Review: Skyfall

Nov 9, 2012

Other than politics of late, the other conversation-starter is always the release of the latest James Bond film. Everyone has opinions about the best and worst of the entire series, which now encompasses 23 films over the past 50 years. It doesn’t matter if you are staunch supporters of Sean Connery, or Roger Moore, or Pierce Brosnan or any of the others. All Bond fans are ready to sway you to their point of view.

Review: The Master

Sep 28, 2012

Going to movies is like having Forest Gump’s box o’ chocolates… you never know what you’re gonna get.

Sometimes you walk into a low-budget indie film with no known stars, and a fairly goofy concept, and it turns out to be Safety Not Guaranteed, a totally charming and disarming tale that leaves a big smile on your face.

Review: Arbitrage

Sep 14, 2012

More often than not, movies these days are not created, they’re cobbled together like a casserole recipe using parts from other sources. In this instance, take Oliver Stone’s Wall Street, add an episode of Law  & Order… any episode, doesn’t matter from which of the series…drop in a pinch of Bernie Madoff, and blend in a whiff of Pretty Woman, and you have Arbitrage. This new thriller is set against the perilous world of hedge funds and high finance, and is nothing if not topical.

What's New on DVD's?

It never comes as a surprise when the summertime blockbuster and family vacation movie going season comes to a close. You can almost feel that door close behind you. This year, that door closing came earlier than usual.

Review: Killer Joe

Aug 24, 2012

Theoretically speaking, what might you get if you put the collected works of Tennessee Williams, John Waters and Quentin Tarantino in a blender and then ran it through a projector? I’m guessing you would get a film on the order of Killer Joe, the latest film from Oscar-winning director William Friedkin, who gave us The French Connection, The Exorcist, and one of my favorites, The Night They Raided Minsky's.

Review: The Salt of Life

Aug 19, 2012

A few years back, Gianni Di Gregorio made a nice little film called Mid-August Lunch. Now that it’s mid-August again, here comes his follow-up feature, The Salt of Life. It’s not quite as good, but still may provide a nice summertime diversion if you’re looking for something other than the latest blockbuster or a kids movie.

Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Aug 12, 2012

The main problem with all the remakes, retreads, and reboots on movie screens anymore is that, after a while, there’s nothing different that can be done with these films. Last month’s The Amazing Spiderman is a perfect example. Although I haven’t seen it yet, many friends have told me that it was the same story as the first film, just with a different cast. Where’s the joy in that?
