Magic Mike Theatrical Review

Bare bods and fast music can't save Magic Mike.  Even if the ladies think they are being entertained, it's all a façade to cash in on a voyeuristic business that has clung to the sexual 90's.  It may be a take on Tatum's early teen romp to fill his pockets, but the actor did better with his "Step-up" acting than he does h...

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter": Those four words, strung together in that order, sound like a lot of fun, don't they? It's a totally ridiculous premise, this notion that the 16th U.S. president lived a whole other secret life, prowling about at night, seeking out bloodsuckers. But it's a creative one, and it should have prov... Read More

The latest feature from cinema Juggernaut Pixar is  Brave and while visually it is everything we've come to expect from that think-tank of geniuses it might disappoint many loyal fans. This marks the 13th animated feature from the world's most consistently successful film company and the first (for them)  set in that version ...

(Roger Longenbach)  06/22/2012 8:36 AM EST
Usually with a disaster movie you follow the main characters as they fight for survival.  In this case, we have something different: there is no hope for survival.  What would you do?  Would you party like its 1999?  Would you loot?  Would you continue about your daily life?  Would you spend it with your family?  ...

Rock of Ages Theatrical Review

(Paul Kates)  06/14/2012 9:43 AM EST
The raw edge of 1980's rock music, mixed liberally with the associated lingo, leads to a fun-packed, two hours of movie fun in the form of Rock of Ages. It should have you singing along to a whole host of recognizable hits that have stood the test of time.Based on the hit Broadway show, the movie follows wannabe singers Sherrie (Julianne Hough) and...

Coming off a dismal outing with Jack and Jill, Adam Sandler releases his newest comedy That's My Boy trying to reconnect to his fans.  Partnering up with Andy Samberg and going old school he makes the film a hit. The very funny story builds during each act leading to a very humorous ending. The silly little plot goes like this; w... Read More

(Paul Kates)  06/08/2012 7:57 AM EST
In 1979, Director Ridley Scott gave the world one of the most iconic sci-fi horror movies we had ever seen — Alien — and with it a tagline as recognizable today as it was then: "In space, no one can hear you scream." Even today, those words have the ability to send a shiver down your spine. Alien and its no... Read More

Jumping to the top of the list of my 2012 comedy favorites Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted it's not just for kids. The laughter filled animated adventure tops its two previous films with a very engaging story, excellent 3D and new fun characters.  Don't be hesitant to take your family to one of the brightest animated films to come out this ...

The Brother's Grimm fairy tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" comes to the screen portraying its malevolent power and dark imagery. What makes Snow White and the Huntsman worth the watch is the exciting story, brilliant sets and scenery, inventive cinematography, nicely placed CGI and costumes.  If you want to see the classic ...

After squirming in my seat trying to get more comfortable several times I began to realize that there's something wrong with Men in Black 3, it drones, creating a lackadaisical mood that destroys any comical stimulus.  That said, the film however reeks with plot, silly alien characters and amazing guns and gadgets.  But, the glitz and...
