Erotica Movie Review of the Trois Triology

This month I am focusing on a triple review of the Trois trilogy. Trois one, two and three are all very provocative stories of sexual escapades and suspense – some more better than the other. Each starring African American actors. And each movie presents highly erotic sex scenes and interesting stories that are engaging and […]

Jesus Of Nazareth (Movie Review)

Since Thomas Edison’s invention of the modern cinema, countless filmmakers have endeavored to produce a moving picture that accurately chronicles the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth. Aside from Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, which chronicled only a part of the life and crucifixion of Jesus, Franco Zeffirelli’s Jesus of Nazareth is […]

Amadeus Movie Review – Starring F. Murray Abraham, Tom Hulce, and Elizabeth Berridge

“Amadeus” is the incredible tragic tale of the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as well as his death at the hands of his nemesis Antoni Salieri. The storyline, acting, and cinematography are all wonderful. The film is based on the 1979 play of the same title. The movie begins in an insane asylum in the […]

"Unplanned" Movie Review

I’m glad Abby’s story was told. I wouldn’t take pre-teen children to see it but I would take 16 to 18 year-old boys and girls to see it after discussing it with them first and afterward. It is graphic but does tell the reality of the topic. Before ultrasound technology, people assumed a fetus was […]

It is said that Crabb lived among […]

Movie Review: Suing the Devil (2012) (Not Rated)

The Antichrist Gets Served To watch Suing the Devil is to witness the birth of a cult classic. Mark my words: You will someday see it in midnight movie houses, and people, in all likelihood dressed as their favorite characters, will wait in line to see it just for the giddy thrill of making fun […]

Ei Taxi – A Short Film Review

Much worthy of its three laurels (Festival de Cannes, Mumbai Shorts International Film Festival, Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival), Ei Taxi is a short film with which anyone with the slightest literary appreciation can fall in love. The film holds particular relevance in today’s Indian society as it follows the guilty subconscious of a perverted […]

Movie Review – Ladrones a Domicilio

Last night we went and saw the new Angel Muniz (Estudio Quitasueno) flick, “Ladrones a Domicilio”. It was another quite impressive Dominican movie, this one more adventurous than previous efforts such as “Macho de Mujer”, “Sanky Panky” and others…I would liken it to a “Lock, stock, 2 smoking barrels” type deal, just with some Dominican […]

National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation (Movie Review)

One of the funniest movies of 1997, Vegas Vacation lives up to the high standard of comic relief expected from this ongoing series by National Lampoon. Although on the low end of hilarity when compared to Vacation, European Vacation, and Christmas Vacation, the film is nonetheless a non-stop, belly-laughing comedy in its own right. After […]

‘Year One’ Movie Review

Let’s face it; a Jack Black film is hardly going to be unpredictable. One can imagine the pitch: loveable overweight loser (Black) falls for unobtainable girl, but (and here’s the twist boys and girls) how about this time we make him a caveman (how apt) who, with his best friend, goes on a quest that […]

Movie Review – "That Day" [1 Journee] Is the Mosaic Mystery About a Dysfunctional Family

“That Day” [“1 Journée”] is the story about a dysfunctional family and how one haphazard encounter becomes the turning point towards a new beginning. It’s a convoluted mosaic, a mystery actually, that slowly takes shape and reveals much about the perplexity, sadness and irony of their disconnected lives. It is an insightful film driven by […]

Becoming Jane – Movie Review

BOOKOPINION REVIEW: Let me just say this right off the bat (in case you were unaware), Jane Austen is the greatest author of all time. I suppose some might dare to call that an opinion, but we Janeites of the world know far better. At this point, one or two of you might be thinking, […]

Jackie Chan’s "Gorgeous" Movie Review

I believe that “Gorgeous” is one of the very best films in Jackie Chan’s career. With the guidance of Leonard Ho, Jackie’s long time mentor, Jackie confined himself into playing the roles of cops, thieves, and many other characters mostly in the action and martial arts genres. After Leonard’s death in 1997, Jackie felt a […]

I’ve been missing my Kiefer Sutherland, so I was very excited to see “The Right Temptation” on cable. The story centers on Derian McCall (Rebecca De Mornay) a private detective hired by Anthea Farrow-Smith (Dana Delany) to spy on her potentially wayward husband Michael Farrow-Smith (Kiefer Sutherland). Derian follows Michael around for a week and […]
