Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
After the Wedding (in Film)
A paradoxical, if ultimately plausible portrait of a fractured family whose emotions can not be contained when the skeletons finally come bursting out of the closet.


The Lookout (in Film)
The Lookout is a film that actually asks the audience to get involved and engage in discourse.


Killer of Sheep (in Film)
This super-realistic, slice-of-life drama stands up just fine, delivering a more accurate peek at the psyche and predicament of the black male.


U-Carmen (in Film)
U-Carmen effectively conveys a sense of everyday life in the region’s Khayelistha Township while simultaneously serving up an endearing variation of a magical opera for the ages.


PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS DVD REVIEW (in Film)
Will Smith exudes an endearing charm reminiscent of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, here, so expect to laugh as much as you cry during this touching tearjerker.


ROCKY BALBOA DVD REVIEW (in Film)
Rocky Balboa, though technically the sixth in the series, sure seems an awful lot like a remake of the first film in the storied franchise.

SHOOTER (in Film)
While Walhberg provides plenty of action, there’s no substance to a convoluted plot and a hackneyed ending.

PRIDE (in Film)
Well-intentioned, at best, Pride, regrettably, doesn’t show enough brotherly love for anyone to be proud of it.


RUN'S HOUSE DVD REVIEW (in Film)
The Complete Seasons 1 & 2 Review


I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE (in Film)
Worse is the fact that the picture isn’t funny. It essentially consists of a series of vaguely-familiar skits ostensibly lifted from a variety of other cinematic adventures.


THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY (in Film)
A cinematic masterpiece from start to finish but a righteous rallying cry for disenfranchised masses anywhere with nothing left to lose but their chains.

BEYOND THE GATES (in Film)
A relentlessly-grim reminder of how the world simply watched when it would have been so easy to put an end to the madness.

THE PAGE TURNER (in Film)
A suspenseful psychological thriller which rates right up there with the best of the genre.

Wondrous Oblivion DVD (in Film)

A touching rites-of-passage tale which simultaneously sends valuable messages about friendship, fidelity, tolerance, and reaching for the stars.

Blood Diamond DVD (in Film )

The movie is at heart a high body-count adventure although it is also heavily layered with sentimental subplots at every turn.

My Brother (in Film )

A moving and meaningful melodrama about a blood bond tested by the trials and tribulations of trying to survive in the inner city.

CASINO ROYALE DVD (in Film )

Passable as a generic action flick, but an exercise in frustration for any purist expecting a familiar 007 spectacular.

SUBLIME DVD (in Film )

This psychological thriller scares the bejesus out of you while subtly using malpractice as metaphor for an unacknowledged aspect of American culture

300(in Film )

It's a high octane, breathtaking, and gory film, yet powerful and well executed on a visual level never seen before.
