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 [...]

Closed Circuit

August 28, 2013

Johnny English Reborn

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Get ready for some laughs when you see this movie. And it is nice to see a movie, a new major release, which doesn't contain a lot of strong language. It has a few innuendos, but it is not gratuitous, and the physical humor of Rowan Atkinson is worth seeing. I get the impression the filmmakers made [...]
