126: ‘Pan’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund

Pan /pan/: verb 1. (informal) To criticize (someone or something) severely. I don’t care if your movie is about a flying boy. When you name your movie Pan you’re pretty much inviting derision. When you make a crappy movie about a flying boy…well, even more so. Bad effects, bad screenplay, bad acting…it’s veritable cornucopia of […]

Country Strong is a mess of a film with a horrendous script that goes nowhere, has no character depth, and feels like elaborate audition tapes for Paltrow and Meester’s potential music careers. The film follows Kelly Canter, a country music superstar, who is on the road to recovery in rehab when she is checked out […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: TRON: Legacy

by zac / Published: December 17, 2010 at 4:30 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local

TRON: Legacy returns the 80’s property to the screen with incredible visuals, a magnificent score, fantastic 3-D, inventive action, and an attempt at sci-fi world building that is ambitious and interesting but falls a bit short of being entirely clear or fascinating. Picking up 20 or so years after the original film, Flynn had gone […]
