Cymbeline, Shakespeare on Motorcycles (Movie Review)

William Shakespeare’s plays have been made into movies a great many times since film was invented. There have been classic films such as Hamlet with Mel Gibson, and there have been modernized stories such as the 1996 film Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo DiCaprio. Both types have had mixed reviews over the years. With the […]

Old-School Cinderella Features Modern Sensibilities

Old-School Cinderella Features Modern Sensibilities

For those who feared Cinderella is just another Disney princess movie (albeit a live one) and weak girlie-girl story, it thankfully is not. The classic fairy tale has some old-fashioned Disney and new-fashioned CGI magic, but director Kenneth Branagh and writer Chris Weitz have managed to craft an old-school Cinderella story that features modern sensibilities […]

Chappie (Movie Review)

Chappie (Movie Review)

In the third original picture by Director Neil Blomkamp, Chappie is a story about the government’s own system and technology pairing with the common man to rebel against corruption and the government’s dastardly deeds.

Mark Wahlberg is Jim Bennett in this remake of the 1974 James Caan film The Gambler and as directed by Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) this version leaves the audience dumbfounded, depressed and not a little confused.

Into the Woods: Disney Does Broadway Beautifully (Review and Trailer)

Into the Woods: Disney Does Broadway Beautifully (Review and Trailer)

Having never seen any stage version of this Stephen Sondheim musical it is much easier to take this big screen adaptation of Into the Woods at face value and while Disney does do Broadway beautifully, the film, for all its hype and fan excitement, does not overwhelm or overly impress. Certainly the movie looks gorgeous, […]

Unbroken: Angelina Jolie Tribute to Olympic POW (Review and Trailer)

Unbroken: Angelina Jolie Tribute to Olympic POW (Review and Trailer)

The Angelina Jolie tribute to an Olympic WWII POW in her film Unbroken, can either be seen as a patriotic salute to one man’s incredible spirit and refusal to give in under the most extreme of pressures. Or it could be an overlong attempt to ride the long wave of popularity caused by Laura Hillenbrand’s […]

Foxcatcher: Steve Carell Disturbs In Olympic Murder Story (Review/Trailer)

Boasting a tagline of “Based on a shocking true story” Foxcatcher features comic actor Steve Carell who disturbs as the millionaire benefactor of two Olympic gold medalist brothers who turns his patronage into a murder story. Audiences do not need to be aware of the background of the senseless and shocking death of Dave Schultz […]

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Child Friendly (Review/Trailer)

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Child Friendly (Review/Trailer)

Perhaps the saddest thing about Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, with its child friendly atmosphere and plot, is seeing the late Robin Williams reprise his role as President Teddy Roosevelt. This last trip to the world of a magical tablet that brings exhibits to life at night feels tired and forced. Even […]

‘Annie’ Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz Odd Choices in Remake (Review/Trailer)

The original Annie came out in 1982 and starred Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks and comic legend Carol Burnett as Mrs. Hannigan, this remake has made a couple of odd choices in their replacements where Jamie Foxx is in the Warbucks role, as Will Stacks and Cameron Diaz is in the Burnett role. Granted, Finney […]
