#REVIEW – “jOBS”
When we think of Steve Jobs, likely the first thing we recall is him being the revered Co-Founder and CEO of the Apple Inc. Empire - a beloved Visionary. David Fincher’s The Social Network in 2010 really raised the bar high in terms of Technology-related Biopics and it is undeniable there is a bit of an overlap thematically in this effort from Director Joshua Michael Stern. jOBS recalls the dramas, underhanded dealings, tantrums and politics behind his ascension as one of the most ...
#REVIEW: “WE’RE THE MILLERS”
Review by Jonathan Godfrey for Mr. Will Wong
For the past four years Warner Brothers has been hard at work resuscitating the R-rated Comedy. With the ebb and flow of politically correct rhetoric most studios have been hesitant to step on toes for laughter’s sake. Luckily they've been willing to play Trinculo, inspiring merriment while the tempest rages on. Their latest routine for a Restricted Audience is titled, We’re the Millers. From the Director of DodgeBall (Rawson Marshall Thurber), ...
#REVIEW – “BLUE JASMINE”
You rarely can go wrong with a Woody Allen Film. The iconic Writer/Filmmaker's uncanny ability to get inside the heads of his Characters is remarkable and latest Drama Blue Jasmine is no exception, essentially serving as an early Oscars Vehicle for the superb Cate Blanchett who really gives it her all here.
After a crisis forces her to build a new life, glamorous New York Socialite Jasmine (Blanchett) reunites with her Sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco, disrputing the flow of her ...
We all have our fears about what the future holds with the imminent dangers of Global Warming, hence the possibility of a Shark Attack combined with a Tornado is highly plausible. I mean, it happened in made-for-Television Disaster Flick, Sharknado, where we watch in horror as sharks fall from the sky, spurting out from all directions, attacking innocent people in a flooded Los Angeles. It could totally happen. Like, really. And it breaks my heart that this is a reality we could face ...
#REVIEW: “FRUITVALE STATION”
Easily one of my favourite Films thus far in 2013, the compelling Fruitvale Station finally gets a release after months of anticipation following widespread acclaim at both the Cannes and Sundance Film Festivals. Reviewers at my Screening were so moved that a majority of them sat in the dark as the credits rolled, allowing for a moment to regain their composure.
The Drama written and directed by Ryan Coogler is based on the events surrounding the final day of Oscar Grant's (Michael B. Jordan) ...
#REVIEW: “THE TO DO LIST”
Taunted for being a Virgin, Class Valedictorian Brandy Clark (Aubrey Plaza) is determined to gain sexual experience before she heads off to College in the Fall. Infatuated with guitar-playing, muscle Hunk Rusty Waters (Scott Porter), Brandy is fixated on making him her ultimate sexual Conquest. Along the way, she gets the assistance of a few willing male Friends, each helping her cross items one-by-one off her "To Do List".
Maggie Carey (Funny or Die) writes and directs this raunchy ...
#REVIEW – SELENA GOMEZ – “STARS DANCE”
Stars Dance marks Actress/Pop Star Selena Gomez's Solo Debut sans the help of her Band The Scene, the eleven track Collection having her pick-up in similar territory to where she left off with excellent 2011 Pop Gem, When the Sun Goes Down.
Several Heavyweights lend a hand on Production here and although my impression is that the Tracks just aren't quite as infectious as her last effort, this Disc artistically has Gomez taking several risks, letting go a couple extra notches as she grows ...
#REVIEW: ROBIN THICKE – “BLURRED LINES”
I don't often review Albums, but when I do, it is because it is remarkable. I've always enjoyed Robin Thicke's Vocals but one thing that has prevented me from becoming a bigger Fan always was that I felt his Music geared to a demographic outside my Pop Sensibilities. Blurred Lines is his sixth studio Disc and this Album for me, is a near-Masterpiece. Thicke successfully takes his signature Soul, embracing the Electronic-Pop trend which has been dominating the airwaves for the past few years ...
#REVIEW: “THE LOOK OF LOVE”
Director Michael Winterbottom reunites with Thespian Steve Coogan once again, the Duo known best for their collaboration in 2002's 24 Hour Party People. The Look of Love is a nudity, alcohol and Cocaine-filled look at British Entrepreneur Paul Raymond's rise to fortune, thanks to an Empire built on the UK's first-ever Strip Club, eventually developing into well-known Publications like Men Only, Escort, Club International and Mayfair.
Perhaps more a nonlinear look at Raymond's ...
#REVIEW: “THE CONJURING”
Review by: Sarah Gopaul for Mr. Will Wong
Making a good Horror Movie does not happen by accident. It takes a particular talent to grab hold of an audience and not let go for the length of a Film. It's not just about hiding monsters in the dark. There are many elements that combine to make a frightening Film and in The Conjuring, Director James Wan demonstrates he knows how to use each of them to his advantage.
In 1971, Roger and Caroline Perron (Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor) invested in a ...
