Movie Review: A Quiet Place (2018)

“Who are we if we can’t protect them?” Evelyn Abbott (Emily Blunt, “The Girl on the Train”) asks her husband Lee (John Krasinski, “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi”) in one of the only scenes in A Quiet Place in which dialogue can even be heard. The “them” Evelyn is referring to are her…

Movie Review: The Girl on the Train (2016)

Imagine if “Rear Window” were in motion, the fragmented but persistent yearning to see given (literal) added dynamism.

Sondheim’s playful lyrics and rich humor ensure that his…

Movie Trailer: Into the Woods (2014)

With Into the Woods, Walt Disney Pictures does just that, threading elements of Cinderella, Little Red Riding…
