TAMMY Movie Review

TAMMY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I want more Tammy. I want the franchise, the book, the FX series and the musical. The most common female size in America is size 14. According to an article posted on Women’s Wear Daily online on January 24, 2011, “Since 2005, the average dress size in […]

JERSEY BOYS Movie Review

JERSEY BOYS Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A sloppy, lazy, energy-free back lot production. Everything is wrong except the music. The dreadful “dee’s,” “dem’s” and “does” are as shameful as the clumsy acting. Eastwood proves he has limitations. The screening here in Las Vegas was a big affair, with the current cast from “Jersey Boys”, […]

THE ROVER Movie Review

THE ROVER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Pattinson transcends his career-strangling straightjacket with a dynamic performance – don’t go back now! Does Guy Pearce ever make a wrong step in picking films? We know what happens when a few New Yorkers in movies like I AM LEGEND survive the apocalypse – they raid the […]

EDGE OF TOMORROW Movie Review

EDGE OF TOMORROW Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Terrific. Cruise oozes charisma and has real chemistry with Blunt. The thing about megastar Tom Cruise is that you know he gets “first look” at every screenplay. If he wants to do an action sci-fi adventure, his agents see everything offered. Audiences expect the best from him […]

MALEFICENT Movie Review

MALEFICENT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer “The awful thing about life is this: Everybody has their reasons.” Maleficent has a very good reason. Sensational Jolie creates the character’s evolving emotions purely with her face. It’s your task to make the villainous characters of The Brothers Grimm fairytales – the Big Bad Wolf in […]

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST Movie Review

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander , Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Wait for TED 2. When Seth MacFarlane hosted the 2013 Academy Awards I wondered – how much did he buy that gig for? Is the MacFarlane brand big enough to host and sing-and-dance on the global behemoth that has an audience of potentially two billion? How many […]

NYMPHOMANIAC VOLUME I Movie Review

NYMPHOMANIAC VOLUME I Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I’m strongly biased. I’m a huge fan of provocative filmmaker Lars von Trier ever since BREAKING THE WAVES (1996). Like the most recent intense verbal war between stars Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos and director Abdellatif Kechiche the director of their Palme d’Or winning film, BLUE IS […]

PBS FRONTLINE: Secrets of the Vatican Review

PBS FRONTLINE: Secrets of the Vatican Review

By Victoria Alexander Las Vegas Informer Pope Francis, the 266th pope of the Catholic Church, made a startling statement regarding the Roman Curia, the Church’s all-powerful civil service. He said: “The court is the leprosy of the papacy.” He has described the Curia as “narcissistic” and “self-referential.” This FRONTLINE program explores the church he is […]

“Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” Movie Review

“Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A boring, editing mess with an absurd jump cut in the action not worthy of a major hoped-for franchise. You will know the sloppy editing when you see it. You will say, “What happened?” One minute Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) is waist-deep in water, hand-to-hand fighting with […]

Why I Contribute to the Las Vegas Informer

Why I Contribute to the Las Vegas Informer

By Victoria Alexander Las Vegas Informer Why I contribute to Las Vegas Informer: Because of Joe Buda. Not only can I count on Joe to put up my film reviews any time – day or night – I send him my review. He reads them and places the pictures I send him in the review. […]
