Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine

I finally got a chance to see Little Miss Sunshine. I say finally, because I spent four hours in a wait list line at The Sundance Film Festival and was ultimately turned away. It was the hottest ticket at the festival (audience reaction was resoundingly positive) and snagged the biggest deal this y... [More]

Snakes on a Plane

Snakes on a Plane

Snakes on a Plane finally arrives after over a year of crazed internet buzz. So does the film live up to its "So bad it's good" potential? To be honest, I'm still trying to sort out what I just saw. Snakes on a Plane is ludicrous and silly, and it borders on the verge of cinematic retardation, but h... [More]

Goal!

Goal!

The screening was filled with screaming girl soccer teams. "Inspired by a true story" always leads me to watch what note was is "fact" and what is "improbable." There are a lot of improbables here. Jumping over a fence, Santiago Munez (the expressive, and very handsome Kuno Becker) and his family... [More]

Angel-A

Angel-A

ANGEL-A (yes it's supposed to read 'Angela', while also meaning something else) is the tenth movie that Frenchman Luc Besson has directed. Following such classics as LEON, NIKITA, THE FIFTH ELEMENT and THE BIG BLUE, and such stinkers as JOAN OF ARC and KISS OF THE DRAGON (okay, so he only wrote that... [More]

Pulse

Pulse

Pulse is yet another inferior remake of an atmospheric Japanese horror film. As a picture featuring monsters being unleashed by a computer, it beats the shit out of the ridiculous Stay Alive and the insipid FeardotCom. Having said that though, Pulse still pretty much sucks balls. I thank the good L... [More]

World Trade Center

World Trade Center

World Trade Center is a sincere, heartfelt look into the tragedy that was 9/11, and while the movie is extremely earnest and honorable in it's depiction of a single story (there are thousands of stories to be told about that dark day), it isn't as memorable or effective as the similarly themed Unite... [More]

The Night Listener

The Night Listener

The Night Listener is a compelling mystery that really works because it puts more of an emphasis on character than on the actual mystery element of the plot. Taking a cue from the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Stephen King's Misery, this clever flick had me second guessing on several occasions.... [More]

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... [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]
