Movie Review – Greed

Director: Michael Winterbottom Starring: Steve Coogan, David Mitchell, Isla Fisher Year: 2019 Michael Winterbottom likes to work with Steve Coogan, which is great, but unfortunately Greed is more The Look of Love than The Trip franchise, except also much, much worse.  Winterbottom isn’t afraid to experiment, which is great, but sometimes those experiments blow up

Movie Review – History of the World: Part I

Director: Mel Brooks Starring: Mel Brooks, Gregory Hines, Madeline Kahn Year: 1981 We’ve been waiting a long time for Part II, Mel; maybe after the quarantine you can get on it.  I mean, Jews In Space?  Hitler On Ice?  What’s not to be excited about, even after 40 years?  I kid, and it’s just another

Movie Review – A Bridge Too Far

Director: Richard Attenborough Starring: Everyone Year: 1977 Where The Bridge on the River Kwai and The Great Escape succeeded, A Bridge Too Far failed.  Although, those former two are POW movies, where the latter is about active warfare, so perhaps it would be more appropriate to compare it to two more modern features, like Saving
