She's The Man

She's The Man

She's The Man stars former Nickelodeon Diva Amanda Bynes in a teen comedy take of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. You have to figure that the Bard has done enough spinning in his grave to have burrowed somewhere near the earth's core, surprisingly however, She's The Man will probably only have William... [More]

Prairie Home Companion

Prairie Home Companion

Prairie Home Companion in a strange sort of way is the bucolic version of Dave Chappelle's Block Party. Both are very entertaining mixtures of music, comedy and behind the scenes docudrama. Of course PHC is sort of a televised version of Garrison Keillor's venerable radio program that's been on the... [More]

On A Clear Day

On A Clear Day

The film begins with the main character Frank Redmond (Peter Mullan) clearing out his office. After 28 years working for the same shipbuilder, the 55-year-old grandfather of two finds himself laid off (or made redundant - as they say across the pond). Without work for the first time that he can righ... [More]

Hard Candy

Hard Candy

Before I went in to see Hard Candy I was warned by a couple of guys that I was chatting with that the film would ruin my night. It's too intense, too in your face, too . . . awful. Since it was either this film or a depressing documentary on the deplorable state of the environment starring Al Gore c... [More]

Confetti

Confetti

Confetti is a British mockumentary that takes a chapter out of the Christopher Guest book of film making. As was the case with Waiting For Guffman and A Mighty Wind, Confetti is a mostly improvised comedy that coasts along on the considerable talents of an up to the challenge cast. The Chris Guest f...

Stay Alive

Stay Alive

Stay Alive is the perfect movie for a midnight screening, because the only way it can be fully enjoyed is if you're free to openly make fun of it, and you have an appreciative audience for your verbal pot-shots. Adam and I took it in with about a dozen kids and I must say, even though I'm supposed... [More]

Bone On Showest 2006

Bone On Showest 2006

INDEPENDENT FILM NIGHT This first event was held at the posh Orleans theaters - we arrived just in the nick of time and quickly found a seat in the dark. We'd already decided to split up since I'd already seen two of the evening's six choices at Sundance, which only left four and since there was... [More]

V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta

V For Vendetta is a film that is going to be kicked around by the pundits and the press ad nauseum. A film where the protagonist is a poncey terrorist whom all but the most silly right wingnuts will most likely find themselves siding with. I've already got a snootful of it just flipping through a co... [More]

Dave Chappelle's Block Party

Dave Chappelle's Block Party

Dave Chappelle has been proclaimed by many to be a comic genius. I've long been a fan of the quick witted, multi-faceted comedian and like all of his fans, was concerned and confused by his (meltdown?) and subsequent retreat to Africa. Not that it really strikes me as being out of character for the... [More]

Failure To Launch

Failure To Launch

In the midst of a month where there is about 1 good film per every 75 million Brokeback Mountain jokes, director Tom Dey (who has proven his comedic chops with Shanghai Noon) offers up another comedy this time aimed at a female audience. The rom-com stars Matthew McCounahey who turns in a performanc... [More]

The Shaggy Dog

The Shaggy Dog

Tracking the Pedigree of this latest Disney dog is perhaps a bit different than you may imagine. If you were under the impression that The Shaggy Dog is a remake of The Shaggy Dog, you don't know your Disney history as well as you think. The Shaggy Dog was an old school Disney vehicle with many of t... [More]

The Hills Have Eyes

The Hills Have Eyes

The Hills Have Eyes is a remake of Wes Craven's exploitation horror flick from 1977(the same year Star Wars was released if anyone cares). The original picture is held in high regard by many fans of the genre and while I've always liked parts of it, I've never found it to be the cult classic many... [More]

Aquamarine

Aquamarine

Being the father of precocious pre-tween daughters who have memorized the lines from every tween-tastic show on the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, it was fait accompli (French for screwed) that I'd be taking in the latest fish-out-of-daughter mermaid tale Aquamarine. Having become something of an a... [More]

Prime

Prime

First off I'll admit that I'm reviewing this one off of the video, having missed it in theaters. It didn't get the most enthusiastic notices in the world plus it seemed to come and go in something of a hurry - pity. As far as traditional romantic comedies go (excluding 40 year old Virgin, as non-tra... [More]

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada marks the directorial debut of Tommy Lee Jones - one of Hollywood's inexorably irascible forces and if the film reflects Jones' hard-scrabble, barbwire personae, so does it reveal the ghostly presence of Sam Peckinpah. His spirit infuses not only the scope and... [More]
