Movie Review: Disney-Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Misses the Target

Posted: June 22, 2012 at 8:04 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

There is no doubt that Pixar has set the bar high. There was a time where it seemed like they couldn’t lose, releasing film after film that would become an instant classic. From the first Toy Story movie until Toy Story 3, every movie was received with almost no complaints from critics, with the exception […]

How Did ‘Rock of Ages’ and ‘That’s My Boy’ Do Against Last Week’s Top Films At The Box Office?

Posted: June 17, 2012 at 1:22 pm   /   Local, Movie News

This week’s two big releases had enough star power to propel them to the top of the box office, but did the word of mouth on previous weeks releases keep them from making money? Rock of Ages had the draw of Tom Cruise, “classic” 80’s music, and a built in audience from the stage show. […]

I Love Posters: Featuring “The Loved Ones”, “Moonrise Kingdom”, “The Raven” and more

Posted: March 12, 2012 at 4:17 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I love posters.  Just like the above title suggests.  Some posters are especially terrible.  Some posters are beyond awesome.  Unfortunately, I am quickly running out of space on my walls for all the posters I have now.  Which only means one thing: I need a bigger room for all my cool movie stuff.  Or just […]

Review: Disney-Pixar’s ‘Cars 2’ Starring Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine

Posted: June 24, 2011 at 4:26 pm   /   Local, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

As a child I was a constant source of academic disappointment to my parents; a perennial underachiever. I didn’t get bad grades, mind you. I was solid B-student. Sure, I could have gotten an “A” with a modicum of effort but if I could pull a “B” (or the occasional “C”) with little to no […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Cars 2

Posted: June 24, 2011 at 12:05 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

Cars 2 is fun, funny, fast paced, and an exciting spy movie that improves upon the original Cars and has fun with the genre its playing in; while turning in some quality set pieces that a lot of action movies wish they had. The original Cars has grown on me every time I’ve seen it […]

Movie Review — Pixar’s CARS 2 Starring Owen Wilson, Michael Caine, and Larry the Cable Guy

Posted: June 24, 2011 at 12:01 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

Pixar has created a lot of outstanding films.  The TOY STORY trilogy, THE INCREDIBLES, and RATATOUILLE are absolute classics for me.  Other Pixar films I have not loved as much.  I personally felt that A BUG’S LIFE, MONSTERS INC, and FINDING NEMO were a little too kid friendly.  Nothing wrong with it, but I just […]

BRAND NEW BANNERS FOR CARS 2 AND TRANFORMERS 3

Posted: April 17, 2011 at 7:13 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Two of the biggest films of the summer have just released new banners promoting their films.  And I must say, they are pretty cool. I am not a fan of the TRANSFORMERS series.  The first one was extremely disappointing for me especially after reading all the fanboys geek out about it in reviews.  Then, as […]

Tim’s Favorite Films of 2010 Part 2

Posted: January 7, 2011 at 2:40 pm   /   Film, Local

Click here to read Part 1. 6.  Tangled – I love the classic Disney animated musicals.  They are some of my favorite films.  While I did enjoy The Princess and the Frog, it was not quite the return to great animated films that Disney was hoping for.  Tangled was a film I had absolutely no […]
