Terminator 2: Judgment Day
The Terminator is one of the most iconic characters in popular culture, but his track record is rather bumpy. He had a strong start in a debut movie that is a classic of science fiction. He followed it up with his defining moment in a movie that became a classic across all genres. After that, there were two more movies and a TV show which make the argument for The Terminator existing on a split timeline. …

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 in there with the great wave of corporate teen idols who kept sneaking into the last minute 90's pop culture scene. It would have starred one of the momentary flash-pan movie stars who were already known …

The Social Network
I take back every bad thing I ever said about Justin Timberlake. It's that he came riding in on the back of a popular boy band, and we all know how that usually turns out, right? Well, if you were among the many, many Timberlake bashers, you may take heart in the fact that his singing hasn't really changed one bit. However, he has proven to be a great pop music innovator, but what really surprised …

The Social Network
    In the opening scene of Social Network we eavesdrop on a conversation between Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend. At the end of the scene Mark's now ex-girlfriend sums up his treatment of people in a succinct statement. She told him that he would probably do something big and complain that girls didn’t like him because he was a nerd. She went on to say …

Due Date
** out of ****     "Due Date" is a mediocre follow-up to a fairly-solid film; that being Todd Phillip's "The Hangover", which was like an insane carnival of twisted, warped laughter. It took advantage of its Las Vegas setting and let its characters run wild; but without showing us how they took their precious little time about it. For the most time, they're just bumbling idiots.   & …

Inception teaser poster
For months, just like everyone else on Earth, I've been hearing and seeing the buzz surrounding Christopher Nolan's newest film, Inception. However, due to time constraints caused by college and other personal matters, seeing the movie wasn't high on my list of priorities. Since I just got a mini vacation from college this week, I found some time to finally watch it, and I must tell you, …

Inception teaser poster
At present, both the demand for and expectations of Christopher Nolan's big-budget conceptual genre offerings are equally high, and he still hasn't failed to deliver. Nolan possesses a rare talent for presenting difficult concepts and elaborate plot devices in a wholly accessible fashion; as a result, he's one of very few living Anglophone filmmakers who actually invests a modicum of intelligence …

Due Date
Robert Downey Jr how you break my heart. Not even my love for you can save me from the pains in which you inflicted upon me during Due Date.  Not even my love for the obseenly odd Zach Galifianakis spared me a pain that could only rival that of child birth.  OK, that is probably a bit of a stretch, but I think you get what I am trying to say. In true Todd Phillips (director) style, this …

The Town
While I have some mixed feelings about the abilities of Ben Affleck as an actor, he has shown himself to be a very talented director. Unfortunately, Affleck already seems to be repeating himself with the film The Town, a crime drama that is reminiscent of his earlier film Gone Baby Gone as well as Martin Scorsese's The Departed. The story follows a group of masked bank robbers lead by Ben Affleck …

The Town
  Ben Affleck’s directorial debut, “Gone Baby Gone,”  starred his baby brother and the city of Boston, one of the few settings in recent movies that can almost function as a character.  I loved that movie; so much that I made it my number 1 film of 2007.  So imagine my excitement when I found out that Affleck was directing another crime drama set in his hometown.   …

The Social Network
I'm still a little surprised at the amount of acclaim that has been heaped onto this film. Personally, while I did find it to be well acted and very well directed, I just was never that taken with the story or the way that it was being told. I can't claim to know Mark Zuckerberg, nor can I claim to know much about the foundation of Facebook, but this film is told from an angle that is designed …

The Town
When looking for a good heist film I also try to look for something that will either have me on the edge of my seat or something strong actors that the characters keep me entertained.  The Town is a film that gives you a handful of shining moments with it's characters and just enough suspense and action to keep you from walking out of the theater.      I will admit that …

The Town
This is one of my favorite films and that may be because I have been following Renner's career since his first film but hey I enjoyed it. I also recommend that you check out Renner in "Dahmer" as it is one of the best performances ever. I do highly recommend this film and say go ahead and buy it, skip the rental. I bought it the day it was released and have watched it many times since. …

      THE TOWN      When this film was first released I was all kinds of excited since I am a huge Jeremy Renner and a Ben Affleck fan as well. Add in that not only do I like those two as actors but I thought Affleck's first film "Gone Baby Gone" was great. So needless to say that we [my little group of friends and such] really wanted to see this …

Due Date
I seem to be one of the few people who found the characters in this film to be so unpleasant that they were sort of lovable. Oh well, I also think Oscar the Grouch is sweet.      From the guys who made the uproariously funny and politically incorrect film The Hangover comes another film (perhaps more politically incorrect and certainly less funny) Due Date. The story is very straight …

The Town
A neighborhood in Boston called Charlestown is well known because it has the most number of armed robbers in the U.S. Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck), James Coughlin (Jeremy Renner), Albert 'Gloansy' Magloan (Slaine), and Desmond Elden (Owen Burke) are all robbers living in this neighborhood. Doug and James are like brothers to each other, as the Coughlin family basically took Doug in since his …

Pretentious, dull, witless, stupid, cliché and quite frankly unbearable Todd Phillips'  follow up to his critical and commercial smash hit  "The Hangover",  "Due Date" is the biggest miscalculation of any comedy I have seen since oh... "The Last Airbender" this a gross disgusting film with two of the most unlikable lead character to appear …

The Town
Ben Affleck is undeniably a very gifted director but with his second outing "The Town" Affleck strikes all the right notes on all the wrong keys. "The Town" is a gritty, violent and at times intelligent heist thriller that lacks any (if it had any) originality to it. This film seems to meandering and uninterested in engaging in including its audience in on their plan. Now do not …
