Movie Review: TREE OF LIFE Directed By Terrence Malick

Posted: June 13, 2011 at 8:17 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

I read a lot about Terrence Malick before seeing TREE OF LIFE.  I had never seen any of his films so I wanted to get a rough idea about what I was getting into.  I learned that this was only his fifth feature length film in 38 years.  I read how he is a very […]

Movie Review: SUPER 8 Starring Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning, and Kyle Chandler

Posted: June 9, 2011 at 11:02 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

Over a year ago when I first saw the teaser for SUPER 8, I immediately got a huge grin on my face.  I was so excited.  I wanted to know why the truck crashed into the train.  I wanted to know why the train was traveling across the country.  I wanted to know what was […]

Review: “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Starring Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz

Posted: May 20, 2011 at 4:45 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

It has been almost eight years since we were introduced to the most recognizable swashbucklers of our time in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. 2003’s ‘Curse of the Black Pearl’ was a smash hit, and in 2006 and 2007 ‘Dead Man’s Chest” and ‘At World’s End’ took us on a fun ride if nothing […]

Sucker Punch

Posted: March 24, 2011 at 10:12 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

I went into this film with a bias.  I will admit.  I thought the trailers looked awesome.  I have loved most of Zak Snyder’s work thus far so I was very excited to see him take on his own original work.  The film was on my list of top ten most anticipated films of the […]

Movie Review: DRIVE ANGRY 3D Starring Nicholas Cage, Amber Heard

Posted: February 25, 2011 at 12:44 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

I have to be honest.  I expected this movie to be awful.  Nothing about what I had seen impressed me.  The shot of a guy throwing an ax at Cage, and it cutting his hair looked ridiculous.  Nicholas Cage and his acting looked ridiculous (which I have come to expect).  The only thing I could […]

Movie Review: HALL PASS Starring Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate

Posted: February 25, 2011 at 12:03 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

I was curious about HALL PASS.  I’m not sure how else to put it.  The trailer looked okay.  The premise definitely showed promise.  But I am not a huge Owen Wilson supporter, and the Farrelly brothers haven’t done anything good since 1998 with THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY.  I left the film having mixed feelings on […]

Movie Review: I AM NUMBER FOUR Starring Alex Pettyfer, Diana Agron

Posted: February 17, 2011 at 11:49 pm   /   Film, Local

I had zero hope for I AM NUMBER FOUR.  I saw the trailer, and immediately dismissed it as teenage action that would be far too teen angsty.  Now seeing the film, I can say that I was partially true.  The film is very much a teen action flick that high school kids will most likely […]

Movie Review: “The Rite” Starring Anthony Hopkins

Posted: January 28, 2011 at 5:13 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

I was nervous about The Rite months ago when I saw the trailer.  I feel like the exorcism genre has really brought anything new and fresh to the table in some time.  And I felt that Anthony Hopkins was playing a character we have seen before which there is nothing wrong with because he does it well.  But […]

Season of the Witch

Posted: January 7, 2011 at 10:09 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

There is one of two camps that you fall into when going into a Nicholas Cage film.  There are those that prepare themselves for the worst and those that are expecting a fun and mindless entertaining film.  Though there are about enough films that I can count on one hand that I actually enjoy the […]
