“The Living Room of Jacksonville”: Residents Rage Against Sale of Five Points Theater

Words by Mallory Pace Since 2011, the Sun-Ray Cinema has been a landmark spot for what’s widely considered the last of historic movie theaters, bringing in residents from all corners and outskirts of Riverside, providing a feeling of nostalgia for when times were simpler, people were friendlier, and movie concessions were cheaper. Before it was Sun-Ray, it was a conglomerate

July 2024 Film Reviews

INSIDE OUT 2 Pixar’s “Inside Out” explored our feelings by taking us inside the mind of a young girl named Riley where we see the personified emotions Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust working together in a control room to guide her through life’s ups and downs. The sequel picks

Brave Movie Review

June 23, 2012
by Rick Grant This latest Pixar/Disney animated film promotes Scottish pride with its lush landscapes, snow capped mountains, and waterfalls. Yet, the richly detailed characters are funny and the film is generally entertaining. Aye, after enjoying this magical highland romp, I donned my Grant clan hat and kilt. The story

That's My Boy movie review

June 15, 2012
by Alex McClain Donny Berger, played by Adam Sandler, seems to be living the life as he fulfills every teenage boy’s fantasy: to sleep with one of his hot and attractive school teachers. When you’re 13 years old, it’s hard to resist the seduction of an older woman. Although it’s

Rock of Ages Movie Review

June 15, 2012
by Rick Grant This stage musical adapted to film is goofy enough to be wildly entertaining. The film is a glorious parody of itself. Indeed, the work brandishes so many cliches, they cancel each other out. Ultimately, the film version is over-the-top funny as the hair bands of the 1980s

Men in Black III Movie Review

May 28, 2012
Alpine Groves in Fruit Cove in Switzerland by Rick Grant Three’s a charm. With Barry Sonnenfeld at the helm and Etan Coen co-writing the screenplay, the Men in Black franchise finally hits the screens with plenty of thrills and an intelligent back-in-time story. The scenario involves J (Will Smith) going

Battleship – movie review

May 18, 2012
by AARON KINNEY Fans of the Hasbro board game will likely be disappointed, as the film adaptation of Battleship bears little similarity to its source material. There is a battleship, but rather than an enemy fleet, it battles aliens. Somewhere along the line, it seems a frizzy-haired executive shouted for

The Dictator Movie Review

May 15, 2012
Photography by Maya Adkins Photography by Maya Adkins Photography by Maya Adkins by Rick Grant Clearly, Sacha Baron Cohen’s satirical style lacks subtlety. However, in this film, his heavy artillery approach to sending up the fictional Mid Eastern dictator (think Saddam Hussein) blasts onto the screen with hardy laughs. In

Dark Shadows Movie Review

May 11, 2012
by Rick Grant Based on a 1970s TV show, this is the umpteenth collaboration between Johnny Depp and Tim Burton and clicks on most all levels. Toward the end of the film, Burton gets carried away with the CGI special effects. However, it doesn’t really drag down the overall comedic

by Alexandra McClain Before there was an A- Team TV show in 1983, The Avengers could be considered the original “A-Team” from Marvel’s 1963 comic series. When Nick Fury, director of the International Peacekeeping Agency S.H.I.E.L.D, finds himself desperate and almost defenseless against a threat of global safety, he must

John Carter Movie Review

March 9, 2012
by Rick Grant Writer-director, Andrew Stanton adapted his screenplay from Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic 1912 novel, “A Princess of Mars.”Yeah, it’s the same author who wrote “Tarzan.” Disney spent a ton of dough on this fantasy adventure hoping for a blockbuster the likes of “Avatar.” After the final cut was
