The D Train - Movie ReviewNothing says pathetic loser quite like giving one’s self a cool nickname and hoping it sticks among friends. In what becomes somewhat of a running joke in The D Train, that’s exactly what Dan Landsman (Jack Black) does in his desperate attempts to overcome his lonely  ...

Hot Pursuit - Movie ReviewReese Witherspoon goes a mile-a-minute with a Texan drawl in an unfunny Hot Pursuit as Officer Cooper. Forgetting what made previous characters like Elle Woods and Tracy Flick so memorable, Witherspoon simply coasts here as the only female cop on the San Antonio  ...

The Age of Adaline - Movie ReviewThere’s an interesting premise buried somewhere beneath the rubble of the ramshackle story in The Age of Adaline, a film that tries very hard to be a powerful love story but is, instead, just a ridiculously contrived message film about, well, let’s see… about why it’s valuable to  ...

True Story - Movie ReviewAs its name suggests, True Story is based on the real-life story about how disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) became involved with accused killer Christian Longo (James Franco) who murdered his entire family back in 2003.

Kill Me Three Times - Movie ReviewThe off-kilter hit man.  The three lines of plot to follow.  The dark comedy.  Kill Me Three Times is what happens when a gritty film noir tours Australia with Simon Pegg as its guide.  Reminiscent of Blood Simple, director Kriv Stenders offers this ode of murder most   ...

Woman in Gold - Movie ReviewOne of the year’s oddest Hollywood pairings pits Ryan Reynolds opposite Helen Mirren in Woman in Gold, the remarkable true story of a woman’s journey to rescue her heritage and obtain justice for her family’s mistreatment in the years leading up to World War II.   ...

Home - Movie ReviewDreamworks Animation’s next salvo in its ongoing battle against Pixar for animated feature supremacy is Home, a ridiculously mixed up little tale with all the charm of a cactus and warmth of an iceberg. Following the failure of last year’s Penguins of Madagascar, the ...

The Gunman - Movie ReviewSuddenly, from the enveloping shroud of irrelevance busts Sean Penn onto the scene with what seems to be the latest path for any Hollywood leading man to rediscovered glory: an ass-whoopin’, guns-a-blazin’, globe-hoppin’ action flick a la Kevin Costner in 3 Days to Kill or ...

Zombeavers - Movie ReviewTurn up the schlock, man. The B-movie genre gets elevated with this bucktoothed bloodletting bonanza. Having just seen it, I am here to testify that Zombeavers, a film that is as cracked as its title, is one helluva “dam” time at the movies.  Mixing biohazard material with nature-dwelling ...
