Random Thoughts of a Movie Insomniac. Vol 14

Hello everyone.

How is everyone’s week doing so far. I want to thank everyone for leaving comments on this site and for all the new followers as well. It’s been a while since I did a recap of what I watched, and I did manage to see some new ones in the theaters. I still need to see “Inside Out” and I hope to do that very soon. Enjoy.

The Vern feels something crawling under his skin so he reviews “Bug” instead.

Cast: Katherine Prebie, Aaron Henry, Eli Coats

Writer: Tracy Letts

Director: Justin M. Kirkeberg

 I don’t go to the theater much. Wait that doesn’t sound right.  That implies that I do go, just not very often.  The theater is a venue whose presence once intimidated me.  No, no, no, that only comes off that I think all stage actors are snobbish.  Which makes me sound like an A-hole.  Hmmm.  How do I open this review?…….. Oh yeah! I got it.  I am too broke to attend the theater.  Most plays that run in my area cost way more then your average  movie ticket price Some single tickets can cost more then a  3D I-MAX at night for a large family with snacks too.   So when I see an ad for this play on Facebook and it says “Chose your Own Price”, I became very interested.   I have seen the film version directed by William Friedkin with Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon and I really wanted to see the original play that it was based upon.  I get to the box office and find out that the choose your own price method was on a different day.  I was about to leave and come back a different day.  When the lady behind the counter let me in with the price I could afford to see this play.  That incredibly nice woman was Angela Walberg and she is the marketing producer over at Shadow Horse Theater(links will appear at end of review) and I thank her for letting my broke ass  attend the show.

Jurassic World is one of the worst movies of the summer.

Jurassic World

Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onfrio.

Director: Collin Trevorrow

I got a free pass to check out this latest adventure, and now I wish I would have stayed at home.  How in the world could one of the best movies of all time sink so low.  Never in my life have I felt so ashamed for a movie series as I do this.  I can’t even blame the sequels because at least they had some consistency to them.  But this was just one of the most dumbest movies ever put on the screen… Continue reading

The Vern honors some great online critics

Crowd 2Hello Everyone.  It’s been a quite stressful week for yours truly and I have not had much of a chance to write many reviews.   I hosted and helped promote a movie premiere in my home state called American Rescue Squad(click link to read my review), and while the turn out wasn’t what I wanted.  Everyone who was in the production of it was very nice and I made some great friends.    I also found out that in order for me to stay in my apartment for another lease I haft to pay over $945 dollars on top of my rent.  So, it looks like I’m in search for a new place to live.  Remember if anyone wants me to live with them.  They get full access to all of my Laserdisc titles.     The LAMB(Large Association of Movie Blogs) had their MOTM(Movie Of The Month. God I hate explaining all of these anagrams) for May and I won with my choice of Spring Breakers.  You  can listen to the show and read all of the other great articles by clicking below.


I was also nominated by 3 great critics for awards and I am very humble that any would nominate me for anything.  I try my best to check out everyone’s site, but I don’t always have the time to do so. Shit, there are so many of us that it’s hard to keep up with you all.  So please keep in mind that if you did comment or like what I wrote and you didn’t get a nomination.  It doesn’t mean I hate what you do.  It’s just hard for me to keep track of everyone in this big blogasphere movie loving world.  So without further to do.  Let’s get cracking on what these awards are and who I nominated.

2015 MSP International Film Festival: Tu Dors Nicole

MSPIFFI’m continuing my coverage of the Minneapolis/St.Paul International Film Festival with my review of the french comedy “Tu Dors Nicole(You’re Sleeping Nicole)”.  I apologize if I don’t have any photos from the event, but in all honesty.  I don’t own a camera, and even if I did.  There wasn’t much for me to shoot.  Most of the time when a screening got over, most people went home.  While I stayed around to hopefully mingle with other critics.  They were never around but I did manage to meet a few filmmakers.  Some of them were extremely nice in getting me info, while others just shot me down.  I have class so I won’t so who.  Well without my ranting anymore.  Let’s get on with the show.


Tu Dors Nicole

Cast:  Julianne Cole,Marc-Andre Grondin,Catherine St. Laurent
Writers:  Stephane Lafleur,   Valérie Beaugrand-Champagne
Director:  Stephane Lafleur
