This film does feature a Groundhog Day like tale that is unusually, in a good way, heavy in montage and features a good cast Bruce Dern, Zachary Gordon, Bailee Madison and Peter DaCunha. However, given its trappings it doesn’t do anything to special with the formula and does, sadly, meander a bit through the second act taking too long to figure out what its ultimate path was aside from trying to improve how setpieces and tropes are handled.
As the calendar has turned to December it’s time to discuss what’s past and what’s to come, and how it may be different than in past years.
First, as you’ll not above this year will mark the 20th BAM Awards. The shortlist will come out on 24th
The Year-End Dash will still exist to an extent but it won’t feature in a running post or even that many daily reviews. I will try and rack up eligible reviews and do have much of this month, and the first quarter of 2016, scheduled with something.

This blog may have been a bit too set in its ways, but as I recently discussed I want to be more diversified even while sticking to some old themes. As I try and balance many interests, life changes, and changes here there may be some irregularity in posting new content, I hope to get “new” release reviews up again soon, but I hope to continue to tweak and improve this site and hope you’ll be willing to come along for the ride. Thanks all!
