Movie Review: Rough Night (2017)

Oh no, ladies, what are youse doing? Not asking this is not an option when every action to clear bride-to-be Jess (Scarlett Johansson, “Hail, Caesar!”) and her friends’ involuntary-manslaughtering ways in Rough Night is just reducing Lt. Horatio Caine and team’s investigation time. The bachelorette’s activist friend Frankie (Ilana Glazer, “The Night Before”) said it…

Movie Review: Ghost in the Shell (2017)

Based on a popular graphic novel by Marasume Shirow and directed by Rupert Sanders (“Snow White and the Huntsman”), Ghost in the Shell is a visually stunning experience with a fine core performance by Scarlett Johansson (“Captain America: Civil War”), but it borrows so much of other, mostly better science fiction films and TV series,…

Movie Review: The Jungle Book (2016)

“Sometimes, rules are meant to be, well not necessarily broken, but certainly bent — and definitely reinterpreted; don’t you think?,” says Baloo to a bee-stung Mowgli as the man-cub angrily makes his way to the man-village where, as his sage mentor Bagheera has indicated, he must go back to if he wants to avoid a…

For one Black Panther is a bona fide bad ass. He gets himself a healthy does of screen time in this to show his speed, agility and strength….

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 Trailer: Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Most of the original boys and girls from the Avengers have reassembled and among them are some new faces (Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch). Problem is in Captain America: Civil War they aren’t all on the same side. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes his friend-turned-enemy-turned-friend-again Bucky (Sebastian Stan) doesn’t deserve death and is the key to uncovering…
