Movie and Theatre Reviews

Review: ‘Moneyball’

Brad Pitt might not want to make plans Oscar weekend because I’m betting that he’ll be one of the 5 guys named for Best Actor.

Review: ‘Contagion’ Wash Your Hands. Now!

You know, before I begin telling you how much I liked this film about an infectious disease that takes over the globe in a matter of weeks, I have to warn you that you will need to purchase hand sanitizer before you enter the theater.

FringeNYC Review: ‘Flaccid P*nis Seeks V*ginal Dryness’

Let’s get it out of the way — if the title Flaccid Penis Seeks Vaginal Dryness offends you the rest of the play probably will too although, as the play itself points out, it isn’t any racier than what a Google search with a poor choice of words will produce.

FringeNYC Review: ‘Keepers’

I was glad to find out that Keepers, the episodic play that is one of the many performances being showcased during the 15th Annual New York International Fringe Festival, had been run before the 2011 festival because it truly is a play that deserves a wider audience.

Review: ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is not only the best movie of the summer, it’s one of the best movies of the year. As of this writing, it’s definitely in my list of top five films.

Review: “Cowboys and Aliens”

It’s not going to win any awards but the film definitely lives up to its title, delivering not only cowboys and aliens but also Indians, bandits and the best performance Harrison Ford has given in years.

Review: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2”

The film starts right where the first part left off: Voldemort (I’m allowed to say his name out loud now, right?) has the Elder Wand as Harry grieves by the seaside grave of the Dobby the Elf. From the opening credits to the end, the film doesn’t let up.

Movie Review: “Submarine”

Have you ever been home on a rainy Sunday afternoon, flipped on the TV and randomly discovered a movie so good that you’re glad you were stuck on the couch for 2 hours? Submarine is this movie.

Movie Review: “Bridesmaids”

The movie is about friendships and relationships and each character has the chance to add their own bit of realism to their part.

Review: ‘Jane Eyre’

I’ve never read the book Jane Eyre, and I’m betting I never will (I’m still trying to finish the final Harry Potter book). Thankfully, Director Cary Fukunaga has pretty much ensured that I’ll never need to crack open the classic book.

Review: ‘Battle Los Angeles’

First of all, it’s a movie about aliens coming and destrying us. You’re not going in to the theater expecting to see Jane Eyre. Suspend some disbelief!
