Love and Sex

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002448125" data-doc-type="writer">“I know ten times more about blowjobs than I do about relationships” insists Kate Welles (Famke Janssen) in the opening moments of “Love and Sex.” Over the course of the next 75 minutes, Kate will experience one gigantic epiphany consisting of numerous smaller realizations and will...

Almost Famous

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002449123" data-doc-type="writer">“Almost Famous” long sat on the shelf preparing for release with no studio-approved title. Prospects included “The Uncool,” “The Untitled Cameron Crowe Project” and, simply, “Untitled.” The latter title would have been most appropriate as the genuinely brilliant ensemble piece, created under the deft guidance of...

But I’m a Cheerleader

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002450117" data-doc-type="writer">“But I’m a Cheerleader” so profusely exaggerates its entire premise that the picture crosses the line from being merely satirical of an already much-satirized society to being downright stupid. The continuously hyperbolic nature of the film would be offensive enough to draw complaint from both homosexuals...

The Eyes of Tammy Faye

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002448127" data-doc-type="writer">Years from now, when the 1980’s are reduced to a few meager paragraphs in textbooks, only a few names will make the cut. Ronald Reagan and Oliver North will probably be two of them for the infamous Iran-Contra scandal. Ditto Mike Milken and Ivan Boesky for...

Snatch

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002450119" data-doc-type="writer">A rollicking exercise in perverse darkness, Guy Ritchie’s sophomore outing, Snatch, is the rare film that produces disgust-induced humor with some degree of frequency and yet never stoops to a juvenile level. The laughs in this crime-dominated movie find their origin in a hearty combination of...

Solo is So So

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002450120" data-doc-type="writer">“Solo: A Star Wars” directed by Ron Howard and is the 10th film in the Star Wars saga but only the 2nd anthology film following 2016’s “Rogue One”. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clark, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton and Paul Bettany. Phil Lord...

Blood Diamond (2006)

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002448129" data-doc-type="writer">If you didn’t already know it, Africa has quite a few problems. One of these problems is the blood diamond trade. Essentially, blood diamonds are diamonds mined in a war-torn area of Africa, and they are sold in order to raise funds to fuel more war....

Equilibrium

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002449125" data-doc-type="writer">Science Fiction films will inevitably fade from our movie theatres in the exact same fashion as the Western has. It saddens me greatly to admit this. Some of my absolute favorite films have come from the fantastical genre, such as Star Wars, The Matrix, The Fifth...

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002449129" data-doc-type="writer">Of all the film franchises that have struggled to gain solid reputations, the Mission: Impossible films are a very hit and miss bag. The first film, people complained that the plot was too complex, the second was too pretentious and the third was just plain nuts....

Hancock (2008)

<p class="zw-paragraph" data-doc-id="1418007000002448133" data-doc-type="writer">Hancock has many points where it’s well worth watching, and a few others were it falls really short. The parts that are good deal with flipping the stereotypical good guy superhero on its head, while the negatives come from inconsistent characters and the fact that, with...
