GONE GIRL Movie Review

GONE GIRL Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I’m not a fiction reader – I’m “reading” Max Tegmark’s Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality (it’s not a beach read) – but the hosannas for Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl were hard to ignore. I read it. Gone Girl is a brilliantly […]

STEPHEN KING’S A GOOD MARRIAGE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer This is the first feature film screenplay Stephen King has adapted from one of his works in 25 years. The last one was PET SEMATARY in 1989.

Movie Review – Cloudburst

by William Eamon Workman I love hearing the stories of old LGBT couples because they tell us how far we’ve come and give us the inspiration to keep going.  That’s why I jumped at the chance to watch Cloudburst on Netflix.  It turned out not only to be a great comedy but also one of […]

Movie Review – House of Boys

By William Eamon Workman Since the last two movies I reviewed focused on lesbians I decided to do this movie review on House of Boys which centers around gay teens.  It promised to focus on a young runaway who is hired as a dancer for a gay club so I was really looking forward to […]

Movie Review – But I’m A Cheerleader

By William Eamon Workman I first saw But I’m a Cheerleader while sitting tensely in an older girl’s room at the age of eighteen.  Despite my awkwardness, the hilarity of the movie soon drew me in and carried me away.  Since then I have watched it twice more and each time I laugh, I cry, […]

Movie Review – Blue is the Warmest Color

By William Eamon Workman Since my first introduction to this film was actually a negative response video on YouTube, I was understandably apprehensive about watching Blue is the Warmest Color.  However, my morbid curiousity got the better of me and I’m glad it did because I love this movie. Interestingly enough the original writer, Julie […]

FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Movie Review

FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander  Las Vegas Informer This sequel has girth. The filmmakers got the magnificent unclothed Eva Green as cinema’s deadliest femme fatale but Jessica Alba gets star billing? The sequel to co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s 2005 SIN CITY does not pander to a wider audience. If you loved SIN CITY, this is a […]

It’s an intimate, human scene about a boy who is losing his mother to cancer. With a movie that’s set in the reaches of outer space with aliens, blasters and sorts, […]

TAMMY Movie Review

TAMMY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I want more Tammy. I want the franchise, the book, the FX series and the musical. The most common female size in America is size 14. According to an article posted on Women’s Wear Daily online on January 24, 2011, “Since 2005, the average dress size in […]
