Movie Review: Bright (2017)

There isn’t a solitary way to absorb and dissect the various idiosyncrasies and potentials that exist within Netflix’s most expensive feature film, Bright. Director David Ayer has teamed up with screenwriter Max Landis to conjure up a world where “Lord of the Rings” wants to be a gritty police remake of “Harry Potter.” A novel…

Movie Review: Gold (2016)

Matthew McConaughey (“Interstellar”) stars in Gold, a dreary rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches-to-rags tale directed by Stephen Gaghan (“Syriana”) that, while the Academy Award-winning actor (for “Dallas Buyers Club”) gives a passionate, above average performance (along with a perky Bryce Dallas Howard, “Pete’s Dragon”) in, the narrative of a 1980s mining company striking it rich is often muddled and…

Movie Review: The Girl on the Train (2016)

Imagine if “Rear Window” were in motion, the fragmented but persistent yearning to see given (literal) added dynamism. What we glimpse through windows is always partial, but if viewed from a moving train the glimpse is even more fleeting. Then replace James Stewart in a wheelchair with Emily Blunt addled by alcohol and you have…

Movie Review: Hands of Stone (2016)

Following the well-laid plans of just about every pugilistic biopic ever made (with the exception of “Raging Bull” and “The Fighter”), director Jonathan Jakubowicz with Hands of Stone, plods along (just like his subject’s boxing style) in this familiar telling of the rise of a famous boxer, in this case, Roberto Durán (Edgar Ramírez, “The…

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…

Movie Trailer: Wrath of the Titans (2012)

This is certainly a step in the right direction. I’m speaking about the trailer to Wrath of the Titans, the follow-up to the much maligned Clash of the Titans remake. It looks as though Warner Bros. Pictures may have listened to the gripes of movie goers and come out with something with more action and…

Movie Review: The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

The Bourne Ultimatum is the third installment of the “Bourne” saga. This movie picks up right after Jason Bourne apologizes to the Neski daughter, without pause after the events of the second film, which may leave newcomers to the series a little perplexed. If you have seen the first two films, which I recommend before…
