Gone Girl

on 10-06-2014

Gone Girl This is a smartly twisted “who done what” of a movie. The ball kept bouncing in strange directions. I was fascinated to see where this ride was going to take me. The way it all unfolds was genius, complex, entertaining and troubling. It is both deeply disturbing and utterly fascinating. It takes us on an out of synch journey to some very dark places and outcomes. The acting is superb. Ben Afleck...

No Good Deed

on 9-22-2014

No Good Deed Idris Elba has now arched from Mandella to a creepy murderous escaped con in this drama, thriller. He has a rage filled list of reprisals he is carrying out after his prison parole hearing went against him. He has a scorpion like approach to his victims. He lays low before his strike, luring his victims in. Too bad he is a terrible liar. I felt slimed by this movie. It has...

A Walk Among The Tombstones I have always liked Liam Neeson as an actor. This latest role he has taken on as a retired detective in A Walk Among The Tombstones leaves me cold.

The November Man

  The November Man This movie comes at us like a stiletto blade. It is sharp edged and keeps us guessing as to the next twist to the story. It is indeed a complex and ever broadening tapestry of characters and events. It was filmed in Belgrade, Serbia and Montenegro. It has that unique European charm. The characters are well portrayed as either victim, prey, hunter, fiendish power player, CIA or that nasty composite...

The Expendables 3 This is a romp into dark places in the world by a band of highly skilled and funny do gooder tuff guys. There is a lot of humor and a lot of fierce action. The first mission Stallone, Statham, Snipes and company embark on does not accomplish its aim. Stallone, the leader fires all of his team to protect them. Kelsey Grammer acts as talent scout for a new and younger...

Into The Storm

on 8-12-2014

Into The Storm This was better than I had thought it might be. There is a lot of computer graphics in this movie but maybe that is a good thing.  :o) They use archival footage at times to show us the horrific power of a tornado. We are joined in with a team of tornado chasers working to get up close footage of a tornado. The actual goal is to get footage from the...
