This documentary dives into the behind the scenes fight for Broadway glory as we follow the audition process for A Chorus Line revival show and the results is a fascinating look into the lives of these performers and the rare chance to observe these people bare everything in their soul as they wish for that […]

The Proposal

Posted: June 19, 2009 at 12:44 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The romantic comedy genre is so overloaded with formulaic renditions of the same film that came out the year before, with actors in it for such an obvious paycheck. ‘The Proposal’ is another formulaic entry to the romantic comedy genre.  However, it suceeds by having very likable leads. It proves that even with a stale […]

Year One

Posted: June 18, 2009 at 8:54 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Harold Ramis is back behind the camera for his latest with his new Apatow friends and the result is a intermittently humorous film that is rather mediocre to not funny for over half the film. Oh and Zed are a pair of tribesmen that are quite the pair of failures in their tribe. Zed is […]

Away We Go

Posted: June 12, 2009 at 12:59 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

“Away We Go” is a great example of when to not judge a book by it’s cover. It is being cleverly marketed as an indie comedy similar to the way “Juno” was a year and half ago.  This film maintains a lot of the indie cinema mainstays like indie rock soundtrack, quirky characters, and even […]

Imagine That

Posted: June 12, 2009 at 12:29 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

If I were to guess I would say that Eddie Murphy most likely likes those paint by the number paintings.  Why would I say something like that? Well, it seems a lot of his movies have followed the same paint by the numbers type film making that after a while it just gets boring. “Imagine […]

Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

Posted: June 12, 2009 at 12:01 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Tony Scott’s latest with frequent collaborator Denzel Washington is a mediocre affair that is poorly written and can’t even muster much style out of Scott either. Walter Garber is introduced to us as an everyday transit authority civil servant that mans and maintains the New York City subway traffic so that it flows with ease […]

My Life in Ruins

Posted: June 4, 2009 at 10:00 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Nia Vardalos hit indie gold with her 2002 hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  Besides a little pit stop with 2004’s Connie and Carla she has been pretty absent from the world of film. Is her latest film a grand return to the screen after years of absence? Sadly, no. Getting your kefi back or […]

Land of the Lost

Posted: June 4, 2009 at 10:00 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

So, this summer has already seen one remake of an older series with slightly cheesy effects. We all remember how that turned out? Well, did Land of the Lost turn out as well? Ah, well that might be a bit of a debate for some. Dr. Rick Marshall is a scientist who has been laughed […]

The Hangover gives you none of the side effects listed above. The great news? It is probably one of the funniest comedies I have seen in a […]

Up

Posted: May 28, 2009 at 10:03 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

To be perfectly honest I thought I was going to enjoy this movie. I have high expectations with Pixar films. However, last years Pixar film Wall-E had such a great trailer that it almost moved me to tears. The trailer for Up was exciting, but didn’t have the same effect. So, yes I thought I […]
