Kick-Ass…

I love comic books. Always have always will, and I am simply amazed at how many comic book adaptations are making it to the big screen. Ten years ago I would have never dreamed that something like Kick-Ass would grace the silver screen. It’s not a Superman, Batman, or Spider-Man,…

Clash of the Titans…

Popcorn season is upon us. How do we know this? Because the first ridiculous over the top no plot movie of the summer has been released…aka Clash of the Titans. Unfortunately, and hopefully this is not an omen for the upcoming season, but I was disappointed by it. How could…

Avatar…

Avatar is the latest thrill ride from director James Cameron, who has pretty much just cemented himself as king of the box office. Thrill ride is certainly the best phrase to use when describing Avatar. It certainly has no equal in terms of computer effects. However as great as all…

An Education…

The coming of age tale of a young girl in 1961 England, Jenny is 16 with tastes of a women twice her age. She yearns for a more cultured life. Top of her class, she does everything she can to fulfill her parents dreams of attending Oxford. But will Oxford…

The Girlfriend Experience…

So this film confused the shit out of me. I did not realize that this film was cut out of chronological order, which is a rather important detail. It wasn’t until I was through about half the movie that I realized that out. Going into it I thought it was…

Land of the Lost…

After my disaster experience with Year One I had low hopes for Land of the Lost, but it surprises. Not redefining or earth shattering, but LOTL has enough laughs to make it worth a rental. The best scenes come early and late, most of them involving Matt Lauer. But outside…

Year One…

So this was supposed to be a comedy, but I didn’t laugh. Fail! Going into the movie I thought it was about cave men, and while Jake Black and Michael Cera are cave men their journeys have them bumping into Jews, Romans, and Cain & Abel. All groups intermingling as…

Inglourious Basterds…

I’m undecided on Tarantino. Reservoir Dogs, great. Kill Bill Part 1, also great. Kill Bill Part 2, little boring but still good. Pulp Fiction, good. From Dusk Till Dawn, fun and enjoyable. All those films and so much indecision, it’s almost illogical. His films are always stylized with his signature…
