The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicor

Real Steel
Star Rating:         In Shawn Levy’s Real Steel, hulking robots fight each other in back-alleys and sports arenas as frothing crowds cheer them on. This blending of …

Conan the Barbarian (2011 film)
Star Rating:         Watching the original 1982 version of Conan the Barbarian, I had the distinct impression it was forced into existence – a film made before the …

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Star Rating:         It’s never easy saying goodbye. I can’t say that I grew up with the Harry Potter films – I was eighteen years old when the first was …

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Star Rating:         Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio are amazing men. Their screenplays can confuse audiences just as easily as they can entertain. Pirates of the Caribbean: …

Thor (film)
Star Rating:         Kenneth Branagh’s Thor is essentially two movies fighting for the same space, and only one of them emerges victorious. That would be the one that …

Insidious
Star Rating:         The interesting thing about Insidious is that it’s very good at being completely unoriginal. In their third collaboration, director James Wan and …

Season of the Witch
Star Rating:         What we have here is a bit of a contradiction: A historical drama that exposes the hypocrisy of the Church and a supernatural thriller that confirms …

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
So there I was, sitting in my seat at the theater awaiting the start of “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” the third film in the series. As I tore open the plastic …

The Warrior's Way (2010)
“The Warrior’s Way” combines the brutal violence of a martial arts saga, the nostalgic lure of an old west drama, and the visual appeal of a living comic book. And yet, in trying to …

Tangled (2010)
One of the pleasures of watching "The Princess and the Frog" a year ago was in knowing that Disney was getting back in touch with their roots. They gave us a traditional hand-drawn animated …

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
The decision to split the final of J.K. Rowling’s novels into two films was a wise one, for it allows for the inclusion of crucial details that simply couldn’t be cut for the sake of time …

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
If you love action, if you live for comedy, if you get a nostalgic high from the electronic beep-boop sounds of eight-bit arcade games like "Pac Man" and "Space Invaders," then "Scott Pilgrim vs. the …

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" was made to accommodate the attention spans of the age group it's intended for. It doesn't have much of anything in the way of plot or character development, but it has plenty …

Predators (2010)
"Predators" begins with Adrien Brody coming to in mid-freefall, which is a first for me as a moviegoer. We don't exactly know where he fell from, but we do know that he's literally falling from the sky, …

The Last Airbender (2010)
Ever since seeing "The Sixth Sense," my nature has been to resist the films of M. Night Shyamalan. I have to admit that now. I'm aware of his technical skills and his ability to build tension, and yet …
reviewed Iron Man 2. May 07, 2010
Iron Man 2
At the end of 2008, I made two bold assertions: (1) That "Iron Man" was one of the year's best films; (2) that "Iron Man" was one of the greatest superhero films ever made. I still believe both to be …

Clash of the Titans (2010 film)
While I've never agreed with the idea that only bad movies should be remade, the 1981 version of "Clash of the Titans" is a perfect example of why such statements are valid. This new 2010 version is, …

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

The Book of Eli
One does not usually begin a movie review by talking about the ending, but in the case of "The Book of Eli," there's really no other way to go about it. Something, and I'm trying to be careful here, is …
reviewed Avatar (2009 film). December 18, 2009
Avatar
James Cameron's "Avatar" is one of those films where you're happy to just sit back and let it happen. The story is unoriginal on just about every level, yet the way the story is told is an experience …
Poster
It's rare for a sequel to outshine the original. "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" is more focused, more exciting, more interesting, and much more entertaining than 2005's "Narnia" film, "The …
