The Brothers Grimsby (Blu-ray Review)

It appears I have very defined limits when it comes to the humor of Sacha Baron Cohen. A lot of his edgy stuff tends to be funny in the moment, but it rarely sticks with me. Obviously that kind of humor works best for him when it’s a mix of candid moments set in reality […]

‘Zoolander 2’ Doubles Down On The Dumb (Movie Review)

Another year, another sequel to a cult-favorite comedy. 15 years after Zoolander served as a light and silly comedy to help people laugh again, following the 9/11 tragedy that occurred weeks earlier, we now have Zoolander 2, which is severely lacking in laughs. The film is full of cameos and gags, but the idea of […]

The Counselor: Unrated Extended Cut (Blu-ray Review)

For film lovers, the idea of putting director Ridley Scott and author Cormac McCarthy together for a film seemed like a grand idea.  Between Scott’s abilities to provide thrilling atmosphere and a compelling depiction of process in his films and McCarthy’s skill for writing about the darkest sides of humanity, while sometimes adding a slight […]

Catch Ridley Scott’s Edge-of-Your-Seat Thriller, “The Counselor,” on February 11!

To be fair, I did not come up with the title of this post nor would I have wanted to write that, that was on the press release e-mail.  That said, while I was initially disappointed in theaters by Ridley Scott’s The Counselor, I am one to pay attention to his extended/director cuts of his […]

Woody Allen Meanders ‘To Rome’

It is kind of fun to reference To Rome with Love as “this year’s Woody Allen film”.  Allen seemingly works non-stop, releasing new films on a near yearly basis and has a pretty strong batting average overall that most other filmmakers would kill to have.  Especially given his creative freedom, Allen has enjoyed plenty of […]

‘Pirates’ Set Sail On Dull ‘Tides’

The last thing you want in a summer blockbuster is to be bored.  Unfortunately, the fun that has previously been a driving point in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise seems to have just about run out.  I suppose giving an opinion on the franchise seems appropriate, given that this is supposedly a new start […]

Captain Jack is Back in Another Swashbuckling Adventure!

Johnny Depp is back as my favorite pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, in the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.  I know a lot of people would rather that they stopped making more sequels after the third movie, but why?  Everyone old and young loves the Pirates movies.  And even though the […]

I Made It Through Sex and the City 2 Unscathed!

Every once in awhile, being a reviewer means you have to see and sit through movies that you really have no interest in (to put it politely).  I accept that.  It comes with the territory and the job title.  Sure I may moan and groan about the film beforehand, but sometimes, just sometimes, you are […]

‘Nine’ Brilliant To The Last

If 2010 proves to be a year scarred by a multitude of bad films (which I don’t think will be the case), I will always have the Broadway-based Nine to make my top ten list.  Starring Daniel Day Lewis as the overworked and oversexed film director Guido Contini, the man is surrounded by a barrage […]
