Review: Arrival starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker

By Sandra Kraisirideja When is a sci-fi movie not a sci-fi movie? When it’s directed by Denis Villeneuve. Villeneuve (Prisoners and Sicario) is an expert at creating tension and dread in his movies. There is certainly a lot of ominous overtones in Arrival, which begins on the day several alien aircraft arrive on earth. There is a lot I liked Continue Reading...

By Sandra Kraisirideja The Magnificent Seven hits all the standard marks for a well-done Western. If there is any flaw it would be that director Antoine Fuqua plays it incredibly safe and there isn’t anything about the movie that made me think it was an “Antoine Fuqua” picture. Of course this is the kind of criticism that only critics make. Continue Reading...

Review: The Secret Life of Pets

by Sandra Kraisirideja “The Secret Life of Pets” is a disappointing movie that relies too heavily on physical humor and poorly written jokes. Young children may laugh, but adults will be bored out of their minds. It’s a shame too because the trailer looked promising as it showed a variety of activities pets get into when their owners are gone. Continue Reading...
