Movie Review: Danny Collins (2015)

Al Pacino is one of the most revered and respected actors in Hollywood history, and for good reason. For over forty years, he has graced our screens with his electrifying presence, creating some of the silver screen’s most memorable characters. From the chilling resolve of Michael Corleone in “The Godfather Trilogy” to the histrionics of…

Movie Review: Welcome to Me (2014)

She enters in a swan boat to a meager audience barely populating the struggling studio wherein her talk show is being recorded and aired for the first time. Her is she. She is me. Me is Alice Klieg. Alice is a Californian divorcee in her early 40’s who has been fighting against mental illness for…

Movie Review: Ted 2 (2015)

Like so many sequels, especially of comedy films, a serious drought of what made the first funny and charming takes place in Ted 2, forcing writers to substitute true laughs with obscenities (saying the “F” word over and over does not make it any more clever), crude jokes and, in this case, far too many…

Movie Review: Inside Out (2015)

After commercially-successful and Oscar-winning — but bland and unfulfilling — features such as “Brave” and “Big…

Movie Trailer: Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

You can say Po, the lovable panda of “Kung Fu Panda” and “Kung Fu Panda 2” is a lot of things, smart just isn’t one of them. Apparently, it isn’t a strong suit of his birth father’s either. In this third installment aptly titled Kung Fu Panda 3, Po (voiced again by Jack Black) now…

Movie Review: Spy (2015)

After such critical bombs and/or not very good comedies as “The Hangover Part III,” “Tammy” and “Identity Theft,” there’s finally a Melissa McCarthy vehicle we can smile and laugh at — intentionally. Unfortunately, her latest turn in the new Paul Feig (“Bridesmaids,” “The Heat”) directed film, Spy, as an unprepared, mousy analyst/secret agent, loses those…

Movie Review: Aloha (2015)

Cameron Crowe’s latest film, Aloha, his first larger scale project since 2011’s “We Bought a Zoo,” does not, unfortunately, come with the zest and alacrity of it or some of his earlier better works, like “Jerry Maguire.” It is light-hearted, well-intentioned (Hawaiian virtues are espoused) fare tailored to an audience that sees space as something…
