Hollywood Costume Big Lewbowski

Film Fashion and Movie Posters of Yesteryear Now on Display in L.A.

By Staci Layne Wilson The late great comedienne Gilda Radner famously quipped, “I base most of my fashion sense on what doesn’t itch.” But for the film stars who must be trussed, corseted, stitched and Spandexed in to certain iconic costumes, there’s not much choice when it comes to comfort. It’s quite eye-opening to see…

Big Hero 6 Review

It isn’t often that an animated films ranks as one of my favorites of the year, but Big Hero 6 is just that. And I’ve seen enough of the year’s big releases to believe that Big Hero 6 will stay on my Top Ten list. This smart and sophisticated, yet warm and friendly flick clicks all…

foxcatcher poster

Review: Foxcatcher

In essence, Foxcatcher is an intriguing story poorly told. It’s based on the true, scandalous and tragic tale of how multi-millionaire John du Pont basically bought the U.S. Olympic Wrestling Team and proceeded to ruin the lives of the Gold Medal winning Schultz brothers, with extremely bizarre behavior and murder ensuing. There is doubtless plenty of fascinating…

interstellar Poster

Review: Interstellar

Interstellar had such heavenly potential and aspirations, but unfortunately, for most of its two hours and 49 minutes, it remains uncomfortably grounded. Director/Co-writer Christopher Nolan aimed for the stars and only hit the roof…which isn’t terrible. Nolan’s mediocre creations are better than many filmmakers’ best efforts. In essence, Interstellar is the story of Cooper (Matthew McConaughey),…

ST-VINCENT-POSTER

Review: St. Vincent

By Corisa Nielsen Editor’s Note: From time to time I like to add a fresh voice to this site by asking someone I respect to write a film review. Such is the case with Corisa Nielsen, a fashion lover living in Eastern Washington, who adores spoiling her nieces and nephew. We’re also hometown homies. St. Vincent takes…

MISSIONARY-OFFICIAL-POSTER

Review: Missionary

Many fear that the film Missionary, a “dramatic thriller” about a Mormon Elder run amok with violence and passion, will negate all that great PR The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints received from the film Meet the Mormons. I’m here to reassure them that that’s not gonna happen. Missionary is getting a small…

Fury-2014-Movie-Poster

Review: Fury

Let’s be clear about this right up front: Fury is relentlessly grim and punishing. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a remarkably well-made film. Brad Pitt’s passion project focuses an unblinking and bloodshot eye on the ravages of war during the final weeks of World War II, from the perspective of a five man crew…

birdman poster

Review: Birdman

Birdman, or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, is a very special film. Infinitely creative and unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, you can bet it will be a major contender for Oscars and other awards. It’s certainly among my favorites of the year so far, thanks to its brazen freshness, and spectacular performances. It’s the…

God's_Not_Dead Poster

Review: God's Not Dead

By Cindy Crompton Editor’s Note: We critics are a jaded lot, and it’s just impossible for us to see everything, so from time to time I invite guest critics in to give fresh perspective on films that I think are significant, like God’s Not Dead. Today’s guest critic is Cindy (MacIntosh) Crompton, mom of three,…

stonehearst-asylum poster

Review: Stonehearst Asylum

Okay, if you’re only going to see one scary movie this year, or if you just feel like a good chilling fright around Halloween, I recommend that you chose Stonehearst Asylum, a gaudy, gory, gothic horror of a film with an all star cast including Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Brendan Gleason and…
