9 Movies to Watch in September 2010

Summer is over, and kids are back to school. You know what that means: the studios are going to dump a lot of garbage on audiences this month. We’re being subjected to yet another Resident Evil movie, even though the third one was terrible, and Alpha and Omega looks like one of the worst cartoons […]

Summer Movie Guide: 10 Movies to See in August 2010

The summer movie season is fading. It is, after all, August.  Unfortunately, the bad movies (G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) far outweigh the good (The Sixth Sense) in this miserable month as studios drop the projects they at one point thought were worthy of greatness but have pretty much acknowledged most audiences would rather take […]

Steve Carell: The Good and the Not-So-Good

Actor Steve Carell has been solid even when scripts faltered – which has not been that often. Whether as the lead actor or as a supporting cast member, Steve Carell brings a quality to the screen that is hard to find among comedic-based actors – he brings a sincerity that defies the situation regardless of […]

Reel Life? Or Just a Dream…Inception and the Top Ten Dream Movies

As Inception plows through its second weekend of box office glory, Christopher Nolan’s lucid thriller is simultaneously solidifying its legacy as a classic of contemporary cinema.  From the early days of film making (dare I say, since its inception?), theorists have speculated about the dreamlike nature of the cinematic experience and movies have perpetually tried […]

The Career of M. Night Shyamalan: To Love or Hate

More divisive than the Health-Care debate, more controversial than immigration reform, more polarizing than the red state/blue state divide is…the relationship moviegoers have with M. Night Shyamalan. Few filmmakers in history provoke such strong emotions by the mere mention of their name – go ahead, try it, ask anyone what their thoughts are on Shyamalan […]

Summer Movie Guide: 9 Movies to See in July

Two summer movie months down, two disappointing months in the bag. There have been a couple bona fide hits, a few good movies, but so far this summer has been a bit of a bust – with little to get excited for or show up at the movie theater three hours in advance so you […]

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 […]

Summer Movie Guide: May 2010 Movies to Watch, and Skip

The summer movie season is only days away, which means it’s time for every movie website on the planet to come out with their summer movie guides. But you’re not going to waste time on those other sites, right? We’ve got everything you need to know about 2010’s summer movies right here at FilmJabber, starting […]

The Funniest Movies of 2009

Comedy, typically, is my least favorite genre, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good, funny movie. The problem in 2009 was that there just weren’t very many funny movies. The Hangover was great, but the funniest movie of the year? Yes, in 2009. In other years… maybe not. And dramedies like Away We […]

The Worst Movies of 2009

It’s not always simple to narrow down the worst movies of any given year as, hopefully, one has enough restraint to not watch every bad movie that has been released. There was a time  – before I worked 50 to 60 hours a week at my day job – where I did watch just about […]

The Top 10 Best Movies of 2009

2009 was an interesting year. There were a slew of really good movies, but none – no, not even The Hurt Locker – that were absolute awe-inspiring. In past years, there are usually two or three movies that are so good that they make the rest of the list look pathetic; this time around, none […]

The Best Action Movies of 2009

There are some people in this world who don’t like action movies. It’s sad, really. To think that there are people going through this world who have never seen Bullitt or Last of the Mohicans or Heat or The Dark Knight or Transformers, among others, is extremely sad. Then again, it’s hard to blame people […]

25 Must-See Movies in 2010

The New Year is here, which can only mean one thing: twelve more months of new movies! Sadly, while hundreds of movies will be released in 2010, most of them will end up being bland, disappointing or just plain bad. Which ones will amaze? Which ones will conquer? Which ones will  be at least worth […]

The 10 Most Disappointing Movies of 2009

Each year, there are good movies and there are bad movies. And then there are the movies that claw at your soul, that could and should have been good but just… aren’t. These movies often fall onto “most anticipated” lists and have plenty of healthy (or unhealthy) buzz surrounding them. Audiences are dying to see […]

2009 Holiday Buying Guide: DVDs and Blu-Rays

Looking to buy some DVDs or Blu-Rays this holiday season? Do you wrap them up and put them under the Christmas tree, or shove them in a stocking? I like to do both, because the more movies the better! With the holidays just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to start thinking about the […]
