Movie Review: Missing Link (2019)

Missing Link, Laika’s latest stop-motion animated feature, opens not unlike an Indiana Jones entry. Our protagonist, Sir Lionel Frost (voiced by Hugh Jackman, “ The Greatest Showman”), along with his assistant, attempt to take pictures of the Loch Ness Monster. However, Frost quickly loses control of the situation, and despite his own precision and deftness,…

Movie Review: Keeping Up with the Joneses (2016)

What a squandered opportunity for director Greg Mottola to churn out a generically noisy suburban spy spoof in the toothless comedy caper Keeping Up with the Joneses. Woefully strained and exhaustive, Mottola’s off-kilter espionage bag of cheap chuckles barely manages to scrape off a scattered selection of smirks here and there. It never takes full…

Movie Review: Masterminds (2016)

It’s difficult to make a comedy these days without it devolving into either juvenile slapstick buffoonery or an ignorant vulgarity-laden vehicle for the nation’s lowest common denominators. It’s especially hard when such a film’s protagonist is so completely devoid of intelligence or even common sense as to be totally unrelatable and unsympathetic throughout. Oh, and…

Movie Review: Birdman (2014)

“For what else is the life of man but a kind of play in which men in various costumes perform until the director motions them offstage?” – Erasmus Once you add up the upcoming films from Marvel and DC studios, there are twenty-two “superhero” films being planned over the course of the next four years….

Movie Trailer: Birdman (2014)

Now this is something interesting from Fox Searchlight. It’s Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) and it tells the tale of a has-been actor desperate for a comeback. From the trailer, it’s clear he hasn’t taken his fall from the spotlight very well, battling with his own internal demons as well as co-stars (and…

Movie Review: Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

It’s not easy being mean, err, I mean green. Actually, I can’t imagine either of them being particularly easy, even though both Constantine and Kermit the Frog carry both of them off as they were. Since 1955 (and more recently in 2011’s “The Muppets”) audiences have seen Kermit doing his ‘green’ thing; in Muppets Most…

Movie Trailers: Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

They say everyone has a twin (or something along those lines) and that fact is at the heart of Disney’s new Muppet movie, Muppets Most Wanted. Kermit the Frog, we find, has a look alike — save for a birthmark on the right cheek — in Constantine, the worlds most elusive thief. Hilarity, as the…
