Perspective is a powerful tool. Oftentimes marred by a person’s opinion or emotions, differing perspectives can be deleterious. The inability to maintain the same interpretation of events or words can pit former allies against each other and bring down powerful entities. On the other hand, being able to view the world from another person’s point […]

Angelina Jolie’s “Maleficent” May Have Found Its Sleeping Beauty

Posted: March 9, 2012 at 12:22 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

You can say the fad beginning.  And I don’t like it one bit. Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” made $334 million.  Obviously, that kind of number is going to make studios turn their heads and look.  So now we have our recent fad of fairy tale stories retold.  Currently we have “Grimm” and “Once Upon […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Kung Fu Panda 2

Posted: May 27, 2011 at 12:01 am   /   Film, Local

Kung Fu Panda 2 is a heartfelt and action packed sequel that moves us deeper into the series’ mythology, but seems to double down on stupid non-character based humor that pulls you out of the picture every time. The film picks up shortly after the first with Po and The Furious Five protecting the lands […]

To say the weekend box office this weekend was weak is an understatement.  The weekend’s two new releases were The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Tourist which saw a rating of 50% and 20% on rottentomatoes respectively.  So the question was if the combined star power of Depp and […]

THE TOURIST Movie Review – Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie

Posted: December 11, 2010 at 5:56 pm   /   Film, Local

Imagine a movie, imagine that movie stars two of the hottest commodities in Hollywood and add a sensual, somewhat dark French-thriller plot. If you did that, you would have the trailer for The Tourist, and it would sound like a pretty good movie, right? But then if you take away the words “dark” and “thriller” and […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: The Tourist

Posted: December 10, 2010 at 3:09 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local
