Nobody Movie Review

Bob Odenkirk plays Hutch Mansell, an everyday schmo whose family life is on repeat play until a home invasion turns things upside down and his past comes to the fore. For those that are fans of Mr. Goodman, it’s like seeing him transform into Rambo and play out an adult fantasy version of Home Alone.   //   There is a tie-in with the Russian mafia that doesn’t involve a puppy but might include a Van Gogh painting and one badass Grandfather (played with an infectious ...

Retro Movie Review – Robocop

Now revisiting Robocop in 2014 is a plan fraught with risks and Brazilian born director/documentarian José Padilha hasn’t really helped matters by choosing some elements within the first version to revisit while casting aside others. His more moralistic take is interesting while his almost complete discarding of some of the eighties version’s most humorous elements (mainly the hilarious TV ads) have taken a lot of the fun out. Original director Paul Verhoeven’s biting social satire ...

The Little Things Movie Review

Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto head an impressive cast, and the three play to their established strengths. Denzel is the stoic yet intense one, Rami delivers the emotion with a minimalist flair and Leto is his usual super creepy self. One wonders what dead animals he sent to the Big D and Rami this time out.   //   The story involves an uncaught serial killer in the Los Angeles area and the victims that have been created amongst the living and the dead. ...

Retro Movie Review – Micmacs

Jeunet’s films always have a political edge (even if it’s just personal politics) and an opinion about the state of play and in Micmacs; he has the weapons industry firmly in his sights. Our main character Bazil (Dany Boon) has had his life drastically affected by the tools of the arms trade and decides to fight back.   //   The humour in this film is of a very psychical nature and a reasonable starting point of description would be the works of Charlie Chaplin. The ...

Promising Young Woman Movie Review

Carey Mulligan is amazing as Cassandra, a young woman who has yet to recover from a devastating tragedy, an event that has altered the direction of her life forever. The mastery of understated nuance and comic timing is impeccable. You feel for her and mid-film when you experience the easing of her darkness, you rejoice.   //   This only adds to your horror are the vehicle of her release proves to be complicit in the event that set the misery into motion. It is a truly ...
