Thor (film)
Remember the 80's with movies like Masters of the Universe, Beastmaster 2, among others that took it's far out fantasy characters from another world, took them from that other world and dropped them into modern day Earth?  How about other comic movies like Judge Dredd that remove the protagonist from his job and have him more down to earth or less fantastic?  Thats what sadly happens …

The Adjustment Bureau
I was pleasantly surprised. I generally like Matt Damon and he was solid but Emily Blunt ensured that it was more romantic than the usual Philip Dick story but not also ensures its not just a chick flick with special effects.

Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film)
A genre blend that starts off strong despite the adherence to a multitude of western cliches, it all falls flat in the second act with the introduction of a lazy plot twist created for no other reason than to save the screenwriters the trouble of advancing the story through dialogue and character development, and give them an easy out for a typically lame Hollywood Happy Ending.

Green Lantern (2011)
This movie had me so confused at the end. There are seemingly important parts that are passed over with minimal explainations to make way for more in depth development of parts that i thought where not as important in the telling of the story as a whole. The editing was not the greatest, the film jumps around alot, adding to the confusion. But on a good note the special effects were pretty cool looking..and …

Meek's Cutoff
Give Kelly Reichardt (director) and Jonathan Raymond (writer) due credit. They may have created a failure in Meek’s Cutoff, but it’s a failure that is serious, thoughtful and encourages discussion.       In 1845 three couples hire a guide to lead them through what is supposed to be a shortcut through the Oregon high desert to good homesteading land. Before long, …

Green Lantern (2011)
From all the harsh reviews and knowing that it starred someone who is principly a comedian (having remembered how brutal The Green Hornet was), I was reluctant to spend any "quality" time watching this. Well it became available at the library so I took it out and with nothing on tv but Dancing With the Stars, I decided to pop it in the DVD player. It actually held my interest throughout. Furthermore, …

I tried really hard to like this movie but just couldnt get into it. It had its moments like most movies do that really had my attention it just couldnt hold it. But i will say some of the dialouge from Thor in his time on earth is outright hilarious.

Before reading the reviews and seeing the movies, I had assumed that this would be some dude action flick, but it turned out to be pleasantly more than that. I loved it. It's a trippy and thought-provoking movie with a great cast.

Green Lantern (2011)
I've always enjoyed watching DC Comics' stable of heroes in cartoons and films more than actually reading about them in comics.  To me, DC's heroes were, for the most part, more "super" than Marvel's crop of characters.  They always seemed to be a bit more fantastical and otherworldly.  Sure, Marvel has plenty of heroes who acquired there powers …

Green Lantern (2011)
I was prepared to love this movie. It had everything I would enjoy in a comic book super hero movie including the good looking hero, outstanding special effects. So what happened? I did like it, but did not love it. It definately needed some editing. It took forever for the story to take off. I know they had to explain all the back story, but it was so slow moving in the beginning. Coming from director …

A Better Life (2011 movie)
*** out of ****    I despise Oscar Bait; I really do. It's not fun watching filmmakers strip a film of all its artistry and thought-provoking attributes, actually, it ends up rather exhausting. Of course, there is good Oscar Bait ("The King's Speech"), but I still dislike the idea as a whole. If you don't even know what I'm on about and are scratching your head whenever I use the …

The movie was better than "Batman and Robin"   See full review here.      P.S. Blake Lively …

**1/2 out of ****     Explosions, special effects, a sense of humor, and enthusiastic, dedicated leads. I'm getting tired of superhero movies; as 2011 seems to be a pretty big year for them, albeit a very mediocre one. You've got your good superhero movies and then you've got the ones that lack depth of importance. Chances are, I will forget most of the superhero movies I've seen …

Vanishing on 7th Street
** out of ****     For what it is, I guess "Vanishing on 7th" street can't really be called "bad". It has good intentions - and yes, ALL OF THEM are good - but such things can only go so far before you need to bring some actual creativity into the equation. I was hoping to be one of those few, but respected people that enjoyed the flick. I tried, I tried, and I tried; but kept …

Limitless
No one wants to become an addict to damage himself. Everyone becomes addicted to something because of the promise of becoming hipper, cooler, suaver, smarter and perhaps even more charismatic. Now let me stop myself from ripping off the prologue of BATMAN VENOM, and let us discuss director Neil Burger’s “Limitless”. It does have an interesting premise, as the screenplay by Leslie …

I wasn't expecting much when I saw this film. I was thinking that it would be worse than Daredevil. It was actually better. Asgard had been at war with the Storm Giants but a truce now prevails. Thor and his brother Loki are shown being tutored by their father, Odin who is also King of Asgard.    Odin decides that he will name Thor as his air and on the day he will make it public, …

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 thriller (which puts me in even more of an optimistic mood due to it being one of my preferred genres of choice). Yes it is based on a graphic novel and yes technology in the wild west has been implemented …

**1/2 out of ****     What is there was a pill for instant awesomeness and intelligence? This is a question that Neil Burger's "Limitless" attempts to give some insight into, with a plot that involves such a drug and the many people that could make use of it. He does well in adapting the novel, "The Dark Fields", for his film; which is fast-paced, fun, entertaining at the core, …

Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film)
I’m generally a big fan of westerns, and I’ve been known to dabble in the science fiction genre from time to time. So on paper, Jon Favreau’s latest Cowboys and Aliens is a perfect fit. While I can definitely come to appreciate the general ridiculousness of it all and end up having a blast with it as the fun late summer film it is, the abundance of hands tweaking the script turns …

Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film)
No matter how you slice it, 2011 has not been a very fun-filled summer.  Most of the movies have either been very forgettable or they haven't really had much of an impact.  Cowboys and Aliens doesn't do much to change most of this.  It's certainly a lot more fun than most of the movies around this summer, but it doesn't quite leave the lasting impression you'd hope …
