Entertainment Magazine On Line
(December 25, 2016) The movie, Fences, is without doubt a magnificent
piece of theater but, when played out ‘intacta’ on the silver screen, it
becomes a hybrid that even the most devoted fans of Washington and
Davis might find exhausting.
(December 2016) A nun, a pot smoking mom, a recluse and his over-sexed
girlfriend are great fodder for a wacky comedy but, unfortunately, the
filmmakers opted for a serious drama instead.
The opening sequence of Nocturnal Animals
(November 2016) shows a naked woman shaking her morbidly obese body for
a lot longer than is comfortable to watch. Obviously, the filmmaker’s
not a fan of audience focus groups or he would have discovered, not only
that grotesque bodies don’t do it for most people, but also that style
can’t hide a lack of depth and convoluted storytelling kills tension
"SEIGE AT JADOTVILLE
– the Fighting Irish" (October 2016) This David and Goliath story
unravels against a backdrop of international intrigue, corrupt
politicians, inept military command, and it’s all set on a stage covered
in red dust from copper mines buried deep in the heart of the Congo.
It’s thrilling, fascinating and peppered with the subverted humor that
only the Irish can create. What is shocking about this film is that it
is, in fact, a true story.
"Amanda Knox" (October 2016) One of the reasons Netflix financed this documentary could possibly be that Amanda Knox narrates in person.
"Eye in the Sky"
is a story of war at its most chilling; its most humane; its most
deadly and its most compelling. Every decision that the characters make
can be challenged with a “But if you do that…….” Once a decision is
made, that too can be challenged with the same warning, and so on, until
we realize there is no good answer.
"Dark Shadows Stars"
from Original Series Appear in New Dark Shadows Movie. Some old TV
shows cannot stay dead and buried and the ABC horror soap opera Dark
Shadows (1966-1971) is a key example. It underwent various
reincarnations, from movies, House of Dark Shadows (1970), Night of Dark
Shadows (1971), to the short-lived NBC revival series (January to March
1991), and to additional productions.
is an adventure story about coming of age. It’s set in the late 1960s.
The two main characters decide that before going to college or into
military service they want one more adventure. They want one more week
of joy before they have to grow up.
Interview with filmmakers of the film Homeless, Tif Hassler (producer) and Clay Hassler (director, cinematographer, co-writer).
This is “art house” movie-making but with
meaningless dialogue in place of introspection, surreal sequences
instead of theme, and pretentious vinaigrettes that replace the ‘slice
of life’ synonymous to that genre. So it’s art house, without the art,
and not much pleasure to watch. Continue reading about "Youth."
true story about a transgender man suffers badly from overkill. At two
hours, it’s too long; the music is too dramatic; the actors try too hard
and there’s much too much crying. However, it’s a cleverly titled piece
and the subject matter is interesting enough to make it just about
worth watching. But only just. Read about The Danish Girl.

Michael Moore's Where to Invade Next starts
off in Italy and then catapults to Germany, Denmark, France, Finland,
Norway, Iceland, Lisbon. Tunisia, Slovenia and Sweden, covering topics
from school lunches to capital punishment. Each time Moore leaves a
country, he presents his host with an American flag and, by the look on
the hosts’ faces, they’re as confused as me about the reason for this
In Stardust & Moonbeams, Will
gets more than he bargains for when he asks Beth to pose for him. Beth
knows she’s on to something when she asks Will to pose for her. These
are the modern times of 1928—and she’s a feminist, after all. Watch video trailers.
