Movie Review: ‘The Avengers’ Starring The Hulk

Posted: May 4, 2012 at 12:01 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Films like The Avengers pose a bit of a problem for me. On one hand, I want to critique things like plot, character development, lighting, sound, etc. However, every time I leave a movie like this, I forget about those things and end up exclaiming things like, “Holy shit, did you see what the Hulk […]

Movie Review: ‘Extremely Loud’ Is Pretty Quiet

Posted: January 20, 2012 at 7:55 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

I’ve had a hard time writing my review of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – or even beginning it. I worked on a draft, realized it was all wrong, started another draft, pitched that, repeated five more times. I kept feeling like something was missing, but from me, not from the movie. And then I […]

Movie Review: ‘Footloose’ Dances to Same Beats from 1984

Posted: October 14, 2011 at 10:53 am   /   Featured, Film, Local, Movie Reviews

As a woman, I’m inclined to bestow immediate praise on the new version of Footloose. I mean, the only way this movie could appeal to my nostalgic ladyparts even more would be to randomly include neon Lisa Frank art and unicorns. And then that realization kind of scared me, so I had a frank talk […]

Dear Harry: A Love Letter to the Boy Who Lived (and ‘Deathly Hallows: Part 2’ Review)

Posted: July 15, 2011 at 12:01 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Dear Harry Potter: We’ve had a long relationship, you and I. And even though I was a hipster twit and refused to notice you until after a couple of your books were published, I still will miss the way you’ve kept me company late at night for so many years. Because now, it’s time to […]

With the huge popularity of Disney style musicals such as High School Musical, it seemed it was time for a comeback to the story that started them all, Fame. Unfortunately, for those of you who were hoping for the high notes hit by the original, prepare to be disappointed. Fame follows seven students through their […]

Extract

Posted: September 3, 2009 at 11:52 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

The latest from Mike Judge is a big improvement over his last film, Idiocracy, but doesn’t approach the status of his most famous film, Office Space. Judge turns the limelight this time on the boss instead of the worker, and while funny we find out the working man is much funnier. Extract takes us into […]

Tokyo Sonata

Posted: July 8, 2009 at 2:18 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

This Japanese import is an engaging and effective look at the struggle of feeling trapped by a countries traditions and cultures, that minus an odd 20 minutes near the end, is pretty solid all around. The Sasaki’s are an ordinary middle class family living a rather normal existence in modern Japan. Composed of mom, dad, […]

Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

Posted: June 12, 2009 at 12:01 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Tony Scott’s latest with frequent collaborator Denzel Washington is a mediocre affair that is poorly written and can’t even muster much style out of Scott either. Walter Garber is introduced to us as an everyday transit authority civil servant that mans and maintains the New York City subway traffic so that it flows with ease […]
