For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

Galaxy Quest

Galaxy Quest

This send-up of Star Trek and its aficionados contains plenty of laughs, faithfully riffing on the original television series. Though fans are initially depicted as complete misfits, they are in the end treated with a measure of respect and appreciation. The solid cast includes particularly fine performances by Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell, though Enrico Colantoni’s alien leader outshines them all. Filled with humor, heart, and even a couple of surprises, this film is well worth a look, especially if you know anything about Star Trek.
