‘This Is Where I Leave You’ Review: Starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey & Adam Driver

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

This Is Where I Leave You is so over the top and out of this world wild with almost no redeemable characters to ground the story. What could have been a realistic storytelling of a dysfunctional family turns into a game of “How much more can we shock the audience?” Having not read Jonathan Tropper’s […]

‘The Maze Runner’ Review: Starring Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter & Aml Ameen

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

As a film critic, there is nothing that I love more than to read a novel in anticipation for the movie adaptation. The Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent and even the Twilight franchises were just as good if sometimes only better than the actual novel the film was based on. I always like to try […]

‘The Drop’ Review: Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace & James Gandolfini

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The Drop compiles exceptional talent with Tom Hardy (2014’s Locke), Noomi Rapace (2013’s Dead Man Down), James Gandolfini (2013’s Enough Said) and Ann Dowd (2014’s Gimme Shelter) all on board, making it one of the best casts of the year. As James Gandolfini’s final movie, the late actor gets to explore a layered and unpredictable […]

Gayle Forman’s popular Young Adult novel “If I Stay” is a captivating story about the beauty of life, death and love, and focuses on 16-year-old Mia who experiences it all after a tragic accident happens to her family. There is not a better and more poised young actress than Chloe Grace Moretz (2013’s Carrie and […]

‘The Giver’ Review: Starring Brenton Thwaites, Jeff Bridges & Meryl Streep

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Films based on novels about a dystopian future have become wildly popular in the last few years. Starting in 2012, Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games hit the big screen with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson starring and the sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire following last year. Earlier this year, Veronica Roth’s Divergent found new […]

‘Into the Storm’ Review: Starring Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies & Matt Walsh

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There are two things you can count on if you go to see Into the Storm. One is that the special effects are pretty wild and incredible; and two, it is not Twister, even though it desperately tries to mimic qualities of the original tornado film. If you go into the theatre knowing these two […]

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Review: Starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett & Johnny Knoxville

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Director Jonathan Liebesman (2011’s Battle: Los Angeles) and producer Michael Bay’s (2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction) reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise is nostalgic, an adrenaline rush and pure fun. Though it may not be the best reboot in the world, it’s certainly worth seeing if you’re a fan of the comic books, […]
