Rating: R Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Margaret Qualley, Julia Butters Writer: Quentin Tarantino Director: Quentin Tarantino Distributor: Sony/Columbia Release Date: July 26, 2019 Watching ONCE UPON A TIME … IN HOLLYWOOD, it’s easy to understand why writer/director Quentin Tarantino made the film. The 1969 setting gives Tarantino not only permission but a mandate to recreate the look and pop culture of the times. Since Tarantino is a filmmaker who loves his MANNIX and TV cigarette commercials, he’s absolutely in his element, and there’s a contact high from the sense of fun with this. Tarantino has […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN

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.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, Chris Pine Writer: Nissar Modi, based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien Director: Craig Zobel Distributor: Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions Release Date: August 28, 2015 Based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien, Z FOR ZACHARIAH is a different kind of post-apocalyptic film. There are wastelands we glimpse from afar, but we’re not trapped in them. Likewise, there are no bands of marauders seeking oil, water, slaves or food. Instead, we are in a verdant valley that has somehow been untouched by what our heroine Ann (Margot Robbie) refers to as “the mistake,” which […]Read On »

Movie Review: FOCUS

FOCUS | © 2015 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro, Adrian Martinez, Gerald McRaney, Brennan Brown, BD Wong Writers: Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Directors: Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: February 27, 2015 FOCUS begins in a way that primes us to expect one sort of movie, only to deliver another. Given that bait and switch and general con artistry is the business of its protagonist Nicky (Will Smith), this isn’t inappropriate, but it’s still somewhere between a little disconcerting and really disappointing, depending on how much one values certain elements. There are plenty of plot […]Read On »

Stars: Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie, Michael Mosley, Karine Vanasse, Mike Vogel, Kelli Garner Writer: Jack Orman Director: Thomas Schlamme Network: ABC, Sundays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: September 25, 2011 To say that ABC’s new series PAN AM is better than the network’s remake of CHARLIE’S ANGELS or NBC’s THE PLAYBOY CLUB is not necessarily high praise. However, PAN AM at least has a sense of real fun and genuine nostalgia for an era when flying was fun and a job that took somebody around the world for free seemed truly adventurous. Let us remember that back in 1960, the […]Read On »
