The Great Gatsby - Movie Review “That’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” So articulates the charmingly demure socialite Daisy Buchanan from the pages of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel, The Great Gatsby. As characterized by Fitzgerald, she had “the kind of voice that ...

The Iceman - Movie Review You know Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon’s face.  You just don’t know his name.  You will, though.  Mark my words.  You will.  Threatening enough for you?  Well, it just might be.  He plays, after all, a cold-blooded killer in Ariel Vroman’s The Iceman ...

42 - Movie Review Jackie Robinson still matters.  Major League Baseball, retiring his number at the end of this year with Yankee closer Mariano Rivera’s last season, knows this.  Writer/director Brian Helgeland also knows this and the language of his new movie, 42, documents the ugly ...

Room 237 - Movie ReviewGather around all you conspiracy theorists.  You know who you are. If Elvis hasn’t yet left the building or if the most powerful people in the world are actually blood thirsty, extra-terrestrial, shapeshifting reptiles, then have I got a tale for you. Labeled as ...

The Call - Movie ReviewThe heroes of our nation’s 911 call centers, masquerading as the thankless worker bees who tirelessly navigate the public’s distress in order to save lives, finally get a movie to call their own. But unfortunately, rather than the superhero depiction they deserve ...

Dead Man Down - Movie ReviewMarking the American film debut of Niels Arden Oplev, the master auteur behind the original The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Dead Man Down doesn’t pack quite the same guttural punch as the film that unleashed Lisbeth Salander’s angsty, tattooed spunk onto the ...

Oz the Great and Powerful - Movie ReviewDisney’s $200-million return to the wonderful world of Oz is neither great nor powerful.  It is interesting that Sam Raimi, director of The Evil Dead series and the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man franchise, returns to the quick camera angles and darkly-tinged moments ...
