"INDIANA JONES AND THE RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK" (1981) Review

I suspect that many would be astounded to read the following - I did not want to see "INDIANA JONES AND THE RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK" when it first hit the theaters back in 1981. I simply did not. And there were a few reasons why I felt this way. Read more... )

"LINCOLN" (1974-76) Review

During the first half of the Twentieth Century, poet and historian Carl Sandburg wrote a six-volume biography on the life of the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Years passed before David Wolper ("ROOTS", "THE THORN BIRDS", and the "NORTH AND SOUTH" TRILOGY) produced a six-part miniseries on Lincoln's life and career, based upon Sandburg's work.

"THE FIRM" (1993) Review

To this day, I am surprised that film critics and historians have not looked back on the 1990s as the "Age of Grisham". I am referring to attorney-novelist, John Grisham, who wrote many bestsellers - especially his legal thrillers that were released between 1989 and 2000. In fact, the decade also saw several adaptations of Grisham's bestsellers - including 1993's "THE FIRM". Read more... )

"BRIDGE OF SPIES" (2015) Review

Several years ago, I read an article in which Steven Spielberg had expressed a desire to direct a James Bond movie. It has been over a decade since the director had made this comment. And as far as I know, he has only directed two movies that had anything to do with spies - the 2005 movie "MUNICH", which co-starred the current Bond actor, and his latest film, "BRIDGE OF SPIES".

DISAPPOINTING HOLLYWOOD SUMMER

The movie season for the summer of 2015 has been very disappointing for me. In different ways, it has been more disappointing than the summer of 2014. This disappointment stems from an observation that some of my favorite films during this summer have either bombed at the box office or have barely made a profit. Read more... )

"JURASSIC WORLD" (2015) Review

Being a Southern California resident and native, I have made numerous visits to the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park. And for the past decade, a guide for the Backlot Tour attraction has announced to visitors about the studio's intention to produce and release a fourth film for the JURASSIC PARK movie franchise. After five years, I stopped taking these announcements seriously. Read more... )

"INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL" (2008) Review

As much as I enjoyed the last installment of the INDIANA JONES saga - 2008's "KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL", I had found myself perplexed by it. There was something about its tone that did not strike a similar chord, in compare to the other three movies. It took a second viewing of the movie for me to understand not only the movie’s story, but its entire atmosphere. And it had a lot to do with its setting. Read more... )
