Mission Impossible 5

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION is a very entertaining summer movie. The actors are good; the stunts are exciting; the cinematography is top notch; and the whole production is highly professional. It may be nearly impossible to follow all the twists and turns in the plot, but in this kind of movie, that doesn’t matter much. Tom Cruise stars for the fifth…

Mr. Holmes

In the new movie called MR. HOLMES, actor Ian McKellen plays Sherlock Holmes as a lonely old man with severe memory loss. The famous detective is known for his intelligent use of rational analysis to solve the most difficult crimes. But he’s somewhat lacking when it comes to human emotion. And this well acted but very slow movie shows how, at the end…

Infinitely Polar Bear

Actor Mark Ruffalo gives an Oscar worthy performance in the new comedy-drama called INFINITELY POLAR BEAR. The strange title notwithstanding, this is a touching and funny little movie based on the true story of a manic-depressive man who takes on the responsibility of raising his two young daughters mostly by himself. First time writer-director Maya Forbes is telling the story of her own…

Testament of Youth

TESTAMENT OF YOUTH is based on the autobiography of a woman who lost her brother, her fiancé and two close friends in World War One. It’s a strong anti-war drama with a great performance from Swedish actress, Alicia Vikander. But its stiff and proper British style plus its somber tone and tragic story make it tough to watch. Alicia Vikander (also…

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL won the Grand Jury prize as well the audience award at the Sundance Film Festival last winter. The movie is a refreshingly creative and very funny coming-of-age story about a bright but immature high school boy whose life changes after he becomes friends with a girl who has terminal cancer. ME AND EARL AND…

Magic Mike & The Overnight

Three years ago, MAGIC MIKE, a Hollywood movie about male entertainers, better known as strippers, was a big hit, and I encouraged people to see it. I can’t do the same for the sequel now in theaters. The first MAGIC MIKE was a hit not just because it was full of eye candy for women but also because it had a…

Inside Out

INSIDE OUT, the new feature length animation from Disney and Pixar, is a hit with audiences and critics alike. It’s a wonderfully clever and wise animation about the emotions inside us all. But the film’s target audience is adults and kids over ten years old. Younger children might enjoy the film, but they won’t really understand much of what’s going on. The…

Love and Mercy

In the new movie called LOVE AND MERCY…two different actors play singer Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys at two different times in his life. Instead of being a conventional biopic that tells Brian Wilson’s life story, LOVE AND MERCY cuts back and forth between the 1960’s when he was creating lots of music but…

Far From the Madding Crowd

The new movie, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD, is fourth film version of a popular 19th century novel by Thomas Hardy. The film offers lush cinematography and superb acting but its storyline is a cross between a romance novel and a soap opera. A strong, independent woman is pursued by three very different men. Which will she choose? British actress Carey…

Aloha

Hollywood director Cameron Crowe calls his new movie entitled ALOHA, a “love letter to Hawaii,” but the movie is not receiving much “aloha” in return. Some people say that Crowe had no right to use that word for his title, and a majority of the nation’s critics are giving the film negative reviews. But I think most audiences will enjoy…
