Movie Review: ‘Ted’ is Furry, Foul, and a Lot of Fun

Posted: June 29, 2012 at 6:56 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

It is so true: what happens to the magical toy or stuffed animal that comes to life in the cute and cuddly children’s films? Not just a year or two after the movie takes place – but nearly three decades later. That question, proposed by Seth McFarlane and executed in true Family Guy spirit, is […]

Movie Review: ‘Ted’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, and Mila Kunis

Posted: June 29, 2012 at 12:00 am   /   Featured, Film, Local

Sometimes, you just gotta have dessert. Now, I love food, as anyone who’s seen me can attest. I love Italian, burgers, seafood, just about anything. If I ever met a woman who’d willingly make me lasagna or filet mignon on a daily basis, I’d propose. Sometimes, though, the simplest dessert will hit the spot. And […]

January is not exactly known to be a great month for films.  Studios dump a lot of junk this month.  All of the talk is on awards season so a lot of these films fly under the radar.  But some of these little titles might be diamonds in the rough.  Let’s not forget that “Hostel” […]

Sam Worthington Taking Another Sci-Fi Adventure

Posted: June 6, 2011 at 9:12 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

With TERMINATOR SALVATION, AVATAR, and CLASH OF THE TITANS, Sam Worthington was looking like the new “it” action star for studios to turn to.  The problem was that two out of three of those films were not good, and I personally think AVATAR is over-rated.  Since then, Worthington has starred in two smaller films, THE […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: The Fighter

Posted: December 17, 2010 at 3:50 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local

The Fighter is a fine character study mixed in with a nice little true life sports movie that I can’t help but feel didn’t reach its potential or bar set by its peers. Following the last attempt of Mickey Ward to win a boxing title we dive into the people around him and shape him […]
