Adventureland DVD Not Full of Adventure

Those expecting Superbad things from director Greg Mottola’s follow-up comedy Adventureland may be disappointed. The R-rated drama-comedy, about a young man in the 1980’s who desperately takes a job at a trashy carnival and finds first love, is a well-made and engaging film, but it isn’t nearly as funny as Superbad, nor is it meant […]

New How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days DVD Loses

Paramount, in its never-ending battle (along with the other studios) to make money off of movies they’ve already released, is re-releasing How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 25, 2009. The movie, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson as two opposing forces each trying to break the […]

Second District 9 Movie Review

The best advice for anyone that is thinking about watching District 9 is to go into the film blind. While it’s been often said “knowing is only half the battle” (a G.I. Joe catchphrase nonetheless), the other side of the battle is, of course, not knowing. The more the audience knows about District 9 prior […]

District 9: As Good As They Say?

Late summer is typically dumping grounds for forgettable blockbuster wannabes and never-weres (see: G.I. Joe), but this August is a bit different. With A Perfect Getaway working surprisingly well last week and Inglorious Basterds coming soon, audiences have a variety of quality choices to choose from. But it’s District 9 that will likely emerge as […]

A Perfect Getaway Movie Review

By the time August rolls around, most of the big blockbusters have faded into the sunset and studios, desperate to ink out a few more dollars in the dog days of summer, start unleashing their B-round of films. These movies are generally worthless and forgettable, hardly worth the $10 price of admission. Going into A […]

Dance with Waltz with Bashir: A Movie Review

This has been the week of the war movie, as I’ve been stunned by not one but two great films in the last few days – and they couldn’t be any more different in their tone and approach.  The American-made The Hurt Locker was one of those movies, and the other is Waltz with Bashir, […]

Mutant Chronicles One of the Worst Movies of 2009

Why I do this to myself I have no idea. For you, my readers, I suppose. Or a deep-rooted sense to intellectually cut myself at every possible opportunity. My roommate and I sat down last night and for the next hour and a half submitted ourselves to every bad camera angle, shot, corny piece of […]

Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series DVD Review

It must be crazy to say that Battlestar Galactica is one of the best television series ever made, simply because I and so many other people have been repeating such a statement for years now. Why say a thing repetitively when almost everyone who you talk to believes you already? That, my friends, is insanity. […]

(500) Days of Summer: The Best Romantic Comedy in Years?

I saw (500) Days of Summer last night with a friend, and here’s my movie review for the film: The romantic comedy: Boys meets girl. Boy gets in argument with girl. Boy reunites with girl. Movie ends. Every movie is the same, only with different characters and a slightly modified hook. Some are better than […]

Two Lovers Movie Review: Joaquin Phoenix Burns Bright

Joaquin Phoenix. What comes to mind when you hear that name? Two-time Academy Award nominee?  Younger brother of River Phoenix? Or crazy, bearded rapper wannabe who embarrassed himself, either intentionally or not, on a variety of occasions over the last several months? Regardless, what he isn’t known for is his “final” movie Two Lovers, which […]

Playboy Bunnies Can’t Save Miss March

There are good movies, and there are bad ones. That’s a John Madden thing to say, but it’s true. Miss March, sad to say, falls clearly into the latter category, and doesn’t even appear to care. Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore wrote, directed and star in this road trip movie, about a guy who fell […]

DVD Review: Dollhouse: Season One (2009)

When Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse debuted in February, I was mildly intrigued to see what the man had come up with. I never watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer but was a huge fan of Firefly and its companion film Serenity, and so Whedon’s name alone was enough to get me to watch the premiere. The show […]

Homecoming Movie Review

Mischa Barton left The O.C. at the end of season three, perhaps a wise move considering the once-popular television series was fading quickly at that point. But even though she got out just in time, Barton has yet to make a name for herself as anyone but Marissa Cooper. Her latest film, the limited release […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review

The time is near, that when the Harry Potter franchise delivers its final whisk of the wand. The tension is starting to build, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth entry in the blockbuster franchise, is a key indicator of how the story of Harry, Ron and Hermione will end. David Yates, who […]

The Unborn Movie Review – Now on DVD!

Forget Megan Fox. Odette Yustman is the hottest young actress working today. In her follow-up to Cloverfield, in which she made a name for herself despite being in the movie for just a few minutes, she plays a young woman who is being haunted by her dead, unborn twin. That’s got to suck. Read the […]
