Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
HE’S JUST THAT NOT INTO YOU

It makes you want to scream and then commend, reprimand and then smile

THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES(DVD REVIEW)

Smart and sentimental but not syrupy, with a well-executed script guaranteed to leave you in tears.


Medicine For Melancholy

A candid commentary on the state of the battle-of-the-sexes in a post-racial age of strangers with benefits.


The Reader

Winslet Shines in Empathetic Portrait of Nazi Pedophile


Taken

It's the same man-saves-the-day stuff we've seen in the past, so check your brain at the door and sit back for pure fun.


Lakeview Terrace(DVD Review)

Samuel L. Jackson Dud as Racist Neighbor Now on DVD


UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS

Michael Sheen certainly makes the most out of his role as Lucian, and fans of the monster-film genre will not be disappointed


The Wrestler

Mickey Rourke Resuscitates Career as Comeback Kid in Search of Redemption


Barack Obama: The Man and His Journey

The biography is a cloying love fest from start to finish aimed at Obama supporters inclined to revisit every aspect of the campaign.


Defiance

Fact-Based Holocaust Film Chronicles Case of Jewish Resistance in Poland


Notorious

Tillman has put together an exciting tale of one of the greatest rappers, and many will be pleased when they leave the theater. Your only regret will be that Big’s life should have been longer.


Not Easily Broken

While each of the actors give compelling performances, the film is saddled with convoluted and contrived plots that makes one question what its initial intentions were.


Gran Torino

This cross of 8-Mile and Death Wish looks terribly dated, like the desperate last gasp of pre-Obama Era intolerance.


Last Chance Harvey

Hoffman and Thompson team to weave movie magic via a vintage romantic roundelay.


The Family That Preys DVD

A pat cautionary tale which manages to push the right emotional buttons every time.


Pineapple Express DVD

Pineapple Express features Seth Rogen and James Franco as the latest duo endeavoring to generate a little chemistry while consuming cannabis.


Doubt

Streep and Hoffman Square-Off in Screen Adaptation of Modern Parable


Slumdog Millionaire

Dev Patel Delivers as Lovesick Game Show Contestant


Nothing But The Truth

Kate Beckinsale’s emotional performance is arguably the best of her career.


The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

If there's one story that you want to be intrigued by and watch it grow into something fascinating, you can't wrong with this one. It's worth the cinematic journey.


Seven Pounds

As good as Smith has been at the plate (box office) with hit after hit, he struck out with this at bat.

Frost/Nixon

Director Ron Howard, here, is basically offering any still-embittered, fellow Baby Boomers a belated opportunity to bask in Nixon’s humiliation.
