The Innocents Movie Review

In the horror genre, few have said more by saying less than writer/director Eskil Vogt with his latest work The Innocents. Its slight and somewhat inconsequential presentation helps to submerge real menace under the surface. This approach allows the unease to accumulate in an excruciating manner. Ida (Rakel Lenora Fløttum) moves to a nondescript housing tower in Norway with her parents and autistic sister Anna (Alva Brynsmo Ramstad). The tower is sparse of inhabitants as most families are ...

Firestarter Movie Review

It never seems to find its comfort zone with its attempt to mix cheesy horror from a distant time and a modern ethos that favours arresting visual effects. What we get is underwhelming imagery that more singes than burns and actors that are left out in the cold.   //   TV actor Ryan Kiera Armstrong reprises Barrymore’s role of Charlie McGee, the girl with flames at her fingertips with some effectiveness. She starts the innocent but things quickly get out of hand as her ...

Operation Mincemeat Movie Review

Operation Mincemeat was the code name given to a spy scam to trick Hitler and the Nazis into thinking that the allies were going to invade Greece instead of the intended target of Sicily. This was accomplished by planting a body, intended to be perceived as a downed aviator with false documents.   //   The plan is unveiled with a meticulous attention to detail and makes you rack your brain trying to come up with elements that they might have missed. The plan runs into ...

Father Stu Movie Review

Mark Wahlberg plays Stuart Long, a lad who grew up in Montana and endured more than his fair share of tragedy. He lost his younger brother Stephen at age four to meningococcus and then developed inclusion body myositis, a muscle disorder similar to Lou Gehrig’s disease.   //   He overcame these trials to become a Catholic priest before his death at fifty years of age. The film oversimplifies his life story and removes some of the more outlandish elements in pursuit of ...
