Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018)

Zoë Kravitz’s (“Rough Night”) character in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Leta Lestrange, tells the franchise’s bashful hero, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne, “The Danish Girl”), “You never met a monster you couldn’t love.” The line is actually quite interchangeable with the film itself.

Movie Review: The Danish Girl (2015)

The story of Danish painter Einar Wegener’s transition into Lili Elbe seems tailor-made for cinematic examination.

The leads are more than adequate; they own the roles of Hawking and his…

And like in “The Matrix” what she can become frightens those in power. It’s got all the makings of…

Movie Review: My Week With Marilyn (2011)

The vast majority of film characters who are addicted to pills and alcohol should not be the main characters in movie scripts. These characters are frequently one dimensional and are only required to slur words, stumble over steps, and make a nuisance of themselves. There are exceptions (Nicolas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas) as there…
