Movie Review – War Horse (2011) (PG-13)

War Horse must have been a tremendous challenge for director Steven Spielberg, as the film is a balancing act between two of his well-established styles, namely overt sentimentalism and horrific depictions of war. On paper, this sounds like a recipe for disaster. On screen, it comes across beautifully. Don’t ask me how he made it work, because I have absolutely no idea. All I know is, like Spielberg’s own E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, this is one of those rare films that can positively and without a hint of facetiousness be described using cliched terms such as “crowd pleaser” and “tearjerker.”

Movie Review – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011) (PG-13)

Stephen Daldry’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close represents the best type of sentimentalism there is, in which the aim is not to make you cry but to actually tell a story that will resonate emotionally. It’s not a fairy tale, a fable, or a parable; it’s simply a film that works more on the heart than it does the brain. I don’t always appreciate narrative contrivances, but in this case, I have to admire Daldry and screenwriter Eric Roth – and, of course, Jonathan Safran Foer, who wrote the novel on which the film is based – for their willingness to be so bold and uncompromising in their vision.

Movie Review – We Bought a Zoo (2011) (PG)

In August of 2006, the Mee family of Devon, England – consisting of DIY columnist and animal lover Benjamin, his brother Duncan, his mother Amelia, and his two children – invested £1.1 million of their own money into the Dartmoor Wildlife Park, a local landmark which opened in 1968 and was forced to close thirty-eight years later after falling on hard times. The eleven-month renovation, which required not only an additional £500,000 but also the family moving into a house on the property, resulted in upgraded pathways, more secure and hospitable animal enclosures, up-to-code restaurants and shops, and the new name of Dartmoor Zoological Park.

Movie Review: We Bought a Zoo (2011)

We Bought a Zoo is too lighthearted and silly for its own good, gaily adapted from a memoir about the real life Benjamin Mee and his purchase and renovation of a dilapidated zoo. Death, grief and recovery make their way into the screenplay, but in sadly small doses. Due to Cameron Crowe’s name being behind the writing and directing, there was some initial Oscar buzz, but the only time the film is even slightly awards-worthy palatable is when characters argue.

TV Aerials in the Midst of Digital Technology

Movie Review – Tron: Legacy

Tron: Legacy, there hasn’t been such an appropriate title to a sequel in a long time. This movie attempts to rewrite the story of Tron changing it from a cult classic to an epic SciFi adventure (it even has some tongue in cheek Star Wars references). Some flaws though can’t be rewritten and doom the movie to the same status as the original.
