G.I. Joe

Posted: August 7, 2009 at 12:35 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Well, this one wasn’t screened for critics, so that should give you some indication as to how good of a film it is. I always wonder why studios do that, it seems to me (and to the general population a lot of times) like a vote of no confidence in the film they have invested […]

A Perfect Getaway

Posted: August 6, 2009 at 11:41 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Beautiful scenery, set on the tropical islands of Hawaii. Luscious waterfalls, perfectly green grass for miles, fading into the blue ocean as the waves meet with the horizon. Sounds like “A Perfect Getaway” to me. But throw in a series of murders involving newlyweds on the island, and the honeymoon is over. “A Perfect Getaway” […]

Julie & Julia

Posted: August 6, 2009 at 11:00 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Nora Ephron’s adaptation of two books connected to the life and teachings of the chef Julia Child is an often hilarious yet a bit overly long tale that overall is quite the success in the end and carries one of the finest performances of the year. Julie Powell is a wannabe writer. Having written half […]

This latest stop motion animated drama is an odd, lonely, and somewhat interesting tale that doesn’t do anything special and leaves you a bit bewildered with everything. The film focuses on a set of individuals living in an apartment building as they all deal with issues in their lives while also coming rather loosely connected […]

In The Loop

Posted: August 3, 2009 at 1:55 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This political satire of the American and British government’s reaction to an impending war in Iraq is quite funny at times but ultimately feels like Christopher Guest lite. Following a set of individuals in and around the governments of both the American and British states, with individuals both for and against the war, we get […]

Restaurant Review – Tigín Irish Pub

Posted: July 31, 2009 at 1:41 pm   /   Local, Restaurant Reviews

I Love Irish Pubs! Being part Irish, maybe it makes me feel like there’s a bit of my ancestry in them. Potatoes, Corned Beef, Alcoholics, it’s like I’m in Ireland. Really, I’ve been there, it’s just like that. Tigín (a Gaelic word meaning small cottage) Irish Pub is located on Washington Ave., just down the […]

Funny People

Judd Apatow’s latest is his lesser effort to date, but is still quite funny at times it just drags on a bit to long and doesn’t hit the emotional highs I think it was going for. George Simmons is a comedy superstar. He lives the life of celebrity, alone, in a large mansion paid for […]
