Ghostbusters: Calm Down Everybody, They Did Not Turn Ghostbusters into Bridesmaids [Review]

I never got why people were so upset about this new Ghostbusters.  Sure the decision to make all four new Ghostbusters female seemed gimmicky; it was one of the first things I heard about this new remake and it was clearly a marketing point.  But there seem to be people actually upset about this.  I would have been among them if the gender of the cast detracted from the quality of the film.  It did not.  Calm down everybody, they did not turn Ghostbusters into Bridesmaids.

The Huntsman Winter’s War: The Trailer is a Cinematic Masterpiece. The Film was 113 Minutes Too Long [Review]

At first I didn’t like The Huntsman: Winter’s War.  Then, as I kept watching, it seemed to find its footing a bit and I began to see that there was a great movie in here, struggling to get out.  What’s more, I had this nagging feeling that I’d seen this great movie before.  Near the end of the movie, I realized where I’d seen it – in the trailer.  At 2 minutes, 30 seconds, the trailer for The Huntsman, Winter’s War, was a gorgeous cinematic masterpiece.  What I saw this afternoon was the same film except it was 113 minutes too long.

In the Heart of the Sea: An Engaging & Expertly Made Retelling of Moby Dick [Review]

Christmas is coming and so is Star Wars, so the timing for In the Heart of the Sea could have been better – it was the only thing that came out this week (at least in Lethbridge).    This isn’t normally the type of movie I’d spend time and money on, but I’m glad I went anyway.  Fair warning, this review might be a bit more spoilery than usual, but if you don’t at least have a passing knowledge of what Moby Dick is about, you kind-of deserve what you get, spoiler-wise.

Vacation: Deftly Executed and Genuinely Funny [Review]

It’s been 20 years or so since I saw the original Vacation and I have to admit, I wasn’t a fan.  I just didn’t find Chevy Chase funny (still don’t).  But movies have changed a lot since then and so have I.  Seeing this Vacation makes me want to go back and see it again in case I missed something.   I went into this just for the Chris Hemsworth scene (you know the one I mean) but I ended up liking the whole thing.
