Film Review: ‘Suburbicon’ Starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac

Posted: October 27, 2017 at 8:25 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s time to move out Last week, I gave the Michael Fassbender-led “thriller” The Snowman a ZERO STAR rating (see my review here), citing that I could not tell if it was failing in its attempt to be a serious crime drama or successful in its attempt to be a hilarious, intentionally cheesy detective film […]

Review: ‘The Great Wall’ Starring Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe

Posted: February 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Avoid this wall if at all possible. Matt Damon’s latest film, The Great Wall, may have the look and feel of a Hollywood blockbuster. It cost a reported $150 million to make, but take it from me, the actor’s latest is a dud. It’s a shame the film is not exciting or interesting, as it […]

Movie Review: ‘Elysium’ Starring Matt Damon, Sharlto Copley, Jodie Foster

Posted: August 8, 2013 at 7:00 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Unless you’re South African or were a huge fan of Nike’s Crab commercial, there was probably a pretty good chance that before 2009, you’d never heard of Neill Blomkamp.

Brand New Trailer For ‘The Bourne Legacy’ Starring Jeremy Renner

Posted: May 31, 2012 at 5:05 pm   /   Local, Movie Trailers

I am going to make a bold statement.  I am comfortable enough in my manhood to say this.  I have a huge man-crush on Jeremy Renner.  It’s out there, and now I can’t take it back.  The man is just a complete badass, and I want to just sit in a bar, watch any sporting […]
