‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II’ Review: Fans Will Flip Out

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II” is a perfect example of how an anti-climatic ending in the book can be tweaked and changed for the better in the “movie world.” “Part II” picks right up where we left off in “Part I.” Bella (Kristen Stewart) wakes up after giving birth to her daughter Renesmee […]

‘Life of Pi’ Review: A Visionary Masterpiece

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There are several 3D films that have come out this year, where the 3D doesn’t necessarily add anything to the story. For example, “Wreck-It Ralph” is one of the most original animated films we’ve seen in years and offers some of the year’s best voice performances, but the 3D doesn’t do anything for the film. […]

‘Hitchcock’ Review: One of the Year’s Best

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“Hitchcock” is an astonishing portrait of one great filmmaker and his secret weapon behind his legendary films: his wife, Alma Reville. Director Sacha Gervasi’s “Hitchcock” is a beautiful and genuine biopic of one of the most famous filmmakers of all time. The film frames the few months of Hitchcock’s (Anthony Hopkins) life while he was […]

‘Playing for Keeps’ Review: Hollywood Needs More Ideas in Rom-Com Genre

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There are several different types of romantic comedies. There are the films that make their mark in romantic American cinema, like the classics “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle”; there are the fun, memorable ones that my generation grew up with, like “She’s All That” and “10 Things I Hate About You”; and […]

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Review: 3D 48 FPS Looks Glorious!

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Note: There are 6 different ways you can see “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and the way I recommend seeing it is in 3D 48 frames per second (HFR or high frame rate). The film was NOT shot in IMAX, but the benefit of seeing it in IMAX is for the 9 minute long prologue […]

‘This is 40’ Review: So Disappointing

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Judd Apatow had dropped the ball again this year. “The Five-Year Engagement” (which he produced) was one of the worst romantic comedies I’ve ever seen and “This is 40” is probably the most disappointing sequel, “sorta-sequels” or whatever else Apatow wants to qualify it as, that I’ve ever seen.   Apatow is calling “This is […]

‘Rust & Bone’ Review: Gritty French Drama with Great Performances

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

If you aren’t a fan of Katy Perry’s song “Firework,” you most likely will be after watching “Rust and Bone.” The song is given a whole new meaning paired with Marion Cotillard’s character, a woman struggling with the will to live again. Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts) is a single father who leaves the north of France […]
