The Town
First off, let me go ahead and say, The Town is one of the best movies of the year. If that's all you wanted to know, have a nice day. Otherwise, continue on my friend.   I have said it …
Ear Force PX21 Gaming Headset for Playstation 3
So, I link up with my friend on Bad Company 2 for a little multiplayer goodness, when something strange and wonderful happens. He starts chatting with me: clear as a bell. As if were on the telephone. …

Toy Story 3
I was a 12 when Pixar first created the computer generated, animated world of Andy's room. It was amazing, if you remember, watching the perilous journey of Buzz and Woody as they faced unspeakable dangers …

Robin Hood (Single-Disc Unrated Director's Cut)
Robin Hood swashbuckles its way through new territory, hitting the perverbial "refresh" button atop the original story. This is a whole new world folks. Fortunately, the errors don't overthrow an overall …

Movie poster
Peter Sellers and crew are at their best in Stanley Kubrick's Dr Strangelove. Though the subject is serious, it never lacks in laughs. Rewatch Factor 5 stars

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Tragic and beautiful, Diving Bell takes you on an unrestricted journey of dreams and memories. Tom Waits song as the credits roll couldn't be more perfectly placed. Rewatch Factor: 4 and 1/2 Stars

The Orphanage
Guillermo del Toro got behind this movie for good reason. It witfully dances around the unknown, then leads you down a gnarly path twist by twist. Very well done, and look forward to watching it again. …

Pan's Labyrinth
After leaving the theater I reviewed and purchased the soundtrack. In the past year and a half I have watched Pan's Labyrinth a dozen times. There are too many great things about this film to catch in …

Pineapple Express (Unrated + BD Live) (2008)
Holy cow what a mixed up movie, but I loved nearly every minute. From comedy to violent action flick, pineapple express does not disappoint. Seth Rogen in my opinion is already a classic movie actor. …

The Rules of the Game - Criterion Collection
Entering the film, I wasn't sure what kind of sauce Ebert was hitting when he called this "perhaps the greatest film EVER". As it came to a close, I think it is not THE BEST, but if they were to make …

The City of Lost Children (1995)
City of Lost children is an original, zany, beautiful masterwork that captured my imagination with every frame. The cover design on the American release is bland and deceiving. Even in its darkness is …

The Fall (+ BD Live) (2006)
Spike jonze and David Fincher made a wise decision in backing The Fall. It is beautiful, to say the least. Yes it is visually stunning, but it is the tragedy that makes it gorgeous.    I …

Jeff Dunham: Spark of Insanity (2007)
Its really hard to review a standup comedy routine "critiquingly". If it's GREAT, like this one is, I would have to resort to the overwhelming non-lack of cliches plastered on the covers of movie boxes …

The Bad Seed (1956)
I don't know which is scarrier: folks so deeply analyzing this film that they lose sight of its simple brilliance; or that when I told my sister that I had purchased the bad seed on dvd she said, "Well, …
Letters from Iwo Jima (Two-Disc Special Edition)
This is not the Best movie ever made. This is not the Worst Film EVER made. It is not Eastwoods best or worst. So what if this film "shows soldiers unfairly killing captives". Come on folks...    Peop …

What's great about this soundtrack is the uniqueness. Wait a sec. I know, now-a-days thats hard to come by, in fact its almost nil. The soundtrack to the Proposition has odd tempos, haunting vocals, and …

I don't like pointless chick flix. I am the King of this notion. I would rather sit alone for six hours staring at a pine tree than give an hour and a half-plus to a nightmarish meet-cute. Thankfully, …
