Posted May 28, 2016
60% Year of the Dragon (1985) "This film is packed with exquisite wide-angles by cinematographer Alex Thomson. However, peeling away the surface layers reveals scant storytelling. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Posted Mar 22, 2016

Posted Mar 17, 2016
25% London Has Fallen (2016) "While originality might not be strong in 'London Has Fallen,' this action film pushes the envelope in terms of its emotional content. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Mar 10, 2016

Posted Mar 3, 2016
52% Black Rain (1999) "The production design and lighting are show-stoppers. Yet, more attention should be devoted to narrative shadings. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Feb 27, 2016

Posted Nov 1, 2015

Posted Aug 28, 2015

Posted May 1, 2015
100% Batman Vs. Robin (2015) "With 'Batman vs. Robin,' we get more than a crime fighting vigilante. Themes of family, guilt and honesty pave the way for a remarkably interactive experience. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Posted Feb 7, 2015
60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "Although 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' overstays its welcome, the story and characters remain indelible. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

97% Two Days, One Night (2014) "Marion Cotillard tackles the role of Sandra in a forthright and compelling manner. She shares her emotional struggle with us. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Nov 28, 2014
71% Interstellar (2014) "Christopher Nolan allows his imagination to run riot, yet many times the actors explain what's happening like a terrible tour guide. . . and the images rarely speak for themselves. " ‐ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Posted Nov 16, 2014
