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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

THE ASSIGNMENT Movie Review

THE ASSIGNMENT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Terrific noir thriller. Rodriguez is daring, provocative and sensational as a hitman. A must-see, so rent or buy it. According to imdb.com, veteran director Walter Hill has been very busy producing. With THE ASSIGNMENT he’s back directing. Hill has also co-written the film with Denis Hamill. Sadly […]

DETROIT Movie Review

DETROIT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer This is one unnecessarily provocative account. According to historical accounts and reenacted by director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, the infamous three-day Detroit riots that began the night of July 23, 1967, started when the police raided an after-hours club. Were the police supposed to let […]

A GHOST STORY Movie Review

A GHOST STORY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A stunning philosophical film without compromise. Lowery’s A GHOST STORY is so original, daring and slow that it returns the medium of film into the hands of the director. David Lowery’s highly personal, troubling A GHOST STORY stays with you – rummaging around in your head. There […]

ATOMIC BLONDE Movie Review

ATOMIC BLONDE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Sensational. Jason Bourne and James Bond – this is the genre’s alpha successor. Theron is a goddess. You watch every action film and wonder, how come no one ever gets hurt? A punch to the face by someone trying to kill you or be killed by you […]

DUNKIRK Review

DUNKIRK Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer With magnificent visuals, tension is the star. There’s no crying in baseball and no romance in Christopher Nolan’s DUNKIRK. Screened at Regal’s Red Rock IMAX Theater in Las Vegas. Writer-director Nolan does not saddle one character to tell the story. It is dispensed with by off-handed remarks […]
