Monkeying Around with Rise of the Planet of the Apes – Review by Jamie Gilcig – August 12, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON –   Yes, I actually bought that Signet paperback book as a young un.   We had this country place in Cumberland Head NY.  Rocky Point community, and while picking up some groceries on a rainy Sunday I grabbed this off the spin rack.   Loved that A&P!   I was hooked and […]

Midnight in Paris REVIEW by Jamie Gilcig – July 25, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON –   I’ve been watching Woody Allen films for an awfully long time.    Midnight in Paris is his highest grossing film ever.   It’s light.  It’s charming.   Is it filling and satisfying?   Yes…and no…My favorite Allen film is The Purple Rose of Cairo and there’s a common theme that’s hammered […]

True Grit Review by Jamie Gilcig – Coen’s Shoot Em Dead Eye – Sure Oscar Gold – You have got to see this film! – January 28, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

True Grit Review by Jamie Gilcig – Coen’s Shoot Em Dead Eye – Sure Oscar Gold – You have got to see this film! – January 28, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – To some John Wayne purists making a remake of True Grit is sacrilege.  Even today the Duke still is a huge presence in our culture and film history. The Coen Brothers didn’t so much as do a remake of True Grit any more than Baz Lurhman’s Romeo & Juliet was a remake […]

The Social Network movie two thumbs up – Galaxy Theatre in Cornwall Ontario – Two Thumbs Down – Movie Review – October 18, 2010

Cornwall ON – It’s rare now that I ever get any time off.  It’s election season – Christmas is coming up, and we’re growing way too fast for me and my little elves to keep up with what’s going on around locally, nationally or in the world! I decided to take the afternoon off and […]

Alice in Wonderland Review – Tim Burton Goes Linear – Stars Earn their Pay – Missed Opportunities – Cornwall Ontario – March 8, 2010

Alice in Wonderland Review – Tim Burton Goes Linear – Stars Earn their Pay – Missed Opportunities – Cornwall Ontario – March 8, 2010

Cornwall ON- My expectations for this film were huge.    You have a director known for his visionary prowess teamed up with some amazing talent.   Johnny Depp, Scottish accent and all was superb. Helena Bonham Carter and the amazing Crispin Glover show why it’s always more fun to play the villians, and even Anne […]

It’s Complicated – It’s Funny – It’s Meryl Streep at her Streepiest – Review – December 27, 2009 – Cornwall Ontario

It’s Complicated – It’s Funny – It’s Meryl Streep at her Streepiest – Review – December 27, 2009 – Cornwall Ontario

I took my wife and mom to this movie over the holidays.    The film, by Nancy Meyers, hit the notes I think it wanted to. It’s fun.  It’s poignant.  It asks some questions, and it’s worth the price of admission.  I find it so odd how society has changed and that divorced families are […]

Lebowski Meets Strangelove – The Men That Stare at Goats – Cornwall Ontario Movie Review – November 14, 2009

Lebowski Meets Strangelove – The Men That Stare at Goats – Cornwall Ontario Movie Review – November 14, 2009

So I went to see “The Men That Stare At Goats” .  I was expecting a Coen’esque trip and wasn’t let down. Part “Big Lebowski” part “Dr. Strangelove”; this flick isn’t Oscar worthy, but the cast make it worthwhile. Jeff Bridges, Ewan MacGregor, George Clooney, and Kevin Spacey in one of his campiest roles, made […]
