‘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, […]

‘Shame’ Review: Fassbender and Mulligan are Excellent, But…

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“Shame” is a depressing portrait of a suffering Manhattan sex addict, played by Michael Fassbender, whose life is interrupted by the indefinite stay of his younger sister, Carey Mulligan. If it weren’t for the performances of these two stellar actors, I probably would’ve hated this movie. It’s their performances that truly carry the film until […]

‘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 […]

’12 Years a Slave’ Review: Honest, Courageous & Wonderfully Acted

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“I don’t want to survive. I want to live.” –Solomon Northup Director Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave is this year’s unforgettable instant classic. Based on the book of the same name, 12 Years a Slave takes place in the 1800s and tells the story of Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free man who was […]

‘The Counselor’ Review: Fassbender is Excellent, But Film Lacks Thrills

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The Counselor is an interesting movie because it’s unlike anything director Ridley Scott (2012’s Prometheus) has ever done. But on the other hand, The Counselor is not an outstanding movie, because Cormac McCarthy’s (2007’s No Country for Old Men) screenplay allows for no character development and comes off as pretentious, confusing and at times boring. […]

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Review: Starring Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender & Jennifer Lawrence

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

If you are a Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence or Hugh Jackman fan, a Marvel comic book fanatic or just someone who loves superhero movies in general, you will love X-Men Days of Future Past. If you adored 2000’s X-Men and 2003’s X-Men 2 and couldn’t take all of the craziness in 2006’s X-Men: The Last […]
