I was never a big fan of Rex Harrison’s British musical version, and Eddie Murphy’s contemporary American take on “Dr. Doolittle” was funny and cute in its own way, but at least both stars maintained a certain presence on screen. more
The light in Taos is exceptional and something for which it is noted, but its glow sometimes emanates from something other than the sun. There are people who bring their own shining intensity to this small town and make it a brighter place for family, friends and the wider community. Such a person was the actor Robert Walker Jr., who died in Malibu, California, on Dec. 5, 2019. more
War itself has always been brutal, but the Industrial Revolution helped create a horrifying meat grinder during this "war to end all wars." The machines created to destroy human bodies during the first World War (1914-1918) were made even more effective because medics had no way to cope with the volume much less the severity of destruction. But, still, men, and boys, marched off to fight, starched with visions of glory. more
What would you think if the Son of God reappeared in our midst? Today? In the Middle East? Would we even recognize Him, understand His message, or would we dismiss Him as just another cult leader or charlatan? more
You have to give a lot of credit to director Greta Gerwig. Not only did she helm one of the best cinema adaptations (among many) of Louisa May Alcott’s 19th century semi-autobiographical novel, she was also pregnant while shooting it and went into labor the day after she turned in her first rough cut of the movie. more
Just what is the "Star Wars" universe trying to teach us? Is it that Wookiees are incredibly loyal, fierce and loveable friends? Or, that brave freedom fighters will always give their lives for a just cause? Or, that evil will never die and that a gigantic armada of Imperial Star Destroyers can be built in secret by a cranky old relative? more
The idea behind "Jumanji" was always a brilliant conceit: A game that literally drags players into it, posing various life-threatening and crazy challenges until they are forced to hit certain goals and the final moves are achieved. more
Clearly, director Kasi Lemmons had a monumental weight thrust upon her shoulders to depict the life and times of American hero Harriet Tubman (1822-1913). In every scene, one feels the director's intense desire to "get it right" because the world would certainly judge every frame and utterance for their authenticity and faithfulness to this important, yet largely unknown, historical figure. more
This one might seem like a low budget production as it opens, but there are no credits so you don’t know who’s in it at first or even what it’s called. This is a clever way of ... more
Lightning rarely strikes twice in animated movies, and now with the “Disney Princess Movie” imprint to uphold, the motive to electrify audiences for the new “Frozen II” movie is even more imperative ... more
The new car racing film "Ford v Ferrari" by James Mangold is a well-designed bit of semi-macho fluff based upon a real life rivalry ... more
They killed a kid — not just haul him off-screen to so something unseen and unspeakable. No, they showed his terror, and the blood, and the torture. more
While we may not have been “psychedelized” as the Chambers Brothers suggested, the past can be tricky and so can the future. That’s why remembering ... more
The Living Rio Campaign is hosting a new Patagonia feature film screening of “Artifishal.” It is described as a film “about people, rivers and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms and our continued loss of faith in nature.” more
When Taos filmmaker Andrea Heckman began the journey of making her third documentary in a series about the ancient teachings of the Bon tradition from Tibet, she thought the filming would begin and end in the Himalayas. What a Bon leader suggested for locations was a surprise steeped in wisdom and the recognition that the teachings of Bon extend all over the globe. more
Because part of "Zombieland: Double Tap" involves a pilgrimage to Graceland, I thought it might be fun to rattle off a bunch of Elvis-related non sequiturs ... more
Will Smith actually plays his age, 51, in director Ang Lee’s action thriller “Gemini Man,” but given the level of CGI and stunt double agility exhibited by his character, you’re probably supposed to think, “Dang, he looks pretty good for an old guy.” more
There has not been in recent memory an actor who has so thoroughly projected such a gut-wrenching mixture of despair, confusion, terror, and, yes, insanity, within the first moments of appearing on … more
Julian Fellowes has created quite a little industry cataloguing the manners and accoutrement of British aristocracy circa 1920s via his popular television show, “Downton Abbey.” more
In the new movie directed by Gary Gray, “Ad Astra” (“to the stars” in Latin), Brad Pitt stars as Roy McBride, a straight-ahead astronaut borne of “The Right Stuff” era when test pilots were chosen for their nerves of steel ... more
It isn’t often that a modern film features a 13-year-old boy choosing refinement over the stereotypical horndog antics of ... more
Horror author Stephen King knows what scares us because he knows what hurts. It's the key to his success. He makes horror a personal experience ... more
As part of the annual weeklong Albuquerque Film & Music Experience, the 50th anniversary of "Easy Rider" will be celebrated with a film event at the historic KiMo Theatre Sept. 27 … more
A memorable moment of the 2012 documentary film "Trash Dance" is the scene of a large crane, the kind you see in big city dumps, performing a "dance" whirling around in place with … more
I hate movies about dogs. Not because I think they’re intrinsically all bad. I just know dogs and for all the love and attention we give them, fate more
