Hugo [2011] ★★★½

“Hugo” is a brilliant movie to begin with, but not without its two stars, 14 year old Asa Butterfield (“The Boy With The Striped Pajamas”) and Chloe Moretz (“Let Me In”). At first glance, the man who directed such masterpieces as “Raging Bull” and “Goodfellas” might seem like […]

The Artist [2011] ★★★★

My favorite movie of the year is not a blockbuster or a superhero movie or even Harry Potter. It’s a movie called “The Artist”, a black and white silent film with subtitles and all. In many ways-hell in all ways-“The Artist” is a stunningly beautiful film. There were […]

Warrior [2011] ★★★½

A movie that gives you rooting interest, as soon as it opens, and keeps coming at you, could best be described as a triumph. “Warrior”, from director Gavin O’ Connor takes place in the world of mixed martial arts. It is violent, blunt, powerful. You name it. But […]

50/50 [2011]

“50/50” is a comedy about cancer. That’s right, I said comedy and cancer in one sentence. How the makers of this terrific film created a story about a young man’s battle with cancer that manages to be heartbreaking and funny at the same time is still a mystery […]

The Help [2011] ★★★½

Nothing heats up an Oscar race like an underdog for best picture. On the surface, “The Help” sounds like a movie that’s been done so many times before: the well-to-do white folks and their black servants in a Southern Town in the 1960’s. But it doesn’t take this captivating […]

Senna [2011]

Fantastic documentary chronicles the life and death of Formula one legend Ayrton Senna, from his days as a go-kart racer, to his debut as a professional driver, his rivalry with Alain Prost (that includes him winning the title three times), and ultimately his tragic death on May 1st […]

Midnight In Paris [2011] ★★★½

Looking for an excellent movie to watch? I’d vouch for “Midnight In Paris”, a romantic and magical film from the artist known as Woody Allen. Allen may have missed with his previous movie “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger”, but “Midnight In Paris” is both entertaining and […]

Drive [2011] ★★★½

Fasten your seat belts for the mind blowing “Drive”, an incredible movie that has Steve McQueen’s bad-ass attitude written all over it, and style to rival the best car pictures ever made. Damn, it felt good. If there ever was an award for coolest movie of the year, […]
