DVD Review: Revolutionary Road (2008)

Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition) joined forces to make Revolutionary Road, a drama that flew under the radar in December 2008 and received lukewarm reviews from critics, despite being one of the best of the year. This emotional and shocking tale will be available on DVD this coming […]

The Best Animated Movie of 2009: Up

The wizards at Pixar have done it again. Up, their 2009 entry for Best Animated Film of the Year, is, undoubtedly, going to be the Best Animated Film of the Year. Funny, emotional, exciting and intelligent, this one will once again leave the teams at DreamWorks Animation and Fox Studios drinking away their nights in […]

DVD Review: Taken (2009)

First there was Paul Blart, and then there was Taken. It was only January 2009, and we had two major – and surprise – hits on our hands. I remember when I first watched the movie preview for Taken, the Liam Neeson-starring thriller that looks and feels a lot like a B-grade version of The […]

DVD Review: Tom Cruise’s Valkyrie (2008)

A lot of people shrugged off Valkyrie due to the presence of Tom Cruise, his American accent while portraying a German and the eye patch he wears throughout much of the picture. Then again, not that many people shrugged it off, as the Nazi film went on to make $200 million worldwide, proving that despite […]

Movie Review: Is Angels & Demons Worth It?

Many times, second chances are not an option, but in the case of Ron Howard and Tom Hanks, the two were granted an golden opportunity to make amends for the dismal thriller The Da Vinci Code, which was a box office hit but, understandably, a critical dud. A fan of the book, the movie was […]

Last Chance Harvey Movie Review

Dustin Hoffman hasn’t done much of note in recent years, but he storms his way back onto the scene in a big way with Last Chance Harvey, a touching, mesmerizing romantic drama that also stars Emma Thompson. Hoffman stars as the title character, a struggling ad musician who has traveled to London for his daughter’s […]

Hounddog Movie Review: Worth the Controversy?

Dakota Fanning headlines the controversial drama Hounddog, a movie best known for featuring a rape scene of the young actress. Directed by Deborah Kampmeier, Hounddog features strong acting and a good screenplay, but it fades in the end as it fails to get to the point. Hounddog is about a young girl named Lewellen (Fanning), […]

Donnie Darko Sequel: S. Darko DVD Review

There are many movies that have been released over the years where sequels make sense. That doesn’t mean they need sequels, but you can see how it’ll work. A sequel to Donnie Darko, however, never crossed my mind. Donnie Darko, one of the most unique, intriguing, mind-bending and debate-invigorating films of the 21st century, is […]

Weekend Box Office: Does Star Trek Win Again?

The answer is no, but not by much. Sony had to be a little nervous when looking at Saturday’s numbers (to get Sunday’s box office estimates), as Angelys & Demons polishes up with only $48 million, only $5 million ahead of near-repeat offender Star Trek. One can only presume that Sony’s estimates were $1-2 million […]

Wolverine Video Movie Review

Ah,Wolverine. Where does one begin? This movie was just plain awful, and the more I think about it, the more I hate it. It’s sad when such a movie exists that I would rather watch X-Men 3 ten times over before seeing this stinker again, and X-Men 3 was no walk in the park. X-Men […]

DVD Review: My Bloody Valentine 3D

My Bloody Valentine 3D comes to DVD this Tuesday, May 19, 2009, and I’ll just say: wait until the new Friday the 13th hits stores. When I saw the movie in theaters, I found it mildly amusing, if only for how bad it was and for the fact that it was in 3D. The movie […]

Star Trek Video Movie Review

I am finally venturing into the world of YouTube (the creation side, that is), so check out my first-ever video movie review below… I plan to get some better video editing software than Windows Movie Maker in the near future (am thinking Adobe Premiere, since I already know how to use it) and clearly need […]

Is IMAX Destroying Its Brand?

The last couple of years have been full of story’s about IMAX’s success. Ever since the theater chain, which was originally dedicated to documentaries filmed with clunky cameras, started showing “real” movies, its revenues have skyrocketed, and for good reason. People pay – and they do pay – a premium of up to $5 (more […]

Movies to See this Weekend, In Theaters on DVD

Summer hasn’t even officially started yet, but it feels like we’re in the heart of it. The third blockbuster arrives this weekend, but other than that, there aren’t many options for those of you already caught up. In theaters, there’s Angels & Demons, the sequel/prequel to The Da Vinci Code. To call it anticipated may […]

To Celebrity Apprentice: Bring Back The Apprentice

Celebrity Apprentice is a fun show, full of screaming celebrities and other shenanigans and Donald Trump. Many of the celebrities take the show seriously, or at least somewhat seriously, but some don’t… and that’s why I miss the original Apprentice, where real business people competed for a real job. After watching the season finale, I […]
