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: Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

Everyone can agree that the exceedingly spry “Kung Fu Panda” film series have been certified exquisite and adventurous productions from day one. It is no surprise that the third installment, Kung Fu Panda 3, continues to carry the mantle by being a gorgeously stylish and visually arresting computer-animation film exuding a vibrant cheekiness that shines. More important…

Movie Review: Terminator Genisys (2015)

Terminator Genisys marks the fifth installment in the beloved franchise but it’s not, unfortunately, made for fans. Or anyone else for that matter. The script, written by Laeta Kalogridis (“Shutter Island”) and Patrick Lussier (whose biggest claim to fame is “Drive Angry”), does as much as it can to bring those uninitiated with the series…

Movie Trailer: Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

Movie Trailer: Terminator: Genisys (2015)

Combining elements of “The Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” comes Terminator: Genisys, a reboot of the cult-favorite franchise. In it, which the trailer alludes to, the timeline has been altered — future fighter, Kyle (now played by Jai Courtney) is still sent back in time to save Sarah Connor (now played by Emilia Clarke),…

Movie Review: Whiplash (2014)

If you are thinking about engaging in some other activity after watching Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash, be sure to leave some time for decompression. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the semi-autobiographical Whiplash is a visceral, adrenaline-pumping musical drama that raises — but does not resolve —…

Movie Review: Jobs (2013)

While watching Jobs one cannot help but think back on the 1999 TNT made-for-TV movie “Pirates of Silicon Valley,” starring Noah Wyle as Steve Jobs and Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates. Well, at least I could not help thinking about that film. It certainly told a much crisper, tighter story of the beginning of…
