The Conspirator Theatrical Review

It is rare to find someone who doesn't know the story about the assassination of President Lincoln. It is part of our early education in history; we learned how he helped end the civil war and slavery. But like all historical fact, there is always more to be learned. This is the point of the new film The Conspirator starring James McAvoy, Robin... Read More

There are always a few movies that come out and make you wonder, "How did this get made?" Season of the Witch is that kind of movie. It opens with a hanging of three women who are accused of witchcraft. They try to convince the priest of the their innocence and of course he wont hear it. Afterwards the priest attempts to read the wom... Read More

The Warrior's Way Theatrical Review

(Eric English)  12/5/2010 6:39 PM EDT
There are a lot of good Kung-Fu movies out there and there are a lot of bad Kung-Fu movies out there. The Warrior's Way is one of those movies that could fall somewhere in the middle of those ranges depending on your point of view.The movie opens with the Yang, played by Dong-gun Jang, who is a legendary assassin/swordsman working for an obviou...

Based on the long running newspaper comic strip of the same name "Marmaduke" came to the big screen as a live action/computer animated film in the summer of 2010.

The Blind Side Theatrical Review
The Blind Side   The Blind Side Theatrical Review
(Eric English)  5/5/2010 7:54 PM EDT
Hollywood was literally hit in its "blind side" when the unassuming, rags to riches sports story "The Blind Side" was released in fall of 2009. A powerhouse, Oscar worthy performance by Sandra Bullock (Best Actress) increased the buzz surrounding the film and the demographic of people who might otherwise have skipped the film en...

Retired, grisly Korean War Vet Walt Kowalski yearns to lead a simple life, with his Pabst Blue ribbon beer, old dog Daisy and working on his classic Gran Torino automobile. When gang violence threatens his Korean neighbors, Kowalski is thrown into uncomfortable territory, becoming a mentor for a young Korean boy whose gang initiation was to steal t... Read More

Adventureland Blu-ray Review
Adventureland   Adventureland Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  8/25/2009 8:35 PM EDT
Billed as a comedy "From the director of SUPERBAD",  "Adventureland" doesn't take the gross out route with its subtle humor and is really more of a coming of age drama. If you are expecting "Van Wilder" (the movie features eternal frat boy Ryan Reynolds) or something along the lines of Judd Apatow fallace joke... Read More

Watchmen Theatrical Review
Watchmen   Watchmen Theatrical Review
(Eric English)  3/8/2009 8:34 PM EDT
An apology to the fans of the acclaimed Graphic Novel. For the uninitiated, "Watchmen" is an absolute chore to watch. Before you read any further, sorry. Nostalgia for the source material might be deep rooted, and the film may be faithful to a fault with respect to its 1986 origins. But the year is 2009 and our superheroes, and super hero...
