Hail, Caesar!

February 5, 2016
"Hail, Caesar!" is an original -- there is nothing else like it in theaters these days. It calls back to a lost time in Hollywood when studio heads fixed problems on movies, including keeping their stars out of the wrong kind of headlines. In this case, Josh Brolin is the man in charge of keeping [...]

February 7, 2014
This movie begins with the notation that it is based on a true story. It opens in Paris, France, in March, 1943.

The American

September 1, 2010

There are actually several scenes in the film which included Clooney's character, Jack, driving for a long period of time and we see the road from [...]

This movie examines the lonely life of Ryan, a frequent traveler. At first, his life appears enjoyable. Traveling around with no strings attached. But life is due to change and for this poor soul, it should. One would typically think that a film of this type would have a deep and profound [...]

Fantastic Mr. Fox

The animation is unique and vivid in this film, and a father fox whose lifestyle causes his family all kinds of problems takes a bit of responsibility in the end. And I just ran out of good things to say because the father, despite owning a job at a newspaper, continues to steal and has his family [...]
