Our Brand Is Crisis (2015)

"Our Brand Is Crisis" (2015) is a smart, gritty, realistic look at the world of politics. In this case, the plot takes place in Bolivia where political fix-it woman Jane (Sandra Bullock) is asked to help a badly losing politician, Castillo (Joaquim de Almeida), who is running for president, and [...]

School for Scoundrels

While the premise for this comedy is interesting and could have some wonderful opportunities for funny scenes, Todd Phillips and Scot Armstrong take the low road by including a tremendous amount of obscene and profane language. In addition, too much of the "humor" was people getting hit in the [...]

The Ice Harvest – Filtered

February 28, 2006
"The Ice Harvest" had some big names, but that certainly doesn’t make for a good movie as it was about murder, larceny and cover-ups. There was too much violence, even in the filtered version, to come close to being a good family-centered movie. There’s a reason "The Ice Harvest" was [...]
