(500) Days of Summer
Don't be fooled by the opening narration. (500) Days of Summer is very much a love story. Just not the kind we're used to seeing.      Come to think of it, the title's …
reviewed Samurai Rebellion. August 18, 2011
Criterion collection
Don't come to Samurai Rebellion expecting a strutting, slashing, melodramatic sword flick. Joichi is a movie that deals with major issues -- love, honor, duty, injustice and, above all, self-respect …

Peeping Tom (1960)
Peeping Tom is a great and unpleasant film made by Michael Powell three years after he and his partner in the Archers, Emeric Pressburger, went their own ways. British critics loathed it, said so loudly, …

The Ladykillers (1955)

The Tall Guy
Jeff Goldblum plays Dexter King, a tall American in London trying to establish himself as an actor. For the last two years he's been getting by playing stooge in the comedy act of a monumentally self-centered …

Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film)
12A - 118mins - Action/Sci-Fi/Thriller - 17th August 2011   Finally my prayers to the Hollywood top dogs for a bit of originality have been answered in the form of Cowboys & Aliens, a sci-fi …

   The life of the troubled husband Walter Black proves that Jodie Foster could do much more as a director than anyone could think. She has the eye and the spirit for the job if she managed …

Crazy Stupid Love
There’s always something I can find to love in a romantic comedy. I can always appreciate the sense of wish fulfillment, the authentic sweetness of some, or just how, well, love-able some of the …

Robin Hood (Most Wanted Edition) (1973)
This was one of my favorite Disney animated features when I was a kid. It's still fun now. One of the things I can appreciate as an adult is how it creates funny yet deep characters. The villagers of …

My Cousin Vinny (1992)
I'd heard about this movie for a while and was really looking forward to seeing it. However, I was very disappointed with the final movie. The humor seemed forced and predictable for the most part. There …

The Visitors (1996)
I had to stop watching this after the first 10 minutes. It was disgusting in more ways than one. The actors seemed not to even put any effort into their acting. I wasn't sure when to laugh or cry. The …

Mulan (Two-Disc Special Edition) (1998)
I haven't seen a Disney animated feature since Lion King, but I saw Mulan recently with my wife and have to say I enjoyed it. As somebody who studies Asia, I think it's about time Disney ventured into …

White Lion (2010)
White Lion is a cute animal story for kids. However, I'd warn that it's more of a docudrama than a kids movie. There's some amazing footage of lions, particularly the rare white lion who is the star of …

Happily N'Ever After 2: Snow White (2009)
This movie tries to follow in the footsteps of Shrek by taking an irreverent take on fairy tales and making references to many of the classics. However, where Shrek was hilarious, Happily N'Ever After …

Timer (2009)
Finally, a truly original, entertaining movie! Timer portrays a future in which everybody has a device that counts down to the moment when they meet their soulmate. It's a cute - even if totally unrealistic …

Hunk (1987)
I usually like older 80s romantic comedies, but Hunk just takes 80s corniness to a new level. The acting is atrociously bad, and I say that as someone who typically forgives weak acting. The basic plot …

The Hobbit (1977)
For years, this was the ONLY movie rendition of my favorite book. This animated feature is a halfway decent adaptation of the book to a movie. Some of the characters look good in animation, such as the …

Date With an Angel (1987)
This is a cute movie, with a very 80s feel. A soon-to-be-married Jim Saunders finds a real Angel in his pool. Of course, he falls in love with her and has to hide her from scheming opportunists. There's …

The Secret of Moonacre (2008)
This movie seems like it could have been the next Narnia, but it isn't. It's not bad. It's a cute little fairy tale story, particularly aimed towards young girls. However, two aspects really undermine …

The Queen & I
I have a passing interest in Iranian politics and enjoyed this film. However, as a documentary it leaves much to be desired. The film starts off really slow. The first several interview scenes simply …

Tangled (2010)
Tangled has probably received more popular attention than any other Disney animated feature since Lion King. It is quite entertaining and has some funny scenes. The film has a few running jokes, such …

The Princess and the Frog (Single-Disc Edition)
This is one of the odder Disney animated features. Disney clearly wanted an African American princess, but couldn't find any appropriate stories in European fairy tale traditions. Thus, in The Princess …

Tears of the Sun (Special Edition) (2003)
Much of this film is pure and simple Hollywood, set in Africa with all of the Hollywood stereotypes about Africa (vicious rebels, crotchety foreign aid workers, wailing African mothers, etc.). Still, …
