Indiana Jones Review

There has been a lot of nerd rumblings that this wasn’t going to be good. I did not care. I think there is still some nerd PTSD from the “Star Wars” prequels that had theaters full of tension. Like when I saw “Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” yesterday. There was a fair…

Network Review

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more.” If you can find a movie from the 70’s more prescient about the world today I’d like to see it. I couldn’t sleep, so I turned on the TV which happened to be on Turner Classic Movies. I watched the end of…

The Happening Review

What the Hell has the Happening to M. Knight? Like watching your favorite ballplayer in a hitting slump, you want him to get back on track. I’m not one of those people who “figured out” “Sixth Sense”. I just loved it. And by the way if you see a movie late in the run after…

Wanted Review

James McAvoy is the dull sad sack of a man who is recruited by a fraternity of assassins to carry out his destiny. McAvoy’s transition from scared mope to highly trained killer almost took too long, but then it made sense. I get annoyed when some regular Joe gets thrown into, or in this case…

The Wackness Review

If Ben Kingsley were a Jedi he would have more power than Yoda. Yeah, you heard me. More understanding of the force he would have. Wackness is a decent little indie film set in the summer of 1994 in New York. It’s about a high school grad that sells weed and doesn’t have much direction…

Dark Knight Review

Anyone who doesn’t like “The Dark Knight” is an idiot. If you can’t get on board with this film then go see “Mama Mia” and stay away from me. You probably liked “Episode 1” and thought Jar Jar was funny and cute. Go away. You’re not welcome here. I was shaking when I left the…

The Rocker Review

Rainn Wilson rocks. He always makes me laugh. Even in spandex. I’ve seen some reviews of this film that weren’t that good, but I liked it. Ok too many bumping the head and bodily fluid jokes. But still funny. Funny lines delivered by funny actors. Maybe I was too close to this film. Maybe since…

Traitor Review

“Traitor” starring Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce is a good movie. Yes, it covers the “blurred lines” theme of undercover agent movies. But this film adds the religious faith aspect to it that makes it a compelling story. Plus Don Cheadle is a very good actor. I saw him once at the Toyota dealership getting…
