Rating: R Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Diane Lane, Djimon Hounsou, Jason Clarke, Jeremy Strong, Rafael Sayegh Writer: Steven Knight Director: Steven Knight Distributor: Aviron Pictures Release Date: January 25, 2019 SERENITY, the new movie that is absolutely not to be confused with Joss Whedon’s 2005 science-fiction drama, starts out as what feels like a heartfelt modern homage to the film noir of yore.

Rating: PG Stars: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen Writer: Linda Woolverton, based on the books by Lewis Carroll Director: James Bobin Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: May 27, 2016 It’s not at all necessary to have seen 2010’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND to follow what’s happening in ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. It’s clear enough that Alice (Mia Wasikowska), now a young sea captain in the 1800s by virtue of having inherited her father’s ship, has had some pretty astounding adventures both in Wonderland and in this world.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Mackenzie Foy Writers: Jonathan Nolan & Christopher Nolan Director: Christopher Nolan Distributor: Paramount Release Date: November 7, 2014 The term “hard science fiction” means that the subject matter involves actual science, rather than the type of science fiction like, say, STARGATE, where the science only exists to get characters from here to there. INTERSTELLAR is a melding of hard science fiction, interpersonal drama, big action sequences and big ideas. The screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and director Christopher Nolan goes for epic scope, with the fate of both […]Read On »

CD Review: LES MISERABLES soundtrack

LES MISERABLES soundtrack | ©2012 Universal Music

Even when musicals deal with less savory subjects like dueling New York gangs or starving English orphans, there’s always a romantic layer of production polish to give our delicate sensibilities a comfort zone from the muck and grime of real life, but by immersing viewers in a sewer of excrement along with its lovestruck duets, LES MISERABLES shouts aloud that it’s a stage-to-screen game changer. There’s an unheard level of primal scream singing here that throws us into the gutter along with Victor Hugo’s period Parisians, who sing about the lack of justice (or the psychotic belief in it) for […]Read On »
