DVD Review: Seven Pounds, Starring Will Smith

Will Smith is one of the most consistent box office forces there is. Even his intentionally misspelled 2007 drama The Pursuit of Happyness went on to make well over $100 million in the United States. So, the odds were good that his 2008 follow-up Seven Pounds, which is directed by the same man, Gabriele Muccino, […]

The Haunting in Connecticut Movie Review

At some point in our lives, we all reach a split in the road. These are the decisions that shape us, that define our futures. I reached such a split tonight. On the one side of the gaping four-story mall promenade, a line for a free screening of Adventureland. On the other, The Haunting in […]

Movie Review: Marley & Me, Now on DVD

Owen Wilson + Jennifer Aniston + cute dog = blockbuster. Marley & Me comes to DVD on March 31, allowing people like me who passed on the film during its theatrical run to take a peek at the surprisingly heartwarming dog film. Marley & Me is not at all what I expected. Based on the […]

DVD Review: Slumdog Millionairre

The Best Picture of 2008, at least according to some unnamed Academy, arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 31, 2009 – and is sure to be as big of a hit as it was in theaters. While I would argue that Fox’s decision to release Slumdog Millionaire on DVD while it is still going […]

DVD Review: The Odd Couple Centennial Collection DVD

One of the greatest – or oddest – on-screen couples of all time returns to DVD in a Centennial Collection edition. Yes, it’s Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, and they are The Odd Couple. In The Odd Couple, Lemmon plays Felix Ungar, a man who just been kicked by his wife. Left to fend for […]

DVD Review: Quantum of Solace DVD

The hit James Bond action flick Quantum of Solace speeds its way onto DVD and Blu-Ray this coming Tuesday, March 24, 2009 in a two-disc special edition. The follow-up to the immensely popular reboot Casino Royale finds us with a new director, an angrier Bond and of course a new set of Bond girls, and […]

Happy-Go-Lucky Movie Review

I like depressing movies. I really like depressing movies. So when I saw the preview for Happy-Go-Lucky, a movie about an overly bubbly woman who goes around being – well – bubbly, I balked. The movie looked annoying, stupid and boring. But, I can be wrong sometimes. It’s a rare occurrence, but I can be […]

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Movie Review

Nazi movies were popular among filmmakers in the latter half of 2008, but several flew in under the radar. One such film was The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, a movie that is not a biopic about Michael Jackson but about two young boys who become friends, despite one being the son of a soldier […]

Role Models Unrated Edition DVD Review

If you missed Role Models in theaters… what the hell is wrong with you? The Paul Rudd/Seann William Scott comedy is one of the funniest of 2008, as long as you like Judd Apatow kind of humor. Apatow, by the way, is not involved in this movie, but McLovin’ from Superbad is. Oh, and Elizabeth […]

DVD Review: Primal Fear Hard Evidence Edition

Primal Fear is one of the best courtroom dramas in the history of cinema. Not only does it feature great performances by Richard Gere and Laura Linney, but it also marks the debut of a talented young man named Edward Norton – some of you may know him. His startling performance earned him an Oscar […]

Movie Review: Oscar-Nominated New Boy

The 2009 Academy Awards debut next Sunday, and with it awards for all those short movies that no one has ever seen or heard about. One such live-action short nominated for an Oscar is New Boy, Ireland’s 11-minute entry written and directed by Steph Green. I normally don’t review short films, yet at the same […]

DVD Review of Choke

Choke arrives on DVD on Tuesday, February 17. Though the movie is from writer Chuck Palahnuik, who is best known for Fight Club, this movie isn’t anything that classic, and as such, fans may be disappointed. Nevertheless, for what it is, it works, offering some entertaining dark comedy about sex addicts and a delusional mother. […]

Atheists Rejoice: Religulous is Coming to DVD

Loyal readers should know that I’m an atheist. And as an atheist, I’m a big fan of Bill Maher’s documentary Religulous. It’s not that I think the movie is an incredible documentary that will convert believers – after all, believers wouldn’t come within ten feet of this movie – but it makes some pretty valid […]

Friday the 13th Movie Reviews

The new Friday the 13th movie comes to theaters this Friday, just in time for Valentine’s Day. From the director of the surprisingly good Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, the movie is destined to be the best of the franchise, even if by default. After all, let’s face it: the Friday the 13th series is terrible. […]

Frozen River Movie Review & Giveaway

Frozen River is one of those movies that you may not have heard of until Oscar nominations were announced, and that left you wondering how you could see such an acclaimed film that had long since left theaters. Thankfully, Frozen River is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray… I watched the movie over the weekend, […]
