    Everybody Wants Some|DIR: Richard Linklater|116 MIN.|USA|COMEDY A "spiritual sequel" to Dazed and Confused set in the world of 1980 college life, Everybody Wants Some is a comedy that follows a group of friends as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. Get ready for the best weekend ever. Review: As I watched this film from beginning to end, it was nothing but gratuitous sex, drink and drugs all throughout the film. In the tradition of films from Porky's, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Animal House, and other teen sex comedies of the decade, the raw perverted sexual nature and drug-inducement nature of the film felt very boring. Utilizing cliches and one-dimensional stereotypes found in these films made it uninspiring, unoriginal and just an excuse to show off 1980s nostalgia with no character depth and analysis.

    One More Time|DIR: Robert Edwards|95 MIN.|USA|COMEDY, DRAMA, MUSIC| When an aspiring rocker (Amber Heard) moves back in with her father (Christopher Walken), an aging star charting a comeback, tensions rise, but their lives begin to change forever. Review: This comedy film featuring Amber Heard and Christopher Walken is interesting since they are the only two talents throughout the film whose performances stand out. Part of the usual showbiz type family movie, where the relationship between the daughter and the father are in the forefront, it felt repetitive and somewhat common. Walken as the aging singer desperate for a comeback has a few qups of his own in the picture as well as being an irresponsible grandfather to his grandson when he hands him a handful of magazines featuring nudies. He is also a terrific singer which he shows off in the film for the nightclub performances from beginning to end.

    My take on the shorts: Her Unlikely Kin: At first, I thought it was going to be a story set in a middle-eastern country. But, as I watched the film, it starts in the middle of the story and it was told through flashback. The relationship between Sarah and Peyton at times feels heartwarming and nurturing between a war veteran and a young girl. It is a truly remarkable story. Dixie: A shockingly provocative film, discussing the most complex topic in the country, racism. It is difficult to hate these characters, since they are obviously white supremacists basking on white nationalism, but underneath the exterior, they are human and have faults of their own. The character of Rhett, is extremely complex and three-dimensional, you hate what he stands for, but he sheds some human emotion and vulnerability on the screen. Compassionate Release: It is a unique character driven-short film that has been occupying Laura throughout, guilt. It is an interesting film, but it might need a little bit more character development for Laura. Dead Roses: After watching this film, it felt flawed technical-wise. While the film is trying to capture the political espionage thrillers from Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy, the character of Katrina and the actress portraying her felt flat. Her accent comes off as artificial and unauthentic. The effects in the film are computer generated and the audio portion of the film is off on the right portion of the film as it is running. Drone: Felt extremely well-made and professional looking from the perspective of a rookie Air Force drone pilot and the office of where he works. I was curious as to how the filmmaker was able to film a middle-eastern village from the perspective of the drone and what the pilot was looking at. Queens: An interesting comedic touch with LGBTQ themes to reflect on transvestism, cross-dressing, and gender relationships. A humorous film that is delightful. Hush: I felt interested in this short film at first, with reality overlapping fantasy. From the ballet stage to the cold frosty forest as she is being followed. It has a gothic ethereal atmosphere almost taken from the pages of Val Lewton and his rule of not showing the unknown. You Are Always On Time: An interesting science fiction/fantasy short film about an older woman who can turn back time to fix her mistakes in the past. Smart and intelligent. One of the rare short films featuring an elder character as the main protagonist that I have seen. Graveyard Girl: Fun, quirky and extremely short. I was expecting more out of this short. Instead, it was limited to a ghost-story writer and a punk ghost having a brief conversation after she was following it.

    Precious Cargo|DIR: Max Adams|90 MIN.|USA|ACTION After a botched heist, Eddie (Bruce Willis), a murderous crime boss, hunts down the seductive thief Karen (Claire Forlani) who failed him. In order to win back Eddie's trust, Karen recruits her ex-lover and premier thief Jack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) to steal a cargo of rare precious gems. But when the job goes down, allegiances are betrayed and lines are crossed as Jack, Karen, and Eddie face off in a fateful shutdown. Review: An action-packed and extremely noisy picture that will literally blow your ears off. After watching the film from beginning to end, the usual plot devices are commonplace in this low-budget action film. The only big name in the film Bruce Willis does his usual one-dimensional character quips and characteristics that make his performance feel entirely forgettable. The action is clichéd and repetitive with character spouting off one-liners and not enough originality. The effects in this film are both practical and obviously computer generated. The performances are stale and flat. The characters are uninteresting and Daniel Bernhardt, a Belgian martial arts actor with zero acting skills is performing the usual one-dimensional henchman with no character depth whatsoever. The plot feels truncated and all too familiar. My one complaint about this film is that the volume was so loud that my ears almost popped out of my head when I was at the theater for the first screening.
