the purge
When you first hear about the premise of The Purge it's one of the few moments where you cock an eyebrow and think to yourself that it's actually an interesting idea.  It is, after all, a …

Iron Man 3 (2013 film)
The Iron Man Trilogy has always been enjoyable to me, even though it's formulaic in every way.  The character depth is never really there and when it tries for it the results are pretty damn …

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
I'm taking a risk in saying I actually liked Star Trek into Darkness.  On a website such as Lunch.com where liking just about any damn mainstream movie (let alone J.J. Abrams) is considered not …

Oz: The Great and Powerful (2013 film)
The original Wizard of Oz from 1939 has always amused me.  For as much as people yell at me for not caring about whether or not the movie follows the source material, I'm always surprised that …

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013 film)
There is a certain amount of fun in watching some of the most terrible movies out there.  The Resident Evil movies are bad for instance, but they're funny bad.  Movies that you can see, …

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012 film)
In 2001, The Lord of the Rings kicked off what some say is the nerd takeover of Hollywood.  At that time the idea that you could turn J.R.R. Tolkein's books into films and have them be successful …

'The Twilight Saga-Breaking Dawn-Part 2
When it comes to the Twilight movies, I enjoy immensely.  No, they're not good movies by any stretch of the imagination, but they are enjoyable bad movies because of just how laughable they really …

Wreck it Ralph
As a gamer, I've sat back and watched for years as television, film and basically every other medium on the face of the planet has been unable to understand video games.  When a movie about music …

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
In 1992, Batman The Animated Series came around and changed just about everything we knew about animated television shows.  Especially those based off comic books.  The show itself has left …

C.R.A.Z.Y.
For those who don't know, I enjoy quite a bit of Queer Cinema and while I don't review it nearly as much as I'd like to on this site, there are times when I watch a movie that I can't …

The Dark Knight Rises
Comic book movies have a strange formula about them as of late.  The first film is usually pretty good by conventional standards and then the second one blows everyone out of the water.  This …

Generally speaking, Pixar movies are usually fantastic movies.  They're not movies that are just "good."  They're often great.  Really great and they often stand out because …

Men in Black III
In 1997 the first Men in Black movie came out.  It was different, it was weird.  It exceeded expectations.  So when Men in Black 2 came out in 2002 it was exciting to see... but they did …

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012 film)
When the original Spider Man trilogy came out ten years ago in 2002 it paved the way forward for just about every comic book movie.  It was the movie that really popularized the trend of doing so.  …

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
So this is going to be a long one, for reasons that I have to be somewhat firm with.  The Lorax is an annoying movie that, for the most part, is bad for the reason every other Dr. Suess adaptation …

Men in Black
In the summer of 1997 Men in Black more or less blindsided us.  Not many of us knew what it was or what we should expect from it.  It was based off a comic book that (for the most part) very …

The Secret World of Arrietty
The Secret World of Arietty isn't exactly a new film.  Like many Studio Ghibli films it was released in Japan long before it was brought here to US Shores.  But also like so many of those …

The Lion King 3D
Reissuing movies in 3D has become the new fad.  While some say it's to milk some of the classic films (and it's most certainly true) I'm not one who believes 3D doesn't have it's …

Titanic 3D
I first saw Titanic in 1998 as a child of about eleven years old.  It's not exactly the kind of movie an 11 year old should be watching, but I recall liking it then.  When I was a teenager …

'The Avengers' Directed By Joss Whedon
The Avengers is pretty much a summer blockbuster through and through.  If there were a rule book for summer blockbusters, The Avengers would've written it.  Cheesy one liners?  Check.  …

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Uncharted 2 ended up being a smash hit. Perhaps one of the best video games sequels ever produced. It was better than the first game in almost every conceivable way. It's hard to imagine any follow …
