Movie Review: The Jungle Book (2016)

“Sometimes, rules are meant to be, well not necessarily broken, but certainly bent — and definitely reinterpreted; don’t you think?,” says Baloo to a bee-stung Mowgli as the man-cub angrily makes his way to the man-village where, as his sage mentor Bagheera has indicated, he must go back to if he wants to avoid a…

Movie Review: Rock the Kasbah (2015)

To be quite honest, the trailers for the newest Bill Murray vehicle, Rock the Kasbah, did not leave me with a very positive vibe, but as a professional, I never (well, ALMOST never) let a preview color my perception of the whole output, the proof being in the pudding, so to speak. However, after viewing…

Movie Review: Aloha (2015)

Cameron Crowe’s latest film, Aloha, his first larger scale project since 2011’s “We Bought a Zoo,” does not, unfortunately, come with the zest and alacrity of it or some of his earlier better works, like “Jerry Maguire.” It is light-hearted, well-intentioned (Hawaiian virtues are espoused) fare tailored to an audience that sees space as something…

Movie Review: The Monuments Men (2014)

There’s not much more frustrating than a film that comes so close to being thought-provoking and perceptive, but chooses instead to focus on apathetic plights and easy solutions. The Monuments Men embodies this all too well, dangling fascinating questions just out of reach, all the while cycling through a series of genre tropes from rousing…

Movie Review: Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

The key to appreciating any Wes Anderson film (memorable efforts as “Rushmore,” “The Royal Tenenbaums”), is to have the ability to either pick up on his clipped and funny dialogue (usually voiced by actors in a totally serious deadpan monotone), or somehow connect with his goofy situations and quirky characters that slip between incredibly believable…

Movie Trailer: Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Puppy love. It can make kids do stupid things. In Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, for which the first trailer was just released today, it causes Suzy and Sam to run away from their “normalish” lives to live on a small island together relying on Sam’s boy scout abilities to survive. This, predictably, doesn’t go well…

Movie Review: Passion Play (2010)

Many a man believes Megan Fox is an angel. Not necessarily one that resides in heaven with a halo over its head, mind you, but more in the you’re in my sexual fantasies kind of way. In Passion Play, Mitch Glazer’s directorial debut, Mrs. Fox combines both elements — she pouts and purses her lips…
