Movie review: Mud

By MIRANDA FORESMAN Matthew McConaughey has come a long way since Dazed and Confused (1993). He’s played a surfer, a pimp, couple of good lawyers, a womanizer, and many things in between. Lately he seems to play the guy without... (Continue reading)

Movie review: Oz the Great and Powerful

By MIRANDA FORESMAN Oz the Great and Powerful looked so very promising with its bright colors and cast of stars. The finished product, however, suffers greatly from those very same elements. For clarification, Oz the Great and Powerful is not... (Continue reading)

Movie review: Warm Bodies

By MIRAND FORESMAN When I heard Warm Bodies, the novel by Isaac Marion, was being made into a movie, I thought to myself, “Well, that’ll be a fun adaptation.” After screening this weekend’s box office champ, indeed it appears as... (Continue reading)

Movie review: Gangster Squad

By MIRANDA FORESMAN Gangster Squad had potential. Not the blow-you-out-of-your-seats potential, and certainly not summer-blockbuster potential, but maybe future-cult-favorite potential.

By MIRANDA FORESMAN I like mob movies, all kinds of mob movies. Everything from The Departed (2006) to Scarface (1983), all the way back to The Big Sleep (1946). Killing Them Softly is not like those movies. It doesn’t have... (Continue reading)

Movie review: Skyfall

By MIRANDA FORESMAN I have a soft spot for 007, and I always have. Like many women, when I was younger, Sean Connery as James Bond was the ideal man, shaken, not stirred. And the accent. That’s not a voice... (Continue reading)

Movie review: Cloud Atlas

By MIRANDA FORESMAN I don’t suggest seeing Cloud Atlas unless you are in a particularly open-minded state and willing to be confused. For three hours. The collaboration between the directors (the Wachowskis of Matrix fame and Tom Tykwer, known for... (Continue reading)

Movie review: Argo

By MIRANDA FORESMAN My Entertainment Weekly told me about Oscar whispers for Argo back in the summer. Even though, by nature, I am not typically a fan of political or historical movies, I’ve been keeping an eye out. As the... (Continue reading)
