Several years back Zombieland was filmed in Valdosta, and if you check on IMDB not many other films have been made here. From what I understand the city give the production a lot of problems while filming it and we may not have another big film made around here.
Zombieland 2 is currently being written and I would really love if they came back to film again. What would you do to try and get this made, or if you know of something else that should be filmed here let's discuss it!
10 Cloverfield Lane came out a few weeks ago but if you haven't seen it you should!
The big sites review it as: IMDB 7.8/10 Rotten Tomatoes 90% fans 83% Metacritic 76/100 fans 7.8. This told me going in that it was a smart film and very enjoyable, and that's exactly what I thought about the film!
John Goodman did an excellent job of being the primary antagonist in the film, his character is always between creepy and completely terrifying! Mary Elizabeth Winstead who I love as an actress did an excellent job as the protagonist, you will feel as she does throughout the film!
The connections to Cloverfield are there but are very hard to see, well at first anyway. SPOILERS AHEAD: If you want to know more about the ARG check out this Reddit and website. I do not suggest clicking on those links until after you see the film!!!
What do I rate this film as? 9/10 It's nearly perfect, I really hope that they make another soon!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the newest superhero film out the big rating sites put the film at IMDB 7.5/10, Metacritic 44/100 user 7.5, and Rotten Tomatoes 29% user 73%. The ratings themselves told me that the film was likely to be enjoyable but likely not too smart. After watching the movie that's exactly what I felt.
The actors I feel did exactly what the director wanted. I thought going in that the largest issue with the film for me would be Ben Affleck as Batman, but I think he did a decent job I don't think he was the worst out of the others that have played the part. What did bother me the most was Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, his portrayal of Lex Luthor had elements of the character but ultimately didn't feel like Lex. I don't think this reflects on his acting ability, but I do think the character was written incorrectly. Some people were concerned about the casting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, but I think that she did a fine job.
The largest failure was poor CGI in places.. For the most part they did a good job, but it was easy to tell where they were cutting corners, I don't really feel that it impacted the film that much but it will annoy some people.
If you hope to see much of the flash, aquaman, and cyborg you will be let down because they only have seconds the film. But what you do see of these characters may leave you wanting more, at least it did with me.
What would I give this film? I would say an 8/10 it's not perfect, it's not bad, but it's a very enjoyable if you don't go in looking for problems (look for them later!).
It appears that two things are in the news currently with Donald Trump coming to town.
1. VSU may have broke their own policies to allow the campaign to go to the campus. So this begs a question, if VSU is willing to break their own policies which candidate should they allow next if they were to ask?
2. Protesting will not be allowed at the event due to federal law, HR 347.

Flat Land, a band from Gainesville, FL, was selected by popular vote as the winner of
Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival’s “Battle of the Bands” after competing in an international
competition including over 750 artists. The band will be playing alongside acts such as Mumford
& Sons, Robert Plant, Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, and Hall & Oates, among many other prominent
musicians. Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival is in its inaugural year, and will take place March
46, 2016 in Okeechobee, FL.
“We couldn’t be more honored to have an opportunity like this. Some of the musicians playing
this festival are our heroes. It’s a dream come true to have a chance to play at the same event.”
said Fae Nageon de Lestang, lead singer/violinist of Flat Land.
Flat Land has grabbed national attention from their distinct sound and high energy live
performances, and has steadily built a grassroots fan base across the Eastern United States.
The band has played other major music festivals such as Suwannee Hulaween, and was also
recognized as MusicFestNews “Artist On the Rise” this past year.
The ethereal funk fusion quintet has a sound inspired by artists such as Beck, Led Zeppelin,
Alabama Shakes, and Hiatus Kaiyote. Led by frontwoman Fae Nageon de Lestang (a
descendant of pirates with buried treasure somewhere off the east coast of Africa), on vocals
and electric violin, their live performances are a manifestation of a modern disco mixed with a
70s rock concert.
Outside of the studio, the band spends their time working to promote music education within
their community. Flat Land founded Future Music Makers this past spring along with electronic
duo Bells & Robes and marketing firm Phairground. The organization works to create
opportunities for youth to foster creativity and a passion for music in north central Florida.
