‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Review: DiCaprio’s Best Performance To Date

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The Wolf of Wall Street marks the fifth collaboration between director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio (previously Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed and Shutter Island). I adore Martin Scorsese and I love Leonardo DiCaprio, so when these two team up for a film, it’s the purest movie magic of all and […]

‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ Review: Stiller’s Magical Comedy Fun for Everyone

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

If you’re looking for a feel-good, family friendly flick with a touch of comedy this holiday season, Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is the movie for you. This isn’t Stiller’s usual wacky comedy like Zoolander or Tropic Thunder; Stiller broadens his directorial range and acting skills in this film about a daydreamer […]

‘Lone Survivor’ Review: Patriotic, Courageous & Brutal

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Lone Survivor is extremely well acted, realistically shot and one of the most patriotic films I’ve seen in years. At the end of the film, you will feel especially proud to be an American and have even more respect for the men who fight for our country. Based on the New York Times bestseller, Lone […]

‘The Monuments Men’ Review: Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

I can’t remember the last time I felt more blasé about a film with an immensely talented cast and director. The Monuments Men is a film about incredible people who did something extraordinary, yet the characters were given little to no backstory and felt disconnected from the cause and each other. With the exception of […]

‘About Last Night’ Review: Starring Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart & Regina Hall

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Kevin Hart is one of the funniest actors and comedians in Hollywood. For someone who usually isn’t a fan of stand-up comedy, I thoroughly enjoyed his film last year titled Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain and he always manages to steal every scene he’s in. The main problem in About Last Night, is that there’s […]

‘Non-Stop’ Review: Starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore & Michelle Dockery

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There’s nothing wrong with a cheesy action popcorn fun movie, especially one that stars Liam Neeson. But director Jaume Collett-Serra’s (2011’s Unknown) newest film sells its talent short with a screenplay that features a hideous 9/11 reference and an underdeveloped villain. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) is aboard a non-stop flight to London when […]

‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’ Review: Starring Ty Burrell, Max Charles & Ariel Winter

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“Why can’t children be simple?” asks Mr. Peabody. Leonardo da Vinci responds, “Children are not machines Peabody! I tried to build one, it was creepy.” DreamWorks Animation’s newest film is based off of the short segments titled, “Peabody’s Improbable History” that aired during “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show” in the 1960s. Directed by Rob Minkoff, […]
