Movie Reviews
'Jurassic World': Just When You Thought it was Safe
So here we mere mortals are again, paying no mind to those before us who messed with Mother Nature and unleashed gosh knows what wrath.

'Far From the Madding Crowd': Cinema Sanctuary
Beneath what initially may seem like fuddy-duddy prattle to young viewers shouts the realities of their own generation: Talent is nice, but money and class talk.

'Tomorrowland': Mediocre Expectations
It is a rather wispily imagined locale, dotted with zooming urban aircraft, swirling sky roadways and vague, unconvincing backdrops.

'Mad Max: Fury Road': Insane Is More Like it
Suffice it to note, whereas some dramas are character driven, the eccentric personae here make "Mad Max" No. 4 oddity driven.

'5 Flights Up': A Cut Above


'Avengers: Age of Ultron': Had Me Showing My Age
So the short review is, unless you're a diehard fan or video games are your second language, save yourself.

'Ex Machina': It's Alive! It's Alive! Maybe
This includes much philosophical pondering: What exactly is human consciousness? And while we're at, what's the secret of life?

'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2': Bargain Basement Bull
It's dependent on its loyal audience's acceptance of mediocrity for the sake of all too few laughs.

'Danny Collins': Idol for the Ages
Supplying both affirmation and eloquently imparted nostalgia, the film chooses for its protagonist the iconic figure of a generation: the rock star.

'Furious 7': Makes Six Too Many
The only question to answer with each succeeding issue is, "Just how much more insanely ludicrous is this one?"

'Deli Man': Knows From Chopped Liver
The film is as much an homage to American opportunity as it is to deli men.

'Cinderella': A Shoo-In
Director Branagh beautifully ensconces the fable in settings artistically analogous to the literary treasure's interpretation.

'Chappie': My Fair Robot
It is again that ominously close near-future and droids are being used in Johannesburg as semi-indestructible complements to the police force.

'Focus': Deceptively Entertaining
Like the kid who knows Gramps isn't really pulling quarters from the ears, we delight in the bamboozlement all the same.

'Still Alice': A Sadness to Remember
Each major stage in the disorder's progression is masterfully depicted: the effects on self, family and how society deals with it.
