While I still haven't chosen which Kubrick movie is my favorite, The Shining is easily one of my favorite movies ever.  Since I'm not one that's easy to scare, this movie is one of the …

Amazing actors wasting their time in a story that literally undoes itself not just once but twice. I watched it twice just to make sure I didn't have a stroke. Nope, I'm stroke free the movie just sucked …

Much like the other Schwarzenegger movie Commando (1985), this is a fine example of a "feel good" action movie. If you're having a bad day, this movie will cheer you up. The 80's interpretation of the …

***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 Girl Who Played With Fire (2010 movie)
I recommend this second film in the Stieg Larsson trilogy, and the other two as well. Of course the book is far better than the film. This is almost always true because the book has more details, greater …

The Devil Wears Prada
More cultural puke manifest as one hundred and nine noxious minutes of asinine posturing and nary a whit of substantive character development. It's also a terrible waste of one of the finest living Anglophone …

Unreal and too many loopholes. If it's not a science fiction and just a drama, it's a little lengthy!

Yeah......I agree with both of my cohorts here. This is ---"The Version." I've seen the oplay live, and I teach the book. Sinise and Malkovich make this one of the finest performances of the original …

Looking at the film’s title, one wouldn’t be hard-pressed to think that it is a love story; and while it is in its own way, the film has proven to be a lot more than that. Based on the novella …

Not sure where to begin with Never Let Me Go. I liked certain aspects of it and yet also was frustrated with its slightly pretentious nature. The main issue I had was that the film tries to …
