DVD Review of Wild: A Wild Journey that Doesn't Excite

 

Synopsis: A woman takes a 1,100 mile hike down the PCT in order to deal with a personal issue. 

 

 

Wild isn’t as wild as the title suggests. It’s rather more mundane. Based on a memoir by Cheryl Strayed, who experienced the events depicted in the movie. I could see how this was worth being made into a book, tho…

7 SXSW 2015 Movies That Need Distribution NOW!

I watched quite a few movies during the SXSW Film Festival. One of the most rewarding and challenging experiences is falling in love with a movie that doesn’t have a distribution deal. It is rewarding because you were able to see it. However, the challenging aspect is not knowing when it will be released. A good movie you have to wait to see again …
