Movie Review: ‘Evil Dead’ Directed by Fede Alvarez, Produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell

Posted: April 4, 2013 at 10:18 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

When I first heard about the remake of The Evil Dead, I was skeptical. I mean one couldn’t help but think it would be terrible, much like the horror remakes of the last few years. One thing that separated this from the other line of horror retreads was the fact that Michael Bay was nowhere […]

Movie Review: ‘The Call’ Starring Halle Berry, Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut, Michael Eklund

My mother always told me that if you didn’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.  Well, if I were to follow that rule then this would be a very short review.  This flick was a complete disaster from the get go.  It’s one bad thriller cliche after another and even […]

Who hasn’t loved magic at one point or another? As a child it is something that you never doubt, with the only rational explanation being that it must be real. As an adult you know that it is all a big trick – but there is something fascinating about watching it, nonetheless. The Incredible Burt […]

Review: CHICAGO Brings Dance, Liquor and “All That Jazz” to The Muny in St. Louis

Posted: June 26, 2012 at 6:00 am   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, Local

When I saw the movie adaptation “Chicago” almost a decade ago, I knew absolutely nothing about it the story, the music, the dancing, anything.  And I was completely astounded.  It quickly became one of my favorite films of all time.  I loved the music.  I loved the dancing.  I loved the actors in the roles.

What would you do if you knew the world was about to end?  Would you go crazy every night without a care of what the repercussions could be?  Would you seek out your family one last time?  Would you try to find the love you thought you had lost?  “Seeking a Friend for the End […]

About a month ago, I was sitting in the theater and two things happened that I was very upset by.  A teaser trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” came on and a couple of people applauded when it ended.  Then a trailer for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” immediately followed.  The audience seemed captured […]

Woody Allen has provided some remarkable films that viewers have walked out of theaters and talked about for days, but he has also provided films that are instantly forgettable.  His latest film “To Rome With Love” falls somewhere in between.  Unfortunately, coming off the critically acclaimed “Midnight in Paris”, most will leave the theater disappointed […]

Movie Review: ‘That’s My Boy’ Starring Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Leighton Meester

Posted: June 15, 2012 at 9:42 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

There has never been an Adam Sandler film I have ever been excited about.  I caught Happy Gilmore on HBO when I was younger, but that is the extent of my toleration of his films.  This is very important to note because if you are a fan of his brand of comedy and have liked […]
