Movie Review: Patriots Day (2016)

For the third time in recent history (with the same lead actor no less), director Peter Berg takes a contemporary event — U.S. troops in Afghanistan in “Lone Survivor,” an oil rig disaster in “Deepwater Horizon” and now with Patriots Day, the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing — brings it to the big screen and leaves…

Movie Review: La La Land (2016)

With a cut and a kick and an upbeat note, Damien Chazelle sure paints a pretty picture of classic Hollywood musical nostalgia, but La La Land is more plastic pastiche than poignant portrait. It’s a technical marvel that’s dramatically weightless, a boldly bravura effort from writer/director Damien Chazelle and his crew that’s also too cutesy…

Movie Review: The Accountant (2016)

There’s certainly no accounting as to why Ben Affleck (“Gone Girl”) would choose this, The Accountant, a tepid and convoluted thriller to star in, but all I know is I wish I could deduct the two-plus hours I spent at the cinema to see it; time I will never get back in a refund next…

Movie Trailer: Justice League (2017)

Movie Review: Zootopia (2016)

There is something satisfying about five thirty-something men going into an afternoon screening of an animated “children’s” film that features talking animals, and noting other audience members of a similar age. That was my experience of Zootopia (re-named “Zootropolis” in the UK), as myself and four friends of a similar age found ourselves in a…

Movie Review: Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

Everyone can agree that the exceedingly spry “Kung Fu Panda” film series have been certified exquisite and adventurous productions from day one. It is no surprise that the third installment, Kung Fu Panda 3, continues to carry the mantle by being a gorgeously stylish and visually arresting computer-animation film exuding a vibrant cheekiness that shines. More important…

Movie Review: Terminator Genisys (2015)

Terminator Genisys marks the fifth installment in the beloved franchise but it’s not, unfortunately, made for fans. Or anyone else for that matter. The script, written by Laeta Kalogridis (“Shutter Island”) and Patrick Lussier (whose biggest claim to fame is “Drive Angry”), does as much as it can to bring those uninitiated with the series…
