Thor (film)
**1/2 out of ****     Explosions, special effects, a sense of humor, and enthusiastic, dedicated leads. I'm getting tired of superhero movies; as 2011 seems to be a pretty big year …

Field of Dreams
If you want to really learn the spirit of the movie, visit the ballfield in Dyersville, Iowa. I have been there twice, once when there was a cornfield on the edge of the outfield. When someone walks out …

Thor (film)
I wasn't expecting much when I saw this film. I was thinking that it would be worse than Daredevil. It was actually better. Asgard had been at war with the Storm Giants but a truce now prevails. Thor …
posted a Quick Tip about The Flight of Dragons (1982 film). September 09, 2011
The Flight of Dragons
The Flight of Dragons is one of the best animated fantasy films I've ever seen. Its combination of intelligent story and heartfelt characterization distinguishes it from the majority of animated films …

The Hobbit VHS cover
Yes, it's true that while the Rankin/Bass animated film based on the original version of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit is rather light family-friendly fare, it is also true that The Hobbit as a …

Iron Man 2
Plenty of action. Plenty of drama, partying, flirting. But it lacked the heart of the first film (pardon the pun) and felt more choppy and predictable. There was one very satisfying relational moment, …
posted a Quick Tip about The Princess and the Frog (2009 movie). August 08, 2011
The Princess and the Frog (Single Disc Widescreen)
Was pleasantly surprised by the story line, which did show that hard work can lead to greater rewards and that beauty is more than just the way someone looks.

Gormenghast
This four-hour BBC production tackles the first two books of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy and does a fine job. The story is a cross between a fantasy and a gothic tale of duplicity. There are …

*** out of ****     Thank goodness that films as good as "The Toxic Avenger" exist when it comes to much needed escapism. Without these films, we might just explode from the stress …

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
A bit slow moving, but entertaining. Good intro to the second part. Wish book three was divided into two parts like book seven.

Alice in Wonderland
Twenty years ago, Tim Burton's first four feature films cemented his reputation as a reliable creator of inspired, easily digestible filmic fantasies. His string of middling-to-awful pictures over …

Tales from the Darkside: The Movie
Essentially Creepshow 3 under the title of the successful television horror series, the production of this anthology flick inherited much of the crew of the prior movies, and like them, its quality varies …

Avatar
Okay, first of all, I'd like to say that when I watched this, I didn't have high expectations for it and even with that mindset, I still felt quite cheated when Avatar was over. What really amazes …

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Special Edition
Beloved among geeks, revered by their putrid faithful, the Pythons' parody of Arthurian legend has been afforded nearly as much praise and idolatry as other venerable institutions of virginity, such …

15 - 95mins - Fantasy/Horror - 12th October 1990      WOW. Where to begin with this one. This is without a doubt the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life bar none and I've …

***1/2 out of ****     Spike Jonze is a whacky guy, with the sort of charm that only a whacky guy can possibly have. Whether the man has made great films or not doesn't matter. What …

The Fall
**** out of ****     It's so typical of most critics to attack a film that shows them something that they have never seen before. Critics claim that they understand what the term "art" …

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
After 16 years of slamming Hollywood studios for never getting our video game movies right, we finally have one that gets it exactly right. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a video game movie, even though …

The Illusionist (2010)
**** out of ****     A good friend of mine claims that two-dimensional animation is a dying breed. Few people are skilled enough to make good, hand-drawn animation anymore. And few …

I've waited a very long time to see a film adaptation of Thor hit the big screen.  I've always been a fan of Marvel's version of the God of Thunder, and I'm even a bigger fan of the …

The Book of Eli
Don't let the first 30 minutes or so of The Book of Eli fool you - it comes off as a bleak and moody mix of other post-apocalyptic stories like Mad Max and The Road, but by the time the credits roll …
