Every now and again a film comes along and reminds you how good of an actor Nicolas Cage really is. Joe seems custom built for Cage. 376 more words

Goodbye to Language (2014)

I suspect I would have enjoyed this movie a lot more if I saw it in 3D. But as a flat, 2D experience it was nothing more than a pretentious slog. 141 more words

New York Stories (1989)

As a fan of all the filmmakers involved, it feels great to finally see New York Stories but I had my expectations in check. I’ve had enough experience with anthology films to know how uneven they can be but this one fares well for the most part. 557 more words

The Signal (2014)

This was pretty frustrating. The film opens with such promise. You have odd characters with ambiguous motivations and backstory then a sudden plunge into sci-fi paranoia territory with Laurence Fishburne. 217 more words
