Daniel Barnes @ the SN&R - 11/20/14 Issue


*After Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, it has become almost too easy to mock and dismiss the conventions of the traditional biopic. Although uneven as a comedy, Jake Kasdan’s 2007 parody so effectively spotlighted and skewered the hoary tropes of the genre that any film employing them with a straight face risks looking ridiculous. 111 more words

In Need of Your Opinion

Yes, your opinion. Question:

I love watching movies, whether they be from Redbox or in theaters (I don’t discriminate). Would you all want to hear my opinion of the plot and characters on the silver screen? 9 more words


review - saving mr. banks

If you were to ask those who know movies to make a list of the most enjoyable musical films, with the most loved songs, ever, “Mary Poppins” — with music and lyrics by Richard and Robert Sherman — would be up near (or at) the very top of the list. 239 more words

Review - The Counselor

Halfway through this almost two-hour movie, the Counselor (Fassbender) asks Westray (Pitt): “What happens next?” A better question would have been: “What’s happened so far?” The answer to both: “It’s difficult to determine.” If you’ve seen the trailer and couldn’t figure out what the movie was about, watching the whole film won’t necessarily help. 157 more words

review - interstellar

In a movie filled with A-list talent, the biggest name here is one whose face is never on screen. This is a “Christopher Nolan movie” and once again, he and his brother Jonathan have written a dark, complex, very long story that he’s made into spectacular entertainment. 236 more words
