The Big Sick (SXSW Review)

The Big Sick is an uproariously funny comedy that had to tread a very difficult line since a major portion of the film takes place in a hospital and has one of the major characters in a coma. A film written by and starring Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”), directed by Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American […]

The Full Modern Malick Effect Continues In ‘Song To Song’ (Movie Review)

It can be mean, alienating and condescending to tell something they don’t “get” a movie. Terrence Malick, a filmmaker who has gone from reclusive and rarely making films to prolific, yet still reclusive as a person, seems to be making a conscious effort to challenge the notion of understanding cinema. His recent output has maintained […]

Darkness, Camera, Action! ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (Movie Review)

‘Batman v Superman’ Is Gorgeous And Grim, With Little Room For Fun (Movie Review)

At its very best, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts sequences ripped straight out of an Alex Ross comic book. When at its worst, this is a cold, muscled-up film that has the feel of something written by Frank Miller, minus the irony. There is far too much on display for me to call […]

BONNIE & CLYDE Mini-Series Comes To Blu-ray This January!

Making waves right now is the retelling of the classic Bonnie & Clyde story airing simultaneously on the History Channel, Lifetime and A&E.  While you can say what you want about remakes and the like, I think the modern era of television is a good avenue in exploring a reimagination to set yourself apart from […]

Fed up with crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (Clooney) busts loose…except that he’s still shackled to two misfits from his chain gang: bad tempered Pete (Turturro) and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelsen).  With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain, the three embark on […]

The Incredibles (Blu-ray Review)

Quite possibly my favorite Pixar movie to date, The Incredibles is finally on Blu-ray! After making The Iron Giant, which was a critical but not commercial success, Brad Bird joined Pixar to make their first movie with humans as the lead characters. Initially, Disney wanted to make it a live action movie but that idea […]
