    Oblivion (**½)

    Standing all by itself on the movie release calendar, Oblivion has a lot riding on it. For starters, the film predates After Earth, another science fiction film coming out in May 2013, dealing with two people stranded on a post-apocalyptic Earth long after mankind has escaped an uninhabitable home planet. After another...

    Weekend Openings: 4/19/2013

    Shrouding Earth’s future in mystery, supplying Tom Cruise as the hero, and branding the adventure with a great title are all sure-fire ways to generate box-office buzz for Oblivion.  Tom Cruise’s latest thriller, this of the stylistic sci-fi variety, from TRON: Legacy (2010) director, Joseph Kosinski, pretty much has this weekend at...

    To the Wonder (*½)

    It’s no secret that Terrence Malick is a filmmaker who isn’t for everyone, but up until now it’s always seemed like his movies have at least been for someone. With To the Wonder however, this seems like the type of film he made for him and him alone, resulting in absolutely no...

    Trailer for ‘Oblivion’ starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman arrives!

    It’s rare that we hear at the staff get surprised by a film existence, but I had no idea this movie even existed. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the trailer for Oblivion is so good it’s now on my radar as one of next spring’s must see films. The sci-fi...

    BFI London Film Festival – DAY 6

    After a couple of days away from the festival (unfortunately the day job can’t be completely ignored!) and a disastrous experience courtesy of the London transport system (missing yesterday’s Argo screening due to a cancelled train has to be the low point of my year so far), I was finally back to...

    Seven Psychopaths (***½)

    Seven Psychopaths is a movie about…well I’m still processing the film and its many interpretations.  On the surface it’s just a black comedy about crazy people acting crazy telling crazy stories. But more than that, Martin McDonagh’s film is an exploration of screenwriting and a bristling take down (send up?) of male dominated...

    Photographic evidence that Ben Affleck is still in ‘To the Wonder’!

    The habit that Terrence Malick has of cutting down the screen time of his A-list actors is almost a joke by now. With his new film ‘To the Wonder’, it appears that Ben Affleck is the latest to join the ever growing list (not to mention all the people who are just...

    Early word paints ‘To the Wonder’ as being just as divisive as ‘The Tree of Life’!

    It’s no secret around these parts that Terrence Malick frustrated me more than he pleased me with ‘The Tree of Life’ last year, which basically has been the way his whole career has gone in my eyes (short of ‘Badlands’, which I love). However, I’ve been looking forward to seeing ‘To the...
