Movie Review: The Greatest Showman (2017)

The Greatest Showman is a confusing animal. Its opening frames begin the movie by displaying the familiar and orchestral 20th Century Fox logo used from the 50s through the 80s, implying the audience is in for a reverent throwback to the classic Hollywood musicals of yore. Then — literally six seconds later — the studio’s…

Movie Review: Logan (2017)

For those thinking that Hugh Jackman’s final exit from the Wolverine character would be nothing but an exercise in the same origins story told twice before (and fairly poorly, I might add), prepare to be pleasantly surprised with Logan. This departure from the regular superhero comic book (okay, graphic novel, if you will) adaptation takes…

Movie Trailer: Logan (2017)

Yes, even Father Time catches up to Wolverine. In what is expected to be Hugh Jackman’s last go as the taloned anti-hero, Wolverine has markedly aged in the upcoming Logan. That of course doesn’t mean he can’t dish out cold Adamantium justice though. With the X-Men gone and Professor Charles Xavier suffering Alzheimer’s, Logan must…

Movie Review: Eddie the Eagle (2016)

To call Eddie the Eagle an uplifting feel-good film is an understatement. This spectacular tale of human achievement tugs on the heartstrings of its audience, as it hilariously details the life and times of British skier Eddie Edwards. This rare sports/comedy/drama matches the charm of its influence by focusing on the perseverance and humorous undertone…

Movie Review: Pan (2015)

The local theater where I went to view the latest Peter Pan adventure (I found myself the ONLY one in attendance, by the way), Pan, inadvertently began showing the film “Black Mass.” I went to the manager to alert them of the error, however, two hours later, I wished I hadn’t opened my big mouth….

Movie Review: Chappie (2015)

Over the course of three films, Neill Blomkamp has demonstrated a consistent interest in the body and the effects of the world upon it. “District 9” featured transformation into the undesirable while “Elysium” highlighted the inscription of class divisions onto the body. Chappie continues this conceit but with a reversal of Blomkamp’s debut — rather…

Movie Trailer: Pan (2015)

Forget what you know about Peter Pan (aka “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up”) because Warner Bros. with their prequel Pan is going to make some changes. His devil-may-care attitude will certainly remain though as director Joe Wright tracks his beginnings as a rebellious orphan to his leading of the tribes of Neverland. Seemingly new…
