Movie Reviews

Julia Movie Review

Tilda Swinton delivers an excellent performance in Julia, a surprisingly effective drama-thriller about a drunkard’s simple kidnapping scheme gone horribly wrong. People looking for something a little different should add this to their Netflix list – it’s available on Instant Play – immediately. Read FilmJabber’s full Julia movie review.

The Brothers Bloom Movie Review

In The Brothers Bloom, Mark Ruffalo and Adrien Brody star as the title characters, con men who decide they’re going to take advantage of a lonely but rich hermit, played by Rachel Weisz. But what they don’t suspect is that she is more daring and clever than first imagined. Oh, and when one of them […]

No Love for Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story

The economy. The economy. The economy. No subject is more talked about or important these days than the economy. So, it’s only natural that liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, having already taken on gun control, Republicans and universal healthcare, select the economy as the topic of his latest movie, the aptly titled Capitalism: A Love Story. […]

Old Dogs Movie Review: Blu-Ray Won’t Save This One

Friday was not a good day, and I blame Disney. Instead of partying my friends, I chose to watch Alice in Wonderland and Old Dogs, the latter of which arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray this week. Both movies are terrible, and the few beers I had between viewings weren’t enough. Read FilmJabber’s full Old Dogs […]

Ponyo Movie Review

Ponyo, the latest from acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro), is now available on Disney DVD and Blu-Ray, and it is one that every parent should go out and purchase immediately. Easily one of the better movies of 2009, Ponyo is an imaginative, intoxicating adventure the whole family will enjoy. Read FilmJabber’s […]

Food, Inc. Movie Review

Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, Food, Inc. provides a compelling look at the food industry and the consequences its actions have on American lifestyles. While the picture provides some insightful facts, it lacks the shooting gun to put it on the same plane as similar movies such as Super Size Me. Read […]

My ‘Precious’ Blu-Ray Experience: Not As Good the Second Time

Back in November, there was a clear front runner for Best Picture. The movie was Precious, or more officially Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, an utterly depressing tale of physical, mental and sexual abuse, teen pregnancy, down syndrome, AIDS, rape and obesity. After watching the movie in theaters, I described it as […]

Alice in Wonderland Movie Review

Friday was a good day, up until I left work. At 5 pm, I drove home, ate some food and did some dishes. At 8 pm, I finished watching the Disney movie Old Dogs, which was painfully bad. At 10 pm, I sat down in a sparsely populated theater to watch Tim Burton’s new movie […]

The Crazies Movie Review: Crazy Is As Crazy Does

The world just wouldn’t be the same without zombie movies. There’s just something deliciously satisfying about them. And despite the fact that they routinely share the same plot and the characters experience similar fates, the last decade has provided audiences with a shockingly consistent level of quality – in fact, I’d go so far as […]

Whiteout Movie Review

With the advent of special effects and life-like cartoons, the question continues to be posed: is the value of major actors in film deteriorating? Further pushing the issue are such films as The Hangover and a string of action flicks that have gone on to dominate the box office despite the lack of demonstrable stars. […]

The Private Lives of Pippa Lee Movie Review

Robin Wright turns in her best performance since Forrest Gump in the quirky drama-comedy The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, but the movie itself fails to leave a lasting impression. Written and directed by Rebecca Miller, Pippa Lee also stars Alan Arkin, Keanu Reeves, Maria Bello, Winona Ryder, Julianne Moore and Blake Lively. Read FilmJabber’s […]

Cold Souls Movie Review

Paul Giamatti has sold his soul. Not to the Devil, mind you, but to a corporation. He hasn’t actually sold it, either, but it has been stolen and sold on the Russian black market. This is the premise for Cold Souls, an imaginative though anticlimactic comedy-drama from director Sophie Barthes. Read FilmJabber’s full Cold Souls […]

The September Issue Movie Review

Those outside the fashion industry may not know her name, but Meryl Streep played a deliciously cold character loosely based on Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in The Devil Wears Prada. In The September Issue, a documentary by filmmaker R.J. Cutler, the real Wintour is examined and the work that goes into the most important fashion […]

The Stepfather Movie Review

Having never gone through the experience of having a stepfather, the likelihood of “my new dad” being a psychotic serial killer is rather low, but the possibility in general is intriguing. Of course, The Stepfather, about an obsessive guy who infiltrates families in search of the perfect family, isn’t a psychological thriller – it isn’t […]

Shutter Island Movie Review

The number is 26. That’s the amount of Oscar nominations the last three major films Martin Scorsese directed – which all starred Leonardo DiCaprio – earned. The movies also collected approximately $700 million worldwide. Needless to say, the Scorsese/DiCaprio combination has been a critical and financial powerhouse, which makes the prospect of a horror-thriller such […]
