Movie Review: Life of Pi

It’ll be interesting to see how audiences who haven’t read Life of Pi, Yann Martel’s 2001 novel respond to director Ang Lee’s vision of the colorful tale. Piscine Molitor “Pi” Patel is a twice-strangely-monikered, religiously insatiable 16-year-old Indian boy immigrating by freighter from Pondicherry to Canada with his parents, brother and the animal inhabitants of their...

Movie Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

I’m not even going to pretend that this is a review for anyone other than true fans of all the Twilight books and all the Twilight films.  There won’t be a bunch of plot exposition or the like, so if you’re looking for that kind of review, these are not the droids you are...

Movie Review: Lincoln

At numerous points in the watching of Lincoln, Steven Spielburg’s new ode to America and Americana, I was reminded of Tableau Vivant, a kind of staged group charades that was a popular entertainment of the 19th century. In Tableau Vivant, costumed enactors wordlessly enact a story, freezing in a series of familiar scenes or attitudes. And so...

Movie Review: Anna Karenina

This is the third adaptation of a novel Joe Wright has made with Keira Knightley and the second of a beloved classic. The problem is that most of the belovees have actually read Pride and Prejudice, and I think that many who approach Anna Karenina get about twenty or so pages into it before...

Movie Review: Skyfall

I recently introduced my girlfriend to the James Bond franchise — we started off strong with Goldfinger then moved on to Dr. No, with From Russia with Love and Thunderball on deck. Then maybe on to On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, one of my favorites, Live and Let Die, then The Spy Who Loved...

Pilot Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger safely landed his plane on the Hudson River after a catastrophic mid-air collision with a flock of geese that rendered the plane inoperable. The incident was quickly dubbed “Miracle on the Hudson” by the press,...

Cost of Making a Movie vs. a TV Series

The landscape of television is changing. Brilliant writers and talented new actors are being grouped with visionaries and technology. What that creates is new and ever-improving entertainment that, once upon a time, you could only find on the big screen. That’s no longer the case. In fact, there was a time when big name...

Movie Review: Seven Psychopaths

If it weren’t for the fact that writer/director Martin McDonagh is every bit as handsome as his favorite leading man, you’d think he was going down the Woody Allen vanity route, casting Colin Farrell as his obvious surrogate—a screenwriter named Marty M—in his second feature film, Seven Psychopaths. Fellow Irishman Farrell was also the star...

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...

Movie Review: The Oranges

I should be a millionaire right now. Thirty-five minutes into this purported suburban romantic comedy, I muttered to my companion, “I’ll bet you a million dollars this movie was written by a couple of middle aged guys.” Fifty-five long minutes later the movie was finally over and there were the writer credits: Ian Helfer...

Movie Review: Looper

Looper offers stylish escapism for the thinking man. A twist-laden plot rife with time-travel and sci-fi elements teases the intellect, and demands a second viewing to put all the pieces together. Even if you think you have the plot figured out, you most likely don’t. It would be a shame to ruin the fun...

Movie Review: The Master

I’ve been obsessed with cults ever since I fled to my car during a three-day Landmark Forum course and had twelve messages from them waiting on my answering machine by the time I got home. I read everything I could about cults and found that the weekend course I had just attended was started by a...

Movie Review: Munger Road

When I see the words “based on true events” my interest is immediately piqued. Deep down, I know that term is used very, very loosely, but for some reason it amps up the fear factor on almost any horror film I watch. I can be watching the most mundane, run of the mill movie,...

Movie Review: Celeste and Jesse Forever

You’d think that a movie starring funny girl next door Rashida Jones (Parks and Rec) and SNL alum Andy Samberg will be a raucous R-rated romp full of the gross out gags and antics we’ve come to expect from the genre. Surprise, you’re wrong. Celeste and Jesse Forever takes a twist on the romantic comedy, defiantly rejecting the...
