30 minutes or less

30 Minutes or Less

Friday, August 19, 2011 No Comments

30 Minutes or Less didn’t come anywhere close to the awesomeness of Zombieland (which was one of my favorite movies from 2009, and was also directed by Ruben Fleischer) for a few reasons. It was overly vulgar, it wasn’t nearly as clever, and I really don’t like Danny McBride. Also, I’m not sure how I […]


Winnie the Pooh

Monday, July 18, 2011 2 Comments

I’m torn. I absolutely loved Winnie the Pooh. It was well written, playing magnificently to both kids and adults, and a treat for the eyes, featuring animation lovingly emulating the classic style. However, it was far too short, even with the pre-feature short. As it reached the end, I was left wondering where the second […]

Winnie the Pooh

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh will always be my favorite movie based on the tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff, however, Winnie the Pooh, which opened this weekend, is a close second. It’s charming, funny, and I loved the artwork, which was very reminiscent of the style from the aforementioned 1977 film. […]

The Eagle

The Eagle

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 […]

I can just imagine the meeting that took place when they came up with the MacGuffin for Unstoppable. Doody face 1: I got it! How about an action thriller about a runaway train? Doody face 2: Meh. Doody face 1: Okay fine, how about this. A runaway train that has flammable and toxic materials on […]

The next three days

The Next Three Days

Tuesday, January 11, 2011 No Comments

The Next Three Days started off quite well. A woman is arrested for murder, and her husband, who is convinced she didn’t commit the crime even though the evidence is very strong, tries to clear her name legally. And if the movie would have stuck with that, I would have been satisfied. But it didn’t! […]

Little Fockers

Monday, January 10, 2011 No Comments

For fans of Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers, Little Fockers may be right up your alley. It has the exact same atmosphere as the previous ones, and, well, it’s pretty much identical to the other ones. Come to think of it, this movie is almost completely imitative. Wait, let me correct my statement […]

The King's Speech

The King’s Speech

Monday, December 20, 2010 3 Comments

The story in The King’s Speech seems really trivial at first. A Duke who stammers when he speaks as the main plot line doesn’t seem like a very strong story. But, it’s so much more than that. His speech impediment was crippling to the point where he had very little self-confidence. This type of paralyzing […]

The Tourist

The Tourist

The Tourist, a film about an American tourist in Venice who finds himself caught in the midst of a manhunt, is just another addition to the lengthy list of unoriginal, formulaic, yet dimly amusing, films. I mean, everything about this movie from the trite story and  cliché romance, to the unbearably dumb twist ending was […]

A space probe crash lands on earth with extraterrestrial matter on it and six years later giant octopus looking (whale sound making) aliens are roaming Northern Mexico. That’s where the characters in Monsters find themselves, trying to traverse the infected area to get to the States from Central America. And they travel, and travel, and […]
