Movie Review: Child 44 (2015)

There’s plenty to like about director Daniel Espinosa’s (“Safe House”) latest politically-driven crime thriller, Child 44. There’s a strict hierarchy of Iron Curtain power, no holds barred bloodshed, costumes that rival the best period pieces and, most importantly, a mesmerizing story (based off of Tom Rob Smith’s novel bearing the same name). There’s plenty of…

Movie Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings may be light on characterization and depth, but it is abundant in atmosphere and scene-to-scene, gripping drama. It’s biblical by nature, and although it does not delve as far as some would like into the lives of Moses or Ramses II, it is well-intentioned, thought-provoking and flashy. The CGI,…

Movie Trailer: Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)

The stories in the Bible are some of the best to bring to life on screen and Ridley Scott knows a thing or two about breathing life into pictures of epic proportions. The two meet in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming drama, Exodus: Gods and Kings. It starts as a personal tale involving the division of…

Movie Review: The Counselor (2013)

If ever you were looking for a movie where every day, conversational dialogue is turned into a form of deep, philosophical lecturing, then stop your search now, The Counselor is it. What you’ll also find is it’s a fresh, innovative, suspenseful film that, while suffering at times from a slow, disjointed tempo, has an intriguing…

Movie Review: Prometheus (2012)

Director Ridley Scott returns to his “Alien” roots with Prometheus, a lavish prequel, well done in its visuals and aesthetics, yet somewhat soulless as a whole. And while the plot brings the story of rogue — almost invincible — entities wiping out various interstellar crews full circle, one wonders what the point of the entire…

Movie Trailer #2: Prometheus (2012)

A three-minute long spoilerish trailer for the sci-fi horror pic Prometheus has gone viral today. In it, the alien intelligence that beckoned us (meaning humans) to the farthest reaches of the universe prove to not be friendly. As a matter of fact, it seems they somehow want to use us to repopulate their species and…
