THE NICE GUYS Movie Review

THE NICE GUYS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Shane Black re-writes the buddy movie template and gives Crowe a second chance and a franchise. Lots of nasty, unrepentant violence and hookers. Pure enjoyment. I remember reading Shane Black’s screenplay for LETHAL WEAPON (1987). It was a completely unorthodox script. Obviously, Black did not use Final […]

ANGRY BIRDS Movie Review

ANGRY BIRDS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I have allowed the obsessive phenomenon that is Apple iPhone’s Angry Birds game to pass me right by. Every day – according to research I did online – multiple millions of hours are spent playing the game. Why? I do not have a clue. I was generously […]

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Movie Review

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Professor X and Magneto should finally admit their toxic relationship is really lust and get on with it. Every Marvel X-MEN movie – no matter what version – has a template that is really starting to age in its predictability. At first, Professor X and his nemesis/friend […]

KEANU Movie Review

KEANU Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The poster star of KEANU just has a brief cameo. I wanted more Keanu. Retired cinematic hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves) would be throwing coins at Rell (Jordan Peele) and Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) for their determined pursuit of the drug gang who “abducted” kitten Keanu. Keanu was […]

THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR Movie Review

THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Hemsworth is so charming he should be playing psychopaths. The man cannot stop smiling during a violent storm and here he’s a flirt in a fetching woodsman outfit. I dreaded seeing this. No matter that the field of basic plots has gone from seven to 20 (The […]

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL Movie Review

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer There are now 7.4 billion people on earth. Not one of them has evolved special powers. Genetic science keeps assuring us that as a species we are still evolving. Charles Darwin’s seminal work on evolution concluded – simply summarized as “survival of the fittest” – was the basis […]

DEMOLITION Movie Review

DEMOLITION Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Gyllenhaal creates a wonderful character and graciously has real chemistry with young co-star Judah Lewis. Davis (Gyllenhaal) has a pretty enviable life. His wife Julia (Heather Lind) comes from a wealthy family and her father, Phil (Chris Cooper), has installed him in his Wall Street investment firm. […]

Movies Are Better at the $5 Bin!

I know right from wrong. You know right from wrong. John Wayne knows how to “reward” right from wrong. Good Guys Bad Guys Guns Gold Jack Elam and Jennifer O’Neill it doesn’t get much better…maybe with 2 Jennifer O’Neills?

In Defense of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

In Defense of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

by Josh Morris By now you may have heard that Batman vs. Superman isn’t very good; or that it’s a disappointment in some way or another. While the film may have its shortcomings, I found it intense, fun and even moving at times. The new DC Comic’s movie has earned (for now) the biggest box […]
