The Unborn Review

So this movie, “The Unborn”, looked like it could be pretty creepy, and the idea of a girl that was a twin whose brother died in the womb but was haunting her and trying to be born was an idea with some promise.  Unfortunately, David S. Goyer chose to add a bunch of other stuff,…

Oscar Preview 2009

  Well, here we are again, folks.  It’s Oscar time.  It was a big year in 2008 for movies, no doubt about it.  So much so, that I wonder if some of the summer blockbusters will have a chance at nominations.  Let’s see who might show up in the Academy’s sights for consideration this year.…

Benjamin Button Review

  Ever wonder what it would be like if you lived life in reverse?   If we started old and then got younger as the years passed?  Our minds would indeed grow as they normally would, growing wiser as the years passed, but our bodies would become more mobile, stronger, and useful with each passing year. …

Gran Torino review

I’ll start right off by saying I’m a fan of Clint Eastwood.  I suppose I always have been.  From his epic westerns at first, then even things like “Play Misty For Me” and “The Beguiled”, and of course the Dirty Harry series, too.  I’d also recommend a movie called “A Perfect World”.  Not many people…

The Punisher War Zone Review

Here at ComedyFilmNerdsdotcom.com we have established the obvious:  we’re nerds.  And it’s often assumed that nerds love comic books.  And you know what?  We’re OK with that here because with us, it happens to be true.  But if there were one thing I could say about the movie “Punisher: War Zone”, it would be that…

Australia Review

I can honestly say that not a lot of filmmakers are making the kinds of movies they made in the ‘40s’ and 50’s anymore.  I don’t think anyone would disagree.  You know, those old school sweeping epics with action, romance and drama?  Well, apparently director Baz Luhrman felt the same way.  So he made “Australia”.…

Quantum of Solace Review

James Bond is more than just a franchise of action films.  It’s an institution, a kind of legacy.  And every fan expects a certain level of quality.  Oh, sure, everyone has their favorite Bond era.  Most consider Sean Connery the best ever.  I agree.  Some like the Pierce Brosnan, some enjoy the kinda goofy fun…

Role Models Review

Comedies these days can often fall into the dumb, teen humor that involves lots of drinking and fart jokes.  And comedies with kids in them can often be insipid or have too much of the sugary sweet, cute factor.  But now we have one that is actually funny, and has some edge, without being laden…

Little Big Top Review

Sometimes a movie comes along and you really want to see it because the premise is almost too good to be true.  Yeah, I know; as if that’s unusual these days.  But “Little Big Top” is a movie I wanted to like more than I actually did. Sid Haig (“House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s…
