Nightcrawler - Movie Review

Nightcrawler - Movie ReviewJake Gyllenhaal sheds 20 pounds and packs on the “creep” as a hapless drifter resigned to selling pilfered copper and chain link fencing in Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler, a film that skewers the bloodthirsty world of today’s “gotta have it now” media while simultaneously   ...

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) - Movie Review

Birdman - Movie ReviewMichael Keaton is Birdman. The actor who, in my opinion, played the best cinematic version of Batman turns the role on its head (or is that on its wings??!) in Birdman, the latest art house flick from writer-director Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams, Babel).  Michael Keaton’s ...

Snowpiercer - Blu-ray Review

John Wick - Movie Review

John Wick - Movie ReviewKeanu Reeves turns 50 this year.  With age comes wisdom, I’m told.  Perhaps that is why his portrayal as the super lethal John Wick, a former hitman fresh out of retirement, is such a crowd-pleasing good time.  Wait?  What did I just type?  A familiar story that  ...

It was 1970  ...

Mr. Peabody and Sherman - Blu-ray Review

Mr. Peabody and Sherman - Movie ReviewHow’s this for reaching into the cob-webbed bag of arcane source material and pulling out a shiny gem of a TV-to-movie adaptation?

Fury - Movie Review

Fury - Movie ReviewMachismo gets a proper dusting in writer/director David Ayer’s Fury.  This WWII tale of American soldiers at odds with themselves and the Germans around them is as grizzly and as violent as the war genre gets.  While it might not be an entirely true tale, a revisionist’s view  ...
