Four Lions Movie Review

Surely to be one of the more controversial movies of the year, especially in this Tea Party-led society we suddenly live in, Four Lions is about four British Muslims who, disillusioned with the western world, decide they’re going to wage jihad against their country. In other words, they’re going to blow some sh*t up. Oh, […]

Morning Glory Movie Review

From director Roger Michell (Venus, Notting Hill) and writer Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) comes Morning Glory, a funny, witty behind-the-scenes look into all the glory and ugliness of early morning TV.  Rachel McAdams stars as a rising TV producer, who, after being laid off from her job, begins work at […]

Blu-Ray Review: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Michael Cera haters got a smack down this summer. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is as if all of Cera’s work up until this point has been preparation for this one uber-role. Michaela Cera is best at playing Michael Cera, but equip him with an awesome screenplay and super powers and you get Michael Cera […]

Paranormal Activity 2 Movie Review

Truly scary movies come along only once every several years. Or two years in a row, if you allowed last year’s surprise blockbuster Paranormal Activity to get under your skin. Given that the low-budget horror movie went on to become the most profitable movie of all time (and also appeared on numerous “scariest movies” lists), […]

Due Date Movie Review

It’s a recipe for success. Todd Philips, director of Old School and The Hangover, reunites with star Zach Galifianakis for a road trip film that also features A-lister Robert Downey, Jr. Previews suggest Due Date is the next It-comedy, a sleeper hit to roll through the holiday season. But sometimes recipes end in disaster. Read […]

127 Hours Movie Review

The Oscar race just got a little more crowded as Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours enters the mix. An energetic, beautifully shot and superbly acted film based on the harrowing true story of Aaron Ralston, a devil-may-care adventurer who finds himself alone and trapped in an isolated canyon in Utah. His hand pinned between a rock […]

Blu-Ray Review: Highlander vs. Highlander II

Highlander is one of those ’80’s movies action fans look back on fondly. The movie isn’t great, but it is what it is. A tale of immortality and a battle to end all battles, Highlander is an adequately done action-drama that shifts in between character Conner MacLeod’s past and present. In the 25 years since […]

Blu-Ray Review: Toy Story 3

Believe it or not, there is one Oscar race that is already decided and done. That race doesn’t belong to an actor or a drama, but to Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 3, the sure-lock for Best Animated Picture at the 2011 Academy Awards. Pixar has won nearly every contest in this category since the beginning of […]

Apocalypse Now: Full Disclosure Blu-Ray Collection

Every week the Hollywood studios release more and more previously released movies on Blu-Ray, looking to squeak out a few extra dollars from their stagnant home video businesses. Most movies don’t need Blu-Ray. Do you need to see Sleepless in Seattle in Blu-Ray? What about a comedy made in 1950? As I said, most movies […]

Monsters Movie Review

Six years after a NASA probe crashed in northern Mexico, bringing with it an extraterrestrial pathogen that spawned a new species of massive creatures, a good section of the country has been quarantined. The United States has never been safer from Mexicans; unfortunately, both sides now have to contend with hard-to-kill aliens. Monsters, the new […]

Winter’s Bone Movie Review

One of the first movies to receive Oscar buzz this year, Winter’s Bone was released over the summer without much fanfare – but lots of critical praise. Coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on October 26, Winter’s Bone features an intriguing story and star-making performance by Jennifer Lawrence. Unfortunately, the movie itself fails to live up […]

George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead Movie Review

Survival of the Dead, the latest in George A. Romero’s insufferable zombie franchise, is the latest proof that the once acclaimed filmmaker is decades behind the curve. The movie overflows with terrible dialogue, bad acting and embarrassing special effects. Read FilmJabber’s full George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead movie review.

Casino Jack and the United States of Money Movie Review

All but a shoe-in for an Oscar nomination, Alex Gibney puts Jack Abramoff in the spotlight in his latest punishing documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money, which paints a disturbing web of bribes, greed, corruption and twisted American views amongst some of the most powerful men in the government, primarily Republicans. Read […]

The Good Heart Movie Review

Brian Cox and Paul Dano star in the dialogue-fueled The Good Heart, a movie about a jackass bartender and owner who takes in a young homeless man to raise him as his successor. Sharp-tongued and brutal, he in many ways plays overlord to his young counterpart, even though he does sincerely care for him. Read […]

The Garden Movie Review

The Oscar-nominated documentary The Garden explores the sad story of a community garden in the heart of L.A. threatened by bulldozers, politicians and greed. The largest of its kind in the country, the garden arose from the Rodney King riots, providing typically poor immigrants the means to grow their own food. The land, unfortunately, is […]
