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.

Review: ‘Love and Other Drugs’

Say what you will, but Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway have great chemistry together and in Love and Other Drugs, it’s on full display.

Movie Review: ‘Unstoppable’

It’s all Ethan Suplee’s fault. Thanks to his character’s laziness, we have Denzel Washington and Chris Pine risking their lives to save a small Pennsylvania town from a speeding, Unstoppable train loaded with deadly chemicals.

Movie Review: ‘Morning Glory’

Roger Michele directed one of my favorite movies, Notting Hill (yeah, I’m not afraind to admit that), so I was looking forward to his latest film, Morning Glory.

Movie Review: ‘127 Hours’

And this is where James Franco takes over the film. He’s excellent in the role. He’s on-screen by himself (save for a few hallucinations) and never once do you wish the film moved faster. He is perfect.

Movie Review: ‘Due Date’

Robert Downey, Jr is Peter Highman, an architect stranded in Atlanta desperate to get back to his pregnant wife (Michelle Monaghan) in LA. He catches a ride with the also stranded Ethan (Zach Galifianakis) and the road trip from hell begins.

Movie Review: ‘RED’

Based on the D.C. Comics graphic novels by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, RED is a completely entertaining action-comedy starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren.
