Joy (2015)

There is a breaking point for most people, when the soul-crushing frenzy of everyday life brings them face to face with the inevitability that three things are possible for them: a nervous breakdown, a burst of brilliant inspiration, or the all-consuming threat that the rest of their life may become a den of mediocrity and […]

How to Be Single (2016)

There will come a moment, soon I hope, that Dakota Johnson will find her path to greatness.  As a performer, there is something in her that her contemporaries seem to lack, an understated intelligence, a manner in which you can tell there’s a real person there.  When someone talks to her on screen you can […]

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

One of the things that you start to notice after you’ve taken several of the journeys of Joel and Ethan Coen is that often when you get to the end you’ve sort of arrived back at the beginning. Little headway has been made though a few lessons have been learned. There is a glorious life-goes-on-quality […]

The Ridiculous 6 (2015)

It occurs to me that the worst thing that can ever happen to a comedian is to reach a point at which the general audience moves from “What has happened to you?” to the lower depths of “How do you keep getting work?” Such is the commentary on Adam Sandler whose recent spate of disastrous […]

The Intern (2015)

The Intern is like a stack of pancakes. It’s warm, sweet and leaves you with a touch of a belly ache. You are, no doubt, drawn in by the casting and who could resist a movie that brings together Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway? They’re the best actors of their respective generations, but – […]

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)

It’s been quite a month. First I had the pleasure of seeing Jaws in the theater, then Sharknado 2 with the “Rifftrax Live!” treatment. Add to that Ant-Man, the Minions and finally seeing the new Star Wars trailer in a theater and you might say I’ve had a July to remember. Now it comes to […]

Rifftrax Live! Sharknado 2: The Second One (2015)

It is difficult to describe the irony of the fact that within the span of one week I’ve seen Jaws and Sharknado 2 on the big screen – a better July at the movies does not reside within my recent memory. If those two movies played on a double bill at a drive-in theater this […]

Faith of Our Fathers – a.k.a. To the Wall (2015)

I have no objection to the output of PureFlix Entertainment. Christian movie goers should have their films on the big screen just as much as fans of horror or comedy or action pictures. The writers and directors of the films put out by PureFlix have set out on a mission, to give a forgotten audience […]
