Movie Review: Life (2017)

From the premise that all extra-terrestrial life is harmful comes Life, a combination of “Alien,” “The Thing,” “Gravity,” “The Mummy” and a few other trapped-in-space or alien-assimilation movies that we all know and love (or tolerate in some cases). Life is the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station who, while orbiting…

Movie Review: The Space Between Us (2017)

Somehow Hollywood continues to search for different outlets to convey young love at the box office. Sure, the goal is always the same in terms of tapping into the youth market by promoting yet another transparent teen weepie, but this time with The Space Between Us it’s among the stars. Hey, youngsters need catering at…

Movie Review: Time to Choose (2015)

Recently, “Hitman: Agent…

Sadly, what passes for science fiction today is mostly a reflection of a world imprisoned by fear. Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, a visually thrilling film of…

Movie Review: Elysium (2013)

Neill Blomkamp can surely write and direct an original science fiction movie as evidenced in the visually captivating “District 9.” But with the ante raised — a true Hollywood budget, a bona fide movie star starring and a coveted summer release spot — can he deliver again? With Elysium he proves he’s got the imaginative…

Movie Review: Oblivion (2013)

In choppy, frizzed, black and white video, Sally, a boisterous leader with a southern drawl asks, “Are you still an effective team?” Agreeably, the woman on the other end of the line, Victoria, responds with a nod and Sally labors forward with technical orders. But I too, can respond to this inquiry in agreement. Director…
