Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Edge of Tomorrow drops us into the middle of a war against an alien invasion as much as it does its protagonist, Major William Cage (Tom Cruise). We don’t know how or why these aliens invaded, and we don’t see the world react to their initial arrival, already making the film differ from the majority…

Movie Review: The Wind Rises (2013)

For what is supposedly his final film, anime master Hayao Miyazaki ambitiously departs from his usual genre territory and yet still honors his innermost passions while once again expressing wonder through the imaginative eyes of its protagonist. The Wind Rises stands out in Miyazaki’s filmography because not only is it anchored in reality when nearly…

Movie Review: Looper (2012)

Stop me if you’ve heard the premise of Looper before. 2044. Time travel hasn’t been invented yet.

Movie Review: The Five-Year Engagement (2012)

I tried to make a list of movies which I laughed at less than Universal’s newest release, The Five-Year Engagement, and could only think of two: “Observe and Report” and “The Passion of the Christ.” Films I found much funnier include: “The Love Guru,” “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” “All About Steve” and “Platoon.” That does…

Movie Review: Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011)

An Arab sheikh with more money than sense wants to import the sport and/or lifestyle of salmon fishing from cold and rainy Scotland to the barren desert of Yemen. In the meantime, the British government is floundering from scandal to scandal and greedily seizes upon the idea of a cultural rapprochement between the West and…
