Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2016
93% 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 EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2016
35% 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 EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2016
67% The Danish Girl (2015) Beautifully done. If it was 2015, Einar would have been classified as an "autogynephilic transsexual." - Las Vegas Informer EDIT

84% 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 EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2015
72% 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 EDIT

91% 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 EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) Henry Cavill won the evolutionary sweepstakes and even without being Ritchie's object of desire, he's the best thing in the movie. Everything else is boring, stunted and a "who cares"? - Las Vegas Informer EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2015
92% The Gift (2015) The surprise emergence of a highly talented writer-director. Bravo to Bateman for taking on such a tough role. - Las Vegas Informer EDIT

Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2015
85% Trainwreck (2015) Not as raunchy as you want it to be. Bill Hader's voice was like nails scratching a blackboard. He wears a bad wig. - Las Vegas Informer EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2015
