WESTWORLD key art | ©2016 HBO

The 1973 cult hit WESTWORLD, based on Michael Crichton’s novel, centers around an immersive amusement park where customers can play at being gunslingers among lifelike androids. Naturally, something goes wrong. Now WESTWORLD has been reinvented by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy Nolan for HBO, which is now running the first season on Sunday nights. The new WESTWORLD still takes place in a very realistic recreated Old West, where profoundly humanlike androids do whatever the guests want. There are indeed glitches. But this WESTWORLD, instead of jumping into the “technology gone wrong, must escape” scenario, instead asks what all of the […]Read On »

Movie Review: ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE | © 2014 Sony Pictures Classics

Rating: R Stars: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, Mia Wasikowska, Jeffrey Wright Writer: Jim Jarmusch Director: Jim Jarmusch Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: April 11, 2014 The notion of watching Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston play characters who are besotted with one another will be enough to get quite a few people into the movie theatre, and those who come for that reason won’t be disappointed by the actors. However, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is not only a love story but also a vampire film. Its narrative style suggests that writer/director Jim Jarmusch hasn’t turned on […]Read On »

SOURCE CODE movie poster | ©2011 Summit Entertainment

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright Writer: Ben Ripley Director: Duncan Jones Distributor: Summit Entertainment Release Date: April 1, 2011 SOURCE CODE is one of those movies with a TERMINATOR-like time paradox that causes audiences to leave the theater with furrowed brows. However, the movie comes by its twists honestly, paying off the things it sets up and vice-versa, so that everything is neatly and briskly addressed. Better, director Duncan Jones and writer Ben Ripley let us understand early on what’s happening but keep us guessing throughout as to exactly where this is going and […]Read On »
