It’s a movie that has a similar look as the Underworld films and only about as good as the worst of those. That’s not saying a great deal, I’m afraid, yet, I, Frankenstein still isn’t the worst film I’ve seen, or even likely the worst we’ll see this year. Oh, three cheers to the Hollywood crap machine.

When you think about a film that centers around a lonely writer that falls in love with a sophisticated computer operating system, you probably think how silly that idea sounds. But if you think about it in todays current social media context and the way that smart phones have infiltrated our lives, it may not be as absurd as you imagine.
You get a lot of movie for your 16 bucks with The Wolf of Wall Street, but you’d have a better time if you got less movie. It’s two hours and 59 minutes, which sounds like director Martin Scorcese said to Paramount, “You don’t want a three hour movie? I haven’t given you a three hour movie!”
