Movie Review: The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016)

For those who believe sequels are and integral part of the filmmaking process, I present the following recent exhibits: “The Hangover Part II,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Ted 2.” Yes, I realize there are also other examples where the sequel bested the original, such as “The Godfather Part II,” “Superman…

Movie Trailer: Ghostbusters (2016)

It’s taken 30 years for the ghosts in Manhattan to regroup enough to be a concern so large that some had to call for the Ghostbusters again.

Movie Review: Blackhat (2015)

From its opening images of our planet illuminated by technology, to a remarkable long take that takes the viewer through the inner operation and impact of computer processing, Blackhat hooks the viewer both emotionally and intellectually. The film delivers an enthralling rendering of both the macro and micro scale of our interconnected digital world, offering…
