A week or two has passed now since most sites have posted their end of the year write-ups, and I still find myself debating what to put on my movie list. After much self degradation I have finally come to terms with the fact that my list will be nothing like that of the Oscar’s […]Read more "HST 2014 in Review: Movies"

Robert Redford’s latest is a fine looking and produced telling of a fairly unknown story in American history that fails to really excel to anything more than a straight forward court room drama that serves as a parallel to our modern day travails with prosecuting through Guantanamo Bay. Now you might ask how a movie […]Read more "Review: The Conspirator"

The film follows an ensemble of intertwining characters and couples, for instance Jennifer […]Read more "Review: He’s Just Not That Into You"
Kevin Smith’s latest is a hilarious, raunchy, and sweet look at two friends’ platonic relationship that probably was meant to be more but never was.
