Anna Karenina

“Anna Karenina” Adaptation is Needless

Joe Wright’s 2005 adaptation of “Pride and Prejudice” is one of my favorite movies of all time, and not just because “Pride and Prejudice” is one of my favorite books of all time. The collaboration between director Joe Wright, cinematographer Roman Osin and leads Keira Knightley (Elizabeth Bennett) and Matthew Macfadyen (Mr. Darcy) revitalized this […]

BRADLEY COOPER stars in SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK

Silver Linings Playbook: Drama or Dark Comedy?

As some of you may know, the Oscar race has officially begun. While we’re still months away from countless best and worst dressed lists, teary-eyed acceptance speeches, and bragging rights for the studio behind the year’s most lauded film, “Silver Linings Playbook” is already a frontrunner. Produced by the Weinstein Company, “SLP” stars Bradley Cooper, […]

Lincoln

All Hail ‘Lincoln’

Even with the Presidential election now over, our nation is still in a flux.  And while the Republican and Democratic parties promise bipartisanship, my pessimism towards the government remains unchanged.  If only all politicians could possess the same moxie as Abraham Lincoln. Of course, my opinion of Lincoln stems only from textbooks. In “Lincoln,” director […]

A-Late-Quartet

Music Is Their Religion in A Late Quartet

Age is a funny thing. When you’re young, you’re constantly anticipating the future, fantasizing about what is to come, both personally and professionally. For us, the future is out of reach. We can envision ourselves rising to our full potential, but we don’t yet possess the experience needed to get us there. On the other […]

Skyfall

Skyfall Review

Espionage and secret agents have always interested me. Unlike boring ol’ me, secret agents get to travel the world, play with high tech gadgets and kick butt. Over the years, I’ve seen countless spy thrillers, but I have never watched any of the old James Bond movies, not even the ones starring Sean Connery. My […]

James Cameron

How James Cameron Broke My Heart

James Cameron is a talented filmmaker, but I can’t help but roll my eyes every time I hear him speak. Perhaps it is because there’s a fine line between arrogance and confidence, and he knowingly crosses it whenever he is given an award, asked a question or simply has the opportunity to speak. Though, I’d […]

Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths Review

Martin McDonagh’s first feature length film “In Bruges” was great. It possessed enough crass humor and sentimentality to make the film lovable. While his second film, “Seven Psychopaths,” has the kind of offensive sense of humor, it lacks a true soft side. Marty (Colin Farrell) is an alcoholic screenwriter struggling to pen his next script, […]

Taken 2: A Family Affair

Taken 2 may be one of the worst sequels I’ve seen in a long time, which is disappointing considering how great the first Taken was. The problem with Taken 2 is that it’s essentially the same movie, except this time it’s a family affair. The thrill is gone, and the audience is left with a […]

Chili Cookoff

The Day I Judged a Chili Cook-Off

A couple weeks ago I took part in judging the 33rd annual Miller Lite Chili Cook-Off. As a chili enthusiast, I was excited to taste what I assumedwould be some of the best chili in the North Georgia. Sadly, it was not. While the chili could be considered average, the same can’t be said for […]

Joseph Gordon Levitt

Looper Review

Like so many other twenty-something women, I’ve had a crush on Joseph Gordon-Levitt since his role as Cameron in “10 Ten Things I Hate About You.” Over the years, Gordon-Levitt has proven his versatility, from the lovelorn lead in “(500) Days of Summer” to his role in Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending “Inception.” In “Looper,” Gordon-Levitt continues […]
