Movie Review: The Sisters Brothers (2018)

“Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home” — John Howard Payne The Smothers Brothers they are not. Brothers Eli (John C. Reilly, “Kong: Skull Island”) and Charlie (Joaquin Phoenix, “You Were Never Really Here”) Sisters, known to all as the Sisters Brothers, are deadly…

Movie Review: Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

In my opinion, both the book and the movie versions of “Fifty Shades of Grey” (originally “Master of the Universe,” a “Twilight” fan fiction penned by Snowqueens Icedragon, who has since adopted the pen name E.L. James) have generated far more attention, money, and drama than they’re worth. While I have not read the book,…

Movie Trailer: Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

Focus Features has released the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, the film adaptation of E. L. James novel of sexual fantasy, and I can already hear the exasperated gasps. Why this particular book struck a chord with every woman alive, I’ve no idea but the film is certain to liven things up further….

Movie Review: Dracula Untold (2014)

As a screen icon, Dracula has been reinvented over and over again. And many more overs.

He’s drawn the acute attention of such filmmaking masters as Murnau and…

In truth, the film, centered around an elaborate butter-carving competition, is an admirable attempt at parody, but while it offers a lot by way of…

Movie Review: Moneyball (2011)

Much like athletes, who run on daily workouts, strict diets, and practice, sports films operate on inspiration. And there’s something about the genre that makes grown men cry their eyes out. Perhaps it’s the machismo, making even the most collected male feel comfortable in shedding a tear or two (definitely more masculine to get emotional…

Movie Review: Fright Night (2011)

In the second remake to release this week, director Craig Gillespie (“Mr. Woodcock“) brings us Fright Night, which, penned by Marti Noxon, is loosely based on Tom Holland’s 1985 film of the same name. Fortunately, unlike the retelling of “Conan the Barbarian,” it’s an entertaining update of a cult-classic. On the outskirts of Las Vegas,…
