Farewell, My Queen, a Historical Tale of Woe

Opulent, majestic, creative and revealing Farewell, My Queen delivers a nicely directed piece of historic French lore. The movie features outstanding performances by Lea Seydoux and Diane Kruger and brilliantly captures the fervor and wickedness surrounding the days before the French Revolution in 1789.  Filming, sets and costumes are exceptional creating an atmosphere that charms yet appalls.

The Watch, A Wacky Comedy

The wacky film The Watch tries hard to entertain, but sinks below average even with its fine cast of witty pros. The film struggles, trying to make the scanty script work by upping the crude and rude level with a lot of off color sight gags, a good measure of dumbness and strong sexual innuendos. The only reason for making the trek to your local theater to see The Watch; only if you just can’t get enough of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill. Read more

The Dark Knight Rises, and Blows You Away

This may be the film that kicks off The Avengers from the all time box-office winner for 2012.  The movie is called The Dark Knight Rises, but loyal fans will refer to the film as Batman and they know that this dark knight has all the power to rise above any comic book hero the industry can throw at him. For me, I’m just one of the crew, a follower hooked since Batman BeginsRead more

Savages, Welcome to Drug Wars

If you are looking for gut wrenching excitement in a movie with a brilliant cast and a creative storyline then choose Savages, this year’s most powerful action filled drama to date.  Intense and intriguing, the film has scenes so extreme that I felt myself gripping the theatre arm rests. If you think the drug wars were crazy in No Country for Old Men, Traffic or even cable’s “Breaking Bad“, they are scuffles compared to this film. Read more

Magic Mike, Naked Chests and ‘Bare’ Storyline

Bare bods and fast music can’t save the movie Magic Mike.  Even if the ladies think they are being entertained, it’s all a facade to cash in on a voyeuristic business that has risen from the sexually charged 90’s.  It may be a take on Tatum’s early teen romp to fill his pockets, but the actor did better with his “Step-up” acting than he does here.
