Movie Review: Zoolander 2 (2016)

Nostalgia and movie sequelitis are the two main ingredients that invite back the majority of films from yesteryear looking to make a big screen impact yet again. This, of course, applies to both cinematic gems and duds alike.  Nowadays, the urge to tap into celebrated or soured fare from yesterday has proven to be a…

Movie Review: Steve Jobs (2015)

Loosely based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography with a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin (“The Social Network”), Danny Boyle’s (“127 Hours”) Steve Jobs is not a conventional biopic of the famous co-founder of Apple Computers but is more like an impressionist painting — short strokes of paint that capture the essence of the subject rather than…

Movie Review: Aloha (2015)

Cameron Crowe’s latest film, Aloha, his first larger scale project since 2011’s “We Bought a Zoo,” does not, unfortunately, come with the zest and alacrity of it or some of his earlier better works, like “Jerry Maguire.” It is light-hearted, well-intentioned (Hawaiian virtues are espoused) fare tailored to an audience that sees space as something…

Though Josh and his…

Movie Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Wes Anderson’s filmmaking fingerprints are distinctive, to say the least. His delicate touch is visible in every frame of his carefully constructed pictures, as if he’s built each cinematic world entirely with his own two hands. It’s impressive, but occasionally the result is too mechanically quirky for its own good. And it often feels like…

Movie Review: Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

Folk music has been around ever since there have been folks, but the folk revival of the 1960s was due in large part to the increased topicality of the songs and their relevance to the changing times. Though singers such as Joan Baez and Ian & Sylvia among others continued to sing traditional ballads, singer/songwriters…

Movie Trailer: The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Today, Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the trailer for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and yes, that is the sound of your brain going into quirk overload. Starring virtually every actor on Earth, the film follows the antics of a suave, well-connected concierge and his lobby-boy protégé as they swindle and romance the guests…
