Babylon A.D. Review

Oh, I’m sure everyone is going to say, “Told ya so, Neil!”, when I say that this movie was stinky.  Not that I didn’t have my doubts as it was, it’s just that I heard there were a lot of problems between the director and the production company.  Apparently after going over budget and a…

Death Race Review

This movie offers some of the emptiest calories ever put on screen.  But that isn’t always a bad thing.  Indeed, you will not gain anything constructive from seeing “Death Race”.  You won’t see any Oscar nominated performances, you won’t see “the 21st Century’s “Citizen Kane”, you won’t learn a new language or certainly get any…

Mirrors Review

Editor’s note:  There are some spoilers below.  But really, do you care? As I suspected, “Mirrors” is another American remake of an Asian, in this case, Korean, horror film.  And as in the case of many of the other remakes of Korean or Japanese horror films, this just doesn’t feel right somehow.  Not to say…

Pineapple Express Review

You’d think I’d be getting tired of Judd Apatow movies by now.  Well, I suppose some people are.  Apparently, I’m not.  And I’m no stoner by any stretch of the imagination, but “Pineapple Express” is funny. Dale Denton, 25 year old process server, doesn’t aspire to very much except dating his high school girlfriend, smoking…

The Dark Knight Review

Here it is.  This is what we’ve all been waiting for all summer; for the past year or so, in fact.  And I could sit here and blabbidy-blab endlessly about little things and build up to something, but screw that.  That would just drive you all crazy.  And I can barely contain myself as it…

Baghead Review

When I heard the name of the film was “Baghead”, it struck me a certain way.  The film itself is not what my mind first considered.  That’s certainly not to say I was disappointed, it merely says that my mind will often go places other peoples won’t.  But I suppose that, too, shouldn’t be much…

Wall-E Review

Once again, it’s Pixar FTW!  I said in my Summer Preview that I like Pixar and I like robots.  This movie shows you exactly why.  In the right hands, robots can be so much more than mechanical automatons that do human bidding.  In fact, even the ones that are intended for such menial labor can…

Incredible Hulk Review

Ang Lee’s Hulk movie wasn’t so good.  I didn’t love it, in fact, like most people, I didn’t even really like it much.  (Ang Lee, stick to realistic human drama, please.)  It was trying to be more than a comic book movie.  It had this weird story about Bruce Banner’s father, and these weird, existential…
