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?

X-Men: Days of Future Past: The Past is the Future

By Sean Molloy Make no mistake by the previews or the buildup for Bryan Singer’s triumphant return to the X-Men franchise; Days of Future Past is a great, GREAT comic book movie. The film pays homage to the past and the present state of the franchise while seemingly to reset its own universe for the […]

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

By Sean Molloy Godzilla, the name itself brings up one of two things; a sense of nostalgia for the old, hokey Japanese films of the 1950s and ‘60s, or the disappointment and disgust that the reboot brought about in the ‘90s.

“Neighbors”: Not for the Casual Comedy Viewer

By Sean Molloy There is no question that “Neighbors” is going to make serious money at the box office in the coming weeks.

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 […]

Classical-rock hybridists Ginger Ibex to stream live concert from Boston’s WMFO 91.5 FM

By Keith Johnson San Francisco Informer “Keith Jarrett, Astor Piazzolla and Sergei Rachmaninov walk into a bar.” It sounds like the start of a nerdy music school joke but an ensuing jam session between the jazz, tango and classical music icons might give you an idea of Ginger Ibex’s sound.

Non-Stop: Avoid This Trip

Non-Stop: Avoid This Trip

By Sean Molloy Remember when Liam Neeson was more interested in actual acting rather than playing these action centric characters? No? Me either. Non-Stop is another feather in the cap kind of action movie that has Neeson playing air marshal Bill Marks in a who done it on an airplane. However, the issue is Marks […]
