American Honey (2016)

The Girl on the Train (2016)

"If you envy the staged, make-believe life of the Kardashians, you will understand the premise. Blunt, Bennett, Evans, Ferguson and Theroux are sensational. Especially Bennett. If you loved the book, this delivers." ‐

Snowden (2016)

Posted Aug 30, 2016

Don't Breathe (2016)

"Terrific and unsettling horror-thriller. Alvarez is using film to explore his fetishes and he's doing a great job." ‐
Posted Aug 25, 2016

Ben-Hur (2016)

"Two stunning scenes and two boring actors without charisma. They neutered their characters. Messala ruined the Ben-Hur family simply out of necessity - he was just doing his job." ‐
Posted Aug 19, 2016

Sausage Party (2016)

"Forget famous atheists Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins and Bill Maher. SAUSAGE PARTY is the movement's Mein Kampf. " ‐
Posted Aug 15, 2016

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

"Meryl Streep is brilliant and the sun is shining on Hugh Grant again. Their performances are extraordinary. " ‐
Posted Aug 11, 2016

Suicide Squad (2016)

"Delivers exactly what it promises and what you expect. Along with JASON BOURNE, see these two and forget the rest." ‐
Posted Aug 2, 2016

Jason Bourne (2016)

"Bravo to star Damon and director Greengrass. Ethan Hunt and James Bond, how are you going to top the destruction of the Las Vegas Strip?" ‐
Posted Jul 28, 2016

Café Society (2016)

"Allen's clever film questioning whether you should abandon love or go for it." ‐
Posted Jul 22, 2016

The Infiltrator (2016)

" Cranston is at the center of all the action. It's a highly narcissist performance - like LBJ - and mesmerizing. " ‐
Posted Jul 15, 2016

Ghostbusters (2016)

"The screenwriters love Kate McKinnon and dismiss Leslie Jones. The biggest laugh goes to Zach Woods in the opening scene. Stay for Hemsworth dance during the credits." ‐
Posted Jul 14, 2016

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)

"Establishes Efron as a movie star. Aubrey Plaza walks off with the movie." ‐
Posted Jul 10, 2016

Posted Jul 4, 2016

Swiss Army Man (2016)

"Excruciating and only for film aficionado masochists." ‐
Posted Jun 28, 2016

Warcraft (2016)

"Warcraft predicts our future. The Orcs have the "fel". We have the LHC. See it once, then you will see it again." ‐
Posted Jun 15, 2016

The Conjuring 2 (2016)

"Its not good vs. evil, it is the love the Warrens have for each other. Wan delivers a suitable follow-up even though it might not be the Warrens story to tell." ‐
Posted Jun 9, 2016

The Lobster (2016)

"Director Yorgos Lanthimos challenges society's demands that we mate - for life." ‐
Posted Jun 1, 2016

Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

"Spectacular visuals! No story to follow but costumes and Sacha Baron Cohen are terrific. Only thing to ask is 'Who played Johnny Depp?'" ‐
Posted May 26, 2016

Holy Hell (2016)

"Fascinating insider look at a crazy cult leader and the devotees who were blinded by fantasy and hope for The Knowing." ‐
Posted May 25, 2016

The Nice Guys (2016)

"Shane Black re-writes the buddy movie template and gives Crowe a second chance and a franchise. Lots of nasty, unrepentant violence and hookers. Pure enjoyment. " ‐
Posted May 20, 2016

The Angry Birds Movie (2016)

"Terrific use of 3D, unique story and sly references for adults." ‐
Posted May 19, 2016

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

Keanu (2016)

"The poster kitten gets a cameo!" ‐
Posted Apr 29, 2016

The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)

Posted Apr 22, 2016

Midnight Special (2016)

"Shannon once again delivers depth and compassion to this unusual tale without spiritual gymnastics." ‐
Posted Apr 13, 2016

Demolition (2016)

"A unique tale with Gyllenhaal creating a vibrant, original character assisted by a terrific young actor, Judah Lewis." ‐
Posted Apr 7, 2016

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"Batman threatened by Superman? Affleck never gets into the character but gets all the close-ups. Eisenberg needs a new acting style and Alfred hates his employer." ‐
Posted Mar 31, 2016

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

"If you've seen CLOVERFIELD you will love this follow-up. If you haven't, you will love this follow-up, stand-alone horror-thriller. It's got a smart female victim!" ‐
Posted Mar 20, 2016

Deadpool (2016)

"Ryan Reynolds becomes a certified movie star. DEADPOOL makes all the other superhero characters look like relics from the 1950s - except the Black Widow." ‐
Posted Mar 12, 2016

Love (2015)

"Karl Glusman has a future in Hollywood." ‐
Posted Mar 4, 2016

The Boy (2016)

"Women who own "reborn" dolls will love this terrific, twisty horror movie." ‐
Posted Feb 7, 2016

The Finest Hours (2016)

"Great special effects but no one showed one sign of being in a blizzard. Unnecessary love story is laughable." ‐
Posted Feb 1, 2016

The Revenant (2015)

"A masterpiece. Should take Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Cinematography this year, next year and the year after that. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jan 17, 2016

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"Bravo! Ford ignites the movie! He's the star and jumps right back into the iconic role. Disney brought a princess but it was a bait and switch. They got General Great-Greatma instead." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jan 12, 2016

By The Sea (2015)

"A mature, self-assured look at a marriage. Jolie-Pitt's skill at directing continues and BY THE SEA should not be dismissed as a "favor" movie." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jan 11, 2016

The Danish Girl (2015)

"Beautifully done. If it was 2015, Einar would have been classified as an "autogynephilic transsexual." " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jan 10, 2016

Sherpa (2015)

"The side to climbing Everest rarely acknowledged." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jan 10, 2016

Goodnight Mommy (2015)

"If you missed last year's The Babadook and It Follows, do not miss Goodnight Mommy. It is a terrific thriller and there will not be a faithful Hollywood remake." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 12, 2015

Spectre (2015)

"Terrific and perfect. Craig delivers a farewell with everything but gratitude now that it's "supposedly" over for him. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 4, 2015

Spotlight (2015)

"A tedious bore. The cast chews up the scenery with twitchy acting trying to put energy into the plodding script. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 30, 2015

Steve Jobs (2015)

"Fassbender gives a brilliant, electrifying performance. Its fast, its brutal and it is an enthralling movie. Can an unwanted beginning explain him?" ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 22, 2015

The Walk (2015)

"French is a sexy language; English spoken with a French accent...not so lyrical. The frenzied pace makes Gordon-Levitt sound like Pepe Le Pew. The lack of strategy diminishes the story but the special effects are dazzling." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 21, 2015

Crimson Peak (2015)

"Dazzling sets and profoundly gorgeous costumes by Kate Hawley. Hiddleston captures the essence of Rhett Butler with a Heathcliff subtext. Chastain walks off with every scene she's in." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 15, 2015

Sicario (2015)

"A sharp, uncompromising thriller and Benicio Del Toro gets his own franchise. Where is Brad Pitt's franchise?" ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Sep 29, 2015

The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?) (2015)

"It speaks to anyone considering hiring a live-in nanny. Regina Casé is terrific." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Sep 25, 2015

The End Of The Tour (2015)

"Torturous. Fitzgerald, Hemmingway, Salinger and...David Foster Wallace? Come on, you never heard of him or his book. This movie is just an ad for another book, Primary Colors." ‐ Las Vegas Informer
