The Nashville Film Festival has arrived, and over the next week, I will be covering the festival and all of the films that I watch. From Short films to Documentaries to Featured Films and more, the festival is filled, with movies that range from all sorts of genres.
Another Day in the books, here is what I watched on day three of the festival.
First, as we kicked off the film, the movie’s feel was very low budget feeling, and while I wasn’t sure how to kind of take it.
Speaking of the low budget feeling, the acting was terrible. I felt like it was supposed to be like that, but I am unsure of that.
This was a disaster, the script was bad, the direction was bad, and it was just not good at all.
The Next Time (short film)
So, it had beautiful cinematography, and well, that’s about it. Just awkwardly shot, and the screenplay didn’t feel like it had a point to it.
I felt like this had a strong concept, but the writer felt like they were in over their heads throughout the movie.
Campy nature creature movies can work, but this just lacked the execution, the acting, the writing, and specific reason for us, the viewer, to care about what’s about to happen.
Overall a very lackluster movie.
