    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...

    Zero Dark Thirty (***½)

    Among the many successful elements of Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal’s new film ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, the thing I feel they should be most proud of is the fact that this movie lingers in your mind the way a good documentary does. Yes, there’s elements of action and thriller moments, but this...

    Now that I’ve seen the likes of ‘Argo’, ‘Lincoln’, and ‘The Sessions’, the film I’m most anticipating now is ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. The new film from Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal would have my interest no matter what the topic, but considering it’s a movie about the hunt for and eventual killing...

    Oscar Circuit: “If I Had a Magic Lamp…”

    Attempting to keep a pulse on the season has presented some challenges as of late for the 2013 Oscars and its predictions.  It can be argued that we don’t have a front runner in any category despite some films having strong showings at festivals. Best Picture has presented real challenges.  Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln finally...

    The Odd Life of Timothy Green (***)

    Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a film full of wonderful, poignant moments that remind us of the importance of family and self-acceptance, but it seldom carries much of a story or the expected element of fantasy. It’s the rare movie that hits you hard with crucial messages that parents...

    The Thing (**½)

    A serviceable prequel to the John Carpenter film of the same name, ‘The Thing’ works best when it resists the urge to fall into being more of a remake than a prequel.  When it’s getting into the origins of the creature that terrorized Kurt Russell and company, it’s a decent yet unremarkable...
