• Live Free or Die Hard (38/18)

    LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD – aka DIE HARD 4. This isn’t the best of the films for me, but I’d watch it over the second film anytime. I think the third film had its moments, but this one was more consistant. That said… For me, this is a film where technology is written somewhat […]

    Keyhole, Edwin Boyd (11/6)

    by  • 1/6/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    KEYHOLE – This is one of those films that’s surely better than I think it is. It moves between comedically bizarre and impenetrably obtuse. Guy Maddin is great, funny, and charming and it was nice that he was there for the screening… but the film just feels pretentious, forced, arty for art’s sake. Like a […]

    The Guard (582/338)

    THE GUARD – This is something of an Irish buddy cop film with Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) and FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) teaming up to take out international drug dealers. Gleeson plays a small town Irish cop with an interesting idea of what police-work entails; cleaning up embarrassing evidence from crime scenes, hiring […]

    But I’m a Cheerleader, Dirty Harry, Caddyshack (561/327)

    BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER – “Hang up that chick habit…” This is a great parody of that right wing Christian favorite – the de-gaying boot camps. Megan (Natasha Lyonne) plays a cheerleader who’s the last to know she’s gay. She’s dating the football player, and she just happens to think about her cheerleading pals when […]

    Pulp Fiction, Atlas Shrugged Part 1 (541/318)

    by  • 11/14/2011 • film • 2 Comments

    PULP FICTION – Watched the fan edit ‘The Chronological Cut’ where all the storylines are placed into, you guessed it, chronological order. It’s a bit weird to start off with the watch scene and move on from there, especially since now we don’t end the film until the Fighter escapes from the Sex Dungeon after […]

    Red State, Robocop

    by  • 10/30/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    RED STATE – This is not a horror, and not really a thriller… Drama or action, maybe. There’s a potential early on for it to become something like HOSTEL with real horror elements, but that path disappears pretty quickly. The way I see this, it is really the story of ATF agent Joseph Keenan (John […]

    Godfather, Saw III, Saw IV (467/268)

    by  • 9/25/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    GODFATHER – Fantastic movie – all three hours of it are important to the story of Don Corleone’s (Brando) fall and the rise of his replacement, son Michael (Pacino). I read the book one summer in high school, and never found the time to sit through the full film. It’s one solid piece of film… […]
