Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Ballad is the latest offering from the folks who brought us the side splitting hilarity of Anchorman and, while this goofy parody of NASCAR doesn't deliver the jokes as fast and furiously as Anchorman, it has enough high energy laughs to make it one of the more...

Stormbreakers

Stormbreakers

The best way to describe Stormbreaker is comparing it to James Bond, only this Bond is just 14 years old, and he goes by the name of Alex Rider. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Anthony Horowitz, and is the first in a series of Alex Rider novels, more of which are planned for the... [More]

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

There was a time when Ivan Reitman, might have rightly been considered the king of the big screen comedy. He and Harold Ramis and Bill Murray cornered the market on the genre for a period of years. As I watched his new baby My Super Ex-Girlfriend it became clear that Reitman hasn't changed, it's the... [More]

Miami Vice

Miami Vice

Miami Vice marks Michael Mann's first foray into big screen television adaptations. It was bound to happen sooner or later. Gone from this Miami Vice of course, are the pastel jackets, no socks and Jan Hammer's theme music. They're traded in for hyper kinetic violence and a sleeker, up-to-date look... [More]

Lady In The Water

Lady In The Water

Lady in the Water is the latest film from M. Night Shyamalan, and like most Shyamalan films, it isn't exactly the picture you might be expecting it to be. Lady in the Water is a bedtime story. A fairy tale as it were, but the film does not whisk the audience away to some awe inspiring fantasy world... [More]

Accepted

Accepted

Accepted is a funny and entertaining (if a bit inconsistent) trip back to the kind of teen flicks popular in the 80s. Films like Risky Business, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller's Day Off with a storyline somewhat similar to the more recent Old School. Accepted is by no means in the same league as the... [More]

Borat

Borat

Actually the full title of the film is Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (say that five times fast) and it's quite simply the funniest film of the year. In fact, I don't think there will be a funnier movie in 2006 (perhaps Talladega Nights, but I dou... [More]

A Scanner Darkly

A Scanner Darkly

A Scanner Darkly is the literary work of noted Science Fiction author Phillip K. Dick, who gave us such fare as Blade Runner and Starship Troopers - at least the original novelette forms of these stories. This time it is the accomplished Texas filmaker Richard Linklater who brings us this dark and p... [More]

Clerks 2

Clerks 2

Finding the right approach for this review is the most difficult writing tasks I've been faced with for some time. I saw Clerks 2 not more than 20 minutes after taking in a screening of Ali G's riotously hilarious new film Borat – a movie that made me laugh so hard and often that I suspect I may hav... [More]

Monster House

Monster House

Monster House is a wonderfully entertaining movie that sort of reminded me of the 80's gems of my youth. The Goonies, Explorers, and Monster Squad immediately spring to mind. What do all these films share? Well in a nutshell, they're all a celebration of childhood. In addition to being a clever gho... [More]

Jet Li's Fearless

Jet Li's Fearless

Well, I've just got back from an early afternoon screening of the movie that is being billed, and advertised as the very last Jet Li martial arts movie. That movie is Fearless, aka Jet Li's Fearless AKA Huo Yuan Jia after the lead character. Look for the film to hit theaters stateside September 2006... [More]

An Inconvenient Truth

An Inconvenient Truth

After the controversial election of 2000 Former Vice President Al Gore was likely disillusioned a bit thinking if it was all over for him. But delving into his other aspirations he found solace in continuing his fight over environmental issues. Drawing upon research begun by his college professors G... [More]

You, Me and Dupree

You, Me and Dupree

"You, Me and Dupree" is, quite simply, one of the worst comedies of the year. The laughs are scarce, the performances are mediocre and the screenplay is a virtual train wreck. Oh well. It was either see this or see "Little Man" (review to come). In this would-be laugh-fest, Owen Wilson plays Ra... [More]

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest is the second installment in a franchise that was never expected to be a franchise. When the first film came out in 2003, Disney hoped the movie would become a modest success, but they never expected it to become a mega-blockbuster. It eventually went on t... [More]

The Brotherhood of the Wolf

The Brotherhood of the Wolf

Director Christophe Gans' film is gorgeous to look at, extremely ambitious, and stylistically impressive; but small misses derail it. The film is much too long, it's weighed down by unnecessary philosophical platitudes, and the star's hair is a major distraction. Its an ultra-violent medieval act... [More]
