‘Paddington’ Review: Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins & Nicole Kidman

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There’s not a single soul who grew up with Paddington Bear that didn’t love him. And if you didn’t grow up with the lovable bear, after you watch this film, you’ll be sure to fall in love with the Peruvian bear just like I did. Director Paul King reignites the story of Paddington Bear in […]

‘Predestination’ Review: Starring Ethan Hawke, Sarah Snook & Noah Taylor

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Led by a powerful Ethan Hawke and a remarkable breakout performance by Sarah Snook, Predestination might be the most interesting movie about time travel in recent years. Written and directed by The Spierig Brothers (2009’s Daybreakers, which I really enjoyed in theaters), Predestination tells the story of a man (Ethan Hawke), who is a part-time […]

‘Sicario’ Review: Starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro & Josh Brolin

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Denis Villeneuve is becoming one of the best directors working today and one of my personal favorites. With last year’s Enemy, a memorizing doppelgänger story led by an excellent performance by Jake Gyllenhaal and 2013’s Prisoners, a story about a man played by Hugh Jackman who would do anything to get his daughter back and […]

‘Side Effects’ Review: Soderbergh’s Style Meets Mara’s Talents

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Side Effects starts off as an original and daring film, but takes a turn for the Lifetime channel ¾ of the way in and ends up being not nearly as good as it could have been. Martin (Channing Tatum) has just been released from prison after being locked away for four years because of insider […]

‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ Review: Don’t Waste Your Time

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“Silent Hill: Revelation 3D” is one of the worst movies of the year. The story, dialogue and acting is bad. Why Sean Bean (“Game of Thrones”) or Malcolm McDowell (“A Clockwork Orange”) would want to be involved in this disastrous “horror” film is beyond me. “Silent Hill: Revelation” is the sequel to 2006’s “Silent Hill,” […]

‘Skyfall’ Review: One of the Best Bonds Ever!

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

As “Skyfall” opens in theatres, we are reminded of the 50th anniversary of James Bond in film, the longest continually running film series. “Skyfall” opens with James Bond (Daniel Craig) chasing a bad guy (Ola Rapace, Noomi’s brother), who has an important disc that contains every MI6 agents’ identity on it. Naturally, Bond is trying […]

‘Sleepwalk With Me’ Review: Comedian Makes Funny Indie

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Matt (Mike Birbiglia) tells us right from the start that this is a “true story” and no matter how many times you may think it’s fake, it’s definitely not. Matt and his girlfriend Abby (Lauren Ambrose) have been together for eight years and have just now made the decision to move in together. Matt is […]
