Selma - Movie ReviewForget the recent misguided controversy surrounding President Lyndon B. Johnson’s not-so-flattering, fact-blurred portrayal in Selma, and instead, enjoy the film for its powerfully poignant story. Then again, expecting to “enjoy” a film like Selma is a bit of a misguided ...

The Interview - Movie Review ReviewCall me a fascist. Call me un-American. Call me what you will but The Interview is not a good comedy. I’m all for free speech but there are much better films to spend your money and your time on involving political assassination attempts. Try Woody Allen’s Bananas or  ...

A Most Violent Year - Movie ReviewFilmmaker J. C. Chandor has a tremendous talent for turning the most mundane topics into entertaining dramas. He brought the obscure complexities behind the 2008 stock market crash to captivating light in 2011’s Margin Call and turned the one-man, no-dialogue sailing disaster All is Lost, into one of  ...

Foxcatcher - Movie ReviewI must say, director Bennett Miller, for the few films he has directed (three feature length, one short, one documentary), is on a quite a roll, considering that his other two full length films, (Capote and Moneyball) have received Oscar nods.

Unbroken - Movie ReviewThings go from bad to worse for World War II airman Louis Zamperini in this reverential war drama from Angelina Jolie.

Into the Woods - Movie ReviewThat deafening rumble? It’s the collective groan of dismay coming from the legion of passionate Stephen Sondheim fans ill at ease with Hollywood getting its grubby hands on yet another of the beloved writer and composer’s most revered pieces. The playwright’s unique imagination  ...

Wild - Movie ReviewThere’s a wonderful scene in Jean-Marc Vallée’s Wild that, despite its unassuming throw-away appearance, defines the grace and simplicity of his filmmaking proficiency, while also beautifully illustrating the entangled complexity of one woman’s personal battle with life’s  ...

American Sniper - Movie ReviewWhere have you been, Mr. Eastwood? We missed you. Thought consigned to the dustbin of once relevant filmmakers, Clint Eastwood comes roaring back with American Sniper, the true story of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in American military history. ...

Inherent Vice - Movie ReviewYou know there’s going to be an issue with a movie, set on California’s west coast during the drugged-out ex-hippie year of 1970, when Benicio del Toro is playing the one and only straight man.  Playing for normal, you know, isn’t exactly his forte.  Maybe this wouldn’t be a problem ...

The Homesman - Movie ReviewWanna get devastated? And I mean heartbroken to the nth degree, completely unable to crawl to the fridge for another beer. If so, then Tommy Lee Jones has the movie for you this holiday season. The Homesman, based on Glendon Swarthout’s 1988 novel, is a harrowing ...
