Her Review

When you think about a film that centers around a lonely writer that falls in love with a sophisticated computer operating system, you probably think how silly that idea sounds. But if you think about it in todays current social media context and the way that smart phones have infiltrated our lives, it may not be as absurd as you imagine.

The Last Days On Mars Review

You know, I love the whole sci-fi genre. One of my favorites. And, despite the current over-saturation of zombie oriented fare, I’m a fan of zombies, too. Well, of course The Walking Dead is fine. Of all the zombie stuff going on, that is still great. But we could do with a break otherwise. Unfortunately, The Last Days On Mars, despite a fine cast and production value, is little more than Zombies On Mars.

Nebraska Review

Alexander Payne makes great movies. Election, About Schmidt, Sideways, The Descendents, all directed by Payne. To me, he’s like the Coen Brothers; even their weak movies are better than most other directors good ones. And as far as I’m concerned, Nebraska is no different. It’s more subtle, less like a big Hollywood film than most, but wonderful all the same.

Prisoners Review

Ok, I’m not a parent, but for those of your that are, imagine your kid goes out to play and when you expect them back, they aren’t there.  In fact, they are no where to be found.  Gone.  No idea where they are, how long they’ve been missing, not a trace….How would you feel? What lengths would you go to in order to get answers?

You’re Next Review

Everybody likes to be pleasantly surprised.  And these days, with the horror genre, it’s especially enjoyable.  That sounds weird, to be really happy when a movie that involves bloody gruesome deaths is involved.  Well, weird for those that don’t like horror movies, anyway.  The rest of us just squee for joy at a film that offers us something unique or worthwhile.
