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!

Whiteout

A perfect storm of a film, where bad acting, bad writing, and bad directing come together to produce a surpassingly bad work. It’s actually difficult to fault the actors for what they’re given to say and do, and it’s a coin toss as to whether the dreadful dialogue or nonsensical action is worse. An absolute misfire, with no redeeming features beyond some beautiful Antarctic shots.
