Movie Review: Big Stone Gap

Big Stone Gap should be a nice change-up for those longing for a relatable film that serves as looking-glass into the past instead of a big bloated blockbuster with no substance.

Movie Review: Pan

None of the pieces fit together in Pan and if I was the cast, crew and creators behind this bomb. I would be thanking my lucky stars that Fantastic Four came out this year. Otherwise, Pan would be in the running for biggest flop of the year.

99 Homes maybe one of the most gripping, well acted and frustrating films to watch this year and there are no bombs to dismantle or evil supernatural villains to defeat. This film is so intense, because it’s real life.

Movie Review: Pawn Sacrifice

Fischer is shown as a greedy, arrogant and paranoid bigot. Pawn Sacrifice leaves too much on the cutting room floor and creates a figure at the center who’s hard to root for.

Movie Review: Grandma

Lily Tomlin makes a bummer of a film watchable, because of her performance. It’s a one woman show in Grandma.
