Retro Review: The Infinite Man

Submitted by Indiebizliz on October 26, 2016 - 9:00am


Have you ever thought of an awful/embarrassing/heartbreaking moment in your life and thought, “if I could just go back to that moment…” In The Infinite Man, we find Dean, brilliant scientific mind with the intentions of creating the perfect anniversary weekend for his girlfriend Lana. But, nothing is ever perfect. When events don't go according to plan, Dean works tirelessly for an entire year to invent time travel that will reset the events of the original day. If he can just avoid running into himself. Stuck in a mind-bending loop, both he and Lana ( and a weirdo of an ex-boyfriend) weave in and out of “the present” to amend their relationship.

Writer/Director Hugh Sullivan deserves a job offer from the Doctor Who writing staff. This script is written with such creative precision, it should be studied. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out how each scene would play out in respect to the loop. Catching new clues here and there but ultimately blown away by each new revelation. High five, Hugh. I find myself predicting the ending of most film and television shows about 30 minutes in, these days. This film is a beautiful 85 minutes in length and not once did I even glance at my watch. I had no idea what was ever coming next.

Doc Spotlight: Tom Berninger's 'Mistaken for Strangers'

Submitted by Spirit of the Thing on September 30, 2016 - 9:03am


Documentaries about musicians are popping up everywhere these days. Hell, one (Waiting for Sugar Man) even won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature in 2013. Most tend to focus on a musician's obscurity as in Sugar Man, a band's last hurrah as in Shut Up and Play the Hits, or a band's rise and fall (and subsequent return) like loudQUIETloudTom Berninger's quasi-doc about The National, Mistaken for Strangers, is nothing like any of these...and this is precisely why it's so good.

In theaters, on demand and iTunes! Screenings here!

It seems as if the film is supposed to be a standard doc about a band on the road. Shot (mostly) and directed by the brother (Tom Berninger) of The National's lead singer Matt Berninger, we get a familiar scenario - little brother is asked to go on tour with big brother and help out doing roadie type stuff, mostly acting as liaison/assistant to the band. Tom still lives with his parents in Cincinnati and while we don't get much of a view into his life, we can tell that he doesn't have much going on. And there's nothing wrong with that.

Retro Review: Only Lovers Left Alive

Submitted by melissa on September 6, 2016 - 9:00am


Every person I know that has seen Only Lovers Left Alive has nothing but praise for it, of which I wholeheartedly agree. At the center of the tale are two vampires who, married, live in different parts of the world.  After such a long physical separation, Adam and Eve (fantastic, right?) are reunited and are immediately inseparable as if no time has passed. This bliss doesn't last, however, when Eve's sister arrives and stirs up trouble in paradise.

As a special treat, we have two reviews for you, one from Michael aka Petrocs, and the other from Jeremy aka Spirit of the Thing.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover.

Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Retro Review: Back to the Future

Submitted by petrocs on August 23, 2016 - 5:45am


Director Robert Zemeckis probably hoped that his film about a time traveling boy would be a remembered, but I'm reasonably sure he had no idea the impact it would have on the legions of fans for years to come. To say this movie was a success would be an understatement. Since 1985, Back to the Future has gone on to gross more than $381 million dollars worldwide and was the #1 movie of 1985. Back to the Future was voted the 23rd greatest film ever made by readers of Empire Magazine, it has been included in AFI's Top 10 Science Fiction Films of All Time, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant", and most importantly, it is my #1 movie of all time. Let's look back 29 years into the past and travel Back to the Future.
