
1 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 90 minutes

I know “Vicious Circle” is trying to tell a serious story here, but it’s so much like an “After School Special” that I couldn’t help but laugh…

WESTWOOD TALES: 2008 LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL WRAP-UP

CARGO 200

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 89 minutes

2008 LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL REVIEW! So if it’s such a boring film with only a few points of interest – why the fairly positive star rating? Well, I don’t know if this was intentional or not, but the movie made me laugh…

5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 90 minutes

2008 LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL REVIEW! The Cinematic Titanic screening was like a couple of dreams come true – the first was to have, in a way, MST3K back; the second was to see and hear these guys ripping apart a movie live along with over one thousand other fans…

MIRAGEMAN

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007

You gotta love a documentary on a bunch of guys who are notorious for sucking. Sucking at basketball, anyway. When it comes to science, however, they dunk all over anyone able to hold a beaker…

HOTEL VERY WELCOME

4 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 90 minutes

2008 LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL REVIEW! “Hotel Very Welcome” plays out very much like a Wong Kar Wai film with its characters living a lonely existence, wandering through their bustling surroundings, unable to properly connect with anything or anyone…

TRINIDAD

4 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 86 minutes

2008 LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL REVIEW! Far from a rip-roaring “dude looks like a lady” adventure in trans wonderland, “Trinidad” offers a wide-eyed look at what life is like for transsexuals…

HELL’S GROUND (DVD)

4 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 78 minutes

“Chainsaw Massacre” is a heavy influence here, but “Hell’s Ground” boasts enough differences that it exists as its own film. The slasher film in a Pakistani setting and culture alone provides for a fresh, exciting movie experience. The zombies are a nice touch, too…
