Movie Review: The Legend of Hercules

Movie Review: The Legend of Hercules

2014 has been a great year for movies about Ancient Greece. “300: Rise of an Empire” sailed into theatres this past spring, and we saw not one but two Hercules-inspired movies. We can even throw “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” into the pile as it’s based on Greek myths with a modern twist. While we have historical proof in the writings of Herodotus to back up much of 2006’s “300” and its sequel “300: Rise of an Empire,” we must look to mythology for legends regarding Hercules and his Greek counterpart, Heracles. For well over half my life, I have studied mythology and spent...

Movie Review: Winter’s Tale

Movie Review: Winter’s Tale

I watched this movie while flying down to the Dominican Republic. It was entertaining, if you enjoy historical love stories mixed with a little bit of the supernatural. It stars Colin Farrell (HBO’s True Detective), Jessica Finlay Brown (Downton Abbey), Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connolly and Will Smith. A young immigrant couple’s dreams are dashed forever when they are refused entry into the United States. They are marked with the symbol that means consumption. They know that the only chance their baby son will have to live a good life would be in America and not back home. They place the baby in a tiny little model sailboat, with the...

Movie Review: Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

Movie Review: Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

Destiny, friendship, brotherhood, family, and some awesome Greek mythology – what could be better for a family-friendly Saturday night? If you’re looking for a fun time with the kids, or if you’re like me and an adult who loves mythology, Percy Jackson is a demigod you should start paying attention to. Based on Rick Riordan’s incredibly popular Percy Jackson & The Olympians series, “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” is the second installment of the film franchise. Percy, named after the Greek hero Perseus, is the son of Poseidon and resides at Camp Half Blood, the only place on the planet safe for...

Movie Review: Lone Survivor

Movie Review: Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor is the latest film from Peter Berg, who is most famous for directing the disappointing Battleship and the mediocre Hancock. However, he appears to have found his groove with Lone Survivor and managed to create an intense and thrilling depiction of a failed Navy SEAL mission. With a star-studded cast consisting of Mark Wahlberg, Emile Hirsch, Taylor Kitsch Ben Foster and Eric Bana (among others) Lone Survivor has the tools required to be a hit. Okay, so the story goes a little like this: A team of four US Navy SEALs are sent to Afghanistan to carry out a reconnaissance mission to track and capture Taliban leader Ahmad Shah....

Movie Review: Rush

Movie Review: Rush

If you love high adrenaline racing, gorgeous women, international locales and a healthy dose of competition, than this is the movie for you. Rush is a movie that chronicles the real life racing competition between James Hunt from England and Niki Lauda from Austria. My husband is a race car enthusiast and showed me pictures and footage from the races and I have to say that whoever was in charge of casting the two males leads did a splendid job. Chris Hemsworth brings a cocky swagger to Hunt’s character, while Daniel Bruhl brings a detail oriented and strict work ethic approach to Lauda’s character. The movie starts with a voice over...

Movie Review: Ride Along

Movie Review: Ride Along

The Buddy cop film genre has been around since the sixties, but despite its huge bump in popularity in the 1980’s the genre is still very unchanged. A recent trend in Buddy cop movies is to point out the absurdity that one continuous plot is playing out in film after film and no one bats an eye. Films like Hot Fuzz, 21 Jump Street, and to a lesser extent Copout parodied the buddy cop stereotypes while still being extremely funny. Ride Along takes a very traditional approach than most modern day buddy cop movies, and by traditional I mean it is the most cliché’d buddy cop film I’ve ever seen. If you have never seen a buddy cop film, or...

Movie Review: Riddick

Movie Review: Riddick

The thing you need to understand about Richard B. Riddick is that the man is a survivor. He has stealth, strength and eyes that can see in the dark. You wouldn’t want him as your enemy. Riddick is a lone wolf; always has been. He’s survived on instinct and did things that no human being should’ve done, in order to survive. I’ve been a fan of Vin Diesel’s Riddick character since Pitch Black came out in 2001. Riddick is quite the interesting character; he’s talented in many ways of combat and weaponry, which served him well over the years. He’s got a keen sense of being able to read anyone who crosses his path in order to...

Movie Review: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Movie Review: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Imagination is the driving force behind all art, and yet it is a very difficult process to capture. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is one of the few films that has managed to tap into the human imagination in such an honest heartfelt way. On an initial look The Secret Life of Walter Mitty seems like a film that is a bad idea. It’s a remake of a 1947 film, it’s filled to the brim with product placement, and it’s aggressively earnest. Yet somehow despite all odds this ended up being one of the most enjoyable heartwarming film experiences I’ve had in a long time. The plot of the film is much more modernized and differs vastly from...
