The Girl On The Train (Review)

It’s October. Award season is heating up. So of course we have a buzzy adaptation of pulpy novel with the word “Girl” in the title. But don’t compare it to Gone Girl! Unfortunately, there won’t be much of that to follow. David Fincher’s 2014 adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl was a cracking thriller with unexpected twists and became a surprising indictment of celebrity media culture. The Girl On The Train has no...

Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla)

“History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man.” -Blue Oyster Cult, “Godzilla” (1977)   In the opening moments of Godzilla Resurgence (aka Shin Godzilla), an underwater event causes a the Tokyo-Bay sewage line to be destroyed, followed by rushed, hushed meetings among the Tokyo elite. Flights are grounded, evacuations are organized. The sequence is crisp and has the gravitas of a classy disaster movie. But...

Mr. Church (Review)

What value is put on an emotional response? I suppose it depends on the viewer and their level of cynicism. Go to Rotten Tomatoes and check out the critical rating of Bruce Beresford’s drama Mr. Church. The general consensus is that the decades-spanning story of a devoted cook and his magical effects on a sad family was loaded with racial tropes, cliches and predictable tear jerking. If we’re being cynical and checking off...

Max Rose (Review)

Sometimes you can sum up a movie’s existence to it being another chapter in a franchise.  Other times, it is a passion project willed into existence from a filmmaker who clearly has something to say. A movie like Max Rose is a beguiling little creature because you cannot accuse it of being cynical, nor can you say that it was made with anything but love. However, it’s impossible to watch the film and consider the powerful...

Ghostbusters (Review)

I’m not going to break down the plot of Ghostbusters in this review. We’ve all seen the original so many times, we can recite it. If you’re hate-reading this review looking for justification for the past year of your life that you’ve spent actively whinging all over Facebook about how badly this “reboot” is going to suck, well, I’m not gonna let you down. If you don’t think this Ghostbusters is going to be your Ghostbusters, you’re...

West of Her (Review)

West of Her unfolds like a dream. Writer-director Ethan Warren’s graceful two-hander pairs a nervous loner with no human footprint with a mysterious woman on a unique journey. They both “work” for someone or something distributing intricate tiles with inspirational quotes. The tiles are small enough to carry and assemble, but large enough to be noticed once permanently adhered to a sidewalk, street or parking lot. What it all means is...

Beacon Point (Review)

Beacon Point is a surprising indie horror gem about a hike in the woods that goes bad. There are hidden revelations, an evil entity, gory murders and a fetching heroine. We’ve seen it all before, which is why Eric Blue’s film is refreshing in its ability to engage early and sidestep the obvious beats. A group of randomly-assembled hikers on the Appalachian Trail become lost. Zoe (Rae Olivier) has a very personal reason for the trip....

The Bandit (Review)

Jesse Moss’ feature documentary The Bandit tells a number of stories, the most obvious being the story of how a stuntman persuaded execs at Universal Studios to give him $5 million to make a trucker comedy when he’d never written or directed before. But it’s also the story of wild ambition, unchecked ego and the eternal friendship between two men so similar, they became lifelong mates. This is the story of Hal Needham and mega-star...

The Trials of Jimmy Rose (Review)

  Just stare into the face on the cover of this British DVD set and you know that Ray Winstone, in order to play titular Jimmy Rose, knows what a long-term convict should look like on the day of his release from prison. Hey, Ray himself went through some personal hells as a professional boxer before he became an actor, winning as many as 80 slam-wham medals and awards for the British Empire. And wasn’t it fitting that his first...
