Snitch - Movie ReviewI’m pretty sure no one saw this coming.  Pay little attention to the “inspired by a true story” opening suggestion.  The statement comes with its fair share of expected emotional bear traps for cynics and warm-fuzzy filmgoers.  Focus on the driving narrative instead  ...

A Good Day to Die Hard - Movie Review

O McClane, Mclane! Wherefore art thou John McClane? Lacking the tone, the mood, and the feel of the Die Hard pictures before it (including the inferior 4th entry), A Good Day to Die Hard massively disappoints...even with its R-rating.  Returning star, Bruce Willis, ...

Identity Thief - Movie ReviewHinting at something much bigger than its topical brand of shock humor is able to deliver, the title for Identity Thief seems poignant for today’s information-driven society where having one’s personal identity stolen is but a single careless mouse click ...

Side Effects - Movie ReviewSide Effects is supposed to be writer/director Steven Soderbergh’s goodbye to the cinema and filmmaking and while most are not convinced that he can successfully fade away we have to, at this point, take him at his word.  And what a head trip through style and ...

Promised Land - Movie ReviewIn Gus Van Sant’s Promised Land, screenwriters Matt Damon and John Krasinski present a well-rounded, yet emotionally-charged argument that attempts to build a compelling film around the controversial process of natural gas extraction known as hydraulic ...

Hitchcock posterWhat if someone good made a horror film? This is the question Hitchcock, directed by Sacha Gervasi, asks its audience. It is also the question the maestro himself poses to his wife and longtime business partner, Alma Reville, over many a cup of tea. Based on the ...

Lincoln - Movie ReviewWith Lincoln, Steven Spielberg does a complete 180, calling upon a different set of filmmaking skills than he’s accustomed to using. In a triumphant return to form, the War Horse director moves away from his typical outpouring of visual imagery and tells his ...
