A Ritchie In ‘King Arthur’s Court (Movie Review)

Through thick and thin, I seem to want to stand by Guy Ritchie. Okay, so maybe Swept Away took things a bit too far, but I’ve been happy to support Ritchie from his London gangster film days into his more commercial fair. I dig the man’s style and have found his hyper-kinetic filmmaking approach to […]

‘The Finest Hours’ Is All Predictable Heroics (Movie Review)

Watching The Finest Hours made me think of how commendable it was to see Disney produce a historical disaster drama about a daring Coast Guard rescue. It is just too bad that all the visual effects used to convey a sense of scale were not enough to ever make the stakes feel that high. While […]

This Pulpy Detective-Horror Story Tries To ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ (Movie Review)

The biggest question I have about Deliver Us from Evil, a film that mixes a police procedural plot with exorcism, is why have it released on July 4th weekend?  I understand counter programming and all, but a grimy, R-rated horror feature does not exactly seem like the choice for Independence Day, regardless of producer Jerry […]

‘Lone Survivor’ Wants To Make Every Bullet Count (Movie Review)

Strap On Your Powdered Wig And Get Ready For ‘Closed Circuit’ (Movie Review)

I have to wonder sometimes how much time and consideration is put into the little details, before sending off the finished product and then being tackled by criticisms.  Closed Circuit has plenty going for it at first glance.  The film features a top notch cast, who are all putting forth reasonably good work as the […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2011 & Other Yearly Wrap-Up Stuff

To me, 2011 was a pretty unusual year.  I say that because I found there to be an unusual amount of great films that came out in both the realm of mainstream feature films and the realm of art house and independent features.  This year, like any year, had its share of duds as well, […]

Deadly Little ‘Hanna’ Delivers Style and Thrills

There is a lengthy, one-take sequence in the middle of Hanna that is a showcase for clever camera work, a solid central performance, intrigue, and a climactic action sequence that delivers on stylish, visceral impact.  All of the descriptors for this scene can be used to describe Hanna as a whole, with another huge shout […]

The Time Traveler’s Wife (Blu-ray Review)

Originally a novel penned by Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife made its big screen debut last autumn.  The film had many waiting with baited breath in hopes that their affinity for the publication would be equally appeased on film.  After all, Niffenegger’s work was a best seller and the film had two big names […]
