Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2013 And Other Odds & Ends

It was a big year, but somehow I managed to put together a list of my favorite films of 2013.  I have to say that this was once again not the easiest list to put together.  Theatrically, I have seen 150+ films this year, so there were a lot of films to consider and figure […]

‘12 Years A Slave,’ A Powerful Memoir Skillfully Brought To Life (Movie Review)

It can be a challenge to express why certain dramas work on a viewer more than others.  A film like 12 Years A Slave, which is based on the true life chronicle of man kidnapped and forced into slavery, could function on a level that dwells purely on misery and offers little beyond sadness for […]

2012: The Year We Lost Contact

I honestly had no intentions of ever seeing the latest disaster flick, Roland Emmerich’s 2012, on the big screen.  Had it not been for the recommendation to do so from fellow reviewer Bob Ignizio, then I probably would not have.  I actually remember telling my co-worker Sandy this past Friday that there’s no way I […]

2012: Disasterpiece Theater

2012 is completely ridiculous trash that turns massive destruction and the deaths of billions of people (including, by implication, just about everyone watching it) into fodder for entertainment.   Of course the disaster movies of the seventies did the same thing on a smaller scale, and who can resist The Towering Inferno or Earthquake?
