Film Review: Hector and the Search For Happiness (2014)

Happiness is what we all strive to find and keep, yet its source will always remain somewhat elusive. Sure, possessions and status count for something but endless studies show that when it really comes down to it, happiness depends on more than anything money can buy. It’s important that we make enough money to meet basic needs and have access to […]

Film Review: This Is Where I Leave You (2014)

Film Review: This Is Where I Leave You (2014)

Quite reminiscent of last year’s August: Osage County, Shawn Levy’s This Is Where I Leave You is your run of the mill, part black comedy, part drama that delves into the dysfunctionality of a family at their most vulnerable. Judd (Jason Bateman) is living proof that looks can be deceiving. On the surface he seems to have it all, he’s […]

If an event out of human control prevents anyone from fulfilling a contractual obligation, regardless of due care taken, force majeure might be cited to excuse liability. […]

Film Review: Son Of A Gun (2014)

Set in the seedy world of prisons and the mafia in Australia is Son of A Gun, directed by Julius Avery and with a screenplay by Avery and John Collee, who provided additional material. It has an intriguing premise, along with an expansive geographic scope, but ultimately this tale of a young man’s unintended induction into the criminal underworld and […]

Film Review: Dracula Untold (2014)

Back-stories are tough. They can be done, but normally, when you’re messing with classic literature, it’s best to steer clear, regardless of your historical mindset. Debut director Gary Shore’s Dracula Untold seems like a fitting a case in point. Before Dracula became Dracula, the most famous vampire of all went by the name of Vlad the Impaler. Sold as a […]
