Movie Review: 12 Years a Slave

Movie Review: 12 Years a Slave

Director Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame) isn’t exactly known for cranking out uplifting fare, and 12 Years a Slave is no exception. Despite its bleak subject matter, it’s a phenomenal film. He was the perfect director for bringing the disturbing subject matter to the screen. Slave is superbly directed and acted. It’s also very, very upsetting to watch. I’ve...

Movie Review: Elysium

August 9, 2013
Movie Review: Elysium

Elysium is director Neill Blomkamp’s follow up to District 9 (2009). Blomkamp showed immense promise when he extracted a politically savvy sci-fi thriller from a relatively modest $30 million budget. It was technically slick, and packed a punch with its political commentary about racism. Flash forward four years, and we’ve got more of the...

Movie Review: Trance

April 12, 2013
Movie Review: Trance

With Trance, Danny Boyle brings the audience a dark and brooding psychological thriller in which nobody and nothing is as it seems. The less said about the intricate plot, the better. A few indulgent words can easily topple the fragile house of cards that serves as plot in the movie. Simon (James McAvoy) works...

If you experience an overwhelming sense of déjà vu while watching Safe Haven, it may be because you already saw the movie back when it was called Sleeping With The Enemy (1991).

Movie Review: Sinister

Movie Review: Sinister

Let me begin this review with a quick public service announcement. If you intend to see Sinister, for God’s sake don’t watch the trailer. It will suck the scares right out of the movie. When I see a horror movie, I want to feel frightened. I want to hunker down in my seat, biting...
