Now You See Me (**½)

I can’t quite decide if the magic themed crime thriller Now You See Me is better or worse than it was intended. On the one hand, this is an entertaining heist flick with a stellar cast and a nice sense of pacing and flashy atmosphere. On the other hand, it seems to be covering up […]

The Great Gatsby (**½)

Baz Luhrmann sure knows how to bring the bombast to his take on The Great Gatsby, but in the end he’s just the latest filmmaker to fail in his attempt to bring the classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald to life. Luhrmann, along with co-writer Craig Pearce, relishes in trying to both bring the period […]

That is the underlying message in Dreamwork’s latest animated spectacle, Rise of the Guardians. A visual bedazzlement with 3-D utilized to its absolute best since Avatar, Director Peter Ramsey’s Rise of […]

Chatting with the cast of ‘Bachelorette’!

Early last week I was lucky enough to be invited to another visit to one of the more upscale hotels in New York City for a roundtable interview, this time with some of the cast and the writer/director of the film ‘Bachelorette’. It’s a film I found to be better than I was expecting (my […]

Bachelorette (***)

One way that a comedy can usually be sure to lose me is to have the characters and even the film in general just be mean-spirited.  That’s an issue I’ve had with a some black comedies, but somehow ‘Bachelorette’ manages to avoid my wrath.  The reason?  I actually bought into these characters organically being the […]

Warner Brothers pushes ‘The Great Gatsby’ to 2013!

Big news has dropped today folks. Early on in the year ‘The Great Gatsby’ was thought by just about everyone to be gunning for a whole lot of Oscar love, and it still might, but it’ll have to wait a year. Yes, The Hollywood Reporter writes here that Warner Brothers has moved the 3D film […]

Here’s the Trailer for ‘Bachelorette’!

They say that movies always come in pairs. Examples include ‘Armageddon’ and ‘Deep Impact’ (a highly underrated flick in my eyes), ‘Dante’s Peak’ and ‘Volcano’, and so on. Now you can seemingly add ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘Bachelorette’ to that list. It looks like a very different type of movie (more indie, less overtly funny), and after […]
