Movie Review: The Invisible Man (2020)

The Invisible Man has been the cinematic subject of effects extravaganzas (most notably James Whale’s 1933 adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic novel), wartime propaganda (“Invisible Agent”), deadpan comedy (“Memoirs of an Invisible Man”), and psychosexual satire (“Hollow Man”), but rarely has he ever led a straight horror film. This is the hole that filmmaker Leigh…

Movie Review: Zarra’s Law (2014)

From its first scene of dialogue, older Italian men with permanent scowls etched into their world weary faces mumbling to each other in a Brooklyn bar, Zarra’s Law reads like a mob movie made by someone who wants to imitate the genre but doesn’t speak a word of English. For a significant portion of the…

Movie Review: 22 Jump Street (2014)

Channing Tatum has found his calling. Well, he really found it in 2012 during the “21 Jump Street” reboot, where the cardboard cut-out with matinee idol good looks suddenly came alive in front of the camera with an inspired and lovable comic performance.

An English-language update of the 2004 French flick “District 13,” Brick Mansions…

Today, Sony Pictures shows us what they have in mind with the first red-band trailer for 22 Jump Street. Slacker cops, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) have graduated to college! Yeah, not…

Movie Review: Filth (2013)

Irvine Welsh’s provocative novels seem to be a popular choice when it comes to book-to-film adaptations. It’s no surprise when you look at the success of his controversial debut novel “Trainspotting,” realized on screen with Ewan McGregor as lead Renton and directed by Danny Boyle (who has also recently been confirmed to be working on…

Movie Review: InAPPropriate Comedy (2013)

There is a sketch in the comedy InAPPropriate Comedy which features a racist guy hawking free boat rides to Africa to black passerbys. Unexpectedly — or at least I hope it wasn’t planned — one guy takes offense (and rightfully so) and proceeds to beat the living crap out of said white supremacist, continuing even…
