Noah (2014)

Review: Noah

Director Darren Aronofsky's undeniably controversial and polarizing yet richly thematic and grandiose telling of Noah's Ark has its wondrous moments presented in a fairly good and thoroughly watchable first two acts, but is soon burnt to dust in its third act once things get tedious and sluggish and ultimately fail to provide an ounce of emotional resonance. That matter didn't make me dislike the overall film, but it left me a little bit cold and underwhelmed since everything beforehand was pretty darn good. Obviously, Aronofsky added some extra story elements to the material, which thankfully wasn't a bad thing. It's effectively incorporated into what we already know of the story, giving clarity to the film's presentation of its themes. …

Kick-Ass 2 Review comment

So many reviews seem to agree with your view - it just doesn't have that same spark of comedy and violence - getting a big too dark (though, to be fair, the graphic novel was much darker too). I still want to see this, but my expectations have been thoroughly tempered.

Evil Dead Review comment

Great review - I have much more faith in this movie now. And now I know to stay until the real end of the film... groovy.

Oz the Great and Powerful Review comment

After watching the regular version - I have to admit I think the 3D probably works out remarkably well for this film. I don't know if it would have swayed my opinion any more, but it's a film worthy of 3D. I agree with the cast have a lack of energy - one of the main reasons I couldn't rate it any higher than I did. Loved the look of the film, though.

Seven Psychopaths Review comment

While his first film, "In Bruges" was black, fresh, and funny--Martin McDonagh's follow up comedy crime caper is a bit of a misfire. The compellingly named "Seven Psychopaths" feels as though it is trying a little too hard. Notwithstanding, there are some good things about the film, it is essentially a brain-teaser that is ultra black, with a gee-wizz cast and a schlock of set ups that work in varying degrees."Seven Psychopaths", a self-reflexive black comedy where the main punchline is that …

Flight Review comment

Despite an Oscar worthy performance by Denzel Washington, the films too heavy-handed, redundant, and never quite takes full flight. The title of the film is deceiving in that it is more so about the descend (in more ways than one), and the resilience of the human spirit.
For the first half-hour or so, "Flight" keeps us rapt with thrilling action and a troubling moral quandary. You strap yourself in for the next two hours and prepare to give yourself over to the in-flight entertainment. But …

Mama Review comment

"Mama" succeeds in generating some genuine scares and leaving some lingering, creepy images--despite indulging into numerous cliches. It's a well-made horror film that actually contains a story, and delivers the chills and thrills with a solid cast to gloss over the expected bag of tricks. It also tremendously helps to have Guillermo del Toro as an Executive Producer. In the prologue to "Mama," we learn of a shooting at a financial firm after an economic crash. A distraught executive named …

Side Effects Review comment

"Side Effects" begins as if it were a modern-day problem movie, but then transforms into a murder mystery--in which the question is not who did it--but why? It's just one of the jagged turns this movie takes on its road to resolution. The twists are many--changing the lanscape, that it makes it difficult to discuss with people who have yet to see it.
