Trespass Against Us

  Trespass Against Us  is a movie that is not filled with action and lacks an exciting dramaturgical side so therefore it  becomes less inspiring as a whole. The countryside of what might be Ireland is beautiful yes, but the scenery is nothing extraordinary so the movie didn’t win many points in that perspective either. The film lacks excitement and […]

Trespass Against Us

Trespass Against Us is a British crime drama film that is directed by Adam Smith and written by Alastair Siddons. The film stars has some big names, the only one I knew though was Michael Fassbender.

The 36th annual Hawaii International Film Festival, What a blast!

During the 36th annual Hawaii International Film Festival I watched three movies. Two of them: Finding Kukan, and Prison Dogs were documentaries, while the last one That Demon Within was an action movie. The reason for my choice of movies was that for Finding Kukan I was involved in the making of its film premiere poster. Also talking to the […]

Those particular films were of interest to me because of their relevance to the island and their […]
