THE ASSIGNMENT Movie Review

THE ASSIGNMENT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Terrific noir thriller. Rodriguez is daring, provocative and sensational as a hitman. A must-see, so rent or buy it. According to imdb.com, veteran director Walter Hill has been very busy producing. With THE ASSIGNMENT he’s back directing. Hill has also co-written the film with Denis Hamill. Sadly […]

DETROIT Movie Review

DETROIT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer This is one unnecessarily provocative account. According to historical accounts and reenacted by director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, the infamous three-day Detroit riots that began the night of July 23, 1967, started when the police raided an after-hours club. Were the police supposed to let […]

A GHOST STORY Movie Review

A GHOST STORY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A stunning philosophical film without compromise. Lowery’s A GHOST STORY is so original, daring and slow that it returns the medium of film into the hands of the director. David Lowery’s highly personal, troubling A GHOST STORY stays with you – rummaging around in your head. There […]

ATOMIC BLONDE Movie Review

ATOMIC BLONDE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Sensational. Jason Bourne and James Bond – this is the genre’s alpha successor. Theron is a goddess. You watch every action film and wonder, how come no one ever gets hurt? A punch to the face by someone trying to kill you or be killed by you […]

DUNKIRK Review

DUNKIRK Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer With magnificent visuals, tension is the star. There’s no crying in baseball and no romance in Christopher Nolan’s DUNKIRK. Screened at Regal’s Red Rock IMAX Theater in Las Vegas. Writer-director Nolan does not saddle one character to tell the story. It is dispensed with by off-handed remarks […]

WISH UPON Review

WISH UPON Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer John R. Leonetti directs without giving any thrills. Have you been missing the FINAL DESTINATION franchise? Still insist on reliving your high school days? Furious that wishes never come true? Then WISH UPON is the perfect summer movie for you. The Monkey’s Paw updated – once again? […]

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Review

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer SPIDER-MAN will soon be celebrating his 15th birthday. Marvel Studios decided that 11% of moviegoers age 12-17 is the demographic they are investing in. According to the MPAA, the population of the United States and Canada age two and over totaled 338 million people in 2014, with […]

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES Review

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Sensational! A fully realized, fascinating world. The best film of 2017…so far. I admit I was not a faithful fan of the Planet of the Apes franchise. I don’t remember what happened in the last one, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES (2014) or RISE OF […]

BABY DRIVER Movie Review

BABY DRIVER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Edgar Wright put a YA storyline into a heist plot. Unfortunately, sweet Elgort – a criminal – has no dark edges. Baby has 8 out of 10 symptoms of Asperger’s Syndrome. Have you seen Sam Taylor-Johnson’s video for R.E.M.’s ÜBerlin starring her husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson?  If not, […]

THE BEGUILED Movie Review

\

THE BEGUILED Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Under Coppola’s direction all eroticism is submerged in female unity and empowerment. IMDB.com lists under THE BEGUILED’s writing credit: Sofia Coppola … (written for the screen by) and Thomas Cullinan … (novel). On the screen it said “Screenplay by Sofia Coppola.” So I was shocked when I […]
