A Separation

A Separation

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 No Comments

Flowing from scene to scene, A Separation had me mesmerized, following the characters intently as it weaved through the various turns and developments that were seamlessly fastened to the progression of the story. From the acting, directing, and writing, this movie was brilliantly structured. Even with its multiple levels of twists and character nuances, this […]

Act of Valor

Act of Valor, with all its picturesque locales, was a visually stunning adaptation of Call of Duty, with actual Navy SEALs! It showed off the fascinating intricacies of tactical maneuvers (often times from a first person perspective), with all the glorious gunfights and explosive goodness that you’d expect from a first person shooter. Unfortunately, the […]

I have finally done it! It’s been over six years in the making, but I’ve finally succeeded in winning an Oscar… pool! I’d like to thank my manager, that guy rolling around on the floor humming “Magic Moments” by Perry Como, the Care Bears, and of course, Jesus! Unfortunately, however excited I was to win, […]

In Bruges

In Bruges

Thursday, February 23, 2012 1 Comment

In Bruges is not an action movie in the American sense (highflying explosions, shallow characters, more explosions, cliché storylines, and more explosions, (oh, and let’s not forget explosions)).

The High Cost of Living

The High Cost of Living

Wednesday, February 22, 2012 No Comments

I’ve seen the story before, I’d say, at least 3 times. Person A commits an accidental crime. Out of guilt, s/he tries to find the victim (or close relative of), but instead of confessing to the crime, they befriend said wounded without ever admitting to being the culprit. And thus begins a twisted relationship. The […]
