This Is Where I Leave You

This comedy about a death is a funeral for the audience. But, hey, here’s your chance to sit shiva with an all-star cast, led by Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver and Corey Stoll, who are all led astray by a smarmy script and sitcom-y direction by Shawn…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Tusk

If you’re a Kevin Smith junkie, as I am, you’ll appreciate the verbal pinwheels he spins around the horror genre in Tusk. If not, go dull your brain cells at Hollywood multiplex gunk. Tusk feels as offhand and undercooked as a podcast, which is how it started for Smith, so…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Tracks

Tracks sounds like a slog, the true story of Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska) as she treks 1,700 miles across the Australian desert with four capricious camels and a black dog named Diggity. The journey, which spawned an article for National Geographic and a global bestseller, begins in April 1977 and…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

The Skeleton Twins

Abandon hope of Stefon and Gilly, all who enter here. Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig will blow you away with the comic and dramatic range of their performances in The Skeleton Twins. But this isn’t a series of sketches. This is one from the heart. It’s not that The Skeleton…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby

Jessica Chastain is a shining star with acting skills that resonate beyond her beauty. She is at her fierce, unerring best, which is saying something, in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.

The Drop

Who doesn’t miss seeing James Gandolfini onscreen? The Drop, a potent, propulsive crime drama, gives us one more chance to salute the formidable talent of a remarkable actor who died in June 2013 at age 51. Gandolfini is dynamite in his final screen role, as Marv, a small-time crook who…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Pride

There is so much “inspired by a true story” crap churned out in Hollywood that when the genuine article appears, it’s a shock. Such a movie is Pride, a Brit dramedy that is a crowd-pleaser in the best sense of the word. Even when it’s tugging hard at your heartstrings,…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Statik Selektah: What Goes Around [Album Review]

KevinNottingham.comKevinNottingham.com – The Underground Hip Hop Authority | Hip Hop Music, Videos & Reviews Relatively fresh on the heels of last year’s Extended Play, Statik Selektah gives us What Goes Around, which couldn’t have come along at a better time, ending a summer chock full of robotic-sounding experimental R&B and vapid raps with a little […]

Wetlands

Dump the kids and lock up Grandma, Wetlands is here to freak out the prudes and make “dirty” fun again. That it does. You won’t find a better movie anywhere that features a teen girl using her crotch to wipe a public toilet seat. If I still have your attention,…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

If I Stay

If Wetlands looks at teen life without blinkers, If I Stay prefers Hollywood-style, rose-colored glasses. Guess which one finds box-office gold? Based on Gayle Forman’s 2009 YA bestseller, If I Stay has the virtue of starring Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In, Hugo), 17, a skilled actress who can…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews
