Movie Review: Secret in Their Eyes (2015)

Nothing has more impact on a nation than when an act of terrorism hits home. A disaster like that brings a rattled world together with a resolve to press forward through strength and perseverance. That same notion also extends individually from person to person and when a devastating catastrophe happens to you or someone close…

Remember (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Remember (2015)

Memory minds. It minds who you are, but, more particularly, who you were. It minds who you love, but, quite peculiarly, who you hate. For Zev and Max, it all has been a long ride till retaliation. For if it is true that no vengeance is possible without memory, no grievances exist when they cannot…

Crimson Peak (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Crimson Peak (2015)

Crimson Peak is one of the most beautifully crafted visual experiences I’ve had in a movie theater in a while. Guillermo del Toro certainly knows how to put together beautiful imagery, whether it’s a fantasy masterpiece like “Pan’s Labyrinth” or a comic book adaptation like “Hellboy.” His movies are amazing to just *look* at, and…

Movie Review: The Curse of Downers Grove (2015)

As the title, The Curse of Downers Grove, suggests, there’s a curse on the small town of Downers Grove — each year, a senior dies in the days leading up to graduation. I incorrectly assumed the curse would be supernatural, and as soon-to-graduate high school senior Chrissie (Bella Heathcote, “Dark Shadows”) tells her friends, it’s…

Movie Review: Irrational Man (2015)

I will approach this review a little differently if you don’t mind. But allow me first to tell you a little story. I made an irrational choice. I started my review for Irrational Man before I even saw the movie. Irrational indeed. I started this review before I even knew whether this movie was going…

The Gift (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: The Gift (2015)

Jason Bateman seems a pretty likable guy, despite his penchant for sharp, sarcastic characters. Gone are the days of the sweet, nurturing, unassuming hero; we as a society are deeply entrenched in the era of the sarcastic everyman — the guy who doesn’t simply turn the other cheek. This is the guy who reminds you…

Every Secret Thing (2014) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Every Secret Thing (2014)

Every Secret Thing begins with a birthday party — a pool party. 11-year-old Alice is thrilled to have been invited, but she’s really annoyed that her mother makes her bring Ronnie along. Ronnie is weird, quiet, and awkward, and she’s stalling Alice’s plans to be a popular girl. Also, Alice really doesn’t like that her…
