‘Friends With Benefits’ Reviewed by a Friend With No Benefits

Posted: July 22, 2011 at 12:00 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Seeing a chick flick is usually comparable to reaching into a mixed bag. On one hand, you have super cheesy, philogynistic Nicholas Sparks-esque films like The Notebook and A Walk to Remember. On the other hand, you have the more (relatively) recent, next-gen films like Love and Other Drugs which tend to throw a bone to the […]

Spotlight of the Week – Mila Kunis

Posted: December 1, 2010 at 1:16 am   /   Film, Local

This week I wanted to focus on an actress that may be getting the wrong kind of attention (or the right kind of attention depending on what kind of a person you are).  Black Swan is getting ready to hit theaters, and the talk of the movie has been either Natalie Portman’s performance or the […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Eat Pray Love

Posted: August 13, 2010 at 1:51 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local

Eat Pray Love is a dull and poorly executed picture that meanders, is no where near as good as it thinks it is, and fails to engage or fill us with emotion almost every step of the way. Liz Gilbert isn’t happy in life and when she decides she can’t take it any more she […]

Eat Pray Love

Posted: August 13, 2010 at 1:46 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Julia Robert’s latest film, “Eat Pray Love,” is adapted from a best selling novel of the same name. While falling asleep when reading is usually considered acceptable with a book, it isn’t exactly the affect you want your movie to have on the audience. Unfortunately, this is that type of movie. Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) […]

Oscar Award Winning Composer Michael Giacchino is Scoring “Let Me In”

Posted: July 11, 2010 at 9:41 pm   /   Local, Movie News

Ever since posting the trailer to the film Let Me In last week, I have heard nothing but shouts of, “It won’t be as good as the original!”.  I’m not a fan of remakes either, especially when the original is so well made. However, there is no denying that the trailer for Let Me In […]

“Let Me In” HD International Trailer Starring Chloe Moretz

If you haven’t seen the phenomenal Swedish film, Let the Right One In, what are you waiting for? It was one of the most celebrated releases a couple years ago, and it was so good that American studios rushed to make a remake for American audiences. I’m not sure this one will be as good, […]

Dear John

Posted: February 4, 2010 at 11:39 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

I was looking forward to seeing Dear John for weeks before seeing the movie, all the time having high hopes. Often times when that’s the case, it doesn’t end up to be as good as you hope.  Most romantic movies are unrealistic, and just cheesy. NOT Dear John. If there was a John and Savannah […]

Nicholas Sparks’ Dear John – Trailer

Posted: October 16, 2009 at 10:18 am   /   Local, Movie News

Dear Channing Tatum, Are you about to show a good performance? After A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints I thought you had it in you, but your last few films have let me down so much. Luckily, you are paired with rising Amanda Seyfried who eclipsing her Mean Girls costars (I’m looking at you Rachel […]
