Movie Review: Walk of Fame (2017)

Drew (Scott Eastwood, “The Longest Ride”) is a guy who hates his job. When he runs into an attractive woman, he decides to join the same acting school she attends, for no other reason than that he wants to — in his words — “bang her.” Hijinks follow, he makes friends while learning a lesson…

Movie Review: Almost Friends (2016)

Many people can relate, and even confess, to being unmotivated in life. When ambition has disappeared and all our fears of rejection and failure become all too realistic, we retreat into what is comfortable.

It begins with the start of a breakup and ends with, well, the end of the breakup, so there are few plot-based surprises in its compact running time that barely exceeds 15 minutes. Instead, Håskjold is content…
