“Kalifornia” Review

Kalifornia Poster

Kalifornia (1993)

Directed by Dominic Sena, “Kalifornia” centres on two couples and takes place on the road. On the one hand, we have an intelligent pair of up-and-coming journalists: Brian Kessler and Carrie Laughlin, played by David Duchovny and Michelle Forbes, who are in the midst of an important Serial Killers book project and who are eager to reach the coast of California in the hope of a better life. On the other hand, we have two beaten-down-by-life vagabonds: Early Grayce and Adele Corners, played by Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis, who are easily labelled as “white trash” in the film and who are accustomed to the life of crime and delinquency, wanting nothing more than a ride across the US at someone else’s expense.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (2016): Five Reasons for Harry Potter Fans to be Concerned

fantasticbeastsposterA new film based on a short booklet titled “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” by J.K. Rowling is scheduled to come out later this year, but is it a good idea to re-visit the Harry Potter world once again on screen?

Every re-visiting of the Harry Potter world has its consequences, and, due to the nature of the film, there will be many additions introduced to the Harry Potter world. For example, it has been confirmed that there will be additions to the wizarding world language and culture as it is presented in the U.S. The bottom line is that the Harry Potter books may not be read the same anymore, whether the change is welcoming or not.
