Movie Reviews

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 […]

Chloe Striptease: A Blu-Ray Movie Review

I want Amanda Seyfried’s agent. Just a few years ago, the actress was just “the daughter on HBO’s Big Love” or “the really dumb one from Mean Girls“, sort of cute, not really scorching hot. But Mamma Mia that career later and she’s received rave reviews and been in a couple moderate hits; suddenly, she’s […]

Revanche Movie Review

Revenge, or the desire for revenge, can gnaw at the soul. Or so I’m told. In Gotz Spielmann’s Oscar-nominated drama Revanche, a simple criminal waits and works in a sleepy town, his true motives simmering just below the surface. Alex (Johannes Krisch) is an ex-con who works as a bouncer at a brothel, where he […]

No Impact Man Movie Review, but How Impactful?

I’m an environmentally minded individual, but I’m also a consumer. I recycle whenever possible. I turn the lights off when I leave a room. I don’t buy bottle water. And I have strong feelings about the pace at which the world – and the United States in particular – is adjusting to environmental realities. But […]

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Movie Review

Whoever said “mediocrity sells” is right, as The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is gearing up for its second week of release $200 million richer. It’s amazing what cheesy dialogue and pouty characters can do for a movie. Bella, Edward and Jacob return for the third movie in the four-and-a-half-part series, and thankfully it’s no New Moon: […]

Youth in Revolt Movie Review

Michael Cera has typecasted himself as Michael Cera. If a Hollywood production is every looking to have Michael Cera in their movie, they know who to go to. In Youth in Revolt, Michael Cera once again plays Michael Cera, but, just for shits and giggles, he also plays his alter ego Francois Dillinger, a very […]

Valentine’s Day Movie Review

How many big-name actors does it take to guarantee a movie cannot be very good? The answer is in Valentine’s Day, though you can have the privilege of counting the recognizable faces who decided to cash it in for a complete waste of time. Among them are Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, […]

Toy Story 3 Movie Review: Great, but Not the Best

Another year, another Pixar movie and an all-but-assured lock for Best Animated Picture of the Year. The long-anticipated Toy Story 3 is here, and with it marks the return of Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang that is responsible for introducing audiences to CG-animated cartoons. Nostalgia runs high and Pixar once again turns […]

Blu-Ray Review: Predator Ultimate Hunter Edition

The Robert Rodriguez-produced “reboot” of the Predator franchise – Predators – opens this coming Friday, and it was inevitable that 20th Century Fox would unleash an updated edition of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Predator to milk a few extra dollars out of willing cinephiles. This new Blu-Ray edition, titled The Ultimate Hunter Edition, doesn’t provide […]

Bao Tran’s Black Coffee Movie Review

Rising filmmaker Tran Quoc Bao is at it again, this time with another deliciously simple short film called Black Coffee, about a politician named David. David is a good guy, but he’s a little too nice to a woman who isn’t his wife. When someone snaps pictures of he and his lover kissing and blackmails […]

Percy Jackson DVD Review: Not Very Heavenly

Based on a seemingly popular book series, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief is about a dyslexic teenager in New York who, after being attacked by his step-teacher-turned-winged-creature-from-hell, discovers that he is in fact a demigod, the son of Poseidon, can control water in unnatural ways (he doesn’t have to go to the […]

SIFF Movie Review: Patagonia

The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) is long over, but this just goes to show how busy I’ve been: between long work weeks, sports and multiple bachelor parties, movies have taken a back seat to things are “allegedly” more important. Still, I managed to get to two SIFF films out of its four-week run, the […]

The Wolfman Movie Review

I’m no math whiz (actually, I kind of am), but when a movie costs $125 to $150 million to make, and only makes $70 million in theaters, that means it lost money. A lot of money. And I’m no movie buff (OK, I definitely am), but when a movie gets bumped back from November 2008 […]

8: The Mormon Proposition Movie Review

America is a funny place these days. And by funny, I mean disappointing. While conservatives continue to fret about the degradation of American values in the economy and our way of life – citing liberty and freedom – they continue to restrict the freedom of their fellow citizens. Homosexuals are just the latest minority to […]
