Four weeks to go until we see the first of the three planned Star Wars “spinoff” films, Rogue One.  This film about the band of Rebels and spies that steal the plans to the Death Star, kicking into motion the original film, is the kind of spinoff I’m more eager to see from these than […]

Mississippi Grind (Blu-ray Review)

Movies about people with a compulsion tend to work for me. While it is frustrating to see the lead characters make decisions that you know are going to hurt them in some way, I am compelled to see how they deal with the fallout of their actions. Mississippi Grind is a fine film about two […]

Slow West (Blu-ray Review)

A western starring Michael Fassbender is good enough to get me excited. Slow West was in limited release this past spring. While it was not a huge hit, it did make a big splash with critics and served as something of a nice distraction in between the bigger budgeted westerns that arrive in theaters every […]

Head Out To The ‘Slow West’ This July

I actually was able to see this film at a film festival quite recently and was very fond of what I saw. Slow West is a quirky western certainly worth the time of those who enjoy Michael Fassbender or a bit of weirdness in a genre like this. The film is all about two unlikely allies traveling […]

Enjoy The Depths Of ‘Black Sea’ (Movie Review)

There was a time when I used to say I was not a fan of submarine movies.  I have since found that to be inaccurate, given how much I appreciate the ones considered to be the best and even some of the more average attempts.  I believe it to come down more to whether or […]

‘Exodus’ Commands Visual Grandeur, But Is Plagued By A Lack Of Emotion (Movie Review)

Exodus: Gods and Kings is an epic.  There is no way around that.  Regardless of my thoughts on the film as a whole, director Ridley Scott has made a film that is grand in scale, fully realized in its depiction of an ancient time, and littered with extras, sets, props, and obvious visual effects in […]

‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ Presents A Sweeping Story Of Crime, Corruption, And Motorcycles! (Movie Review)

I recently watched Blue Valentine for the first time.  This was the 2010 anti-romance/drama that first brought together writer/director Derek Cianfrance and star Ryan Gosling.  There was a lot of good to be found in that film, particularly from co-star Michelle Williams, but the film was not without its issues.  That said, Cianfrance left a […]

‘Killing Them Softly’ Is A Sly, Satirical, Mob Vehicle Driven By Pitt (Movie Review)

So here is a movie about wiseguys dealing with a mob heist, presidential politics, and the American financial crisis.  I have a feeling that some people are going to be upset with this film for not being what they expected.  Regardless, Killing Them Softly is a sly, dark comedy-drama, with Brad Pitt in a wonderfully […]

Take a Wild Journey Into ‘Animal Kingdom’

Animal Kingdom is an Aussie crime thriller that benefits from fantastic direction as well as marvelous and restrained acting from everyone involved.  This is a film that is thrilling, but doesn’t rely on slick editing, instead placing emphasis on sequences built around tension, focus and concentration.  The scope of the film isn’t large, but even […]
