Comments– You can see the big difference in the scores here. When I saw the trailer for this, I thought it would be a good movie, and then I found out it was directed by Neil LaBute- one of my favorite playwrights- and I thought it had the potential to be a sleeper favorite of mine. And then I watched the movie… What really hurt this movie was the final 3/4 of the film- it just took away from what had been established already. Bridgette really enjoyed it, but I just couldn’t agree. Disappointing-Great.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
