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 […]

Kevin Smith: 3-Movie Collection Blu-Ray Review

Kevin Smith. Not many directors have consistently delivered as many entertaining and hilarious films as he has, though he evokes a love-him-or-hate-him reaction from many (my mom shakes her head disapprovingly in his general direction). Let’s look at his movies: Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl, Clerks II […]

Bruno Blu-Ray Review: Just as Bad as the Movie

There are two camps: those who like Bruno and those who don’t. Those who like Bruno are wrong. And stupid-heads. Bruno is, by far, one of the worst movies I’ve seen in a long while. My friend and I almost walked out of the theater multiple times while watching this disaster, but didn’t because we […]

Blu-Ray Review: Say Anything 20th Anniversary Edition

The boombox is back! Say Anything, one of the quintessential romantic comedies of the 1980’s, is coming to Blu-Ray in an all-new 20th Anniversary Edition. Say Anything marks the directorial debut of Cameron Crowe and stars John Cusack as a young man named Lloyd Dobler, who’s one mission in life is to date Diane Court […]

A Serious Man (2009) Movie Review

Two years ago, their movie won Best Picture. Last year, their follow-up starred Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton and John Malkovich. This year, the Coen brothers’ latest film – A Serious Man – stars no big-name movies whatsoever. It’s also one of their funniest films yet. Read the rest of the A Serious Man […]

Spread (2009) DVD Movie Review

Ashton Kutcher may have four million followers on Twitter, but that alleged popularity didn’t transfer into box office dollars as his latest film, an R-rated sex drama titled Spread, garnered less than a million dollars, albeit in a very limited release. The movie, coming to DVD and Blu-Ray this Tuesday, is surprisingly decent, but “decent” […]
