THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Frank (2014)

A bizarre, yet charming little film about the frustration in finding creative inspiration. Fassbender is obviously epic in this, giving a better performance with an enormous plaster head than most actors are capable of doing without something as completely ridiculous. 186 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Night Moves (2014)

Starts off with promise and a considerable amount of suspense, but slowly starts to fizzle as the story unravels. It’s premise is solid enough, but we are offered little in terms of character motivation and backstory, beyond the obvious fact that their actions are motivated by their environmentalist backgrounds. 61 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: The Rover (2014)

Definitely not for everyone, but this was certainly a unique piece of minimalist apocalyptic sci-fi. I loved how bleakly the Outback was photographed, combined with the scattered presence of dirty, sweaty people with an imagined stench that seems to almost emanate from the screen. 46 more words

CLASSIC CONCERT: The Records @ The Bottom Line / New York, NY / September 7-8, 1979

If asked to get real specific about my favorite type of music, I guess I would say power pop: songs driven by distinctive guitar riffs with catchy hooks and harmonies, mostly sung by guys about girls. 423 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Godzilla (2014)

I don’t know why there was so much “meh” when this originally came out. I remember hearing people complaining that there “wasn’t enough smash”, but I was completely fine with having the film attempt to tell a grounded story with investable characters before having the mindless smashing unfold. 61 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: The Fault In Our Stars (2014)

I clearly wasn’t the target demographic for this film, but despite this, I found enough decent storytelling in it to find it fairly enjoyable throughout…..BECAUSE I ENJOY SUFFERING SO MUCH. 72 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: The One I Love (2014)

I literally can’t say anything about this film without spoiling it, so I’ll just say that this was a nice surprise. It’s a dramatic/comedic film about relationships with a nifty twist that feels very unique and novel. 62 more words
