Short movie reviews from the last 50+ years by Geoff Gershon. https://livingforthecinema.com/

    Cape Fear (1991)

    Cape Fear (1991)

    Just in time for Halloween, let’s review one of the craziest horror thrillers from the ‘90’s which came out almost thirty years ago and was directed by the Master himself Martin Scorcese….as his follow-up to a little film called Goodfellas.  

    It stars Robert DeNiro as ex-con Max Cady who is out for revenge against the attorney Sam Bowden who failed to keep him out of jail 14 years earlier played by Nick Nolte.  Sam’s wife and teenage daughter also get put in harm’s way, they’re played by Jessica Lange and Juliette Lewis – everyone just brings it with lights-out performances as both Lewis and DeNiro were nominated for Oscars at the time.  

    Come out, come out wherever you are!!!

    Halloween Kills (2021)

    Halloween Kills (2021)

    S P O I L E R     R E V I E W

    Michael Myers is back in Haddonfield and guess what he’s doing? Well, the title kind of gives that away but beyond him, also returning is Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode along with Judy Greer as her daughter Karen – Laurie is still recovering from the brutal events of the previous film as this movie picks up literally RIGHT where that one left off.  

    As a result, several of the local townspeople are on the hunt for Myers as he continues his rampage of death throughout their small town – they’re lead by Tommy Doyle played by Anthony Michael Hall, remember him?? 😊 

    David Gordon Green also returns as director and takes us through a carnage-filled journey through both the past and present – let’s see how this holds up compared to the surprisingly strong Halloween reboot-quel (?) from 2018!

    One Fine Day (1996)

    One Fine Day (1996)

    1996 was one great year for movies including a big studio RomCom starring George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer which came out just under 25 years ago.  

    They’re playing mismatched (or are they?) Manhattanites racing around the city, juggling work commitments and kids….all the while falling in love? 😊 

    Michael Hoffman directs this breezy, funny romp featuring two movie stars at their peak!

    No Time To Die (2021) - “Living For the Bond” Series – SPOILER REVIEW

    No Time To Die (2021) - “Living For the Bond” Series – SPOILER REVIEW

     S P O I L E R   R E V I E W
    Well, it’s finally here….the final James Bond starring Daniel Craig, and wow does he go out with a bang!  

    The story kicks off with 007 retired living with the lovely Madeline played Lea Sidoux but of course….the criminal underworld comes calling as he once again gets enmeshed with the terrorist organization SPECTRE lead by Christoph Waltz’s Blowfeld along with a mysterious new villain Safin played by recent Oscar-winner Rami Malek.  

    Also back along for the ride are Bond’s “Scooby gang” including Jeffrey Wright, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, and Ben Wishaw…in addition to a new OO7 played by Lashana Lynch.  Cary Joji Fukunaga directs this epic conclusion to the Craig Bond Saga and what results is an epic-length review including major spoilers, so be warned!

    Bound (1996)

    Bound (1996)

    Twenty-five years ago, this small indie neo-noir grabbed the attention of both critics and cinephiles by announcing a talented new duo of directors….the Wachowskis.  

    Three years later, they would direct The Matrix, and of course, the rest of the world noticed them after that blockbuster!

    Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly star as two neighbors who fall for each other…only one of them is living with a local gangster played by Joe Pantoliano who just laundered more than $2 million in mob money.  And what results is tense, twisty, sexy, and probably one of the best thrillers of the ‘90’s!

    Skyfall (2012) – “Living For the Bond” Series

    Skyfall (2012) – “Living For the Bond” Series

    As Daniel Craig’s run as James Bond is about to come to an end with the release of "No Time To Die", we review this movie which is his most popular Bond film and among the most popular in the history of the franchise.  

    It co-stars Oscar-winner Javier Bardem as Silva, a truly memorable villain who’s out for revenge against Bond’s boss, M played for the last time by Dame Judi Dench.  

    The film kicks off with a slam-bang action sequence culminating with Bond being shot and falling into a giant waterfall...a truly hypnotic opening credits' sequence which follows with Adele’s omnipresent title track playing over it, and then….it only gets better?
