Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Posted: January 2, 2008 at 9:15 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The newest film out of the Apatow camp is by far the weakest, but still has some good laughs and an enjoyable turn by John C. Reilly as Dewey Cox.As a spoof movie, it is a fun romp, and has to be a million times better than the likes of Epic Movie or that recent […]

Once

Posted: January 2, 2008 at 8:15 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

One of the top films of the year is this little seen masterpiece. Having seen it 3 times now does not take away from the excellence of this film and I urge to rush out and see this now. An Irish “musical,” Guy meets Girl and they bond over the creation of music. Guy and […]

I Am Legend

Posted: December 27, 2007 at 12:05 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Will Smith’s newest blockbuster works really well for about 75% of the time and the other 25% is just good. Robert Neville is the last human in NYC, is accompanied by his German Sheppard Sam as they hunt for food and go through their daily routine everyday during the daylight. At night they are forced […]

Alien vs Predator: Requiem

Posted: December 27, 2007 at 10:05 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

A guilty pleasure film for sure, this follow up to the bad AVP from a couple of years ago is by no means a good movie in the traditional sense, but the parts that we are here to see, are done well and the film is at least entertaining if you know what your are […]

Mike Nichols new film is a great piece of history through film with a story that few people probably have heard of or know much about in the first place.Tom Hanks stars as the title character; a congressman from a small district in Texas that you would think didn’t have much power, but has a […]

Romance & Cigarettes

The long delayed New York based musical by John Turturro finally gets to show its face, and sadly, outside of a few good laughs here and there this one is not a winner.The film has no direction at all for 2/3 of the film. It feels like a random splattering of scenes most of the […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

Posted: December 17, 2007 at 9:10 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

At World’s End is the solid, but a bit underwhelming, conclusion to the Pirates trilogy. Everyone returns, plus a couple of new faces, to finish the battle for the high seas with amazing special effects and a convoluted plot. World’s End opens with a ridiculous mass hanging scene that sets the wheels in motion for […]

Atonement

Posted: December 15, 2007 at 11:50 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This period drama and Oscar hopeful delivers on multiple levels, at varying times, but meanders occasionally leaving us a bit unfocused at times. Now, I will say I do want to see it again as the theater environment I saw it in was anything but ideal, not to mention it is hard to focus when […]

The most recent Apatow produced comedy continues the run of pretty good comedies by the fore mentioned comedy mastermind. Superbad revolves around the story of two seniors Evan and Seth who find the opportunity to possibly get laid at the last big high school party they will ever get to go to. Outcasts of the […]

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Posted: December 14, 2007 at 10:55 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

HP and OTP is the best film in the series and sets the tables for the thrilling conclusion of the last two films to come. The book and the film both serve as set-ups for the last two plot lines but that doesn’t hurt the material as it is both full of information and adventure.David […]
