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!

Unstoppable

Unstoppable

Mostly an on-the-surface action flick, helmed by Tony Scott, and filled with the requisite shaky cameras and quick cuts. The simplistic script doesn’t promise much, and so doesn’t fail. Denzel Washington and Chris Pine are top notch, though, elevating the film through chemistry and star power. Decent, if you don’t expect more than the trailers advertise.
