Welcome back to the series where I post the behind-the-scenes details of our Just Scare Me Horror Shorts.
Mother’s Milk was an all-out success for Erica and me. We had many goals to meet under our criteria: To shoot a shorter and much cheaper short, but I also wanted to use it to further strengthen my writing skills. Mission Accomplished. Except, the Just Scare Me “Machine” keeps on moving and with this next short, I wanted to make something that had never been made before. And I found the perfect inspiration for our next short: my old roommate, Alex.
It’s that time of year again (or rather it’s long overdue)! Where I take my favorite films of the year, and arbitrarily order them to my liking for all of you to read. I’m quite needy, right? Not only that, but they’re never as easy as one might expect them to be, and 2016 was no exception.
Once again, like the Top 15 of 2015, this list is a collection derived from both the caliber of the films and how they impacted me on a personal level.

So naturally, there will be some surprises. But first–Read More »
I honestly never expected to write a #ConTENder post for an R-Rated, raunchy, animated foray into the Pixar-like “behind the curtain” film (a lá Toy Story), but here I am: Sausage Party is one of the funniest films of the year.
Now for those of you who aren’t fans of Seth Rogen (or his films), will undoubtedly disagree with this post. This movie won’t change your mind on co-writers Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s type of humor, and it’s not meant to.Read More »
Here is our fourth episode for our Youtube show, We Need Movies! Watch as Brandon Doyen and Jamie Gagnon (me) discuss the week of film: movie releases, Dvd/Blu-ray purchases, News of the Week, and a special segment every week!
This week’s special segment: We discuss amazing actors turned directed and their films; the best of which are:Read More »
People were worried what the success of Deadpool and its R rating would bring to the superhero genre (me included). The fear that every film would be reactionary to said success worried fans and filmmakers alike. But one thing that no one ever expected what the negative backlash from Batman V. Superman would bring (not even Ben Affleck).
My friend August will undoubtedly hate this, but I myself am at a standstill. While I think that the overtly serious tone of BVS muddied the characters and the sheer entertainment behind such a clash, the fact they have to lighten this film up due to the more fun feeling of the trailer worries me more, and for multiple reasons.
Parring down this massive list of 368 movies into my favorite list of just ten is a scary thought. So I determined that I would have to do at least a Top 20.
Naturally, I’ve removed the ability for the #ReWatch365 movies to make this list. This is truly my favorite of the new movies I’ve seen this year.
I will make a separate Top 10 for the movies released in 2015, and those will be based on the quality and my personal tastes (coming soon).
In an attempt to differentiate from the 2015 Best Of list, this list will feature the movies that really spoke to me, ones that gave me a feeling that permeated quality, and filled me with personal substance. Yeah, intense.
But first, here are some Honorable Mentions from the #DLMChallenge 2015 (The ones in boldnearly made the list):Read More »
