Film Review: Don Jon

Joseph Gordon-Levitt wrote, directed and – buff to the bone – starred in this romantic comedy. Which is smart, because smokin’ hot Scarlett Johansson played his gum-chewing love interest.

Film Review: Ain’t Them Bodies Saints

Director David Lowery sets his sights on a continuing cinematic fascination: small town Texas. Lovers Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck are the centerpiece of this consideration of life in a closed, suffocating culture.

Film Review: The Spectacular Now

Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley are marvelous in this surprisingly realistic take on being teenagers in splintered families.

Film Review: Closed Circuit

In a era when more people feel they are being watched and followed more of the time, an interesting film about paranoia at the highest levels of government is certainly timely. Closed Circuit is certainly that.

Film Review: Elysium

Jodie Foster is Minister of Security on a space station utopia called Elysium. Matt Damon has been radiated and needs to get their from the dystopia that is Earth in the future. A sci-fi move ensues.

Film Review: The World’s End

You’ve done the Bambi Walk. Now see what happens when some old school blokes, now grown up, do it in England. Edgar Wright, responsible for Shaun of the Dead, a film as clever as its title, gives a skewed rendition of a night on the town.
