Movie Review: Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)

Unpredictable is a word one could use to describe filmmaker Drew Goddard, known for penning such polarizing films as “Cloverfield” and “The Cabin in the Woods,” as the “Daredevil” TV series creator is certainly not shy of finding the proverbial box and intentionally jumping outside of its lines. Though his fan-base reaches from the most…

Movie Review: Fifty Shades Freed (2018)

And with that, the war on Valentine’s Day is over. It took two films, but finally Christian (Jamie Dornan, “Anthropoid”) shows off the smarts they said made him capable of running a company: Using just one ring rather than many cables to bind his love, Anastasia (Dakota Johnson, “How to Be Single”). Fifty Shades Freed…

Movie Review: How to be Single (2016)

Some romantic comedies can be conventional in nature and not really want to invest in anything substantive beyond the familiar follow-the-dots formula of lightweight lunacy.

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: Need for Speed (2014)

“The Fast and the Furious” is a great movie. When compared to the latest fast car drama, Need for Speed, that is. It has more fully developed characters played by more interesting actors, a less implausible plot, better choreographed racing and cuter cheerleaders. That last one is a bit of stretch, however; there really are…
