Entitled, The (2011) Bottom line first?  Well, “The Entitled” could have been much more than it turned out to be.  However, I think that if it had been developed any further it would have been immediately recognizable as one of those, “I’ve seen this before” films.  At the same time, the film does have a drawing quality to it.  It walks a very fine line.  But when push comes to shove, it ranks more as an underdevelopment short film project. Paul Dynan (Kevin Zegers) is a kid a few years out of college, with an unknown field of study.  He works a dead-end job trying time and time again to get into corporate America.  His mother is ill, his father is an unknown and the family’s financial outlook it not good.  With the turn of events in Paul’s life, he hatches a plan to ...

Source Code (2011) Alright, Hollywood, say it with me, “originality.”  Now, was that so hard?  “Source Code” is Hollywood’s latest product combining every major sci-fi film premise in the past decade.  Sure, there is some entertainment value here.  But where are the stories that leave an audience stunned or thinking. “Source Code” combines the premises of “Back To The Future,” “Déjà vu,” “Unstoppable” and several other well-known films of the recent past.  I don’t mind that so much, but the filmmakers didn’t take this film anywhere new.  It just throws all the films into one. The film takes place somewhere in the present or near future, though this is speculation as no time period is set.  Jake Gyllenhaal is a captain in the Air Force and finds himself in the middle of a time experiment project.  He is being sent into the past to find ...

Sanctum (2011) “Sanctum” is really, really easy to explain.  Think “127 Hours,” but turned Hollywood.  “Sanctum” is like someone in Hollywood said, “we need something to compete with ‘127 Hours,’ what other incredible life stories are out there?” The film is based loosely on Andrew Wight’s real life and death situation.  Unfortunately, Hollywood has taken its liberties.  It is surprising to see that Wight was a co-writer and producer of the film.  “Sanctum” has a good movie in it, but Hollywood’s pizzazz has taken its toll.  The film would have been much better had it just remained true to the original story and exaggerated a great deal. Frank McGuire is a nomad cave diver.  He dives for the thrill, adventure and education.  Caves are the last places on earth that have yet to be explored.  This isn’t exactly true, but we’ll go with it.  ...

Black Swan (2010) “Black Swan” comes from the mind of Darren Aronofsky and embodies the spirit of his past works as well as giving nods to other filmmakers of the genre, such as David Lynch.  The film is sure to spark controversy among audiences.  However, for those that are interested in this type of work are sure to love this film.  Others may find it a bit fruitless. This is not one of those films that you can casually sit down and watch.  It cannot be viewed without thought or intent.  “Black Swan” demands your full attention, and for once some actual brainpower.  I know, brainpower for a film.  “Black Swan” is filled with deeper meanings and twists that make you contemplate on the story and images.  For many that are not used to a intricate film, it may take a few viewings to ...

All Good Things (2009) “All Good Things” is a difficult one to place.  It had a tough start.  The film changed hands between directors and production companies, finally landing with Magnolia and limited theatrical release.  The sales at the box office didn’t even come close to covering the estimated budget of the film.  Let’s face it most of rarely here of limited theatrical releases, let alone go see them.  Hopefully the film will do better on home video. The film is not the best film of the year, but it ranks in the upper half.  This is labeled as a true-crime drama.  “All Good Things” tells us the story of New York’s most famous disappearance, Kathleen McCormack.  But the story is really that of Robert Durst, or in the case of the film David Marks.  In early 2000s, Durst was put on trial for the ...
