Movie Review: ‘Crimson Peak’ Starring Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain

Posted: October 16, 2015 at 7:05 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Crimson Peak, the latest offering from Guillermo del Toro, is a beautifully made film. It’s dark, it’s gothic and it’s bloody. However, the one big problem the film has is it’s not scary. For a film that is being billed as a horror movie, Crimson Peak comes off more as a tragic love story – […]

126: ‘Pan’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund

Posted: October 14, 2015 at 1:54 pm   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

Pan /pan/: verb 1. (informal) To criticize (someone or something) severely. I don’t care if your movie is about a flying boy. When you name your movie Pan you’re pretty much inviting derision. When you make a crappy movie about a flying boy…well, even more so. Bad effects, bad screenplay, bad acting…it’s veritable cornucopia of […]

‘Heathers The Musical’ Opens New Line Theatre’s 25th Season With Serious Laughs

Posted: October 8, 2015 at 7:38 am   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, Local

I’d like to say that I was surprised by just how amazing New Line Theatre‘s opening show of their 25th season was. But I can’t. Because honestly, at this point, what else did I expect? Is it a surprise when show after show, year after year, Scott Miller finds another musical that failed on or […]

Posted: October 1, 2015 at 12:26 pm   /   Film, Local

It’s hard for me to find anything good to say about The Green Inferno, Eli Roth’s latest offering for horror fans. In fact, the best thing I can say about the film is that I loved the trailer for Creed. Roth claims this film is his ode to “Cannibal Holocaust,” a 1980 horror film which […]
