Sci-Fi London Film Festival: Unspeakable Horrors – The Plan 9 Conspiracy – Review

One of my friends is an actor, and as someone who has to face rejection in auditions on a daily basis, he has moments when he has to deal with thoughts about not being good enough and what success really means, and self esteem crushing things of that nature. His big trick for getting through those dark feelings of not being good enough, he always says, is to watch Ed Wood.

Zootopia (2016)

Starring: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba Director: Byron Howard, Rich Moore Perhaps the weirdest Disney film I've seen in a while, this film isΒ a anthropomorphic buddy cop movie about the dangers of racism, sexism and profiling.

Concussion (2015)

Starring: Will Smith, Alec Baldwin Director: Peter Landesman Peter Landesman has not made a lot of films before, and here it shows.
