It’s Love And War Between The ‘Allied’ (Movie Review)

It seems as if there is something to praise for making the kind of movie that suggests the phrase, “They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.” Allied seems to be gunning for that reaction.

Large-Scale Camp Erupts From ‘Pompeii’ (Movie Review)

Sometimes it is fine just taking what you can get.  A serviceable film is not necessarily a bad one if you had an overall good time.  I would be curious to revisit my thoughts on Pompeii a week from now or even a couple days from now and figure out what I would do differently […]

‘Lincoln’ Finds Courage In Its Craft And Focus

Lincoln is a film that has been a long time coming.  I remember hearing about early stories of director Steven Spielberg working on getting a movie made about Abraham Lincoln, with Tom Hanks being rumored for the role.  Then things became more official, as Liam Neeson was said to be attached.  The time passed, Neeson […]
