Some fables are worth re-telling.  Cinderella is an adult love story masquerading as entertainment for children.

Jupiter Ascending

This movie is dumber than Dumb and Dumber To. At least Jeff Daniels and Jim Carey embraced their stupidity.

Into the Woods

This is a magical film that found some audience members clapping at the end, I didn’t, but I wanted to.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Middle Earth brings the same emotional attachment as The Wizard of Oz. What a pity you can’t wake up in Kansas.

Dracula Untold

If you are wondering why Dracula keeps being interpreted on the silver screen, remember that he only appears in dark movie theaters. I wonder why?

How to Train Your Dragon 2

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a sequel with meaning.


The only thing of note I took from Maleficent is how to pronounce the name. For those interested, it is “mal-EF-uh-sent”.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man has lost his mojo. He would have been better off to vanish into the night like Christian Bale’s Batman.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Though I have never been a President Nixon fan, I didn’t know that he nearly led the world into annihilation.
