Tangled

Tangled

Monday, November 29, 2010 2 Comments

I was a little skeptical going into Tangled. You see, I love classic Disney cartoons like Aladdin, The Lion King, and what have you, but not many Disney cartoon musicals have come out that have even come close to the awesomeness of those ones in quite some time. However, though this melodic animated twist on […]

Skyline

Skyline

Saying that Skyline was bad is like saying that Antarctica is cold in the winter; it’s a huge understatement. Come to think of it, every adjective I use to describe the various aspects of this Independence Day-esque garbage will be insufficient in expressing just how poor those components are. For example, saying the dialogue was […]

Morning Glory

Morning Glory

So here’s the story. Rachel McAdams, who plays this adorably eccentric, perfectly moon shaped tush producer gets fired from one morning program, and finds a job at another morning show that is rundown and deteriorating. In an attempt to restore the show, she hires the exasperating, cantankerously acting Harrison Ford, who is more than difficult […]

Megamind

Megamind

The first trailer I saw for Megamind basically said that he was a villain, which really wasn’t much of anything. Then another trailer came along that painted this picture of a villain who must assume the role of hero because the actual superhero doesn’t want to fight crime anymore. Well, that trailer was also very […]

Hereafter

Hereafter

Hereafter attempts to showcase various ways people experience death in their lives. There’s a woman who’s brought back from the brink of death, a man who has the gift/curse of being an actual clairvoyant, and a preteen boy who loses his twin brother in a car accident. Each of these stories, on their own, could’ve […]

Buried

Buried

Monday, October 25, 2010 No Comments

A movie that is mostly darkness and has only one actor on screen for almost the entire film is a very ambitious and risky endeavor, and Buried, the story of a man who wakes up in a casket that is buried underground, was actually able to keep me involved and have an unnerving impact on […]

Jackass 3D

Jackass 3D

Monday, October 18, 2010 No Comments

Jackass used to be one of my guilty pleasures, but it being a few years since I’ve seen anything Jackass related, I was scared that I would no longer find it funny. The bad news, Jackass 3D wasn’t funny, the good news, it was freaking hilarious! My love for this disgustingly raunchy series has been […]

Let Me In

Let Me In, a movie based on a Swedish film (which is based on a novel), follows a bullied adolescent boy who befriends the girl who moves in next-door who happens to be a vampire. I know what you’re going to say, and don’t worry, this isn’t anything like Twilight. It doesn’t portray vampires as […]

The Social Network

The Social Network

Even though I still think they should have waited 15-20 years before making The Social Network, the story of Mark Zuckerberg and the birth of Facebook, I was quite impressed by it. David Fincher did a phenomenal job, the acting was fantastic and some of the cinematography and writing was beautiful. I also think Jesse […]

The Town

The Town

Monday, September 27, 2010 No Comments

Simply put, The Town is not horrible, but it isn’t anything innovative or awe inspiring either. The story follows Ben Affleck (and his constantly fluctuating Boston accent) who plays a crook that falls for an employee of a bank that him and his crew robbed. It has its plus sides, like some respectable acting and […]
