Movie Review: Time to Choose (2015)

Climate change’s main drivers coincide with the main drivers of economic growth. We cannot have both, it seems. We do not get to preserve the Earth if we get to develop our economic prosperity in it. This is a dichotomy in all its height, an ill-conceived binary that produces nothing but contradiction and conflict, a…

Movie Review: Ratchet & Clank (2016)

Ratchet & Clank. Another more than appropriate film title — well, at least the “Clank” part. I have written in the past that movies inspired by video games usually fall into two categories: Bad (“Doom,” “Super Mario Bros.,” “Tomb Raider”) or terrible: (“Mortal Kombat,” “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li,” “Max Payne”).

But I too, can respond to this inquiry in agreement. Director…

Tom Cruise stars as Jack Harper, a soldier sent to the surface to do inspections, partially for a reinhabitation; partially for straggler cleanup. The trailer from Universal Pictures offers a glimpse to the vast, desolate world and to…

Movie Review: WALL-E (2008)

WALL-E is the latest in the line of stellar features from the powerhouse Pixar. It is a romantic story of a small, lonely garbage cleaning robot that finds his purpose is greater than simply gathering trash into piles. Beautiful, charming and with an important message interwoven, WALL-E is flawless. When the people of earth cover…
