Undercity (mini-review)

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, Undercity 2010Andrew WonderSteve Duncan Undercity(2010)

“Undercity” is the first of two documentaries we recently found online and hope the beginning of a trend in quality, while short, documentary filmmaking. The documentary is not light on content while filmmaker Andrew Wonder and our guide Steve Duncan takes us through places in New York we’d probably never be able to see. Both members of the crew risk life and limb and show us a near-lost piece of underground history.

As mentioned above, the documentary is short, but it really does capture one’s attention and holds on the entire length of the project. The project really makes us wonder how many other interesting places are hidden from view or blocked off from access in New York and what fascinating treasures they contain. The fact that the documentary ends high atop New York is both ironic and poetic in a way that really makes this documentary stand out for us.

All that information and content held within and we haven’t even mentioned that Steve Duncan is one cool dude.

Check out the full documentary below!

"Aidan 5" needs your help!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,    

"Aidan 5". The 24 hour film version rocked it and now the web series plans to expand the story with improved effects and fully realized storyline, but making a science fiction web series isn’t cheap and the team needs your help!

If you find some extra cash in your couch or just have some overflowing from the mattress take some and help some talented artists do their thing!

The "Aidan 5" team is looking for $5,000 to complete the series. Considering the quality we’ve seen from the project thus far we can say that it’s likely to be money well spent, so get to this link and help some cool people make some cool art! We know we'll be!

Eat, Love, Pray for an early death to get out of this film

Fair warning. My first thought during this movie was the character Julia Roberts is playing here is really full of shit. It turns out that the actual person she plays is, well, sorta full of shit in real life. More on that later…

Liz Gilbert is a writer and she’s upset with a big house and a husband. Woe is she in her hard hard life. She prays to god for the first time and somehow god tells her to leave her husband. Leave it to god to make someone break her vows, which she made before that very god. Then she laughs and plays with her new boy toy David Piccolo (James Franco). Guess what, she gets tired of that too. So she gets this bright idea of heading to Italy, India and Bali to discover how deep she wishes she is. She wants to once again get a taste for life. Of course on this trip she meets a man and they live happily ever after. More on that later…



Leave it to Brisk to make "Machete" worth watching?


Well, the feature is a mess, but at least the short claymation version is worth watching.

Now go wash your hands!
