Hell Or High Water

BBBB (out of 5) Two brothers rob a series of banks in quick succession, taking small bills from the front desks of small, poorly guarded branches in dusty Texan towns to avoid stealing traceable money and pulling off their heists with very few problems (at least at first).  They spark the interest of a sheriff about…

Into The Woods

BBB (out of 5) The ever-popular Tony Award-winning Broadway musical has finally made its way to the big screen via the purveyor of the modern movie singalong, Rob Marshall.  It keeps the plotting essentially the same to the original show, with a comprehensive collection of classic fairy tales thrown into a jumble surrounding the needs…

Horrible Bosses 2

BB.5 (out of 5) They caused so much hilarious mayhem the first time around, and the box office receipts came in so nice and high that there was absolutely no way they would avoid doing it again.  The misfit trio of Charlie Day, Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis have left their terrible leaders in the dust at…

Star Trek Into Darkness

BBBB.5 (out of 5) The first adventure solidified the new generation of the U.S.S. Enterprise, preparing us for a fresh gang ready to boldly go where no man (or woman) has gone before; with all the establishing now out of the way, it’s time to get them into some serious trouble.  This they do right…

Star Trek

BBBB (out of 5) It should come as no surprise that the latest in the Star Trek series would aim at the youth market.  Hollywood loves teenagers’ disposable income, so wunderkind J.J. Abrams, the man who brought Alias and Lost to television and let Tom Cruise still think he was a cocky twenty year-old by…
