Capsule reviews of new movie relieves
Bling Ring Given that the film currently ruling the box office is about Americans encouraged by their government to indulge their homicidal urges one night a year we referfing to Purge it tempting to hail the clueless young burglars in Bling Ring as veritable humanitarians. to be honest, They not out to kill if not hurt anyone. All they want to gain is your designer shoes, your personal cute tops, Your Rolex monitors, your dollars. And if you not a hot young celebrity they’ll give you alone anyway. not that Sofia Coppola latest film, with different true story, Isn chilling. it is always, And not only because it displays the soulless nature of our fameobsessed youth culture. It also that Coppola doesn judge these kids. It on purpose, But it makes the whole industry a little depressing. Coppola bases her movie on a 2010 Vanity Fair article regarding the socalled Bling Ring, several mostly 19yearolds who stole some $3 million in jewelry and designer goods from Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and the like. It as clear as day that Coppola knows this milieu, What these kids wear and the direction they speak. Coppola has chosen beginners for leads, And gives her most famous cast member, Emma Watson, A helping role. She the best fun to watch. Rated R for teen drug and alcohol use, And language including brief sexual personal references. 90 no time at all. Three stars associated with four. New hopes of boxoffice riches and franchise serials rest on Zac Snyder latest seek to put Superman back into flight. But Snyder joyless production, Leaden as if consists of the stuff of its hero metallic nickname, has nothing soaring about it. Flying men in capes is grave business in Snyder solemn superman, An origin tale of the DC Comics hero that goes more than two hours before the least joke or smirk. this is simply not your Superman of red tights, Phone booth improvements, Or fortresses of isolation, But one of Christ vision, Krypton money and spaceships. Beefy Brit Henry Cavill gets the cape, With Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer serving size as his Krypton parents, along with Kevin Costner (Back associated with the corn stalks) And Diane side of the road as his earthly ones. When over-all Zod (ervin Shannon) involves Earth, Clark Kent must embrace his previously hidden away powers. Snyder (“300”) Doesn have the material or inclination to make his grim film as thoughtprovoking as Dark Knight by Christopher Nolan (A vendor here). The gravity that cloaks this Superman is probably an en vogue costume. PG13 for intense sequences of scifi violence, Action and damage, And for some text. 144 a short time. Two stars not in four.
