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 […]

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 […]

We Bought a Zoo

We Bought a Zoo

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 No Comments

Like Matt Damon’s character in the film, We Bought a Zoo stumbles along through the story trying to find its bearings. At times it’s syrupy sweet, funny and heartwarming, and at others it feels somewhat forced, mislaid and tired. I found these ticks particularly noticeable when it came to dialogue, as some of the lines […]

Spirit Camera - The Cursed Memoir

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir

Tuesday, April 24, 2012 No Comments

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir has got to be one of the most innovative games I’ve played in a while. It not only utilizes the 3D aspect of the device, but takes advantage of the camera and the motion/gyro sensors as well to deliver a hauntingly puzzle filled adventure. The game is about a mysterious […]

Beginners

Beginners

Beginners, a sweet, quirky film, with an equally themed soundtrack, follows a son who, in one timeline, discovers that his dying father is gay, and in another, falls for a peculiar girl. Sprinkled throughout we get a glimpse at his childhood experiences with his mother. Now, though the stories were equally intriguing, I am not […]

Win, Win

Win Win

Thursday, September 29, 2011 No Comments

Win Win was a simple, yet sweet, yarn, with some respectable acting and humor. The only problems I noticed were that some of the plot elements that were asserted earlier on in the film seemed to vanish almost completely. For example, Paul Giamatti’s financial issues, which were emphasized at the beginning, disappeared from the story […]

Portal 2

Portal 2

Thursday, May 12, 2011 No Comments

As excited as I was at the news that Portal 2 was going to be over 4 times longer than its predecessor, I was also slightly fear ridden as well. You see, what made the first Portal so great was how short and, well, sweet it was, and this one being much longer, I was […]
