MOVIE REVIEW – AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Avengers: Age of Ultron

There is a LOT going on in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, the latest in the ongoing saga of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. That works both for and against the film, but overall, in the hands of Joss Whedon, it’s never dull.

MOVIE REVIEW – FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD

Far From the Madding Crowd

Bathsheba has a strong head about her that reminds me of Black Widow, who outsmarts her opponents long before she dismantles them with fighting technique.

INDIE REPORT – PRIMROSE LANE

Primrose Lane

Writer/director and actress Kathleen Davison has a haunting tale to tell, and it was told well as the closing night film for the NoHo Cinefest.

MOVIE REVIEW – UNFRIENDED

Unfriended

“Unfriended” is an interesting horror film in that the characters are so shallow, obnoxious and unlikable that I think it’s a pretty accurate portrayal of entitled, tech-addicted youths and there’s great reward in watching them get offed.

THE MOVIE SHOWCAST, NOW ON SNEAKY-CAM (w/Melissa Villaseñor) – “The Age of Adaline”, “The Water Diviner” & “Little Boy”
