Rating: R Stars: Alexander Skarsgard, Michael Pena, Tessa Thompson, Theo James Writer: John Michael McDonagh Director: John Michael McDonagh Distributor: Saban Films Release Date (theatrical and on demand): February 3, 2017 Apart from the fact that people have mobile phones and flat screen TVs, WAR ON EVERYONE could just about be set and have been made in the 1970s. It is written and directed by John Michael McDonagh, who also did the police black comedy THE GUARD and the (unseen by this reviewer) drama CALVARY.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Alexander Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, Christoph Waltz Writers: Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer, story by Craig Brewer and Adam Cozad, based on the TARZAN stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs Director: David Yates Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: July 1, 2016 THE LEGEND OF TARZAN is a title that is at once helpful (this will be a movie about Tarzan) and misleading. Between all of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ stories about the Lord of the Jungle and the various films, cartoons and TV series about the character, using a “The” seems a bit overly authoritative.

Rating: R Stars: Bel Powley, Alexander Skarsgard, Christopher Meloni, Kristen Wiig Writer: Marielle Heller, based on the book by Phoebe Gloeckner Director: Marielle Heller Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: August 7, 2015 It’s easy to imagine that THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL. Those who find it true to their own experience, metaphorically (and possibly though not necessarily literally), are likely to love it. Those whose teen years went in completely other directions may still be intrigued, but could equally be disbelieving, alienated and/or bored. For those open to its appeal, THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL is full […]Read On »
