Review – Hail, Caesar!

Hail Caesar

Hail, Caesar! Written, directed and produced by Joel and Ethan Coen, is a film that takes a charming and at times innocent look back at the making of films in 1950’s Hollywood. Fast and enjoyable dialogue controls the scenes, while the Coen’s expert ability to construct and shoot comedy backs it up.

There’s a lot to love in Hail, Caesar but there’s also a lot that left me wanting, when it was all said and done. Read more

Review – Tomorrowland: A World Beyond

Tomorrowland

Tomorrow Land: A World Beyond, directed by Brad Bird is a fun film (get ready to hear the word fun used a lot during this review) that harkens back to the enjoyable family films that don’t really exist today, but is one that also benefits from the modern day betterments of film making. An inspiring film for kids and a poignant look upon the state of our world today, all make for a film that offers more than it first perceives to. Read more
