Interview with Anvil

CFN “reporter” and resident metalhead Neil T. Weakley recently caught up with the band Anvil at their movie premiere. Neil: How did director Sacha Gervasi go from being your roadie, to writing a Spielberg movie (“The Terminal”), to directing your movie? Anvil: We met Sacha when he was 15 years old and basically turned his…

I Love You, Man Review

Paul Rudd is making quite the name for himself as the go-to guy for comedies right now.  I liked “Role Models”.  It was pretty funny.  But was “I Love You, Man” funny too? Paul Rudd plays Peter Klaven, a man who has never really had a best friend, at least, not one that was a…

Watchmen Review

Finally.  After so many years of rumors, being told it couldn’t be done, someone finally did it.  The film “Watchmen” is a fairly monumental task.  But, Zack Snyder, director of “300”, took the challenge.  And you know what?  He made it work.

Never Say MacBeth Review

  Hey, it’s indie spotlight time!  This one is called “Never Say Macbeth”, directed by Christopher J. Prouty.  The title refers to a superstition among theater performers that believe it is just about the worst thing you can do to say the name “Macbeth” in a theater.  To do so brings horrible bad luck to…
