Movie Review: Book Club (2018)

They say that reading is fundamental, but the romantic goings-on in the mature rom-com Book Club should be more of a page-turner especially when it involves some of Hollywood’s all-time seasoned and decorated actresses. In a way it is quite refreshing (and rare) to encounter an unconventional romantic comedy catering to senior citizens as the…

Movie Review: Passengers (2016)

Passengers, the newest Sony Pictures (Village Roadshow) release, directed by Morten Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”), is a visually stunning outer space adventure with a very good cast (Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, Andy Garcia and Laurence Fishburne) that fails to lift off due to an earth-bound, cliché-ridden script. That last item can be blamed…

Movie Review: Ghostbusters (2016)

While watching the newest remake/reboot, this time of the classic 1984 comedy, “Ghostbusters,” I could not help but think that the lead stars of the first film (including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Annie Potts, Sigourney Weaver and Ernie Hudson), who all make cameo appearances, could have been put to better use. Each plays a different…

Movie Trailer: Ghostbusters (2016)

It’s taken 30 years for the ghosts in Manhattan to regroup enough to be a concern so large that some had to call for the Ghostbusters again. Venkman, Spengler and Stantz have long since retired (although I’m sure they’ll make a surprise visit) so in this updated Ghostbusters, four women have accepted the call to…

Movie Review: For Greater Glory (2012)

As a film critic who has a belief (or faith) in a being greater than myself (I know, I’ve just alienated about 50 percent of the readers), it’s hard not to notice Hollywood’s prevailent tendency to belittle and impugn Christianity. However, with the advent of “Joyful Noise” in January and now For Greater Glory I’m…

Movie Review: 5 Days of War (2011)

Similar to what Paul Greengrass accomplished with 2010’s Green Zone, 5 Days of War represents a merger of fact and fiction; weaving facets of the 2008 Russo-Georgian war into a predominantly fictional story about journalists caught in the crossfire. Finnish director Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger) took the director’s chair here, and attempted to…

Movie Review: The Pink Panther 2 (2009)

Remember when Steve Martin was a comic genius? No? Me either, although technically I still categorize him as one. His last major foray onto the big screen was The Pink Panther in 2006 (last year’s cameo in Baby Mama doesn’t count) and before that it was in the ever forgettable Cheaper by the Dozen 2….
