Downsizing

December 22, 2017
Downsizing imagines (and rightly so) how our world is completely strapped. Whether it be financial burdens, relationship anxieties, or environmental devastation, we are under pressure and undeniably stressed out. The titular phrase has to do with cutting corners, not by the elimination of employees [...]

Suburbicon

October 27, 2017
George Clooney had his hands all over this movie as one of the writers, as its producer and director, and he missed the mark with Suburbicon, which is unintentionally ironic. In this re-working of an old Cohen brothers’ script, he tells the story of a small Caucasian family named the [...]

The Great Wall

"The Great Wall" is an action-packed movie with a moral lesson: unchecked greed will not bring happiness.

A wicked sandstorm leads to the quick evacuation of the NASA team on Mars, but [...]

The Monuments Men

February 7, 2014
This movie begins with the notation that it is based on a true story. It opens in Paris, France, in March, 1943. George Clooney, who produced and co-wrote the script, along with directing the film, is a very capable filmmaker who puts out a quality motion picture. It is unfortunate the content is [...]

Elysium

August 9, 2013
I liked the ending, it offered hope for earthlings in the year 2154. Unfortunately, this is one of the most violent movies I have ever seen and several people left early at the screening I attended. It features a man's face exploding and we see him in a graphic scene afterward, missing his face. It [...]

Matt Damon turns in a fine performance as a sincere representative of a company named Global, which is interested in purchasing many acres of land from farmers for the natural gas on the properties. They don't tell them that the drilling can cause environmental problems. When an environmentalist [...]
