Holmes and Watson is a Good Movie?!

The film Holmes and Watson had a fun and new twist on the classic Sherlock Holmes stories.

Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 0% (Now up to 9%) despite it being a good film with impressive acting chops from both John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell. Not only is it funny but it’s an entertaining whodunnit style film that zigs right when you expect it to zag all the way throughout. There’s even a hysterical musical number thrown in without warning and I definitely appreciated it.

Homies

Sadly it is one of those comedies where you either enjoy the style or you don’t. Some reviews I’ve read compared it to Step Brothers which I’d agree with, the chemistry between John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell is undeniably perfect. They feed off one another in such a way that you’d think they were created for each other, like Laurel and Hardy.

In my book this film holds a 5 out of 6 reels.


And I’m excited to see more Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly collaborations regardless of what the critics say.

Paradise Fear Reel Review

Hello, Slicers! Here we go with another Reel Review and this time we’ll be looking at the short film Paradise Fear. Written and directed by “Zach Deering”, Paradise Fear is a sci-fi, action adventure short. It sticks to the same tense and frantic fun that we’ve come to expect from a Zach Deering original. CinemaSlice.coms Indie Film Spotlight featured two of Zach’s previous films, SAM and Nano Addiction. Both were highly entertaining. You can check out previous Reel Reviews covering SAM and Nano Addiction at CinemaSlice.com.

Two bounty hunters, played by “Michaela Romain” and “Anastasiia Greca”, are exploring the mysterious planet Paradise Sphere. Known only as a vacation destination, the planet is rumored to have some hidden secrets. As the bounty hunters are walking they observe a ship crash land onto Paradise Sphere. Paradise Sphere gunned down the ship. They begin to look for the surviving members of the wreckage. The plan is to capture the ships survivors and receive a huge payday for their bounty’s. They soon end up uncovering the secrets of Paradise Sphere that could affect the universe forever.

Roll for Experience!

How D & D has helped me become a better filmmaker

I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a bit of a nerd. In recent years, this nerdiness has manifested itself in me picking up a new hobby: Dungeons and Dragons. Upon starting to play, I’ve wondered how I went for so long without it. It is a game that offers escapism, world building, improv, teamwork, and chance in a way that I’d never experienced before.

Soon after my first roll of the dice I began to notice something else as well: the many, many shared skillsets between industry jobs and playing D&D. Depending on the play style of your group, Dungeons and Dragons has the potential to teach / reinforce many skill sets you may find yourself needing on your next project.

The list of similarities I’ve found is quite long, so to start let’s focus on one phase of filmmaking to compare: preproduction.

Slicers!

“There’s Plastic in Our Poops Now”

An online article, dated November 3, 2018, by Jason Daley, writing for the Sierra Club, revealed that a new study found plastic in Our (Human) Poop. Indeed, tiny plastic fragments and fibers were everywhere.

I thought of the Horror implications of this for our species and decided to write a song and make a video about the problem. My song, “There’s Plastic in Our Poops Now,” is not a substitute for the science behind the article. If you are interested in the article and its implications, here is the link: https://www.sierraclub.org/sierra/new-study-finds-plastic-our-poop

Conversations with Strangers – “4 New Strangers”

CinemaSlice presents: 4 new episodes of the 360-video docu-series, “Conversations with Strangers” by John Sklba.

John Sklba has done a bang-up job with this series up until now– but I assure you, the best is yet to come!

Most of us walk passed complete strangers every day, and never give that person a second thought– primarily because we’re all wrapped up in our own life– as we should be! We’re all the ‘star’ or ‘primary character’ in our individual story. But, Sklba (TN) has decided to take a moment out to meet and start a conversation with complete strangers in this series (Hence the title, Conversations with Strangers).

CinemaSlice will be releasing new interviews each and every week from Nov 19th – Dec 10th.

Watch all current episodes at CinemaSlice.com/Strangers for free, NOW!
