KINGS OF SUMMER – Review by Lexi Feinberg

Set in the suburbs of Ohio, “The Kings of Summer” is a coming-of-age story that plays like the love child of “Stand by Me” and “Moonrise Kingdom”. It is sweet and funny and weird, much like adolescent males themselves. In this case, two teenage guy friends have had enough of their nagging parents and since school’s out for summer, they decide to build a home of their own in the woods. Read more>>

“Choke” – Lexi Feinberg reviews

Chuck Palahniuk is notorious for writing unlikeable books about unsympathetic people, so it’s no big shock that “Choke,” his latest story to hit the big screen, centers around a total nimwit. What is surprising, however, is that a film about a scheming, soul-searching sex addict named Victor (Sam Rockwell) could be quite so tedious. Read more>>

“Towelhead” – Lexi Feinberg reviews

Jasira (Summer Bishil) has a bewitching power over men. She can’t seem to leave the house without several guys, the older the merrier, treating her like the latest Apple gadget they simply must add to their collection. They don’t let the fact that she is merely 13 years old deter them–it raises a “caution” sign at best, never a “stop.” Read more>>

“Sex and the City” – Lexi Feinberg reviews

“Atonement,” review by Lexi Feinberg

“Atonement” features the type of heart-tugging movie magic generally found in long-gone eras – it’s more “From Here To Eternity” than the overwrought “Cold Mountain” or “Seinfeld”-ridiculed “The English Patient.” Finally, a new love story worth falling in love with. Read more
