Suburbicon Movie Review

Mr. Smooth, George Clooney directs alone but shares writing credit with the brothers Coen and Grant Heslov (Good Night, and Good Luck and The Monuments Men). The film lives in the same world that has occupied Joel and Ethan for many years now and it looks into the evil that regular people are capable of when they suspend all morality or give into the pack mentality. As a time capsule of mid-century life in American it gets the nuances just right and you can easily get lost in the mid-day ...

Jason Bourne Movie Review

As an action piece, it gets the job done but as a proper Jason Bourne movie, it’s quite the disappointing experience. Gone are almost all the clever ways Bourne can extract himself from trouble and in their place are just Teflon walks in the park. Moments where no real menace can really stick. // He gets out of almost every jam with just brawn and no brain. Julia Stilles is very much underutilized as well and sadly exits early and takes with her the only character that links Bourne ...

The Martian Movie Review

It is equal parts thriller and scientific exploration and focuses on the human resolve to rise to the occasion and survive despite all the odds. Matt Damon is fantastic as the hyper intelligent astronaut that due to circumstance gets left behind on an aborted manned mission on Mars. His approach to survival is based around his scientific knowledge and raw will to live but it is tempered by irreverence towards his circumstance and to the authority figures that he has to interface with. ...

Elysium Movie Review

The story follows Max (Matt Damon), a downtrodden underclassman vying for asylum in the privileged celestial city of Elysium. Like his poverty-stricken brethren, Max is an oppressed would-be saint crushed under the iron heel of an elitist upper class that is evil beyond redemption. Emotionally-laden key words such as 'homeland security' and 'no-fly zone' are bandied about to ensure we don't miss the point and one of the bad guys is Apartheid incarnate with his penchant for authoritarian ...

True Grit Movie Review

Performances are predictably grand from this cast (Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper) with the exception of newcomer, Hailee Steinfeld, who is a revelation; her elocution of the Coen's distinguished dialogue squarely hits the mark. History has shown that the Coen brothers produce basically two types of film: quirky and peculiar flicks that are borderline art house (A Serious Man, Barton Fink) and the crowd pleasers designed to return a reasonable box office (Intolerable ...
