Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Rango

Posted: March 6, 2011 at 4:55 pm   /   Another Take From Zac, Local

Rango’s story might be a familiar hodgepodge of classic film’s and such, but the title character and the amount of weirdness the film throws at us elevates it to accompany the incredible ILM animation. To call the film is actually almost an understatement. The film constantly borderlines on being inappropriate for children, has some rather […]

Movie Review – “Rango” starring Johnny Depp, Directed by Gore Verbinski

Posted: March 4, 2011 at 6:53 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

When I watched the first trailer for “Rango,” I was immediately captured by the stunning animation. Combine that with Johnny Depp voicing the lead role, and Gore Verbinski at the helm, and I was pretty excited to see what would happen. Unfortunately, the result is a slow-paced kids movie that feels mediocre in the end. […]

Both Frida and Across the Universe had stunning visuals, with clear and bright cinematography. It looks as if her next film based upon the William Shakespeare play, The Tempest, is going to be cut […]

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Posted: July 14, 2010 at 12:01 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is a film inspired by the Disney short featured in “Fantasia.” Although there are some similarities, this story is one that we haven’t seen before. Dave (Jay Baruchel) is a nerdy physics major at NYU. Most of his time is spent studying, and doing scientific experiments. Needless to say, he isn’t the […]

Rango reunites Johnny Depp with his Pirates of the Caribbean director, Gore Verbinski, in a brightly colored animated feature.  When the trailer started I thought, “Oh, here we go, another lame CG animated movie.” My mind was quickly changed when I saw how detailed the world Rango occurs in. The animation looks absolutely brilliant, and […]

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Posted: May 28, 2010 at 1:01 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

I went into the theater skeptical of yet another video game movie.  Not helping my skepticism was that Jake Gyllenhaal was playing the lead in an action film.  To my surprise, Gyllenhaal was not the problem.  In fact, I have to say the whole cast did quite well with the flimsy storyline. Prince of Persia: […]

New “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time” Featurette Featuring Jake Gyllenhaal

Posted: April 9, 2010 at 3:19 pm   /   HD Movie Trailers, Local

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time is yet another of the big summer features that I’m not sold on yet.  First of all, I do like Jake Gyllenhaal, but not in this role. He’s a solid actor, but he doesn’t scream action star.  Although, the biggest thing is he doesn’t look like he should be […]
