Locke - Movie ReviewWhen Ivan Locke – played by Tom Hardy – leaves work for the evening, he has a job he’s insanely good at, a welcoming home, and a happy family that is eagerly awaiting his arrival. By the time he gets to his destination, he has nothing. No one is killed. No one is kidnapped  ...

The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay - Part 1 - Movie ReviewKatniss Everdeen will indeed go down as one of the most influential teenage literary characters of our time. Safe to say that Harry Potter still tops that list. A disclaimer first, as to say that I have not to this point, read any of Suzanne Collin’s Hunger Games trilogy of novels,   ...

The Sublime and Beautiful - Movie ReviewRedefining the slow burn, Los Angeles-filmmaker Blake Robbins takes audiences on a heart-wrenching journey through loss and grief as one family struggles after the death of their three children and the results are stunningly authentic. Robbins - who directs, produces ...

Rosewater - Movie ReviewJon Stewart, the darling of late night political satire, dips his toes into the world of filmmaking with his brilliant screenwriting and directorial debut of Rosewater, a story he adapts from journalist Maziar Bahari’s memoir titled Then They Came for Me. Many may recall the ...

Dumb and Dunmber To - Movie ReviewIt will more than likely go down as the crown prince of sequels that should have never been made.

Calvary - Movie ReviewWriter/director John Michael McDonagh returns with a vengeance in Calvary, a dark comedy that expertly juggles the sacred with the profane.  The film takes its name from the hill where Jesus was crucified and, yes, it deals with sacrifice as one priest knowingly faces life  ...

Big Hero 6 - Movie ReviewAs the celebrated love-child of the newly consummated coupling by Disney and Marvel studios, Big Hero 6 is, as expected, an action-packed superhero movie.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - Movie ReviewPeople of a certain age may recall having read Judith Viorst’s award-winning 1972 children’s book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. And if you are one of those acquainted with its humorous anecdotes, you are probably wondering how the  ...

Dracula Untold - Movie ReviewAnd now the 15th century “Dark Knight” gets his very own reboot.   Unfortunately, Dracula Untold should have remained exactly that.  This fangless reimagining of Vlad the Impaler’s origins is a certifiable bore, offering only fun sized Snickers for those Halloween  ...

The Equalizer - Movie ReviewIf you missed the original The Equalizer television series upon which Denzel Washington’s latest actioner is based (and named), you’re not alone. The show, which ran on CBS for just a few short years back in the ‘80s, is mostly long forgotten and hasn’t even sparked a ...
