Sex and the City, a Straight Man’s View

It’s been a couple weeks since Sex and the City made its way to theaters, raking in a whole ton of money. I got invited to see the movie opening night, but opted not to stay up to 3am with a bunch of weeping, screaming women. Part of the reason, I’ll admit, is that I […]

Funny Games Movie Review

I’ve posted a movie review for the 2008 remake Funny Games, starring Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Michael Pitt. The movie is directed by Michael Haneke, who also directed the original Austrian version ten years earlier. Anyone know why he decided to remake his own movie? I don’t know. Even worse, the movie is a […]

Young People Fucking Movie Review

Review by Robert Bell (A-) Featuring clever and natural dialogue that is anchored by uniformly impressive performances from the young (mostly) Canadian cast, Young People F*cking is a refreshingly real sex comedy sure to be a cult favourite with many. What makes YPF stand out from the endless parade of soulless sex romps are the […]

Control Movie Review – Now on DVD

Check out my Control movie review, which I just posted online last night. The movie is about Ian Curtis, the lead singer of the 1970’s rock band Joy Division. The movie arrives on DVD today, June 3, 2008. Filmed in black and white (well, actually, color and then converted to B&W) – Control is pretty […]

Speed Racer Speeds to Victory/Defeat: Movie Review!

Speed Racer is almost upon us, whether you like it or not. I, personally, am going to see it just to make sure it’s as bad as it looks. My friends feel the same way (though many won’t even go see it). Others, however, are actually looking forward to this Wachowski Brothers film, so it […]

Iron Man: The Best Movie of the Summer… So Far

I just got back from Iron Man (a 10:15 Thursday showing), and it was pretty cool. Here’s my full Iron Man movie review. And, I can easily say, Iron Man is the best movie of the 2008 summer season. Yes, I know it’s 1am on May 2nd and no other summer movie has reached theaters […]

Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead DVD Review

Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead was released on DVD on April 15th, so I’m a few days behind on my DVD review. The movie, as you probably don’t know, is about two brothers (Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke) who, after some rough times, decide to commit an armed robbery. Their target of choice? […]

Second 21 Movie Review + 21 Weekend Box Office

Have you ever gone to a movie theater by yourself? I don’t know about you, but I feel a bit like a loser when I do. Very rarely will I go by myself, but I know what I think when I see some guy show up with his popcorn, sit down at the end of […]

DVD Review: Into the Wild (2007)

Sean Penn’s Into the Wild is now available on DVD in a 2-disc Collector’s Edition. While the movie is one of the better films of 2007 (I hesitate to say one of the year’s best), the DVD is lackluster by anyone’s definition. The second disc, which houses the special features, contains only two featurettes, one […]

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 […]

How Good is the Movie Jumper (2008)? (A Movie Review)

I just watched Jumper early this afternoon, despite it being a fabulous day outside. Relatively warm with few clouds in the sky, it was a great day to play in the park, go for a jog, or at least watch beautiful women jogging. Instead, I opted to go and sit with my male roommate in […]

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 […]

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 […]

Movie Review: Phenomena (1985)

This weekend, I flew down to Florida to visit my uncle. As my uncle had a tendency to like any kind of B-grade, C-grade, D-grade or even F-grade horror movies, we ended up watching one of those movies found on those “50 horror movie” DVD packs, which are typically a septic tank of movies no […]
