Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast (2017)

This latest Disney picture, Beauty and the Beast, joins a growing list of live-action movies which traces its origins to animated films, including “The Jungle Book,” “Pete’s Dragon,” “Cinderella” and “Maleficent,” among others. The bar here, however, is just a bit higher, considering the 1991 edition became the first animated feature to earn a Best…

Movie Review: Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

It’s not easy being mean, err, I mean green. Actually, I can’t imagine either of them being particularly easy, even though both Constantine and Kermit the Frog carry both of them off as they were. Since 1955 (and more recently in 2011’s “The Muppets”) audiences have seen Kermit doing his ‘green’ thing; in Muppets Most…

Movie Trailers: Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

They say everyone has a twin (or something along those lines) and that fact is at the heart of Disney’s new Muppet movie, Muppets Most Wanted. Kermit the Frog, we find, has a look alike — save for a birthmark on the right cheek — in Constantine, the worlds most elusive thief. Hilarity, as the…

Movie Review: 21 and Over (2013)

After enduring a series of movies over the past two months so bad that the word “bad” is woefully inadequate, I thought I might have reached the nadir with such titles as “Playing For Keeps,” “The Last Stand,” “A Good Day to Die Hard,” “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” “Parental Guidance,” and other works of…

Movie Review: Warm Bodies (2013)

Zombie movies are always shot from the point of view of the last few and scared survivors. They are outnumbered, running out of ammo, their friends are bitten one by one, and the zombies just keep on coming after their brains. What about a zombie story from the zombie’s point of view? They experience the…

Movie Trailer: 21 and Over (2013)

I do believe our friends responsible for “The Hangover” need to branch out and explore new topics. In some capacity, they were behind the teen raunchfest “Project X” and now they’ve moved onto young adults with 21 and Over. To me it looks like a combination of their previous offerings (even elements of “The Hangover…

Movie Review: The Muppets (2011)

During the mid-fifties American puppeteer Jim Henson, and his muppets, a varied collection of custom marionettes, took the entertainment world by storm. Through the years, the most iconic has been Kermit the Frog, the only “amphibian” to address the Oxford Union, and also the first to receive an honorary doctorate from Southampton College. But although…
