‘The Shape of Water’ Is A Fantastical Masterwork (Movie Review)

Thinking about writer/director Guillermo del Toro’s work, it easy to see how much effort he puts into every aspect of his films. Del Toro’s best movies are ones that feel like a symphony of ideas all brought together brilliantly by his love for fantasy and horror. The Shape of Water is the latest example. This […]

‘Paddington’ Is The Cinematic Equivalent Of A Warm Hug (Movie Review)

I am not sure whether or not I should be surprised by how much I enjoyed Paddington, the film adaptation of the popular children’s literature character created by Michael Bond, but I know without a doubt that I was absolutely charmed by it.  Co-writer/director Paul King, best known for his work on the British comedy […]

Godzilla (Blu-ray Review)

It is great to see a movie like this treated with a level of respect.  While Godzilla can be boiled down to a giant monster causing a rampage in a city, the fact that the film (as well as its marketing) had a level of restraint in how to actually depict the sort of chaos […]

‘ALL IS BRIGHT’ With Rudd And Giamatti This November On Blu-ray

I’m sure it has to do with the actors, but I am quite intrigued by this movie.  As a fan of movies like Bad Santa or even The Ice Harvest, something about a dark, off-beat comedy, set during the holiday season tends to bring a smile to my face.  It doesn’t hurt that the teaming […]

There a few main thoughts I have in regards to the latest…scratch that, this year’s Woody Allen film, Blue Jasmine.  First off, Cate Blanchett is one of the actresses that immediately come to mind when I consider who are among the best working today.  This film contains one of her best performances.  Secondly, here is […]

‘Submarine’ Takes A Dive Into The Depths Of Quirky British Comedy

I find it interesting that I have gotten to see both Beginners and Submarine within the span of the same week.  Both films are engaging, romantic, comedic dramas, which use quirky sensibilities that manage to both give the film a unique voice and feel as though it is working hard to be different.  Keeping both […]
