Movie Review: My Best Friend’s Girl

My Best Friend’s Girl arrives on DVD on January 13th, 2009. Here’s my movie review for the romantic comedy: Dane Cook continues his quest to prove he’s unfunny in My Best Friend’s Girl, a less-crude version of Good Luck Chuck with only a slightly altered premise. In the movie, Cook plays a guy named Tank, […]

Swing Vote (2008) Movie Review

Swing Vote will be released on DVD on January 13, 2009. Here is my Swing Vote movie review: Poor Kevin Costner. Once a box office star, he is now the anti-star, and for no real apparent reason. He’s an enjoyable actor, and if you look at his resume, he has far more good films than […]

Underworld/Underworld Revolution Double Feature DVD Review

Kate Beckinsale. Kate Beckinsale in tight, black leather. Kate Beckinsale sucking blood and making nooky with a hairy vampire. This stuff sells tickets, folks. The first Underworld is the perfect example of glitz over substance, but a fast-paced storyline, lots of action, R-rated gore and yes, Kate Beckinsale in black leather, made it a worthwhile […]

DVD Review: Jack Bauer Gets Trapped in Mirrors

Fox’s hit TV show 24 starts today, January 11th, so it’s no surprise that its main character, Jack Bauer, is getting three straight days of action. Two hours of 24 on Sunday, two more hours on Monday, and then, on Tuesday, Kiefer Sutherland’s horror movie Mirrors arrives on DVD. Mirrors is a creepy movie, for […]

Movie Review: My Blood Valentine Rips Out the Heart

This February, audiences will be greeted to an all-new 3D adventure in the form of My Bloody Valentine 3D, a remake of the 1981 horror film My Bloody Valentine, which is about a crazy miner who goes around murdering people. In anticipation of the new 3D film, it’s no surprise that Paramount and Lionsgate have […]

Does Audrey Hepburn Have a Funny Face?

In my continued case to see all things Audrey Hepburn, I popped Funny Face into my DVD player today. Thankfully, Paramount Pictures has been releasing Hepburn films over the last few months under its Centennial Edition banner, and Funny Face is the latest to be re-released. Having just watched Sabrina, Roman Holiday and, of course, […]

DVD Review: Pineapple Express Hits a High

The funny Judd Apatow action-comedy Pineapple Express arrives on DVD this Tuesday, and comes packed with more than just a dime bag of bonus features. Seth Rogen and James Franco star as two potheads who become involved in a murder plot, forcing them to go on the run and, eventually, to attack the drugdealers who […]

Frost/Nixon Not as Good as the Critics Claim

December is the month when the really good films come to theaters. It’s a known fact, because all of these movies want to be known and on voters’ minds when Oscar ballots go out in January. And while you can’t always trust the critics for 11 months out of the year when it comes to […]

DVD Review: Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.0

On January 16th, Battlestar Galactica returns with its final season, the end of a glorious run. BSG is easily one of the best sci-fi shows ever made, and one of the best dramas, too. It’s had its ups and downs, of course, but even it’s worst episode is better than the best episodes of some […]

DVD Review: Eagle Eye

Eagle Eye is the perfect B-grade thriller, a fast-paced, excited and well budgeted picture with quality acting and enough chaos to satisfy most fans. It is also ridiculous at times, forcing you to stretch your imagination far beyond what you expected. Still, if you accept that, the movie is pretty damn entertaining. The 2-Disc Special […]

DVD Review: Burn After Reading (2008)

Of all the films to be released in 2008, Burn After Reading is one of the more divisive of the group. Some people loved the movie, some hated it, and a few, like me, were somewhere in the middle. It’s definitely a picture of extremes, as the humor and rather aimless story went right over […]

Movie Review: Van Damme’s In Hell on DVD

I received a copy of In Hell in the mail this last week, as the 2003 direct-to-DVD Jean-Claude Van Damme is being re-released in a new limited edition. Why such a film deserves a re-release only a few years later is beyond me, but then again, it gave me the opportunity to watch this incredible, […]

Movie Review: Timecrimes/Los Cronocrímenes

I’ve just posted my movie review for Timecrimes, the Spanish time travel thriller about a man who sees a naked woman in the woods, goes to investigate, gets tricked into climbing into a machine and then, when he emerges, he finds that he has traveled back in time by a few hours. Told to stay […]

DVD Review: The Day the Earth Stood Still

A week from now, Jennifer Connelly and Keanu Reeves will storm onto theaters in the almost-expected remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. The 2008 version looks to be drastically different from the 1951 classic, but that might not be that bad of an idea.Smartly, 20th Century Fox is re-releasing the original in an […]

DVD Review: Prince Caspian DVD

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian rides onto DVD today, and with it a good chunk of bonus features. Prince Caspian moved the lucrative franchise out of its December time slot to May, where it stumbled mightily. A bit lost among bigger, more adult fare and lacking a major Christian holiday to play to churches, […]
