Movie Review: Ready Player One (2018)

Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is nothing short of biblical for the pop culture enthusiast. More surprisingly, however, is the engaging narrative and even the likable cast of (young) characters. The expensive movie ran Warner Bros. $175 million, but Spielberg’s project does reap the benefits of that expense — with stellar CGI and a virtual…

Movie Review: The Post (2017)

If The Post was little more than a piece of agitprop beating the drums for the value of a free press in a democracy, it would more than justify its reason for being. The fact that it is so much more is a testament to the skills of director Steven Spielberg and the talents of…

Movie Review: Bridge of Spies (2015)

It’s nice to see a film version of an historical incident that that this author had no idea about. As a student of history, I’ve always prided myself on knowing as much as I could on as many subjects in this category as possible; and, like “Argo” (which also featured a classified backdrop) I found…

Movie Review: Lincoln (2012)

Based on a book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin, and directed by Steven Spielberg, the film revolves around the 16th President of the United States of America and specifically with his handling…

Movie Review: Men in Black III (2012)

What I loved about 1997’s “Men in Black” was it embraced its own corniness. The aliens were over-the-top and blew up like Jello molds; the sets had a distinct comic book feel to them; and the story balanced workplace comedy with fantastical backdrops. The style worked, propelling the film to financial and critical greatness. But…

Movie Trailer #2: Men in Black 3 (2012)

Men in Black 3 is looking better than I anticipated. I was quietly concerned the premise had worn out its welcome, but the new trailer released today by Columbia Pictures looks fresh and fun. Will Smith as agent J is slick as ever and Josh Brolin as the young agent K makes a fine straight…
