Movie Review: Coming Through the Rye (2015)

There exists no alternative in critiquing James Steven Sadwith’s Coming Through the Rye without first discussing the novel which both its title and story derives from. Personally speaking, I never finished reading The Catcher in the Rye. Despite the national uproar that the novel stirred by its addition to school curriculums in the United States,…

Movie Review: The Vessel (2016)

It’s tough to make a religious film in 2016. Not that they aren’t produced anymore, far from it, but that their demographic continues to diminish. An increasingly secularized temperament in the world today means the topic of religion or spirituality in cinema becomes discussed in ever more derisive ways. For audiences, it was difficult to…

Movie Review: Morris from America (2016)

It’s tough being the new kid in school. You don’t know anyone around you or even if you will ever make any friends. There are so many circumstances that can make an experience like this unsettling.

Ben (Viggo Mortensen, “A Dangerous Method”) and Leslie (Trin Miller, “The Invoking”) sought for this kind of kings out of their kin: Plato’s…

Movie Review: Where to Invade Next (2015)

If you are at all interested in six weeks of paid vacation, an extra month’s salary and a two-hour lunch break, you just might have to go to Italy to find it. Filmmaker Michael Moore (“Capitalism: A Love Story,” “Sicko”), a welcome voice for sanity, returns to the big screen in his first film in…

Movie Review: Inside Out (2015)

Not since 2009’s “Up” has Pixar Animation Studios/Walt Disney Pictures fashioned a clever, emotional, family-friendly film that could be embraced by children and adults alike; one that has not only a heart and brain, but a conscience, as well. After commercially-successful and Oscar-winning — but bland and unfulfilling — features such as “Brave” and “Big…
