Movie and Theatre Reviews

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: “Cowboys and Aliens”

It’s not going to win any awards but the film definitely lives up to its title, delivering not only cowboys and aliens but also Indians, bandits and the best performance Harrison Ford has given in years.

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: ‘No Strings Attached’

From the opening summer camp scene where the two main characters meet to the end, this film is charming, hilarious, vulgar and at times, sad.

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.

Movie Review: ‘Black Swan’

Sometimes I walk out of a movie not really knowing what to think. I mean I know whether I liked it or not but I don’t know whether I love it, you know?

Review: ‘The King’s Speech’

Yes, I admit it: I have a man-crush on Colin Firth – acting wise, I mean. Have you ever seen him put in a bad performance?I haven’t and his work in The King’s Speech is no different.

Review: ‘All Good Things’

Wow, this movie is bad. Like, “this shouldn’t suck because there’s so much great talent, but it does” bad.
