SERENITY movie poster | ©2019 Aviron Pictures

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. Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey) – an assumed name, natch – is scraping out a living as a charter fishing boat captain. Baker currently lives on Plymouth, a picturesque island, apparently somewhere off the Florida coast, where […]Read On »

Release Date: May 12, 2017 On the one hand, there’s a protagonist called Arthur who pulls a magical sword out of a stone in medieval Britain, so the storytellers have pretty much got to acknowledge this is indeed a tale of Arthur and Excalibur. On the other hand, Mordred is a mage who […]Read On »

THE LEGEND OF TARZAN movie poster | ©2016 Warner Bros.

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.

Movie Review: THE VATICAN TAPES

THE VATICAN TAPES | © 2015 Lionsgate

Rating: R Stars: Olivia Dudley, Michael Pena, Kathleen Robertson, Djimon Hounsou, Dougray Scott, John Patrick Amedori, Peter Andersson Writer: Christopher Borrelli, story by Chris Morgan and Christopher Borrelli Director: Mark Neveldine Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: July 24, 2015 Exorcism films run the gamut. At the high end, there’s the William Peter Blatty/William Friedkin 1973 classic THE EXORCIST and more financially modest but tremendously effective efforts like THE LAST EXORCISM. At the low end is some truly astonishing schlock. THE VATICAN TAPES is well-made enough to stay out of the latter category, but as an exorcism horror film – or any […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Dwayne Johnson, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou Writer: Chris Morgan, based on characters created by Gary Scott Thompson Director: James Wan Distributor: Universal Release Date: April 3, 2015 Fair warning, just because this is not what one expects from a FAST & FURIOUS film: FURIOUS 7 ends with a thorough gut-punch that has nothing to do with what happens in the film. As is widely known, Paul Walker, who plays FAST & FURIOUS series stalwart Brian O’Conner, died in […]Read On »

The first […]Read On »
