How to Train Your Dragon Movie Review

This summer, I watched Toy Story 3 and called it “an all-but-assured lock for Best Animated Picture of the Year.” At the time, I hadn’t watched How to Train Your Dragon on account that the previews made it look like an uninteresting, stupid, early-year animated kid’s film (the horrible Olympics advertisements didn’t help, either). Having […]

The Human Centipede Movie Review

There are disturbing movies, and then there are really disturbing movies. The Human Centipede (First Sequence), as the title suggests, falls into the latter category. About a mad scientist who decides to sew three innocent people together (mouth to rectum, to be specific), The Human Centipede is strangely alluring – in a very screwed up […]

The Disappearance of Alice Creed Movie Review

The low budget indie thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed comes to DVD next Tuesday. The movie, which stars Gemma Arterton, Martin Compston Eddie Marsan and no one else, is about a young woman who is kidnapped by two masked men and locked in a small room for ransom. But as is often the case, […]

Made in Dagenham Movie Review

A well-executed film with a great British cast, Made in Dagenham tells the story of a group of female Ford factory workers who went on strike to gain equal pay for women and in the process brought England’s industry to its knees.  Sally Hawkins is excellent as the lead protester Rita O’Grady.  While I don’t […]

Jonah Hex Movie Review

There was a [brief] time in American history where people would say it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter how bad the movie is. It had Megan Fox in it, and she plays a prostitute and wears a corset. It doesn’t matter how bad the movie is, it’s worth watching. That time in American history lasted […]

Four Lions Movie Review

Surely to be one of the more controversial movies of the year, especially in this Tea Party-led society we suddenly live in, Four Lions is about four British Muslims who, disillusioned with the western world, decide they’re going to wage jihad against their country. In other words, they’re going to blow some sh*t up. Oh, […]

Morning Glory Movie Review

From director Roger Michell (Venus, Notting Hill) and writer Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) comes Morning Glory, a funny, witty behind-the-scenes look into all the glory and ugliness of early morning TV.  Rachel McAdams stars as a rising TV producer, who, after being laid off from her job, begins work at […]

Paranormal Activity 2 Movie Review

Truly scary movies come along only once every several years. Or two years in a row, if you allowed last year’s surprise blockbuster Paranormal Activity to get under your skin. Given that the low-budget horror movie went on to become the most profitable movie of all time (and also appeared on numerous “scariest movies” lists), […]

Due Date Movie Review

It’s a recipe for success. Todd Philips, director of Old School and The Hangover, reunites with star Zach Galifianakis for a road trip film that also features A-lister Robert Downey, Jr. Previews suggest Due Date is the next It-comedy, a sleeper hit to roll through the holiday season. But sometimes recipes end in disaster. Read […]

127 Hours Movie Review

The Oscar race just got a little more crowded as Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours enters the mix. An energetic, beautifully shot and superbly acted film based on the harrowing true story of Aaron Ralston, a devil-may-care adventurer who finds himself alone and trapped in an isolated canyon in Utah. His hand pinned between a rock […]

Jack Goes Boating Movie Review

Philip Seymour Hoffman makes his directorial debut with Jack Goes Boating and, fittingly, the movie gives the celebrated but frumpy actor the rare opportunity to star in a romantic comedy. The movie, while not perfect, is one of the most heartwarming and emotionally charged romances of the year. Read FilmJabber’s full Jack Goes Boating movie […]

Leaves of Grass Movie Review

What’s better than one Edward Norton in a movie? Two of him! In the dark comedy/crime thriller Leaves of Grass, Edward Norton stars alongside Edward Norton in Leaves of Grass, about a collegiate professor and his white trash, drug dealing identical brother who get mixed up in some bad things. In addition to Norton, the […]

Movie Flashback: The Third Man

The Oscar-winning thriller The Third Man was recently released to Blu-Ray for the first time. It was also my first viewing of the classic, which won an Oscar for Best Cinematography, was nominated for Best Director and Best Editing and is currently ranked #57 on AFI’s Top 100 Movies and #75 on AFI’s Top Thrillers.

Movie Review: The Social Network

Facebook. Love it or hate it, people are using it. The social networking website has 500 million users and counting, and for many it has become a way of life, a way to stay connected to friends and family across the country and around the world, especially the ones you don’t like enough to actually […]
