A Most Wanted Man — MOVIE REVIEW


Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams in A Most Wanted Man

In the last performance of his career, Philip Seymour Hoffman gives us a damn fine one. That is for sure. This role wasn’t an easy one to take on. John le Carré always gives us these rich and difficult characters to latch onto in his novels. Just look at The Constant Gardner and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. They all had these big actors playing the main character, but it was never flashy or showy. They have to sink into these roles in order for the true character to be present.

But if one thing is for certain, it doesn’t take much to make or break a superhero movie. Whether it be villains, the narrative, or something else entirely; anything can affect it.

So let’s rank these Spider-Man movies.

The Grand Budapest Hotel — MOVIE REVIEW


Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes, and Tony Revolori in The Grand Budapest Hotel

“Get your hands off my lobby boy!”  That is just one of numerous lines that are so memorable from The Grand Budapest Hotel. Wes Anderson’s new movie gives us a look inside the life of a hotel concierge and his lobby boy. And it is fantastic. Not a moment goes by where you are not just appreciating what is on screen. You will laugh and chuckle and smile all the way through this one. Wes Anderson really is an acquired taste. You either love him or you hate him. Whether you are a fan of his previous body of work or not, you can not disregard the man’s attention to detail. How did his new movie match up to his previous films?
