Just when you think every interesting story about WWII has been told and retold, along comes another, and this one as compelling as any that came before. "The Last Vermeer", is a tale of mystery, of Art Fraud, and the weeding out of Nazi collaboration at the end of the war. It's also a gripping courtroom drama with twist after twist and a...

What do you need to spin a yarn about teenagers in danger, that twists the usual Slasher/Comedy film in some unique way, yet stays true to the original genre?Simple. First, you borrow every cliché in every film of its type that came before it and blends it into a slickly shot, gory, playtime piece that your projected audience is both used to... Read More

Jon Stewart, the genius behind 16 years of the best version of Comedy Central's "Daily Show" may have taken his leave from television, but he hasn't left the spotlight for a minute. Recently, after nine years of lobbying, he showed up at a congressional hearing fighting for health benefits for the First Responders of 911. Then, he showed ... Read More

It seems that there have been a few really enjoyable horror films around these days. You know the ones, they keep you guessing and at one or two points you get that scare that lifts you out of your chair and makes your heart beat faster. True horror aficionados live for these exquisite ‘Levitation Scenes' and will stay through some pretty... Read More

You rarely hear me fawning over a movie, but when I finally get the opportunity to review a really enjoyable film, well, it's just Great. "The High Note" is such a film. It hits all the right "Notes". It doesn't take itself too seriously, it isn't too heavy, or preachy, or over-wroth with emotion, it just slides right into that ... Read More

There's something unique, beautiful, and visually stunning about the way that British filmmakers try to recreate a certain era of their history. I'm referring to the Georgian/Regency era when big manner houses dotted the countryside and the polite society of upper-class nobility lived a charmed and somewhat jaded existence. It's a historic period t... Read More

At long last director Guy Richie is back in the territory he knows best - the harsh, talky, violent, clever, funny, sexy, entertaining, and ever ‘British Cool' of Cockney London's underworld. It's a post-modern English pulp fiction gem of a film, presented in a way that only a master of the sub-genre can bring it to the screen; and I'm glad t... Read More

As you should know "Bad Boys For Life" is the third action-packed buddy-cop film in the Jerry Bruckheimer/Michael Bay created franchise, and comes out nearly two decades after the last entry. Surprisingly, it maintains the same level of high-spirited, chaotic, action as the previous films, even though this outing moves its main characters... Read More

Some memories never fade and a great film sometimes has a way of making them all that more vivid. One I'll never forget is racing through the canyons of Beverley, Coldwater, Laurel, and Topanga in my brand new GT 350 Ford Shelby Mustang. Sure wish I still owned that car, it has always been my favorite and fastest. Thank you, Carroll Shelby, for a l... Read More
