Macbeth (Blu-ray Review)

There have been more than ten film adaptations of Macbeth and all sorts of media that has taken on the story (or parts of it) in a new way. This version from director Justin Kurzel has a lot of good things, but other factors that take away from a film I really wanted to like. […]

Tom Hardy Makes A ‘Legend’ For Himself (Movie Review)

I strolled into Monday night’s press screening of the British crime thriller Legend armed with only two bits of information, Tom Hardy was the leading man and there was two of him.  I honestly knew nothing more than that having never even checked out the film’s trailer nor researched it beforehand like I usually do.

The Zero Theorem (Blu-ray Review)

Terry Gilliam returned to his realm of unique science fiction last year (or 2013 for some) with The Zero Theorem.  Many want to believe this is the third part in some sort of trilogy that include Gilliam’s earlier works of Brazil and 12 Monkeys.  12 Monkeys, by the way, is one of my most cherished […]

Stonehearst Asylum (Blu-ray Review)

Call me crazy (no pun intended), but every time I look at the title of this film, its poster art and the fact that it stars Ben Kingsley, I just get Shutter Island on the brain.  Is that fair to typecast this film instantly like that?  I don’t think it is, but I can’t help the […]

To succeed, they’ll need to survive assassins, terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the super weapon. I really enjoyed the first Red […]

‘The Fifth Estate’ Has Plenty of Leaks (Movie Review)

It is almost funny how long I put off actually writing a review for The Fifth Estate, the Bill Condon-directed film, which adapts two different books that focus on the news-leaking website WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.  The delay is not because I had a lot to consider, after seeing the film.  It is […]

‘Red 2’: Those Wacky Elderly Are At It Again (Movie Review)

A few years ago audiences were treated to RED, a film based off a not-very-well-known comic, which centered on the idea of a retired CIA agent getting back into action.  While the film was nothing like its comic counterpart, it got by on its playful sense of humor, fun cast, and the fact that it […]

Melodramatic ‘War Horse’ Is Beautiful And Stirring All The Same

It’s easy to write off sentiment.  Having a sweet-natured sensibility is apparently a negative for films that wear their hearts on their sleeves these days.  I don’t feel this way when the film is both effective and presents more than just these qualities.  Before seeing Spielberg’s beautifully made War Horse, I had recently seen The […]
