American Sniper - Movie ReviewWhere have you been, Mr. Eastwood? We missed you. Thought consigned to the dustbin of once relevant filmmakers, Clint Eastwood comes roaring back with American Sniper, the true story of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in American military history. ...

Inherent Vice - Movie ReviewYou know there’s going to be an issue with a movie, set on California’s west coast during the drugged-out ex-hippie year of 1970, when Benicio del Toro is playing the one and only straight man.  Playing for normal, you know, isn’t exactly his forte.  Maybe this wouldn’t be a problem ...

Dumb and Dunmber To - Movie ReviewIt will more than likely go down as the crown prince of sequels that should have never been made. Twenty years is waaaay too long to stay loyal to two rubber-faced morons charging their way through one odd social interaction to the next. Dumb and Dumber To is adequately  ...

Calvary - Movie ReviewWriter/director John Michael McDonagh returns with a vengeance in Calvary, a dark comedy that expertly juggles the sacred with the profane.  The film takes its name from the hill where Jesus was crucified and, yes, it deals with sacrifice as one priest knowingly faces life  ...
