Quick Review: A Most Wanted Man (2014)

A MOST WANTED MAN BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLNOVEMBER 4, 2014 Marking the final leading role for Philip Seymour Hoffman, “A Most Wanted Man” is an espionage thriller from the same author as “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” Intricate and complex in design, Hoffman delivers a powerhouse of a performance as Günther Bachmann, adding fervor to an otherwise extremely dense subject matter. Much in the same way … Read More Quick Review: A Most Wanted Man (2014)

Quick Review: About Time (2013)

ABOUT TIME BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLNOVEMBER 13, 2013 “About Time” is sweet and simple. Its simplicity comes from being a film about time travel that never explains the back story but simply defines its premise and locks it in from the start. We never know what the power holds and we learn as we go. We accept that our main character can travel through time … Read More Quick Review: About Time (2013)

Quick Review: Passion (2013)

PASSION BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLSEPTEMBER 7, 2013 Never capitalizing on its strong, power-driven leads, Brian De Palma’s “Passion” is anything but passionate. Remaining surface level for its entire run-time, not only can the film not hold a tone but often falls into a parody of itself. Part office thriller, part crime drama, part halfhearted expose on sexuality, De Palma fails ever actually to come up … Read More Quick Review: Passion (2013)

Proof Review: Morning Glory (2010)

With such a great message for the dreamers of the world, there is little reason not to become enthralled in “Morning Glory”. Not many films can boast the ability to send a message to just about any age group that steps into the theater. “Morning Glory” is not just another chick flick. “Morning Glory” is a solid drama masked by the physical features of a chick flick. Just siting here reflecting about the film makes me smile. Long story short, “Morning Glory” is a success on all fronts.

Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes (2009)

SHERLOCK HOLMES BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 25, 2009 Sherlock Holmes was never so bad ass. Great performances all around. Robert Downey Jr. obviously carries the film to heights I do not believe any other actor could carry such a film. This part was made for him. Mark Strong stuck out as well. I almost wish he could have been in something a little more serious … Read More Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes (2009)
