This film has recieved a combined score of 7.75/10 The film stars off with a murder. Sounds like a good start to a mini-series so far. We then cut to the star of the film, Russell Crowe – playing a well seasoned journalist who still does things the old fashioned way. Cruising along in his […]

Casper is a mid level gang member of the Mara gang and he is recruiting the young Smiley to become part of his “brotherhood”. […]

Adventureland

Posted: April 14, 2009 at 9:41 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This film has garnered an 8.5/10 between our two reviews. In 2007’s Superbad, director Greg Mottola hit box office gold with a coming of age story of two high school losers with foul mouths and a funny story. While Adventureland is another coming of age story, it doesn’t appear to have the same qualities to […]

But Sunshine Cleaning still manages to be an intriguing character study. Rose is a single mother living paycheck to paycheck, working for maid service company as she works toward getting her real […]

Duplicity

Posted: April 10, 2009 at 12:05 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The latest from Toy Gilroy is not quite as good as his previous effort, but it is still a fun and fairly unconventional con game/spy/thriller that will have you scratching your head here and there as the plot unravels to the end. Ray Koval is former MI6, Claire Stenwick is former CIA, and after a […]

After two reviews, this film has received an average score of 5/10 I was finally able to see “Monsters vs. Aliens” in all of its 3D glory – and I have to say that I was very impressed. Going into the film, the main thing that I took into consideration is that it was going […]

I try to give every movie a fair shot when I go into the theater. In fact, some of my favorite movies have come out of me doing that. I go in expecting to not like it, and then poof two hours later I’m ready for the DVD release. Miss March unfortunately was not one […]
