The Amazing Spider-Man (2012 film)

Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film)
Star Rating:         My concern was that the science fiction and western elements of Cowboys & Aliens would not be able to meet halfway. Can you blame me? On paper, I …
reviewed Captain America: The First Avenger. July 23, 2011

Captain America: The First Avenger
Star Rating:         Captain America: The First Avenger is a fun slice of pop culture nostalgia – a 3D film that crosses the gee-whiz imagery of a yesteryear pulp magazine …
reviewed Green Lantern (2011 movie). June 18, 2011

Green Lantern (2011)
Star Rating:         Green Lantern does not seem to know who it was made for. There are expository sections of story so densely packed with detail that they will (1) confuse …

X-Men: First Class
Star Rating:         There has been much talk about how sequels aren’t supposed to be better than the films that preceded them. Does the same thing apply to prequels? …

Priest (2011 film)

Thor (film)

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night

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 …
reviewed The Losers. April 23, 2010
posted in Movie Hype
The Losers
"The Losers" has been released on the heels of "Kick-Ass," a comic book adaptation that audiences love and will probably always prefer. That's a shame. "The Losers" is, in my view, a winner - vastly superior …

Kick Ass (Movie)
At the start of "Kick-Ass," I couldn't help but feel somewhat excited, as I was introduced to the title character, who, when not dressed as a superhero, I found both engaging and amusing. While his thought …

DVD front
The idea that a movie with graphic depictions of murder could also be deep and incredibly interesting didn't cross my mind until I saw "A History of Violence." I understand now why David Cronenberg chose …
