Hope for Hollywood – A 2011 Movie Recap

December 4th, 2011 by Devi Snively (The Directrix)

1205-LRAINER-The-Artist_full_600So, after putting a moratorium on Hollywood films earlier this year (in protest to all the soulless, unoriginal garbage I kept subjecting myself to), I finally ventured back to the Arclight to give her another chance.  I’m so glad I did!  THE ARTIST is a wonderfully successful black and white, silent film in this day and age.  That unto itself is a remarkable feat.  Read the rest of this entry »

Brutal as Hell trippin’ Review…
