film review - A Long Way Down

Somewhere in A Long Way Down is a terrific film struggling to get out. Individual parts of this adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel are in fact great, but the movie never quite becomes the sum of its parts, because of the way the material is handled. 453 more words


Escape Plan (2013) Review

“You hit like a vegetarian!”

Finally. Schwarzenegger and Stallone in a movie together. Sure, they were in The Expendables together but not for very long and those movies, however awesome, were basically a big joke anyway. 542 more words
