12 Rounds Movie Review (Now on DVD)

One would think that after The Marine Hollywood would have decided that John Cena wasn’t cut out for movies, but the professional wrestler is back, this time to save his wife from the hands of an evil mastermind, in 12 Rounds. If that sounds like the plot of The Marine only more absurd, you’re not […]

Now on DVD: Dark Streets Movie Review

When I saw the previews for Dark Streets, I was intrigued. It looked like a darker Moulin Rouge meets Chicago, a smoky musical thriller set in the underworld of New Orleans. Unfortunately, reality is often much less exciting. Dark Streets stars Gabriel Mann as Chaz, a playboy and nightclub owner who finds his life spinning […]

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Movie Review

John Travolta knows how to play memorable villains. He was intense in Face/Off, entertaining in Broken Arrow and mind blowing in Battlefield Earth. Just joking about that last one, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be excited to see the crafty Scientologist back on the dark side – and squaring off against his most worth […]

Harrison Ford’s Crossing Over Movie Review

Oh, how far has Harrison Ford fallen? Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was supposed to resurrect his career, but instead it just seemed to reaffirm people’s suspicions that he is a bit of a has-been, a man whose best movies are behind him. Personally, I believe he still has a few […]

Confessions of a Shopaholic DVD Review

Confessions of a Shopaholic comes to DVD next Tuesday, June 23, 2009. The movie is a hate it or dislike it kind of movie, not particularly terrible as it is, ultimately, unoriginal and cliche. Those that did like the film will find little to enjoy on the DVD, as the picture contains an embarassingly small […]

JCVD Movie Review: A Good Jean-Claude Van-Damme Movie?

When I think about guys who have comeback potential, I think Harrison Ford or Kevin Costner. I’d never even considered that Jean-Claude Van Damme was capable of such a designation, but here is JCVD, a self-satirical crime drama-thriller that defies genre and is actually pretty good. Yes, a pretty good Jean-Claude Van Damme movie. When […]

Fired Up Movie Review: Cheerleader Movie for Men

A movie that received little fanfare when it was released earlier this year, Fired Up looked like a cliché teen comedy in almost every way. A rip-off of Bring It On most people assumed. And yet, Fired Up is a surprisingly funny comedy that is a lot like Bring It On, except that it is […]

Drag Me to Hell Movie Review

Sam Raimi returns to the genre that put him on the map thirty years ago: the horror genre. Though now best known as the director of the Spider-Man trilogy, he has a special place in horror aficionado’s hearts for the dark-but-funny Evil Dead trilogy. And now, we get Drag Me to Hell, a hilarious throwback […]

The Hangover Movie Review + Repeat Box Office Winner

The Hangover repeated its dominance at the box office this weekend, taking in another $33.4 million; the R-rated comedy is now on pace to rake in approximately $175 million, against a budget of $25-$35 million. The people behind Land of the Lost (biggest flop of the year?) and Terminator Salvation are shaking their heads in […]

Nobel Son Movie Review

Alan Rickman, Bryan Greenberg, Shawn Hatosy, Mary Steenburgen, Bill Pulman, Eliza Dushku and Danny DeVito star in the edgy crime thriller Nobel Son, a surprisingly effective and twisting movie. In Nobel Son, Rickman plays an obnoxiously cocky professor who has just been selected to receive the Nobel Prize. On the eve of the award ceremony, […]

Moon Movie Review, Starring Sam Rockwell

Moon, Duncan Jones’ directorial feature, is a rare sci-fi film in the vein of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Outland and Silent Running.  With an almost throwback, vintage set design and visuals, Moon chooses to focus almost entirely on the psychological aspects of living in space alone.  Sam Rockwell, perhaps one of only a few current […]

Fanboys Movie Review

The long-delayed and much anticipated Fanboys came to theaters earlier this year with little fanfare and promotion, confirming what was long suspected: it just isn’t that good. Now on DVD, more people have the chance to view mediocrity at its finest. Fanboys stars Sam Huntington, Chris Marquette, Dan Fogler and Jay Baruchel as four friends […]

More Friday the 13th DVD Reviews

Paramount Home Video has unleashed another wave of terror upon us by re-releasing three more Friday the 13th movies on DVD, thus confirming that Paramount is, indeed, trying to get everyone in the world to commit suicide simultaneously. This awful franchise only gets worse as it goes along, as The Final Chapter and A New […]

DVD Review: Defiance (2008)

Defiance was one of those odd films that the studio clearly had no idea what to do with. Despite starring Daniel Craig, hot off the biggest James Bond opening in franchise history, and featuring an established director in Edward Zwick, the WWII action film opened on limited screens and faded into obscurity before it had […]

DVD Review: Revolutionary Road (2008)

Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition) joined forces to make Revolutionary Road, a drama that flew under the radar in December 2008 and received lukewarm reviews from critics, despite being one of the best of the year. This emotional and shocking tale will be available on DVD this coming […]
