Review: ‘Sicario’ Is One of the Most Intense Movies of the Year

‘Sicario’ is an exercise in prolonged tension like few others. Every moment from the first scene to the last is suspenseful. The opening, a deadly raid on a drug kingpin’s safe house establishes a terrifying precedent: In this film, violence can erupt at any time without any warning, and no one and nothing can be trusted. Having thoroughly unsettled the audience, director Denis Villeneuve keeps viewers on edge with shifty characters, sudden bursts of gunfire, and the careful use of a persistent, pounding score. Remember the scene in Boogie Nights where Alfred Molina is randomly tossing firecrackers at Mark Wahlberg and John C. Reilly? Sicario is like that scene for two straight hours with no “Sister Christian.” It is intense.

‘Demolition’ Review: A Strong Jake Gyllenhaal Performance in a Weak Movie

Naomi Watts’ is the second-billed star in Jean-Marc Vallée’s Demolition. On the film’s official Fox Searchlight website, her name appears above the title next to Jake Gyllenhaal’s. But she barely appears in the film’s trailer. She’s onscreen for less than one second. She says just three words. (“You miss her?”) It’s almost like the trailer is trying to hide her.

The Rob Reviews Trainwreck

This weekend I got a chance to catch up and see some movies that are still out in theaters.  First up is a comedy I've been wanting to see since I first saw the trailer, Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck".  I love Amy's style of comedy, whether it's on her stand up, or her Comedy Central sitcom Inside Amy Schumer. Does her comedy lend well to the big screen?

The Rob Reviews Citizens of Earth

As you know, I have a deep and true appreciation for the electronic arts...  Video games!  While on vacation somewhat recently, I spent a lot of time playing "Citizens of Earth" from Atlus.  Atlus has a surprisingly good track record with me, namely as the company behind the amazingly brilliant "Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch".  Did they hit another home run with "Citizens of Earth"?  Find out inside my latest video game video review below!

The Rob Reviews Ted 2

Yesterday, I went back to the movies and got a chance to see Ted 2.  I thought the first Ted movie from 2012 was a pretty solid comedy, and I've been excited to see its sequel.  The movie did a lot of things well and a lot of things wrong in my opinion, and you can find those things out in my latest movie review below!
