“Mortal Engines:” Beautiful Steampunk with a Dense Story

“Mortal Engines” based on the book of the same name by Philip Reeve is directed by Christian Rivers with a screenplay by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Peter Jackson.  I love Steampunk. I love a story that can incorporate Steampunk elements with a great plot. When I watched the previews for “Mortal Engines”, I thought […]

At Eternity’s Gate: A Biopic Through The Artist’s Lens | Ro Reviews

Walking in someone else’s shoes is usually just a turn of phrase. But in At Eternity’s Gate, cinematographer Benoît Delhomme merges abstract angles, light, and color into a first-person point of view that converges perfectly with Julian Schnabel’s story about the final years in van Gogh’s life. The “enhanced reality” creates a perspective to drive […]

Bohemian Rhapsody Leaves Too Much “Bio” out of the Pic | Ro Reviews

Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic based on the legendary band, Queen. This story picks up shortly before Freddy Mercury, born Farrokh Bulsara of Parsi descent, joins guitarist/astrophysics scholar Brian May (Gwilym Lee) and drummer/dental student Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) with a parking lot audition engagingly depicted with just the right amount of humor and irony; and […]

Can You Ever Forgive Me? Is a “Must See” this Award Season | Ro Reviews

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a biopic about biographer, Lee Israel, and her astonishing fall from literary grace and slide into infamy. I say without hyperbole, Melissa McCarthy as the hard-drinking, foul-mouthed and abrasive Lee Israel is her best performances ever. • Lee Israel (McCarthy) is a writer of biographies. She’s a woman with little interest […]

Review: “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” An Enchanting Reinterpretation

  When I was young, I read “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.” My mother had many obscure and unusual stories and fairytales. I remember loving the story, especially with its lessons on looking past a person’s looks and loving the person within. When I was older, I loved music, especially classical music and one […]

In Life Itself, Perseverance is the Point | Ro Reviews

lifeitself_day11-889.CR2

Don’t see Life Itself if you aren’t ready to fully engage and be in your feelings. Seriously. Life Itself is a full-on drama. It’s built on the highs, lows, drama, and unexpected melodrama of introspection played out in three acts; or rather five chapters. It has no “just-for-a-laugh” moments, no throw-away tension breakers, or mere transitions between […]

Juliet, Naked: A Romance That Successfully Crosses The Digital Divide | Ro Reviews

There haven’t really been that many romantic comedies this year. At least, not the type that hasn’t felt like they’re faithfully following a formula. Then I saw Juliet, Naked starring Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke and Chris Dowd. Annie Platt (Rose Bryne), a museum curator in a seaside English town, is in a relationship with Duncan Thomas  (Chris O’Dowd) a […]
