Mad Max: Fury Road Review

My 71 year old mother trusts Kenneth Turan of the L.A. Times more than me. She was visiting for the weekend and we were looking for something to do for a few hours. I had seen Mad Max: Fury Road already at that point and was telling her how gonzo crazy it was, that it existed in a realm I rarely see, and that I think we need more visionary films like this. I shared with her what I thought would be the opening line to my review and...

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

My computer was in my backpack while I was at Pritzger Pavilion in Chicago watching This Is Spinal Tap when a thunderstorm came along. Bye bye laptop. Bye bye early chance to write my review. I was very much down in the dumps and told my woes to the various friends in my group as we waited in line for Guardians of the Galaxy. Lucky for me I was about to be treated to an awe-inspiring good time at the movies. Later to be followed up by...

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

The theater was pretty well packed as G.I. Joe and I had to wait in line to see Kingsman: The Secret Service. Based on the previews I was expecting a rollicking, crazy time of action and adventure. And boy does it deliver. Secret Agent Harry Hart (aka Galahad) owes his life to the father of street youth “Eggsy” – a remarkably clean, movie-ticket-sellingly attractive, and well-washed boy who lives in squalor with his...
