“Birdman”: A Review by Darian Bolin

“Birdman”: A Review by Darian Bolin

In Birdman, directed and co-written by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Michael Keaton plays a character who is essentially a sensationalized version of himself, a washed-up actor named Riggan Thomson, famous for playing fictional superhero Birdman in a trilogy of movies over twenty years ago. He is growing worried that he will eventually not matter, that he […]

The Oscar Categories Less Spoken Of

The Oscar Categories Less Spoken Of

It’s Oscars season, and with it comes the usual amount of pre-show speculation. Which is more likely to win Best Male Actor, Christian Bale or Matthew McConaughey?

Stoker’s Vision On Two Screens: Nosferatu and Dracula

Good Evening, stay for the night as both the 1929 silent Nosferatu is examined side by side with Bela Lugosi’s audible 1931 Dracula.

American Reunion Review

American Reunion Review

American Reunion is the best movie I’ve seen so far this year.  No, seriously. It’s outright hilarious, as one would expect from a movie of the famed American Pie series.  But it also succeeds where the previous three (we are not counting those horrendous spin-offs) movies have failed (or succeeded to a much lesser extent) – […]

Jack Gillespie’s “21 Jump Street” Review

Movies based on television shows are not known to be particularly revered among the general populace. Just within the last few years we’ve seen the second-rate Bewitched, the boring The A-Team, and the absolute affront to humanity MacGruber. Even the successful ones bring about mixed criticism (The Simpsons Movie). Given this mediocre track record, I […]
