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: The Martian (2015)

It isn’t often that the landscape of a motion picture becomes as integral as the acting, writing or direction, but in the newest Ridley Scott (“Prometheus”) outer space adventure, The Martian, the planet’s crimson hues, frozen nights and horrifying sand/dust storms bring the story of an explorer stranded there with little help of survival to…

Movie Review: The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015)

“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” was a television series that ran from 1964 to 1968. It was actually misnamed because it concerned TWO men — an American, Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn, Oscar-nominated for “The Young Philadelphians”) and a Soviet, Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum, “A Night to Remember”) — who worked for an espionage organization called “U.N.C.L.E.”…

Movie Trailer: Suicide Squad (2016)

Even bad guys can be “good.” And a lot of them can do more “good.” Or so that’s the thought a clandestine government agency has and why they dreamed up putting together a team of supervillains to do their bidding. What precisely they’ll be doing in the upcoming Suicide Squad isn’t yet known but it…

Movie Review: Spy (2015)

After such critical bombs and/or not very good comedies as “The Hangover Part III,” “Tammy” and “Identity Theft,” there’s finally a Melissa McCarthy vehicle we can smile and laugh at — intentionally. Unfortunately, her latest turn in the new Paul Feig (“Bridesmaids,” “The Heat”) directed film, Spy, as an unprepared, mousy analyst/secret agent, loses those…

Movie Trailer: The LEGO Movie (2014)

They’ve made a movie about every other toy in creation so why not everyone’s favorite building blocks, LEGO? Well today Warner Bros. put that to rest with their trailer for The LEGO Movie. Starring every superhero and lovable character imaginable, the family-friendly movie follows a typical smiley figure named Emmet (Chris Pratt) as he bumbles…

Movie Review: Gravity (2013)

Gravity, Alfonso Cuarón’s explosive, white-knuckle sci-fi instant classic is a wonder to behold, with devastatingly realistic effects as a backdrop to a terrifying, compelling story and terrific work by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. It is both a concrete what-if story and a mesmerizing existential mindbender. The U.S Space Shuttle Explorer is docked at the…
