’21 & OVER’ Review: Forced Comedy Doesn’t Measure Up to HANGOVER

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The first thing readers are going to say when they read my headline is “Lauren, you can’t expect every drinking comedy to be as funny as The Hangover!” But I’m comparing 21 & Over to The Hangover because both films have the same writers and one script is tremendously better than the other. Here’s a […]

Noomi Rapace reunites with Niels Arden Oplev, who directed her in the 2009 Swedish film, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

We’re only in March of 2013, but this year has already seen many less than average action films. A Good Day to Die Hard, Bullet to the Head and Dean Man Down were all letdowns, so I was completely thankful when I walked out of the theatre of Antoine Fuqua’s newest film, Olympus Has Fallen […]

‘Admission’ Review: Nothing Romantic About This Comedy

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Any film that makes the lovely and talented Tina Fey look like an idiot has got to be garbage. Admission is a weird and messily directed film with a terrible screenplay. In the trailers, Admission is marketed as a romantic comedy focusing on a woman who is struggling to find happiness and one who is […]
