WARCRAFT Movie Review

WARCRAFT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic  Las Vegas Informer Sets the bar high and puts the Star Wars Empire on notice. The $160 million budget is all up on the screen. Warcraft is the current state-of-the-art. I knew nothing about the immensely addictive, monstrously successful video game “Warcraft”. I prefer to see a movie without having […]

THE CONJURING 2 Movie Review

THE CONJURING 2 Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I recently went to Mt. Charleston to meet up with Cecile and David LeClaire and members of their group, the Southern Nevada Ghost Hunters. They came equipped with highly sophisticated equipment and we were all prepared to spend the night camping in the mountains. The exit gate […]

THE LOBSTER Movie Review

THE LOBSTER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer In THE LOBSTER, being alone is shameful. How can someone be a productive member of society and be single? So shameful is the life of singlehood in The City, you are sent to The Hotel, a resort where, if you have not found a compatible mate in […]

ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS Movie Review

ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Spectacular visuals! No story to follow but costumes and Sacha Baron Cohen are terrific. Only thing to ask is ‘Who played Johnny Depp?’ Let us assume – for just the sake of this review – that you or your children never read Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland and the […]

HOLY HELL Review

HOLY HELL Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer This is a fascinating 20-year study of a cult leader. It is not to be missed. I have known two men who had min-cults. One man, Tilak, moved to Las Vegas after a disgraceful long article about him and his sexual proclivities with followers was exposed in […]

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 […]
