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…

Push Review

Super powers, secret government agencies, Hong Kong– I’m in. Also, I couldn’t review “The International” as Mike Schmidt beat me to it. That sonofabitch! So ok, let’s see the guy from the Quatro Fantastico (they put the 4 first in Brazil) and Dakota Fanning get crazy. The film is about Chris Evans who saw his…

Defiance Review

James Bond travels back through time to fight the Nazis and their pals. All right! Well that isn’t exactly what this film is but I liked it anyway. Daniel Craig plays a man who chooses to fight in a true story that is being skipped by Oscar’s buzz parade. Listen up “Valkyrie”: THEY ALL HAD…

Knowing Review

I would of gotten this review up sooner but I have an aversion to writing about bullshit. Well, the trailer looked good. And it started out interesting, but then agendas started to rear their crazy beaks and it all went to hell. Literally. Maybe if you’re on a plane this film can pass the time…

State of Play Review

“State of Play” is a competent movie. Decent script, good direction and a solid cast. I was interested in the story throughout my viewing. Viewing? What am I some pompous art critic? Someone please smash a glass of white wine on my head and jam some brie (the most pretentious cheese) in my yap hole.…

Angels and Demons Review

I heard some reviews of this film called it “slow” and “boring”. Well if chasing mystical secret societies around Rome trying to prevent clergy murders is boring then call me slow. ‘Cause I’m all about Professor Hanks solving historical mysteries. I liked the first one and this was a nice follow up. Hanks reprises his…

Wolverine Review

Wolverine is a good start to the summer film season. Not the most amazing film I’ve ever seen, but entertaining. I’m sure some comic book nerds are going to cry heresy, but this film does the job as far as popcorn flicks go. It gives the whole beginning from Logan’s childhood up to the present…

The Reason Studios Are Afraid Pt. 1

(PART ONE OF TWO) The entertainment industry is changing. Everyone knows that. Even the thickest executive to the most stoned production assistant sees the writing on the wall. Usually when you hear the industry is changing, it’s meaningless execuspeak for wall street earnings reports or it’s an excuse for lowball contract negotiations with writers directors…
