Movie Review: Inherent Vice (2014)

There’s walking in circles and then there’s walking in circles the Paul Thomas Anderson way. Whatever that means. Not that it matters. Who cares, anyway? A flippant attitude for a flippant movie. Except that Inheren...

Movie Review: Zarra’s Law (2014)

From its first scene of dialogue, older Italian men with permanent scowls etched into their world weary faces mumbling to each other in a Brooklyn bar, Zarra’s Law reads like a mob movie made by someone who wants to imita...

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)

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: A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014)

Entering the theater to see A Walk Among the Tombstones, one might stumble and feel trapped in another cliché-ridden “Taken” in which Bryan Mills sternly promises, “I will find you, and I will kill you.” It’s an honest initial ...
