PENEFLIX ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS CONTEST 2019, ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT!!!

Once again February has shed prominence on the stars, movies and those behind the scenes. This year is the most difficult, challenging to date, due to the range and diversity of the films and nominees. I feel there should be separate categories for drama and comedy. I also question “Roma” being in “Best Movie” and best “Foreign Film” categories. Every ... Read More »

COLD PURSUIT

Norwegian film director, Hans Petter Moland recreates his successful 2014 “In Order of Disappearance”, starring Stellan Skarsgard (“Nils”) with an American version; Liam Neeson (“Nelson”) is a benign snow-plow driver, turned revenge serial killer after his son “Kyle” (Neeson’s real-life son, Michael Redgrave) is mistakenly murdered by egregious drug traffickers; Colorado’s glacial mass and unforgiving, antagonistic, snowbound roads serve as ...

WHAT MEN WANT

Dimpled, dazzling Taraji P. Henson registered as a dynamic, minimally heralded performer on my inventory of “actors to track” when she  played detective “Joss Carter” on television’s “Person of Interest” (2011-2016, Joss was eliminated in the third season); her career, stunningly escalated in 2016’s “Hidden Figures” with her brilliant depiction of NASA mathematician, Katherine Johnson (1918-), in director Adam Shankman’s ...

THE LEAST OF THESE: THE GRAHAM STAINES STORY

With all the fantastical, superficial, sensational movies spawned upon the screen, “The Least of These” will quietly shrivel into obscurity, an undeserving demise for an analysis in quiet devotion, a pure evaluation of a sincere and godly man; Mother Teresa (1910-1997), founder of the “Missionaries of Charity”, whose altruistic dedication to the sick, disenfranchised, poverty-stricken of India, earned her a ...

MISS BALA

With Cassandra prescience, harrowingly recognizing a precursor to a “Bala” franchise: “Ms.”, “Mrs.”, “Gramma Bala”; has to be terminated in the first trimester. Director Catherine Hardwicke and actors Gina Rodriguez (Miss Bala) and Ismael Cruz-Cordova struggle and fail in the recreation of Mexico’s 2011 Oscar nominee of the same name. “Gloria” (Rodriquez) is a naïve, makeup artist, in the wrong ...

SERENITY ZERO STARS

An abusive, egregious example of “poetic license” gone awry, a freefall of intense mediocrity; an embarrassment for two Academy Award winning actors: Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway as one-dimensional, divorced parents of an astrologically gifted son “Patrick” (Rafael Sayegh) who scripts the killing of his wretched stepfather “Frank” (Jason Clarke) from his wizardly computer. Commencing with unsubtle, unsuccessful, plagiaristic references ... Read More »
