Movie Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

There is an idealized Wonder Woman. It’s vague and often inconsistent in description, but seemingly ethereal in public consciousness, in spite of any prior comic book knowledge, or lack thereof. I would compare the cultural assumption to Superman, and the balancing act the original Richard Donner film had to pull off. The benefit of finally…

Movie Trailer: Wonder Woman (2017)

It’s Comic-Con time again so that means it’s time for a flurry of movie trailers. One of the first major ones to drop is the next cog in DC’s cinematic universe, Wonder Woman (A “Justice League” trailer showed up too). She was introduced to fans in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but this one…

Movie Review: Big Eyes (2014)

For years now, Tim Burton has seemingly lost the ability to surprise. So his latest picture succeeds on that modest level by actually being somewhat decent. Big Eyes, a strange true story about deceit in the world of art and marriage, is hardly Burton at his best, but it’s certainly Burton at his most enjoyable…

Movie Review: The Congress (2013)

Loosely based on Stanislaw…

Movie Review: Hitchcock (2012)

There’s a unique sprinkling of cinematic magic that touches the infamous shower scene in “Psycho” so memorably and effectively that watching the scene, dissecting the scene, experiencing the scene is great fun from any angle. So with this automatic reaction hardwired to my senses, I very much enjoyed seeing the scene recreated with moderate gusto…

Movie Trailer: Hitchcock (2012)

Ever wondered what the difficulties iconic director Alfred Hitchcock had to endure to make his masterpiece “Psycho?” Well wonder no more as Hitchcock, based off of the novel, “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” by Stephen Rebello, lays them out for you. Whether, they’re enough to tantalize for an hour or two is another…

Movie Review: Wrath of the Titans (2012)

Forget the Gods — a cool concept soured by poor writing is enough to make this movie critic angry! Such was the case with 2010’s “Clash of the Titans,” a remake of the 1981 film of the same name. Yet, while critically-panned (deservedly so), the fantasy based on Greek mythology still managed to gross $493…
