Aleksandr’s Price Movie Review

Aleksandr’s Price Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Did you see the season finale of HBO’s True Blood? Alexander Skarsgård went full frontal. His bad boy vampire, Eric Northman, was shown fully naked on a chaise lounge chair reading a book in snowy Sweden. Suddenly, he leaps up and runs towards the camera, showing off […]

RIDDICK Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Diesel has resurrected Riddick and even though I don’t know what the hell was going on, it was terrific. Vin Diesel was right to bring back Riddick even though it has languished. The production is fantastic and the off-world Riddick (Vin Diesel) wakes up on is foreign […]

ELYSIUM Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander Las Vegas Informer “Rich people plan for three generations. Poor people plan for Saturday night.” Gloria Steinem Elysium takes place a hundred years from now and Earth is one big, over-crowded slum. It doesn’t matter what happened but it must have been nuclear. It’s dangerous to breathe the polluted air. Anyhow, the extremely rich have abandoned Earth […]

PACIFIC RIM Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander Las Vegas Informer It’s about lost shoes and bloody noses.

It seems a significant percentage of humans want superpowers, even if they […]

Why I Contribute to the Las Vegas Informer

By Victoria Alexander Las Vegas Informer Why I contribute to Las Vegas Informer: Because of Joe Buda. Not only can I count on Joe to put up my film reviews any time – day or night – I send him my review. He reads them and places the pictures I send him in the review. […]

“Now You See Me” Movie Review

“Now You See Me” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A messy magic act dominated by Eisenberg who once again shows off his amazing skill at memorizing long monologues. Jesse Eisenberg as J. Daniel Atlas dominates his co-stars by hogging all the psychic air out of scenes. While I didn’t expect to see Isla Fisher as Henley […]

“The Hangover Part III” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Stale. Rated “R” for what? Doesn’t just end the franchise, PART lll murders it. I laughed once. Our favorite R-rated, shockingly vulgar “Wolf Pack” is now domesticated. No more drugs, black-outs, sex with Hunts Point hookers, or Thai ladyboys. The funniest moments are when Alan (Zach Galifianakis) […]
