Movie Review: Doctor Strange (2016)

The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is a curious film of links. There are links between its world and the wider MCU. The central premise depends on links between different dimensions, from which sorcerers draw and utilize mystical energy. And it manages the tricky task of forging links between magic and science,…

Movie Trailer: Doctor Strange (2016)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps marching forward, even with, as some would say, their lesser echelon characters leading the way.

Movie Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Wes Anderson’s filmmaking fingerprints are distinctive, to say the least. His delicate touch is visible in every frame of his carefully constructed pictures, as if he’s built each cinematic world entirely with his own two hands. It’s impressive, but occasionally the result is too mechanically quirky for its own good. And it often feels like…
