Review — Transformers

July 3, 2007


Of the many popular cartoon franchises from my childhood, Transformers was not one of my favorites. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it, but I never got into as much as other people my age. Now here we are twenty-something years later and Transformers is making a comeback on the big-screen. Honestly, I started out as a skeptic of the project but as more and more information came out about it the more excited I got. There is something about seeing a little piece of your childhood, whether it was your favorite or not, on the big-screen after all these years that you can’t help but love. So was this movie “more than meets the eye?”


Review — Live Free or Die Hard

July 2, 2007


Yippee-ki-yay, moth…..well you know how it goes. It’s time to get excited fans, Bruce Willis has returned to his role as John McClane in Live Free or Die Hard but can it live up to all the hype? I decided to find out for myself and I ended up being surprised. Pleasantly surprised.


Review — Ratatouille

June 30, 2007


It’s hard not to be excited whenever this Pixar brings a new feature film to theaters. The company has been an animation powerhouse ever since their very first feature, Toy Story, and they’ve continued with that same amount of momentum without losing any steam along the way. (And no, I’m not counting Cars. I know a lot of people didn’t like it but I don’t count it only because I haven’t seen it.) That brings us to the present day and the release of their 8th feature Ratatouille. It’s only a matter of time before the mighty fall, but today is not that day and I’m wondering if it ever come will for Pixar. To put it simply, this film is good. (more…)

Review — 1408

June 23, 2007


What I know of Stephen King is that he does good work. And when properly adapted, his stories make really fantastic movies. At a time where horror movies consist of horny, undersexed teens and gratuitous scenes of violence comes 1408, the latest in the legacy of King adaptations. But is it good? Let me answer that by imposing my own question. Pardon my phrasing, but have you ever been mind raped? I know that sounds a little awkward, but thats exactly what this movie does to you, but it’s not really as bad as it sounds. Really. Let me explain.


Review — Surf’s Up

surfs up

That’s right, another movie about penguins. Should you be excited? I think so.  Surf’s Up is movie that is obviously written for children, but I have to be honest and admit I also had a great time watching it, too. I found it to be a funny and very charming movie.


Review — Ocean’s Thirteen

June 9, 2007


It’s been three years since their last caper, but Danny Ocean (George Clooney) and his gang are back in Ocean’s Thirteen. This time the job isn’t about love or money, but revenge, plain and simple revenge. (more…)

Review: Hot Fuzz

June 5, 2007

Writing duo Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, who is also the films director, are back after their last big outing together, Shaun of the Dead. After seeing Shaun of the Dead, and loving it, I had high hopes going into this film. And I wasn’t disappointed. (more…)
