‘Machete Kills’: The Border Strikes Back (Movie Review)

I have a lot to say about Machete Kills, the latest Mexploitation film from director Robert Rodriguez.  A lot of it may be negative, as the film, overall, tries too hard, despite having plenty of ideas and a wonderful ensemble cast, consisting of anyone who apparently had a free weekend at some point to come […]

‘Machete Kills’ & Gets Laid Doing So…Again! (Movie Review)

Machete Kills represents everything that’s wrong with Hollywood, sexploitation, extreme gore, bad dialogue, ridiculous plot and action sequences…you name it.  But why do I love it so much?!  Because it’s so much God d@mn fun!  That’s why!  If you can’t let go and have a fun time with a Machete flick, then you’re a robot!  […]

Ruby Sparks Lights Up Blu-ray On Oct. 30th

From the directors of Little Miss Sunshine comes a “charming and delightful” (Marshall Fine, Huffingtonpost.com) romantic comedy starring Paul Dano and writer-actress Zoe Kazan.  Struggling with writer’s block and a lackluster love life, once-famous novelist Calvin (Dano) creates a beautiful fictitious character named Ruby (Kazan) who inspires him. But not only does this bring his […]

‘Ruby Sparks’ A Little Too Much

I guess I could have liked this film a little bit more were certain things handled differently.  Falling somewhere in between Stranger Than Fiction and Weird Science, Ruby Sparks is a comedy-drama with a dash of the fantastical that involves a writer literally creating a dream girl out of his own typewritten words.  The concept […]

Madonna: Truth or Dare (Blu-ray Review)

Come on!  Show some love for the “Material Girl.”  If Gene Siskel gave it “Two Thumbs Up!,” then you know this “rock doc” has to be good, right?  Right!  Madonna has sold more than 300 million albums worldwide and is the top-selling female artist of all-time.  And it’s only befitting for me, being the biggest […]

Frida (Blu-ray Review)

2002’s Frida would be Salma Hayek’s passion project finally come to fruition after so many years of rejections. She obviously had to pay her dues and build herself up as an actress and producer to get this done. Just because you’re hot in this town doesn’t mean you can always get what you want. It […]

Haywire’s a Misfire

Haywire’s protagonist, Mallory Kane, played by statuesque Mixed Martial Artist brawler Gina Carano, looks a lot like a younger version of America’s undisputed girl next door, Sandra Bullock.  Too bad in her leading “lady” debut, she has all the charm of the door.  Not that any of this will matter to moviegoers not burned out […]

‘Haywire’ Is Streamlined, Offbeat, And Brutal

Once again, the month of January has actually managed to deliver some disposable fun, this time in the form of an action thriller from director Steven Soderbergh.  Haywire falls into the director’s category of more mainstream, but it certainly boasts a strong cast and enough offbeat qualities to make it stand out a bit.  Of […]

Gerard’s Top 10 FILMS of 2011

As promised, here is my Top 10 FILM list for 2011. I actually had to scramble in compiling this list, because there was one movie that I needed to see before my deadline and I was confident that it would go on my list. Did it, though? That’s what you’re going to have to read […]

Many Will Be Creeped Out With ‘The Skin I Live In’

The Skin I Live In is a twisted suspense thriller that takes an arthouse approach to a mad scientist story.  Leave it to Spanish director Pedro Almodovar to take all of the various trademarks of his usual types of films (strong uses of color, strong female characters, themes involving desire, passion, and family) and apply […]

Shrek Origins: ‘Puss In Boots’

The phrase “less is more” comes up a lot when dealing with particular characters that people tend to love.  In Shrek 2, the character of Puss in Boots was first introduced and became an immediate favorite to many.  Given that character’s popularity and the fact that DreamWorks Animation has decided to milk Shrek for all […]
