Ready, Set, Bag! Movie Review: Are You Packing?

We all have a competitive streak in us. Some take it out through traditional methods like baseball or football; others through dodgeball, sumo wrestling or mixed martial arts. And some pack grocery bags. If you’re unaware of the competitive sport of grocery bag packing, then you must have been living in a cave for your […]

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 […]

Trouble the Water Movie Review

A touching and at times disturbing documentary about Hurricane Katrina, Trouble the Water is an Oscar-nominated film that shows footage taken by citizens during and after the flooding of New Orleans. While the movie doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know, it does give a rare personal glimpse at the human toll, psychologically and […]

No Love for Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story

The economy. The economy. The economy. No subject is more talked about or important these days than the economy. So, it’s only natural that liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, having already taken on gun control, Republicans and universal healthcare, select the economy as the topic of his latest movie, the aptly titled Capitalism: A Love Story.

Food, Inc. Movie Review

Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, Food, Inc. provides a compelling look at the food industry and the consequences its actions have on American lifestyles.

The September Issue Movie Review

Those outside the fashion industry may not know her name, but Meryl Streep played a deliciously cold character loosely based on Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in The Devil Wears Prada. In The September Issue, a documentary by filmmaker R.J. Cutler, the real Wintour is examined and the work that goes into the most important fashion […]

Ecuador vs. Chevron: A Crude Movie Review

Each year, there are documentaries of all kinds: funny, emotionally personal, political, anti-business, environmental and more. The few that really hit home, however, are the ones that reveal massive tragedies few in the United States know about. Crude is one of those documentaries. Read FilmJabber’s full Crude movie review.

Dear Zachary: The Best Documentary of the 21st Century?

There are entertaining documentaries, like Man on Wire. There are political documentaries, such as Nothing But the Truth. And then there are those utterly depressing documentaries that only come along once every couple of years. Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father is one of those films. Filmmaker Kurt Kuenne made this […]

Expelled Doesn’t Flop, Unfortunately

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed unfortunately didn’t completely flop over the weekend, as the documentary earned $1.2 million on Friday for an estimated weekend box office gross of $3.7 million (according to Box Office Prophets). Why did I want Expelled to flop? The Ben Stein documentary is apparently about allowing the teaching of intelligent design (i.e. […]
