All is Lost - Movie Review

Why do we try to live? What incredible force in the human spirit drives us to keep fighting when death’s rap is sounding our time to go? Since the beginning of time, theologians and philosophers have been tackling these age-old questions which are at ...

Carrie - Movie ReviewDirected by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Carrie is yet another reshaping of Stephen King’s novel that, rather quickly, bites the dust.  Hollywood will never learn to leave the past alone; I acknowledge that.  Unfortunately, there’s simply ...

Don Jon - Movie ReviewDon Jon, which represents Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial and screenwriting debut, is not a message movie, but it does have a message. The idea behind the film, which has been buzzing around in the actor’s head for years, is an earnest but highly entertaining ...

Blue JasmineI’ve never been impressed by Woody Allen. Personal life aside, I find most of his movies to be dramatically too dialogue heavy, and his situations presented to the characters to be morally objectionable nine chances out of ten. He’s a conflicting personality in that ...

A Single Shot - Movie ReviewDavid M. Rosenthal’s A Single Shot is a brutal and savage slice of crime cinema.  It’s as moody as the Mississippi river and as poetic.  While it offers nothing new to the genre, the thriller does make for some authentic backwoods film noir.. Starring Sam Rockwell ...

The Family - Movie ReviewAny questions of whether writer/director Luc Besson could get his Fifth Element groove back after a subsequent run of disappointments are answered in the first half hour of his black comedy called The Family. Centered around a former Mob family stashed ...

Jayne Manfield's Car - Movie ReviewJayne Mansfield’s Car, which represents Billy Bob Thornton’s long-awaited return to the director’s chair, is many things. The story, which he co-wrote with long-time writing partner Tom Epperson, is a meandering slice-of-life snapshot that is funny, sad, depressing ...

Closed Circuit - Movie ReviewDespite trailers and a title that elude to a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller set in one of the world’s most CCTV-saturated countries in the world, Closed Circuit oddly has very little to do with closed circuit cameras, or even secret surveillance for that matter. Then again, ...

Kick-Ass 2 - Movie ReviewWhat grammatical fun to be had were Kick-Ass 2 to actually kick some ass. Any number of cunning bon mots come to mind. However, the sad truth is that it doesn’t kick ass. In fact, it barely even thumps ass, or perhaps just gently moves ass out of the way. Now, ...
