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 [...]

Yes it's been a long cold winter -- but let's not focus on that-- how about a movie to pull our focus so that we don't even notice! Which brings me to FOCUS starring one of the world's biggest box office stars WILL SMITH and gorgeous Aussie MARGOT ROBBIE, who left the wolves howling on Wall Street [...]

MOVIES: TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, STILL ALICE, GONE GIRL, WILD

By | February 4th, 2015|Action & Adventure, Drama, Movies, Thriller|4 Comments

Here's my take on the Oscar-nominated best-actresses and the movies they star in,  STILL playing at a theater near you! See them before the Oscars are handed out on 2/22! TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT Marion Cotillard (Best Actress Oscar winner for LA VIE EN ROSE) stars in “Two Days, One Night” (in French with English subtitles), her glamor (but not her luminosity) tamped [...]

MOVIE: BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP

By | October 30th, 2014|Movies, Thriller|1 Comment

I love a good thriller. I love a good mystery. I love to be scared-- at the movies. I love Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth. Together? Heaven! Or hell? I went hoping for the former, and left feeling like I'd fallen from a great height. Kidman and Firth co-star here in the mystery thriller BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP [...]

MOVIE: GONE GIRL

By | October 3rd, 2014|Movies, Thriller|0 Comments

It's the one film I have been dying to see all year. I'm talking GONE GIRL, based on the best seller by Gillian Flynn who also wrote the screenplay.  I love a great thriller, love Ben Affleck and a beautiful woman, in this case a stunning Rosamund Pike who's riveting here. There's 145 minutes to get lost in, and [...]

MOVIES: NOAH/DIVERGENT

By | April 4th, 2014|Action & Adventure, Drama, Epic & Historical, Movies, Science Fiction, Thriller|0 Comments

Two quick reviews before the weekend! NOAH is a crazy film by Darren Aronofsky (THE FOUNTAIN, BLACK SWAN) manifesting the filmmaker's trademark tussle with the unknowable and a feverish attempt to reconcile good and evil, faith and fear, while yoking the otherworldly to concrete reality. Russell Crowe as Noah gets the message to build an [...]

By | January 17th, 2014|Action & Adventure, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Family, Kids, Movies, Musicals, Science Fiction, Thriller|2 Comments

The race is ON! Chris "Thor" Hemsworth helped hammer home the 86th Oscar nominations  with Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs and the results are pretty much as I expected: AMERICAN HUSTLE and GRAVITY tied for most nominations--10 each, followed by 12 YEARS A SLAVE with 9! What I'm delighted about? Matthew McConaughey. It's his year [...]
