Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D

Posted: September 10, 2010 at 7:07 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

The Resident Evil franchise has its lovers and haters. I personally loved the first film. I think it stayed true to the concept of the game and the genre, but it deviated itself from the story of the game. Some people are upset with this, but I was happy. The second film felt much more […]

The Hidden Gem – “Brotherhood of the Wolf”

Posted: August 23, 2010 at 11:05 am   /   Film, Local

There are many great foreign language films that have come out over the years. The films that immediately come to mind are “House of Flying Daggers,” “Let the Right One In” and “Pan’s Labyrinth” just to name a few. But with so many films to come out yearly, it’s easy for films to slip under […]

Tim Reviews “The Expendables” Starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li

Posted: August 16, 2010 at 12:53 pm   /   Film, Local

I went into the theater for The Expendables with mixed ideas. I read bad reviews. I read good reviews. I liked certain actors and hated others. I wasn’t really a big fan of the trailers. I thought that it was a film trying to be something that didn’t really exist on the big screen anymore. […]

This week’s film, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, is a film I fell in love with as soon as I saw the trailer. I instantly bought it when it came out and watched it with my brother. I’m not going to lie, the first time I saw it I thought it was […]

Flashback Movie Review: The Shadow (1994)

Posted: August 5, 2010 at 3:28 pm   /   Film, Local

In my opinion, the 1994 movie “The Shadow” starring Alec Baldwin is horribly underrated. Take into account that I never read any pulps or heard any of the radio serials so I don’t know if the movie stayed true to the source material, but I think it is a very fun film. Well for those […]

The Hidden Gem – “Anastasia”

Posted: August 2, 2010 at 12:42 pm   /   Film, Local

This week’s film that is featured will forever be ingrained in my memory forever. First, I love the film, and second, for the story I’m about to tell you. When I was in fourth grade, I was unpopular (which isn’t really a surprise since I was a movie nerd then). I was sitting at the […]

First Impressions: Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch”

Posted: July 27, 2010 at 8:21 am   /   Film, Local

I never thought I would see the day where I was excited to see a movie that starred Vanessa Hudgens. But two things were evident when I finished watching this trailer: Zack Snyder, director, knows how to put together a trailer. The first theatrical trailer for 300 remains my favorite trailer of all time. The […]
