  • Movie Review: 'A Walk Among the Tombstones’

    2014
    Distinctly old-fashioned in its retro, film noir vibe, the movie is notable for its dark atmospherics and strong performance by Liam Neeson.

Bond Submersible Car Bought by Tesla Motors CEO

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has purchased the Lotus Esprit featured in the underwater scene in "The Spy Who Loved Me," his company said. Musk purchased the submersible vehicle for $968,000 at an auction held last month in London, automobile blog Jalopnik reported Thursday. The car enthusiast and futurist apparently based the design of the first Tesla on James Bond's Lotus Esprit, The Hollywood Reporter said. "It was amazing as a little kid in South Africa to watch James Bond in "The Spy Who Loved Me" drive his Lotus Esprit off a pier, press a button and have it transform into a submarine underwater. I was disappointed to learn that it ca... more

Movie Review: 'The Fifth Estate'

wikileaks fifth estate trailer

LOS ANGELES - Ripped from headlines that still feel wet, "The Fifth Estate" dramatizes the fast, controversial rise of anonymous-whistleblower website WikiLeaks and its figurehead, Julian Assange. Aiming to provide the kind of speculative personality portrait behind another sweeping digital-age change in communication that touches nearly everyone, a la "The Social Network," helmer Bill Condon and scenarist Josh Singer's film must also stuff in a heavy load of global events, all in a hyperkinetic style aping today's speed of information dispersal. Results can't help but stimulate, but they're also cluttered and overly frenetic, resulting ... more

Movie Review: '12 Years a Slave'

12 years a slave 2

Is it possible to convey, through the experience of just one man, the sweep and enormity of the horror that was American slavery? That, quite simply, is the formidable task that British director Steve McQueen has set for himself with his new film, the blistering "12 Years a Slave." And even if the movie weren't as good as it is, we'd need to thank him for trying; far too few filmmakers have had the courage or initiative to address head-on the darkest chapter of U.S. history. As it happens, the film is stunningly good, thanks both to McQueen's unflinching, unsentimental approach and to impeccable casting, most crucially of the wonderfully... more

Movie Review: 'All is Lost'

redford all is lost

What floats your boat? Do you like your movies with dialogue, multiple characters, complex story lines - you know, stuff? Or can a film without the benefit of such things fill your sails? J.C. Chandor's second film, "All Is Lost," starring Robert Redford, is typically characterized by what it isn't. There's little in the way of backstory. There's only one character. And he generally doesn't talk. There is a man at sea, an old man. And that is about it. Hemingway's tale is a garish soap opera by comparison. We know little about our unnamed man (Redford). We're informed that he's located 1700 nautical miles from Indonesia's Sumatra Strai... more

Movie Review: 'Carrie'

carrie movie 2013

When Brian De Palma adapted Stephen King's novel "Carrie" for film in 1976, he turned the simple story of a bullied teenage girl with telekinetic powers into a dreamy pop-horror fantasia _ a lush, operatic fright show that grooved on its excesses. De Palma threw everything into the movie: split screens; slow motion; cartoonish humor; shameless sentimentality; a merciless sense of justice. The film made you laugh as much as it scared you. Often, it did both at the same time. De Palma's "Carrie" became so iconic that it remains fresh and vital 37 years later - practically an eternity in Hollywood time - and casts an imposing shadow over the... more
