Movie Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)

Mexican cartels are bad and Emily Blunt is good. These are the main takeaways from the generic sequel Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which serves only as an overlong, unnecessary reminder of how gripping Denis Villeneuve’s 2015 predecessor was. This continuation of the story that follows government agents embroiled in the drug war jettisons Blunt’s…

Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Over the past decade, Marvel Studios have proved time and again their mastery of the superhero genre. Central to this success is the combination of superhero tropes with other genres: World War II film with “Captain America: The First Avenger,” conspiracy thriller with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” heist movie with “Ant-Man,” high school comedy…

Movie Trailer: Deadpool 2 (2018)

The “Merc with a Mouth” aka Deadpool is back from his explosive intro in “Deadpool” with a nice and shiny new (and amazingly not red-band) trailer to Deadpool 2. Along with his 4th wall breaks and general disregard for manners or socially acceptable behavior, his frenemy Cable (Josh Brolin) makes his much hyped appearance in…

Movie Trailer: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Dusting off the smell of the superhero ensemble disappointment of “Justice League” comes the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War and it does not disappoint. Putting differences aside that forced a split between the Avengers in “Captain America: Civil War,” the heroes — with the aid of Black Panther, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange,…

Movie Review: Hail, Caesar! (2016)

Have you ever hailed someone? You know, much more than just greeting, rather saluting in a profound, almost belittling veneration signaling an orderly obedience. Neither have I. I’ve been close, though. I’m too much of a fetishist to resist the temptation every now and then. My kind of people are artists and thinkers, preferably dead…

Movie Review: Everest (2015)

Many critics are calling Everest absolutely beautiful, but without the human emotion necessary to make it a truly great adventure movie. I take some exception to that, though, as I saw much emotional impact, but with the actors wearing googles, oxygen masks and heavy clothing, it was often difficult to distinguish one from the other…

Movie Review: Sicario (2015)

Denis Villeneuve’s last film, 2013’s “Prisoners,” had everything: Gripping story; beautiful camerawork; and a great performance from Jake Gyllenhaal alongside Hugh Jackson. His follow-up Sicario only has the star-studded cast. Emily Blunt (“Edge of Tomorrow”) plays an FBI agent, Kate Macer, who enlists to join an escalating drug war between the U.S. and Mexico, in…
