TERMINATOR GENISYS Movie Review

TERMINATOR GENISYS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The screenwriters have dispelled the notion of a space/time continuum. Only Stephen Hawkings might be able to understand the plot of T-G. It’s great to see the Arnold of PUMPING IRON resurrected by CGI. Why couldn’t that Arnold be in the whole movie? Albert Einstein’s Special Theory […]

MAGIC MIKE XXL Movie Review

MAGIC MIKE XXL Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer So howling terrible – it’s a must see! An insult to women – especially women past 25. Tatum’s likeability survives. The only thing missing is SHOWGIRLS Gina Gershon. The curse of the lousy, disappointing sequel continues. MMxxl proposes that male stripping is an artistic expression of manliness. […]

AMY Movie Review

AMY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A raw look at Winehouse without any excuses. Amy Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse, is threatening to sue the makers of AMY, the documentary about Amy Winehouse’s life because he believes it portrays him in a negative light as greedy and uncaring. He is fearful of the film’s […]

Jurassic World: Closed for Business

Jurassic World: Closed for Business

By Sean Molloy 22 years have passed since the original events of Jurassic Park. Humans are now used to have a full-fledged theme park dedicated to the idea to seeing dinosaurs in a modern world. Society is so used to it that the genetic engineers working in Jurassic World are now coming up with bigger […]

SAINT LAURENT Movie Review

SAINT LAURENT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer This is the way you should want your life presented on film – and no matter who you are – it would star the gorgeous, expressive Gaspard Ulliel. There are currently two Yves Saint Laurent films: Jalil Lespert’s Yves Saint Laurent (2014) and Bertrand Bonello’s SAINT LAURENT […]

ENTOURAGE Movie Review

ENTOURAGE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A disgrace. Every viewer will know more about the inner workings of Hollywood than the guys who made this bore. Stale, dated, and dull – except for Ronda Rousey. I did not expect writer, producer, director Doug Ellin (who also was the HBO series creator) to do […]

LOVE & MERCY Movie Review

LOVE & MERCY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A sadist father, a sadist therapist, a severe mental illness, and a brilliant career. It’s all here without the whitewash of movies based of a real person’s life. This is harrowing account of the well-known life of the Beach Boys’ sole architect, Brian Wilson. Sanctioned by Wilson, […]

The Fourth Noble Truth Movie Review

The Fourth Noble Truth Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Entertainingly, THE FOURTH NOBLE TRUTH, serves as a great mechanism to engage the public and inform them about Buddhism in a practical way.  Rather than a preachy documentary, the writer-director, Gary McDonald, provides an intriguing tale of human drama that depicts the lessons to be learned by […]

MAD MAX FURY ROAD Movie Review

MAD MAX FURY ROAD Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Awesome! Up-ends the genre. No dialogue, no exposition, no explanation and no kissing. Just pure energy (and heroic stunt work)! Who would have thought that 70 year old George Miller could put together such a magnificent and emotional film without the requisite scenes of characters explaining themselves, […]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD Movie Review

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Beautifully rendered but the subject that drives the story – English class distinction – is subsumed by the three suitors’ pursuit of the independent heroine. I have not read the acclaimed classic novel by Thomas Hardy or saw the 1967 film directed by John Schlesinger.* Thomas Hardy’s […]
