Movie Review: Martha Marcy May Marlene

Movie Review: Martha Marcy May Marlene

Question: What happens to you if you were abandoned as a child, end up not having a proper upbringing, and in search of wanting someone to love you and take care of you? That’s easy – you’re vulnerable and easy prey for those who like to manipulate and control others. Martha Marcy May Marlene explores one woman’s experience in […]

Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Question: How often does a sequel come out as good as or better than the first? It’s rare, I know, but Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows might have just done it. I really enjoyed Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes (2009), so much so that I have probably seen it a half a dozen times. Sure, it may have been for […]

Movie Review: Midnight in Paris

Movie Review: Midnight in Paris

Question: Have you ever gone to a film reluctantly? A lot of times you think the movie isn’t your cup of tea, right? I had to use that expression because my mother wanted to go see the latest Owen Wilson film because she likes him. Yes, my mouth dropped open when she said that. My mom […]

Movie Review: Certified Copy

Question: Do you ever find it hard not to relate to or be affected by a film? I do, all the time. Some make me laugh and I will randomly giggle when thinking about certain moments of the story. Some make me cry and I will shed a tear if I allow any memories in. […]

Movie Review: Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Well, it’s the beginning of a new year and it’s time to look back and reflect, so why not watch a documentary on cave paintings that are 35,000 years old? I am serious. Well, I watched Werner Herogz’s film, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, about the discovery of the oldest and best preserved cave paintings: Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Caves and really enjoyed […]

Review of   ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’

Review of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’

This is my first venture into reviewing a movie.  To give you a little inkling of what meager credentials I bring to this endeavor.   I read close to 4 to 8 books a month. I read 6 newspapers, such as Denver Post, New York Times, San Jose Mercury News, Al Jazeer, BBC and CNN on-line […]

One year and counting…

One year and counting…

WOW! I can’t believe a year ago today I started reviewing movies. And what a year it’s been. Many may not know that this was just supposed to be an experiment – a learning tool for me. I was not planning on becoming a movie reviewer at all. In fact I wanted to change careers […]

Movie Review: We Bought a Zoo

Movie Review: We Bought a Zoo

Question: What would you do if your daughter says to you when looking at a group of people having a good time, “Their happiness is too loud”?  First your heart would sink and then you would do anything, even if it was considered crazy, to make sure your kids are happy again. Months ago I posted the […]
