Movie Review: The Age of Adaline (2015)

If among our current generation of Hollywood actresses there were any one who embodied the idea of “classic beauty,” it would be Blake Lively. She is undeniably radiant, carrying a grace and poise that few others can master, and in this sense is perfectly cast as Adaline Bowman: A beautiful young woman who ceases to…

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…

Caught up in a simulation ordered by Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet, “Carnage”),…

Movie Review: Focus (2015)

When distilled down to its basest elements, con drama Focus is a light and airy attempt to hearken back to the days of movie star vehicles that require nothing more than mega movie star wattage and a smooth smile to keep their exploits afloat. Even when viewed at surface level, there’s nothing more to the…
