A Director's Cut: Monsters in the Woods is out

"In 2012 my creature feature, Monsters in the Woods was released. Due to several outside restrictions, it wasn't the movie I had envisioned, and it never got the kind of release it deserved. Well, in 2016, after a lengthy rights battle I finally got the movie back and was able to re-edit and release it however I saw fit. 

A Director's Cut: Monsters in the Woods has been re-edited from top to bottom. The structure has been changed, alternate takes and footage have been Incorporated. This is the movie I meant it to be.

And now with a much wider distribution net, it'll be seen by most for the first time."

That's pretty much that.

So here it is for the world to see.

My acclaimed indie - Trap is exclusive on Amazon

I made a pretty damn decent indie flick a few years back for only a few thousand dollars. It got some good reviews and is now available exclusively on Amazon (indie filmmakers new best friend.)

Anyway, here's our video of the month.

Gas Money Pictures

It's been around for a little while, but me and fellow director/editor James L. Bills are launching Gas Money Pictures in a bigger way, primarily as a post-production company specializing in commercials, corporate videos and feature films.

My Super-controversial Tarantino Rankings (with little to no explanation)

In order of best to not quite his best (he hasn't made a bad movie)

1. Django Unchained

This was a tough one to place, and I wish I had a better reason, but I was just straight-up entertained beginning to end.

2. Resevior Dogs

I still believe this to be the tightest of his flicks. Plus it really opened my eyes to what independent films could be.

3. Kill Bill

Wild and crazy.

4. Pulp Fiction

Perfect follow-up to Resevior Dogs, first to really give us a glimpse of the director to come.

5. Inglorious Bastards

This one has grown on me with repeat viewings. I would've put it lower a few years back.
6. Hateful 8

I have a feeling this one will rise in the years to come too.

7. Jackie Brown

Most unentertaining to me... A lot of dialog feels like someone else riffing on him. But still a good movie.

8. Death Proof.
The only movie of his I've never revisited. I remember kinda liking it, but that's pretty faint praise for Tarantino.
