DC Film Girl’s Year In Review: The Best & Worst of 2015

Posted on December 30th, 2015 by admin@dcfilmgirl

After seeing 220 films, compiling over 50 written reviews and conducting interviews from Bryan Cranston, Alicia Vikander and Richard Gere, 2015 was a good year (for myself!) and at the movies! Not a great year but a good year! There are some fantastic films that came out this year, some like we have never seen […]

‘Joy’ Review: Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper & Robert De Niro

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Is there anything more joyous than a Jennifer Lawrence movie opening on Christmas Day? Lawrence re-teams with director David O. Russell and her Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle co-stars in Joy, a film about the woman behind the Miracle Mop, her struggle in creating and manufacturing it and her dysfunctional family structure. But this […]

One word: wow. It’s impossible to encompass one’s feelings after seeing the new Star Wars film in theatres, but wow can begin to describe it.

‘Room’ Review: Starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay & Joan Allen

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There are not many performances that are better this year than Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay. It will be a travesty if neither gets nominated for an Oscar nomination, with Tremblay getting a nom for Best Actor. These two actors gave wonderful performances as mother and son, and with a beautiful relatability considering that the […]

‘Steve Jobs’ Review: Starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet & Jeff Daniels

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Steve Jobs is not your typical biopic. The film takes place over three different years (1984, 1988 and 1998) and set before each iconic product launch that Steve Jobs was behind. Steve Jobs acts more like a three-act play rather than a traditional film. Following Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender), the mastermind and co-founder of Apple, […]

‘The Martian’ Review: Starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain & Jeff Daniels

Movies set in space have become increasingly popular in recent years. It seems every year there is always one big space movie. In 2012 it was Prometheus; in 2013 it was Gravity; and last year it was Interstellar. This year it’s The Martian, and director Ridley Scott and our lead star Matt Damon certainly know […]
