Miss March DVD Review

(Marco Chacon)  07/26/2009 6:30 PM EDT
The title comes from the story.  There are two high school buddies: one an uptight virgin who badly preaches, on abstinence and is celibate with his lovely, Raquel Alessi, girlfriend -- the other dumb-and-dumber.  When the "good" or maybe just "average" buddy is about to have sex for the first time, he falls down the s...

Disney has decided that 3-D is the future of motion pictures at your local cinema, and with the exception of the "extra fee for 3-D", they may be right. While the current version of 3-D technology (instead of the red/blue 3-D from the 1950s) got kickstarted by the short films in the Disney theme parks (such as Captain EO, Honey I Shr...

300 Blu-ray Review
300: The Complete Experience   300 Blu-ray Review
(Marco Chacon)  07/23/2009 11:39 AM EDT
If there was a single disc I would buy someone who just got a Blu-Ray player, 300 is definitely near the top of the list.  Although almost any movie will look great on Blu-Ray - very few would suffer as much comparatively on DVD.  The reason for this is that the movie is about the great historical battle at Thermopylae where a tiny force ...

Anthony Hopkins plays a brilliant psychopath who coldly murders his cheating wife.  He then has to face off against Ryan Gosling, a go-getter prosecutor, who is about to make the leap to the big-leagues in a private firm and decides to take the last case (Hopkins') because it looks like a slam dunk!  After all, they have the...

(Roger Longenbach)  07/16/2009 8:56 AM EDT
I don't know if it's just my luck, or just the quality of movies this summer, but this movie is another hard one to judge. If you're a fan of the books, or have followed the previous 5 movies and want to continue the story, you're going to see this movie even if I tell you to not waste your time. So, let's get down to business to see what I th... Read More

"It is easy to shoot an art movie in a winery in the South of France.  But people have no idea how hard it is to create something like Transformers.  They (the critics) review me before they have even seen the movie."-- Michael BayThe real question is, "What was Michael Bay thinking"? Did he sincerely believe tha...

(Roger Longenbach)  06/25/2009 9:23 AM EDT
This is one of the hard movies to review, because I could give this movie an F and if you are a fan of the first movie, you're probably going to go see it in the theater anyway. While I did enjoy the movie, from a overall movie perspective the movie doesn't quite cut it. Set two years after the events of the first movie, we see Sam Witwic...

The Hangover Theatrical Review
The Hangover   The Hangover Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  06/22/2009 7:04 PM EDT
The Hangover fits into a category that is somewhat fuzzy and defined as "guy movies". That is, there are few women, there is a lot of male-bonding, and there are wacky, usually R-rated hijinks (well, X-Rated, but what you see in the movie will be R). Also, usually in these movies, the main characters behave stupidly -- or at least hormona... Read More
