That Awkward Moment - Movie ReviewThere’s probably a logical reason first-time screenwriter Tom Gormican’s script for Are We Officially Dating? languished in the unproduced screenplays bin for the better part of the last four years. Perhaps it had something to do with waiting on a replacement for ...

Gimme Shelter - Movie Review Former Disney Channel go-to-girl Vanessa Hudgens musses her hair and tattoos her hide for a grungy turn in Gimme Shelter, a film that disguises its right-wing, Christian fairy tale intentions beneath what it thinks is a tough, gritty facade of societal misgivings.  It’s the ...

Hercules - Movie ReviewI hope I am around to see the day that filmmakers in Hollywood can actually produce a gripping, enticing, and all around satiating Greek mythological epic. However, in their latest endeavor, The Legend of Hercules, disappointment reigns supreme once more. Every ...

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - Movie ReviewAnyone tired of the reboot without reason?  If you’re not and like your money to support the generic, then Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is the movie for you.  The uninspired title tells you everything you need to know about this flick.  The character has been dormant ...

In this Ben Stiller directed adaptation of James Thurber’s 1939 short story; Stiller seems to miss his mark. Let us pause ...

August: Osage County - Movie ReviewWith a swollen cast boasting no fewer than a half dozen A-listers – not to mention an equal number of character actors, there’s a lot of acting firepower vying for attention in John Wells’s August: Osage County. Fortunately for viewers, there’s ample material to go ...

In a World - Movie ReviewLake Bell, after surviving the supporting actress stranglehold for a number of years, breaks out on her own with In a World…, a movie she writes, directs, and stars in.  The movie subverts the romantic comedy genre by humorously tackling the male-dominated ...

The Book Thief - Movie ReviewThere’s a bothersome disconnect between the story being told in The Book Thief and what we see on the screen.
