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!

Pride and Glory

Pride and Glory

Edward Norton and Noah Emmerich are particularly good in this smart police drama. Though the script contains nothing terribly inventive, it does possess some intense, worthwhile moments. While the audience never really identifies with the characters, the story moves along well and keeps viewers interested.
