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 […]

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a film not only packed with characters, sets, costumes, and all the things that tend to typify writer/director Wes Anderson’s style, it is also packed with story.  It is becoming more and more clear to me how much Anderson enjoys having films that are about stories being told to an […]

Crack the code with Dom Hemingway on Blu-ray July 22

Even knowing what this film is based on the trailer I have seen, my gut reaction continues to be, “What the hell is this?”  Jude Law playing a jerk and bringing along Withnail & I‘s Richard E. Grant for the ride seems like it could be a lot of darkly comedic fun, but who knows.  […]

Visit Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’

Wes Anderson is a creature of habit. He has developed a uniqueness that has such a look, feel and sound to his films that they have become a genre themselves.  You know you’ve really made it when Saturday Night Live makes a mockery of you and most recently, SNL took Wes Anderson on and produced […]

‘Side Effects’ May Include Twists, Turns, And Some Deliberate Pacing (Movie Review)

The tricky thing about discussing Steven Soderbergh’s latest and reportedly last directorial feature, Side Effects, is that the film is most effective if the viewer goes in knowing nothing about it.  The marketing campaign (or at least the initial trailers) can be commended for being fairly ambiguous in presenting what is actually going on in […]
