In Review: Les Miserables

 

How do you bring a beloved 150-year-old story that inspired the world’s longest-running musical (seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and 21 languages) to the big screen? And, perhaps even more important, why?

In Review: Chimpanzee

 

Despite the beautiful scenery and the uber-adorable leading chimp, the takeaway for me is still this: chimpanzees eat monkeys!

 

Chimpanzee

For the past three years, Disneynature has released a new nature documentary on Earth Day (or pretty close to it), including Earth (2009), Oceans (2010), and African Cats (2011). This year, their lens lands on the African rainforest and an impossibly adorable chimpanzee named Oscar.

In Review: Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and This Means War

 

It's romantic comedy time -- one that's delightful and one that's downright creepy.

 

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

The premise is preposterous. A Yemeni sheikh (Amr Waked) thinks his favorite pastime of salmon fishing—which he enjoys when staying at his palatial manor in Scotland—would bring peace and unity to the embattled people of his homeland. His arid homeland.

In Review: Big Miracle, Man on a Ledge, and Flowers of War

 

My take on recent films about folks who are trapped -- whales in an ice ridge, a man on a ledge, and a group of prostitutes in a cathedral during the Rape of Nanking.

 

Big Miracle

It's funny the things that bring warring parties together. In October 1988, it was a family of three whales—a dad, mom, and baby—who found themselves trapped off the coast of Barrow, Alaska, by the early arrival of ice around the Arctic Circle. The trio, who became known as Fred, Wilma, and Bamm-Bamm, was separated from the ocean by too many miles of unbroken ice—not enough to let these giant mammals breathe along the way to freedom.

In Review: The Iron Lady

 

Meryl Streep in an Oscar-worthy role -- within a film that tries to do a bit too much.

 

The Iron Lady

British biopics have been a steady favorite in recent years, offering both compelling character studies and standout performances. Think The Queen (about Queen Elizabeth II) and The King's Speech (about King George VI). The latest British leader to be added to this growing genre is Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.
