Film Review: Magic & Creativity is Formula for ‘Dave Made a Maze’

Chicago – When the magnificently creative film “Dave Made a Maze” begins, it seems like another Millennial generation stab at micro budget filmmaking, with a claustrophobic set and extreme archetypes instead of characters. But then the “exploration” of the title maze starts, and suddenly “Dave” becomes a marvel of invention, tribute, hilarity and even truth.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

A passionate group of filmmakers got together with a strange idea… what if they were to send this group of archetypes into a cardboard fort that a frustrated artist has built, a group that includes his offbeat lover? And what if once inside that maze, the magic begins, as rooms become expansive and tests the will of the search party, transporting them into fantasies of their favorite adventure films from the last 40 years. Oh yeah, and there has to be a film-within-a-film that a hapless documentary crew is trying to make. Does this sound like

Review: ‘Dave Made a Maze’ Has Diy Charm and Humor

The premise is silly: stunted artist who’s never finished a project in his life finds inspiration through cardboard boxes and their ability to be molded into a literal labyrinth he’s already erected virtually inside his mind to ensure he will never fail (or succeed) since such a final verdict only comes with completion. So bogged down in existential dread—and made to endure it while girlfriend Annie (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) is out-of-town for a much-needed reprieve from his slacker-infused excuses—Dave (Nick Thune) allows its weight to force him into an abyss of despair he cannot escape alone. The only avenue towards freedom is ultimately found by going farther inward. Dave must finish something, everything … anything. He must commit to the work, to Annie, and to himself.

While that all sounds like some crazy on-the-nose metaphor performed through imaginative dream, you’re only going to find yourself half right.

Official Trailer for Bill Watterson's Indie Comedy 'Dave Made a Maze'

"If you want to survive this fantasy world, think outside the boxes." Holy mackerel, this looks amazing!! Gravitas has unveiled an official trailer for an indie comedy titled Dave Made a Maze, about an artist who builds a huge fort in his living room out of cardboard. The clever concept here is that as soon as you enter the maze, it turns into something much bigger. Dave builds the maze out of pure frustration, only to end up trapped by the "fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation." This stars Nick Thune, Meera Rohit Kumbhani, James Urbaniak, Stephanie Allynne, Kirsten Vangsness, plus Scott Krinsky. Ohh it looks like it's going to be so, so much fun, kind of like Michel Gondry meets the Duplass Brothers, or something like that. This really does seem like a certified instant cult classic. I'm ready to enter. Here's the first official

Chuck Ep. 5.13, “Chuck Versus the Goodbye” provides a surprising, emotionally satisfying finale

Chuck Review, Season 5, Episode 13, “Chuck Versus the Goodbye”

Written by Chris Fedak

Directed by Robert Duncan McNeill

Airs Fridays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

After five seasons and 90 episodes, Chuck has finally reached its closing act, and the show’s primary relationship is still up in the air. Chuck Bartowski and Sarah Walker have encountered many ups and downs over the years, and their ultimate happiness is well-deserved. It’s too bad that it’s not that simple. Sarah’s still trying to recover her memories, which include the feelings that grew for Chuck. This emotional undercurrent of her search drives the finale, even when their last mission (the third one!) gets rolling. Chuck convinces Sarah to let him tag along with her to find the evil Nicolas Quinn (Angus Macfayden), but her approach is cold and clinical. A happy ending should be inevitable for the couple, but the spy

Chuck Season 5 Episodes 12 & 13 Review (Series Finale): Chuck vs. the Goodbye

If the series finale of Chuck wasn’t a proper farewell, I do not know what is. These final two hours of Chuck were the most beautiful love letters to the fans, cast, crew, and everyone involved in supporting Chuck over these five incredible seasons. The comedy, the action, the romance, the geek references… it all came to an end last night in the most perfect way. Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak did not disappoint. Everyone poured their heart and soul into the finale and it showed. What a beautiful ending.

“Wow, it’s all ending, huh?” – Morgan

In Chuck vs. Sarah, Chuck (Zachary Levi) did not have to go far to find Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) as she made her way back to Burbank… for Chuck’s spy resources in her mission to take down Quinn. The mention of Bryce’s name was the first butterfly to flutter and there

‘Chuck’ Series Finale Review & Discussion

In 2007, Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak’s geek-inspired spy series Chuck premiered on NBC and the notion of a fan-driven series was forever defined. Battling continuous intents of cancelation, as well as nasty writer’s strikes, television’s proverbial ‘little series that could’ proved that a cult show can not only be saved by its fans, but it can also evolve into something wonderful, if only given a chance.

Starting out as a series about the geek-turned-spy Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi), NBC’s Chuck quickly took hold of all the geek cred that it received from fans and championed on for 5 years. Turning a series about one reluctant man against a world of bad guys into a hilariously referential ensemble series, which saw the entire cast join in on the fight – including Jeff (Scott Krinsky) and Lester (Vik ...

A Farewell to Chuck: The Little Spy Series that Could

Just like in the children’s tale of the “little engine that could,” Chuck was a television show that kept on chugging away against all odds and carved out a place in television history by running five seasons on the sheer will-power of its fans. Millions of Subway sandwiches later, the fans are still passionately devoted to their show. Having coined the phrases: Nerd Herd, Buy More and Captain Awesome, as well as creating a whole new dialect comprised of “the Intersect”, “flashes” and “Jeffster” and redefining what it means when a TV show is “on the bubble,” Chuck is now legendary. It not only created a universally-accepted and widely used lexicon, Chuck also introduced characters which fans fell in love with from around the globe. As the cast will soon discover, fans are not quick to forget their beloved characters and the names: Chuck, Sarah, Casey, Morgan, Ellie, Awesome,

Chuck's Final Mission Intel, Part 2: There Will Be Big Fun (and Big-Budget Action!)

Chuck's Final Mission Intel, Part 2: There Will Be Big Fun (and Big-Budget Action!)
“Big.” “Epic.” And “very much like a movie.” According to Chuck cocreator Chris Fedak, that is what fans can expect from the NBC spy comedy’s two-hour series finale, airing this Friday starting 8/7c.

Speaking with reporters during a location shoot at a concert hall that was decked out for a sequence from the series-ender, Fedak said, “If you’ve noticed, we’ve spent a lot of money. We’re a little over budget. In fact, there may be a few people looking for me now! But it’s a long episode, and we go to a lot of different places.

'Chuck' finale: Vik Sahay and Scott Krinsky discuss the final Jeffster! performance, leaving the Buy More

In Part 2 of Zap2it's "Chuck" finale extravaganza, we talked separately with the members of Jeffster!, Vik Sahay and Scott Krinsky. Be sure to read our chat with Yvonne Strahovski and Adam Baldwin too.

There will be, arguably, more important moments in the series finale of "Chuck" than the reunion of Jeffster! for one last performance. But that final song is also arguably one of the most anticipated moments of the final episode.

We know there is a Jeffster! song in Friday's (Jan. 27) finale -- we heard a bit of playback when we watched a bit of filming in December. NBC has asked to keep the tune a secret, but we can let Vik Sahay and Scott Krinsky tell you a little bit about it.

"I really feel like the criteria must be 'What's the most difficult song for Vik to sing? That's how we'll choose our music!'" Sahay says.

‘Chuck’ Season 5 Episode 11 Review: Chuck vs. the Bullet Train

Chuck began with a very special opening title, one fans will definitely appreciate especially since this was not the series finale and fans would love nothing more for familiarity come then. Perhaps the original opening awaits us in the finale episode? No matter, this week was the calm before the storm and an almost movie like opening set the tone perfectly for this week and the final episode. Embrace the movie like opening, people because this is it.

In “Chuck vs. the Bullet Train,” Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) and John Casey (Adam Baldwin) are on a mission to rescue Chuck (Zachary Levi), to Chuck’s surprise, with the intersect in Sarah’s head. Chuck was understandably worried about this result but watching the two later bond over how awesome the intersect benefits are was quite a moment. There are not many people on the earth who have had the intersect in their head,

'Chuck's Scott Krinsky and Vik Sahay Talk Finale and the Fans
In five years, Chuck has done some of the most amazing things -- things that few other television shows could do. Despite being on the bubble at almost every season ending, Chuck always found a way to bounce in the right direction, thanks to its steadfast fanbase. Despite not being signed on for a full fifth season, it is because of the fans that we get to see these 13 episodes. Scott Krinsky and Vik Sahay acknowledged this during a recent Chuck set visit.

‘Chuck’ Season 5 Episode 10 Review: Chuck vs. Bo

In “Chuck vs. Bo,” Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) wasted no time in coming straight out about her thoughts of quitting the spy game to Chuck (Zachary Levi) and shift Carmichael Industries to an office job rather than a field job. But before this transition began, the team took some of their spy gear to Colorado for one last mission where Morgan (Joshua Gomez) was reunited with Bo Derek….his past “lover!” The first thing that surely came to everyone’s mind was, when did that happen? The next thought… what is Bo up to now in the world of Chuck? The title of the episode clearly details Bo as the bad guy. So it came as no surprise that Bo was involved with the case of the intersect. Is it safe to say she is our final female villain? Either way, it all made for one of the most entertaining episodes this season.

Chuck Ep. 5.10, “Chuck Versus Bo”: Never say “one last mission”

Chuck Review, Season 5, Episode 10, “Chuck Versus Bo”

Written by Kristin Newman

Directed by Jeremiah Chechik

Airs Fridays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

Throughout the tumultuous history of TV and movies, there has been one constant rule. Characters should never talk about taking “one last mission.” Variations on this law include one last score, one last job, or even one last night out with the guys. It’s all bad news. This makes Chuck and Sarah’s decision to take one last spy mission a thorny proposition. They recognize the dire ramifications of this move, but there’s no choice. They must take the chance and go against the conventional wisdom. This pop-culture precedent bodes poorly for their trip to Vail, even if the stakes are worth the risk. The location of a pair of Intersect sunglasses (another one?) is the invaluable prize, and they’re not the only people looking for it.

Chuck Sneak Peek: Will They Quit the Spy Business?

Chuck Sneak Peek: Will They Quit the Spy Business?

There are just two episodes left before the big Chuck series finale on January 27 and this season has focused on what the future holds for these characters and a big question mark hangs over their future career options. We have already seen the gang turn down a return to the CIA and the idea of raising a family has been getting louder as the season has progressed, with Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) mistakenly thinking she was pregnant last week (check out our review here). Don't get too cosy yet as the final villain that they will be facing is introduced this week and it looks like he is set upon causing some major havoc.

The mission this week involves fallout from Morgan's (Joshua Gomez) time as the Intersect which means he has to get those delightful frosted tips back. It also strangely

Chuck Season 5 Episode 9 Review: Chuck vs. the Kept Man

This week’s episode of Chuck took a back seat in exhilaration and heart pounding action. Ordinarily, a break from all of the action would be fitting but with these being the final episodes of the series… much is expected. And unfortunately there was not enough action… or comedy. Last night’s episode actually seemed rather slow moving. With such dynamite episodes in the past few weeks, this change of pace did not go unnoticed. So while this episode does not stand out among the rest, it did provide for some entertainment.

In “Chuck vs. the Kept Man,” John Casey (Adam Baldwin) rekindles the fire with Gertrude Verbanski (Carrie-Anne Moss) who also becomes the first client of Carmichael Industries ever since their C.A.R.E. Mission Statement released. Let it be noted that Moss and Baldwin’s chemistry is off the charts! Chuck (Zachary Levi) is so clever and so human!
