"Noah": A Breathtaking Dystopian Interpretation  | read this item

I went to see this movie expecting to see a traditional biblical movie and was totally blown away with Darren Aronofsky’s interpretation. Noah is not a “spiritual” movie. Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” was a very spiritual movie. What you see is the cold hard ‘facts’ – according to Aronofsky. It is a dystopian […]

"The Wolf Of Wall Street" DVD Review  | read this item

The Wolf of Wall Street is a funny, irreverent look at corporate greed. The immortal words of the fictional character Gordon Gekko come to mind: “Greed is Good.” Apparently, on Wall Street not only is greed good, it’s God! Scorsese does a terrific job at capturing the excessive nature of Wall Street back in the […]

American Hustle boasts a stellar cast including my favorite actor, Christian Bale. However, I must confess, I found the first half of the movie extremely boring, as did a few movie patrons, some of whom walked out. I, however, decided to stick it out and I’m glad that I did. Christian Bale, as usual, gives […]

If you desire a change of pace from the usually cinematic blockbusters, then check out Scott Cooper’s, Out of the Furnace.  You may remember Mr. Cooper’s Academy Award nominated movie Crazy Heart starring Jeff Bridges, who received an Oscar in 2009 for best actor in that film.
