DJ EFN and Garcia of Crazy Hood Film Academy are working on a sensational project that needs to be completed for the sake of hip-hop. Coming Home is a documentary film aimed at exploring how hip-hop “translates” the Cuban-style. In the land where Father Time seemed to have neglected his job when you see the classic American cars, but seemed to show no mercy on the Spanish-style architecture as evident in their deterioration... Read More →

[Movie Review]: Kevin Smith’s “Red State”

Category: Movies|Reviews   Posted by:    

22 Sep

  From the start of Kevin Smith‘s career, he’s shown an endless amount of talent and ambition. Even his big studio pictures carry an endearing respect to the art of independent cinema. He is constantly challenging himself by creating characters, stories, settings and themes that most young adults can seemingly relate to. With Clerks, his knack for creating crafty dialogue about relationships, hockey and even Star Wars, turned heads every which way. Being confined to a convenient... Read More →

I’m no stranger to controversial films. I tend to go out of my way to find these, actually, as I’m always on the tip of constantly wanting to be challenged. Ideally, I believe that’s what films should be about. As much as they entertain, it’s even better to find a film that incites emotions, outrage, controversy, discussion, etc… That said, let me tell you how I stumbled upon this film. I was surfing the internet to find updates on the Sundance Film Festival’s... Read More →

[Movie Review] The Tree of Life is philosophy personified through the medium of film.

  Terrence Malick is considered to be more of an entity in the world of filmmaking. It’s hard to believe that with just five films in a career spanning four decades, there isn’t one person in the film business that doesn’t look at Malick as an important figure in filmmaking. The Tree of Life is a sincere display of ambition from a director that aims to blur the lines of a film’s impact and ultimately bring his audiences to be more involved. He is a filmmaker with an... Read More →

[Movie review]: "Rubber" Emerges As An Arthouse B-movie With Something To Say

Quentin Dupieux is quite an interesting artist. Known mainly as Mr. Oizo, a pseudonym for his electronic music persona, Dupieux has been crossing boundaries into the realm of filmmaking since 2002. The main difference is, unlike most ego-maniac rap artists, he’s continuing to treat the art  of filmmaking as an art…and not a paycheck or exploitation of himself. Rubber is the second full-length feature by the French musician and reviewing it is probably just as hard for me as it is for... Read More →

[Movie Review]: Beats Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest

“Linden Boulevard represent, represent. Tribe Called Quest represent, represent…” I will open this review by saying that I am a diehard Tribe Called Quest fan. When People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm dropped, I was a shorty, maybe 11-years-old, but Bonita Applebum made me want to have a bigger ass…fact. I think when the lyric, “Can I kick it?” is uttered, the only natural response is, “Yes, you can.” And when Scenario hit,... Read More →

Remember the 80′s Prom at the Vagabond? And watching Dirty Dancing at the SoundScape? Imagine if they got together for 80′s dress up, a movie, dancing and epically cheesy fun. Don’t hold back, find some serious 80′s gear. I know you want to bring out the Madonna and Risky Business looks, but refrain. Be creative, because The Miami Downtown Development Authority is sponsoring FLICKIN’ SUMMER MOVIES, which isn’t your typical summer movie series. You see, it starts... Read More →
