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 […]

One Day

Tuesday, September 6, 2011 No Comments

How many ways are there to say “I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it”? That seems to be my predicament, as One Day, a story following the events of two friends on the same day each year, was enjoyable but contained a couple of aggravating flaws. Firstly, the basis of their entire relationship […]

Vanquish

Vanquish

Tuesday, November 30, 2010 1 Comment

Yet another game where Russia is the villain, Vanquish’s generic story and dull writing leave much to be desired. There are also quite a few issues. For example, on the occasions where you’re thrown into first person mode, your character can walk through NPCs as though they aren’t there, bosses are constantly rehashed, and some […]

It’s Kind of a Funny Story

Tuesday, October 26, 2010 1 Comment

It’s praiseworthy when a movie’s title sheds some truth on its content, so I have to give It’s Kind of a Funny Story a small, yet appreciative, bow, because I did chuckle occasionally. However, this lithely velutinous version of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest was not only meant to be comedic, it was also […]

Dante’s Inferno

Wednesday, August 4, 2010 No Comments

Though hack n’ slash games are rarely perfect– they usually suffer from poor camera angles – I enjoy them. Dante’s Inferno, a solid looking game based on the poem about a man’s journey through hell was decent. It’s your basic run-of-the-mill button masher, which means that after the first hour, you’ve already seen pretty much […]

Shutter Island

Shutter Island

Monday, June 21, 2010 No Comments

From the moment Shutter Island, a movie about a cop trying to find a missing patient at an insane asylum, started where the characters were on a boat with a clearly fake oceanic backdrop, I thought I was in for a crumtastic two hours. However, it wasn’t half bad. First off, the fact that I […]

Away We Go

Away We Go

Thursday, May 27, 2010 No Comments

As with Julie & Julia, Away We Go lacked any overarching drama. I mean, there were slivers of drama, but they were too small to constitute anything larger than a minor hiccup on the movie’s overall story. But, as with Julie & Julia, this movie was lovable and really quite enjoyable. The story about a […]

The Young Victoria

Wednesday, May 12, 2010 No Comments

I am no history buff, so my ignorance is likely to blame for not understanding a lot of what happened politically and historically in The Young Victoria, the story of Queen Victoria and her struggles as a young sovereign. What I did understand, however, was the romance, which wasn’t amazing but was enjoyable. It was […]

The Invention of Lying

Monday, May 10, 2010 No Comments

Review The Invention of Lying is a comedic, often touching and sometimes surprising film that, unfortunately, shares a flaw found in Liar Liar. Like Jim Carrey’s character in Liar Liar the people in this film always say whatever’s on their minds. Also, for some reason, they can’t see people’s personalities. Being unable to lie doesn’t […]

How to train your dragon

How To Train Your Dragon

Monday, May 3, 2010 1 Comment

Dragons. Are. Freaking. Awesome. Sauce! If there were one mythical creature I’d want to be real, it would probably be dragons. How To Train Your Dragon, a movie about an adolescent Viking who doesn’t really fit the classic Viking mold, was alright. It didn’t really do much by way of originality. In fact, it pretty […]
