Film Review: Ad Astra will prove to be one man’s wonder to another’s waste

September 19, 2019

The effects are seamless.  The acting is introspective.  The emotional undercurrent aims for supremacy.

Film Review: Allied (USA/UK, 2016) is strengthened by a tour de force performance from Marion Cotillard

December 21, 2016

Robert Zemeckis is a film-maker that has both enthralled and frustrated me.
