‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ – The Aliens Strike Back (Movie Review)

I have both nostalgic love and admiration for the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day. The film turned Will Smith into a superstar, provided Irwin Allen disaster movie-like thrills on a grand scale, and delivered a fun sci-fi alien invasion flick. It was also earnest, heartfelt and audacious. 20 years later we have Independence Day: Resurgence, which […]

‘Mortdecai’, A Shot In The Mustache (Movie Review)

At its best, Mortdecai is an adult-skewing drama that uses its big-name cast to its advantage, as everyone does their best to show how much fun they are having, while being moved along by the comic zip of director David Koepp’s direction.  This is not a sentence that I can apply to the whole movie, […]

The Grand Budapest Hotel (Blu-ray Review)

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 […]

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 […]

Jurassic Park 3D (Movie Review)

I was sitting with a pretty, young lady some 21 years ago,  waiting to watch Indecent Proposal, when a preview came on for Jurassic Park.  I can still see the raptor’s eye peering into the kitchen window just before it fogged from the dinosaurs breath.  My date grabbed my arm tight and said, “we are definitely coming […]

The Switch (Blu-ray Review)

I’d like to believe in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Lochness Monster.  What I have trouble believing, is that Jennifer Aniston can’t find a man in New York City who wants to have a baby with her.  That is the premise for The Switch, and it requires you to stretch your imagination and suspend […]
