By | January 23rd, 2018|Action & Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Epic & Historical, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Musicals, Romance, Science Fiction, Thriller, War|0 Comments

In one of the more entertaining Oscar nomination ceremonies in recent memory, Andy Serkis and Tiffany Haddish announced the nominations for the 90th Annual OSCARS this morning from California. THE SHAPE OF WATER lead with 13 nominations. By my calculation, there were a few flubs, snubs, & surprises: --Spielberg was snubbed as Best Director for [...]

By | December 23rd, 2017|Action & Adventure, Drama, Epic & Historical, Family, Fantasy, Horror, Kids, Movies, Musicals, Romance, Science Fiction, Thriller, Trailers|0 Comments

They didn't make my Five Fave Films of 2017 so far, nor are they all the Boston area Film Critics choices, but here’s another batch of films, like cookies for the holidays-- yummy & crummy; some to be savored, some to be consumed guiltily in the dark, and some cookies, well, should be tossed.  [...]

It happened this weekend: The BOSTON SOCIETY OF FILM CRITICS (of which I am a veteran member) met for the 37th time and voted Paul Thomas Anderson's PHANTOM THREAD (which a significant number of critics have not yet seen) starring Daniel Day-Lewis in his ostensible farewell performance as a fictional couturier, the BEST FILM [...]

A few more SCREEN GRABS in the dog days of summer--and none of the following are dogs: DUNKIRK: If you haven't already, see this masterful and intimate experience of the grueling WWII battle when the Nazis had 400,000 Allied troops-- British, French, and Belgian--trapped on the beach at Dunkirk but they never surrendered; [...]

ODDS & END OF YEAR MOVIES: PATRIOTS DAY/LA LA LAND/ROGUE ONE

By | December 30th, 2016|Action & Adventure, Drama, Family, Movies, Musicals, Romance|2 Comments

PATRIOTS DAY--Pointless. If you lived through the Boston Marathon bombings, nothing compares. For all its good intentions and attempts at verisimilitude, this film adds nothing and mutes the impact of that tragic week in Boston's history. It also traffics in some pretty annoying cliches: Boston cops are, apparently, the most foul-mouthed in the country; and only the same roster of actors [...]

MOVIE: FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS

By | August 15th, 2016|Comedy, Drama, Movies, Musicals, Romance|2 Comments

Hold onto your hats-- and your eardrums-- and prepare to laugh yourself silly!! Meryl Streep does it again, this time in a bravura "comedia-tura" performance as a real life "coloratura-challenged" heiress with a passion for grand opera, but no talent: FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS. Stephen Frears once again turns his attention to a strong female character [...]
