Film Review: Get a Job (★★★)

The trend of long delayed films turning out to be unnecessarily shelved continues with Get a Job. Now, this comedy isn’t a lost masterpiece like Margaret or anything of the sort, but it is an entertaining comedy that manages to remain just as relevant as it would have been, had it made its original 2012 […]

Film Review: Digging for Fire (★★★)

There’s something really pleasurable about watching a new act in a filmmaker’s career. With his new movie Digging for Fire, multi-hyphante Joe Swanberg has fully emerged from his mumblecore beginnings and become an incredibly nimble writer and director. His early works like Hannah Takes the Stairs or Nights and Weekends established his simple aesthetic, but it’s […]

Film Review: Pitch Perfect 2 (★★★)

I’ll admit it…I was one of the few not to be particularly charmed by Pitch Perfect. It wasn’t bad, sure, but nothing special at all. Pitch Perfect 2, however, somehow managed to win me over. Far from perfect (no pun intended), this sequel manages to make the music even catchier, even if the comedy is […]

Film Review: The Last Five Years (★★★)

One of the simplest musicals in the past few years, The Last Five Years also manages to be one of the most effective. This isn’t a particularly great musical in comparison to others we’ve seen lately, but it’s solid and features a lovely turn from Anna Kendrick. She easily outdoes her work in Into the […]

Film Review: The Voices (★★½)

If ever there happened to be a talented actor who should make it his business to stay away from big budget action films, it’s Ryan Reynolds. Despite his good looks and skills in the genre, he just can’t seem to stay away from a disaster. For my money, he’s far better utilized in comedies (even […]

Film Review: Cake (★★★)

Every once in a while, and admittedly not often enough, an actor or actress opens your eyes to talents you weren’t aware they inhabited.  Over the past few decades, I think of performers like Charlize Theron in “Monster” or Halle Berry in “Monster’s Ball” as prime examples.  Joining the elite list is the beautiful and […]

Film Review: Into the Woods (★★★)

Slick, lavish, and imaginatively vibrant, Rob Marshall‘s newest musical adaptation “Into the Woods” hits most of the notes as a thoroughly entertaining experience of the holiday season.  Assembling one the year’s finest casts, Marshall brings his ability to bring each actor to their utmost potential, while keeping composer Stephen Sondheim‘s brilliance intact.  In the end however, […]

STUDIO CIRCUIT: Walt Disney Pictures Going ‘Big’ with ‘Woods’

Last year, Walt Disney Pictures had a slate with a ton of potential. A biopic about their titular founder based off one of the most successful and beloved movie musicals of all time. A billion dollar animated musical phenomenon. A Pixar movie. And a movie with production design by Robert Stromberg. Oh, and The Lone […]
