Secretariat Theatrical Review

Ayla examined her son again, trying to remember the reflection of herself.  My forehead bulges out like that, she thought, reaching up to touch her face.  And that bone under his month, I've got one too.  But he's got brow ridges, and I haven't.  Clan people have brow ridges.  If I'm different, why shouldn&#...

There are a lot of movies right now about vampires. So much so that it is difficult not to feel overwhelmed by all of it. So it is refreshing to find a movie that steps a little bit out of the standard vampire myth and instead gives us a commentary on relationships. Let me in was originally a Swedish movie about a young boy whose neighbor, a young ... Read More

The Social Network Theatrical Review

(Stpehen Compall)  10/01/2010 8:06 AM EST
What most surprised me regarding The Social Network was the degree to which I sympathized with its subject, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg, Zombieland, Solitary Man).  I've followed the recent controversy surrounding Facebook's poor privacy and found their response entirely lacking, if not surprising.  But this film is ...

Back in the 1980's Oliver Stone made a movie called Wall Street which was a social commentary of the way American business operated during that generation. The character of Richard Gekko (Michael Douglas) was a personification of that time and culture. His speech about greed being good perfectly encapsulated the thought process of that decade. Now ...

(Chris Rebholz)  09/28/2010 10:45 AM EST
Legend of the Guardians is based on a book series of the same name. It is about a young owl named Soren who dreams of one day becoming a guardian of Ga'Hoole and fighting noble battles. Naturally these books were adapted into a movie. Directed by Zack Snyder of 300 fame, the trailers for the movie came off a bit difficult to translate if you weren'... Read More

(Marco Chacon)  09/24/2010 10:36 AM EST
It's good to see Kristen Bell getting work. I've liked her ever since Veronica Mars and her natural charisma lights up the screen when she's on it. When you throw in Sigourney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis (who play the 'grown ups' in the movie) you have a cast that ought to be solid gold. Unfortunately, it's not. "You Ag... Read More

Devil Theatrical Review

(Chris Rebholz)  09/21/2010 10:29 PM EST
A few years ago we saw the first of many M. Night Shyamalan movies, The Sixth Sense. That movie came out of left field and astounded audiences with the deep well of emotion from all the characters and also the final surprise ending. As time passed more movies from him cropped up and it seems as though he has become a one trick pony. His most recent... Read More

Easy A Theatrical Review

(Nathan M Rose)  09/16/2010 10:51 PM EST
In the spirit of such films as Sixteen Candles, Can't Buy Me Love, 10 Things I Hate About You, and 13 Going on 30, Screen Gems releases Easy A, starring Emma Stone on audiences this week.   Easy A premise is simple enough --  a modern-day telling of the Scarlet Letter. Olive (Emma Stone, SuperBad, Zombieland) is a simple high school stude... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  09/15/2010 10:27 AM EST
It's fairly typical of Hollywood that once a certain genre of movie catches on we will begin to see similar types being pumped out over the next few years. At the moment we have the "assassin trained in every way possible" character. One of the first movies to really deliver in this area was The Bourne Identity in which a would-be killer ... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  09/12/2010 12:34 PM EST
There have been a lot of movies based off of video games. It is as common today as the comic book movie. Quite frankly though, most of these movies have never been very good. They almost always come off even more cartoonish and cliché than the games they are based on.Resident Evil is a game that has been around for many years, going back to ... Read More
