Film Review: Mr. Holmes (★★½)

There’s something instantly intriguing about the idea of Sherlock Holmes in his retirement years. A mind that sharp, what would it do without cases to solve? Throw in the fact that Ian McKellen would be playing Holmes during this final stage of his life, not to mention that Bill Condon would be in the director’s […]

TORONTO FILM FESTIVAL: ‘The Fifth Estate’ Stumbles with Audiences

For the past few months I’ve said, “I’m pretty WikiLeaked out.” Earlier this year, Focus Features released the intelligent, although a bit sloppy, recount of the WikiLeaks phenomenon in We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks.  We’ve seen this real story unfold for years now in the media via CNN and the Today Show.  Julian Assange […]

Hyde Park on Hudson (***)

Perhaps no film this year has been easier to make fun of in advance of its release than ‘Hyde Park on Hudson’. I know I had a few silly names for it earlier in 2012 when comparing it to something like ‘My Week with Marilyn’, but go figure…I prefer this film to that one. When […]
