READY PLAYER ONE Review

READY PLAYER ONE Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Floods the senses with dazzling imagery. But it reaches overload and then something extraordinary happens. A scene so unique, so bizarre that it knocks off being eaten by Godzilla. I have not read Ernest Cline’s apparently best-selling novel Ready Player One. I have never played video games. I did live through […]

THE COMMUTER Review

THE COMMUTER Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Too implausible, too convoluted to be a serious thriller but Neeson is all in and director Collet-Serra has obvious talent. But who can dope out the plot? When I lived in Westchester County and didn’t want to fight traffic and then squander my monthly voodoo points on […]

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD Review

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Atmospheric thriller from the great Ridley Scott and the perfect Getty – Christopher Plummer. Its his movie. He dominates it. J. Paul Getty doesn’t even make the Top Ten richest people in history. That honorific goes to Mansa Musa (1280-1337). Musa was the King of Timbuktu.(1) He built his empire […]

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Review

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Enthralling and unforgettable. Yet, reenforces society’s belief that the penis is ugly. Could physically gifted Armie Hammer has an ugly penis? I am reading The Origins and Role of Same-Sex Relations in Human Societies by James Neill. One-quarter way through this remarkable work, I can only do it grave injustice […]

THE  KILLING OF THE SACRED DEER Review

THE KILLING OF THE SACRED DEER Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Brilliant, unusual thriller by a masterful director. There are two unwatchable scenes in Yorgos Lanthimos’ THE  KILLING OF THE SACRED DEER. The first one starts the movie off – up-close open heart surgery. Cincinnati cardiologist Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) and anesthesiologist Matthew (Bill Camp) have finished surgery […]

BLADE RUNNER 2049 Movie Review

BLADE RUNNER 2049 Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Impressive and dazzling and takes nothing away from the iconic original. Due to the horrific event in Las Vegas on Sunday evening, Warner Bros. canceled the press screening for BR 2049 on Monday. For the re-scheduled press screening on Tuesday, the representative read a letter from director Denis Villeneuve. He urged […]

IT Movie Review

IT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Pennywise was so deliciously creepy, I wanted to know more. Maybe Chapter 2 will flesh evil out. I want to know why. I haven’t read Stephen King’s 1986, 1,184 page opus “IT”. So I cannot compare it to this film directed by Andy Muschietti. Adapted from just the first part […]
