The Dark Tower Movie Review

If this is tinsel town’s attempt to par down the series of eight books written by Stephen King into a more streamlined presentation, much is lost in transition. It is so thin on character development, that it is almost ghost like. If the intension was to create an on going movie franchise, it is a poor first salvo.   //   In the attempt to not overwhelm the viewer with detail, the filmmakers have relied too much on the audience being familiar with the book series by ...

Kubo an the Two Strings Movie Review

The film uses stop motion animation (with one of the techniques cleverly shown in the end credits), CGI and what one might possibly imagine is hand drawn imagery and looks fantastic. Voiced by an A-list of vocal talent that includes Charlize Theron, Ralph Fiennes and Matthew (put down those bongos) McConaughey, they are given rich text to work with. The story is an out right fantasy voyage and while this is a genre whose charms often elude, this is so inventively accomplished, it draws ...

In the words of traumatised ex-test pilot, Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), we have become caretakers rather than explorers and pioneers. In what appears to ...
