‘Playing for Keeps’ Review: Hollywood Needs More Ideas in Rom-Com Genre

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There are several different types of romantic comedies. There are the films that make their mark in romantic American cinema, like the classics “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle”; there are the fun, memorable ones that my generation grew up with, like “She’s All That” and “10 Things I Hate About You”; and […]

‘Movie 43’ Review: Provocative, Offensive, Plain Stupid

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Yes, “Movie 43” is funny, weird and majorly offensive all at the same time, the problem is the funny doesn’t continue in the last hour and twenty minutes; the movie is a painful hour and a half long. “Movie 43” is one of those films that starts off as a 4/5, with the first story […]

When it comes to animation, it’s especially hard to match the […]

I, along with other WAFCA members sat down with the stars of Antoine Fuqua’s newest film Olympus Has Fallen. Butler discusses the crazy fan reactions he’s received in promotion of the film and Fuqua talks about the balance of making a fun action film that handles serious subject matter. Eckhart says which United States President […]

‘Machine Gun Preacher’ Review: Butler Proves He’s More Than Just a Pretty Face

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Gerard Butler began his career by playing good-looking, muscular men like King Leonidas in ‘300.’ But too often the parts Butler chose were one-dimensional, like the sexist relationship advice writer who falls in love with Katherine Heigl in ‘The Ugly Truth.’ The same can be said of his performance in 2010’s ‘The Bounty Hunter,’ where […]
