Bill Paxton passed away over the weekend at the age of 61. He was undergoing heart surgery and suffered a stroke during the procedure — an injury from which he would not wake from.

This week I saw Lion with a friend who recommended it. I’d never heard of Lion, didn’t know what to expect and this was the director, Garth Davis’s ‘feature debut’ (he hadn’t made anything else that I could compare to) so I really had nothing to go on. The trailer looked like a made-for-TV drama, at least to me, but then I’m a little unfair to movies (and trailers) that are not my preferred genre. But when we bought our ticket, the box office guy told us that it was excellent and that we were in for a treat. I still didn’t know what this movie was really about going in. Read more
A movie not knowing its identity is very frustrating. Get Out is a perfect example of being funny when it shouldn’t be.

Jordan Peele, of the power house comedy duo Key and Peele, is definitely onto something with his craft. The best material has a kernel of truth rooted somewhere in it. With comedy, truth can illicit genuine laughter from audiences who are able to relate. Drama becomes more grounded when it provides some sort of commentary on our reality. Key and Peele has been such a success because of it’s comedic take on race issues and black stereotypes. With Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out, he tackles similar issues using the psychological thriller genre as his conduit. Read more
