‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Is A Breezy, Coach Class Ride (Movie Review)

In theory, it would seem like people should welcome another take on Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. A new adaptation means putting together a mix of veteran actors and rising stars in a presumably handsomely filmed production that focuses on the acting in a character-centric mystery. Director and star Kenneth Branagh accomplishes this […]

‘Dunkirk’ Spirals Upwards Into An Intense And Superb Experience (Movie Review)

In the time since seeing Dunkirk, writer/director Christopher Nolan’s tense World War II survival story, I’ve thought a lot about how essential the use of structure and time was to the film. Nolan played around with narrative structure in his early films such as Memento and Batman Begins. He used time as a primary narrative […]

‘Cinderella’ Is All Dressed Up And Ready To Go (Movie Review)

I was not sure what to expect from Disney’s new Cinderella. The track record has not been great for the recent crop of live-action remakes of classic Disney animated features. Alice in Wonderland was elaborate, but bland; Snow White and The Huntsman (not Disney) went the forgettable “dark and gritty” route; and last year’s Maleficent […]

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (Blu-ray Review)

I’ve always been a pretty solid fan of the Jack Ryan franchise.  The first one I saw was Clear And Present Danger, where some friends and I just randomly went to a movie on an afternoon and saw it.  It was like my first super adult type movie I think I saw in the theater […]

Bippity Boppity Boom: Live-Action CINDERELLA Teaser

I honestly forgot this was a thing, but director Kenneth Branagh continues to explore blockbuster filmmaking with a live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella”.  It will bring to life the timeless images from Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation, Disney hopes.  […]

‘Jack Ryan’: Plain Recruit (Movie Review)

Does the world need another Jack Ryan?  The character, created by writer Tom Clancy, has never quite taken off, despite their now being five films that feature him.  The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger are solid spy thrillers/procedurals, but are not 90s films that many seem to single out […]

Much Ado About Nothing (Blu-ray Review)

After showing the world what he could do with Henry V in 1989, Kenneth Branagh returned with another Shakespearean movie with Much Ado About Nothing, which was filled with a ton of talented people.  Some of these people like Denzel Washington, Emma Thompson, and Michael Keaton were perfectly cast while others such as Robert Sean […]

After a five hour road trip, we arrived in Los Angeles to start our “real” Oscars coverage.  The first event on our schedule was the Shorts! reception at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  Although we’ve attended several events at the Academy headquarters, it’s still quite a thrill to push past the hundreds […]
