    Film Review: Rob Reiner’s ‘Shock and Awe’ Has Righteous Anger But No Form

    Without question, filmmaker Rob Reiner has his heart in the right place. The story of the Knight Ridder journalists who pursued the truth about the War in Iraq is one worth telling. Even in today’s climate where anger is at peak form, it’s prudent to remember the lies of a past President and his administration. […] More

    Historical Circuit: ‘JFK’ Remains Oliver Stone’s Crowning Directorial Achievement

    ACCA 1991: An historically questionable paranoid thriller about the assassination of a President that runs over three hours, there’s no reason why “JFK” should work.

    Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’ begins to show diminishing returns

    I completely understand why the Bourne franchise needs star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass. Anyone who saw The Bourne Legacy clearly noticed what was lacking. At the same time though, I’m not sure why Damon and Greengrass need this franchise anymore. Jason Bourne is a serviceable enough action film for the most part, but it’s […] More

    Film Review: Criminal (★½)

    “Convoluted” doesn’t even begin to describe Ariel Vroman’s Criminal, a preposterous anti-terror thriller that wastes its tremendous cast on a morally bankrupt script. Screenwriters Douglas Cook and David Weisberg take their political stance on incarceration sans rehabilitation and the death penalty – views nobody was challenging in the first place — to such an extreme […] More
