Movie Review: Dunkirk (2017)

In 1940, more than 300,000 Allied soldiers were trapped and surrounded by German forces in Dunkirk, France. It was a devastating blow and a key victory in the Battle of France; Hitler would not be stopped for five more years. However, the evacuation and rescue of the troops by British destroyers and other smaller vessels,…

Movie Review: Free Fire (2016)

Who doesn’t want a movie to start and end and basically be one big bang? More conflict (and guns) brings better drama, right? In the case of Free Fire, that axiom does not, regrettably, hold true. The film is about an arms deal that goes terribly wrong — and because it goes so very wrong,…

Movie Review: Anthropoid (2016)

During World War II, many European countries occupied by Nazi Germany had resistance movements that fought against the invaders with whatever methods they could. Czechoslovakia’s resistance led to Adolf Hitler’s third in command, SS General Reinhard Heydrich and architect of the Final Solution, being stationed to Prague, where he instituted a brutal crackdown on the…

Movie Review: In the Heart of the Sea (2015)

He follows such other…

Movie Review: Transcendence (2014)

Science-fiction fans are no strangers to tales of artificial intelligence, and even the average film-goer has had his share of computers gone wild. These films range from thought-provoking and thrilling (films like “The Matrix,” “2001: A Space Odyssey”) to enjoyably fun and entertaining (I’m thinking of “War Games” and “The Terminator”) to downright awful and…

Movie Trailer: Transcendence (2014)

It’s going to happen some day. Computers will become so advanced they will become aware. How it will happen is anyone’s guess but in Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence it happens when the consciousness of a scientist is implanted into a machine. From the trailer released this evening by Warner Bros. even with the best…

Movie Review: In Time (2011)

I often feel like I don’t have enough time in the day to get everything done (I could always use a few more hours for movie watching!), but such complaining pales in comparison to the plight of the citizens of Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi parable In Time. For them, time is their lifeblood and not having…
