Movie Review: Bel Canto (2018)

Music has long been known to bring people together irrespective of language barriers, and few situations require people to come together as crucially as those in which our lives are at stake. Based on a real life hostage incident in Peru, Bel Canto (“beautiful song”) was originally a book written by Ann Patchett about this…

Movie Review: Money Monster (2016)

One cannot overlook the Oscar overload of talent tapped to bring in the financial rewards for the tepid on-air monetary hostage drama Money Monster. Acting leads in George Clooney (Academy Award winner for “Syrianna”) and Julia Roberts (Academy Award winner for “Erin Brockovich”) and director Jodie Foster (Academy Award winner for “The Accused” and “The Silence…

Movie Review: Non-Stop (2014)

The gruff male character is sitting in his car on his own, drinking alcohol, looking at a picture of his young daughter, because this shows that he’s haunted by personal tragedies.

Movie Review: Argo (2012)

Everybody still smokes (even on airplanes), shirt collars are enormous,…

In 2008 audiences were wowed by ex-CIA operative Bryan Mills’ (Liam Neeson) skills in “Taken” as he put them to good use rescuing his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) who had been snatched whilst on a holiday in Paris by Albanian gangsters. In Taken 2 it’s now a year or so on and Mills is called…

Movie Trailer #2: Taken 2 (2012)

Rhetorical question, I know, but why would a man take his family to a foreign country where he knows he’s not the most liked guy of the locals? It’s what Liam Neeson does in Taken 2 and as payment for it, he and his wife are kidnapped by the father of the kidnapper Neeson killed…
