Short Movie Review: Take A Hike (2012)

Awhile back Blackman ‘N Robin was asked to take a look at a short called ‘The Code’ written and directed by Mark Blitch. We here at BNR were very impressed with Marks work and have hoped we would have the opportunity to see more of his stuff very soon.  Well he has followed up with another short titled ‘Take A Hike’ that took home awards for “Best Comedy” and “Best Screenplay” after being nominated in 12 categories at the 168 Film Festival Awards.   ‘Take A Hike’ follows a widowed father (David) who, at his only daughter’s request, goes on a...

Short Movie Review: Briefcase (2012)

Short Movie Review: Briefcase (2012)

Nate Golon scored big with his short ‘Briefcase’!  Being less than six minutes long and packing suspense and drama into every last second of the film shows how talented this young man is.  After watching this short you get the feeling of just having watched a full length feature film and wondering how the entire film could fit into such a short period.  The plot and character development starts immediately and follows right through until the end, a difficult task to pull off when making a short film.             The short tells the story of  a man named Carter (Golon) putting air in his tires...

Movie Review: Take Shelter (2011)

Movie Review: Take Shelter (2011)

In 2007, newcomer Jeff Nichols directed his powerful debut film Shotgun Stories. The film stars Michael Shannon and focuses on two separate groups of half-brothers who are at a grudgingly brutal war with one another, despite the fact that they all share the same father. The film focuses on several powerful themes, mainly the senselessness of violence and revenge, and how it can only end in tragedy. The film received much critical acclaim, and yet it still remains relatively unknown to mass audiences to this day. Four years later, Nichols finally made his follow-up feature, Take Shelter, and Michael Shannon returns also, with... Read On

Movie Review: Hugo

Movie Review: Hugo

I have a confession to make: Up until now, I’ve never seen a film in 3D. “Not even Avatar?” my friend lamented. No, amigo, not even James Cameron’s fabled Avatar. On this night, I saw my very first film in 3D: Hugo. It’s a movie that I don’t think earned enough attention- a real travesty. So what’s Hugo about? The year is 1931. World War One has come and gone, and everything’s right as rain. Welcome to a bustling train station in Paris, the city of love (it is the city of love, right?) where, somewhere deep in the lazy...

Movie Review: Moneyball (2011)

“How can you not be romantic about baseball?”  The based on true events movie about the General Manager for the Oakland Athletics who takes a losing team and turns them around using a “numbers based” player analysis system assigning a value to each player instead of  the old school, “what do you think about him?”, approach to scouting new players.  Billy Beane is a “high hope” high school draft pick that finds out he just can’t make it as a Major League ball player.  After giving up his Stanford scholarship to play ball, he can’t quite make the adjustment to the Major...
