Movie Review: Zootopia (2016)

There is something satisfying about five thirty-something men going into an afternoon screening of an animated “children’s” film that features talking animals, and noting other audience members of a similar age. That was my experience of Zootopia (re-named “Zootropolis” in the UK), as myself and four friends of a similar age found ourselves in a…

Movie Review: Beasts of No Nation (2015)

It’s not always easy to do the right thing, even in a stable world. When the going gets tough, you know you’re supposed to do what’s right, but instead you do wrong. That’s the unfortunate reality of our responses to everyday situations . . . but what happens when your support system is gone? What…

Movie Trailer: Star Trek Beyond (2016)

If by chance you thought the Star Trek series, after “Star Trek Into Darkness,” was going to switch gears and focus less on explosive action sequences and more on the spirit of discovery, don’t watch this first teaser trailer for Star Trek Beyond. Paramount Pictures has doubled down on the action instead, going so far…

Movie Review: The Gunman (2015)

Pierre Morel certainly knows a thing or two about molding celebrated thespians into B-movie action heroes, having previously kicked off Liam Neeson’s twilight transformation into a growly ass-kicker with the first “Taken” flick, but not everyone can make the transition so smoothly. Sean Penn seems an even unlikelier B-pic headliner than Neeson once was, considering…

Movie Review: Thor: The Dark World (2013)

There’s nothing more disappointing than a sequel that does not live up to the original film it came from, therefore, my cinematic experiences over the years dealing with such efforts have certainly been tragic. Yes, there have been second films that have equaled or surpassed the original (“The Empire Strikes Back,” “Superman 2,” “The Godfather:…

Movie Trailer #2: Thor: The Dark World (2013)

If we’re to infer anything from the latest trailer for Thor: The Dark World it’s that brawn alone cannot save the universe from its latest threat. Aside from some very impressive action shots and wonderful views of Asgard, the trailer applies more spotlight to the fact Thor (Chris Hemsworth) needs his power-hungry brother Loki (Tom…

Movie Review: Pacific Rim (2013)

Laden with clamorous battle scenes, sweeping visual effects and a fairly conventional storyline, Pacific Rim delivers in its appeal but lingers dangerously close to the entrance to the vault of forgettable, inconsequential summer films. That’s mostly due to the fact this — in the most simplistic of analogies — “Godzilla” meets “Transformers” movie suffers from…
