Up Close & Personal: Captain Marvel Character Posters!
Marvel Studios has released a series of character posters for Captain Marvel – in theaters March 8th. Check them out beloew.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald – Not The Empire Strikes Back of the Wizarding World!
The second chapter in the Fantastic Beasts Quintology is fun – mostly because of the beasts and the relationships. It could have done without so much Grindelwald (one of Johnny Depp’s least distinguished efforts).
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Is a Kinetic Slog!
Guy Ritchie made his bones (so to speak) on hard-edged crime films with wicked humor and striking visuals. Then he went big budget with Sherlock Holmes and provided a very different (but surprisingly canonical) consulting detective. Next up was the criminally underrated The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – the best non-Bond Bond flick since the first […]
A Question of Identity Trailer: HBO’s The Young Pope!
‘Who are you’ an off-screen voice asks the new Pope (played by Jude Law). ‘I’m a contradiction,’ comes the answer. It seems that the Vatican (and the world for that matter) have no idea what they’re in for. Check out the new teaser for HBO’s The Young Pope, premiering in 2017, after the break.
Spy: Bond… Melissa Bond!
Melissa McCarthy has shown she can play a character (Saint Vincent, everyone!), which is why Spy is so much fun. In Susan Cooper, CIA super analyst she’s found a character – and a potential franchise – that she can really sink her teeth into. Also, for a spoof to work it must also succeed in […]
DVD Review: Rise of the Guardians – 2012’s Best Animated Feature Comes to Home Video!
Rise of the Guardians was the best animated feature of 2012 – no matter what the Academy might have thought. It’s smart enough for older kids-at-heart and filled with lots of action and cool stuff to engage younger viewers. That it didn’t even get an Oscar® nomination is sad, but that won’t matter to most […]
Side Effects Is Typically Twisty Soderbergh!
If Steven Soderbergh has really left filmmaking for good, he is definitely going out on a high note. Side Effects is a twisty piece of fun that swerves from apparent satire – about our heavily medicated culture – to thriller without missing a beat or ever losing its psychological edge.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows – Ritchie’s Second Victorian Romp Darker But Still Fun!
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is almost as much fun as it predecessor but it may have been a mistake using Holmes’ greatest foe – Professor James Moriarty [The Napoleon of Crime] – so soon.
Contagion- It Might Just Be The Cure for Insomnia or An Inspiring Reason to Not Socialize With Other People
‘Contagion’ opens in theaters on September 8th. The tagline for Warner Brothers newest theater release ‘Contagion’ is “nothing spreads like fear” and this movie relies heavily on that truism as its plot line. The first half hour of this star-studded movie plays out like an extended version of commercials for every disinfectant product you can […]
MOVIE REVIEW: Sherlock Holmes – An Engaging Trifle That Mixes The Supernatural and Steampunk!
Let me be perfectly clear – although I’ve read the Holmes canon several time, and fifty or sixty [or so] of the multitudes of Holmes pastiches, I am not a Baker Street Irregular. Still, I would imagine that most Irregulars would find much to enjoy about Guy Ritchie’s take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s immortal […]
