Movie Review: The Eagle Huntress (2016)

Sometimes gripping narratives detailing the familiar plight of teen girls do not necessarily have to be about the adversity of choice such as pregnancy, alcoholism, prostitution, domestic abuse, illiteracy or homelessness. There are youthful feminine coming-of-age stories that feel equally captivating in inspiration, determination and the spirit of competition and tradition. In filmmaker Otto Bell’s…

Movie Review: The Peanuts Movie (2015)

I am often chastised for expecting children’s film to be more than childish, but I think there are enough precedents to show that films which often appeal to younger crowds can also be pleasant for their parents (“Inside Out,” “Minions” and “Shaun the Sheep” come to mind in 2015 alone). That is certainly not my…

Movie Review: Monsters University (2013)

While not reaching the heights of the original (or other Pixar classics such as “Finding Nemo,” “The Incredibles,” or “Ratatouille,” among others), Monsters University, a prequel to “Monsters, Inc.,” is a more than decent entry into the lexicon and is certainly light year’s ahead of the last two studio productions, “Cars 2” and “Brave.” It…

Movie Trailer: Monsters University (2013)

You might recall Mike and Sulley from a nondescript movie some years ago, “Monsters, Inc.” Mike was a round green guy with one eye, Sulley was the big hairy blue guy and they were best of friends.

Movie Review: Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010)

“Most events are inexpressible, taking place in a realm which no word has ever entered, and more inexpressible than all else are works of art, mysterious existences, the life of which, while ours passes away, endures.” — Rainer Maria Rilke Werner Herzog’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams is a fascinating journey back in time. In this…

Movie Trailer: Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011)

The high-pitched singing sensations Alvin and the Chipmunks, and The Chipettes are back to fill our ears with squeaky versions of today’s popular songs in Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (I’m not sure that is such a good thing, but nonetheless it’s going to happen). This time, after Alvin screws around on a well-needed vacation…

Movie Review: Winnie the Pooh (2011)

Prior to my screening of Stephen J. Anderson and Don Hall’s Winnie the Pooh, an adaptation of the beloved A.A. Milne and Ernest Shepard books, a military recruitment ad (complete with tattooed musclemen who, cradling monstrous rifles, ran through enemy-fire, barking orders) terrified the young audience made up of rampageous toddlers that parents had brought…
