Unfinished Business (2015) Review

It’s a rare thing for me to hate a movie so intensely while watching it, but within half an hour Vince Vaughan’s latest ‘comedy vehicle’ had me surreptitiously checking IMDB on my phone to see what the running time was. If it had been anything more than the 91 [excruciating] minutes listed, I may have … Continue reading Unfinished Business (2015) Review

2 Guns (2013) Review

Despite its very modern sensibilities and a tightly woven plot which piles double-cross upon double-cross in an accelerating game of bait and switch, there's something refreshingly old-school about "2 Guns". There's an easy chemistry between lead actors Denzel Washington and Mark Walberg which powers this lean action comedy and keeps it motoring along through its … Continue reading 2 Guns (2013) Review

Warner Bros simply doesn’t have the financial resources to match the combined might of Disney, Sony … Continue reading X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014) Review

Robot And Frank (2012) Review

“Robot And Frank” is an utterly charming, bittersweet film about themes. Anchored by a masterfully gentle performance by Frank Langella, “Robot And Frank” explores the cruelty of dementia while also exploring the impact technology has and is having on the basic fabric of society: our connections to and with other people, and our societal obsession … Continue reading Robot And Frank (2012) Review
