MALEFICENT Movie Review

MALEFICENT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer “The awful thing about life is this: Everybody has their reasons.” Maleficent has a very good reason. Sensational Jolie creates the character’s evolving emotions purely with her face. It’s your task to make the villainous characters of The Brothers Grimm fairytales – the Big Bad Wolf in […]

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST Movie Review

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander , Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Wait for TED 2. When Seth MacFarlane hosted the 2013 Academy Awards I wondered – how much did he buy that gig for? Is the MacFarlane brand big enough to host and sing-and-dance on the global behemoth that has an audience of potentially two billion? How many […]

X-Men: Days of Future Past: The Past is the Future

X-Men: Days of Future Past: The Past is the Future

By Sean Molloy Make no mistake by the previews or the buildup for Bryan Singer’s triumphant return to the X-Men franchise; Days of Future Past is a great, GREAT comic book movie. The film pays homage to the past and the present state of the franchise while seemingly to reset its own universe for the […]

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

By Sean Molloy Godzilla, the name itself brings up one of two things; a sense of nostalgia for the old, hokey Japanese films of the 1950s and ‘60s, or the disappointment and disgust that the reboot brought about in the ‘90s. Good thing that director Gareth Edwards completely avoids either and revitalizes the creature for […]

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE Movie Review

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Swinton and Hiddleston are sensuous creatures giving depth to the vampire hagiography. Every vampire book and movie fails to consider that vampires – by their very nature “immortal” – must lead spotless, law-abiding lives. Because, many countries have a sentence known as “Life, without the possibility of […]

GODZILLA: Fun, not cheesy and reinvigorates the iconic monster

GODZILLA: Fun, not cheesy and reinvigorates the iconic monster

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic  Fun, not cheesy and reinvigorates the iconic monster. Did GODZILLA need stars? As soon as Bryan Cranston appeared on screen, someone shouted out “Heisenberg!” We all love Walter White. And what about star Aaron Taylor-Johnson? When Taylor-Johnson stars as Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON (2015) you will definitely […]

“Neighbors”: Not for the Casual Comedy Viewer

“Neighbors”: Not for the Casual Comedy Viewer

By Sean Molloy There is no question that “Neighbors” is going to make serious money at the box office in the coming weeks. There is also no doubt that the movie is going to be remembered by some and loathed by others. This reviewer being more in the latter category for the most part, mainly because […]

UNDER THE SKIN Movie Review

UNDER THE SKIN Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I loved it. Dazzling, erotic and electrifying. Johansson is fantastic and the mood and music thrilling. It is relatively easy to seduce any man. Men subconsciously understand this and also understand that they are vulnerable against females in this way. They are afraid of being seduced and […]

NYMPHOMANIAC: Vol II Movie Review

NYMPHOMANIAC: Vol II Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Brilliant, strange, provocative and unsettling. All the characters are just aspects of von Trier – so is the audience. NYMPHOMANIAC: Vol II takes places at exactly the moment Vol. I leaves off. Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg, in her third von Trier film) continues to tell to Seligman (Stellan […]

Awakened Movie Review

Awakened Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A premier at the Brendan Theaters in The Palms in Las Vegas will be held on April 7 with a reception at the Ghost Bar. Unexpected twists and turns are a hallmark of this first-class mystery thriller.  Troubled by sketchy memories form young childhood, a driven Samantha […]
