Clouds of Sils Maria Movie Review

Veteran actress Juliette Binoche stars alongside two of Hollywood’s biggest young female actresses, Kristen Stewart and Chloe Grace Moretz in a theatrical drama that was 35 minutes too long. Binoche’s character Maria Enders is a 40-something actress at the peak of her international career in Switzerland. She’s been asked to perform in a revival of […]

The Gunman Movie Review

Loosely adapted from a Jean-Patrick Manchette novel, The Gunman is an action-thriller that bores more than it excites.

Insurgent Movie Review

Insurgent, the second episode of a trilogy now called The Divergent Series, picks up right where they left off. Tris Prior, the emotionally driven heroine played by Shailene Woodley, gets rural with her brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort), her brooding love interest and fellow divergent Four (Theo James) and ex-Dauntless member Peter (Miles Teller) in the […]

Focus : Movie Review

From the famous writer/director duo of “Bad Santa”, “I Love You Phillip Morris” and “Crazy, Stupid Love”, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa make a somewhat disappointing caper feature that follows just about every typical con-artist outline. Nicky (Will Smith) is a suave con-man, channeling a classic Cary Grant, as he works with a team of […]

Hot Tub Time Machine 2: Movie Review

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is rightfully branded with an R-rating for an excess of crude sexual content, language, graphic nudity (male and female), drug use, violence and space-age masturbation devices. It’s also dripping with pop-culture references, penis jokes, misogyny and gay-panic. Still reading? Well, if you’re the sort of person who would purchase a […]

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Review

Well-choreographed sex, sultry tunes, beautiful actors and horrible writing are the important ingredients required for a successful soft-core porn, or in this case the bland film adaptation of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. Director Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and screenwriter Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks) sanitize the erotic cringe-worthy book with an elegant tone […]

Seventh Son Movie Review

Seventh Son Movie Review Seventh Son is an over-designed, patchwork fantasy epic that clouds Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges’ Academy Award winning craft with under-conceived plot lines and CGI noise. Inspired by the novel, “A Spook’s Apprentice,” this story follows the journey of young Tom Ward (Ben Barnes, The Chronicles of Narnia), a seventh son […]

Black or White Movie Review

Black or White Movie Review Black or White isn’t a question. It’s a declaration that whether you’re black or white, if you’re not meeting the standard criteria to be a decent human being — you’ll be judged just the same. Instead of focusing on the discrimination that black people currently experience, and laying out a […]
