The sequel to “Transformers,” which blew audiences away in 2007 making $319.2 million in the U.S., ROTF has to follow a tough act. But does the movie live up to the hype and anticipation? The movie starts […]

Year One

Posted: June 18, 2009 at 8:54 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Harold Ramis is back behind the camera for his latest with his new Apatow friends and the result is a intermittently humorous film that is rather mediocre to not funny for over half the film. Oh and Zed are a pair of tribesmen that are quite the pair of failures in their tribe. Zed is […]

Away We Go

Posted: June 12, 2009 at 12:59 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

“Away We Go” is a great example of when to not judge a book by it’s cover. It is being cleverly marketed as an indie comedy similar to the way “Juno” was a year and half ago.  This film maintains a lot of the indie cinema mainstays like indie rock soundtrack, quirky characters, and even […]

Up

To be perfectly honest I thought I was going to enjoy this movie. I have high expectations with Pixar films. However, last years Pixar film Wall-E had such a great trailer that it almost moved me to tears. The trailer for Up was exciting, but didn’t have the same effect. So, yes I thought I […]

The Limits of Control

The latest from Jim Jarmusch is an odd and interesting picture that looks fantastic, has some nice moments, but leaves one scratching their head almost as much as they are enjoying the picture. The film follows and unnamed man who is “on the job” but we are never really led on to what that job […]

Dance Flick

Posted: May 21, 2009 at 9:54 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The latest spoof flick from the Wayans has a success ratio of about 40/60 when it comes to the jokes, but with poor leads and zero story nothing else gives the story a reason to watch a film that will make you laugh less then half the time. Megan is a Julliard wannabe that wasn’t […]

Terminator Salvation

Posted: May 21, 2009 at 1:01 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

McG’s entry into the Terminator franchise is an action packed spectacle with paper thin characters and story, so depending on your tastes you might get a lot or nothing out of the picture. The film opens in 2003 with a guilt filled inmate donating his body to the Cyberdyne company in telling him that he […]
