Bob Marley: The Making of A Legend: A Critique

BOB MARLEY: MAKING OF A LEGEND was a disappointing stretch.  Had the videographer, Esther Anderson, Bob Marley’s girlfriend left the raw footage, home video segments alone, fans would have been more than satisfied.  They would have only seen, understood, and marveled at the commonality of this reggae great, a new genre innovator.  Instead, the film was compromised, unnecessarily lavished with […]

Time Traveler: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time – Film Review

Time Traveler: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was the first film I watched as part of the Hawaii International Film Festival. I went in knowing nothing about the film, or the film festival. I saw the film on a whim simply because it was a Friday night, and it sounded like it would be Sci-fi Syfy related and please the […]
