Short Films (3)

Film: The Southern Bell
Bora Bora Films
No MPAA rating
Runtime: 10 minutes
Director: Patrick Biesemans
It's only ten minutes in length, but The Southern Bell could have run much longer, as it deserved much more time than it got in this on-edge and pronouncedly dramatic short film where a cab driver and an attorney share stories about their broken lives and the women responsible.

Call it a blurring of the lines between payback and horror, but as a way to occupy ten minutes of your life, you could do much worse!

Film: Super Spree
Drewstone Productions
No MPAA rating
Runtime: 16 minutes
Director: Matt Post
Part of the fun of movies is seeing how a character handles stress...or not handle it!

Billy, a guy struggling to keep a positive attitude in the supermarket where he works, goes up against boyish butchers, mouthy cashiers, and a lazy boss in THE WORST managed grocery store in movie history. Watch Super Spree and see how he does.

Film: The End
In Association with Sherpa Pictures
No MPAA Rating
Runtime: 9:46
Director: Cam McHarg
Sometimes (as fate would have it) our own wallowing in self-pity isn’t as off-base as we are led to believe. 

That is what this intensely dark, humorous, and graphically impressive short film by Cameron McHarg called The End is all about.

When Jesus Turns Down the Glory: 10 Worst Ever Christian Songs

It’s a sad testimony when even the creator of a thing realizes that the product isn’t what it was intended to be. Well, actually it’s a good thing. It just doesn’t happen often enough. The Christian music industry is, shall we say, not up to par with where its admirers (and even creators and ardent well-wishers) would hope it would be. And when even the average believer realizes that their music is not market-cornering stuff, all should know that there is a problem.

Now not all Christian music sucks (you might even find a few rock songs from artists like Petra on Joe Holman’s ipod that he still sometimes listens to and enjoys), but what makes the stuff that does suck suck is that what sucks sucks for a number of different reasons. We begin the countdown going from best of the worst to absolute worst...

Movie Review: The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

When free spirit “Jules” (Anna “Go Girls” Hutchison) tells her best friend “Dana” (Kristen “Revolutionary Road” Connolly) what a good time they’ll be having at a cabin in the remote woods, you automatically know and are glad that she has no idea at all what awaits her or her friends, and neither does Jules’ jock boyfriend “Curt” (Chris “Thor” Hemsworth). The same is true of their intellectual friend with his notably piercing gaze, “Holden” (Jesse “Grey’s Anatomy” Williams) and their stoner friend “Marty” (Franz “The Village” Kranz) who seems to have a better grasp of reality, despite himself. Takes all kinds.

After taking off in the RV up the mountain, they stop for gas and run into a weirdly cryptic and confrontational gas station attendant (Tim De Zarn). When they’re back on the road after a near-fight, it isn’t long before they arrive and forget all about it. Following horror movie suit in letting out their whoas about how cool the place is and how much fun they will have losing t…

At about 3 hours long, Django Unchained is Quentin Tarantino’s latest mental sickness-inspired adventure of a slave named “Django” (Jamie Foxx) who is freed by a German dentist-turned-bounty hunter, “Dr. King Schultz” (Christoph Waltz) who helps Django rescue his enslaved wife from a cruel plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio) in Mississippi.
