I recently watched a foreign film that took three years to complete because of a limited budget. Pather Panchali was filmed in West Bengal, and is the first of the Apu Trilogy. Its success soon led to the production of Aparajito and The World of Apu. Claimed as the greatest movies of all time in the history of Indian cinema, I knew I had to watch Pather Panchali to see if it was good enough for Granny’s Insomnia Theatre Collection.

Get-out

I’ve heard about “Get Out” and, may have seen some advertising for the film, but I had not watched it.

I was a bit puzzled with the nomination, especially since the trailers for the film were anything but funny. There is certainly lots of controversy surrounding the film’s placement, but is it a comedy, or a well written horror story? Find out after the jump. Continue reading

I’ve been seeing dead people since I was a toddler. This ability/gift runs on both sides of the family. My mother and father inherited their gifts from their mothers.
