“Sisters” Film Review

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler are comedic match made in heaven. Sisters, the latest comedy from director Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) and writer Paula Pell (Saturday Night Live), is an extreme improvement from Fey and Poehler’s pairing in Baby Mama.  Here, the two of them get to do what they do best: have fun & make people laugh.  Not only are the jokes pretty damn … Continue reading “Sisters” Film Review

“A Very Murray Christmas” Special Review

I love a good Holiday film, especially when it’s in the way of a holiday special.  This year, Netflix decided to release a Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) Holiday-like special with a great cast.  And the star of the show is Bill Murray, hence A Very Murray Christmas. You would think with a talented director like Sofia Coppola, a screenplay written by her, Bill Murray … Continue reading “A Very Murray Christmas” Special Review

“Youth” Film Review

When it comes to strikingly beautiful films, Youth is one of those films. Not only is it gorgeous to look at, but it combines a deep story with some real and emotional performances. Directed and written by Italian Paolo Sorrentino (his second English film since This Must Be the Place), Sorrentino is known for gorgeous filmmaking, having won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film … Continue reading “Youth” Film Review

“Fifty Shades of Grey” Film Review

I haven’t seen a lot of horrible films in 2015, and it takes a lot for me to really hate something.  But, Fifty Shades of Grey hit the bullseye for one of the worst films of all time. Misogynistic, terrible screenplay, laughable acting & odd soundtrack are just a few reasons why I could not stand this film.  Which is sad, seeing that the screenwriter, … Continue reading “Fifty Shades of Grey” Film Review

“Brooklyn” Film Review

Romance. Drama. Ireland. Brooklyn.  These are all of the elements that make up the story for John Crowley’s (Closed Circuit) latest film from writer Nick Hornby (Wild, An Education). Not only one of the best films of 2015, but one of the best romance films of the decade, Brooklyn is a beautiful and moving romantic drama that soars thanks to a terrific screenplay and a … Continue reading “Brooklyn” Film Review

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” Film Review

And so we have the final film of The Hunger Games series.  It’s the end of an exciting time with a Mockingjay – Part 2 that went out with pretty good bang. The film opens with Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) healing from the choking attack that Peeta (played by Josh Hutcherson) put her through at the end of Part 1, after he was toiled … Continue reading “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” Film Review
