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!

Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde

While Reese Witherspoon and her costars (particularly Victor Garber and Jennifer Coolidge) are fine, the direction is incredibly flat and the editing worse, enervating the entire production. The film misses any sense of lightness, and the music does not match the scenes. Not recommended.
