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 […]

Intruders

Intruders

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 No Comments

Intruders was damn boring. It wasn’t scary, it wasn’t thrilling, and it wasn’t very good. Sure I was intrigued enough to want to know what was going on, but when the reveal came I was still left almost entirely unimpressed. There was also a glaring plot hole that rendered the entire story virtually irrelevant. I […]

Amour

Amour

Why is Amour nominated for so many Oscars? I truly don’t understand what anyone sees in this movie. I spent the entirety of the film waiting for something to happen, almost fell asleep three times in the attempt, and when the film ended I was completely at a loss. And I’m fairly sure that same […]

The Letter

The Letter

Tuesday, November 13, 2012 No Comments

Self-indulgent, boring, and incoherent. That’s The Letter in a nutshell. I mean, there’s more I can say, like how annoying the over-exposed scenes were, and how the camera was obnoxiously close to the actors at all times, and how badly I wanted to throw a shoe at the director. But that may be overkill. All […]

In Their Skin

Toronto After Dark: In Their Skin

Monday, October 29, 2012 No Comments

In Their Skin is a home invasion type film (admittedly, not my favorite genre) that takes place in a cottage. Yawn! Seriously, this must be the (roughly) 7,503,123rd horror movie set in a cabin secluded from civilization. And yah, the psychotic antagonist was an interesting individual who was well acted, same goes for his wife, […]

The Iron Lady

The Iron Lady

Friday, June 8, 2012 1 Comment

I would watch Meryl Streep act as any character! As Cam (from Modern Family) said, “Meryl Streep can play Batman and be the right choice.” She’s just fantastic, always. And The Iron Lady is no exception. Her command of Margaret Thatcher, both senile and as Prime Minister, was just astounding. Unfortunately the movie itself didn’t […]

Bridesmaids Poster

Bridesmaids

Friday, September 30, 2011 No Comments

Oddly, Bridesmaids reminded me of Transformers. How? It feels like half the film was written by one of the writers, while the other half was written by the other. And considering the fact that the first hour was filled with overplayed awkward “comedy” that seemed to be nothing but a long-form version of many of […]

Agora

Agora

Wednesday, May 11, 2011 No Comments

Agora had potential to be a very respectable film. Taking place around the time of the burning of the library at Alexandria and the religious strife that continued afterwards, this should’ve been very powerful, but it missed the mark entirely. First, there were many moments where I tilted my head questioning the historical accuracy of […]

Unknown

Unknown

Wednesday, March 2, 2011 3 Comments

If you do plan on seeing Unknown, a movie about a man who, after being in a coma for four days, realizes that someone has stolen his identity, don’t expect anything at all. It’s derivative, formulaic, and extremely simple. I mean, with the way the plot was set up, there really could have been a […]

The Eagle

The Eagle

Tuesday, February 22, 2011 No Comments

I’m not sure what bothered me the most about The Eagle. Was it that the Romans had a mix of British and American accents? Was it that Channing Tatum followed suit by having a prevalent American accent sprinkled with the occasional British tinge? Was it that the few action sequences were almost completely ruined by […]
