Movie Review: Ad Astra (2019)

Director James Gray, whose last film, “The Lost City of Z,” garnered serious praise upon release in 2016, has continued his win streak in the exploratory sci-fi film Ad Astra, the Latin phrase for “to the stars.” This Brad Pitt vehicle stands as a powerful character study within a plausible near-future universe, with a hefty…

Movie Review: Jason Bourne (2016)

There are three distinct musical features in the Jason Bourne franchise. The most obvious is Moby’s “Extreme Ways,” played over the credits of each film in various versions.

Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman is a tour-de-force western on the opposite side of…

Movie Review: Lincoln (2012)

In 2012, Abraham Lincoln is on currency, in hundreds of dusty books, and sitting in a chair in his own memorial at one end of the National Mall. His image is stale; he is not a man, but an unknowable symbol. Steven Spielberg, however, fashions the legend into a flesh and blood human being in…

The wait is finally over. The full trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Lincoln is here. Based on a book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin, and directed by Steven Spielberg, the film revolves around the 16th President of the United States of America and specifically with his handling…
