Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

In Inglourious Basterds, auteur Quentin Tarantino re-wrote the past with his creative tale of a world in which Adolph Hitler's fate was much different than it is in the history books. In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, director Timur Bekmambetov and writer Seth Grahame-Smith (who adapted his own... [More]

Brave

Brave

Whether they're telling a story about a rat in a kitchen, crafting a movie that features a cantankerous old fart for a protagonist, or making a movie that delivers an enchanting first act with virtually no dialogue, Pixar is known for taking risks and it is this attribute—along with the uncanny ab...

Ted

Ted

I had high hopes for Ted and while this film did make me laugh several times, this is another case in which a coming attraction trailer is responsible for revealing most of a film's funniest gags. Ted is the first big screen outing for Seth MacFarlane (creator of the wildly popular TV show, Family... [More]

Men In Black 3

Men In Black 3

Its been fifteen years since Men in Black first hit theaters and its been a decade since the forgettable Men in Black II. Maybe the lengthy hiatus has done the franchise some good. Men in Black III isn't on par with the first, but its a huge step up from the sequel. In Men in Black III, Will Smith... [More]

Dark Shadows

Dark Shadows

Dark Shadows is the latest big screen collaboration between director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Its based on the late 60's/early 70's soap opera of the same name. The gothic, melodramatic eccentricities at the heart of this underground TV Show, seem like a perfect fit for Tim Burton's style. Unfo... [More]

Beasts of the Southern Wild

Beasts of the Southern Wild

In the dreamlike Beasts of the Southern Wild, precocious youngster Hushpuppy (star in the making Quvenzhane Wallis) lives in "The Bathtub"--a southern Delta community that has been devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Along with her father Wink (played by Dwight Henry), Hushpuppy strives to survive duri... [More]

Bully

Bully

Lee Hirsch's documentary Bully caused quite the stir a short while ago after the MPAA slapped the film with an R rating (for what they considered excessive use of the F word). After a much publicized battle between the MPAA and The Weinstein Company, the rating was reversed. The film is now PG-13 (a... [More]

The Dictator

The Dictator

In The Dictator, Sacha Baron Cohen is General Aladeen-- a sexist, fascist, murderous, egomaniacal Middle Eastern dictator who finds himself an unlikely fish out of water after being set up by his own people and forced to live life as a commoner in the good old U.S. of A. While in America, he falls... [More]

What To Expect When You're Expecting

What To Expect When You're Expecting

Taking its name from the popular self help book (as a father of four, I'm very familiar with this book), this all star bit of fluff features the likes of Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Lopez, Anna Kendrick, Brooklyn Decker, Chace Crawford, Dennis Quaid, and Chris Rock. Its a generic look... [More]

Battleship

Battleship

If Transfomers and Independence Day bumped uglies, their offspring might look a little something like Batteship. Based on the Hasbro board game, this relentlessly moronic alien invasion picture was directed by Peter Berg. Berg is an actor by trade (you may remember him from Wes Craven's late 80's sl... [More]

Titanic: 3D IMAX Experience

Titanic: 3D IMAX Experience

James Cameron's 1997 Best Picture Oscar winner gets a 3D facelift, and not only was it released just in time for its 15th anniversary but more appropriately, in time for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the actual ship. To briefly set up the plot, a pair of star crossed lovers (played wonde... [More]

October Baby

October Baby

October Baby is a sloppy exercise in Christian cinema. That statement isn't meant as a stab at Christian cinema. Its more of a stab a sloppy film-making. I don't mind a movie with religious undertones, but if a film is going to tackle tough subject matter like abortion, it better do it with honest... [More]

Jeff Who Lives At Home

Jeff Who Lives At Home

The Duplass Brothers (the sibling film-makers behind such mumble core classics as The Puffy Chair and Cyrus) return with the carefree charmer Jeff Who Lives At Home. Jason Segel stars as the title character--a 30 year old pot smoker/slacker with good intentions whose lovable nature is only rivaled... [More]

We Need To Talk About Kevin

We Need To Talk About Kevin

We Need to Talk About Kevin is a provocative, unsettling little indie starring Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly as the unsuspecting parents of a truly troubled child. While this film from director Lynne Ramsay plays to the art house crowd, it is at its heart a horror movie. Not in an Omen sense bu... [More]

Cabin In The Woods

Cabin In The Woods

Cabin in the Woods is a hard film to review because there's almost no way to tap dance around spoilers. Still, I'll do my best to set things up without giving away this movie's wonderfully creative secrets. The less you know going in, the more you're likely to enjoy Cabin in the Woods. Suffice it...
