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 […]

Kristin Kreuk is Hot, Street Fighter is Not

There’s bad, and then there’s Street Fighter bad. And what’s worse than a Street Fighter movie but an unnecessary, unwanted sequel fifteen years after the franchise’s heyday, starring a TV actress and lacking a plot? Yes, it’s Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. One has to think that 20th Century Fox had this absurd idea […]

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 […]
