Movie Review: The Words (2012)

“At some point you have to choose between life and fiction. The two are very close, but they never actually touch.” These words of Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal apply as much to their directorial debut, The Words, as they do to the story within it. A touching drama about the world of writing, this…

Movie Review: Dark Skies (2013)

If sci-fi movies have taught us anything, it’s that aliens tend to paint their allegiances in black and white.

The answers to those questions are: It certainly can be improved upon (most everything can…

Movie Review: Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Here it is, Spider-Man 3, the most anticipated movie of the year. As a Spider-Man fan for most of my life, I can safely say I was counting down the days for this release. After “Spider-Man 2,” I found myself yearning for more. Could the third installment best the sequel which actually bested the original…
