Chuck

We have to thank Chuck Wepner for taking on Muhammad Ali, because of the inspiration he’s given in Bayonne, NJ, and for inspiring the movie “Rocky.” That’s right. It’s the real Rocky Balboa, only his nickname, as much as he… Read More ›

The Wall

I just reviewed two action movies this week. The first is the choppy “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” which lasted only two hours, and “The Wall,” director Doug Liman’s latest war drama, which lasted only 80 minutes. “The Wall”… Read More ›

Tomorrow Ever After

My mother told me that one of her cousins has a cameo role in an Indie film called “Tomorrow Ever After.” His name is Dan Rovner, and he plays a security guard, who is just a background character. Unfortunately, I… Read More ›

Norman

The subtitle of “Norman” is “The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer.” The results of that subtitle are weird, honest, comical, and riveting on all accounts. It features one of the best ensembles in one of… Read More ›

The Lost City of Z

“The Lost City of Z” doesn’t just show the characters exploring new jungles; it shows the challenges and fundings of those explorations. Writer/director James Gray, in probably his best film to date, has shown us the beauty of nature, the… Read More ›

Gifted

Man, these number movies these days are really inspiring and smart. “The Wolf of Wall Street” spent our money on cocaine and sex; “The Accountant” managed to combine Autism, math, and criminals very well; and “Hidden Figures” deserved to be… Read More ›
