hamlet 2000 review

  A couple of years ago, I was flipping through Netflix and came across Hamlet (2000), which stars, of all people, Ethan Hawke as Hamlet. Hamlet was always my least favourite of the Bardís plays–and over the course of my life, Iíve been dragged to see many. Live, and on film. A bit bored, I […]

The Blues Brothers, starring Saturday Night Live legends Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, is not the best movie ever made, but it may be the most fun to watch film ever released. I am reviewing the 25th Anniversary DVD Version which includes one […]

The Interview

Interview Featured

The greatest problem of The Interview is that all the funniest comedy transpired before the curtains were lowered. Not Rogen’s worst comedy but not his best either. Passing moments of hilarity but with a lot of flab in between.

I thought that I had already watched the two best movies of the year in Birdman and Boyhood, but after watching this beautiful and haunting film, Iím not so sure. Ida was set in the drab and joyless country of Poland, around 1962, at the height of the Cold War. Ida was a young woman […]
