Terse Twitter Movie Reviews- Vol. 5

  JASON BOURNE 3.5 out of 5 stars Damon is relentless in his return to the reliable action we crave. At the same time, it overpowers an undermining, less than rousing story that’s infrequent for this franchise. But adding the dazzling Vikander is a clever move & only helps ignore some of the sequel’s weaknesses. INDIGNATION 4 out 5 stars Sewn together by beautiful artistry & a mature, splendid performance by Lerman, this poignant story is about ideas…

SPECIAL FEATURE and REVIEW : The Revenant

SPECIAL FEATURE and REVIEW : The Revenant

What can I tell you about The Revenant that you haven’t already heard? The director was a slave driver. The crew left in droves due to the inhumane conditions. Studio heads hyperventilated as the budget ballooned. Many of these things were said of another other film Leonardo DiCaprio starred in. The one about the boat? Yeah. And that won a gazillion Oscars if you remember. The five star reviews don’t help *guilty*, because then comes…

Terse Twitter Movie Reviews- Vol. 4

Ghostbusters (2016) 3 out of 5 stars No need to compare to the original. Still,it knows its roots w/ a fabulous cast enlivening this frivolous yet diverting reboot. Maybe not in full force, but its spirit is there & can be savored. Believe it or not, Hemsworth nearly steals all of the laughs from the ladies. Our Kind of Traitor 2.5 out of 5 stars McGregor & Skarsgard give enthralling performances in a tightly wound, yet generic tradecraft…

But before we got too excited, there was a storm full of disappointment and despair which rolled in. A movie’s hopes and dreams swirling into a studio’s…
