Rating of: 4/4

Experience the Disaster

'Deepwater Horizon' is the second collaboration between writer/director Peter Berg and star Wahlberg - the first being the similar true story based film 'Lone Survivor'. As with their previous effort, 'Horizon' utilizes an array of talents across the board to recreate some harrowing moments in visceral fashion. It seems the creative team have somehow upped their game this time, as 'Horizon' is damn near perfect in execution. We are taken along through the events leading up to this disaster f...

Lost Comedic Potential in Weird True Crime Story

'Masterminds' is a comedy dud. It's solid comedy cast and funny sounding premise (based on actual events?!) somehow miss the mark entirely. Director Jared Hess, of Napoleon Dynamite, brings his slow-paced awkward vibe to this material. The obvious first mistake here is that his comedic sensibilities are juxtaposed with that of obvious studio produced, commercially viable material. Many scenes feel out of place with one another in terms of tone. Each of the actors are given many moments to ...

I disagree with those who say this movie isn't worth watching -- it's an important and fascinating story, and a pretty good telling of it, though I could quibble with some of the directorial choices. My main complaint is that the movie itself lacks the tremendous ambition of the title. Quite possibly, the title+concept is the most significant thing about this movie.

High Standard for Animated Comedy

'Storks' is the second animated feature from the newly reformed 'Warner Animation Group', who gave us the surprise hit 'The Lego Movie'. 'Storks' continues that same brand of top-notch animation, voice-work, and hilarious comedy. I didn't know a single thing about this film before I saw it, and I think that complete lack of any expectations propelled my overall enjoyment. What a pleasant surprise! 'Storks's style of animated comedy harkens back to the Chuck Jones era of Looney Tunes. Rapid...

The Adequate Seven

'The Magnificent Seven' is the competent remake of the 60's classic that respects the original, but also doesn't try much new. Really, the only differences between this and the original is the reasonings behind the groups formation, the changes in characters and the added level of on-screen violence. That's pretty much it. What this film lacks over it's counterpart is humanity and empathy. The seven main characters, while portrayed by immensely talented actors, are only memorable for their ...

Classic Screwball Rom-Com Formula Done Well

'Bridget Jones's Baby' is one of many long-term sequels to be released this year and it might just be the best of the bunch. What this sequel gets right, that others got wrong, is the simple fact of staying true to the film(s) before while not making a complete nostalgia driven remake. Many elements (including story structure) are reminiscent of the first 'Bridget Jones', but the way in which this third part continues the title character's story is worth some investment for those who enjoy th...

Still Magnificent a Second Time Around

I'm always wary of any reboots that come along because of how mixed the results have been in the past. But The Magnificent Seven was different. For one, director Antoine Fuqua has proven himself a competent and talented director - especially when teamed with Denzel Washington (and Ethan Hawke for that matter). For another, Fuqua assembled an equally-impressive cast - with Washington and Hawke being joined by Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Haley Bennett, Peter Sarsgaard and two r...

Nicely restrained in tone, to the point of sometimes being a bit boring. A little hagiographic for my tastes, but makes its points clearly and compellingly.

Tears Are Earned

'Mr. Church' sees the return of Eddie Murphy to the screen in a touching drama. Murphy has very rarely dabbled in dramatic roles, but his performance in this film shows that he should do so more often. He slips into this character seamlessly right from the beginning. The whole story is told from the perspective of one girl whom we watch grow into adulthood with Mr. Church as a constant parent figure. The film plays as if it were based off of some writing (almost positively is) due to the ti...

Nostalgic, Modern Rehash

'Blair Witch' is the late sequel to the massively popular/polarizing memorable 'found-footage' hallmark film. After watching this continuation, it's clear that the filmmakers only purpose was to pay tribute to the original. In that regard, you could say they succeeded. This is essentially a beat-for-beat retread of 'The Blair Witch Project' with a modern twist. It's a nostalgia trip for fans done in a way that resembles the more fast paced, constant running/screaming, and loud noise filled ...
