Movie Reviews: Life and Power Rangers

Life

Cary, NC – Life tells the familiar story of astronauts aboard the international space station who discover life on Mars and get more than they bargained for. Director Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) uses his excellent cast including Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation) and tight direction to make this otherwise standard sci-fi tale a cut above the rest.

Lori’s Blog: Miss Representation – Free Women’s History Month Movie

Cary, NC – March has traditionally been the time when I write about “Women’s History” – our struggle for the vote and women’s suffrage, or our lack of representation in government or lacking a seat at the table of our private sector companies.

Movie Reviews: Kong: Skull Island and Get Out

Cary, NC – Kong: Skull Island is a monstrously good time at the movies. This latest iteration of King Kong wastes no time in getting to the good stuff, fills the screen with likable and memorable characters and features some truly insane action beats. That’s definitely a compliment by the way. Read more

Movie Reviews: Logan and Toni Erdmann

Logan

Cary, NC – Logan is not your typical comic book movie. Director James Mangold (The Wolverine, Walk The Line) has made a classic western/family drama that just so happens to feature superheroes. The result is a fantastic last at bat for Hugh Jackman as the titular mutant character, giving perhaps the best performance of his career and a chance to go out on top. Read more

Lori’s Blog: Documentary Film Screening

Cary, NC – Last night I had the opportunity to see a thought provoking documentary by Zach Galifianakis called, “Democracy for Sale.”

Yeah, I know, you don’t think of Zach of The Hangover Movie fame as being the that kind of guy, but I have to say I was impressed.

Movie Reviews: A Cure For Wellness and Elle

A Cure For Wellness

Cary, NC – Director Gore Verbinski (The RingPirates of the Carribean) returns to the horror genre with A Cure For Wellness. The film is filled with atmosphere and terrifying imagery, and while it can’t quite stick the landing, credit must be given for Verbinski trying something so daring and dark on a big studio level.
