“Nuit Blanche” A Short Film.

Magic.  Many believe in it.  Many wonder and secretly snicker at the mere chance of capturing the one moment that creates it. Magic is a true wonderment, one that cannot be transposed.  It simply creates in itself a majestic beauty.  A sand filled wave in the ocean, a frosted cloud in the sky or an eternal love.  All of these, at times seem so unattainable, so we dive ourselves into the tangible, logical matters that provide temporary value and meaning to our empty lives.  But where is the true joy?  We are too afraid to express our vulnerability to let the …

Beat The Devil: A Short Film.

Even when you allow those shadows to follow you, they have the ability to haunt you.  The choices you make, mold you into something you cannot see, and the mirror tells another lie.  You chase those beings that have already gathered and clutched their mits tightly around you.  All in all, not realizing they have become you.  Or have you become them?  Hard to tell, who is real, with all these shadows floating in and out of bodies these days.  Is anyone committed anymore? Maybe what we need is just a bit of loyalty, to the vices that sink their fangs …

Control, it can be an emotional and mental level of assuredness and confidence.  All sorts of things control us, misconceptions as insidious as they are, can control a lifetime.  I know what you might be thinking, a control session is about to spill all over your monitor and seethe into your brains and for just a few minutes, you may become a puppet in this cyber playhouse.  I have to deny the urge to stop you and say I can only imagine the wheeling and dealings I would place into effect if I did have such Control.  But I digress.  I …

Movie Review: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Movie Review: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Jack Ryan is something of a reboot/prequel to the classic spy movies based on the novels of Tom Clancy and his famous protagonist Jack Ryan. This is a fun no-frills spy thriller with some sleek action scenes and chases and a solid story. The acting is also good with Kenneth Branagh a stand out as a slimy Russian baddie. Branagh also directed and has become quite the accomplished director as well as a tremendous actor. Chris Pine (toning down the smarm from his James T Kirk role in the new Star Trek movies) stars as Ryan. He’s an idealistic young man …

BuffaloGirls Poster MidRes Documentary Review: Buffalo Girls [Thailand] 2012

Buffalo Girls is an amazing documentary about two impoverished 8 year old Muay Thai fighters who earn money through fighting to help their families survive in rural Thailand. The film follows Pet and Stam both in the ring and out, as they make their way along Thailand’s underground child boxing arena. While both girls are great at Muay Thai, their disparity is evident not only physically and in their techniques, but socially, financially and in the way they approach their careers.  I had seen clips of kids fighting in Thailand in the past but they always seemed inexperienced. Not the case …
