The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) – Review

4 Stars

Ben Stiller proves himself an extremely talented force behind the camera, and never before has he been so appealing as an actor. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a tour de force, a fantastic film with a dynamite cast, subtle humor and amusing riffs on action-films and advertising. This updated retelling of the 1955 film was originally to star the rubber-faced Jim Carrey, when that fell through Stiller picked up the project and it’s hard to imagine anyone else inhabiting the character or directing the film, it’s that special.

Next of Kin (1989) – Review

2 Stars

Next of Kin has the feel of a forgotten Steven Seagal picture.
