The Boxtrolls Review

It’s been awhile since I found a movie that just made me absolutely happy. The Boxtrolls is simply the best family movie I have seen this year! I can’t remember just where I caught a first glimpse at The Boxtrolls but I definitely knew I would be excited for it’s eventual release. The Boxtrolls is a stop motion animated move which focuses around an orphaned boy named Eggs, who is raised by a group of monsters...

Obvious Child

Obvious Child Review

Ever have one of those days where it goes from bad to worse? Imagine if you found yourself broken up with your boyfriend, unemployed and pregnant just in time for the most romantic holiday of the year: Valentine’s Day. How would you handle the pressure? Most people wouldn’t know what to do and I honestly don’t think I would have handled it quite like Donna Stern did in Obvious Child. Donna (Jenny Slate) was quite...

Bad Words Review: Jason Bateman is in his Prime

Bad Words is Jason Bateman‘s latest film. Bateman is not only starring in it but he also directed the film; Bateman’s first big time directorial debut. Bad Words isn’t a conventional story by any means; however, it has everything a good story and good movie, should have: suspense, comedy, drama, and heart. After watching this film I can say with complete confidence that Jason Bateman is in his prime. The film is about a man named...

[Review] Abducted: The Ultimate Mindf*ck

Whether you are an adrenaline junky or just want a pretty girl to grab onto your arm in fear, humanity is drawn to horror films. The twisted stories keep us guessing while the sick situations entertain our darker sides. We enjoy watching every day, normal individuals unexpectedly be forced into a terrifying predicament as they fight for their survival. However, horror movies as of recent have become a bit stale, at least in my opinion....

The World's End Still

AND WE’RE BACK, JUST LIKE THE FIVE MUSKETEERS – “THE WORLD’S END” REVIEW

Growing up I always thought I would have the same group of friends forever. But actually I can’t think of a person who didn’t think that way either. We all have memories that we’d love the opportunity to relive. Moments that often defined a Summer or entire childhood. Moments that will remain with you forever. However, it’s not often that life lets us regroup and embark on those memorable moments again. We all mean to...

[Review] Sharknado: Everything You Never Knew You Wanted

When it comes to entertainment, people want one of two things. They either want an artistically masterpiece that leaves them in complete awe and inspires them or they want something that kills time that is better than watching the grass grow. Sharknado is going to give you a loving marriage between both desires but not quite to the degree that one might expect. This Syfy made-for-TV movie will never go down on record as one...

[Review] Star Trek Into Darkness

  When J.J. Abrams rebooted the Star Trek series in 2009, I had hope. I had a belief that we would have a whole new series of a beloved franchaise to expose a whole new generation to Star Trek. Unfortunately, Star Trek Into Darkness doesn’t give me much hope for the next movie in the reboot franchise. I have read tons of other reviews and even watched another Star Trek movie long before sitting down to...

My Greats and Gripes of 2012

Looking back on the year, I pay homage to some of my cherished moments in games and film while tearing down in equal part the most standout disappointments I endured with the eloquence and tastefulness of a chainsaw.

“Silent Hill Revelation 3D” Movie Review

Whether you are into the “Silent Hill” games or not, we were constantly reassured that “Silent Hill Revelation 3D” was closely adapted to the “Silent Hill” games – more specifically “Silent Hill 3”. Yet with those high hopes, I sit here a little conflicted. I’m not really sure how I stand on the movie and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to convey why I’m not swayed either way towards this film. By swaying, I...

FILM REVIEW: VALHALLA RISING

Those familiar with Nicolas Winding Refn’s work from the Pusher films should already know that Valhalla Rising will rule. Like Pusher and it’s sequels, this is a movie that is capable of immersing the viewer in a realistically dangerous landscape. In fact, after visiting the Pusher world one may want to take a shower. But here the feeling is more like personally discovering a runic tablet at the bottom of a stream or lakebed, decipherable...

Transformers

Transformers

I finally saw the Transformers movie. It’s amazing how they could turn a cartoon that was designed to sell toys into a movie that in the end is designed to sell more toys! I heard a now drunk and fat He-Man will be starring in a reality show with his wife She-Ra where she nags him about how she could’ve married “Greyskull” money. – Paul Cress

Rush Hour Three Karate Chops the Competition

Rush Hour Three Karate Chops the Competition

America enjoys repetition. People want the same thing everywhere you go: When you travel to even the far reaches of the earth, there’s always a McDonald’s. In 2004, people screamed for change and Bush still got re-elected. And now people flock to Rush Hour three to see the same movie they saw in 1998 and 2001. I suppose people enjoy seeing two races come together by insulting another race. Ahh France, the last bastion of...
