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…

Lakeview Terrace

“Dark Knight”. The last good movie I saw was “Dark Knight”. “Lakeview Terrace” is a stupid and predictable as I thought it would be. I’m so mad I wanted to Palm Strike the projectionist for hurting my eyes. I wanted to Palm Strike everyone involved in this film. Because this film wasted 2 hours of…

Rock n Rolla Review

I was all set to see “W.” but in my heart I knew it would be stupid. It looked like a low budget made-for-tv movie complete with bad wigs. So I changed my ticket and saw guy Richie’s latest limey gangster flick. After reading Mancini’s “W.” review I know I made the right choice. Guns,…

Body of Lies Review

Riddley Scott’s new film with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crow is an okay film. Seriously, nothing has blown me away since Dark Knight. I know I say that in every review now but c’mon! It’s not my fault. Everyone in this is a good actor. Not sure why Russell Crow put on all the weight…

The Changeling Review

Clint Eastwood is a really good director and this is a really good film. Riveting performance by Angelina Jolie and supporting cast makes it even better. I’m so glad oscar season is starting because the late summer/early fall is a train wreck. This film kept me interested the whole time, always wanting to see more.…

Quantum of Solace Review

I like the idea of showing a darker Bond. A Bond who doesn’t have gadgets and catch phrases. Just brooding rage and deadly precision. But this film is a little slow at points. Daniel Craig is a great 007, but Quantum was just ok. The film picks up right after were “Casino Royale” ended which…

Frost/Nixon Review

When I see a biopic I always ask, “Is this how it really went down?” In “Frost/Nixon” I vowed to renew my membership to the Museum of TV and Radio so I can watch the actual interviews. Also want to listen to as many of the Nixon Whitehouse tapes as possible. I want to do…

Seven Pounds Review

a I’m not sure why this film is not getting more Oscar buzz. I liked it. Will Smith does a nice job. Rosario Dawson is showing more of her range. “Seven Pounds” is a good film. The trailers are mysterious and so is the first hour of the film. Maybe that’s what has kept the…

Valkyrie Review

I lived in Germany for a year when I was kid. My dad had a research grant so we left Madison, WI and moved to Munich. Germans by and large are a bunch of humorless bureaucrats. Living up to all the stereotypes. Some of them were nice loving people. None of them had English accents.…
