DON’T BREATHE Movie Review

DON’T BREATHE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Unsettling and terrific horror thriller. How the hell did Rocky (Jane Levy) get herself into the dire situation that opens DON’T BREATHE? Rocky, her boyfriend Money (Daniel Zovatto) and their friend Alex (Dylan Minnette) survive in Detroit by breaking into rich people’s houses and taking stuff. Rocky […]

BEN HUR Movie Review

BEN HUR Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Two stunning scenes and two boring actors without charisma. They neutered their characters. Messala ruined the Ben-Hur family simply out of necessity – he was just doing his job. Remaking, or re-imagining, or whatever, BEN-HUR was put in the hands of a very stylish director, Timur Bekmambetov. […]

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS Movie Review

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Meryl Streep is brilliant and the sun is shining on Hugh Grant again. Their performances are extraordinary. Hugh Grant has starred in several memorable films. For me, his best performances were in FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL (1994), NOTTING HILL (1999) and ABOUT A BOY (2002).  Grant […]

SUICIDE SQUAD Movie Review

SUICIDE SQUAD Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Delivers exactly what it promises and what you expect. The best popcorn movie of the summer. I’m tired of heroes. I’m not interested in anything called “The Justice League.” What is the best thing about thrillers? The villain. You must have a terrific, dangerous, psychopath as a […]

JASON BOURNE Movie Review

JASON BOURNE Movie Review

Las Vegas Informer Bravo to star Damon and director Greengrass. Ethan Hunt and James Bond, how are you going to top the destruction of the Las Vegas Strip? Just why would the CIA need to create non-emotional, detached killers? The DSM IV-TR gives the prevalence of psychopathy as 3% in males and 1% in females. […]

CAFE SOCIETY Movie Review

CAFE SOCIETY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Cleverly designed to question your ideas about love. Jeanne Berlin steals the movie. Walter Isaacson of Time magazine asked Woody Allen if he used his movies to work through dilemmas he faced in life. Allen replied: “No, people always confuse my movies and my life.” In the […]

THE INFILTRATOR Movie Review

THE INFILTRATOR Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Cranston is at the center of all the action. It’s a highly narcissist performance – like LBJ – and mesmerizing. When James Gandolfini walked away from The Sopranos, fans gasped. He left Tony Soprano to do what? A few well-received but lackluster movies. David Duchovny walked away […]

GHOSTBUSTERS Movie Review

GHOSTBUSTERS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The screenwriters love Kate McKinnon and dismiss Leslie Jones.  The biggest laugh goes to Zach Woods in the opening scene. Stay for Hemsworth dance during the credits. I liked the original GHOSTBUSTERS but that was 1984. It was just another movie for me. I saw it once. […]

MIKE AND DAVE NEED WEDDING DATES Movie Review

MIKE AND DAVE NEED WEDDING DATES Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Efron has a certified hit and becomes a movie star. Aubrey Plaza steals the movie.
