Movie Review – The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011) (R)

Watching the original Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I was actively engaged with its dual storylines, but I also found myself pondering which of the two was the more important. Now that David Fincher has made an English-language remake, I find myself pondering what went wrong. Here is a mystery thriller so cold, so distant, and so lacking in energy that it feels neither mysterious nor thrilling.

Movie Review – The Adventures of Tintin (2011) (PG)

Like his Indiana Jones films, Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin is a rip-roaring action adventure that takes many cues from the Saturday matinee serials of yesteryear – equal parts detective story, travelogue, chase film, treasure-hunt fable, buddy comedy, and stunt spectacular. The key difference is that it’s of the junior division.

Movie Review: The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

When Raiders of the Lost Ark premiered in 1981, one of director Steven Spielberg’s favorite critiques was a comparison of his film to Herge’s “The Adventures of Tintin” comic books. Now, thirty years later, Spielberg has brought to the big screen his own adaptation of the esteemed Belgian series in the form of a computer-animated 3D extravaganza. Ironically, we wish it were more like Indiana Jones.

Movie Review – Albert Nobbs (2011) (R)

Albert Nobbs, adapted from George Moore’s short story “The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs,” was clearly intended to explore themes of identity – or, more precisely, how identity is starkly divided between who we are within and what we show to the world. It’s a compelling idea, and yet this movie is missing something. It never quite comes together. It introduces us to a number of interesting characters who are either underdeveloped, underutilized, or in some cases, unconvincing. It tells a story founded on deceptions that are plausible but highly unlikely, making it much harder to invest in.

What Role for Albert Finney in Skyfall?

The James Bond films are eagerly looked forward to around the world and after a four year break owing to a delay caused by the financial problems of MGM the next film, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first James Bond film, is perhaps even more hotly anticipated than usual. At least all the James Bond fans out there know that the film is finally shooting and will be released at the end of 2012.

Movie Review – Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

I have so many feelings about this movie that in order to be coherent, I’m going to have to look at one aspect of the movie at a time. One of the (few) flaws of the first Holmes installment was the mystery and villain. While almost everything else in the movie was spot-on, the actual diabolical plot turned out to be pretty transparent. This installment remedies this.

Movie Review – Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) (G)

Four years ago, I went somewhat easy on Alvin and the Chipmunks, although in retrospect, I probably could have been much harder. Two years ago, I showed no mercy to Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. This year, I’m faced with Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. I didn’t feel the intense dislike I felt for the previous film. Instead, I went through all of its eighty-seven minutes with numb indifference. That’s because this time, I recognized it was made for really young children.
