Dunkirk : Review

A war movie directed by the fantastic and talented Christopher Nolan hits theaters this weekend. The WWII epic stars Tom Hardy, once again with an apparatus around his face, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and pop star Harry Styles is also on board for the ride. The expectations were high going into this offering and that could have affected the overall experience for me. Dunkirk is a very well done film but I found it a bit confusing and even a little slow at times. Read the rest of this entry »

American Valhalla: Review

Take a moment to look back and remember being young, free, and listening to your favorite music over an over until each note was ingrained into your soul. Now you can see as an adult how those same sounds became a part of the fabric of who you are as a person. If you are not able to do this upon reflection and you are not a huge fan of music, art, and thoughtful collaboration resulting in something other than a monetary prize, then this is not the film for you.

Alien: Covenant Review

Ridley Scott and the Alien franchise are wonderful gifts to all horror and sci-fi movie fans. The latest offering and third one of the franchise directed by Scott is titled Alien: Covenant. Its intended as the sequel to the Alien prequel Prometheus. If you are an Alien series enthusiast  then I would recommend seeing it of course. It’s a quality sci-fi action drama that will entertain you and attempt to answer some of the lingering questions from the previous films. If you are going into this new film with no previous Alien experience, or maybe you just the first one, you may wind up a bit confused at times. I have watched all of the films and I was even slightly confused trying to connect all the prequel/sequel stuff. It may be best to enter the theater and just enjoy the ride and not worry too much about making these connections. Read the rest of this entry »

The Lovers: Review

A strong dose of reality and a bit of  intentional exaggeration goes a long way to paint a sad portrait of modern long term relationships in the new film, The Lovers. This movie is also a welcome return to the screen for Debra Winger. Other than a few various appearances over the years her best and most notable work was in the 1980’s. She is raw and believable as an older woman romancing a younger man behind her husbands back. This is pegged as a comedy/drama but I found there to be more sadness than humor.
