Alice in Wonderland Movie Review

Friday was a good day, up until I left work. At 5 pm, I drove home, ate some food and did some dishes. At 8 pm, I finished watching the Disney movie Old Dogs, which was painfully bad. At 10 pm, I sat down in a sparsely populated theater to watch Tim Burton’s new movie […]

(500) Days of Summer: The Best Romantic Comedy in Years?

I saw (500) Days of Summer last night with a friend, and here’s my movie review for the film: The romantic comedy: Boys meets girl. Boy gets in argument with girl. Boy reunites with girl. Movie ends. Every movie is the same, only with different characters and a slightly modified hook. Some are better than […]

Homecoming Movie Review

Mischa Barton left The O.C. at the end of season three, perhaps a wise move considering the once-popular television series was fading quickly at that point. But even though she got out just in time, Barton has yet to make a name for herself as anyone but Marissa Cooper. Her latest film, the limited release […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review

The time is near, that when the Harry Potter franchise delivers its final whisk of the wand. The tension is starting to build, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth entry in the blockbuster franchise, is a key indicator of how the story of Harry, Ron and Hermione will end. David Yates, who […]

Movie Review: Star Trek (2009)

It only took two weeks of summer to get to the good stuff, as J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek for non-Trekkies has arrived, and it is quite a spectacle. Exciting action and an entertaining, swift screenplay are capped by stunning visual effects in what can only be described as the first blockbuster Star Trek of the […]

DVD Review: Caprica Pilot Episode

Battlestar Galactica is done, but Caprica is just beginning. Sci-Fi Channel hopes fans acknowledge that transition and stick around because one is just like the other, right? Oh, and for the fact that the channel doesn’t have much else to offer. Caprica is set 50 years before BSG on Caprica, which in only a few […]

TV Show Review: Patrick Swayze is The Beast

The Shield is gone, leaving the airways devoid of gritty, gray-and-grayer police drama. Michael Chiklis was a complete badass, and over the course of seven amazing seasons, the writers carved an amazingly complex, suspenseful and believable tale of crime, corruption and tragedy. The last season, especially, was a masterstroke. And only a few months later, […]

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 […]

The Red Violin: The Meridian Collection DVD Review

It had been almost ten years since I watched The Red Violin, a touching and engaging drama where the main character is… a violin. No, it’s not just any violin, but an extremely rare violin fashioned to perfection, painted red and a survivor of several centuries worth of owners. The movie, directed and co-written by […]

Is Indiana Jones 4 a Disappointment?

I just got back from a Thursday-night showing of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and it is not everything I wanted and more. I liked it – it was entertaining enough – but there are some moments in the movie that really push your acceptance as an Indy fan. Read my […]

A Review of the National Treasure 2 DVD

Nicolas Cage and Diane Kruger return to the adventure franchise National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets, a ludicrous, over-the-top but overall rather entertaining action-comedy. As people know, I feel the franchise – I call it a franchise because there is no denying that a third one will find its way to theaters at some point […]

New Indiana Jones Review – The Adventure Collection

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull arrives in theaters on May 22nd, and shockingly, Paramount is releasing a new DVD set of the original Indiana Jones trilogy this Tuesday, May 13th. I mean, I am flabbergasted that Paramount would release a new DVD set so close to the release of their new […]

When Vaginas Attack: Two Teeth Movie Reviews

Ah, there’s nothing like a toothy vagina. Especially one that bites off anything that disturbs it. Such is the premise for Teeth, the new horror-comedy out on DVD that stars Jess Weixler as a sexy but naively innocent abstinence poster child who discovers that she’s not the same as other girls. She may look the […]

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 […]
