Goodbye Until Next Year, Phoenix Film Fest

Posted on April 10th, 2014

Today is officially the last day of the Phoenix Film Festival. For those of you out there that have absolutely no interest in it, you can breathe a sigh of relief, as this will likely be my last post about it for a while. Unless I decide to...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: Oculus

Posted on April 9th, 2014

Well, here it is - my first negative review. I wasn't really a fan of this movie. I went in with a lot of expectations, because from the reviews I've seen, it sounded like it was pretty good. It's got great reviews from critics on Rotten...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: The Trouble With The Truth

Posted on April 8th, 2014

I'm not sure, but this could possibly end up being my favorite film of the festival this year. It's definitely in the top three. It's funny, because The Trouble With The Truth is a simple movie, but also quite complicated. The majority of the...

Recap: Phoenix Film Festival Weekend

Posted on April 7th, 2014

Well, the biggest part of the Phoenix Film Festival is officially over. The entire festival isn't over yet, as there are still movies to be shown throughout this week. But the weekend is by far the biggest event, and most of the filmmakers tend...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: Billy Club

Posted on April 6th, 2014

Batter up! Ok, I just keep using that phrase because it's baseball-related, and I don't necessarily know all that much about baseball. Probably just enough to be dangerous. But, apparently that's all it takes in this movie. Billy Club is about...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: The Shower

Posted on April 5th, 2014

Ok, so it's possible that I am already a bit biased about this movie, since I started tweeting with the cast and director before I even saw it! In my defense, however, it was on my list of movies to see this weekend even before that. After...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: God's Pocket

Posted on April 5th, 2014

This was the second of two deep movies in a row tonight at the film festival! I sure know how to pick them. Or something. This was one of the last films that Philip Seymour Hoffman did before he passed away. He's such a great actor, and this...

Ok, here we go. Trust me, you’re going to be tired of hearing about this festival before it’s all over with, but I hope you enjoy the posts once I start talking more about the movies and the people at the festival. Because… it starts next...

Phoenix Film Festival: Interview With Jason Carney

Phoenix Film Fest Time Again!

Posted on March 15th, 2014

It’s almost that time again… Last year I spent almost a week volunteering at the Phoenix Film Festival, and this year’s festival is almost upon us. I chose to volunteer last year because I didn’t mind the time commitment and I wanted to see a...

Media Roundup: The X-Files, More Neil, The Maze Runner

Posted on August 2nd, 2013

I think I’m going to have to stop calling this a weekly feature because honestly, I think you guys will get bored with me if I post weekly. Some weeks I am just watching the same shows and reading the same books as the week before. That’s why...

Media Roundup: Intense, White House Down, Identity Thief

Posted on July 16th, 2013

Woohoo, I’m actually getting week 2 done here! Maybe this new feature will stick around. So, let’s see… what have I been chewing on this week? Well, not literally chewing, but you know what I mean. Here we go! Music Let’s start with music,...

Media Roundup: Big Love, Neil Gaiman, Four Agreements

Posted on July 9th, 2013

So, I think I want to start having some kind of regular feature. So far, the best idea I can come up with is to talk about the books, movies, TV shows, music, etc. that I have been indulging in each week or however often. My interests vary,...

Phoenix Film Festival Recap

Posted on May 1st, 2013

So a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to be a volunteer at the Phoenix Film Festival. I had heard about the festival and ended up looking into opportunities to be a part of it. I found out it was only a couple miles from my house and...

Disconnect: A Review

Posted on April 24th, 2013

So last week I received an email about free sneak preview passes to see the movie Disconnect. Since free movies are always good and I’d had a lot going on and appreciated the opportunity to break away for a while, I accepted the passes and...
