Going in Style

Release: Friday, April 7, 2017  [Theater] Written by: Theodore Melfi Directed by: Zach Braff Geriatric crime comedy starring three Academy Award winners and directed by former Scrubs star Zach Braff is a bit of an underachiever. Even that might be giving this, a remake of Martin Brest's 1979 caper of the same name, too much credit because I'm unconvinced this movie … Continue reading Going in Style

Release: Friday, March 4, 2016 [Netflix] Written by: Creighton Rothenberger; Katrin Benedikt; Christian Gudegast; Chad St. John Directed by: Babak Najafi London Has Fallen was a theatrical release I happened to miss out on and I am glad for having saved that money.

It might seem dismissive to rule this summer's latest sci-fi … Continue reading Lucy

Release: Friday, April 18, 2014 [Theater] Lol, uh. . .wut? Well, this WAS supposed to be the 'don't-give-up-yet-on-Johnny-Depp' movie, one that would give the colorful thespian room to breathe without his usual cloak of weirdness. . .no Captain Jack Sparrow accent, no scissor hands and no crazy Tonto face paint this time. In a cruel twist of fate, … Continue reading Transcendence

Last Vegas

Release: Friday, November 1, 2013 [Theater] In Vegas, high-priced hookers are a dime a dozen; senior citizens crashing parties, hooking up with girls half their age and going on a bender -- eh, not so much. Those types are a little harder to find. Fortunately, four such individuals may be found parading around the infamous Strip … Continue reading Last Vegas
