The Critical Movie Critics

Eventually I'll put something nifty here. Until then, know that I'm watching you. Closely.


Movie Review: My Scientology Movie (2015)

There’s been a renewed interest in the Church of Scientology and that’s probably because of the commercial success of HBO’s “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” and A&E’s “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” television series (there are a few other documentaries on the topic, but they mostly regurgitate the same talking points)….

Movie Review: The Magnificent Seven (2016)

Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven is set in a world where even having a drink requires vigilance. The film opens with Bartholomew Bogue’s (Peter Sarsgaard, “Black Mass”) hostile takeover of Rose Creek, a small mining community. This results in the deaths of countless settlers — most notably Matthew Cullen (Matt Bomer, “The Nice Guys”), whose…

Movie Review: Creed (2015)

Sports movies are very predictable. Both cautionary tales and underdog stories end in almost surefire victory. Given their foolproof game plans, the only way to decide whether one of these movies is good or not is by how pumped-up you get watching it. Without any notable competition, Antoine Fuqua’s summer boxing drama “Southpaw” has become…

Movie Review: The Green Inferno (2013)

Eli Roth’s bloodbath, The Green Inferno, stars Lorenza Izzo (“Sex Ed”) as Justine, an oblivious college freshman who joins a social activism group constantly rallying on her New York campus. The crusade, led by older student Alejandro (Ariel Levy, “The Stranger”) and his girlfriend Kara (Ignacia Allamand, “Best Worst Friends”), is planning a trip to…

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…

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…

Movie Review: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Mad Max: Fury Road has an eclectic collection of keywords listed on its main IMDb page like: “desert,” “feminism,” “pregnant woman,” “exploding car,” “peak oil,” and “dark future.” Oddly enough, they’re all fairly accurate. The film, marking the fourth installment in George Miller’s “Mad Max” series (and the first without Mel Gibson), follows Max (now…
