Not Very Interesting


A Walk Among The Tombstones is incredibly “meh,” While certainly enjoyable, the movie isn’t very exceptional. People who read my reviews regularly may remember that I made a similar accusation of The Drop, but when compared to “Tombstones” The Drop looks like an avant gard masterpiece.

I think that the closest comparable title to “Tombstones” in recent years is Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners from 2013. they’re both dark brooding noir-infused dramas about investigations involving missing peo...

Lots of Running


I don't like being the person who automatically says: "The book was better". But in this case it's the truth. Not to say that the film is a bad adaptation. It's good in most areas. The mystery stays intact and involving. The action is suspenseful and mildly exciting. The minor plot changes compliment the swift pace nicely. Though, the pace is actually way too swift. We don't get near enough time with the characters. We become less involved with their personal struggle. Having...

Terror and Humor


Kevin Smith’s Tusk originated from a joke; and that becomes explicitly apparent once you’ve actually seen the film. I haven’t listened to the “hilarious” podcast conversation that was the birth place for this film, but I doubt that much has been changed in the translation. Tusk feels very much like it’s being told from the perspective of your friend who has just read this really messed up thing on the internet and wants to tell you all the weirdest parts.

But is that a bad thing? I for on...

Matinee film.


Is it just me or Dylan O'Brien looks a bit like me. The movie is about the main character of the film wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. This movie started off pretty good with the opening scene, but then the ...

Rating of: 3/4

'Frank' is a story of odd musicians each coping with their own mental and emotional hindrances, all while attempting to cooperate long enough to become the great artistic band they strive to be. The group is plagued by this constant trouble, yet they still manage to squeeze out a few heavily unique tunes. Quirky and slightly dark humor coincide to an almost upbeat vibe for the first half. It's enjoyable. The second half ditches the humor almost entirely and borderlines on depressing. It ne...

The storyline held my attention for the whole time without requiring much thought. Another reviewer accurately observed that this movie is like a mash up of "The Hunger Games" and "Lord of the Flies".

Actually Quite Good


The crime genre is one that has had the pleasure of describing some of the greatest movies of all time, but it has described some really lousy ones as well. It’s one of the longer standing film genres in pop culture, so it’s developed a very specific set of clichés over the decades, and many filmmakers fail to deviate from them.

The Drop deviates a little bit, but it doesn’t really stand out all that much. There’s a lot of stuff here that we’ve seen before. And though the similarities to ...

Given the premise for the story there really aren't any twists or turns to help keep your interest. Stuck in a controlled environment world of reality, Jonas begins to realize what he's been missing. You can guess what happens from there if you've watched any dystopia/utopian movies. I found out it was based on a novel, but felt more like a short story without a lot of depth to the characters. Well directed and acted and no glaring holes. Just an underlying current of not having any concerns (f...

The Ultimate Relationship Test


'The One I Love' is a relationship drama told with subtlety. Duplass and Moss give an honest portrayal of a married couple attempting to reconnect. However, narrative tricks are at play. The plot is a constant series of unforeseen turns that add up to one unique and deft mix of genre crossing. Drama, humor, intrigue, emotion, and a bit of suspense (in the finale) circulate with ease. Despite many elements coinciding, the reconnection between the two is always the focus of the story. There...

  The November Man  
The November Man  Add to movie list
Rating of: 2.5/4

Matthew Brady - wrote on 09/12/14

A move that is called November Man, and this movie comes out late September?. The story is about a one-time CIA agent is brought back to the field to take on his protege as he gets involved in a deadly game involving high-level CIA operatives and new president-elect of Russia. The director of this movie (Roger Donaldson) directed such movies like The bank Job and Dante's Peak, and the reason why am bring those movies up is because this director can do so good stuff, but in this movie I think he...
