Blast From The Past: 10-Year-Old Joseph Reviews 1997 Summer Movies

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 6 Comments

I’ve always been a movie nerd. From the time I could walk, I got a picture of myself and jammed it into the VCR to try to watch myself on TV. (Guess I’ve also always been kind of egotistical too…) So as I grew up and watched old movies with my parents on TV, rented entire genres at a time from local Mom & Pop video rental stores (R.I.P… gone, but not forgotten), and frequented the $1.50 discount movie theater and Summer Morning Kids Movie Festivals with my mom and cousins, I loved to tell people what I thought. (Guess I’ve always been opinionated.) Read more

Movie Review: The Redemption of General Butt Naked

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 1 Comment

Yep. The title served its purpose. Sucked you in, just as it did to me on Friday night. I love documentaries, mainly because I discover more about the human condition. Well, this film causes you think very hard about forgiveness and the limits people will allow others to be forgiven.

Joshua Milton Blahyi, a.k.a. General Butt Naked, was responsible for thousands of deaths during the Liberian civil war. Men, women, and children all were innocent victims of his evil rampage. As a Liberian warlord, he often went into battle wearing nothing but a pair of shoes, an AK-47, and a machete. He feared no man, and believed it was his mission to eliminate people who opposed him. He recruited children for his “army” and used their fearlessness, naivety, and depravity to serve his destructive purposes. His presence and father-like nature propelled these children to massacre thousands of innocent people at his very command. General Butt Naked terrorized villages throughout Liberia, striking fear in the hearts of the villagers with just the utterance of his name. His power and evil was unmeasurable. Then, one night in 1996, he became a Christian. Read more

Movie Review: The Five-Year Engagement

The Five-Year Engagement: *** stars out of 4

What makes Judd Apatow and his crew’s films so good is often what also keeps them from being better. It’s the result of a balancing act that makes me respect and enjoy Apatow’s films so much for what they attempt, and yet often leaves me feeling like the films bit off more than they could chew.

It’s an unfair criticism, I admit. The man who brought us TV cult hits “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared.” Then we realized he gave us “Heavyweights.” AND HE PRODUCED ANCHORMAN? Judd Apatow is the man. Read more
