Retro Movie Review: 'Anna Karenina' (2012)

The stage itself vies for the spotlight in Joe Wright's unique adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's legendary novel. It is this strange and slightly off-putting approach to adapting the well-known tale that overwhelms an intimate storyline filled with lies, lust, love, loyalty, and betrayal.

All are topics, usually dealt with behind closed doors, only bleeding through to the spectacle of society when scandal paves the way for its ruinous entry. It is here that Wright fastidiously delves into the world of gossip and those who generate it by literally letting the film unfold in a theater.

Movie Review: 'Carrie Pilby' (2016)

Where do judgment, learning experiences, and morality intersect? This is one of the big questions haunting Carrie Pilby (Bel Powley), a genius, who went to college as a young teen and graduated when most are usually beginning.

Movie Review: 'The Hunter's Prayer' (2017)

Movie Poster for 'The Hunter's Prayer' starring Sam Worthington and Odeya Rush
These days, good action films are hard to come by and great action films are an all-out rarity. Much to this fan of the genre’s significant surprise, “The Hunter’s Prayer” is the latter. It is precisely paced, evocatively directed, and terrifically acted.

This entertaining genre entry centers on Lucas (Sam Worthington), an assassin hired to kill Ella (Odeya Rush), the orphaned daughter of a corrupt businessman, whose enemy has already succeeded in ending his and his wife’s life.

Movie Review: 'Berlin Syndrome' (2017)


When Clare (Teresa Palmer), an Australian photographer visiting Berlin meets Andi (Max Riemelt), a teacher at a local school, a palpable chemistry quickly develops between them. They spend time together, briefly getting to know one other before lust, fully consumes them.

After their latest night together, Claire tries to leave her lover's apartment. The door is locked and she cannot find a key to open it. She then slowly realizes the terrifying truth. Andi is not going to let her leave his isolated apartment. She is his prisoner.

Movie Review: 'Security' (2017)


Antonio Banderas stars in this engaging action thriller as Eduardo "Eddie" Deacon, a retired Marine captain, who takes a job working overnight security for a mall. As one might suspect, this job soon takes a suspenseful turn.

While being shown the ropes by the hilarious head honcho (an impressive Liam McIntyre), a frantic girl (Katherine de la Rocha) comes running to the doors begging for help. Someone is coming for her and it is up to Eddie and his new colleagues to protect her.

Writing About: 'Poldark' Season 3 + 'Game of Thrones' Season 8

What do “Poldark” and “Game of Thrones” have in common? Besides both series being costume dramas, I have been writing about both of them on the Inquisitr.

“Poldark” Season 3 begins airing on PBS Masterpiece on October 1 and “Game of Thrones” recently ended its seventh season. While both series are in different places in their run, writing about them has been easy to do, as can be seen in previous Writing About features.
