‘Admission’ Review: Nothing Romantic About This Comedy

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Any film that makes the lovely and talented Tina Fey look like an idiot has got to be garbage. Admission is a weird and messily directed film with a terrible screenplay. In the trailers, Admission is marketed as a romantic comedy focusing on a woman who is struggling to find happiness and one who is […]

‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Review: Chu’s Action Can’t Beat Dumb Plot

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The good news is that G.I. Joe: Retaliation is 10x better than the original, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra; the bad news is that even behind all the muscular and handsome talent, the film is still not great. To give you a little background, the film’s release date was delayed eight months so that […]

‘The Host’ Review: Fans of Meyer’s Sci-Fi Novel Will Enjoy

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight Saga” has a completely separate fan base than that of her adult novel, “The Host.” I don’t foresee thousands of Twilight fans flocking to the theatres this weekend to check out The Host because “Nothing will ever be as pure and good as Bella and Edward’s relationship!!” With that being said, The […]

‘Jurassic Park 3D’ Review: Spielberg’s Sci-Fi Thriller Remains a Masterpiece

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There are only a few films that still hold up decades after their release date. Titanic was re-released into the theatres last year, celebrating its 15th anniversary in beautifully converted 3D, gracefully enhancing the story as it unfolds on screen. Films like Titanic, Jurassic Park and Terminator 2: Judgment Day are better than many films […]

‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ Review: A Gritty, Shocking and Emotional Drama

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The Place Beyond The Pines is a beautiful, emotional and realistic story of how one man’s legacy comes full circle within the life of his son. Derek Clanfrance’s (Blue Valentine) film is not an easy one to watch; but when the film ends, you’ll walk out knowing that you just saw a remarkable and honest […]

’42’ Review: Baseball Fans Will Enjoy Jackie Robinson Biopic

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Baseball movies will never get old in my book. You could have a less than average screenplay about a baseball film and it would still be enjoyable. I grew up around baseball fanatics who grinded America’s favorite pastime into my brain whether I liked it or not. America’s game is special, powerful and an all-around […]

‘Trance’ Review: Boyle’s Thriller is a Brilliant Mind-Bender

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Fans on Inception: This is a film for you. Prepare to have your mind warped, shocked and whipped in director/writer Danny Boyle’s (127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire) newest thriller, Trance. Simon (James McAvoy) is a fine art auctioneer, working in London at one of the most prestigious art houses in the world. In order to […]
