ST VINCENT

Reviewed by GREG KING Director: Theodore Melfi Stars: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O'Dowd, Jaeden Lieberher, Ann Dowd, Terrence Howard, Nate Cordrry, Ron McLarty, Dario Barosso, Scott Adsit. St Vincent is a slightly predictable, surprisingly upbeat, and genuinely feel good comedy/drama and coming of age tale about an unlikely friendship. And it is, arguably, one of the better films of Bill Murray's career. It is also good to see him return to his comedic roots for a chance. Vincent McKenna (played by Murray) is a former Vietnam vet who Continue reading

BIG HERO 6

Reviewed by GREG KING Directors: Don Hall, Chris Williams Stars: voices of Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, James Cromwell, Alan Tudyk, Jamie Chung, T J Miller, Damon Wayans jr, Genesis Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph.

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2

Reviewed by GREG KING Director: Sean Anders Stars: Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Christoph Waltz, Chris Pine, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jonathan Banks, Lindsay Sloane, Keegan-Michael Key. The original Horrible Bosses was an okay comedy about three hapless and downtrodden workers who conspired to kill off their mean spirited and loathsome bosses, but found that their plans went awry. However, it didn't really need a sequel. Nonetheless, given its success at the box office, it has got one. Thankfully though, unlike a lot of other Continue reading
