    Film Review: ‘The Light Between Oceans’ has class but falters the message of love

    A film full of class, and one of the most aesthetically beautiful films to grace the screens this year, Derek Cianfrance’s “The Light Between Oceans” manages some tender and enchanting moments.  With that said, it stumbles and falters in certain executions of character motivation and generic story structure.  Cianfrance has performed remarkably well in his other […] More

    Film Review: ‘Sausage Party’ Brings Raunchy Laughs and an Oscar Worthy Song

    Animation has never been such a fantastic blend of fun and dirty as seen in “Sausage Party” from Sony Pictures.  Created as the movie your perverted older brother made in high school but you can’t help but love him for it, the definitely offensive but enthusiastically rapturous romp is the surprise hit of the summer. Directors […] More

    Film Review: Joy (★★)

    David O. Russell seems to have made a self-indulgent attempt to return to his quirky filmmaking style which garnered him a legion of lovers following “I Heart Huckabees” and “Flirting with Disaster.”  However, it seems he tried to mix his “acclaimed” straight-forward style that has made him a bonafide Oscar favorite with “The Fighter” and “American […] More

    Film Review: The Big Short (★½)

    Adam McKay’s “The Big Short” opens with a narration from Ryan Gosling, already in a similar aesthetic to that of Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” but blended with a delivery that we might have seen on NBC’s “The Office” when it was on television.  As a matter of fact, it injects the sexy […] More

    Film Review: Anomalisa (★★★★)

    There comes a moment in “Anomalisa,” from co-directors Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson, where you stop fighting the need to try to understand the weird yet invigorating story structure, and surrender to all the quirks, charm, and emotional tension its displaying on screen.  Hypnotizing in the words and expressions of its stop-motion characters, Kaufman’s screenplay […] More
