PRIDE REVIEW

A film that should have taken more pride in it's story and cast. Solidly acted, well written but a case of hype helping an easygoing biopic that seemed to hinder as it reached it's conclusion. To be honest, I think it may be a sign of the time. Despite it's subject matter appearing "controversial", it … Continue reading PRIDE REVIEW

THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY REVIEW

I wish it was done in 100 minutes. An easygoing feel good movie that is light on the drama but heavy on the cheese. Nice to look at but a little overcooked. Enough food punnery! Let's tuck in. It's Chef meets Slumdog Millionaire in a nutshell. The opening quickly establishes that from a young age, … Continue reading THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY REVIEW

THE GUEST REVIEW

IF I STAY REVIEW

I should have stayed at home is . . . what I thought I would be saying after watching this. But surprisingly this . . . uh . . . surprised me. The corny coma chick flick meets the cantankerous cynic of a critic and for all my griping (which there may be a smidgeon), … Continue reading IF I STAY REVIEW

MILLION DOLLAR ARM REVIEW

Disney + Don Draper = one easygoing sports movie. Jon Hamm takes the helm as J.B. Bernstein, a sports agent who stages an unconventional recruitment strategy to get talented Indian cricket players to play Major League Baseball. From the opening speech with JB attempting to sign a major player to his firm, the pitch and … Continue reading MILLION DOLLAR ARM REVIEW
