Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009) DVD Movie Review

Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams and the gang are back in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, a sequel to the hit family comedy. Unfortunately, this time around, much of the magic has been lost. View this Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian movie review at its original location – […]

Paper Heart (2009) DVD Movie Review

In the faux documentary Paper Heart, comedian Charlyne Yi travels around the country in quest of the one thing that has eluded her young life thus far: love. Along the way, she meets and falls for actor Michael Cera, but the presence of cameras 24/7 threaten to destroy their relationship – and the movie. View […]

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) Movie Review

Nicolas Cage is a man who loves to act. He loves to act so much that he’ll sign up for anything that has been put to writing, generally without reading it first. This utter enthusiasm to be on the screen has resulted in such disasters as Bangkok Dangerous, Ghost Rider and The Wicker Man. But […]

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009) Movie Review

Currently a frontrunner for Best Picture, the ridiculously over-titled Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, is one of the most brutal movies I’ve ever sat through. It’s also one of the most satisfying films of the year. View this Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire movie review at its original location […]

Twilight Saga: New Moon, The (2009) Movie Review

I am a straight, 27-year old man, and I have read all four “Twilight” books. I read them because a friend gave them to me and said they were good. They were easy enough reads, even if Bella is one of the most horrible protagonists ever put to paper and the series twists and skewers […]

Fix (2009) Movie Review

In Fix, documentary filmmakers Bella (Olivia Wilde) and Milo (Tao Ruspoli) set out to retrieve Milo’s brother Leo (Shawn Andrews) from jail and deliver him to rehab by 8pm – otherwise Leo will go to jail. Allegedly inspired by a true story, Fix is an adventure from the mansions of Beverly Hills to the slums […]

Funny People (2009) DVD Movie Review

In just a few short years, Judd Apatow’s name has become synonymous with quality comedy as he’s been behind many of the best comedies in recent years, including The 40-Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Pineapple Express, among others. So when his third directorial feature (yes, only his third) was announced […]

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: A Very Sunny Christmas Review

Mac, Charlie, Dennis, Dee and Frank head straight to DVD and Blu-Ray with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: A Very Sunny Christmas, a mildly funny, 45-minute incarnation of the off-color FX television series. Now available in stores, A Very Sunny Christmas has the irreverent characters realizing that their holiday traditions are based on false assumptions […]

Rocky: The Undisputed Collection Blu-Ray Review

A little over a month ago, I decided it was time to go on a Rocky marathon. I’d seen the first one several times, but had amazingly never seen the second, third, fourth or fifth ones (I did see Rocky Balboa in theaters), so I added those films to my Netflix list. One by one, […]

Fantastic Mr. Fox, The (2009) Movie Review

Easily one of the most unique and memorable movies of 2009, <i>The Fantastic Mr. Fox</i> is funny, clever and Wes Anderson’s best movie in years. Forget <i>A Christmas Carol</i>. Featuring an all-star cast that includes George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Michael Gambon and Owen Wilson, <i>The Fantastic Mr. Fox</i> is the family […]

Pirate Radio (2009) Movie Review

While hordes of young girls swarmed in and out of theaters showing Twilight: New Moon last night, I forced my friends to go to the star-studded comedy Pirate Radio, about a group of disc jockeys on a ship off the coast of England who broadcasted “illegal” rock ‘n roll music during the 1960′s. In other […]

Broken Embraces (2009) Movie Review

The newest film from acclaimed director Pedro Almodovar, Broken Embraces, starring Penelope Cruz and Lluis Homar, delivers visually, but falls short of the mastery of story present in Almodovar’s best films (i.e. Talk to Her).  The film is about a famous film director, Mateo Blanco (AKA Harry Caine), who in a car accident loses both […]

Stephen Sommers Apologies for G.I. Joe

Hi, my name is Stephen Sommers and I’m the director of the drama called G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. I’ve been making movies since 1989, and in that time my goal has been to win an Oscar for Best Director. Or win a Razzie. I have yet to win either because Hollywood just doesn’t understand […]

Red Cliff (2009) Movie Review

It’s been six years since we last heard from John Woo, and even longer since he directed a good movie. For a short while, Woo was my favorite action director – that is, until he made Windtalkers. Oh, and Paycheck. Jesus, Paycheck. But Woo is back with an all-Chinese, all-battle epic called Red Cliff (Chi […]

Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

First rule about Fight Club: Talk about Fight Club. Brad Pitt and Ed Norton return to the small screen in a 10th Anniversary Edition of the cult classic Fight Club, which is directed by David Fincher. This is the first time the infamous film has been released on Blu-Ray. While I’m not as huge of […]
