Sherlock Holmes

Wednesday, March 31, 2010 1 Comment

As with Avatar and many other movies of this generation, Sherlock Holmes prides itself on being a spectacle. On that front, it delivers marvelously. The set pieces are gorgeous, the cinematography is very Guy Ritchie, and the acting was quite enjoyable. However, it lacked an original storyline. Moreover, the movie did not do a very […]

In a last-ditch effort to save his war film, a director sends his actors into a jungle, to be filmed by hidden cameras, with no more than a scene guide and blank-loaded weapons. What he doesn’t realize is that the actors are about to be in real danger, as they are thrust into a real […]

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

While Vicky Cristina Barcelona did contain some very pleasing components like Javier Bardem’s acting, an attractive female cast, the Barcelona backdrop and Spanish influenced musical pieces, what kept me from fully enjoying this film was the aggravating narration. I loathe narrators, for I prefer to be shown the story rather than told. The one and […]

It may be that I haven’t seen enough animated films in my life, but the animation in Fantastic Mr. Fox was unlike anything I have ever seen before, or at least that I can remember. The cast of critters was glowing with star power, the soundtrack was filled with delectable tunes and there was a […]

The Stoning of Soraya M.

Friday, March 26, 2010 No Comments

Aside from Jim Caviezel’s poor French accent, The Stoning of Soraya M. was incredibly powerful and moving. As the title says, this movie is about the true story of the stoning of Soraya, who was falsely accused of cheating on her husband. I should warn you that if you don’t have a heart of stone, […]
