Mother! Movie Review

All film is subjective. It’s an obvious thing to say, but a film like Mother! should come attached with a reminder of this. Darren Aronosky’s latest directorial effort will likely be one of the most divisive films of the year. However, it is also one of 2017’s most daring and powerful films. Mother! is not […]

Fences Movie Review

Fences Movie review: Denzel Washington takes on mounting Fences from the stage to the screen and serves not only as its lead but as its director. In Denzel Washington’s third directorial feature, he tackles an emotional and significant American story adapted from August Wilson’s play by the same name. Washington reprises his former Broadway role […]

Loving Movie Review

In a world where superheroes and summer blockbusters dominate the movie world, it’s refreshing to see there’s still a place for quiet, thoughtful films. Directed by Jeff Nichols, Loving is an evocative counterpoint to the CGI spectacles that usually lack emotional punch. Nichols showed remarkable restraint, as did his cast. This film addresses a topic […]

True Story Movie Review

As I was grabbing my popcorn and hot dog at the concession stand before the film started, I started wondering what “True Story” would be about. I hadn’t heard any press or reviews about the film (apparently, that’s what I’m here for), so I was kind of filled with a good sense of anticipation. James […]

Belle Movie Review: Raised as a Lady

Period pictures are often a gamble.  Victorian era classism, wardrobe and semantics can be a lot of excess for anyone to swallow in today’s modern day and age.  Or perhaps we’ve just become lazy – something akin to the lack of appreciation one may have for the works of Shakespeare or Jane Austen.  But then, […]

The Vow Movie Review

The Vow Movie Review – Let’s call them ‘moments of impact’ – those moments that, when added together, make us who we are… for better or worse. There are moments of curiosity, of adventure, of our first pet, of change, of our favorite restaurant, of sadness… and of course, various forms of love. It’s within these […]

Red Tails Movie Review

Red Tails Movie Review – Set against the backdrop of the skies above 1944 Italy at the height of WWII, Red Tails opens up on four squad fighters in pursuit of a low-profile target.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Movie Review

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Movie Review – Directed by Steven Daldry Written by Eric Roth (screenplay), Jonathan Safran Foer (novel) Haley Joel Osment. Dakota Fanning. Macaulay Culkin. I’m not a big fan of child actors. They tend to overact. Their big doting eyes emoting what the directors have told them to do. It’s hard to […]
