Movie Review: Steve Jobs

Movie Review: Steve Jobs

Danny Boyle has had an interesting career as a director with the ability to make large sweeping films that take you on a physical journey, to smaller low key films that take you on emotional journeys. Steve Jobs, the director’s latest film, tackles the legacy of the famous Apple CEO, spanning through three separate key notes pivotal to his career. When tackling a biopic you can choose one of two ways to approach it. You can either attempt to capture the person’s entire life or you can focus on a few key moments of his life. The specific focus utilized in this movie, you will find, is both its strength and its weakness. Firstly...

Movie Review: Sisters

Movie Review: Sisters

HBO Saturday night premiere of Sisters debuts Saturday SEPTEMBER 10 at 8:00pm. Actually, I hadn’t seen the trailer for this film when it was first going around. A few TV spots had popped up, but those did not do much to show any points of the story or what was actually going to happen. If I wasn’t convinced to check this film out from the fact it is Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, the trailer certainly convinced me. The “good” daughter Maura (Amy Poehler) finds out that her parents (James Brolin and Dianne Wiest) are interested in selling their home. The same home in which Maura and her sister Kate (Tina Fey), the...

Movie Review: In the Heart of the Sea

Movie Review: In the Heart of the Sea

Back in the early 19th century, whaling was a massive and dangerous industry. Whale oil was a precious commodity, used for oil lamps and soaps. The inherent risks and general hard labor required for expeditions meant that the sailors recruited were usually those who didn’t have many other options or were born into the job. There’s an interesting story to be had in a whaler’s life, and that’s exactly what Herman Melville is looking for when he meets Thomas Nickerson, a man who spent his formative years hunting one particular whale. His story begins with Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth) heading out for one last whaling trip, ensuring...

Movie Review: The Danish Girl

Movie Review: The Danish Girl

Note: the following review is for The Danish Girl premiering on FRIDAY, AUGUST 26 at 9:00pm. A fictionalized account about the true story of Lili Elbe, one of the first known recipients of sex reassignment surgery, this film follows the struggles of a person becoming who they knew they were meant to be. Starring Eddie Redmayne as Einar Wegener and Alicia Vikander as his wife Gerda Gottlieb, the couple work together to help him through the trials of transitioning and becoming Lili. I want to apologize in advance if I make mistakes with pronouns or verbiage. I want to do justice to the film without offending anyone. Because I think this is...
