The Shrine is about a young reporter trying to write a story about a backpacker that goes missing in a small eastern European town.  She notices several people have gone missing in this area over the years and takes her boyfriend and another reporter with her to investigate.  When they arrive in the village the townsfolk are less than welcoming and try to run the group of reporters out of the town.  The acting in this movie could have been a lot better but obviously it was a low budget indie film Continue reading

American Vampire

7 Mar

I started reading American Vampire recently and I am pulled into this comic. The series has a connection to the first American Vampire and the people he has affected since becoming a vampire. Scott Snyder does an amazing job with the  different groups of vampires and creating the stories to show all of their strengths and weaknesses. I have always liked vampire stories and this one is fantastic and original.  The artwork is also wonderful which just helps strengthen the entire story. American Vampire is released monthly by Vertigo.

I Am Comic takes a behind the scenes look at the life onstage and off of a comedian. Comedians of today and the past discuss their craft, techniques, why they do it and why they hate doing it. Being a very big fan of comedy I was pleased to see a lot of my favorites interviewed like Sarah Silverman, Todd Glass and Louis C.K. but I felt with a film like this director Jordan Brady missed a bigger opportunity to take advantage of the current resurgence in comedy. He gets a fair majority of the big comedy stars but I would have liked to see more from the booming alternative comedy scene Continue reading

In Erasing David director David Bond attempts to answer the question how much information do companies and the government have on its citizens? While reviewing this information David attempts to disappear for an entire month whilst being pursued by two relentless private investigators. This documentary was very fun, thrilling at times and a little scary. Without spoiling too much David exposes some very interesting aspects of British government and their attempts at public surveillance Continue reading
