Sam’s Blog – Wish I Was Here

Posted in Sam's Blog by - Jul 25, 2014

I was nervous about WISH I WAS HERE right from the start. Zach Braff wrote, directed, and starred in the film — the same set up for GARDEN STATE (Braff’s ten-year-old debut film), except that now, Braff has had financial help from his fans. Setting that controversy aside, I was worried that this would just be another repeat of GARDEN STATE. The trailer left me with little hope, giving me the impression that it was going to be another string of silly and sappy events. But the beginning of the film shows some disparity: it quickly lays the characters’ flaws …

When Oren’s ex-junkie son asks him to take care of his ten-year-old …

Sam’s Blog – Aliens

Posted in Sam's Blog by - Jul 24, 2014

Humans have a strange obsession with aliens. Are they out there? Will we find them? If we do, will we like what we find? For the sake of Hollywood, most films tell us, no. We will not like what we find.

This is very much the case for ALIENS, which rocked the box office at number one for four straight weeks in 1986. The story is a follow up of ALIEN, in which the crew of a spaceship is slowly picked off by an alien who weasels its way on board via its bizarre birthing ritual. The only survivor of this …
