GODZILLA (2014) BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLSEPTEMBER 16, 2014 “an·ti·he·ro — noun: a central character in a story, movie, or drama who lacks conventional heroic attributes.” — Webster Dictionary The term antihero is becoming a staple in the entertainment that we consume at home and in theaters, mainly because a central character with flaws is much more relatable. “Breaking Bad”, “Guardians Of The Galaxy”, and even … Read More Movie Review: Godzilla (2014)

Quick Review: In Secret (2014)

IN SECRET BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLMAY 17, 2014 Sexual repression in the 1860s is not a subject matter often discussed, but in Charlie Stratton’s adaptation of Émile Zola’s scandalous novel “Thérèse Raquin” (1867) titled “In Secret”, this tale is given a shot of rejuvenation thanks to its young and aspiring cast. Elizabeth Olsen is enough reason to view any film these days, with impressive control … Read More Quick Review: In Secret (2014)

GODZILLA // Let it be known that this is how you tease a film. A trend growing in trailers is to give away pivotal moments of the film. Take “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” for example.

Quick Review: Oldboy (2013)

OLDBOY (2013) BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLNOVEMBER 30, 2013 Nowhere near the masterpiece that is Park Chan-wook’s “Oldboy,” Spike Lee gives an admirable attempt at bringing the 2003 cult classic to life in American cinemas.

However, his … Read More Quick Review: Oldboy (2013)

Quick Review: Kill Your Darlings (2013)

KILL YOUR DARLINGS BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLNOVEMBER 24, 2013 The Beat Generation has always been fascinating to me, with the Allen Ginsbergs and Jack Kerouac’s of the world, who can deny this revolution in poetry and self-expression. As the story of Kerouac becomes more and more publicized, I’ve gotten even more invested in his story and have begun to seek out his work. “Kill Your … Read More Quick Review: Kill Your Darlings (2013)

One Minute Review: Liberal Arts (2012)

Liberal Arts Hardly anyone’s best effort, “Liberal Arts” is still a great second feature, written and directed by leading star Josh Radnor. Borrowing many of the same themes of his first directing endeavor, “HappyThankYouMorePlease”, Radnor places himself at the center of a relationship with a college student (Elizabeth Olsen) who is half his age. The emotions are high, the situation is realistic enough, but … Read More One Minute Review: Liberal Arts (2012)

New Trailer: Red Lights – Official Trailer #1

RED LIGHTS / Though Sigourney Weaver doesn’t exactly sell this film for me, Cillian Murphy and Robert De Niro do. Also, after Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Silent House, I think a lot of us were wondering where we’d see Elizabeth Olsen next and this looks like the perfect supporting role for her eerie expertise. Weaver and Murphy play investigators of psychics and … Read More New Trailer: Red Lights – Official Trailer #1
