    Cashback, Captain America, FUBAR II (350/204)

    by  • 7/23/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    CASHBACK (Netflix) – “This tells me so much more than you could ever say…” What? That he’s a creepy stalker wannabe? Not just figuratively undressing women with his mind, but literally undressing them when he stops time. No, not creepy at all. Other than the weird stalker vibe, it’s mostly a bit of a cute […]

    Scream 4, Firefly (176/106)

    SCREAM 4 (Carlton) – I’m not sure what’s changed between 3 and 4 by way of production crew, but this is an entirely different film. I know, that’s part of the gag with it being a reboot, but SCREAM 4 really does return to a lot of what was good about the first one. There’s […]

    Paul (122/77)

    PAUL (Carlton) – I really like this film for what it is – a silly Simon Pegg / Nick Frost comedy with a CGI alien named Paul. There’s no real higher meaning here, but there are a whole lot of geeky science fiction references here that I caught, and likely many that I missed. They […]

    The Matrix Revolutions, The Eagle, Play Time (82/51)

    by  • 2/20/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS (DVD) – I think one of the big problems I had with the second and third films is how Neo and Trinity seem to be sociopaths; no emotion, no concern for anyone but themselves; inside or outside of the virtual world. They have no chemistry together at all. The sheer amount of […]

    No Strings Attached (67/41)

    by  • 2/10/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    NO STRINGS ATTACHED (Carlton) – I have something of a rule about not paying to see movies starring Tom Cruise or Ashton Kutcher, but I decided I’d risk it this one time. It worked out pretty well – it’s a silly romantic comedy but it’s well acted, and the script isn’t infantile. There’s two ways […]

    Frozen River, Green Hornet, 1984 (30/16)

    by  • 1/16/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    FROZEN RIVER (Netflix) – Nice call, Ben. LONDON RIVER and FROZEN RIVER do fit together nicely in style; though one definitely ends on a happier not than the other. Both films avoid casting judgements on the people and situations – these aren’t films about politics. No heavy-handed morals or messages; just sadness and hope. GREEN […]
