Alice Reese

  Make no bones about it: when film reviewer and critic Alice Reese doesn't care for your movie, she'll say so. This week's Picks puts Alice at odds with independent film, "Force Majeure."

Praise this week goes to Jake Gyllenhaal in "Nightcrawler," a show about a shutterbug with a stomach for shocking scenes.

Alice also advises we check out, "Birdman," whose cast she can only compliment. Actors include Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Jr., and Zach Galafianakis.

Continuing off of the first movie, Dolphin Tale 2 is sure to entertain the whole family. With many laughs and some tearful moments, Alice Reese says that it is mostly based on true events, and is worth your trip.

The latest from Hollywood is being said to be worthy of an award.

Starring Alfred Molina and John Lithgow, Love is Strange is a story of two life-partners struggling to get by after George, the character played by Molina loses his job.

"Strangest", "Weirdest" and "Odd". Those are the words that Alice Reese used to describe the new movie, 'Frank'. It's about a man and his band, and everything in between.

Listen to what Alice has to say about Frank, A Trip to Italy and The November Man in this week's edition of Movie Picks.

If you're looking for a fun and entertaining comedy this weekend, Alice Reese says that Are You Here is not the movie to go see.

Filled with dry humor, a simple plot, and mediocre writing, Alice has dubbed this the "worst movie of the summer so far."

Check out what else she had to say about Are You Here,  along with reviews on If I Stay, When the Game Stands Tall, and The One I Love on this week's Movie Picks.
