New Trailer: Murder On The Orient Express – Official Trailer #1

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS || Remaking the 1974 Sidney Lumet classic Murder On The Orient Express, Kenneth Branagh is not only directing, he is also sitting in the director’s chair. Having not seen the original, I am assuming Johnny Depp’s character is the one that gets murdered, seeing as he is not among those sitting on the trailer when the detective (played by … Read More New Trailer: Murder On The Orient Express – Official Trailer #1

Movie Review: Transcendence (2014)

TRANSCENDENCE BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJULY 24, 2014 Give Wally Pfister a break. In his directorial debut, Pfister was placed against impossible odds. Having been Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer for around fourteen years, the man was being compared to one of the best directors of our time. With Nolan’s name almost front and center in the marketing and with everyone hoping some of Nolan’s thought-provoking talent would … Read More Movie Review: Transcendence (2014)

Quick Review: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

WHAT’S EATING GILBERT GRAPE BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLNOVEMBER 24, 2013 Before anyone like David Gordon Green in the film industry was making the strong dramatic independent films of our current generation, there were film-makers like Lasse Hallström who directed “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” that delivers on the same level as those current flock of off-beat dramas. Featuring a much younger Johnny Depp, who had already … Read More Quick Review: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

Quick Review: The Lone Ranger (2013)

THE LONE RANGER BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJULY 7, 2013 Overly long and tonally challenged, “The Lone Ranger” is still a visually stunning and eloquent Western that suffers from emotional shifts and a run time of almost three hours. Not completely sold on Armie Hammer as a frontman, his Lone Ranger interpretation is slightly convincing, but not entirely enjoyable. There is little charm or threat presented … Read More Quick Review: The Lone Ranger (2013)

2012 Oscars Challenge: [19] Rango & Animated Feature

[27 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[22 DAYS TO OSCARS] Without “The Adventures of Tintin” in contention, “Rango” basically has a lock on this category. Unless “Puss In Boots” can rally an upset, “Rango” is the odds-on favorite. Since “The Adventures of Tintin” won the Golden Globe award in this same category, there is no drawing a favorite from that. Personally, my pick would have … Read More 2012 Oscars Challenge: [19] Rango & Animated Feature

Movie Review: Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

PIRATED OF THE CARIBBEAN:ON STRANGER TIDES BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 11, 2011 For being a pirate film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” contains just about the bare minimum of pirating lore to get by. With very few ships and even less swordplay, it is not the best film of the franchise, but it’s not the worst. Like “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s … Read More Movie Review: Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

For Your Consideration 2011: “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”

Every year that there is a “Pirates of the Caribbean” film, it gets nominated for Academy Awards. Each year the nominations get less and less and each year the films never win (save for “Dead Man’s Chest”). Not much will change this year, I am afraid. “The Curse of the Black Pearl” had four nominations for Johnny Depp, Makeup, and Sound Editing/Mixing, “Dead Man’s … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”

For Your Consideration 2011: “Hugo”

Martin Scorsese as director makes “Hugo” a huge attention-grabber, however, as an action-adventure children’s film, the film does not hold a huge chance of being nominated for anything like Best Picture. That being said, from the trailer alone, “Hugo” could easily pull off nominations for visual effects, art direction, and directing. FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN ALL CATEGORIES including BEST PICTURE** Produced by Johnny Depp, … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “Hugo”

For Your Consideration 2011: “Rango”

Easily one of the best animated films of 2011, “Rango” is also one of the eighteen animated films up for consideration for the Academy Awards. I wholly expect the film to get a Best Animated Feature Film nomination if nothing else. FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN ALL CATEGORIES INCLUDING BEST ANIMATED FEATURE & BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR** Produced by Gore Verbinski • Graham King … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “Rango”

Movie Review: Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)

The third film in the original trilogy, “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” takes everything that I loved about the first film and brings it back to the level of grandeur that was lacking in the second installment. The performances are perfectly on key and the constant side changes keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The ‘Pirates’ franchise succeeds highly in creating deep and interesting characters and I believe that is what keeps you coming back. Barbossa and Davey Jones rank highly on my favorite characters of all time, showing treachery and villainy, but also showing compassion and humor. The underlying love stories also build off of the first two films nicely and fill in the gaps between action and strategery.

Movie Review: Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006)

More so a vehicle to launch the third film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” brings much less to the table than “Curse of the Black Pearl”. Without “Dead Man’s Chest”, however, the third film (“At World’s End”) would not pack as big of a punch. This makes “Dead Man’s Chest” a much less desirable film on its own but makes the trilogy, as a whole, much stronger.

Movie Review: Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl (2003)

For sheer scale, intricate plot, and in-depth character development, it is hard to top “Pirates of the Caribbean”. “Curse of the Black Pearl” is the perfect first film for a trilogy (soon to be franchise). Johnny Depp lands in one of his greatest roles while Geoffrey Rush becomes one of my favorite characters to ever grace the screen. Every young boy dreams of pirates when they are young and this film is everything I dreamed it would be.
