MOVIES: THE HUNGER GAMES MOCKINGJAY- PART 2/BROOKLYN

By | November 23rd, 2015|Action & Adventure, Drama, Movies, Romance, Science Fiction|3 Comments

Here's a holiday double feature to be thankful for! The first is a sci-fi adventure franchise that neatly wraps itself up, and the second is a truly artful, old-fashioned romance that may generate a BEST ACTRESS OSCAR nomination! THE HUNGER GAMES:MOCKINGJAY-Part 2 finds Jennifer Lawrence, older and wiser as Katniss Everdeen, the leader of the rebellion in Panem against the cruel President Snow (Donald Sutherland) [...]

I know — it’s summer at the movies, but fear not — there is a way to block those brainless blockbusters with more satisfying alternatives: The 24th annual Woods Hole Film Festival, the oldest on Cape Cod, is set to roll for eight days (July 25 to Aug. 1)! We’re talking more than 100 films showcasing [...]

SUMMER MOVIES: INSIDE OUT/MAGIC MIKE XXL/A LITTLE CHAOS/INFINITELY POLAR BEAR

By | July 10th, 2015|Animation, Comedy, Drama, Family, Kids, Movies, Romance|1 Comment

I’ve seen a raft of films of late—some float, some I’d push overboard. Here’s a list, sink or swim: INSIDE OUT: Disney/Pixar’s latest is among its greatest animated offerings, a 3D computer-generated, comedy/drama. We get to see, literally, inside 11 year-old Riley’s head as her various thoughts and emotions battle for control, with an all-star cast as [...]

By | June 18th, 2015|Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Romance, Science Fiction, Thriller|1 Comment

The blockbusters and the hidden gems are battling it out this summer, and here are the winners and losers according to my calculations. I bit the bullet and saw the number one movie in the country: JURASSIC WORLD-- the JURASSIC PARK sequel that's tearing up the box office, with the biggest opening of all time anywhere, ever, on [...]

MOVIES: ALOHA/SPY

By | June 8th, 2015|Action & Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Movies, Romance|2 Comments

Here are two movies to lighten up a summer day-- ALOHA boasts a first rate cast BRADLEY COOPER, EMMA STONE, and RACHEL McADAMS in an offbeat Hawaiian love triangle written/directed by the quirky Cameron Crowe. At his best he gave us JERRY MAGUIRE and ALMOST FAMOUS and at his worst gave us ZOO. ALOHA falls somewhere [...]

MOVIES: MAD MAX/MADDING CROWDS/MOTHERS & DAUGHTERS

By | May 26th, 2015|Action & Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Movies, Romance, Thriller|1 Comment

I've had women on the brain at the movies lately, and we are out there in significant numbers this season along with the boys of summer. I happened to see two sequels MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and  PITCH PERFECT 2 on the same day and fully expected to tolerate the former and enjoy the latter. Not even close. PITCH "imperfect" began with a crude joke, meandered [...]
