Pan's Labyrinth

Pan's Labyrinth

Pan's Labyrinth is an absolute stunner. A beautiful and heartfelt, yet brutal and haunting fusion of pure fantasy and harsh reality that I won't soon forget. With this amazing effort, the brilliant Guillermo del Toro (Devil's Backbone, Cronos, Hellboy) has fashioned what is easily his strongest work... [More]

The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness is the most inspirational films of the year. Yes, even more so than Rocky Balboa. Credit Will Smith for not only getting behind this true story as a producer, but for delivering his best performance outside of Ali. In The Pursuit of Happyness, Will Smith is Chris Garnder,...

Charlotte's Web

Charlotte's Web

Charlotte's Web is a wonderful slice of cinematic magic. A stunning mesh of state of the art special effects and live action whimsy that, for my money, is more entertaining and moving than the somewhat overrated Babe. Based on the famed children's book by E.B. White, Charlotte's Web tells the st... [More]

The Libertine

The Libertine

The Libertine finally makes it to the big screen, having sat on the shelf for over a year (never a good sign - particularly when Johnny Depp is topping the bill). Stephen Jeffrey's adapts his own play - wherein Depp, stars in what I suppose could be considered a biopic about the life and decadent ti... [More]

Cars

Cars

Cars is the latest masterwork from Pixar/Disney - a bit of an unusual outing for the animation powerhouse for a number of reasons. First of all, Cars was inspired by a cross-country vehicular vacation John Lasseter embarked upon to re-connect with his family - after admittedly becoming something of... [More]

Basic Instinct 2

Basic Instinct 2

Basic Instinct 2 is garbage, but it's compulsively watchable garbage. From the opening scene in which Sharon Stone's risk (and sex) addicted vixen Catherine Tramell barrels down London streets in her sports car while demanding that her wasted passenger of a boyfriend finger her, I knew I was in f...

Church Ball

Church Ball

Dennis Buckstead (Andrew Wilson) has the hardest calling in his ward (or congregation - as Church Ball is attempting to be less Mormon-centric). Not only has he been asked to coach a group of athletically-challenged basketball players in his congregation but the bishop (the always entertaining Fred... [More]

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]
