Chaplin: 15th Anniversary DVD Review

For years, Robert Downey Jr. has been poison. Maybe not complete box office failure poison, but he was a name people immediately associated with drugs, career suicide and uncontrollable. Oh, how a couple of years of sobriety and a super hero can make a difference. Downey is at an all-time career high, and it isn’t […]

Cool Hand Luke Movie Review

I am young, by cinematic standards. I didn’t grow up in the 40’s and 50’s where the film industry was still, in many ways, relatively young. I haven’t had sixty years to watch movies and say with sincerity that dozens of films from the 1940’s are masterpieces. I do see old movies and appreciate them […]

Iron Man DVD Review: Two Discs of Goodness

Iron Man. The movie shocked audiences by raking in $100 million in its opening weekend and lots of critical praise. This, a movie about a guy who dresses up in a metal suit and goes around blowing things up. Who would have thought? The huge box office winner is coming to DVD this Tuesday, September […]

More Naked Women on Forgetting Sarah Marshall DVD

A movie that sort of flew under the radar earlier this year, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a romantic comedy that proved that it was a lot more than a fluff-and-kiss romantic comedy. In reality, it’s in the same vein as Knocked Up, as it’s a romantic comedy for guys – there’s swearing, boobs, crazy sex […]

The Godfather 4 Coming to Theaters!

Holy crap. This just in from a legitimate source: The Godfather 4 is coming to theaters sometime in 2010. Word has it that Francis Ford Coppola has already penned the script, and the movie is currently in the pre-production phase. It is rumored that Al Pacino will return, though the film will focus heavily on […]

Die-Hard Woody Allen Fan: Vicky Cristina Barcelona Review

If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been seeing a lot of movies lately. At least not at theaters. I have been making my rounds through the DVD racks, but with a lull in new releases worthy of my time, I haven’t been reviewing a whole lot. Even though the end of August and September are […]

Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Movie Reviews and Recap

Robert Bell, who shares his movie reviews on FilmJabber and who is also based in Toronto, somehow was admitted into the Toronto International Film Festival (known as TIFF) despite the chaos he caused last year. OK, he actually didn’t cause any commotion last year (that I know of), but regardless, he has weighed in on […]

Child’s Play 20th Birthday Edition DVD Review

I just finished watching Child’s Play, as the new Chucky’s 20th Birthday Edition arrives on DVD September 9th. While the franchise has digressed into more humorous, satirical stories over the years, it’s amazing to see just how creepy and gritty the original was. As everyone knows by now, Child’s Play is about a serial killer […]

Heroes: Season 2 DVD Review

Heroes: Season Three is almost here, which means Season Two is coming to DVD. The four-disc set contains the shortened, 11-episode season, complete with time traveling, viruses, wedding massacres and more. It’s no question that most Heroes fans will scoop this DVD set up despite what my Bible-like words say below, but what about those […]

Movie Review: The Scorpion King 2

With great reluctance, I offered to review The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior. A direct-to-DVD release, the action-thriller had very little going for it, but considering the fact that it’s “from the producers of The Mummy” and stars UFC champion Randy Couture, it had to be great, right? Wrong. The Scorpion King 2: […]

Lost Boys 2: The Tribe Movie Review

It’s been a long, long, long, long time since I saw the original Lost Boys, the Kiefer Sutherland/Corey Haim/Corey Feldman-starring vampire cult classic. I recall enjoying it and that it took place in Santa Clara, but considering that I was five when it was originally released, I never quite got on the Lost Boys bandwagon, […]

Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay Unrated DVD Review

My roommate and I were there on opening night to watch Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay in theaters. The movie, packed full of racist jokes and pokes at stereotypes (primarily against Indians/Arabs/Asians, with a few black jokes sprinkled in as well), was pretty funny, especially since the theater was 75% Indians and Asians, […]

Batman: Gotham Knights Movie Review

In anticipation of The Dark Knight this Thursday, I rented the direct-to-DVD movie Batman: Gotham Knights, which hit stores this last Tuesday. Thankfully, I used my Netflix account, because the movie certainly wasn’t worth the money. Batman: Gotham Knights is meant to bridge the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, so I assumed […]

Negative Dark Knight Movie Reviews?

77 hours. 77 hours until the lights will fade, the previews will begin, and the theater will roar as The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger and all, rolls onto the screen. Anticipation is high… in fact, amazingly high. In order to subdue my hype, however, I went searching for bad reviews, and, of course, went straight […]

Is The Happening the Worst Movie of 2008?

Wow. I finally watched The Happening last night, after over a week of listening to bad reviews and a warning from my brother that M. Night Shyamalan had inflicted upon audiences something worse than death. But the movie looked cool, and I was willing to look past the quasi-disappointing The Village and the downright bad […]
