The Dark Tower

August 4, 2017
"The Dark Tower" is based on Stephen King's acclaimed set of eight books in a series, stewing adventure, fantasy, and western genres in a pot. What seems to have worked on the page does not translate into a 90-minute film, where director Nicolaj Arcel attempts to stuff so many plots and backstories [...]

Interstellar

November 7, 2014
Space travelers unite! Here is a movie that will have you on the edge of ... the galaxy. Cooper was trained as an astronaut but now farms with his father-in-law and his two children. They raise corn because it seems to be the only thing that grows these days. If that weren't bad enough, they are [...]

The Lincoln Lawyer

March 18, 2011
This is a mystery/suspense story that is better than some I have reviewed. Mick Haller (Matthew McConaughey) is an attorney who always charges the highest prices he can because, as he tells one client, "I don't work for nothing". He works almost all the time except for brief evenings or weekends [...]

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

May 1, 2009
First of all, the answer is yes, this is a chick flick. I am sure that a lot of women have met a man like Connor, who thinks that women are only worth it for one thing and it is not marriage. But just like Scrooge in the classic "Christmas Carol", Connor is shown the errors of his ways so he can [...]

Fools Gold

February 8, 2008
"Fool's Gold" had a real potential for being a fun upbeat treasure hunt film. Unfortunately, the good times were marred by frequent foul language and sexual situations. At times the movie moved very slowly and at others, it raced ahead rather quickly. This herky-jerky pace made it difficult to [...]

We Are Marshall

December 22, 2006
We found this movie to be inspirational and moving. It begins with the statement on screen: "This is a true story," not "This is based on a true story," so the producers obviously went to great lengths to ensure that the story they portrayed was accurate. It is a heart-wrenching story and yet it [...]

Failure to Launch

March 10, 2006
"Failure to Launch" has many original funny moments, especially when Terry Bradshaw and Kathy Bates are on the screen. I found the entire plot to be somewhat similar to McConaughey's other romantic comedy "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days", although his character in this one is much more childish and [...]
