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 […]

The Brothers Bloom

Posted: May 28, 2009 at 10:02 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

I saw this movie last October and I stand by my opinion from then, and infact, I liked it even more the second time around. Rian Johnson is back with another solid entry in his sophomore debut, which is full of humor, style, and great work by everyone involved, all mixed with a story that […]

Drag Me To Hell

I always like to let people know from the beginning if I am biased one way or another about a film. Everyone has some sort of bias, however as a critic you have to try and remove that and judge a film on it’s own merits. I’m not a huge fan of the horror genre, […]

The Limits of Control

Posted: May 22, 2009 at 12:01 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The latest from Jim Jarmusch is an odd and interesting picture that looks fantastic, has some nice moments, but leaves one scratching their head almost as much as they are enjoying the picture. The film follows and unnamed man who is “on the job” but we are never really led on to what that job […]

Dance Flick

Posted: May 21, 2009 at 9:54 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The latest spoof flick from the Wayans has a success ratio of about 40/60 when it comes to the jokes, but with poor leads and zero story nothing else gives the story a reason to watch a film that will make you laugh less then half the time. Megan is a Julliard wannabe that wasn’t […]

Terminator Salvation

Posted: May 21, 2009 at 1:01 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

McG’s entry into the Terminator franchise is an action packed spectacle with paper thin characters and story, so depending on your tastes you might get a lot or nothing out of the picture. The film opens in 2003 with a guilt filled inmate donating his body to the Cyberdyne company in telling him that he […]

Angels & Demons

Posted: May 14, 2009 at 11:14 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

So, let me state this clearly before I start the main portion of my review since so many people think these things tend to matter. I DO NOT care about the controversies surrounding the movie or the movie that came before it. They are works of fiction that are meant to be viewed as such. […]

Star Trek

Posted: May 7, 2009 at 9:48 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Make no mistake, this is not the Star Trek you grew up on. This movie is two hours of pure fun. Exciting visuals, snappy dialogue, great acting, and just overall great production values. This is the movie that is going to breakout from word of mouth. Star Trek is in one part a prequel, and […]

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Posted: April 30, 2009 at 8:13 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The most amazing thing I can think of about Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is that its star Matthew McConaughey manages to keep his shirt on for pretty much the entire movie. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a retooling of Charles Dickens’s Christmas Carol, instead of being shown his miserly ways, the main character played by […]
