Reviews by Kierston Drier

Movie Review: BARROW (2016)
This film is wonderfully balanced cinematographically, beautifully rendering scenes of dazzling brilliance without having the darker scenes feel out of place. The story is clean, precise and engaging, with thoughtful attention to detail. The character development is logical, well designed and tempered with flawed heroes, tragic backstories and strong performances.

Movie Review: TENGU: BIRDMAN OF THE MOUNTAINS (2016)

Tengu: Birdman of the Mountains,  is a film that will delight you with its symbology, its imagery and it’s excellent fight sequences, but it goes far beyond that. This film represents of genre-hybrid that should be welcomed into cinema with open arms. It is highly commendable thing to be able to successfully blend genres together, and this film is able to do that. With effortless ease a viewer can watch this film and find something in it to enjoy…

Watch all the Videos from the Oct. 2016 ACTION/CRIME Film Festival

WILDsound Festival

Highlights from the Thursday October 20, 2016 event.

The October 2016 ACTION/CRIME Festival was a major success. The sold out crowd loved every single film.

The theme of the festival was “Remember the Red Herring”.

In these genres (action, crime, mystery) especially, the “red herring” element always appears, like they did in all the movies presented this month. The audience thinks it’s one thing who is doing bad, but it is never is the case.

Definition of a Red Herring: Something, especially a clue, that is or is intended to be misleading or distracting in a novel, TV episode, story, or movie.

All 6 films this month were standouts as every movie received multiple votes for “Best Film,” and 4 out of the 6 films received an award. That never happens at our festival as usually there is 1-2 films that receive all of the votes and win all of…

(On making The Princess Bride (1987)) It was a wonderfully supportive set, and that’s a great atmosphere for being creative. An atmosphere of fun, is an atmosphere where the mind is more likely to come up with great stuff.

Born: October 26, 1998 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA

I know a lot of people who say they want to leave Tulsa and go off to L.A. or New York City. But I can’t wait to come back to Tulsa. It’s a great place to be.

Christmas is a huge thing in my family. We usually start decorating the day after Thanksgiving. We spend Christmas Eve with one set of grandparents, and Christmas Day with the other grandparents and our family.

Happy Birthday: Seth MacFarlane

WILDsound Festival

sethmacfarlane.jpgSeth MacFarlane

Born: October 26, 1973 in Kent, Connecticut, USA

The only way it [criticism] gets to me is that it demonstrates a deterioration of the power of restrained, critical, rational thought that was once more ubiquitous in our society. In the sixties and seventies there was such a high regard in this country for the achievements of human beings in science, in technology, in space exploration. And in some ways we’ve turned into this wimpy, astrology-loving, angel-loving, pseudo-scientific culture that no longer has that ability. We’ve gotten lazy in our willingness to use our brains.

When you are in a room and your job is to write jokes 10 hours a day, your mind starts going to strange places.
