Movie Review: ‘The Avengers’ Starring The Hulk

by Blake Fehl / Published: 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

by allison / Published: 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.

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

As a woman, I’m inclined to bestow immediate praise on the new version of Footloose.

And then that realization kind of scared me, so I had a frank talk […]

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 […]

The Karate Kid

Before I even stepped into the screening, I had an issue with this film:Why is the karate kid doing kung fu?  At one point in the film Taraji P. Henson’s character says something along the lines of karate, kung fu, what’s the difference?  I had thought that maybe this is what the filmmakers thought of […]

Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

by zac / Published: 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 […]
