Latest Movie Review
I like musicals. But not this one. It is bad. The singing is off key, the story is slow, the acting is ok but overly dramatic, and Anne Hathaway is unbearable. I would skip this musical if you can. I don't quite see the popularity with this one. Skip it.

Powder Blue Review comment
Saw PB movie last month, it was very interesting for me cuz the great Ray Liotta, J Biel, Forrest Whitaker and UK actor Eddie Redmayne is in it, was even shocked when I first spotted him. Yes, you're right, acting, story and direction are pretty good. Special mention are the scenes between F Whittaker and his club friend, excellent performance, just felt very sad when he decided to end his life.

Les Misérables Review comment
Hello Alex, I simply love Hugh Jackman and Eddie Redmayne in this remake. Eddie will be very busy this summer shooting Trial Chicago 7 with Seth Rogen, Sasha Cohen et al. His pending "The Good Nurse" with Jessica Chastain, I just can't wait for it to be approved. Enjoyed Samantha Banks' voice too, glad she joined Hollywood. Have fun with the new

Thanks for the warm welcome. I just "liked" the FilmCrave facebook page. I’m looking forward to using this site more in the near future.

Based on my personal opinion - yes The Wolverine is better than Elysium. One manages to elevate a one-dimensional character, while the other devolves into a more or less generic sci-fi film.

The Place Beyond the Pines Review comment
This is playing at the Lincoln Grand - I will have to catch it considering the lack of decent films so far this year.
