‘Joyful Noise’ Review: If ‘Glee’ Went Gospel…

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

…it would look a lot like “Joyful Noise.” Which, may turn some people off, but in this case, it’s what kept this film rockin’ and rollin’! Vi Rose Hill (Queen Latifah) has just been promoted to choral director of her small, struggling church in Pacashau, Georgia and is an overworked mother of two teenagers, Olivia […]

‘Contraband’ Review: Average Wahlberg Action Flick

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Mark Wahlberg has been in some fast paced, fun action films. The first ones that come to mind are The Italian Job, The Departed and Shooter, yes I did enjoy Shooter. His name alone can certainly sell an action film, but can the star turn a convoluted plot into a fascinating story? Not in this […]

‘Haywire’ Review: Gina Carano is Amazing!

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Move over Angelina and Umu, Gina Carano is here and she’s about to kick some serious butt in the action movie industry. Let me just say, I love a great kick-ass girl flick. Some of the best include Kill Bill Vol. 1, Salt, Hanna and even the cheesy Charlie’s Angels flicks and the Underworld movies […]

‘Underworld Awakening’ Review: Fans of Franchise Will Be Pleased

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The Underworld films are not made for critics, nor are they made for people who don’t understand the ‘vampire craze’, but if you love action films involving hundreds of guns, kicking some werewolf butt and Kate Beckinsale in a corset, then you’ve come to the right place. This film was not screened for critics and […]

‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’ Review: Overly Obnoxious & Completely Confusing

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Extremely Loud & Incredible Close might also be considered as “Overly Obnoxious and Completely Confusing.” Based on the book by Jonathan Safran Foer, it seems as if a 9-year-old boy who is struggling with his father’s death from 9/11 might make for a wonderful film adaption and it probably could have, if the story had […]

‘One For the Money’ Review: Where’s Snooki & Pauly D?

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Director Julie Ann Robinson would have been better served if Snooki had been cast as the lead role. No seriously, at least she would’ve added legitimate Jersey spunk to the film! Even if they gave Pauly D a quick cameo, that would’ve gained a few laughs from me. One For the Money is set in […]

‘Pina’ Review: A Stunningly Shot 3D Documentary

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

A fantastic new way to see how 3D is capable of telling a story properly, rather throwing it into an overrated action movie or children’s animation feature. Pina tells the story of German choreographer Pina Bausch through the eyes and movement of her acclaimed ensemble, the Tanztheater Wuppertal. Bausch was named choreographer by the director […]
