On My Watchlist: Helix, The Europa Report, Apollo 18, and the Golden Globes

January 16, 2014

Is anyone watching Helix? I was definitely intrigued by the trailers, which seemed to suggest zombies in outer space. I am impressed enough by the pilot that I’ll watch this week. It’s nice to see Billy Campbell in a star turn again. I had to look up Jordan Hayes, who plays 26-year old genius Dr. […]

Film Review: Blue Jasmine, Philomena, One Chance, 12 Years A Slave

December 3, 2013

Blue Jasmine is the sort of movie I should love. I’m a personal finance/ business news junkie, and this film tells the story of the scorned wife-turned-widow of a Bernie Madoff-like financier. Cate Blanchett puts in a great performance, and Alex Baldwin phones it home playing every other role he’s played recently, except here he’s […]

On My Watchlist: Nebraska, Kill Your Darlings, Fifth Estate, Fruitvale Station

It’s a well-acted ensemble movie, but way too indulgent for me. I don’t really want to spend 2 hours watching two adult […]

On My Watch List: The Butler, Rush, Gravity and Captain Phillips

October 9, 2013

The Butler was good like Luna bars are good (i.e., super tasty but you won’t mistake this for dessert). I appreciated The Butler, but didn’t enjoy it. Of course, the subject matter is super difficult to tackle and the film did an admirable job here, successfully navigating the delicate line between being too preachy and […]
