The Watchmen [movies] The Watchmen [movies]
[I’m going to keep this review spoiler free for the most part, so feel free to read on if you haven’t seen the movie or read the book] It’s pretty much impossible to not fall into geeky hyperbole or fanboy bashing, maybe even simultaneously, when talking about Zack Snyder’s adaptation...

He’s Just Not That Into You [movies] He’s Just Not That Into You [movies]
When I first heard about He’s Just Not That Into You, the romantic comedy based on an advice book that is the dumbed down equivalent of a fierce slap in the face of reality, I was under the impression that it would be a heinous mess of a movie, full of unlikable characters who act in unrealistic...

As Nasty As Kevin Smith Wants To Be As Nasty As Kevin Smith Wants To Be
Cross posted here. My first experience with Kevin Smith was when I tricked my mother into letting me rent the VHS copy of Clerks that our local Blockbuster had. This resulted in me, a young and impressionable fifteen year old, playing the tape in the living room while the dialogue of the movie began...

Taken [movies] Taken [movies]
Taken is about as by the numbers as you can get when it comes to a thriller/suspense /action movie. Its saving grace is its unmistakable sheen of experience, the kind of surehandedness that turns convenitonalism into familiarity making for an overall enjoyable ride. In the hands of action specialist...

The Wrestler [movies] The Wrestler [movies]
It takes a hell of a filmmaker to make a movie that’s so gloriously triumphant while so deeply immersed in sympathy. You just feel so bad for Randy Robinson, a past-his-prime professional wrestler who is still hungering for the cheers of the crowd. And yet, you genuinely cheer for him. And often...

Che: Part 1: The Argentine [movies] Che: Part 1: The Argentine [movies]
It’s a bit weird for me to review Che: Part One, being that it’s only half of Steven Soderbergh’s epic (both Part One and Part Two are being released simultaneously in the theaters). As such, it’s an unfinished story that really shouldn’t, but will be by many casual audience...

Rom Com Roundup [movies] Rom Com Roundup [movies]
Ladies and gentlemen, I am going to take a journey. A journey into the souls of men, a look in the mirror, a wake up call if you will. As you may already know, I am an ardent fan of cheesy, awful romantic comedies. And now, with studies showing that watching romantic comedies may in fact be harmful to...
