The Gentlemen (2020) – Movie Review

The mere mention of “A Guy Ritchie Film” evokes differing reactions from everyone, whether casual fans or considered part of the cognoscenti. Most think immediately of his first two breakout feature films – Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Both are wittily-written and cannily-directed stories based in London’s criminal underworld, dealing with unsavory types […]

“Interstellar” – Mike’s review

A lot like his 2010 film “Inception”, Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” deals in multiple layers of time and space. In the not-too-distant future, Earth is close to running out of natural resources; corn is the last remnant of agriculture, and massive dust storms occur on a regular basis. After a gravitational anomaly leads him to a […]

Interstellar

Please note: this review originally gave Interstellar three stars in 2014. The intervening years have provided a different perspective worth a rating change in 2019. ***** “What’s the most resilient parasite? A bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm?” “What Mr. Cobb is trying to say—“ “An idea. Resilient, highly contagious. Once an idea’s taken hold […]
