Solo: A Star Wars Story Movie Review

Solo of course refers to Han Solo, he of roughish charm and one liners. In early chapters, Harrison Ford made the role his own and now Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar! & Beautiful Creatures) gets the chance to put his own stamp on the role. Unfortunately his character is the least developed in the film and the roughish charm inherent in Ford’s take is mostly missing. When Ehrenreich as Solo claims he is an outlaw, it’s a stretch to believe as per the actions that have come before. ...

Isle Of Dogs Movie Review

Returning to the stop-motion animation technique he used so successfully in The Fantastic Mr. Fox had not limited him in any way. In fact just the opposite has taken place as this film is his most imaginative work yet.   //   It’s also so lovely to look at. The beauty is everywhere, the sets are amazing, the storyline is rich and the characters that make up the cast ring emotionally true. Wes even manages a completely satisfying ending, never that easy with a film of ...

Early Man Movie Review

The story revolves about the fictional creation of football and being eccentrically British we’re talking about soccer and not the American grid iron sport. The film features mostly a human type cast with a few animals to give it a youthful appeal. However the animals that do frequent the screen add a lot of the film’s laugh out loud humour. // It’s an odd mix of humour and commentary on such adult topics as the privilege of the rich and the social pecking order of the haves ...

A Wrinkle In Time Movie Review

It might be a generational thing as this reviewer is far removed from being a tween but great story telling has the ability to transcend age limitations. There are good things to take from the experience however as Reese Witherspoon is very appealing and funny as one of the major characters and it’s good to see Oprah back on the big screen. It’s also great to see Disney give a chance to a female director on one of its major films, in this case Ava DuVernay (Selma, Middle Of Nowhere). ...

Winchester Movie Review

The story involving the guilt felt by the surviving widow of the creator of the huge Winchester Arms company is a solid one. The way this guilt manifests itself as the story evolves opens quite a few doors for exploration of the world of the living and the dead but it can’t sustain such a poor script.   //   Even the mighty Helen Mirren, try as she might, can’t do much with the wooden marbles she has to spit out. As the cliches pile up, the film relies more and more ...

Win a double pass to a special advance screening of Winchester staring Helen Mirren!

Inspired by true events at the most haunted house in history. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits a house that knows no end.
