Quick Review: Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

DALLAS BUYERS CLUB BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLNOVEMBER 17, 2013 “Dallas Buyers Club” is a transformation for all those involved. The only film of director Jean-Marc Vallée that I’ve seen is “The Young Victoria,” which garnered minimal Oscar attention a few years ago, and to which I enjoyed, but his latest endeavor is so much deeper and rich and a passion for this story breathes from … Read More Quick Review: Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

Movie Review: Management (2009)

MANAGEMENT BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 17, 2011 “Management” is a low-budget wonder with a borderline big-budget cast. I am convinced that Jennifer Aniston can sell just about anything since her days on “Friends.” She’s gorgeous yet adorable, witty and intelligent, and in control.

Movie Review: Rescue Dawn (2007)

Rescue Dawn strikingly comes off like Francis Ford Coppola’s paragon, Apocalypse Now, delving the audience into a world they do not completely understand, nor that the characters understand, as they trod along relentless. Even the dark feel of the film sheers through its big budget bravado. Christian Bale proves why he is the big name that he has become today. Rescue Dawn is completely unlike any of Herzog’s recent films.

DIARY OF A WIMPY KID BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLAUGUST 6, 2010 Send me back to sixth grade, at twelve years old, and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” would have been my favorite film. My admiration for the film, it appears, even resonates as an adult. The heart of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” is in the right place, with humor and friendship playing the biggest … Read More Movie Review: Diary Of A Wimpy Kid (2010)

Movie Review: A Perfect Getaway (2009)

A PERFECT GETAWAY BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 29, 2009 A visually stimulating, subpar suspense-thriller. From the start of the film, you know that you are in for scenic Hawaiian views with twists and turns, both literally and metaphorically. The film wastes no time delving into the rigamarole of the human perception. Almost in a tropical version of Clue, you try to decipher who the killers … Read More Movie Review: A Perfect Getaway (2009)
