Movie Review: ’12 Years a Slave’ Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong’o, and Michael Fassbender

Posted: November 1, 2013 at 8:24 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

It’s hard to pin Best Picture frontrunners at this point in the year.  The end of the year bonanza of films is sure to throw a wrench into the awards plans of some of the superb films of early 2013, but it’s hard to imagine that 12 Years a Slave won’t be in contention. Director […]

But luckily things turned out alright, as the film opened with a $66.4 […]

Movie Review: ‘World War Z’ Starring Brad Pitt

Posted: June 21, 2013 at 9:54 am   /   Featured, Film, Local, Movie Reviews

Vampires, werewolves, zombies. These classic horror subjects, which used to primarily appeal to hardcore fans of the genre, have become mainstream in today’s world of movies and television. Romero’s classic zombie movies used to be the thing of cult classics and horror buffs, but with 28 Days (2000) and Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of […]

Brad Pitt Stars in Adaptation of Max Brooks’ ‘World War Z’ (Review)

Posted: June 21, 2013 at 9:34 am   /   Books, Featured, Local, Movie News

After long delay, I write my first review in months. Competing against a weekend with my favorite superhero Superman and seeing Man of Steel twice last week, “World War Z” was a rough sell in my book. However, I really wanted to see this film as soon as possible. I am a HUGE zombie fan […]

Movie Review: ‘Happy Feet Two’ Starring Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon

Posted: November 18, 2011 at 9:20 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Going into a film like Happy Feet Two, you pretty much know what you can expect. It is not uncommon for sequels to kid’s animated movies to be lackluster in comparison to their predecessors, and in this case that is exactly what this film does. When a movie about singing and dancing penguins doesn’t have […]

Easily one of the strongest films so far this year, Moneyball tells the story (based on actual events) of Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), General Manager of the perennially underfunded Oakland A’s. When Beane finds his team poached of its best players at the end of the 2001 season, he decides to take a radically different […]

Steve Kelley Reviews “Moneyball” Starring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill

Posted: September 23, 2011 at 1:32 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

“It’s hard not to romanticize baseball.” Anyone who’s played baseball and/or has a passion for the game can understand the sentiment voiced by Billy Beane in Moneyball. Other films such as Field of Dreams have done so with tremendous success. Moneyball, on the other hand, doesn’t do so. Based on the novel by Michael Lewis, the […]
