Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
IronMan (in Film)

'Iron Man' is not only action packed, as expected, but it is also laced with a story that has substance and with some wit and romance added to please all ages.

 

Baby Mama (in Film)

About the best that can be said for this formulaic, instantly-forgettable romp is that it’s above average for an SNL alum vehicle.

 

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (in Film)

A crass, classic, take-the-money-and-run ripoff which squanders a golden opportunity to make a statement about racial profiling, the Patriot Act and the Geneva Conventions in favor of serving up a mindless teensploit laced with shockingly-graphic images.

 

DVD: Charlie Wilson's War (in Film)

Unless somebody’s taking liberties with the truth here, history will one day confirm that all it took to bring an end to the Cold War was the valiant efforts of a party animal who knew his way around Washington well-enough to be unburdened by red tape, bureaucrats or democracy.

 

88 Minutes (in Film)

A comical crime thriller where you’re likely to find yourself more amused by the unintentionally funny goings-on than try to solve the underlying whodunit

Forgetting Sarah Marshall (in Film)

Latest Apatow Teensploit Fails to Measure Up to Recent Offerings

 

Anamorph (in Film)

Though the movie takes its title, Anamorph, from an asexual stage of reproduction in the life of a fungus, don’t expect to find any fungi, I mean fun guys in this lame excuse for graphic displays of vivisection

 

Street Kings (in Film)

Street Kings is a disaster for several simple reasons: a preposterous premise, less credible plot twists, too much gratuitous violence, too many ethnic slurs, an absence of likable characters plus another wooden performance from Keanu Reeves.

 

Smart People (in Film)

A dysfunctional-family drama which might as well have been titled Smart Alecks

 

The Take (in Film)

Leguizamo, along with Rosie Perez, give intense and credible performances in what could easily be a B movie.

 

Jellyfish (in Film)

A surreal adventure which whimsically intertwines the lives of several women whose paths crisscross in present-day Tel Aviv.

 

DVD: There Will Be Blood (in Film)

A turn of the century saga, starring Oscar winner Daniel Day Lewis, ostensibly-inspired by Oil!, the class-conscious novel published by Upton Sinclair back in 1927.

 

My Blueberry Nights(in Film)

The film was not a vehicle for its impressive veteran cast to showcase their talent. The characters were poorly developed and felt one dimensional.
