Movie Review by Matthew Schuchman- Four out of Five ‘Staches.

Reclusive filmmaker, Terrence Malick is back again with his fifth film in the last 40 years. In his attempt to answer the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything; Malick’s answer is definitely not, 42. The film will confuse people; there is no doubt about it. While others will be turned off by its slow pace and unconventional structure. But if you sit and take the time to analyze the film, the end result of all its parts, is quite amazing. (more…)

In honor of “Hobo With A shotgun” hitting theaters today, I am reposting my review. As well, I have just finished interviewing the film’s director, Jason Eisner. Stay tuned for audio segments of the interview as well as some pictures from tonight’s “Hobo With A Shotgun” party!

Even in the middle of watching “Hobo With A Shotgun” I thought to myself, “How can I even begin to try to rate a film like this, even if I enjoyed the whole thing?”  This morning however, the more I thought about the movie, the more I smiled and laughed again.  My original intention was to not rank it at all and just talk about it, but I can no longer hold back, “Hobo With A Shotgun” is a master stroke and does everything right that “Machete” missed on.

Open your Netflix account, close your eyes and click  around. The chance is high you’ll land on a movie revolving around cops, criminals, drugs and corruption. “The Guard,” the feature length directorial debut of writer John Michael McDonagh definitely fits this bill.  But through clever and witty writing, fantastic character portrayals and the smarts to not over complicate the story, “The Guard” is an absolute winner and one of the best films I have personally seen thus far at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.

It usually is a dangerous thing for a film to remind you too much of another. Richard Ayoade’s feature directing debut, “Submarine” (based on the novel by Joe Dunthorne) definitely channels some Wes Anderson style and spirit.  But while Ayoade draws inspiration from a few of his predecessors, his work goes far enough as to carve out its own brilliant niche in the world of films that deal with the pressures of life and misguided adolescence.

Movie Review by Matthew Schuchman- Four out of Five ‘Staches.

It always bothers me that I never get a really good look at a lot of movie creatures.  The recent film “Monsters” was more about humans than the alien octopi you hardly saw and in “Cloverfield” they kept the creature from really being seen for more than a second.  Hell, there wasn’t even anything to see in “The Blair Witch Project.” While I don’t need to see a monster to make a movie worth while, I do yearn for a movie that can work well on its own, but still give me that creature thrill I am looking for. Well, if you are like me, then your movie is here and it is called, “The Troll Hunter” (Trolljegeren). (more…)

Among the many descriptions that can explain “Rubber” (gorgeous, funny, bloody) the one term that does not fit is; unoriginal.  In fact, “Rubber” is not just original, it pretty much sums up all my complaints about the cookie cutter format of popular films today. I walked out of “Rubber” a little shell-shocked from the experience, but the more thought I put into it, the more amazing it became. (more…)
