TIFF 2014: Black and White Review

Black and White Gala Kevin Costner reteams with filmmaker Mike Binder (The Upside of Anger, Reign Over Me) for an “inspired by true events” custody battle between members of an extended mixed race family. It’s every bit as manipulative as it sounds, but it works more often than it fails. Alcoholic lawyer Elliott (Costner) now […]

Draft Day Review

3 Days to Kill Review

Alarmingly misguided, horribly directed, astoundingly racist, and insanely incomprehensible, the McG/Luc Besson/Kevin Costner team-up 3 Days to Kill best's last week's previous low water mark set by Winter's Tale as the worst major studio release of 2013 so far, leading us further down one of the worst starts to any year in film history.

It’s tough to tell if hardcore fans of Jack Ryan will be delighted or disgusted when it comes to Kenneth Branagh’s reboot of Tom Clancy’s beloved spy. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has some decent moments or action and a solid lead in Chris Pine, but it’s far too inconsistent and formulaic to be a good film.

Man of Steel Review

Although it might be still somewhat of an unsubtle disappointment, Man of Steel offers enough action and promise for the future, particularly from Henry Cavill in the lead and even from Zack Snyder in the director's seat.

The image shows Henry Cavill as the titular 'Man of Steel' showing off the squareness of his jaw in a suit that replaces the vintage spandex look with the recycled basketball one people seem to really like these days.
