Movie Review: A Monster Calls (2016)

While this J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”) directed effort (based on a best-selling book by Patrick Ness), A Monster Calls, is a wonderful visual and visceral experience (and currently has critics fawning all over themselves), I, for one, can only wonder for whom this film was made. It’s certainly too dark and foreboding for children —…

Movie Review: Ben-Hur (2016)

Anyone who has read my reviews with any sense of regularity will know that when confronted with a remake or a reboot (which seems to be the norm and not the exception in Hollywood today), I always return to the source film for guidance. These projects usually fall into two categories, a) an improvement upon…

Movie Review: Warcraft (2016)

Duncan Jones’ Warcraft certainly has a lot to live up to. After years of dull, uninspired cinematic translations of classic video games, one of the most fresh and promising new directors has stepped up to bat to try his hand at arguably the most popular franchise in the gaming realms.

With film franchises rebooting every few years, it’s surprising that this series took so long to take the plunge. The first version, “Fantastic Four,” was released by 20th Century Fox in the summer of 2005, when critics called it, “’Spider-Man’ times four,” although at the time, I described it as “Spider-Man” *divided* by four, since…

Movie Trailer #2: The Fantastic Four (2015)

Perhaps not to have their property be drowned out with the flurry of recent high-value trailers (“Ant-Man,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”), 20th Century Fox sets loose another trailer for their upcoming superhero movie, The Fantastic Four. With it, they may also be showing off a bit too…

Movie Trailer: The Fantastic Four (2015)

A good comic book property can’t sit idle for long, nor should it. Having waited an eternity (eight years) 20th Century Fox is finally poised to forget about 2007’s “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” and reboot their family of superheroes with The Fantastic Four. Unfortunately, much of it appears to be an origin…
