Movie Review: Little Woods (2018)

A progressive rage simmers at the despondent heart of Little Woods. It isn’t just that writer-director Nia DaCosta spends a busy 95 or so minutes examining how working-class economic anxiety often begets the toppling chain of dominoes in those trapped in it, but more so that she tells her story through the lens of a…

Movie Review: The 5th Wave (2016)

“I miss the Cassie I was. I wonder what that Cassie would think of me now — the Cassie who kills.” The introductory voiceover for The 5th Wave is certainly not typical of your run-of-the-mill PG-13 fare, but unfortunately, that’s where the non-similarities end. The first act of the film introduces Cassie Sullivan (Chloë Grace…

Movie Review: Jersey Boys (2014)

A movie musical based on a stage musical built on pre-existing music certainly has some of its work done for it right from the point of cinematic conception, but even with such a head start, Clint Eastwood still applies enough tender, heartfelt identity to his adaptation, Jersey Boys, to make the screen version a touching…

Movie Review: Dark Shadows (2012)

Ah, hell, it’s really just sad because it results in one of the least favorably-rated Tim Burton-Johnny Depp collaborations…

Movie Trailer: Dark Shadows (2012)

There is but two guarantees in the movie business and both deal with Johnny Depp. One, he can always be counted on to play “interesting” characters. Two, he is attached to the hip of Tim Burton. Both of these certainties are in play in the Gothic-themed horror flick Dark Shadows. Based on a 1960’s cult…

Movie Review: The Rum Diary (2011)

Hunter S. Thompson was an acclaimed author and journalist, though as memorable as his literature is, he also has a legacy for his lifelong love of alcohol, mescaline, LSD, and cocaine. And on February 20, 2005, when the drugs stopped supplying happiness, he shot himself to death. The suicide note read: “No More Games. No…

Movie Trailer: The Rum Diary (2011)

Johnny Depp must be a kindred spirit to Hunter S. Thompson (as well as Tim Burton), as he is starring in his third Thompson written and/or inspired movie. The Rum Diary, for which the first trailer was released, has him playing a slightly off center journalist who moves to Puerto Rico to start afresh. While…
