Movie Review: Nightcrawler (2014)

Atmospheric, nimble, climactic; these are a few adjectives that appropriately describe Nightcrawler. Jake Gyllenhaal as Louis “Lou” Bloom, a creepy and impatient swindler turned stringer, is pleasantly disturbing. On the whole,...

Movie Trailer: Furious 7 (2015)

“One last job,” Dominic Toretto says in this first trailer Furious 7. And because of the death of series lynchpin Paul Walker late last year, I believe him. Even though in each iteration they do manage to dream up a...

Movie Trailer: Inherent Vice (2014)

There’s a lot of questions being asked in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, but don’t expect any answers. At least not in this first outrageous trailer. What you will get, however, is plenty of `70s inspir...

Movie Review: The November Man (2014)
