Godzilla Review: A Movie Entirely About Everything Other Than Godzilla

The world’s most famous and powerful giant lizard returns in a movie titled after his name: ‘Godzilla.’ Directed by Gareth Edwards and written for the screen by Max Borenstein/Dave Callaham, Godzilla presents a view of a world where everything seems to go wrong all of a sudden and rather randomly. The thrill is light, and while Godzilla is the name of the film, it hardly feels like a bulk of the f...[Read More]

Locke Review: Paint Drying Is More Interesting Than Cement

Steven Knight (Eastern Promises) directs and writes ‘Locke,’ a one-man show about a man driving from one part of the United Kingdom to another in a 6-day shooting production period.

The movie of Locke centers on Iva...[Read More]

There are your films using cameras about poltergeist, or demonic possessions made popular by Paranormal ...[Read More]

Enemy Review: The Tarantulas Have Spoken

Enemy is the critical inception of Jose Saramago on-screen in a movie that stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Adam Bell and his own counterpart/enemy – Anthony Claire. The storyline is very interesting, but a bulk of the story does not stay true to the novel’s depth of prose and thematic motif. The storyline starts with Adam Bell who is a Toronto History college professor who is very routine in his work and...[Read More]

300: Rise of An Empire Review – The Failure Of A Leader

300: Rise of an Empire tries to focus on rampant action and blood/gore from ‘300’ while continuing the story onwards. Zack Snyder wrote the screenplay of the movie, but on a very strong level his lack of work as a director is apparent in the film’s execution. While the storyline is bearable and the naval sequences vast in scale and size, the character of Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Staple...[Read More]
