Mr Holmes

February 5, 2016By ChrisMovies No Comments

Quiet. If I had to do a 1 word review that would be it. Quiet. 2 words? Quietly brilliant. 3 words? Not your average Holmes adventure movie. Wait that’s not 3 words. How about: it’s an art film. Damn that’s 4. Sherlock is 93 years old and is reflecting on his last case with the … Read More

The Stars Look Very Different…Today

January 11, 2016By ChrisMovies 9 Comments

5 songs. Usually you can describe an artist, a band, in 5 songs. Hell, sometimes it takes just one. 5 songs is enough to cover different phases. Different eras. 5 songs isn’t enough to even begin to describe David Bowie. PS: if I may take a few moments to bask in the joy (is that … Read More

Mother’s Day is around the corner (it’s Sunday the 13th, don’t forget), which makes this a good time to look at some of movie’s best mothers.

Please. Please. Please don’t let “reading” a movie stop you from seeing this film. Also don’t let the fact that Weinstein is already planning a Hollywood remake (with Colin Firth) stop you from see this film. If I may borrow from a follower on Twitter who also saw the movie.

13 Assassins

January 6, 2012By ChrisMovies No Comments

I think everyone goes through a samurai phase. Or maybe it’s just me. Or people that grew up in the 70s. I had read good reviews about 13 Assassins so I asked Netflix to mail me a DVD and they did. Yes they still do that and yes I still get my DVDs in the … Read More

Five Reasons To See ‘Take Shelter’

October 28, 2011By AdrienneMovies 4 Comments

  There’s a good chance you haven’t heard of Take Shelter, a new psychological horror film by director Jeff Nichols. It didn’t get a wide release and it’s more of an “indie” movie: no A-list stars, no big budget, no easy film to watch. Which is a shame, since this is one fantastic movie. Here … Read More
