The Choice [2016]

This terrible tearjerker from the king of cheese himself Nicholas Sparks could well be his worst ever. You know who Sparks is, the guy who writes bestselling romance that become awful movies, such as “Dear John”, “The Last Song” and “Safe Haven”. The newest Sparks is “The Choice”, about two […]


How To Be Single [2016]

 It doesn’t break any new grounds, but “How To Be Single” provides light entertainment for anyone seeking a chick flick for Valentine’s weekend. Built on a template that’s familiar to anyone who has seen such movies as “Bridget Jones’ Diary” and “He’s Just Not That Into You”, this comedy […]


The Finest Hours [2016]

 As far as sea disaster movies go, this one isn’t bad. But if there’s anything I learned from Hollywood it’s that a true story doesn’t always guarantee a great movie, and “The Finest Hours” is proof of that. But at least I can begin on a positive note: […]


Youth [2015]

 “Youth” is a beautiful, must see movie starring one of my all time favorite actors: Michael Caine. Caine is an actor of stature who is also a movie star with genuine glamour. In Paolo Sorentino’s masterful film, he plays a retired orchestra conductor who is spending his summer […]


Dirty Grandpa [2016]

 The worst movie of the year so far has a fine chance of retaining the title for the rest of the year. Robert De Niro’s career hits all time low (give him an award for worst performance already), playing a perverted grandpa (*cringes*) who goes on a road […]


Sisters [2015]

 Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are a funny duo. We know it. They know it. So watching them in a movie together for the first time since 2008’s “Baby Mama” sounds like an instant hit. Well…not entirely. But at least I can begin on a positive note: Fey and […]

Concussion [2015]

“Concussion” is far from being a perfect movie, but it has an intriguing story to tell and just the right actor to bring it to life: Will Smith. Smith, like you’ve never seen him before, plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who uncovers the shocking truth about brain […]

Truffaut: the adventures of Antoine Doinel

Way before “ Boyhood ”, François Roland Truffaut, French film director, screenwriter, producer, actor, and film critic, as well as one of the founders of the French New Wave, directed “ Les 400 coups ” (“ The 400 blows ”), a childhood movie featuring his own alter ego: Antoine Doinel. Years later, Doinel appears in […]


Ride Along 2 [2016]

Because the first one wasn’t bad enough, here comes part 2, a dreadful collection of ridiculously stupid gags that director Tim Story tries to polish, to no avail. Kevin Hart is now a rookie cop who is trying to prove himself (once again) to his soon-to-be brother in […]
