Wristcutters: A Love Story

by zac / Published: November 4, 2007 at 11:05 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Great title, I will definitely give it that. Unfortunately the movie couldn’t live up to the great title that the movie hopes to be. Now, the movie isn’t by any means bad. It just sits in limbo, along with the characters in this unknown universe in the film, almost becoming pretty good but never really […]

American Gangster

by zac / Published: November 3, 2007 at 1:30 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Keys to a great movie? Ridley Scott, check. Denzel Washington, check. Russell Crowe, check. Larger than life and wouldn’t believe it if it wasn’t true story, check. Now all of these are thrown into one movie, and what comes out is absolutely fantastic. I do not have a single complaint about this movie and can […]

Control

by zac / Published: November 3, 2007 at 12:57 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This is one of those movies that comes out of no where and smacks you in the face with how good it is. Control, by first time feature director Anton Corbijn (veteran of many music videos), knocks the rise and fall of Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis. The movie starts with Curtis finding his […]

Lars and the Real Girl

by zac / Published: October 31, 2007 at 9:39 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Ryan Gosling is fantastic in this quirky, silly, and a bit ridiculous coming of age story. Lars is lonely, damaged, quiet, shy, and avoids human contact pretty much whenever possible. He in a normal job, living in the garage of the family house which is occupied by his brother(Paul Schneider) and his expecting wife(Emily Mortimer). […]

Gone Baby Gone

by zac / Published: October 31, 2007 at 9:12 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Another movie dealing with the loss of a child, this one excels on pretty much every level. Gone Baby Gone is an adaptation of the Dennis Lehane(Mystic River) novel by Ben Affleck in his directorial debut. I have always been a fan of Affleck and I am glad that he does a great job here […]

Reservation Road

by zac / Published: October 31, 2007 at 8:50 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This Oscar hopeful unfortunately falls short. Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Ruffalo star in this serious drama about the effect of a hit and run can have on the two parties involved; the grieving family and the runner. Ruffalo plays the runner and i good as always. Playing the tortured soul to a great effect, we […]

The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D

by zac / Published: October 21, 2007 at 10:10 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

I’ll keep this one short. The Tim Burton produced stop-motion animated musical is a classic and one of the best of it’s kind. Jack Skelington tries to convince Halloweentown to throw Christmas instead of Halloween so Jack can feel something new in his life. I view this as a Christmas movie, but people celebrate this […]

The Darjeeling Limited

by zac / Published: October 21, 2007 at 3:37 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

I need to start off this review with a disclaimer, I love Wes Anderson’s films, love, love, love them, and I love this one too, but I will try to be unbiased and will write this review with average movie fan and not as a Wes Anderson fanatic.So The Darjeeling Limited is a train, and […]

Dumbledore is Gay; not that there’s anything wrong with that.

by zac / Published: October 21, 2007 at 3:08 pm   /   Local, Movie News

Apparently when reviewing the script for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince J.K. Rowling came across a change from her book that she couldn’t let pass; similar to Kreacher almost getting cut from Order of the Phoenix. The writers added a past love interest for Dumbledore, in flashbacks, and Rowling sent them a note […]

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

What we have here is an amazing, gripping, and fantastically produced piece of cinema, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is one of, if not the best, film I have seen all year. Now there is a lot of time left in the year, and a lot of good looking movies […]
