Review: ‘J. Edgar’

I wanted to like J. Edgar so much… no, I wanted to love it but all I got was a boring history lesson.

Review: ‘Moneyball’

Brad Pitt might not want to make plans Oscar weekend because I’m betting that he’ll be one of the 5 guys named for Best Actor.

Review: ‘Contagion’ Wash Your Hands. Now!

You know, before I begin telling you how much I liked this film about an infectious disease that takes over the globe in a matter of weeks, I have to warn you that you will need to purchase hand sanitizer before you enter the theater.

Review: ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is not only the best movie of the summer, it’s one of the best movies of the year. As of this writing, it’s definitely in my list of top five films.

Review: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2”

The film starts right where the first part left off: Voldemort (I’m allowed to say his name out loud now, right?) has the Elder Wand as Harry grieves by the seaside grave of the Dobby the Elf. From the opening credits to the end, the film doesn’t let up.

Movie Review: “Submarine”

Have you ever been home on a rainy Sunday afternoon, flipped on the TV and randomly discovered a movie so good that you’re glad you were stuck on the couch for 2 hours? Submarine is this movie.

Movie Review: “Bridesmaids”

The movie is about friendships and relationships and each character has the chance to add their own bit of realism to their part.

Review: ‘Jane Eyre’

I’ve never read the book Jane Eyre, and I’m betting I never will (I’m still trying to finish the final Harry Potter book). Thankfully, Director Cary Fukunaga has pretty much ensured that I’ll never need to crack open the classic book.

Review: ‘Battle Los Angeles’

First of all, it’s a movie about aliens coming and destrying us. You’re not going in to the theater expecting to see Jane Eyre. Suspend some disbelief!

Review: ‘Hall Pass’

Imagine you’re married and your wife decides to give you a hall pass. One week off from marriage. You’re free to do anything you want!

Movie Review: ‘Barney’s Version’

Based on the novel by Mordecai Richler, the movie follows the life of Barney Panofsky (Giamatti) as we watch him through 3 marriages, a popular TV show and a possible murder rap.
