Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
IRON MAN(DVD REVIEW)

A ‘Marvel’-ously cerebral superhero with a functioning conscience. 


Nights in Rodanthe

Another sappy soap opera for Nicholas Sparks fans satisfied by panoramic seascapes offset intermittently by lingering interludes of dysfunctional strangers locking lips and loins.


Miracle At St. Anna

At the end of this nearly three hour movie, what you have is a noble attempt thwarted by uneven artistic choices.


Ghost Town

Highlighted by the soulful sounds of Jill Scott, the music helps steer attention
to the film that might otherwise be dismissed in its first half.


Hounddog

Highlighted by the soulful sounds of Jill Scott, the music helps steer attention
to the film that might otherwise be dismissed in its first half.


Lakeview Terrace

A house of cards only stands still if carefully placed, but with ‘Lakeview Terrace’, too many false and quick moves doomed it.


The Duchess

Fine acting, and clever visual and sentimental recreation of life in 18th century England, is bound to make a fan of even those whose typical fare does not include period films.


Burn After Reading

Burn after Reading is a refreshingly-intelligent diversion designed with the more cerebral cineaste in mind.


Diary of a Tired Black Man

Excellent Indie-Flick from Tim Alexander Finally Finds Distribution with Magnolia Pictures


88 Minutes DVD Review

An excessively violent, sloppily-edited, unintentionally funny, overly sentimental affair which has nothing much going for it beyond a snazzy score and some stylized special effects.


THE FAMLY THAT PREYS
(SAME MOVIE DIFFERENT
REVIEW)


The Family That Preys tells a story of friendship, dreams, and betrayal that has universal appeal transcending all class and racial divides.


THE FAMLY THAT PREYS

The Family That Preys tells a story of friendship, dreams, and betrayal that has universal appeal transcending all class and racial divides.


Bangkok Dangerous

An excessively violent, sloppily-edited, unintentionally funny, overly sentimental affair which has nothing much going for it beyond a snazzy score and some stylized special effects.


Mister Foe

A brooding Jamie Bell in his most memorable outing since Billy Elliot.


Trouble The Water

If there was ever a film that needs to be seen, it's the documentary film 'Trouble the Water'. Catch Scott and Kimberly Rivers Roberts were able to catch on video many citizens in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina


The Long Shots

Ice Cube and the cast give a by-the-books clichéd story that most folks can sit back and enjoy.


Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder is an intelligent and frequently funny film with some profound points to make about the shallowness of the movie industry.


VICKY CHRISTINA BARCELONA

IVicky Cristina Barcelona is vintage Woody Allen not to be missed


STREET KINGS (DVD REVIEW)

When you have trouble reading a hero’s motivations at every turn, the result is a comical headscratcher like this unmitigated mess.


A Girl Cut in Two (La Fillee Coupee en Deux)

An ill-fated love triangle with an alarming twist leading to a sobering message for shameless gold-diggers and suave Casanovas alike.


One Bad Cat

A compelling documentary narrated by stentorian-throated Delroy Lindo.


Smart People

A dysfunctional-family drama which might as well have been titled Smart Aleck.


I'm Through With White Girls

Alternately entertaining and enlightening, this hilariously funny flick is proof positive that it’s possible to shoot a sophisticated romantic romp on a shoe-string budget.


Pineapple Express

With lots of action, comedy, and drugs, ‘Pineapple Express’ has it all and you don’t have to be stoned to enjoy it.


Swing Vote

Swing Vote is ultimately the bitterly disappointing with nothing much to offer other than some sappy sermonizing about patriotically exercising right to vote.


Sixty Six

This predictable costume drama might have a certain nostalgic appeal for soccer fans and folks familiar with Judaic culture and religious traditions.


All About Us (DVD REVIEW)

A semi-autobiographical love story chronicling the similar options once weighed in real life by the husband/wife team of producer Michael Swanson and scriptwriter/director Christine Swanson.


America The Beautiful

Scathing Documentary Explores America’s Unhealthy Obsession with Beauty


Step Brothers

Too bad this re-teaming of Ferrell and Reilly failed to generate any magic, as did their prior outing in Talladega Nights.
