All About Eve (1950) Magnificent.  That is the one word I can finally use to sum up at film.  It is not because I have been watching meaningless drivel lately.  It is because “All About Eve” is a truly wonderful film.  It is classic that makes today’s films seem like garbage. I’m not padding my liking of the film.  It did garner 14 Oscar nominations in 1950, and it won six, including Best Picture, Director and Screenplay.  Unfortunately, the women of the film got robbed, neither of the leading women winning the Best Actress category.  Still, “All About Eve” has everything that a film needs, something that really doesn’t come along very often. “All About Eve” is a deep and engaging story about the aging of women in theater (a stand in for Hollywood) and the trend for younger actresses to take their place in contrast ...

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (Collector's Edition) (2010) One could say it was inevitable that a sequel would eventually rise from “Wall Street.”  However, it is unlikely that audiences would think that Oliver Stone would have anything to do with the offspring.  But it is just that.  Stone has resurrected his baby from 1987 to show how much the economy has changed and relationship between humankind and finances. “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” offers up some interesting moments, but ultimately falls flat as a follow-up.  The film lacks coherency and development.  With the state of our current economy, there is so much that could have been done with this film to really nail the message of greed and corruption, much like its predecessor.  However, the film flips back and forth between highlighting the subplots and highlighting the main plot.  The characters lack dimensionality and ultimately contribute the most to ...

Town, The (2010) Ben Affleck has become a more prolific filmmaker than anyone would have thought from his early days in Kevin Smith productions.  However, “Good Will Hunting” pretty much changed all that.  No an award winning filmmaker, Affleck was able to go on and act in serious drama/action films and begin his solo filmmaking career. “Gone Baby Gone” was a gritty crime thriller that for some reason or another brings “Pride And Glory” to mind, although, “Gone Baby Gone” was infinitely better than the latter.  Now, Affleck has directed and starred in “The Town” which garnered Oscar buzz from the moment it was released.  I can remember hearing whispers abound when this little, non-blockbuster film hit theaters back in September. Unfortunately, there really isn’t anything that drives me to the theaters these days.  I just assume as much to wait for disc to be ...

Mother And Child (2010) When is the last time that you sat and watched a movie that kept you interested without needing to have fancy visual effects?  Well, “Mother And Child” can do just that.  This is a film that falls under all of the cliché descriptors like, “heart-wrenching,” “emotional journey,” etc.  And while those may be clichéd terms, they are highly accurate for this film. “Mother And Child” is a interweaved story, connecting the lives of three different women.  Sure the outcome is predictable for anyone really paying attention, but the journey is engrossing.  The story and its characters are brought to life by a powerful cast that leaves you breathless. It is hard to talk about plot for this film without giving away what could potentially be surprises for some viewers, so I will provide a more general overview.  Annette Bening portrays Karen, a ...

Kids Are All Right, The (2010) “The Kids Are All Right” lies in that batch in which you probably love it or hate it.  I am going to try to be objective here.  While I didn’t really hate it, it left me bored.  I don’t need action, adventure or sci-fi to be entertained, but this drama just simply doesn’t cut it for me.  Others will likely disagree and that is fine. I have never been one for family dynamics films.  Whether they all get along, which is virtually never, or they fight from beginning to end is of little interest to me.  Any heartwarming or slightly engaging sequences within a film like this gets lost amidst the bickering.  You get enough of that in life, why do I want to sit through nearly two hours of it? I think I laughed maybe twice during the film.  There are ...
