MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Review

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer What’s next? Bringing back Charlie Chan? MURDER lacks ugliness, spite and callousness. Branagh talks too much. I cannot compare THE MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS with the original 1974 film of Agatha Christie’s famous book. Do we really need a Hercule Poirot franchise starring Kenneth Branagh? I […]

THOR: RAGNAROK Review

THOR: RAGNAROK Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Cate Blanchett is Marvel’s new goddess and deserves her own franchise. This is the best of the Avengers and Hemsworth’s charisma shines throughout, after all, he is the God of Thunder. If you are sick of superheroes saving the Earth and mankind over and over again, THOR: […]

MARSHALL Movie Review

MARSHALL Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer An important look at the man who influenced and structured American civil rights laws. At a time when the National Football League (NFL) is embroiled in controversy over some players “taking a knee” during the playing of the National Anthem, along comes MARSHALL to remind us of […]

AMERICAN MADE Movie Review

AMERICAN MADE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The march to judge Cruise’s career dead is premature. His charm and energy and willingness to look like hell elevates this movie. He’s terrific and its a lot of fun. Another drug mule movie? Well, when Tom Cruise is playing the “mule”, you can be assured that […]

MOTHER! Movie Review

MOTHER! Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer What sustains and nurtures creativity? Aronofsky understands the cruelty of genius. I have read two critics reviews of  MOTHER! with no attempt at interpreting what Aronofsky is saying. So, not to cheat my readers, here is my explanation of MOTHER! Writer-director Darren Aronofsky’s MOTHER! stars Jennifer Lawrence […]

BATTLE OF THE SEXES Movie Review

BATTLE OF THE SEXES Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Emma Stone is dazzling. She is more Billie Jean than Billie Jean. If BATTLE OF THE SEXES had been made any other time in the past, Billie Jean King’s “authentic” self (as it is known today) would have been whitewashed. Her husband Larry King would have been […]

THE BAD BATCH Movie Review

THE BAD BATCH Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las vegas Informer Astonishing, daring, fearless. Be warned-Amirpour doesn’t care what you think. Writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour is fantastic! She is a highly unique filmmaker with what I consider the single most important element in filmmaking – a strong, personal point of view. She has something to say and just […]

AMERICAN ASSASSIN Movie Review

AMERICAN ASSASSIN Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A fun thriller hobbled by stale dialogue from every action-thriller movie the collective screenwriters have ever seen. Based on the novels by the late Vince Flynn, the multiple screenwriters – Stephen Schiff, Michael Finch, Edward Zwick, and Marshall Herskovitz – threw everything they have ever written and […]

PATTI CAKE$ Review

PATTI CAKE$ Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Bridget Everett is sensational and Danielle Macdonald secures her place in Hollywood movies. It sounds like a movie you have no interest in seeing. You heard its about a fat chick named Patty (Danielle Macdonald) who lives in the rundown, neglected, tree-less part of New Jersey with […]

STEP Movie Review

STEP Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Its hard to criticize such an inspiring, well-intentional film. What’s next? Senior citizens in wheelchairs across the country starting “synchronistic clapping” teams? The Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, a public charter high school, was established in 2009. It’s mission is to send every one of its […]
