Lucy - Movie ReviewBummer. Well, at least Lucy looks pretty. The return of Luc Besson to the director’s chair after the massive failure of The Family doesn’t come without a few glitches as he guides Scarlett Johansson through a criminal underworld full of drug smugglers. She is, after all, the   ...

To Be Takei - Movie ReviewThe seemingly impossible rise of the man who played Mr. Sulu in Star Trek many, many moons ago as a modern day cultural icon and gay rights activist is, in itself, worthy of attention. It’s a story that has its beginnings here in America inside bleak internment camps   ...

Video Games: The Movie - Movie ReviewLike the movie industry, video games and the people who design them have had their fair share of ups and downs. There is a landfill full of E.T. Atari cartridges to remind folks of the low period if you are in doubt. Unlike the movie industry, they’ve always had a target on  ...

Life Itself - Movie ReviewRoger Ebert might have been robbed of his ability to talk but he was never robbed of his voice. That’s the point of director Steve James’ documentary about this recently passed true American icon. That and to make you cry. This touching portrait of a critic  ...

Sex Tape - Movie ReviewThe modern technology of iPads, camcorders, and cloud computing clashes with the age-old challenges of how to keep marriage fresh in Sex Tape, a big wild comedy that begins with a promising idea but ultimately falls on its unfunny face. That promising idea comes   ...

The Purge: Anarchy - Movie ReviewKill or be killed. That’s the thematic thrust behind The Purge mythos as the real America totters on the ever increasing gulf between the rich and the poor. The surprise hit of last year’s The Purge meant a sequel would follow soon. Well, here it is. Writer/director ...

Earth to Echo - Movie ReviewFrom its owl-eyed main character resembling an aluminum-girded Furby doll, to a nauseatingly unrelenting camera technique (you just THOUGHT the shaky-cam had claimed its last victim), there’s an aura of garish cheapness that permeates nearly every frame of  ...

Tammy - Movie ReviewTammy means well. She really does but this road trip comedy is as unfunny as its trailers suggest. Co-written and directed by Melissa McCarthy’s husband, actor Ben Falcone, the film suffers from lack of vision; there is a better movie here just dying to come out. McCarthy’s  ...

Tranformers: Age of Extinction - Movie ReviewThe good news is that Steven Spielberg’s favorite bad boy Shia LaBouf isn’t involved with Transformers: Age of Extinction ... The bad news is that director Michael Bay still is which means Transformers: Age of Extinction is still PT-inducing entertainment, if it can be ...

Jersey Boys - Movie ReviewThe stage has gone dark, Mr. Eastwood. Lights out.  Time to go home.  There’s really no explanation for this bizarrely grueling adaptation of what has been described as a fun and lively Broadway play. Nominated for several Tony Awards and still running strong, Jersey ...
