Review: Jessabelle (2014)
The only thing that the grue-crew can agree upon in this week’s horror release Jessabelle is that Sarah Snook makes an impression with the character driven horror film set in the deep south. The Black Saint suggests it is better suited for the Lifetime channel finding very little that is scary or interesting while Doc, Vixen and Dave all seem to like the film quite a bit. Sound the bell, it HNR-nite fights!
Review: Interstellar (2014)
Matthew McConaughy joins Anne Hathaway and Wes Bentley to explore deep space in hopes to save humanity in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. The Black Saint and Thomas Mariani discuss the film’s sound design, spectacular special effects and emotional human drama. Even though it may not be Nolan’s best film, Interstellar is still a film to seek out and enjoy.
What Have You Been Watching: Over the Garden Wall
The Cartoon Network astounds Thomas Mariani and The Black Saint with its 10 episode animated min-series Over the Garden Wall. The vocal talent is extraordinary and the execution is surprisingly emotional and bent. Thomas and The Black Saint recommend the miniseries with The Black Saint suggesting it would make a terrific film with the 10 episode consumed in one showing.
