The Birth Of A Nation (Blu-ray Review)

The Birth of a Nation came and went last year. Following its breakout at the Sundance Film Festival, the proceeding months were not kind to writer/director/producer/star Nate Parker, based on a muddy history that was brought back into the news. Still, there is a righteous part of me that sees a film recounting a historical […]

‘Nocturnal Animals’ Show Its Stylish Teeth (Movie Review)

Writer/director/fashion designer Tom Ford has certainly proven he knows how to dress up a scene and his characters. Nocturnal Animals presents multiple scenarios, be it characters at home or in the middle of something out of a Cormac McCarthy novel, which feel lovingly crafted for one to observe every detail, as if reading an intense description from […]

Parker’s ‘Birth Of A Nation’ Strikes Back At History (Movie Review)

The other part concerns my role […]

Review: THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.

There’s a chase sequence towards the end of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. which basically has the two leads simply driving up a hill. Not a whole lot actually happens, but it has tremendous energy, accompanied by a fantastic score by Daniel Pemberton. Which is the best way to describe the film as a whole. The story is fairly […]

In 2002, audiences were able to see what came of a failed film that would have starred Johnny Depp.  This film was Lost in La Mancha, a documentary that chronicled the attempt by director Terry Gilliam to make a film about Don Quixote, only to be undone by production and budget problems, forcing the film […]

Johnny Depp’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ Show (Movie Review)

When I first learned that Disney was bringing back The Lone Ranger to the big screen I have to admit, I got rather excited.  Despite not being a huge fan of Westerns, I have fond childhood memories of the masked fighter of injustice and his white stallion, Silver.  Hi-ho Silver!  Away!  However, I had to […]

Ah, the year of two Snow White  films, the other being Snow White and The Huntsman, this one being an actual light hearted attempt at the material.

True To Life, ‘J. Edgar’ Can Be Feared, Admired, Reviled, And Revered

Biographies tend to run hot and cold for me.  Sometimes, like in the case of Gus Van Sant’s Milk, from back in 2008 (which screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, the screenwriter for J. Edgar, won an Oscar for), I can really get into the film, admire all the performances, the ways in which the film presents […]
