Movie Review: Underworld: Blood Wars (2016)

Well, we’ve had “Blood Orchid” and “Blood Feuds” and “Blood Money.” We’ve also had “Blood Rain,” “Blood Brother,” “Blood Orgy” and even “Blood Diamond.” Isn’t it about time we had some good old-fashioned “Blood Wars”? As in Underworld: Blood Wars? Uh, then again, maybe it isn’t. During the prologue for this Anna Foerster directed effort…

Movie Review: Me Before You (2016)

Me Before You belongs to a much-maligned genre. It features young adults and is based on a novel aimed at that demographic (like “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Twilight”); its focus is a young woman’s experience of a complicated relationship with her fellow generic archetype (like “The Notebook” and “Dear John”); the relationship features…

Movie Review: Woman in Gold (2015)

Movie Review: Dracula Untold (2014)

As a screen icon, Dracula has been reinvented over and over again. And many more overs. He’s been everyone from Bela Lugosi to Judas Iscariot and fought veteran vampire killers that range from the brilliant Buffy to the middling Blade at his lamest. He’s drawn the acute attention of such filmmaking masters as Murnau and…

Movie Trailer: The Imitation Game (2014)

Based on the best-selling novel “Alan Turing: The Enigma” by Andrew Hodges comes The Imitation Game, a character study of Alan Turing, the English mathematician credited with deciphering the Enigma code used by Nazi Germany during WW II. There’s also a fair bit more to it, like the in-house drama within the Government Code and…

Movie Review: Ironclad (2011)

Paul Giamatti is a damn fine actor. Not so good, that he can produce diamonds from a pile of shit, though. As a matter of fact, with his silly haircut (yes, I know it was fitting for the time period) and his lack of a consistent English accent, he adds to the shitty mess that…
