Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Hanna

Posted: April 8, 2011 at 12:05 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Joe Wright’s latest, Hanna, is an assassin picture on the surface but at its heart is a film of self discovery after being trapped in isolation your whole life.  It all works really well, but after one viewing I feel like it is missing that special something to make it incredible. The film is fun, […]

“The Hobbit” Adds Actress Saoirse Ronan To The Cast

Posted: January 27, 2011 at 11:33 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Even though I have no idea how to pronounce Saoirse Ronan’s first name, I still think she is an extremely talented kid.  Atonement is one of my favorite films, and she is a big reason for that.  I also think that critics were pretty hard on The Lovely Bones which I personally enjoyed a lot.  Now […]

The Lovely Bones – Movie Review

Posted: January 15, 2010 at 8:41 pm   /   Local, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

Based on the runaway bestselling novel, The Lovely Bones tells the story of Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan), a 14-year old girl murdered in the early ‘70s.  Susie narrates her story from beyond the grave, not as a ghost story per se, but as an ethereal onlooker; trapped between this life and the next in a […]

The Lovely Bones

Posted: January 15, 2010 at 12:01 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Peter Jackson’s latest adaptation is visually stunning but feels like a cliff notes version of the novel and on its own right doesn’t go deep enough into these characters relationships and feelings to connect us as emotionally as possible with the rich material. The story follows the path of Susie Salmon a 14 year old […]
