• Overlord

    Overlord is exactly what I wanted Saturday night. The crowd was having as much fun with Overlord as much as zombies enjoy brains. I already can’t help myself when it comes to movies about killing Nazi bastards, especially zombie Nazis....

  • The Unthinkable

    The Unthinkable Was not the strongest Fantastic Fest opener I’ve seen and was slightly grueling in its pace and never quite got there for me. I’m sure there are plenty of folks who will love it though. With a film boasting a whopping five director collective, you would either think, Either there is going to …   Read More

  • Yellow Submarine: 50th Anniversary Restoration

  • Laser Focus April 27, 2018

    Seemed like Team Goodtimes return to OSMF took things to the next level. For one, being positioned under a lone oak on the literal highpoint of the property was a reminder that this stage, under the new moniker Shhhtimes, pulls...

  • The Breaker Upperers

    To break “upperer” all the sci-fi and horror flicks I’ve been catching this year, I went in blindly to The Breaker Upperers and what a great time I had. Someone in the Q&A was labeling it as a rom com, but to me it’s obviously a buddy (cop-ish) comedy.   Read More

  • SXSW 2018 Film Festival Opening Night: A Quiet Place

    The SXSW opening night film at the Paramount Theater is always a great litmus test for what’s to come. The bubbling anticipation and energy from the crowd filling up the historic Paramount theater (seating roughly 1200 people) could hardly be contained when director/co-writer John Krasinski (The Office among other feats) was brought to the stage …   Read More

  • Prospect
