Shaun of the Dead
Like a true American, I think everything is better with a British accent, and this zombie spoof is no exception.  I'm not sure it would be as funny if it were American-made, but that's rather besides …

Kick Ass (Movie)
I just saw this not an hour ago and I can safely say that it is one of the best comic book films of all time. The acting is great, the story (essentially about an amateur superhero's days in crime-fighting) …

Easy A
Like I said in my review of Zombieland, Emma Stone is one of the big rising stars on screen today, and Easy A was made as her leading star turn. It definitely worked, because she did great and therefore, …

Easy A
*** out of ****     "Easy A" is one of the best teen comedies in years. It is less crude and more thoughtful than the premise suggests, and I found myself respecting it throughout. …

Princess Mononoke (Dub) (1999)
How do you review something so compelling, so engaging and so brilliant that to do so would make one seem like a boy with a huge crush? Roger Ebert placed the film as one of his 10 best films of all time …

Kick Ass (Movie)
***1/2 out of ****     "Kick-Ass" pretty much kicks ass in every way possible. It's profane, slightly irrelevant, and equally as entertaining to watch as it was to read when it was …

Holy shit! I'm still awake after watching this?! I've tried Valerian root, exercise, visiting testicular cancer support groups, shooting my partner in Alaskan fog and now I've endured …

Shaun of the Dead
**** out of ****    Edgar Wright is the kind of guy who I would best describe as nice. A director of comedy films - always has, always will be, I hope - , it's surprising that one …

Easy A
Easy A is a 90's movie. More specifically, it's a 90's teen flick in every possible respect. If it had been released in its proper time frame, it would have tacked itself onto a 1999 release, getting …

We Need to Talk About Kevin
**** out of ****    The first shot in Lynne Ramsay's "We Need to Talk About Kevin" is of an open window. What lies beyond that window shocked me more than anything I have seen so far …

Gangster Squad
In light of the Colorado theater shootings last year, director Ruben Fleischer’s “Gangster Squad” was delayed for almost 5 months with its release. This was because the filmmakers wanted …

Gangster Squad
Gangster Squad is just the kind of movie you need every once in a while.  A true turn you're brain off experience.  It won't insult you're intelligence and it won't insult you …

We Need to Talk About Kevin
So this is another book to film adaptation. Considering I haven't read the book I cannot compare them (although I do plan on reading it eventually). The film was alright. I think Ezra Miller and Tilda …

Divergent
I personally am I huge fan of dystopian set books. Divergent was another one of these, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Think The Hunger Games meets The Princess Diaries. Young girl taken from her usual lifestyle …

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments)
I was utterly disappointed with this book. With all the hype built up about it with the film and fandom I expected more. The lead character,Clary, is extremely boring, the story line never really takes …

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner Trilogy, Book 1)
If you're going to read any book set in the dystopian future, read The Maze Runner.   I fell in love with The Maze Runner simply from the summary on goodreads.com, and it did not disappoint.   …

The series starts when Jen Barber, after claiming on her C.V that she has 'a lot of experience with computers' is promoted to head of the I.T department, knowing nothing about I.T. She works with …

Howl's Moving Castle
Definitely my favourite Studio Ghibli film so far. I thought it was a billion times more thought provoking and aesthetically pleasing than Spirited Away which everyone seems to love (even though that's …

Ryan Gosling in this film is so perfect. He barely says a word yet all the emotions that come from him are awesome. Such a good, tense movie. Carey Mulligan was in it, who I HATE, but not even she could …

As a kid, when it came to the heroes that I liked to watch on television or the comics I read, there was always this sort of sense of wanting to be a superhero.  If you were one of those really dorky …

I've had my fair share of watching comic book based movies (Spider-Man, Fantastic 4, Iron Man, X-Men, Watchmen, Batman) and each of them have unique ways of presenting the super hero and their heroic …

Have you ever wanted to be a superhero. Kick-Ass is about four very different people who take very different paths to become superheroes. With a few exceptions, they do provide some innovative fighting …
