Savages

Savages

Tuesday, April 23, 2013 1 Comment

Rife with gore, Savages definitely appeals to a violence leaning audience. The story, following two independent drug dealers who get into hot water with a drug cartel, isn’t all that unique. Sure, the love triangle (with the ever so sexy Blake Lively) had a slightly different spin than the triangulation we’re used to in movies, […]

Jurassic Park: An IMAX 3D Experience

Monday, April 8, 2013 No Comments

It’s been years since I last watched Jurassic Park, and, frankly, I’m thankful for that, because I’m having trouble coming up with the proper word to describe Jurassic Park: An IMAX 3D Experience. I’m just not sure whether “epic” fits the bill appropriately, or if “monumental” says it better. Seeing an already great film for […]

This is 40 Capture

This is 40

Sunday, April 7, 2013 No Comments

Maybe it’s just me, but Judd Apatow threw way too much realism into This is 40. It was like the potential outcome of your life staring you down and saying “Hey! Hey there. See what you’ve got to look forward to?” Considering how well put together it was, excluding its story’s disjointed feeling, and a […]

Killing Them Softly

Killing Them Softly

Monday, April 1, 2013 No Comments

Flowing with artistic sequences and boring dialogical exchanges, Killing Them Softly had the rhythm of a limping turtle. Then forty minutes into the film James Gandolfini shows up and word diarrheas for almost ten minutes about something completely unrelated the to the events in the film. What the heck is that? If it’s not progressing […]

Oz the Great and Powerful

Monday, April 1, 2013 No Comments

There go two hours of my life. I might have been able to overlook the purposely-included overacting, gross overuse of obviously green-screened 3D effects, and the barebones black and white, good vs. evil plotline in Oz the Great and Powerful, if not for the fact that they ran throughout the entirety of the film! Granted, […]

Robot and Frank

Robot & Frank

Friday, March 29, 2013 No Comments

An aging semi-ex-con named Frank, played by Frank Langella, is forced to live under the supervision of a health care robot. That’s the premise of Robot & Frank (a very accurate title). It’s a fun concept and an almost equally as fun film. It isn’t amazing, as it suffers from a mild case of flatness […]

Arbitrage

Arbitrage

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 No Comments

There’s something lacking about Arbitrage that didn’t induce the desired thrilling atmosphere it purportedly contained. Maybe it was that the police were highly incompetent. I mean, Gere left a trail of evidence behind him, and they still had a hard time convicting him? And what about the business deal which I felt was never fully […]

The Paperboy

The Paperboy

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 No Comments

I think I have found the movie that takes the prize as being the worst I’ve seen of 2012. Sure, there was a lot of absolute drivel that came out, but nothing was as disjointed, as discomforting, and as hilariously awful as The Paperboy. The story was just a mess. Sure there was some form […]

Company of Heroes - BD packshot

Company of Heroes

Friday, March 15, 2013 1 Comment

Company of Heroes pleasantly surprised me, not because I liked it, but because I didn’t hate it. Set in the same era as its video game cousins, the film is centered on a group of soldiers who try to uncover the mystery behind Hitler’s secret weapon. Being a straight to DVD movie, my expectations were […]

The Intouchables

The Intouchables

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 No Comments

The Intouchables was wonderful. Sure there were strands of stories that seemed to trail off into obscurity, but the relationship between the two main characters was the key element of the film, and it was excellent. The chemistry between the two of them, the snappy and humorous dialogue, and the overall charm of the film […]
