‘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 […]

Noomi Rapace reunites with Niels Arden Oplev, who directed her in the 2009 Swedish film, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, we are bound to see some new Christmas movies hit the big screen and some favorites that always replay on television the closer we get to the holiday.

‘Sabotage’ Review: Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington & Olivia Williams

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Arnold fans…this isn’t the film we were hoping for or expecting. 2013’s The Last Stand wasn’t the best, but at least it offered a few good one-liners and brought Arnold back to the type of character that is enjoyable to watch. In his newest film Sabotage, Arnold plays a kickass DEA agent, out for revenge. […]
