Thoughts on the 2014 Best Picture Oscar Contenders

gravity-movie

It took until the Thursday before Oscar Sunday to finally view each and every one of the Best Picture Oscar nominees.  Here are my thoughts on each of the films, and my prediction for the Best Picture winner. In the theater, especially in IMAX, Gravity was a visual spectacle.  It certainly helps to convey the […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Willkommen” by Joel Grey from the film “Cabaret”

45-adapter-logo2

A funny thing happened to the Broadway Musical Cabaret during its adaptation to the big screen. It lost ten out of its original fifteen songs. Many of the original Broadway songs were in the play to express the emotions of the characters and move the plot line forward, something that the medium of film was […]

Booth Reviews: Gangster Squad with Ryan Gosling and Sean Penn

Gangster-squad2

Once again I have to give credit to the people who are responsible for putting together the trailers for movies. Way too often the trailers turn out to be better then the movies themselves. Or at the least they show bits of the best parts of the movie. A good trailer will entice or sucker […]

Booth Reviews – “Zero Dark Thirty” with Jessica Chastain

zero-dark-thirty-chastain

It’s interesting that the two movies that will likely duke it out for Best Picture at the Academy Awards are both epic films on different parts of our nation’s history. “Lincoln” covers the final days of our 16th President as the Civil War came to an end and along with it,  the abolishment of slavery. […]

Booth Reviews: “This Is 40″ and “Guilt Trip”

this-is-40

A holiday twofer as I saw a pair of movies over the weekend (“This is 40″ and “Guilt Trip”). Neither was great but both kept my interest enough to give them passing grades. “This is 40″ is the follow up to “Knocked Up” in which Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise their roles as  a […]

Booth Reviews: Lincoln with Daniel Day Lewis

Lincoln-Daniel-Day-Lewis

The movie “Lincoln” was everything it was hyped up to be and more. Not the most exciting of films ever made but the acting and direction was top notch. Daniel Day Lewis (maybe the best actor of his generation) has already garnered two best acting awards. And with his stunning portrayal of our sixteenth President […]

Booth Reviews: Skyfall with Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig in Skyfall (United Artists)

“Bond, James Bond.” I was in love with the 007 movies the first time I saw Sean Connery on screen and I’ve looked forward to all 23 of them ever since. The latest installment in the 50 year history is titled,  ”Skyfall.” Many critics are calling this the best Bond movie ever. Those critics are […]

Booth Reviews: Flight with Denzel Washington

We’re getting near the end of the calendar, and that means we’re getting some of the better movies of the year. Very recently “Argo” came out and undoubtedly will be nominated in the Best Picture category. And now you can add “Flight” to that same list. I’m sure you’ve all seen the incredible trailers for […]

Movie Review – Argo

argo-movie-ben-affleck-bryan-cranston

Simply put, “Argo” is one of the best movies of the year and will definitely be nominated as such when the Academy Awards come out later on. Ben Affleck directs and stars as real life CIA operative, Tony Mendez who led one of the great escapes in history getting six Americans out of Tehran during […]

Movie Review: Trouble With The Curve

trouble-with-curve

It never ceases to amaze me how big time entertainers can be so polished when they have a script to work with and look so goofy without one. Ever notice how silly some of the biggest names in Hollywood are when they appear on the various talk shows? A case in point is Clint Eastwood. […]

Movie Review – Total Recall

total-recall-colin-farrell-jessica-biel-

Many of you know this is a reboot of the 1990 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone.  That movie is loosely based on a short story by sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick called “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.” I’m not sure why some critics have thumbed their noses at the 2012 version […]

Movie Review: Batman – The Dark Knight Rises

batman-dark-knight

I had an array of emotions even before going to see the latest Batman flick, “The Dark Knight Rises”. This was just a little more then twenty-four hours after the senseless and horrific incident out in Colorado. Normally movies are a form of escapism from the real world but on this occasion how could anybody […]

Movie Review – Ted

ted-movie

I have to admit that I was skeptical about the movie “Ted” when I initially saw the trailers a few months back. After all, how good can a movie about a teddy bear coming to life actually be? Well seeing was believing, as it was two hours of creativity, emotion, and definitely a lot of […]

Movie Review: Men in Black 3

Men-in-Black-3

So far the summer has produced a few blockbusters (The Avengers) a few busts (Dark Shadows) and one pleasant surprise (Men In Black 3.) Fortunately, the third installment of the MIB franchise has some fresh, original ideas, although time travel isn’t one of them. It’s always a crapshoot with time travel in movies, because of […]
