Movie Review: The Grey

Movie Review: The Grey

January is usually known as an arid wasteland for new film releases. Studios dump all the films that weren’t good enough for awards consideration, and the results are not pretty. My expectations for The Grey were tempered accordingly. I expected a campy creature-feature, nothing more. What I got instead was a complex, touching and...

Movie Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Movie Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

I suspect this film will be quite polarizing for audiences, but not for the reasons you may think. Though Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close takes place in the days, weeks and months following 9/11, it is essentially devoid of controversy or political overtones. The tragedy serves as a catalyst for the story of one...

Movie Review: Carnage

Movie Review: Carnage

Remember back in the day when MTV’s The Real World was all the rage? I waited every week with bated breath to see what shenanigans would occur when people “stopped being polite and started getting real.” That tagline is a pretty good synopsis of Carnage, a biting drama directed by Roman Polanski. The film takes...

Movie Review: War Horse

Movie Review: War Horse

Upon watching a trailer for War Horse a few months ago, my first thought was, “I will never be able to see that movie.” I’ve heard that many grown men have been reduced to openly sobbing while watching the play (that used puppets, for God’s sakes). How on earth could I make it through...

Movie Review: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Movie Review: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Like a lot of people, I didn’t see any need for an Americanized version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The Swedish film was quite good, and it seemed as though actress Noomi Rapace had cornered the market on the character of Lisbeth Salander with her tough as nails portrayal of the troubled...

Movie Review: Young Adult

December 16, 2011
Movie Review: Young Adult

Larry David. Seinfeld. Ben Stiller’s Greenberg. The entire cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Billy Bob Thornton’s Bad Santa.  They are all unlikable misanthropes, but now they’re getting some stiff competition from Mavis (Charlize Theron), a bitchy beauty skating by on her sunny good looks when she is rotten to the core on...

Movie Review: My Week With Marilyn

Movie Review: My Week With Marilyn

I can hardly recall a movie that is so heavily reliant on one actor’s performance, but My Week With Marilyn is absolutely at the mercy of Michelle Williams’ depiction of Marilyn Monroe. As her performance goes, so goes the movie. Fortunately,she hits it out of the park as the troubled iconic starlet. There’s really...

Movie Review: All God’s Creatures

The new indie film release All God’s Creatures tells the story of fresh-scrubbed boy next-door Jon (Josh Folan), a barista by day and unconscionable serial killer by night. Jon prowls the streets of New York searching for women to slay after he leaves the coffee shop at night, and has little trouble doing so...

Movie Review: Martha Marcy May Marlene

Movie Review: Martha Marcy May Marlene

Director Sean Durkin makes an impressive feature film debut with the haunting story of a traumatized ex-cult member who descends into madness when she tries to return to normal life. Watching the film feels like being kicked in the gut, because Martha’s story is so harrowing to watch, and Durkin’s screenplay transgresses traditional storytelling....

Movie Review: ‘Anonymous’

November 4, 2011
Movie Review: ‘Anonymous’

Roland Emmerich tackles the contentious issue of who really penned the works of William Shakespeare in Anonymous, a sudsy bodice-ripping soap opera set during Elizabethan era London. The story embraces the Oxford theory of Shakespeare authorship; that the Earl of Oxford actually wrote the works we celebrate.  William Shakespeare was but a dim-witted actor who...
