2 Guns



2-guns-denzel-wahlberg

Directed by: Baltasar Kormakur
Written by: Blake Masters
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, James Marsden, Fred Ward, Edward Olmos
Studio: Universal
Genre: Action, Crime
Official Site:
Plot: Two undercover agents - DEA and Naval Intelligence - find themselves unlikely allies after a bank robbery puts them in the crosshairs of a drug cartel, the Navy, and a CIA accountant.

Review:

The buddy/action genre was king in the late '80s and early '90s, before it turned into parody, and subsequently was swallowed up by comedy, with the work of Edgar Wright, Adam McKay, and Paul Feig having a lot more in common with the buddy vibe of something like "48 Hrs." than most straight entries. So "2 Guns" gets points for just trying. But it also deserves credit for actually being entertaining...[more]...

The Wolf of Wall Street



Wolf_of_wall_street_ver4

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Terence Winter
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: The rise and fall of Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort.

Review:

Sex, drugs, and greed permeate every corner of the screen for the full three hours on this fifth collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, and my personal favorite. "Wolf of Wall Street" feels cut from the same cloth as Scorsese's best collaborations with Robert De Niro. Like "Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull" and "King of Comedy" it deals mainly with the psychology of one man, but like "Goodfellas" and "Casino" it also tackles the epic story of a criminal enterprise. "Goodfellas" in particular shares DNA with this tale, as both Henry Hill and Jordan Belfort started out at the bottom and worked their way up. But while cocaine was the downfall of Henry Hill, for Belfort, it is only the beginning...[more]...

This is the End



Thisistheend-character2

Directed by: Seth Rogen
Written by: Seth Rogen

Review:

If you are a fan of Judd Apatow movies, and the majority of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's scripted films, then you will probably enjoy this one. While not necessary, knowing some of the references in their filmographies doesn't hurt...[more]...

Gangster Squad



Gangster-squad-ban

Directed by: Ruben Fleischer
Written by: Will Beall
Cast: Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Anthony Mackie, Michael Pena, Robert Patrick, Giovanni Ribisi, Frank Grillo
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Drama
Official Site: www.gangstersquadmovie.com
Plot: Inspired loosely on the LAPD outfit that brought down Mickey Cohen.

Review:

When it was first announced, with the cast (in particular Sean Penn, who I pegged as being just right for playing the role of Mickey Cohen) I was excited. I've got a soft spot for gangster movies, and gangster history, and Meyer Harris "Mickey" Cohen has only really featured in a supporting capacity in movies like "Bugsy" and "L.A. Confidential." That this movie was allegedly based on articles written about that time in the L.A. Times sounded promising. And while it may have sounded like "The Untouchables" on paper, surely, because this was true (and because the real Untouchables barely got in a scrape with Capone), it might actually be the kind of film I was waiting for...[more]...

Man of Steel



Manofsteelsymbolposter800

Directed by: Zack Snyder
Written by: David Goyer
Cast: Julia Ormond, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Harry Lennix, Christopher Meloni
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book, Science-Fiction
Official Site: www.manofsteel.com
Plot: Superman origin story.

Review:

Starting out of the gate, I really liked this movie. I'd stop short of actually "loving" this movie, but I did really like it. There's a lot of good stuff here, and I was a little surprised how fun it was, since in this day and age you cannot always count on your super-heroes to be fun. At the same time, if this thing WASN'T fun that would be a violation of the cardinal rule of a Superman movie. So, good job Mr. Snyder on keeping my mind occupied with the spectacle here...[more]...

The Way of the Gun



2000-poster-way_of_the_gun-1

Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie
Written by: Christopher McQuarrie
Cast: James Caan, Benicio Del Toro, Taye Diggs, Henry Griffin, Mando Guerrero, Jan Jensen, Nicky Katt, Dylan Kussman, Kristin Lehman, Geoffrey Lewis, Juliette Lewis, Andres Orozco, Jose Perez, Ryan Phillippe, Neil Pollock, Irene Santiago, Sarah Silverman, Scott Wilson
Studio: Artisan Entertainment
Genre: Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: Two lowlifes kidnap a surrogate mother for ransom.

Review:

When I first watched this movie over a decade ago, all I remember was feeling disappointed it didn't live up to the promise Christopher McQuarrie made with "The Usual Suspects." But parts of the film nevertheless stuck with me, particularly after I became acquainted with the work of Sam Peckinpah, who definitely gets a big nod from McQuarrie here. And while this is still a very flawed movie, it's still fun to see what works...[more]...

Killing Them Softly



8163268965_a75b5df36d_o

Directed by: Andrew Dominik
Written by: Andrew Dominik
Cast: Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, Max Casella, Sam Shepard
Studio: The Weinstein Company
Genre: Crime, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: When a mob-protected card game gets robbed, the bosses send in enforcer Jackie Cogan to police the situation.

Review:

Having both read the book, and seen the movie "Friends of Eddie Coyle," I knew beforehand to expect an unglamorous mob story about crooks who look at their lot in life with a bit more cynicism than in most mob movies. To these lowlifes what they do isn't opportunism, it's just work. And that's part of what I liked about this movie. Dare I say, this gangster movie feels down-right European. Like something Jean-Pierre Melville or Jules Dassin would have made back in their time...[more]...

Magic Mike



Magicmikeposter2

Directed by: Steven Soderbergh
Written by: Reid Carolin
Cast: Alex Pettyfer, Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Official Site: www.magicmikemovie.com
Plot: A talented male stripper becomes mentor to a young recruit at the same time as he's trying to find a way out.

Review:

It may sound ridiculous, but I'm just going to say it. This was the best Steven Soderbergh movie I've seen in years. Granted, he's enough of a workaholic director that I haven't seen all his most recent work, but as much as I admire the man, he has a tendency at times to get in his own way. The movie that led to this one, where he and Channing Tatum met, "Haywire," promised to be a badass, female-led action thriller, which would have been great if Soderbergh hadn't left certain basic questions unanswered until the very end (like why is such a valuable asset suddenly a target by her employer...[more]...

Black Snake Moan

Directed by: Craig Brewer
Written by: Craig Brewer
Cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci, Justin Timberlake, S. Epetha Merkerson
Studio: Paramount Classics
Genre: Drama
Official Site: www.moanmovie.com
Plot: A God-fearing former bluesman attempts to cure a nymphomaniac by chaining her to his heater.

Review:

Craig Brewer, hot off of his Sundance sleeper "Hustle and Flo," decided to tackle another musical genre with this modern fable, this time moving the action from urban Memphis to rural Tennessee, and switching the music from hip-hop to blues...[more]...

Dredd



Dredd_poster_big

Directed by: Pete Travis
Written by: Alex Garland
Cast: Karl Urban, Lena Headey, Olivia Thirlby
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Science-Fiction
Official Site: www.dreddthemovie.com
Plot: Judge Dredd and his rookie partner, clairvoyant Cassandra Anderson, find themselves trapped inside the Peach Tree slum complex, targeted by scarfaced drug kingpin Mama Madrigal.

Review:

Dredd 3D has made quite a reputation for itself as one of the more underrated gems of 2012. Now, I can go on a tangent about reasons this movie didn't do big business, but really, all that is beside toe point. What is the point? That Dredd is a damn fun movie...[more]...
