‘1917’ a compelling cinematic feat

Directed by Sam Mendes and co-written with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, 1917 is a straightforward but wildly creative drama set over one day in World War I. Starring George MacKay in a memorable lead role that increases in intensity over two hours, the visually-fascinating film also features Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Scott, Colin Firth and Richard Madden in […]

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE (2017): Review by Brigid Presecky and Georgiana Presecky

Screenwriter Jane Goldman and director Matthew Vaughn bring their charming British spy franchise Kingsman stateside for an equally whacky if less original sequel. With a few too many villains and seemingly wasted big stars, Kingsman: The Golden Circle still puts a fun spin on the spy genre. (GEP: 4/5, BKP: 3.5/5 ) Review by Managing […]

Full Title = Kingsman: The Secret Service A throwback to the mid-60s when Sean Connery made James Bond movies so much fun to watch. Colin Firth is terrific as “Galahad”–in his best “shaken not stirred” mode–teaching young “Eggsy Unwin” (Taron Egerton) the tricks of his trade. With help from Michael Caine in the M role, […]

AUSTENLAND

American 30something (Keri Russell) travels to Merrie Olde England so she can wear Regency gowns & pretend to live in a Jane Austen novel… if only for a week. Is this the female version of Fantasy Baseball Camp??? A cute idea badly bungled by director Jerusha Hess & co-screenwriter Shannon Hale who refuse to populate […]

ARTHUR NEWMAN

Unbelievably excruciating film by first time director Dante Ariola based on a screenplay by Becky Johnson. Colin Firth as “Arthur” intends to create a fresh start for himself, but then he picks up damaged girl (Emily Blunt in faux Audrey Hepburn mode) as a traveling companion. Egregious waste of time & talent. Click HERE for FF2 […]
