THE SECOND MOTHER Movie Review

THE SECOND MOTHER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer It speaks to anyone considering hiring a live-in nanny. Regina Casé is terrific. Yoselyn Ortega, a 50-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen, stabbed to death two children, 6 and 2, in their family’s luxury Upper West Side apartment in 2012. Ortega, who had spent over two years as the […]

Movie Review: American Ultra

Movie Review: American Ultra

By Sean Molloy American Ultra is a movie that bleeds boldness. It takes some grit to showcase a big reveal at the end of the first act rather than the conclusion. Its young actors really didn’t have to give so much effort for a script that could have been phoned in a bit but they […]

THE END OF THE TOUR Movie Review

THE END OF THE TOUR Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Torturous. Fitzgerald, Hemmingway, Salinger and…David Foster Wallace? Come on, you never heard of him or his book. This movie is just an ad for another book, Primary Colors. A movie about the author of a book that the screenwriter, Donald Marguiles, and the director, James Ponsoldt, loves […]

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

By Sean Molloy There’s one thing that’s an absolutely guarantee in every Guy Ritchie movie, the intrinsic quality of cool. From his earlier films such as Lock Stock” and “Two Smoking Barrels” to his better known Sherlock Holmes adaptations, the director knows how to take small things like camera work and make them inherently unique […]

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Movie Review

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Henry Cavill won the evolutionary sweepstakes and even without being Ritchie’s object of desire, he’s the best thing in the movie. Everything else is boring, stunted and a “who cares”? Screenplay writing 101: Why do we always need a “getting to know you” beginning? Just like hundreds of […]

Movie Review: Fantastic Four

Movie Review: Fantastic Four

By Sean Molloy The Fantastic Four seems to be a cursed franchise by now. Any fan could argue that if you would have to pick the three worst movies in the superhero genre by now, 2 of those 3 would be the 2005 and 2007 sequel of Reed Richards and crew. The other being Green […]

THE GIFT Movie Review

THE GIFT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The surprise emergence of a highly talented writer-director. Bravo to Bateman taking on such a tough role. Let’s ignore the fact that the last time we saw Joel Edgerton it was in EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS as Moses’ foil Ramses or as the colorless Tom Buchanan in […]

IRRATIONAL MAN Movie Review

IRRATIONAL MAN Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Dostoyevsky, Kant, Sartre and the standard Woody Allen May-December romance. Reaffirms Allen’s belief that intellect wins the ladies. Do you have a moral curfew? If you could go back in time, would you baby Hitler to save millions of people’s lives? Would you have killed Judas to […]

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

By Sean Molloy Mission Impossible is the fifth film in Tom Cruise’s franchise in 20 years. More often than not, the movies are released years apart and have little continuity with each other. Which, at times can be equally frustrating but understandable as the series needs to stay fresh. Yet, one couldn’t wonder that the […]

Movie Review: Vacation

Movie Review: Vacation

by Sean Molloy National Lampoon’s Vacation movies are one of the pillars of comedy. When the original came to theaters over 30 years ago, it was famous for pushing the boundaries of what a “family” comedy could do on screen. Equally dirty and heartfelt, the story of the Griswold’s was almost universally loved. So how […]
