1917

Saving Private Ryan started like a splatter movie, but 1917 is pure elevated horror while opening on a pastoral field towards the end of World War I. The high concept of one continuous tracking shot allows director Sam Mendes to perfectly pace this suspenseful tale of brave soldiers sent on a mission to save 1,600 men from a… Continue reading 1917

Avengers: Infinity War

First off, Captain America’s cell number has a 678 area code. So I guess that’s pretty cool. That’s about the only new thing of interest we learn about any of our beloved superheroes in the long-awaited Avengers: Infinity War.

Black Mass

From director Scott Cooper, who made the bucolic, bullet-fueled Out of the Furnace, Black Mass may indeed seem like just another biopic of a mobster, but it’s as much of an incremental breakdown of the social pecking order that tarred many an inner city during the mid-20th century with its juvenile sense of loyalty and… Continue reading Black Mass

12 Years a Slave

Those who deny individual rights cannot then claim to be defenders of Constitutional rights. Neither the right nor the left understands this. This has led to the modern contradiction called racism where a man is judged not by his own actions but by the actions of his collective ancestors, both black and white. In the… Continue reading 12 Years a Slave

Star Trek Into Darkness

For that reason, and to avoid any spoilers, I’m not going to discuss the storyline or its villains other than to… Continue reading Star Trek Into Darkness
