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...

Movie Review: The Judge

Movie Review: The Judge

I haven’t seen a recently released movie quite as good as “The Judge” in a very long time. The combined star power of Robert Downey, Jr., and Robert Duvall create not just a memorable drama, but a riveting story of a family that has fallen apart because of the distance between Downey’s Hank Palmer and Duvall’s Judge Joseph Palmer. Vincent D’Onofrio as Glen Palmer and Billy Bob Thornton as prosecuting attorney Dwight Dickham also add crucial supporting actor roles that act as hinges for RDJ and Duvall to swing on. And boy, do Downey and Duvall know how to act with and against each other! Hank Palmer, a...

Movie Review: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Movie Review: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is the sequel to Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, and carries a lot over from the first film. Both Dawn, and Rise are the newly rebooted origin of the 60’s Sci-Fi franchise Planet Of The Apes. Despite the long history of the series, and the extremely long titles the film can easily stand on it’s own without the other films. There are a startling amount of characters that return in this film but their relationship with Caesar (the titular ape) can be easily surmised through the films excellent use of world building. The world of Dawn is truly outstanding. There are small elements hidden within scenes...

Movie Review: This Is Where I Leave You

Movie Review: This Is Where I Leave You

Shaun Levy’s latest drama-comedy offering comes in the form of the oddly named This is Where I Leave You consisting of a stellar cast and an interesting premise, this film has all the ingredients for a touching and uplifting comedy drama but falls short in delivering any kind of emotional blow, despite its constant attempts. Jason Bateman plays Judd, who shortly after discovering his wife in bed with his boss learns that his father has died. He travels home to be with his sister Wendy (Tina Fey), youngest brother Philip (Adam Driver), older brother Paul (Corey Stoll) and mother Hillary (Jane Fonda) where they have to honor the Jewish...

Movie Review: Draft Day

Movie Review: Draft Day

Regarding the movie “Draft Day, a lot of the action, with regards to football, takes place off the field. The wheeling and dealing and high stakes decisions made by coaches, team investors and general managers is enough to induce some pretty serious stress, or at the very least, a lot of sleepless nights. I’ve watched football with my older brothers, but don’t profess to know a whole lot on the subject. What I do know is that there’s a lot of money to be made and if you have some pretty talented quarterbacks or linebackers, then that’s half the battle. Not to mention the monetary value and worldwide prestige that being on a...

Movie Review: Godzilla

Movie Review: Godzilla

Let’s face it, when we heard that Godzilla was being remade again we all released a great big eye-rolling sigh of despair. Despite the following it has garnered from its deepest, darkest fans who revel in its comic books, TV shows and low budget movies of time gone by, Hollywood has continually proved that by throwing wads of cash at a poorly written script won’t exactly create a historic piece of cinematic excellence. Until they allow Gareth Edwards to take the helm that is. You know the story, it’s about as formulaic as you can get when it comes to monster pics so if you don’t know it I am sure you could guess it. That is not...

Movie Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Movie Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men as a franchise has been hit or miss over the last fifteen (wow fifteen?) years. The first trilogy of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine dominated films had at least two good movies, the follow up Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine film, X-Men Origins: Wolverine was all around mediocre. After that the studio decided to take a break from Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in order to center the film on the much more interesting characters of Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: First Class. X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, fighting for the future with tag-alongs from all the other movies against the Sentinels; robots...
