ARRIVAL Movie Review

ARRIVAL Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Avoids sloppy sentimentalism and gives the most probable contact with other beings we will likely encounter. Last month The Astrophysical Journal published the results of work led by Christopher J. Conselice, an astrophysicist, on the new number of galaxies in the Universe. The new number is two […]

HACKSAW RIDGE Movie Review

HACKSAW RIDGE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Astonishing return of Mel Gibson. In case you hold a grudge because a movie star insulted someone you do not know about circumstances you have no familiarity with, Lionsgate feels your pain. They understand your anguish and disgust over Mel Gibson’s drunken rant – surreptitiously and likely […]

MOONLIGHT Movie Review

MOONLIGHT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Honest and realistic exploration of one man’s journey from a neglectful childhood to adulthood and finding his own – highly personal – way in the world. The main character happens to be black and gay. Barry Jenkins’ MOONLIGHT was originally presented as a short play called In […]

JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK Movie Review

JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Jack Reacher may be cinema’s reigning street-fighting ascetic. Lee Child’s 21st Jack Reacher book, Night School, will be published in a few short weeks. Fans of the series are dedicated to the famously addictive books. I’ve read three Jack Reacher books: One Shot, which was the basis […]

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN Movie Review

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer If you envy the staged, make-believe life of the Kardashians, you will understand the premise. Blunt, Bennett, Evans, Ferguson and Theroux are sensational. Especially Bennett. If you loved the book, this delivers. Why do we love to tear down our stars and heroes? Is it because it […]

SULLY Movie Review

SULLY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Tom Hanks suffers and is scared. Films must have conflict. Films must have a villain. Otherwise, it’s just the numbing regularity of ordinary people’s daily life. The story of airline pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger landing his plane – with 155 passengers – in the Hudson River in […]

MORGAN Movie Review

MORGAN Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Terrific and highly entertaining. It’s smart, aggressive thriller. Luke Scott has arrived. We are more interested in changing our appearance with science than changing our brain’s abilities. Steroids and illegal compounds make athletes faster and stronger. Leg lengthening is the current must-have. It’s expensive in the U.S. […]

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. […]
