Glass Onion (2022) – Movie Review

The panache and glamour of both detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) and the high-profile mysteries in which he is embroiled have a gravitational pull like few others. It’s the fulfillment of the promise of a goofy time amongst people who purport to be close friends or family, winding up quite opposite that as the plot […]

Logan Lucky

When thinking about Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, I keep flashing back to something Stu Redman said in the 1994 TV adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand”: “Redneck don’t mean stupid.” If Soderbergh’s trilogy of Ocean’s films were finely-tuned jazz-funk, consider Logan Lucky to be its scruffier skiffle-band cousin.

Skyfall

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on November 8, 2012.) This is kind of a new foray for me. How does one actually rate and review a James Bond movie? Do you treat it like any other movie, or are these movies held to a different standard due to their cultural status? This […]

Skyfall

(This review was originally published on November 8, 2012 at Reel Film News) I like this vulnerable, damaged, dysfunctional James Bond. It’s a change in direction that has liberated a 50-year-old film franchise from its archaic, superficial shell and allowed for a flawed, complex character to emerge, in far superior form. Since “Casino Royale”, Daniel […]
