Movie Review: Bridge of Spies (2015)

It’s nice to see a film version of an historical incident that that this author had no idea about. As a student of history, I’ve always prided myself on knowing as much as I could on as many subjects in this category as possible; and, like “Argo” (which also featured a classified backdrop) I found…

Movie Review: Woman in Gold (2015)

During World War II, the Nazis plundered an estimated 750,000 artworks from European countries including priceless paintings by Van Gogh, Degas, Vermeer, and Michelangelo. Though many paintings and other significant cultural artifacts were recovered by the “Monuments Men,” many were destroyed or auctioned off at extremely low prices.

The success of David Dobkin’s (“Wedding Crashers”) The Judge lies in its ability to sound just like every other story in which a successful prodigal son returns from “the big city” in the midst of personal turmoil to attend a parent’s funeral (“Elizabethtown,” “Garden State,” etc.) when summarized aloud, but play out on screen as…

Movie Trailer: The Woman in Black (2012)

Yes, Daniel Radcliffe can act in something other than a movie with Harry Potter in the title. You can see for yourself in the second teaser trailer for his latest, The Woman in Black. He portrays an English (of course!) lawyer who, upon arriving at a remote village, stumbles on a female ghost with vengeance…

Movie Review: The Change-Up (2011)

Let’s cut to the chase — Olivia Wilde is a beautifully packaged woman and plays a part in many man’s fantasies. Even mine on occasion. But if you were hoping to see her naked in The Change-Up, you won’t (before she became a hot Hollywood commodity, she delivered the goods in “Alpha Dog”). There is…
