Review: Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen

Posted: March 10, 2017 at 6:00 am   /   Movie Reviews

I have a confession to make. I didn’t really watch Disney films as a child. Okay, that isn’t completely accurate. Dumbo was one of my favorite movies growing up, and when I was 9, my sister dragged me to the theaters to watch The Lion King for her birthday. Beyond that, though, I never watched […]

Movie Review: ‘Taken 2’ Starring Liam Neeson – More of a Remake than Sequel

Posted: October 5, 2012 at 5:30 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Back in 2008, a small film called Taken took theaters by surprise, revitalizing Liam Neeson’s career. Although he’d had parts in several bigger movies (The Phantom Menace, The Dark Knight, etc.), he really hadn’t had a tremendous starring role since his portrayals of Oskar Schindler and Michael Collins. Despite mediocre critical review, audiences loved Taken and Neeson re-emerged […]

“Robocop” Remake Gets Its Lead and a Distributor

Posted: March 6, 2012 at 1:06 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I just watched “Robocop” for the first time a couple of years ago.  I was impressed.  While it definitely has an 80s style to it, I think it still holds up pretty well for today’s audience.  I was shocked at how violent the film was.  Not a bad thing of course.  As much as I […]

Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” Gets Its First Poster

Posted: February 21, 2012 at 10:31 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I am a big fan of Tim Burton, but he is far from perfect in my eyes.  I am much more a fan of his earlier work (“Batman”, “Beetlejuice”, “Edward Scissorhands”).  But he has some ground to make up after seriously disappointing me with “Alice in Wonderland”.  This might be the year.  Burton has two […]

Movie Review: ‘Footloose’ Dances to Same Beats from 1984

Posted: October 14, 2011 at 10:53 am   /   Featured, Film, Local, Movie Reviews

As a woman, I’m inclined to bestow immediate praise on the new version of Footloose. I mean, the only way this movie could appeal to my nostalgic ladyparts even more would be to randomly include neon Lisa Frank art and unicorns. And then that realization kind of scared me, so I had a frank talk […]

Nicholas Winding Refn May Direct “Wonder Woman” After “Logan’s Run” Remake

Posted: August 16, 2011 at 7:19 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Nicholas Winding Refn is currently on a bit of a hot streak according to most critics, and if he can complete a trifecta then he might get to see his dream realized.  “Bronson” received a lot of praise for those that have seen it, and I have yet to check out his newest film “Drive”, but it […]

Clint Eastwood Wants Leonardo DiCaprio to Star Opposite Beyonce in ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake

Posted: June 27, 2011 at 10:52 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

In 2003, I was just starting to really get into films.  Appreciating acting more.  Taking notice to particular camera shots.  Really listening to the music.  And MYSTIC RIVER blew me away.  The film just really hit me hard.  Now, eight years later, Clint Eastwood hasn’t directed a bad movie since, in my eyes, so I […]

Will Rooney Mara Be Topless On “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” Poster?

Posted: February 3, 2011 at 5:40 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

If it was up to David Fincher she would.  Fincher has received quite a bit of attention lately due to the award season and The Social Network.  Unfortunately for him, it seems that his Oscar gold is slipping away from him with The King’s Speech being the current front runner.  But Fincher doesn’t seem to […]

“Lethal Weapon”,”The Wild Bunch”, And More Are Added To The List Of Unnecessary Remakes

Posted: January 19, 2011 at 9:29 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Reboots and remakes are all the rage.  It worked for such films as The Ring and Batman Begins so why not take as many properties as possible and milk the cash cow.  Most people including me are getting a little tired of this trend.  It’s almost as bad as the torture porn genre that was […]
