Gregg’s Triumphant Top 10 Tantalizing 2012 Films

Earlier this month I released my worst films of 2012.  That was probably one of the easiest lists I ever put together.   The good ones from the year the Mayan calendar ended were a little more difficult to assemble.  It was another year of superheroes at the box office which brought in super dividends for […]

‘Lawless’ Has Bootleggers, Bloodshed, And The Beef

Lawless is an enjoyable, Prohibition-era drama with plenty of really strong violent bits.  It has a very good ensemble cast to work with, a director who knows how to make things look good, and plenty of other ingredients to make a solid picture.  I think the film’s biggest problem is that it has the feel […]

‘Prometheus’ Brings Fire For All To Question

It must be difficult to approach a film like this from the perspective of a filmmaker who has done previous, similar work that is now considered a classic.  It must also be difficult for someone to go in and see a film like this, knowing what one knows about said classic, the filmmaker, and the […]
