“Berlin Alexanderplatz”

There’s not a lot about Burhan Qurbani’s updating of “Berlin Alexanderplatz” that declares itself “adapted from one of the greatest novels of the 20th century.” It’s stately and long — nearly three hours. But Rainer Werner Fassbender’s definitive 1980 version, for German TV, ran for over 15 hours and was shown in theaters over multiple […]

Hereditary (2018)

When the matriarch of the Graham family passes away, her daughter and grandchildren begin to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry, trying to outrun the sinister fate they have inherited. This is a film that had always been on the edge of my awareness especially as reviews came up when the film […]

The Annie Awards Honor “Soul”

I think it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that Soul is going to win the Oscar for Best Animated Film.  I’m not complaining because I really, really liked Soul.  (I also really liked Farmageddon but, sadly, there can only be one winner.)  That said, if Soul needed a boost, it certainly got one from the […]

Jakob’s Wife – the Barbara Crampton show

Barbara Crampton plays Anne, a woman “trapped” in a pretty boring marriage with a Minister, and she yearns for something more. Jakob’s Wife has themes of age, marriage, relationships, and uses vampires as an analogy for all of them. It’s entertaining and I liked this movie. Barbara Crampton is a pleasure to watch in this […]

REVIEW: “The Tunnel” (2021)

The new (at least in the States) Norwegian disaster movie “The Tunnel” opens by dropping a few interesting facts that adds some perspective to what we are about to see. We learn that there are 1100 tunnels throughout Norway, most without emergency exits or safety rooms. The title cards go on to say that since […]

First Glance: “Riders of Justice”

Mads Mikkelsen? Sold! That’s all I needed to be interested in the upcoming film “Riders of Justice”. This Danish action-black comedy mix comes from writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen who previously worked with Mikkelsen on the underrated Western “The Salvation” and the astutely titled “Men & Chicken”. With “Riders” Jensen looks to be pulling from both […]

Movie Review: Molding Young Minds the Michael Scott way — “YouthMin”

“YouthMin” is a cute mockumentary in “The Office” mold — “The Office” at Church Camp. It’s got the same “cringeworthy” comedy dynamic as the dysfunctional Scranton paper supply sitcom, a similarly clueless “leader,” but with teen hormones in comic conflict with “wholesomeness” as a new wrinkle. It could use a few more laughs and another […]

REVIEW: “Vanquish” (2021)

A cool idea can go a long way in making a good movie. But rarely is a movie good solely because of a cool idea. That speaks to the biggest problem with “Vanquish”, the new crime thriller directed and co-written by George Gallo. The movie’s snappy premise is action movie junk food, the perfect scenario […]

Barbara Crampton goes vampire

Barbara Crampton takes a bite out of her new role in Jakob’s Wife (2021). This is a brand new indie film soon to be released starring Barbara Crampton, and the trailer dropped recently to give us a taste of what’s to come. Ok enough vampire wordplay.

Film Review: “Nomadland” (2020)

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 4 out of 5. One of the best descriptions of being a nomad is a wanderer. A person who does not set boundaries for himself – he or she goes beyond it. Why have one place called home when there’s opportunity to be living in every part of the country. That does not […]
