Boyhood – Review

  Boyhood – it’s certainly highly talked about and lauded by many as the greatest thing, not only since sliced bread, but perhaps the very concept of slicing. Bread or otherwise. There was certainly something impressive about the overall approach to filming – a 12 year filming schedule basically demands that you sit up and pay attention. 99% positive reviews out of 200 on Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t hurt either – this movie, apparently, rocks. Well, except that I really didn’t like the movie at all, lets look at why…

2014

Happy new year? Ok – so it is slightly late for that – in the time between August 2013 and this post I’ve managed to get married, drink several beers, watch many things on TV (perhaps all of the things?). In that same span of time I’ve also managed to write a whopping zero articles for this poor abandoned site. Still, no time like the present right?

Vigilante Diaries – Season 1 Episodes 1 & 2 Review

Crowd sourced movies with big names attached are starting to flood out, so much so that they’re likely to become old hat. The recipe is pretty simple; throw in 20 bucks now, and in a year and a half you get a movie. The deal here reminds me of a reversal of the famous phrase that Wimpy trotted out in Popeye; “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today”, only with crowdfunding we’re often in the situation of investing in a future hypothetical hamburger. Major players are all over this – first a Veronica Mars movie now Zach Braff has a project out there – producers aren’t shy when they see a new source of funding, even if they have access to plenty of traditional funding avenues. Television however has been more or less untouched by the crowdfunding phenomenon, so I was interested when I saw news of a new crowdfunded series going by the name of The Vigilante Diaries. Join us after the break to find out more.
