Dan Gertler Reviews: Mad Max- Fury Road

It’s mad, it’s furious, it’s the best action film you’ll see this year. Set in a future desert wasteland, the little water and gasoline they have left are the people’s last hope for survival. Add to this a vicious dictator, a man with a talent for survival, and a women with a fierce talent to…

Dan Gertler Reviews: Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie, known for her movie roles as much as for her beauty, humanitarian activities, and her relationship with Brad Pitt, is one of my favorite Hollywood actresses. With such a blooming acting career (which also includes her earning the highest pay among Hollywood actresses) it is hard to believe she has only been with…

Dan Gertler Reviews: Ben Affleck

While many actors and actresses try their luck with filmmaking after establishing a successful acting career, Ben Affleck seems to me the only one who was actually born to do both. From his acting and directing career to his personal humanitarian activities in the Congo area, here’s why Affleck deserves your attention. Affleck was born…

Let me tell you why. Let’s start with the great performance given by Bradley Cooper who plays the role of…

In Cooper’s case, this means a change from a sloppy supporting actor in films like The Hangover to a serious leading star in films like American Sniper, Silver Lining Playbook, and more. Luckily for us, he is young enough to still live…

Unfamiliar with the nation’s politics and history, Garrigan falls into the welcoming hands of the new African president, Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker), who asks…

Dan Gertler reviews: Invictus

After being released from prison after having lost 27 years of his life, Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) is elected the first black president of South Africa. After attending a rugby game in which the Springboks (South Africa’s team) lose, he invites François Pienaar (Matt Damon) to tea and inspires him to lead his team and…

Dan Gertler reviews: Seven

Seven, as in the Seven Deadly Sins that the perverted, tragically and incredibly intelligent murderer inflicts upon his victims in their dying moments. This film is not for those with weak stomachs. It is excessively graphic and emotionally disturbing. But if you manage to move beyond the immediate horror and reach the level of reflection…
