Underworld: Rise of the Lycans review

  Ah, once more into the monochromatic, ultra-stylized Underworld franchise.  You know, the first one had that novelty factor going for it because it was new.  And it had the cool factor of both vampires AND werewolves.  And it borrowed from “The Matrix” with its action sequences.  Well, what action there was.  Its’ imperfections were…

The Unborn Review

So this movie, “The Unborn”, looked like it could be pretty creepy, and the idea of a girl that was a twin whose brother died in the womb but was haunting her and trying to be born was an idea with some promise.  Unfortunately, David S. Goyer chose to add a bunch of other stuff,…

My Bloody Valentine 3D Review

Sometimes a movie is just bad.  Sometimes a movie is pretty good.  And sometimes it’s both. Tom Hanniger, played by Jensen Ackles of TV’s “Supernatural”, returns to his hometown, a Pennsylvanian mining town, on the tenth anniversary of the Valentine’s night massacre that claimed the lives of 22 people.  However, upon his return, he is…

Benjamin Button Review

  Ever wonder what it would be like if you lived life in reverse?   If we started old and then got younger as the years passed?  Our minds would indeed grow as they normally would, growing wiser as the years passed, but our bodies would become more mobile, stronger, and useful with each passing year. …

Oscar Preview 2009

  Well, here we are again, folks.  It’s Oscar time.  It was a big year in 2008 for movies, no doubt about it.  So much so, that I wonder if some of the summer blockbusters will have a chance at nominations.  Let’s see who might show up in the Academy’s sights for consideration this year.…

Australia Review

I can honestly say that not a lot of filmmakers are making the kinds of movies they made in the ‘40s’ and 50’s anymore.  I don’t think anyone would disagree.  You know, those old school sweeping epics with action, romance and drama?  Well, apparently director Baz Luhrman felt the same way.  So he made “Australia”.…

The Punisher War Zone Review

Here at ComedyFilmNerdsdotcom.com we have established the obvious:  we’re nerds.  And it’s often assumed that nerds love comic books.  And you know what?  We’re OK with that here because with us, it happens to be true.  But if there were one thing I could say about the movie “Punisher: War Zone”, it would be that…

Gran Torino review

I’ll start right off by saying I’m a fan of Clint Eastwood.  I suppose I always have been.  From his epic westerns at first, then even things like “Play Misty For Me” and “The Beguiled”, and of course the Dirty Harry series, too.  I’d also recommend a movie called “A Perfect World”.  Not many people…

Role Models Review

Comedies these days can often fall into the dumb, teen humor that involves lots of drinking and fart jokes.  And comedies with kids in them can often be insipid or have too much of the sugary sweet, cute factor.  But now we have one that is actually funny, and has some edge, without being laden…
