Another Take By Zac: “The Hangover Part II” Review

Posted: May 26, 2011 at 2:13 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

The Hangover Part II is a lazy, uncreative, and terrible film that improves nothing upon the first film and in fact it copies the original almost note for note to painful affect. You know the story, (no, literally, it’s exactly the same) Stu, Phil, and Alan go out and get so messed up that they […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Something Borrowed

Posted: May 20, 2011 at 12:19 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

Something Borrowed is an abomination of a film that might look okay and feature competent acting; it’s just that they are trapped in a horrendous story filled with unlikable characters and completely unbelievable plot developments. The plot follows Rachel whose best friend, Darcy, is getting married to Rachel’s old crush, Dex.  Rachel and Dex were […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Thor

Posted: May 6, 2011 at 7:06 pm   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

Thor is arguably in the running for the best Marvel movies yet and is a pretty much non-stop blast of action, fun, and humor from start to finish; lead by star making turns by Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston. Thor is a god, and the future king of Asgard, that wields a powerful hammer that […]

Three Films In: Zack Snyder

Posted: April 26, 2011 at 1:36 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Featured, Film, Local

  This will be the first of, what I am hoping will be, at least a monthly series focusing on the first three films in a director’s career.  The focus will be on their feature film work and how I decide who and when I don’t really know.  Maybe I will coordinate it with director’s […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Water for Elephants

Posted: April 23, 2011 at 2:24 pm   /   Another Take From Zac, Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Water for Elephants is a fine looking and acted classic romantic tale that is hampered by a pretty awful script that feels like we are missing large chunks of the story The film opens in the present day with an old man named Jacob lost at the circus as his son has failed to meet […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: The Conspirator

Posted: April 23, 2011 at 2:17 pm   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

Robert Redford’s latest is a fine looking and produced telling of a fairly unknown story in American history that fails to really excel to anything more than a straight forward court room drama that serves as a parallel to our modern day travails with prosecuting through Guantanamo Bay. Now you might ask how a movie […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Hanna

Posted: April 8, 2011 at 12:05 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Joe Wright’s latest, Hanna, is an assassin picture on the surface but at its heart is a film of self discovery after being trapped in isolation your whole life.  It all works really well, but after one viewing I feel like it is missing that special something to make it incredible. The film is fun, […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Your Highness

Posted: April 8, 2011 at 12:01 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

Your Highness is a solid fantasy film throwback that also happens to be quite funny as it lovingly sends up the genres heyday of the 80’s. I worded that opening pitch to emphasize that I think you should view this film as a throwback fantasy film first and a comedy a close second.  That is […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Arthur

Posted: April 8, 2011 at 12:01 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

Arthur is a fine little romantic comedy that is fairly paint by numbers and doesn’t bring much new to the genre, but the cast makes it an entertaining enough affair that it is worth a watch if a fan of them. The film is a remake of the 1981 film of the same name, which […]
