13 DVD Review

(Chris Rebholz)  12/7/2011 9:46 AM EDT
The film 13 is a type of Russian roulette for American audiences. There's a decent amount of star power and established actors collected for this, at times, drama, and those new to the premise might find themselves drawn into this foul underworld saga.An electrician watching his family slide into crippling debt, Vince (Sam Riley) finds his curiosit...

When people dismiss New York City and its denizens as pretentious, self-absorbed, hipster snobs who only pull their noses out of their own rear ends long enough to look down on Gotham outsiders, it's because of derivative movies like The Art of Getting By.Freddie Highmore, so charming alongside Johnny Depp in Marc Forster's delightful in Fi...

Arthur Christmas Theatrical Review

(Chris Rebholz)  11/27/2011 4:28 PM EDT
Arthur Christmas is a great holiday film for the new and old generations. It's a movie that kids can watch with their parents and grandparents and everybody will laugh and enjoy it. It has something for everyone while still staying true to its values and cute storyline. It is unlikely it will become a holiday tradition or must-see Christmas flick, ... Read More

David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method is a film that grows on you the more you think about it; even considering the filmmaker's recent efforts, it is a picture that you keep waiting to get going, but it never quite does; however it nestles itself into your mind, where its oddness and intricacies continue to resonate long after the credits h...

Water for Elephants Blu-ray Review
Water for Elephants   Water for Elephants Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  11/8/2011 8:54 AM EDT
There's a great movie to be made about the history of the circus. Water for Elephants strives to be that film, but misses the mark. There is also an intriguing drama to be fashioned out of the rituals and customs of those who've lived their lives under the Big Top. There have always been great romances created out of star-crossed characters... Read More

Tower Heist Theatrical Review

(Chris Rebholz)  11/6/2011 8:19 PM EDT
Rush Hour's Brett Ratner returns to direct Tower Heist, a lighthearted film with an impressive ensemble cast. Stiller plays the lead Josh, a workaholic manger of ‘The Tower'; a set of elite apartments in New York owned by one Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda). Josh has always looked up to Shaw and the two have something of a friendship they are even ch... Read More

Writer/director Andrew Niccol's films make you pause and require some smart thinking. His film Gattaca, which he wrote, was also his first directing debut and a favorite of some sci-fi fans. Next came The Truman Show, starring Jim Carrey and written and produced by Niccol, which received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Screenplay. N... Read More

Bones Blu-ray Review
Bones: The Complete Sixth Season   Bones Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/24/2011 7:02 PM EDT
There are a lot of forensic police procedurals on television at the moment, each with their own unique style and voice. What really makes each of these shows special isn't just how they are done but the fans who tune in every week to watch them. Since its inception, Bones has drawn in a strong and loyal audience who continue to return each week to ... Read More

The Three Musketeers Theatrical Review

(Chris Rebholz)  10/23/2011 2:40 PM EDT
It is beyond amazing at how easily someone can take a classic tale and turn it into something unentertaining. What was once an epic tale has been watered down for the sake of the 3D craze and instead focuses on a dress wearing Milla Jovovich who is essentially incorporating all the moves from her Resident Evil films.It isn't too surprising to see h...

Once again we find ourselves anticipating yet another comic book movie. This time around it is the classic hero, Green Lantern who takes center stage in the tale featuring his origin.Ryan Reynolds stars as the main character Hal Jordan, a test pilot who works for Ferris Air. At the outset we see a familiar scenario play out in which a young boy, wh... Read More
