Closer is a rare but welcome example of a cast which is stronger than its material
Movie and Theatre Reviews
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.
Funny, violent, beautiful and quiet. It’s almost perfect.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Autobots. Decepticons. Cybertron. Three words I hope to never hear or type again.
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.
The real treat of the movie is watching McAvoy and Fassbender together. Both of them are so freakin good in their roles that their scenes together make up anything that the movie lacks.
Welcome to The Hangover 2. The Wolf Pack is back and this time they’re even more hungover!
The movie is about friendships and relationships and each character has the chance to add their own bit of realism to their part.
A film like this lives and dies by Hemsworth’s performance and it not only lives, it soars.
Blurgh. Rent the Original.
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!
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.
Free will? Fate? True love? These are all questions that are swirling about in The Adjustment Bureau.
Topher Grace takes on the 80’s and brings Anna Faris and Dan Fogler with him.
