GALAXY OF THE GUARDIANS. VOL. 2 Review

GALAXY OF THE GUARDIANS. VOL. 2 Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The best sequel years. Though I didn’t understand the plot or the dialogue. Writer-director James Gunn returns as well as star Chris Pratt as Peter Quill. Peter has an Earth mother and an unknown celestial father from another galaxy. He was raised by a gang of thieves […]

THEIR FINEST Movie Review

THEIR FINEST Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer There’s a world war going on but people still want their entertaining movies. Before Christopher Nolan’s epic DUNKIRK opens on July 21, 2017, THEIR FINEST is introducing or re-introducing audiences to one of the most significant operations of World War II – The Battle of Dunkirk. England […]

FREE FIRE Movie Review

FREE FIRE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The ultimate shoot-out with highly original characters. Ben Wheatley’s FREE FIRE is for people who appreciate innovative filmmaking and do not require a step-by-step traditional set-up, explaining who everyone is, their hopes and dreams for a better tomorrow and their relationship to each other. Exposition be damned. […]

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS Review

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A howler of a mess. “Scowling face” hasn’t masqueraded touchy-feely homoerotic subtext since FAST AND THE FURIOUS 2. The characters have all become comic book superheroes and the villainess is richer than all the oligarchs combined! The love-hate, enemies then friends then enemies then forced friends again […]

LIFE Movie Review

LIFE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Terrific, smart sci-fi thriller. The crew aboard the International Space Station has onboard the first significant proof of life on Mars. The single cell is inert. The crew, led by CDC scientist Miranda North (Rebecca Ferguson), will observe and study the cell before returning to Earth. Excitement […]

LOGAN Movie Review

LOGAN Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer One of next year’s nominees for Best Actor must go to Jackman. His Logan is as moving and complex as dramatic characters demand. Boyd Holbrook is a charismatic villain. Its 2029 and mutants have been successfully removed from society. One mutant, Logan (Hugh Jackman) has not been […]

FIFTY SHADES DARKER Review

FIFTY SHADES DARKER Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic An embarrassment. Billionaire crybaby “sadist” Mr. Grey refuses to be touched. Which means in this fairy tale fellatio is verboten. Anna never praises his instrument. There’s no penis idolatry in Mr. Grey’s Red Room.    I was waiting for the arrival of Ashton Kutcher or Kate Hudson to stamp DARKER […]

SPLIT Movie Review

SPLIT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Yes, it’s terrific. We have a new Hannibal. Extraordinary performance by McAvoy. It’s his next franchise. Will the next 10 years going to be all about Shyamalan all the time? Does he remember his last films with shame like we do? Does multiple personality disorder really exist? […]

THE FOUNDER Movie Review

THE FOUNDER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Keaton straddles the humble, and then the bastard, Ray Croc with aplomb. You will end up hating the man. I have never eaten a McDonald’s hamburger. (I’m a life-long vegetarian.) If THE FOUNDER had been made 30 years ago, you wouldn’t have eaten one either. There would not be – […]

ELLE Movie Review

ELLE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Verhoeven is back. Huppert’s magnificent, fearless performance deserves the Best Actress Academy Award. Paul Verhoeven has done the impossible. (Whatever happened to Renny Harlin?) With ELLE, Verhoeven has resurrected his career as a first-class director. While he has worked consistently in the Netherlands, this is his first […]
