Mission Impossible III (Two-Disc Collector's
The Tom Cruise vehicle that has been the "Mission Impossible trilogy" (based on the classic television series) has for the most part been an uneven (often lackluster) film experience. `Mission: …

Collateral (Two-Disc Special Edition) (2004)
Like good jazz Collateral is able to quietly move into your head before washing you away in an ocean of smooth chaos. A tale of two men from two separate backgrounds meet one night in this dreary character-study …

Dawn of the Dead
George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead is a classic horror movie that really didn't need to be retold...but that's exactly what director Zack Snyder has done so I guess I should review it after having seen …
reviewed Shutter Island (movie). August 20, 2010
Shutter Island
'Shutter Island' is a suspenseful thriller that holds up to films such as 'The Sixth Sense'. Of course, that should be the very least you get when you put a legendary director like Martin Scorsese on …

Splice (2010 movie)
I hope there is a director's cut of Splice. I really, really, REALLY hope with the DVD it will be like 2007's I Am Legend and have on a bonus disc the film's original ending. Why do I say this? Well, …

The Princess and the Frog (Single Disc Widescreen)
All I can say is this: It's about time! Once again the 2D animation department at Disney has completed a theatrical release. Now, I may not be young, and I may not have children of my own, but I know …

Blood Diamond (Widescreen Edition) (2006)
Blood Diamond is one of those "Public Awareness" films that accomplishes its goal without relying on much preaching. In a way you could easily classify Blood Diamond as being a Hotel Rwanda film for audience …

James Cameron's Avatar. What more is there? This is a movie I've anticipated for years and the pay-off is a spectacle of mostly seamless special effects partnered with slam-bang action. It is an entertaining …

I honestly don't think I can seriously review an Uwe Boll movie, but since this was the first of his garbage I ever lay witness to I might as well give it some effort.     Movie Checklist: …

Freddy vs. Jason (2009)
I really have no idea what the point of this movie was, exactly, but I certainly did not enjoy the premise of the ordeal. It's kind of fun to watch Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees duke it out, but overall …
