Movie Review: Captain Phillips (2013)

Based on true events, Paul Greengrass’ Captain Phillips is the rarest of thrillers, the kind that relies on neither distracting special effects nor circumspect character development. Driven by a powerful, soul-baring performance by the inimitable Tom Hanks, the movie never lags, never oversells the plight of its characters and never reduces anyone or anything to…

Movie Review: Frances Ha (2012)

Being called “undateable” is sort of like a team player being labeled “uncoachable,” not a strong recommendation.

Based off the official trailer of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (a bootlegged version arrived last week), however, this looks like a bad-ass reboot. The David Fincher…

Movie Review: Failure To Launch (2006)

Everyone, including myself, likes a good romantic comedy every now and then. After watching a few of the trailers for Failure To Launch, I figured it was that time. Failure To Launch is basically like all the romantic comedies before it. Good looking man (this time played by Matthew McConaughey) has a phobia or quirk…
