Vic: Never Give Up
This is the third in a series of novels about your average female resident of the early 20th century who isn't really so average.      Victoria Custer's "day job" …

Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy is fun.  That's all you really need to know about it.  As far as summer blockbusters go (especially in August) it's just a ton of fun to behold, even if it's …

Hangar 18
I was one of the folks who had the good fortune to see HANGAR 18 when it was released originally theatrically.  Come to think of it, I think I saw it twice.  It was my kind of story: soft science …

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013 film)
I’m one of the rare few who actually had an awful lot of fun with G.I. JOE – THE RISE OF COBRA.  I thought – like most truly good summer fare – it was a motion picture that …

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
         DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK      This film is a remake of a made for TV film from back in the day so naturally the comparisons are going …

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
I'll be honest with you, I wasn't all that excited for this movie when I saw the first trailer. The first Captain America was a dud, my vote for the worst Marvel movie leading up to The Avengers. …

reviewed Things to Come (1936). April 01
Things to Come (1936)
In all seriousness, I hold classic films in very high regard.  I’ve always been fascinated by what storytellers have been able to accomplish in cinema, and it’s even more captivating …

Knights of Badassdom
Although I like to privately imagine myself still of that age group acceptably dubbed ‘fanboys,’ I’m probably a bit older than most to be a true card-carrying variety.  I’ve …

Jusitce League: Flashpoint Paradox
With as long as many of these DC characters have been around, I would imagine that some writers and illustrators certainly have their work cut out for themselves when it comes to crafting a tale that’s …

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
They couldn't make it last, could they?    After deftly avoiding the big love triangle sub-plot that could have fogged up the first Hunger Games, in the sequel, Catching Fire, they …

Disney's Planes
In the event that you wonder how in the world the Pixar Cars franchise morphed into the Disney Planes universe (of which this film is the first of a proposed trilogy), let’s take a look at the interesting …

The Bling Ring
"The Bling Ring" is an odd, funny, somewhat artsy film from Sofia Coppolla based on a fascinating Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales titled "The Suspects Wore Louboutins."  …

'The Impossible' Starring Naomi Watts & Ewan McGregor
Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor star as parents who take their three sons to Thailand on vacation where they become victims of the deadly tsunami of 2004.      Every minute of this true …
reviewed Vikingdom. January 20
Vikingdom
Take note, gentle warriors: highbrow critics have always been quick (and first) to dismiss the validity of the fantasy film.  Why?  Well, there are possibly scores of reasons that range from …

The Croods
You really have to hand it to DreamWorks; often considered second fiddle to the mastery of the CG craft that is Pixar, these guys just continue to release solid family flick after solid family flick.  …

Everyone's Hero (2006)
Everyone’s Hero is one of those rare animated features that boasted a pretty hardy theatrical run but slipped onto the DVD scene fairly quietly and slipped into relative obscurity since.  It’s …

Brave
To animated film students and CG geeks in general, the geniuses responsible for the Pixar classics we know and love have become something of celebrities themselves.  John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete …

It's a Wonderful Life
I looked up the writers of the classic Frank Capra flick It's a Wonderful Life. Capra's name was among them, and when I did some further-depth research about his own life, I was a little surprised to …

R.I.P.D. (2013 film)
R.I.P.D. didn't have a chance.  Based on a rather unknown comic with a premise that isn't too different from what were already popular movies in Ghostbusters and Men In Black and both of …

Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story
Arnold Schwarzenegger wants us all to know this: He might look like and act the part of a giant muscular lug in his movies, but no matter what you think of his personal politics and behavior in real life, …

Prince of Persia Sands of Time
Before seeing PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME for the first time, I was already somewhat familiar with the general premise of the story because I had played a couple of video games the movie is based …
reviewed The Seasoning House. November 18, 2013
The Seasoning House
I never like to mince words on what I think of any particular film or DVD, and, under most circumstances, THE SEASONING HOUSE is one of those flicks I can take or leave.  At its core, it’s …

Antiviral (2013 film)
Plenty has been written about the films of David Cronenberg.  I don’t want to paint myself into a corner, but I’m one of those rare few that has failed to draw much inspiration from his …
