    Come to Daddy!

    Where do I begin with Come to Daddy? I have no idea where to start with this film. This film wasn’t anything I thought it’d be when I first read the listing for it my TriBeCa handbook. I then decided to go into producer Ant Timpson’s, producer of The Greasy Strangler, directorial debut about a man who goes and visits his estranged father only to be met with disturbing circumstances with a mix of excitement and trepidation.

    Everything is NOT Awesome in The Lego Movie Sequel

    “The Lego Movie” was a truly unique and game changing film when it debuted back in 2014. It showed that a film that shilled a product didn’t necessarily have to be a sad, cynical cash grab. Under the helm of Chris Lord & Phil Miller, the men behind MTV cult hit, “Clone High,” the “21 Jump Street” films, a version of “SOLO” we will never see and the recent smash hit, “Into the Spider-Verse,” the film boasted top notch animation, an unbearably catchy theme song and a nice moral about embracing your own creativity and what makes you special. Sadly, ‘special’ is not an adjective I can use to describe…
