Movie Review: Draft Day

Movie Review: Draft Day | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it

Ivan Reitman is one of those filmmakers who I always root for despite knowing better. Sure, anyone whose last few movies include titles like My Super Ex-Girlfriend and No Strings Attached should be approached with a certain amount of fear and trepidation. But at the same time, the guy made Ghostbusters (I repeat, Ghostbusters), so you can never entirely write him off...

Movie Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Movie Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing that Kevin Feige and his Marvel movie team really deserve credit for, it’s refusing to simply repeat their successful formulas. Each movie shot out of the Marvel canon thus far has it’s own weird n’ distinct tone that still fits comfortably within their house style. Their latest production Captain America: The Winter Soldier has all of the tongue-in-cheek humor, spectacular action, and colorful characters that we’ve come to expect from the company, while at the same time feeling like a paranoid political thriller populated with superheroes....

Movie Review: Lone Survivor

Movie Review: Lone Survivor | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
The most interesting thing about Lone Survivor is something that no one making the film clearly thought about or intended. The film is a big, expensive, and star-packed battle cry for the American troops with a distinct smell of propaganda.

Movie Review: Wolf Of Wall Street

Movie Review: Wolf Of Wall Street | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
For those who have lamented the loss the Martin Scorsese they loved as he danced with movie stars and popular genres to Oscar glory in flicks like The Aviator, Hugo, and even The Departed, it’s time to breath a deep sigh of relief.

Movie Review: Nebraska

Movie Review: Nebraska | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Last week we saw a Greek god save the Marvel universe, next week we’ll see impoverished teens fight for their lives in The Hunger Games. This week at the movies is a little smaller and infinitely better.

Movie Review: Dallas Buyers Club

Movie Review: Dallas Buyers Club | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
In theory, Dallas Buyers Club should be an easily dismissible piece of awards bait tripe.

Movie Review: 12 Years A Slave

Movie Review: 12 Years A Slave | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Make no mistake. Despite the (deserved) explosion of critical praise for 12 Years A Slave, it will probably be the most difficult moviegoing experience that you’ll sit through this year. However, in this particular case that’s a good thing.

Movie Review: Captain Phillips

Movie Review: Captain Phillips | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Generally speaking, any movie that could be sold with a tagline like “Tom Hanks Vs. Pirates” should be watched under duress with a mixture of trepidation and contempt.

Movie Review: Gravity

Movie Review: Gravity | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
I’m not big on hyperbole, but every once in a while a movie comes along that deserves it. Gravity is one of those movies. This is the type of film that pull quote buzzwords like “groundbreaking,” “masterpiece,” or “game-changer” were created for.

Movie Review: Rush

Movie Review: Rush | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Long hair, flowing booze, constant danger, fast women, faster cars, 70s Formula 1 racing was a raucous good time vividly evoked in the delightfully entertaining new Ron Howard flick Rush.

Movie Review: Noah

Movie Review: Noah | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it

To attempt to turn the story of Noah’s Ark into a blood-soaked blockbuster is insane. To do it in a way that alters the story to fit the filmmaker’s intent rather than cater to Christian audiences is certifiable. To do it all while spending mucho Hollywood dollaros is downright diabolical. Yet, somehow that’s exactly what director Darren Aronofsky has managed to do with Noah on the back of the unexpected box office success of Black Swan.

Movie Review: Robocop (2014)

Movie Review: Robocop (2014) | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
The Robocop remake is not as bad as everyone feared it would be, but that’s also not quite the same thing as the movie being good. Obviously the remake in no way comes close to matching the wacko, bloodsoaked satirical success of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 masterpiece. However, it’s not as if that little diamond of entertainment has been left untouched since then. There have already been two disappointing Robocop sequels as well as a crappy cartoon and an even worse live action TV series. Robocop’s legacy has already been sullied by projects far worse than this remake. The original Robocop represented a cockeyed satire of America and Hollywood action movies at a time when such a thing was sorely needed. This Robocop attempts to sneak in a little political satire, but ultimately fails and is dogged by a PG-13 rating that neuters the cartoony ultra violence that is as much a key to the Read the Rest...

Movie Review: Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Movie Review: Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
It’s hard to believe we’re now five movies into a franchise based on a locked off camera, a bedroom, and things that go bump in the night. When Oren Peli’s shot-in-my-bedroom indie got a major release from Paramount, it was a big ol’ shock.

Movie Review: Inside Llewyn Davis

Movie Review: Inside Llewyn Davis | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
The Coen Brothers live amongst that special group of filmmakers whose every release is feverishly anticipated by critics and pretty well guaranteed adoration before release.

Movie Review: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Movie Review: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
It’s been a long road from the first Anchorman jokingly dubbing itself The Legend Of Ron Burgundy to a sequel arriving with the subtitle The Legend Continues without a hint of irony.

Movie Review: Thor: The Dark World | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Of all the Marvel heroes comprising The Avengers, Thor was always going to be the trickiest to translate to the screen.

Movie Review: Escape Plan

Movie Review: Escape Plan | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sylvester Stallone. A futuristic prison. An escape. Explosions. Guns. One-liners. 15-20 years ago combining all of these elements would lead to the one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.

Movie Review: Runner Runner | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Runner Runner is the type of star driven blockbuster so stupid that you can’t imagine how anyone involved could possibly have deluded themselves into thinking they’d somehow created something worthwhile.

Movie Review: Insidious: Chapter 2 | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
The last time that James Wan directed two feature films in the same year, they were the two worst projects that he ever made in the embarrassing Dead Silence and the abysmal Death Sentence.

Movie Review: Prisoners | Spotlight Movie Reviews | Scoop.it
Nothing makes you feel older than movies that play as throwbacks to genre that you still consider contemporary.
