Red Riding Hood Theatrical Review

Back in 2008, an indie film director, Catherine Hardwicke, made a big splash in Hollywood with the first film in the Twilight saga.   Although not liked by all, her perception of showing teenage angst and true love rocketed the film to stardom and has now become part of Hollywood lore.  She tries to strike lightning twice this spring...

Rain Man Blu-ray Review
Rain Man   Rain Man Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  03/03/2011 1:20 PM EDT
Sometimes when you see a particular film it stays with you no matter much time has passed. Rain Man with Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman is just such a film.   Arriving in theaters in the 1980's, it quickly won audiences over with its story of Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) who is an L.A. based auto dealer/hustler/bookie. Charlie has been angry fo... Read More

Rango Theatrical Review
Rango   Rango Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  03/03/2011 10:36 AM EDT
Pirates of the Caribbean's director, Gore Verbinski (The Ring), has re-teamed with Johnny Depp (Alice in Wonderland, From Hell), and some other of his pirate gang this year to bring audiences around the world, Rango.  Rango is a very strange tale of a lizard (Depp), who after spending a very unusual life in a fish tank, ends up in the Moha...

Drive Angry Theatrical Review
Drive Angry   Drive Angry Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  02/25/2011 7:57 AM EDT
The first I heard of Drive Angry, I was attending Comic Con 2010.  The premise seemed likely enough to be a decent film -- Milton (Nicolas Cage; The Rock, Con-Air) breaks out of hell to save his granddaughter and to avenge the death of his daughter.   Fast forward eight months to February 25, 2011 -- Drive Angry is released to an audience...

Hall Pass Theatrical Review
Hall Pass   Hall Pass Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  02/24/2011 6:58 PM EDT
There are a few films that have come out in the past 2 years that have tried to recreate the magic of The Hangover and unfortunately none of them have really succeeded in doing it. Now another film comes along that promises the same kind of hi-jinks. The movie is Hall Pass, starring Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer and Christina Appleg... Read More

Breakout Kings Theatrical Review
Premiere   Breakout Kings Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  02/22/2011 7:36 PM EDT
A lot of TV shows employ a certain gimmick to ensnare audiences, shows like CSI, The Mentalist, Bones, and Breaking Bad are perfect examples. Using gimmicks like quirky characters, extreme situations, or just great writing all of them have done a great job of putting aside some disbelief in order to enjoy a good story.    Breakout Kings, ...

Unstoppable Blu-ray Review
Unstoppable   Unstoppable Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  02/21/2011 10:58 PM EDT
Sometimes you can't help but enjoy a movie that, in your heart, you know is completely ridiculous but does exactly what it promises; has great action, simple plot and doesn't talk down to audiences.   Unstoppable is that kind of film; it stars Denzel Washington and Chris Pine as two railroad operators who get caught up in an outrageous situati...

Due Date Blu-ray Review
Due Date   Due Date Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  02/21/2011 10:45 PM EDT
Due Date stars Robert Downey Jr. and Zack Galifianakis as two road companions on the worst possible trip in history. For anyone who was born before the 1980's it will bring up memories of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Unlike that film though this film feels the need to up the crazy quotient by 100%; perhaps it's indicative of the times we live in... Read More

I Am Number Four Theatrical Review
I Am Number Four   I Am Number Four Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  02/19/2011 10:41 AM EDT
Michael Bay certainly knows how to make an action movie; his newest film I Am Number Four is a perfect example of large special effects and straight-forward acting. The film stars newcomer Alex Pettyfer as a young boy on the run from a monstrous enemy who seeks only his death.   The film opens on a forest at night and two people trying their b... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  02/17/2011 11:09 AM EDT
Unknown, the latest thriller film from Dark Castle and Warner Bros., stars Liam Neeson and is based on a story by Didier Van Cauwelaert.   Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson: Taken, Batman Begins) and his wife (January Jones: X-Men: First Class, Mad Men) head to Germany to speak at a conference in Berlin.  However, while checking in at the ho...
