We Need to Talk About Kevin
Star Rating:         Are monsters born, or are they made? It’s obvious that Eva (Tilda Swinton) was ambivalent about her pregnancy, and by the time her son Kevin 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 …

   Back in the day I used to love watching teen comedy films.  I loved the cheesey 90s teen comedies with Freddy Prince, Julia Styles and Rachel Lee Cook with their random mid-story group …

   "With no power comes no responsibility.  Except that isn't true." That line from Kick Ass pretty much sums up the meta-message for Kick Ass the movie. Underdogs need …

***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 …

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 …

*** 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. …

Olive (Emma Stone) is a smart, attractive, but not particularly popular high school student. There's nothing obviously wrong with her, but for some reason, boys never notice her. That is, until she …

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, …

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) …

      This is a story about the clicheic "I need to be awesome to be liked" dogma which has spread in almost any teenager since ever. Why we need that to be liked? Why we …

It's easy to like a character, but it isn't often you come across one that you would want to actually be friends with, or maybe even wish you could be like. For me, such a character is Olive Penderghast …

   The concept of an average, every day comic book geek donning spandex attire and becoming a super-hero is one that I find quite interesting. I'm sure there are a few crazy people in the …

I absolutely recommend this one. (The new season starts Fri, Sept 24!)      It has the episodic monster-hunting of X-files, mixed with the veneration of butchness and go-it-alone …
