The fact that Lucy, the enabled heroine in Luc Besson’s ambitiously
nuts sci-fi-er, can get people to do exactly what she wants them to do
by merely glancing at them made me, frankly, a little jealous...
Magic in the Moonlight
Had this pretty trifle been made by a different filmmaker, perhaps I
could have just sat back and enjoyed the scenery. But it wasn’t....
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
The strength of this mythical morality tale and the
CGI surrounding it almost make up for the short shrift
given to the humans in this chapter. Note I said ‘almost’...
If I have any quibble at all with Richard Linklatter’s glorious film,
it’s the title. Because while the ambitious concept is to follow one
boyhood, the movie is just as much about a family and about America...
Earth to Echo
This derivative mash up has one shining light. And it isn’t the
glowy-eyed bot that’s supposed to charm the kiddies...
Clint Eastwood’s big screen adaptation of the Broadway smash is not without
its rewards; getting there, though, requires acceptance and patience...
Edge Of Tomorrow
Yes, Tom Cruise’s time trippy sci-fi-er is the best surprise of the summer...
The Fault in Our Stars
Do you have to love John Green’s best selling novel to love this movie?
Maybe. For the rest of us, the no-fault stars carry us a long way.
Anyone curious about the state of women in film or just women
in general must see Gillian Robespierre’s Obvious Child...
A Million Ways to Die in the West
Are you kidding me? Ah, if only...
Yes, I cringed. But I will also admit this blend of Sandler
silly and Barrymore sweetness isn’t half bad...
X-Men: Days of Future Past
The real super-power in this fast charging chapter? It’s James
McAvoy, who manages to give a real, ferocious performance
amidst the mutant splash we’ve come to expect...
This Godzilla takes itself very, very, seriously. Too bad we can’t.
This is a very silly movie. And it isn’t.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The only truly amazing things in this hyper, bloated re-dux are the
actors, whom director Marc Webb lets fly with some remarkably
poignant stuff in between all the surrounding noise...
The Other Woman
I shudder to think what this ‘Bridesmaids Lite’
flick would have been had Leslie Mann not
been allowed to do her thing...
An intriguing start quickly plummets into a goofy sci-fi
thriller, never rising from its traditional roots...
This slim and pretty terrific thriller may just prove to be the ultimate
antidote to this summer’s bloated superhero onslaught...
Darren Aronofsky’s Noah is as political as it is spiritual.
And, yeah, the effects are pretty swell, too...
Rob The Mob
Just like the true life anti-heroes it portrays, this little movie
packs what might be considered surprising heat...
Nymphomaniac: Volume I
Leave it to Lars von Trier to create a movie
about sex that’s not traditionally sexy at all...
Small on scale, this terse thriller plays us like a finely tuned, well, you know...
There is a logic to resurrecting this franchise in the videogame era
and while this reboot isn’t as much inventive fun as its original,
this not -bad take does serve its purpose...
Had this historical drama really relied on the strength of its convictions,
George Clooney’s good old fashioned movie might have flowed better...
Promising pedigree aside, this nonsensical romance’s a laborious entertainment...

ENTERTAINMENT REPORTS, VIDEO AND MOVIE REVIEWS.
Her voice is heard throughout the 50 states and around the world by more than one million listeners on her syndicated radio programs:
Joanna Langfield's People Report and Video and Movieinute.
She is also seen and heard domestically and internationally as a regular contributing commentator on CNN International, CNN, Fox News and CNBC. As a columnist and reporter, her articles have been published in such high profile magazines as Video Review and McCall's.
Joanna Langfield is known for taking the celebrity interview to another level with probing looks at celebrities' insights rather than just their latest
projects. As a result, she has secured a niche among the nation's premier interviewers and movie critics reporting on radio and television.
Joanna began her career on the production staff of a local Boston television station. She then focused her energies towards radio and
began producing talk shows at WMEX-AM in Boston.
After moving to New York, she found herself at WMCA-AM, where she served as executive producer to the legendary talk show personalities Barry Gray and Sally Jessy Raphael. She began hosting a one-minute movie review spot which, in turn, led the way to her own top-rated weekend call in-show, The Joanna Langfield Show from 1980-1983.
When Joanna moved to WABC-AM and hosted The Joanna Langfield Show every Saturday night from 9:00pm to midnight, it quickly became the highest rated show in its time slot.
From 1987-1989, Joanna hosted Today's People on the ABC Radio network, which was fed daily to over 300 stations around the country. She also worked closely with WABC-TV as a regular on-air contributor.
In 1989, Joanna decided to produce and syndicate her own radio reports. She formed her own radio production company, Joanna Langfield Entertainment Reports.
Joanna is heard and seen domestically and internationally as one of the top authoritative commentators on the entertainment industry.
