Movie Review: Beasts of the Southern Wild

Movie Review: Beasts of the Southern Wild

There’s no question that Beasts of the Southern Wild is one of the most beguiling and original movies you will see this year, if not this decade. The film cannot be pigeonholed into any particular genre; it’s whimsical and dreamy at times, but devastatingly sad in others. Like Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life, there...

Movie Review: Katy Perry: Part of Me

Movie Review: Katy Perry: Part of Me

Since I’m the mom of seven and nine-year old girls, I have been subjected to more Katy Perry music than anyone deserves over an entire lifetime. I tolerate her because my girls have only recently discovered pop music, and they love her. Several months ago I promised them (begrudgingly) that I would take them...

Movie Review: Your Sister’s Sister

With indie films, you never know exactly what you are going to get. Every once in a while you get a nice surprise. Thus is the case with Your Sister’s Sister, written and directed by Lynn Shelton (Humpday). The always-charming Mark Duplass plays Jack, who is struggling with his grief one year after the...

Movie Review: Magic Mike

Movie Review: Magic Mike

When I first saw the trailer for Magic Mike, I thought it looks tremendously bad, as in Showgirls bad, and I immediately dismissed it. However, when I found out that Steven Soderbergh was directing, I was really scratching my head. Why would this well-respected director waste his time with rubbish? Turns out that Magic Mike is a movie that...

Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

June 22, 2012
Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

For everyone who has become utterly disgusted with what vampires have been reduced to at the modern cinema, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter serves as a welcome reprieve from all that nonsense. These are not the sparkly, love-struck vampires we have been subjected to as of late (I’m talking about you, Cullen clan).  They aren’t...

Movie Review: Seeking Justice

Movie Review: Seeking Justice

There’s a surprising amount of star power behind the newly released straight –to-DVD thriller Seeking Justice (the film had a very small limited release). Nicolas Cage, Guy Pearce, January Jones, Jennifer Carpenter, Harold Perrineau  and Xander Berkely star in a story that slowly unravels a mystery concerning vigilantism run amok in modern day New...

Movie Review: Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding

June 12, 2012
Movie Review: Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding

Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding is a fairly rote piece of fluff, but exemplary performances by the talented cast make the film worth a watch.  Catherine Keener stars as Diane, an icy and uptight lawyer who has just found out her husband wants a divorce. This event serves as the impetus for her to visit...

Movie Review: Sound of My Voice

Movie Review: Sound of My Voice

One of the most fascinating films I saw at SXSW 2011 was an indie film called Sound of My Voice.  The premise is modest-an aspiring pair of filmmakers decide they want to infiltrate a cult they have learned about, presumably to expose the leader as being full of crap. She claims to be from...

Movie Review: Entrance

May 17, 2012
Movie Review: Entrance

Although Entrance is being marketed as a horror film, it is actually a hybrid of character study and horror. I’m not going to lie; the first 2/3 of the movie is an exceptionally sluggish slow burn. I actually picked up the screening notes twice and reread them, because I thought I had been sent...
