Movie Review: LX 2048 (2020)

Science fiction films have a tendency to remind you of other science fiction films. This is part of the fun, and very much the case with LX 2048. Writer-director Guy Moshe’s tale of a technologically determined dystopia features a bureaucrat, Adam Bird (James D’Arcy, “Dunkirk”), who is reminiscent of “Brazil.” The high-tech setting a decaying…

Movie Review: Dunkirk (2017)

In 1940, more than 300,000 Allied soldiers were trapped and surrounded by German forces in Dunkirk, France. It was a devastating blow and a key victory in the Battle of France; Hitler would not be stopped for five more years. However, the evacuation and rescue of the troops by British destroyers and other smaller vessels,…

Movie Review: Jupiter Ascending (2014)

With each successive movie, Andy and Lana Wachowski prove that their imagination is practically unrivalled in Hollywood and that their awesome ability to bring that imagination to lush, limitless life puts them in the company of cinema’s greatest modern magicians. So it seems only fair that when the sibling team takes on the space opera…

Movie Trailer: Jupiter Ascending (2014)

Jupiter is the “One.” Maybe not in quite the way Neo was the “One” in the Wachowski’s “Matrix” series, but she is definitely a game changer in the Wachowski’s upcoming science fiction action movie Jupiter Ascending. And like in “The Matrix” what she can become frightens those in power. It’s got all the makings of…

Movie Review: Hitchcock (2012)

There’s a unique sprinkling of cinematic magic that touches the infamous shower scene in “Psycho” so memorably and effectively that watching the scene, dissecting the scene, experiencing the scene is great fun from any angle. So with this automatic reaction hardwired to my senses, I very much enjoyed seeing the scene recreated with moderate gusto…

Movie Review: Screwed (2011)

Screwed is a surprise; the monochromatic DVD cover masking a film that is simplistic yet intelligent, gritty but also emotionally in check, a scrappy little crime drama anchored by an above-the-grade performance from James D’Arcy (turning in equally strong work in “Cloud Atlas” this year). Based on the book by Ronnie Thompson, a former prison…

Movie Review: Cloud Atlas (2012)

Cloud Atlas is a challenge. It does not arrive as 99% of its film peers do, with a beginning, middle, and an end. Six different stories spanning over 500 years of time are woven together and make your mind work overtime not only keeping them apart, which is its job while you watch the film,…
