SIFF Movie Review: Patagonia

The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) is long over, but this just goes to show how busy I’ve been: between long work weeks, sports and multiple bachelor parties, movies have taken a back seat to things are “allegedly” more important. Still, I managed to get to two SIFF films out of its four-week run, the […]

True Blood: Season 3 Marketing Apology

The summer TV season heats up on Sunday with the season three premiere of True Blood, starring Anna Paquin. The 12-episode season is, according to Wikipedia, based on the third The Southern Vampire Mysteries novel Club Dead, which means nothing to me since I haven’t read any of the books. But the first two seasons […]

Poor People With Tough Decisions: X-Men Vs. Spider-Man

Many people face tough decisions in life, and I feel for them. I really do. Well, I don’t, but for argument’s sake, I do. And then there’s Michael Fassbender, who is facing a quandary of epic proportions. I mean, I can’t imagine what the man is going through right now, torn, divided and downright ravished. […]

Summer Movie Guide: 11 Movies to See in June 2010

Can you believe it’s already June? I can’t. Here in Seattle, the weather is still cloudy and cold, and the May movie season turned out to be a magnificent flop, with only Iron Man 2 being a worthy watch. Thankfully, June looks a bit better… but not that much better, as there are only two […]

The Wolfman Movie Review

I’m no math whiz (actually, I kind of am), but when a movie costs $125 to $150 million to make, and only makes $70 million in theaters, that means it lost money. A lot of money. And I’m no movie buff (OK, I definitely am), but when a movie gets bumped back from November 2008 […]

8: The Mormon Proposition Movie Review

America is a funny place these days. And by funny, I mean disappointing. While conservatives continue to fret about the degradation of American values in the economy and our way of life – citing liberty and freedom – they continue to restrict the freedom of their fellow citizens. Homosexuals are just the latest minority to […]

Micmacs Movie Review

Amazed by Amelie, yet underwhelmed by A Very Long Engagement, I really didn’t know quite what to expect with Micmacs, the third film I’ve seen from famed French director Jean Pierre Jeunet.  Sadly, Micmacs falls a bit short of both other films.  Micmacs follows the main character Bazil, who is taken in by an oddball […]

Guillermo Del Toro Backs Out of The Hobbit

Bad news for fans anticipating the upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit: director Guillermo Del Toro has quit the production and will not direct the two-part movie series. “In light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming The Hobbit, I am faced with the hardest decision of my […]

Why the New Nightmare on Elm Street Sucks

As someone who owns all eight Freddy Krueger movies, including the good, the bad and the ugly, I was looking forward to the rebooted version of A Nightmare on Elm Street with hesitant anticipation, well aware that while glossy and full of beautiful actors, it would have to get things just right to be a […]

The Spy Next Door Movie Review

Does anyone else miss the days of Rumble in the Bronx? Police Story? You know, when Jackie Chan could, or was, allowed to still do stunts? I thought so. Unfortunately, those days are long since passed, and now Jackie Chan movies are just lame hollow shells of something that can never be again. Read FilmJabber’s […]

Review: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Blu-Ray

Most of us remember where we were when the Writers Guild of America went on strike in 2007. I was sitting in a cafe reading the Wall Street Journal when the news came on television. Everyone stopped, turned and listened to the horrifying news. A woman ran outside screaming. Two children sitting at opposite ends […]

The Road DVD Review

Each awards season, some movies rise above expectations – even above their means – to achieve glory, and others fade from awareness almost immediately. Occasionally, there’s nothing wrong with these movies; they’re just released at the wrong time, promoted poorly or struck by fate. One such film is The Road, the Viggo Mortensen drama-thriller that […]

Holy Rollers Movie Review

Hasidic Jews and drug smuggling. It’s the natural, synergistic fit. It’s actually shocking that Hollywood waited this long to pair the two in this perfect union, but better late than never. Enter Holy Rollers, the Jessie Eisenberg-starring picture that is inspired by true events. Read FilmJabber’s full Holy Rollers movie review now.

Dear John DVD Movie Review

Men, watch out! Nicholas Sparks is back yet again, waiting to make two hours of your life a living hell. Yes, Dear John arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray on May 25, and with it comes more sappy melodrama designed to suck your soul dry. Even your woman may not find much to enjoy, though that’s […]

Google Trends Suggests No One Cares About Shrek 4

Shrek Forever After – the fourth Shrek movie – comes to theaters this Friday, and no one cares. After Shrek and Shrek 2 proved to be critical successes (Shrek 2 was better than the first one, in my opinion), DreamWorks spent the few years leading up to 2007 creating the atrocity that was Shrek the […]
