Review: Les Miserables (2012)

***** When I was twelve years old, I was talking to my aunt about movies (the only subject I seem to be able to talk about), and I remember her saying that she wanted to see a large-scale, multi-million dollar production of  Boublil and Schönberg’s musical, Les Míserables. And, of course, being twelve years old, I did […]

Movie of the Week: The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

***** A reboot sounded like a horrible idea, didn’t it? After Sam Raimi redefined the superhero genre with his adaptation of a particular comic book superhero, Spider-Man (2002) became the standard that all comic book films had to live up to. And when he released Spider-Man 2 (2004), it seemed that the genre could not be bettered. And then […]

An Unfortunate Occurance

Hello, my dear readers!   I want to let you know that I recently had my computer crashed. So I have had to furnish a new one, which I still have yet to get fully running. I want to apologize for the break in posts. It’s been a long time since I could post, but […]

One of Those Great Little Scenes: A Time to Kill (1996)

This is an older movie, not as widely known as other films, and normally I wouldn’t say that Matthew McConaughey is often a good actor. But this scene is one of the most dramatic 5 minutes I’ve watched. In this scene, the lawyer Jake (McConaughey) presents his closing argument for his client (Samuel L. Jackson) who murdered the men who murdered his daughter. Be warned, this could be considered graphic.

Review: The Avengers (2012)

***** In 2007, Marvel Studios’ smash hit Iron Man totally demolished its box office competitors, as well as changed superhero movies forever. And for good reason. It was wonderful and totally exhilarating. But what Iron Man did besides change a genre was set the stage for a much larger adventure, one that would be built up for years to […]

Review: Immortals (2011)

***** Throughout the years, Hollywood has tried to harness the creativity, suspense, and excitement of the mythological tales of the ancient Greeks. Gods, Titans, and there affairs with beings and creatures both mortal and immortal have been adapted and re-envisioned several times over, some succeeding, others not so much. Immortals is one of the few […]
