Movie Reviews

‘Fury’ speaks to how we mold men

October 22, 2014

There is a review for “Fury” in my head that I will never write. I’ll try to tell you why: “Fury” follows a tank crew pushing into Nazi Germany late in World War II, but this is merely what happens. It’s not what “Fury” is about. I could call... More ›

Undercooked stake — ‘Dracula Untold’

October 15, 2014

The most important factor in telling a story is having a reason to tell it. It can be a small reason -- this year’s “Godzilla” asked a modern horror filmmaker to return the monster to demigod status. It can be a big reason -- “The Monuments Men” addresses... More ›

A study in sociopathy — ‘Gone Girl’

October 8, 2014

“Gone Girl” is the movie you go to in order to have your mind race, and to keep yourself up well past any reasonable bedtime because you’re still thinking about and discussing it. It’s the chill up your spine you feel not when something is lurking... More ›

Denzel commands attention in ‘The Equalizer’

October 1, 2014

An early shot in “The Equalizer” shows a beautiful woman rising from her seat on the bus. She waits to exit, and the camera pans around to reveal Robert McCall’s face. We’d expect any male character... More ›

Ode to the curious — ‘The Maze Runner’

September 24, 2014

When I was younger, almost all my scripts and stories started the same way. A man or woman wakes up somewhere mysterious, not knowing who they were or how they got there. It’s the easiest set-up... More ›

A punishing ‘No Good Deed’

September 17, 2014

Movies are all about expectations. If I’d rented “No Good Deed” straight-to-DVD, having no idea what it was, I still wouldn’t think it’s a good movie but I’d applaud the effort. Seeing it in the theater, however, magnifies all its flaws 30 feet... More ›

Top 10 movies of the fall

September 10, 2014

As the summer ends and we begin shifting toward autumn, we also change movie seasons. Gone for the most part are the glossy superhero blockbusters that ruled the hottest months. In their place will come art films, Oscar bait, and more than a few... More ›

A POV standard — ‘As Above, So Below’

September 3, 2014

Mainstream critics tend to miss the boat when it comes to found footage movies, and they’ve done it again with “As Above, So Below.” You can’t really blame them. Found footage (or POV horror)... More ›

Avoid at all costs — ‘Sin City 2’

August 27, 2014

“Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” would be a lot better if it didn’t seem like a Men’s Rights recruitment ad. Every woman in the film is either manipulating a man, getting beaten, or pining for a man who couldn’t care less about her. Often all three... More ›

Just enough to prop up ‘The Expendables 3’

August 20, 2014

There stood their names, 20 feet tall: Stallone. Li. Statham. Grammer. Snipes. Schwarzenegger … wait. Back up a few. Grammer? Kelsey Grammer? That’s when my hopes for a franchise in its death... More ›

These ‘Ninja Turtles’ are belly up

August 13, 2014

I’m not convinced Megan Fox is a bad actress. I’m not convinced she’s a good one either. She’s never been given much to do aside from scream and run in slow motion. I can’t think of another actor, outside motion capture, who’s spent as much time... More ›

‘Lucy’ survives on Scarlett Johansson alone

August 6, 2014

The big name in all the ads for “Lucy” is Scarlett Johansson, and for good reason. “Lucy” just clobbered Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s brawnier, twice-as-expensive release “Hercules” in theaters... More ›

Polished Edge: A great sci-fi movie with an ‘edge’

June 11, 2014

Recently released, “Edge of Tomorrow” is an impressive flick in the science-fiction/alien-invasion genre. It has only one serious flaw, which I’ll describe later. The story leaps into the... More ›
