Movie Review: Legend (2015)

One’s enjoyment (or better yet, interest) in Legend, as written and directed by Brian Helgeland (an Academy Award winner for “L.A. Confidential” and a Razzie winner for “The Postman”), will most likely hinge on one’s ability to understand the deep Cockney accent everyone speaks here (even a universal translator would not help with much of…

Movie Review: Hail, Caesar! (2016)

Have you ever hailed someone? You know, much more than just greeting, rather saluting in a profound, almost belittling veneration signaling an orderly obedience. Neither have I. I’ve been close, though. I’m too much of a fetishist to resist the temptation every now and then. My kind of people are artists and thinkers, preferably dead…

Movie Review: The Danish Girl (2015)

The story of Danish painter Einar Wegener’s transition into Lili Elbe seems tailor-made for cinematic examination. There’s a physical aspect that can be attended to visually as Lili (Eddie Redmayne, Oscar winner for “The Theory of Everything”) comes to the external forefront when Einar begins wearing dresses and wigs.

Movie Review: Everest (2015)

Many critics are calling Everest absolutely beautiful, but without the human emotion necessary to make it a truly great adventure movie.

Movie Review: The Theory of Everything (2014)

The Theory of Everything is a powerful, sincere film about one of the twentieth century’s greatest minds. That it never becomes mired in maudlin sentiment is astounding, given the standard succeeding-despite-the-odds story of its legendary subject, the esteemed physicist Stephen Hawking. The leads are more than adequate; they own the roles of Hawking and his…

Movie Review: The World’s End (2013)

The “Cornetto Trilogy”, as people started calling it when the prospect of a third film reared its head and we all patiently sat through “Paul,” is surely something to be studied. If you don’t like “Shaun of the Dead,” people treat you like you’re some soulless homunculi poorly imitating human opinion, and with good reason….

Movie Trailer: The World’s End (2013)

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed up again (finally) for Focus Features’ The World’s End. The double entendre title represents not only the end of mankind but is also the name of the bar at the end of a pub crawl, friends — Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan…
