Movie Review: Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance

Movie Review: Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance

I’d be surprised if I found a film that came out in the past few years more divisive than Birdman. Coming out of awards season with the Academy Award for Best Picture amongst several others, a lot of people saw this as Hollywood once again patting itself on the back with another self-congratulatory tale of an actor aspiring to greatness when the world around him tries its damndest to pull him back down to Earth as though he were Icarus flying towards the sun.  Except Icarus’ wings were made of wax and melted when he got too close. And if that metaphor seemed a bit pretentious in your mind, this is going to be a fun ride. This...

Movie Review: The Drop

Movie Review: The Drop

Warning: This review contains some spoilers. Michaël R. Roskam’s 2014 film The Drop features talent that is familiar to HBO viewers: Dennis Lehane (writer: The Wire, Boardwalk Empire), Ann Dowd (True Detective, Olive Kitteridge), and most notably, the late James Gandolfini in his final film role. Adapted by Lehane from his own short story “Animal Rescue,” The Drop stars Tom Hardy as Bob, a soft-spoken man who lives in a rough Brooklyn neighborhood. Tom works as a bartender at Marv’s, and has little in common with the rowdy regulars who patronize the establishment. Bob also has little in common with Marv himself...

Movie Review: The Maze Runner

Movie Review: The Maze Runner

If you’re one who thinks that the sudden free-for-all of young adult novels being turned into movies is a scourge on theaters I doubt this review is going to change your mind. The Maze Runner, as it stands, follows all the same tropes that make these films so scrutinized. Yet it also does just enough differently, and has enough pretty visuals, to make itself stand out from the pack and be worth watching, at least until the third act. But we’ll get to that part later. A young man wakes up in a freight elevator with no memory of who he is or where he’s being taken. He finds himself in a large green field, the Glade,...

Movie Review: Horrible Bosses 2

Movie Review: Horrible Bosses 2

It’s safe to say that Horrible Bosses 2 was not met with best critical response of all time with some critics describing it as a lazy and unfunny sequel to a mediocre first film, however I am going to have to interject here and say that I think Horrible Bosses 2 is brilliant and better than the first one. There are not many films that have me crying with laughter but this one made the list, the first one did not. The story is nonsense, much like the first film, where Kurt, Dale and Nick have decided to become their own bosses by inventing the ‘Shower Buddy’ which they attempt to sell to a rich millionaire who commissions them to make...

Movie Review: The Book of Life

Movie Review: The Book of Life

If you like animated movies that convey a moral message, combined with a lot of pop culture references and current musical numbers, then this is the movie for you. Whimsical and funny animated characters take you back to a magical time of wonder, remembrance and of course, the traditional battle of good versus evil. The characters are voiced by an ensemble cast – Ron Perlman, Channing Tatum, Danny Trejo, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Christina Applegate and Ice Cube. It all begins with a school trip to the museum – a bunch of “detention” students are dropped off and the doorman looks a little anxious. Not to worry, a new museum tour...

Movie Review: John Wick

Movie Review: John Wick

     Movies about a hard-edged hitman who just want to leave their lives behind are a dime a dozen. They’re easy to write, with the action built into the premise. They’re easy to produce, with action that promises an audience to see it. They’re easy to make, but they aren’t easy to make well. The usual excuse is that for dumb action flicks, you shouldn’t have to think because that gets in the way. Sometimes the action can make up for a dumb story, but more often than not a dumb story is only going to amplify the stupidity of the action. Or worse, leave an audience apathetic to its outcome. John Wick does...

Movie Review: Gone Girl

Movie Review: Gone Girl

Adapted from Gillian Flynn’s best-selling suspense novel, Gone Girl is a film sealed with dramatic intensity and highly intellectual storytelling. Its manner of plot development is highly intricate and always has a sense of morbidity lying underneath. Every plot twist is so well crafted that it is never seen coming. That is, of course, unless you’ve read the novel. Gillian Flynn wrote the screenplay herself and has made few changes to the big-screen adaptation, so fans of the novel won’t be surprised by the story. However, they will undoubtedly enjoy watching this mind-consuming and grisly tale come to life. Directed by the iconic...

Movie Review: Get On Up

Movie Review: Get On Up

The thing with biopics is that if you don’t know the person whom the film is about particularly well, you can’t be sure that what you are watching is a legitimate portrayal of their life. This was the case watching Get On Up, and annoyingly, even after watching over two hours documenting his life, I still don’t really feel like I know him, not in the way I had hoped anyway.  If the presence of Octavia Spencer and Viola Davies in the films impressive cast wasn’t enough for you to make the connection, this film was directed by Tate Taylor, who is most famous for directing The Help. Unlike The Help however, the...
