Review: ‘Grown Ups 2’ Starring Adam Sandler and Friends is One of 2013’s Worst Movies

Movie Review: Oliver Stone’s ‘Savages’ Starring Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Blake Lively

Posted: July 6, 2012 at 9:40 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Oliver Stone returns to his roots, with subject matter somewhat reminiscent of Scarface and Natural Born Killers. But Savages is unique enough to stand on its own, not fitting perfectly into one genre or the other. And that is what makes this vivid, beautifully filmed tale of two naive California drug lords who take on […]
