On My Watchlist: Blackfish, Devil and Side Effects

– Posted in: Film Review

After cramming in so many live screenings at theaters in the run up to the SAG Awards, it’s refreshing to curl up on the couch and tackle my Netflix queue. In keeping with the FBC Films target genres, I watched a creature feature, horror film and a thriller recently. Blackfish is absolutely a creature feature, [...]

Film Review: Blue Jasmine, Philomena, One Chance, 12 Years A Slave

– Posted in: Film Review

Blue Jasmine is the sort of movie I should love. I’m a personal finance/ business news junkie, and this film tells the story of the scorned wife-turned-widow of a Bernie Madoff-like financier. Cate Blanchett puts in a great performance, and Alex Baldwin phones it home playing every other role he’s played recently, except here he’s [...]

On My Watch List: The Butler, Rush, Gravity and Captain Phillips

– Posted in: Film Review

The Butler was good like Luna bars are good (i.e., super tasty but you won’t mistake this for dessert). I appreciated The Butler, but didn’t enjoy it. Of course, the subject matter is super difficult to tackle and the film did an admirable job here, successfully navigating the delicate line between being too preachy and [...]
