Hacksaw Ridge - Movie ReviewThough largely out of the limelight for the last dozen or so years – save for a turn behind the camera in 2006’s Apocalypto, a failed return to acting as a puppet-wielding alcoholic, and more than the occasional news clip of arrest, divorce, assault, and anti-Semite accusations  ...

The Birth of a Nation (2016) - Movie ReviewThough it borrows the title of D.W. Griffith’s 1915 silent film, 2016’s The Birth of a Nation isn’t a remake of that earlier film. In fact, other than the common subject of slavery in mid-nineteenth century America, the two are virtual polar opposites, with the original widely considered  ...

Deepwater Horizon - Movie ReviewMany of us recall seeing the horrendous images: oil-coated birds floundering in the surf; sticky brown suds washing ashore on the Gulf’s coast; blurry video images of oil gushing from the sea floor. That’s what we remember when someone brings up the Deepwater Horizon  ...

Operation Avalanche - Movie ReviewWhen the results are this hilarious, who needs sophistication?  Filmmaker Matt Johnson (The Dirties) and co-conspirator Owen Williams return to playing themselves in their second feature, Operation Avalanche.  It is a comedy thriller that walks and talks like a documentary  ...

The Devil's Dolls - Movie ReviewWe are entering the season of the horror film, Ghouls and Boils. What fun! With each minute ticking past the dog days of summer, the public’s tolerance for all things disturbing grows.  And I LOVE it.  We’ve already had our fair share of frightfully good releases, though  ...

Snowden - Movie ReviewFor decades, filmmaker Oliver Stone has been running around frantically pulling his hair out in a “the entire system’s out of line” rage. Though his conspiracy theories have ranged from the ludicrously misrepresented to the virtually non-existent, the one thing that  ...

Sully - Movie ReviewDirector Clint Eastwood faces a tough task in attempting to bring to life the heroic story of American pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger who, back in 2009, safely landed his US Airways plane in the Hudson River after both engines failed following a bird strike. After all,  ...

Transpecos - Movie ReviewThe border.  Joni Mitchell sang about it.  Cormac McCarthy’s prose is filled with its beauty.  As a nation, we are obsessed with its divide.  For Austin filmmaker Greg Kwedar, borders are to be explored because, at the end of a very long day, they define us.  His film, Transpecos, ...

Sausage Party - Movie ReviewEat your heart out, Tex Avery.  The cartoon spoof to end all others has arrived.   Sausage Party, while often crass, is a banging affair.  It’s safe to say that – in an animated war against humans – processed meat products win in the end.  The highs of the movie might not be  ...

Suicide Squad - Movie ReviewWell, Ladies and Gentlemen, we are currently three films into DC comics newly introduced cinematic universe.  The result is none too pleasing.  With Zack Snyder at the helm, he has done little to impress most audiences – myself included.  With Man of Steel receiving  ...
