Review Catch-Up: ‘Gangster Squad’, ‘Moneywood’, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’

06GANGSTER-articleLarge-300x180I’ve written a few reviews in the past month, but haven’t had the chance to post them here. Here they are in order of most recently published.

‘Gangster Squad’ Review: A Classic Gangster Film With Modern Flair

“The squad is a delight to watch in action, including the minor stumbles along the way. Fleischer has a keen eye for dramatic action and even manages to bring humorous, lighthearted moments from Beall’s script to life.”

‘Moneywood’ Review: Insults, Name-Dropping and Not Much Else

“Moneywood reads like a chance to name-drop Stadiem’s run-ins with powerful Hollywood elite, promote his past books and hope you feel bad for his failed screenplay Thirty Day Wonder.”

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ HFR 3D Review: A Beautiful Start to an Adventure

“The film is also wonderfully acted – particularly by Martin Freeman (Bilbo). It’s whimsical, lighthearted and relaxed. It still has the emotional impact and tension at the right moments, something Jackson has gotten better at in each film.”
