Horrible Bosses 2 Review

horrible-bosses-2-posterHorrible Bosses 2 is a lot like the first one. The jokes are hit or miss and the plot gets kind of lost somewhere in the middle. This is unfortunate because the original, while funny, was only barely above average. This film feels about half an hour too long, and the jokes either really land or really don’t. This isn’t to mention the fact that the whole film feels completely unneeded.

Final Verdict: 2.5/5

 

 

 

 

Big Hero 6 Review

Big_Hero_6_(film)_posterBig Hero 6 is an interesting film. While it is super fun with a lot of energy and action and fun characters, it is also incredibly generic. The plot is seen through so early on that the only redeemable aspect of the film is the characters. Honestly I had a lot of fun in the theatre. I laughed repeatedly and went along for the ride. As fun as it was during the ride though I can’t forgive the plot. I really enjoyed watching Big Hero 6 but it is such a safe, formulaic movie that it just can’t really stand out. Not to mention that the most interesting part of the movie, the setting, is not even touched upon. How can you have a movie set in a half asian half western city called San Fransokyo and not delve into that? It did provide some great visuals, though. The art in this film is fantastic. If only it had a better story.

Final verdict: 2.5/5.

 

So Gay Music Video

This is a music video that I helped out on (2nd Assistant Director) for a local Atlanta band (who are good friends of my roommate Andrew Schwab) called Concord America. They are super awesome, and this video was so much fun to work on. I really am hoping this video goes far, as it represents the hopes of some really talented guys who deserve to have their music heard. Hope you all enjoy it!

Paracosm

I created this film for last year’s Campus Movie Fest, which, for those who don’t know is a contest where you are given a week to write, shoot, and edit together a five to seven minute short film. I had a lot of fun shooting this for the most part, however the last scene you see in this version was not the original scene. I had found another child actor, and they were supposed to have a confrontation in the park, but this other child actor proved…problematic. So we wrote a new end scene the day before we turned it in to fill the gaps. Unfortinatly didn’t get screened, but I still enjoyed writing, directing, and DPing this short. If only I could have made that original ending scene work.
