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. With their daughter Jeanie (Sugar Lyn Beard) getting married in Hawaii, Mr. and Mrs. Stangle (Stephen Root and Stephanie Faracy) arrange an intervention for their two sons, Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave […]

TARZAN Movie Review

TARZAN Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Skarsgard does not embarrass himself, which says a lot. I liked what they did with the story. When the movie opens, it is the late 1880s and John Clayton III, the Earl of Greystoke (Alexander Skarsgard) has been rescued from the jungle and his family of gorillas, […]

WARCRAFT Movie Review

WARCRAFT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic  Las Vegas Informer Sets the bar high and puts the Star Wars Empire on notice. The $160 million budget is all up on the screen. Warcraft is the current state-of-the-art. I knew nothing about the immensely addictive, monstrously successful video game “Warcraft”. I prefer to see a movie without having […]

THE CONJURING 2 Movie Review

THE CONJURING 2 Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I recently went to Mt. Charleston to meet up with Cecile and David LeClaire and members of their group, the Southern Nevada Ghost Hunters. They came equipped with highly sophisticated equipment and we were all prepared to spend the night camping in the mountains. The exit gate […]

THE LOBSTER Movie Review

THE LOBSTER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer In THE LOBSTER, being alone is shameful. How can someone be a productive member of society and be single? So shameful is the life of singlehood in The City, you are sent to The Hotel, a resort where, if you have not found a compatible mate in […]

ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS Movie Review

ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Spectacular visuals! No story to follow but costumes and Sacha Baron Cohen are terrific. Only thing to ask is ‘Who played Johnny Depp?’ Let us assume – for just the sake of this review – that you or your children never read Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland and the […]

HOLY HELL Review

HOLY HELL Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer This is a fascinating 20-year study of a cult leader. It is not to be missed. I have known two men who had min-cults. One man, Tilak, moved to Las Vegas after a disgraceful long article about him and his sexual proclivities with followers was exposed in […]

THE NICE GUYS Movie Review

THE NICE GUYS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Shane Black re-writes the buddy movie template and gives Crowe a second chance and a franchise. Lots of nasty, unrepentant violence and hookers. Pure enjoyment. I remember reading Shane Black’s screenplay for LETHAL WEAPON (1987). It was a completely unorthodox script. Obviously, Black did not use Final […]
