The Runaways Movie Review

“Jailbait.” What better way to describe Dakota Fanning in The Runaways, in which she plays sexy young starlet Cherie Currie opposite Kristen Stewart, who plays Joan Jett. Both onscreen and in real life, the young actress has suddenly transformed from eerily good child actor to can’t-wait-til-she’s-eighteen sex symbol (for creepy perverted men, not me – […]

The Joneses Movie Review

People envy their neighbors and are willing to do – or buy – what it takes to be like them, according to the light drama The Joneses, which stars David Duchovny and Demi Moore as an enterprising “couple” who live and breathe product placements. The movie didn’t do well in theaters but is a surprisingly […]

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie Review

Who says PG-rated comedies can’t be funny? Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which has no big stars, is made for children and is based on a youth book series, has no right appealing to adults, but it does. Now out on DVD and Blu-Ray, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is one of the funniest and […]

Netflix Instant Play: The Original Inglorious Bastards

Similar name, but hardly the same. Be wary of the instant view flicks that may be a ‘cult classic’ to some but to others they are hours you won’t get back. It’s late at night, insomnia is visiting and nothing much is on the cable/satellite. That’s Ok because getting out of bed is not a […]

The White Ribbon Movie Review

A couple years ago, I took a quiz on Facebook to determine who my best relationship match is in regards to taste in movies. Being of considerable movie taste, it’s important that I don’t end up with someone with drastically inferior inclinations toward what is quality cinema. The resulting match: my brother. Thanks, Facebook. In […]

Sylvestor Stallone Blu-Ray Smackdown: Rambo Collector’s Set

Sylvestor Stallone’s new movie The Expendables explodes into theaters on August 13 (exaggerated marketing pitch? Watch the trailer and tell me you think a better word is suited to describe its arrival), and that means many of his big movies are getting the Blu-Ray “special edition” makeover – along with a few of his pals’ […]

The Bounty Hunter Movie Review

There are few people who don’t like Jennifer Aniston. She has good comedic timing, she’s pretty and she has done little to ruin her reputation since the “Friends” days. There are also few people who like her movies. The Bounty Hunter, Jennifer Aniston’s latest comedy, won’t do much to change audiences’ opinions as it’s an […]

Ready, Set, Bag! Movie Review: Are You Packing?

We all have a competitive streak in us. Some take it out through traditional methods like baseball or football; others through dodgeball, sumo wrestling or mixed martial arts. And some pack grocery bags. If you’re unaware of the competitive sport of grocery bag packing, then you must have been living in a cave for your […]

Salt Movie Review

Angelina Jolie is the only true female action star. She can sell it and people will buy it. She can be sexy and tough-as-nails at the same time. She has a knack for choosing high-adrenaline pictures. And yet, when you examine her resume, Jolie has yet to lead an action film that has cemented its […]

Countdown to Zero Movie Review

Countdown to Zero, the documentary by filmmaker Lucy Walker, traces the history of the most destructive singular invention in human history, the nuclear bomb.  The film also stresses the importance of working towards complete nuclear disarmament and the many ups and downs that have occurred en route to achieving this lofty goal. Read FilmJabber’s full […]

The Last Station Movie Review

Based on the novel by Jay Parini, The Last Station examines Russian author Leo Tolstoy’s struggle to balance his commitment to a life devoid of material things with fame, wealth and the needs of his loving wife and family. The movie, written and directed by Michael Hoffman, stars an incredible cast that includes James McAvoy, […]

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Movie Review

In lieu of an American remake by David Fincher in the near future, I decided it was about time to watch the Swedish thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which has grossed over $100 million worldwide. The movie only received a limited release in the United States, but it’s now available on Netflix Instant […]

Burma VJ Movie Review

An educated guess tells me that few Americans had heard of Burma, or Myanmar, until Cyclone Nargis swept through the country, killing over 200,000 people. The devastating disaster brought to American television sets a rare examination of the brutal military junta that commands the country. In Burma VJ: Reporting from a Closed Country, filmmaker Anders […]

Inception Movie Review

Christopher Nolan is one of the smartest, most sophisticated directors working today – if not the best. Ever since he marched onto the scene with Memento, the director has churned out one sophisticated thriller after the next. He masterfully blends mainstream delivery with an intelligence rarely seen in blockbusters. Inception is his latest masterpiece, an […]

Predators Movie Review

The 80′s continue to attempt a comeback in 2010 with the release of Predators, a throwback to the original film in the franchise. In this new version, Adrien Brody replaces Arnold Schwarzenegger as the badass muscleman (who saw that coming?), one of several commandos abducted from Earth and thrown together on an alien planet that […]
