Blade Runner: Final Cut

Posted: November 20, 2007 at 1:16 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Ridley Scott’s classic will be available on DVD in its final form in about a month, but Warner Bros. is giving it a limited theatrical run. I was lucky enough to get to see this and am happy to report that it looks wonderful. There are no drastic changes to the film other than it […]

No Country for Old Men

Posted: November 20, 2007 at 9:52 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The Coen Bros. return after a three year hiatus with a return to their crime/thriller roots that made them famous in the first place. An adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name, it is one part reflection on our disintegrating society and one part cat and mouse chase thriller, with the cat […]

Beowulf

Posted: November 19, 2007 at 10:10 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Let’s get one thing out of the way, if you see this, see it in IMAX 3-D. The 3-D is phenomenal and a must see for anyone that enjoys film or wants to see the future of the medium. The 3-D gives the movie a bit more life than it might normally have had, but […]

Juno

Posted: November 15, 2007 at 2:30 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Talk about breaking a stereotype. Who would have thought that such a great film like Juno was written by an ex-advertiser/stripper/phone sex operator named Diablo Cody. But that is in fact what she has done and paired with one of the more capable young directors around, Jason Reitman, Juno might end up being the funniest […]

Bee Movie

Posted: November 12, 2007 at 1:02 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

What we have here is Dreamworks newest piece of animation that continues on a healthy run of quality, outside the atrocious Shrek 3, following Over the Hedge and Flushed Away. Bee Movie is equally as ridiculous as Flushed Away with the whole, Bee World, and it is just impossible to believe that the animals that […]

Wristcutters: A Love Story

Posted: November 4, 2007 at 11:05 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Great title, I will definitely give it that. Unfortunately the movie couldn’t live up to the great title that the movie hopes to be. Now, the movie isn’t by any means bad. It just sits in limbo, along with the characters in this unknown universe in the film, almost becoming pretty good but never really […]

American Gangster

Posted: November 3, 2007 at 1:30 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Keys to a great movie? Ridley Scott, check. Denzel Washington, check. Russell Crowe, check. Larger than life and wouldn’t believe it if it wasn’t true story, check. Now all of these are thrown into one movie, and what comes out is absolutely fantastic. I do not have a single complaint about this movie and can […]

Control

Posted: November 3, 2007 at 12:57 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This is one of those movies that comes out of no where and smacks you in the face with how good it is. Control, by first time feature director Anton Corbijn (veteran of many music videos), knocks the rise and fall of Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis. The movie starts with Curtis finding his […]

Lars and the Real Girl

Posted: October 31, 2007 at 9:39 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Ryan Gosling is fantastic in this quirky, silly, and a bit ridiculous coming of age story. Lars is lonely, damaged, quiet, shy, and avoids human contact pretty much whenever possible. He in a normal job, living in the garage of the family house which is occupied by his brother(Paul Schneider) and his expecting wife(Emily Mortimer). […]

Gone Baby Gone

Posted: October 31, 2007 at 9:12 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Another movie dealing with the loss of a child, this one excels on pretty much every level. Gone Baby Gone is an adaptation of the Dennis Lehane(Mystic River) novel by Ben Affleck in his directorial debut. I have always been a fan of Affleck and I am glad that he does a great job here […]
