DVD Review: The Aristocats Special Edition

The Aristocats arrived on DVD in February. I was supposed to review it in February. I didn’t. It’s now March, and I finally got to the film. As much as I could watch anyway. I don’t believe that, even in my childhood, I ever saw The Aristocats, and as such, my childhood sentiment for the […]

Horrorfest 2007 Movie Review: Lake Dead

Beautiful girls in little or no clothing get raped and murdered in Lake Dead, a B-grade crapfest version of The Hills Have Eyes meets The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. One of 2007′s Horrorfest films, Lake Dead has its moments, but most are uninentional. Lake Dead follows three beautiful sisters who have just learned that they have […]

No Country for Old Men Stripped Of Best Picture Oscar

… or that’s what should happen. I liked No Country for Old Men, which comes to DVD this Tuesday. At the time I saw it in theaters, I thought it was a strong contender for Best Picture. Despite a lackluster ending, the movie is dark, meaningful and well conceived, with all elements working together in […]

Is the American Gangster DVD Worth the Money?

American Gangster, the well-received cop/gangster movie starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, is now out on DVD. The movie is pretty good, though I’d say it’s a bit overrated. The pacing could have been a little better, and American Gangster definitely doesn’t compare to any Scorcese gangster flick (and it has been compared to those […]

Is The Bucket List (2007) as Bad as Movie Critics Say?

I just watched The Bucket List, nearly two months after it was originally released in theaters. The Jack Nicholson/Morgan Freeman death comedy didn’t get very good reviews – only 42% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes – and as such as I had relegated to this to the rental pile. However, on a cold Saturday night, one […]

DVD Review: Lake Placid 2 Unrated

Why do I subject myself to watching movies like this? Lake Placid 2: Unrated, a direct-to-DVD horror movie release, was just asking to be bad, and guess what? It is bad. Really bad. I have to admit that I sort of liked the original Lake Placid, starring Bill Pullman. It was cheesy and not the […]

Best Movies of 2007 List Updated!

Just so everyone knows, I updated my Top Ten Movies of 2007 List. I forgot to put Once on the list, and if you’ve seen Once, you know that’s a movie that deserves to be recognized. The movie, about a street musician and an immigrant who strike up a relationship to work on producing an […]

Movie Review: Cloverfield (2008)

The anticipation is over, and the J.J. Abrams-produced movie Cloverfield is now in theaters. After one of the most impressive marketing campaigns ever performed by a major motion picture studio, expectations were high, the buzz extraordinarily high. Cloverfield was pretty much asking to be a disappointment, but it is not to be. Cloverfield pretty much […]

Sci-Fi Channel’s Mammoth DVD Really Sucks

Mammoth came out on DVD on January 8, 2008, but I had to wait to watch this one with my mom. You see, I’m not a big fan of direct-to-DVD or TV movies, especially ones like Mammoth which are pretty much guaranteed to be lousy. My mom, on the other hand, loves these kinds of […]

Juno (2007) Movie Review – Can Ellen Page Win an Oscar?

It’s been a year of great comedies (Knocked Up, Superbad, Hot Fuzz), and 2007 ended with a bang in the form of Juno (2007). Juno, about a 16-year old girl who gets knocked up by one of her friends and decides to keep the baby to term and then give it to a seemingly perfect […]

Zodiac Director’s Cut: A Whopping Four Minutes Longer

Zodiac, one of the best movies of 2007, is the latest David Fincher masterpiece, a serial killer film completely unlike Se7en it’s completely inappropriate to compare the two. Zodiac is over two and a half hours long, and yet it is suspenseful and intriguing from beginning to end. Wonderfully directed and edited, the movie flows […]

New Movie Reviews, and More Coming Soon

Due to the launch of FilmJabber, updates to the database have been relatively sparse, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been seeing movies. December is always the best time for movies, as this is when a good chunk of the award powerhouses come out. 2007 was a great year for movies, and December was more […]

Which Rush Hour Movie is the Best?

I recently got my hands on Rush Hour 3, a movie I normally would have seen in theaters had it not looked a bit dull at the time. A relatively big fan of the first two Rush Hour movies, I’ve found the franchise to be entertaining, even though I have been thoroughly frustrated with the […]

DVD Review: The Heartbreak Kid – Unfunniest Movie of 2007

Wow. I just watched The Heartbreak Kid, starring Ben Stiller and directed by the Farrelly brothers, and it is one disaster of a film. Could The Heartbreak Kid be the unfunniest movie of 2007? I think it’s quite possible. There have been less entertaining films this year, but The Heartbreak Kid is the most mainstream […]

Is Braveheart Special Collector’s Edition DVD worth the money?

A new DVD edition of Braveheart comes to stores this Tuesday, December 18th, and with it comes some supposedly new special features that fans of the film might be interested in. From what I could find on Amazon.com, at least some of the special features haven’t been done before, though I can’t say for sure. […]
