Amelia Review

  “Amelia” is the story of Amelia Earhart portrayed by Hilary Swank, who you may know at the… OMG, I’m bored just thinking about it. This is the most boring biopic of any I’ve seen.  From the first line I was bored.  And there’s no reason to be bored.  It’s Amelia Earhart, known for having…

Good Hair Review

  If you want to see Good Hair and you don’t live in a predominantly Black neighborhood you have to go to a predominantly Black neighborhood. This review will reflect my “Black Experience” (Version 2.0 – I took Intro To Black Experience when I taught Head Start in Milwaukee in 1990).    The film was…

New Moon Review

Ugh!   I got the first Twilight. I liked it. I’m not in the desired demographic, but I get it. It’s a sexy teen vampire romance. Who wouldn’t like that? Hot vampire Edward Cullen is a bad boy. He thirsts for his girlfriend’s blood. That’s the ultimate bad boy.   But this movie, the second…

2012 Review

  When you watch a movie like 2012, the last thing on the studio’s mind is movie reviews.  They just don’t matter.  So what can I say about 2012 other than the fact that it was absurdly entertaining to watch a movie made inside a computer by a director who has the emotional development of…

Precious Review

    I just walked out of the theater and in the light, cold rain, back to my Radisson Hotel off the 75 freeway in Dallas.  I’m a little uneasy about this film.  Not because it wasn’t good, because it was a great movie.  It was the subject matter and the ugly, angry reality of…

Brothers Review

This film looked interesting from the moment I saw the trailer. Toby Maguire plays Capt. Sam Cahill, father of two daughters, husband to Grace Cahill. His brother, Tommy, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, has just gotten out of jail, while Sam is sent off to Afghanistan. While there, Sam’s helicopter goes down, and word is sent back home that he is dead. Tommy sort of fills the gap of watching over Grace and the little girls. Then Sam comes home, but he’s pretty messed up because of the things he suffered in the war.

 

Ninja Assassin Review

  I was really excited to see this movie.  Some cool ninja on ninja action and nonstop impossible martial arts nonsense.  I was so there.  Well, I was there.  I wish the movie had come with me.  I wish I had seen the movie in my head that I had pieced together from the trailer. …

The Road Review

If you want a Holiday, family-fun giggle fest then boy do you need to see The Road! And by family fun I mean a horrific, post-apocalyptic future that makes you want to stand in a bucket of water and chew on plugged-in Christmas tree lights. It’s about as funny as Meet the Fockers but they’re…
