An awesome friday night event to go to if you haven't yet. Some good films, some bad, but a lot of great effort by different people. The beer is my favorite part tho
The best story of men in war since the classic WWII movies of the 50s and 60s. No politics just the tense atmosphere of combat. Certainly the best movie I've see this year.
hmmm... trailer looks purdy good.
maybe I'll have to check it out...
Love Anvil! Can't wait to see the film
Hands down, one of the best Star Trek movies ever. Brilliantly cast and extremely fun.
My sole gripe is the Spock/Uhura "kissy face" as Pallas put it. It was out of character and gratuitous. Their relationship building would have been significantly better if it was limited to their moment on the elevator.
That gripe aside, a great film for Trek fans and general sci-fi drama fans.
See it. See it twice.
This movie was incredibly entertaining. Star Trek is the sort of thing the big screen was made for, it looks amazing and has engaging characters and a plot to boot.
First Friday Shorts Rock!
Max Canon rules, and the films are cool too, not to mention Nimbus at The Loft. How can it get any better than that?
Ok, maybe a massage while you watch. I'll have to suggest that.
If you like the graphic novel or the movie, I highly recommend the DVD (or iTunes download) of the motion comic. It's outstanding and unabridged.
Can't wait to see this again. I'm not sure that it will appeal to the masses due to the length and depth but this certainly impressed me.
I couldn't disagree more with Colin Boyd's review of "Angel's Share" as "sad and disappointing". Having lived in a depressed city in Scotland in the 1970s, the Ken Loach's portrayal of the cycle of poverty and hopelessness in inner-city Glasgow is spot on. This makes it all the more heartwarming to see the lead character make the audacious leap out of this cycle. And it is not an easy move! I was on the edge of my seat during the brewery scene as he was siphoning the "Angel's Share" and felt the triumph of his struggle in the final scenes with his new family. The film was hilarious (especially if you are familiar with Scottish culture), touching, and entirely human. It is absolutely worth seeing! (Word of warning: The use of the F-word is prolific throughout the film, which may bother some viewers.)
Went to see this at the Loft last night with a friend and had an excellent time. This film is a seriously surreal, occasionally shocking and funny ride and well worth the time. It's a twisted mash-up of Ghostbusters, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Buckaroo Banzai; Paul Giamatti is his usual fantastic self and the heroes are like Bill and Ted run through a ketamine sieve. See it at the Loft or pick it up at Casa!
Everyone-meaning both parties- should see this movie. It helps you understand the thoughts of our elected POTUS.

My review of Splice, a Review of a Modern Day Prometheus
Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.
This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.
Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.
Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!
This is a very powerful and well realized film. No, it does not compare to the book, but that is not a fair comparison. The acting is excellent, the direction confident and true to the story, and the plot, although minimal, never fails to hold interest. The very ending didn't quite live up to the rest to my mind, but on the whole this is a first rate movie. In particular, fathers and sons should see it for the portrayal of the deep, if often unspoken bonds, between them.
Not only did this movie make me want to punch myself in the face, it also made me want to punch the guy sitting next to me....which I did. Sadly I was thrown out of the theater. I blame every thing on this stupid movie and Amelia Earhart. But at the same time I liked what I got a chance to see and gave it a four.
I have two points I would like to make about this film.
First, I felt a bit betrayed by the story line. The film begins with its theme being the ethical and philosophical conflict that arises as a mother gives birth to a child so as to use her to save her previous child. The theme turns, then, to be one about end of life issues. This remains an honorable theme, but the story line regarding the conflict of the mother lured me to the ticket office because I thought it would follow through on this ethical dilemma and it failed to do so. I hoped for a more developed debate in the court room on the human rights issue presented by Anna.
That said, I feel satisfied in that the film left me pondering ethical questions that are easily as important: In the midst of this tug of war between our technology and the natural processes of life and death, how do we make the decision as to when we should cease to intervene between the forces of life and the process of death? ~Linda Bayless
Bad review because the reviewer: 1) has NOT read the book from which this film was adapted -- adapted a little too freely; 2)knows nothing about acting; 3) knows nothing about classical music or what Steve Lopez (author of the book which Grimm has not read) calls "the redemptive power of music"; 4) knows nothing about classical musicians; and 5) most certainly knows nothing whatsoever about mental illness or the realities of homelessness among mentally ill people. Grimm likes shoot em ups and special effects and should stick to that sort of mindless "entertainment."
