I Love You Man

Posted: February 24, 2009 at 9:33 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Paul Rudd and Jason Segel star in this solid comedy that is fairly original but lacks something that puts it into that upper pantheon of comedies over the last few years. Peter Klaven (Rudd) has just got engaged to Zooey (Rashida Jones) when it dawns upon the couple that Peter doesn’t really have a candidate […]

He’s Just Not That Into You

Posted: February 17, 2009 at 1:44 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This dramedy that is being sold as some silly romantic comedy is actually pretty serious and interesting look at relationships that works for the most part, outside vindicating the failures of some its characters in the end and warping young girl’s minds. The film follows an ensemble of intertwining characters and couples, for instance Jennifer […]

This epic biopic about the Argentinean revolutionary is engaging, informative, and includes a phenomenal portrait and portrayal of this extraordinary individual by Benicio Del Toro. Che Guevara was a philosophizing Marxist doctor who felt that his Latin American people have been oppressed for too long and that a revolution by the people was the only […]

Henry Poole is Here

Posted: February 3, 2009 at 12:02 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This dramedy about religion, life issue and what it does to people is a fairly uneventful tale, but it holds one interest and has a number of genuine moments throughout. Henry (Luke Wilson) is a down and out of it and after purchasing a suburban house in California, after he was unable to get the […]
