Movie Review: Mudbound (2017)

Set in post World War II Mississippi, Mudbound — based on Hillary Jordan’s Bellwether Prize-winning novel — tells the story of Henry and Laura McAllan, a white farming family, and Hap and Florence Jackson, the black sharecroppers who live on and work their land. Both families have — among other similarities and commonalities — relatives…

Movie Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings may be light on characterization and depth, but it is abundant in atmosphere and scene-to-scene, gripping drama.

Movie Trailer: Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)

Movie Trailer: Pompeii (2014)

Well because it’s got his trademarks all over it, including his oft-criticized, over-the-top, CGIed-to-death disaster sequence. Apparently, however, Paul W.S. Anderson, director of such bombastic outings like “Resident Evil: Retribution” and “The Three Musketeers” asked to borrow…

Movie Review: Django Unchained (2012)

Highly influential, passionately inspired, and awfully long-winded, Quentin Tarantino has amassed a filmography that is soaked in self-indulgence. He’s made some great movies regardless, but I find myself now exhausted by his work, even if at times I’m thrilled and engaged. The experience of watching a Tarantino movie tends to be a scattered one, pieces…
