No Country For Old Men review

Sometimes I wonder if the Coen brothers aren’t the best film makers around today.  Tim Burton is up there, too.  But, film for film, these guys make real movies with real characters. Even a not so good Coen movie is better than the usual Hollywood shite out there, except maybe for that one with George…

In Bruges review

I was planning on seeing a movie this weekend that I though would be bad because they are so much more fun to write about; maybe something like “Jumper”.  That can’t be good, right?  But I was out of town most the weekend so my choices were limited to something after 10 pm.  “In Bruges”…

Juno review

What hath “Napoleon Dynamite” wrought?  Well, if you’re like me and enjoy smaller, more independent films (whatever “independent” means these days), then you’ll generally enjoy the quirky, offbeat nature of these movies.  The characters aren’t as weird in this, however. But “Juno” is clearly born of that ilk, and may even owe much of its…

The Orphanage review

I used to be a huge horror movie fan as a kid.  I loved scary movies.  I even enjoyed some of the slasher stuff in the 80’s, like Friday the 13th and such.  But as I, and the horror movie ideas, got older, I lost faith in them.  I now prefer scary movies, not gore…

Cloverfield review

Ok, remember that I like monster movies?  You would if you paid attention to my intro thing.  It’s worth noting here because, as you may know, Cloverfield is a monster movie.  Well, sort of. It’s more just a movie with a monster IN IT.  It’s really about a group of people that get caught up…

Made of Honor Review

Okay, I love a romantic comedy as much as the next guy. Wait, what guys? Were any guys anywhere near this movie? None with balls. Audience-wise, there were a lot of “girl dates.” Girls-night-out sort of thing. There were some older couples and some dudes that were clearly willing to do anything to score. Like,…

Son of Rambow Review

I totally scored a date for this one. My current maybe-the-one simply refused to see “Made of Honor” with me, but lit up a little when I suggested “Son of Rambow.” We loved “Mrs. Pettigrew Lives for a day” and this had the same kind of vibe. Kind of English and foreign and cutesty and…

Sex and the City Review

Okay, I went and saw “Sex and the City” this weekend. Again, stag. I cannot get my man to see these chick flicks with me. And, again, I rather admire him for it. And it’s not like this is a regular chick flick. This is chick flick on steroids. It’s the chickiest. It was all…

The Love Guru Review

Two letters: P and U. Oof. Not a good date movie. Because it makes you hate love. And Mike Myers. And India. And Canada, just for good measure. Look, I’m not going to lie to you. I heard it was bad. But, it’s Mike Myers, right? I mean, how bad can he be? He’s Shrek,…
