Review: We Bought A Zoo (2011)

*****  This one most likely isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you’re looking for a movie to watch on a rainy day. But it’s a good movie for those kinds of days, cloudy days where things just seem hopeless and sad. One of those that you watch to put yourself in a […]

External Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)

I don’t usually do external reviews, but this bit from Ask A Ninja was more priceless than anything I could write about this mess of a film.     Really, nothing more even needs to be said. I think the bucket of chicken line was perfectly descriptive.

Review: Death Race (2008)

*****   Blecchhhh…… can we really say much more?

That, my friends is the effect that  (500) Days of Summer has […]

Review: The Dark Knight (2008)

Movie of the Week: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

***** In the opinion of this writer, it’ s the best fantasy movie ever made. It’s an epic drama filled with iconic heroes, and even more iconic villains. How can we forget the first time we ever heard the Imperial March? Or when we saw our favorite bandit encased in carbonite right in front of […]

Movie of the Week: Titanic (1998)

Titanic is probably the most underrated overrated film in history. Yes, it is a great film. And yes, everyone who actually sits through it will say that. But there are not a whole lot of people who acknowledge all that James Cameron’s masterpiece did for Hollywood an the progression of film (whether the effects be […]
