Bangkok Dangerous Review

I don’t understand why someone would want to remake their own movie ten years after the original came out, especially when the original was a good film.  But, apparently driven by this inexplicable desire are the Pang Brothers, the Chinese twins who directed “The Eye”, its sequels and “Who Is Running?”  These guys have made…

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…
