30 Minutes or Less Theatrical Review

When it comes to comedies the simplest plot device is the easiest one. When you look at films like Harold & Kumar, Pineapple Express, or The Hangover you can see how a simple scenario can become fodder for uproarious hilarity. That being said, it doesn't always work out that way and in the case of 30 Minutes or Less we are left wanting more... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  8/6/2011 12:44 PM EST
Ten years ago a film came out that did more than simply tell another teen high school drama, it posed questions that dealt with philosophical, theological and scientific elements. But what this film did was not bother to pander to the audience and simply give them the answers in a neat little row. Instead it left us to ponder on our own what the an... Read More

In the 1980's there were a few hits that not only helped shape the career of certain actors but also left a mark on the industry as well. In the vein of the traditional romantic comedy, Overboard shines an adult light on a genre that has become marred over the recent years with whiny twenty-something's all trying to be as independent as possible. &...

Once in a while you get an off-beat comedy that attempts to tell a unique story which doesn't always resonate with audiences. Back in 1995 Get Shorty starring John Travolta as ex-mob thug Chili Palmer made something of a splash in the movie industry. Travolta's character in the film did his best to navigate his way through the world of Holl... Read More

Due to some issues in his personal life Nicholas Cage has been making some interesting choices when it comes to his acting career. The latest in these is Season of the Witch, a fantasy adventure starring the aforementioned Cage and Ron Pearlman.   The film opens with the execution of three women accused of being witches. All of the women insis... Read More

The trick with most Kung Fu movies is that you don't know what to expect with each one. While for hard core enthusiasts every martial arts film has something appealing to them, the majority of the viewing audience tend to have a rough time with it. The latest addition to this genre is called The Warrior's Way.   The film stars Dong-gun Jang as... Read More

Zookeeper Theatrical Review

A majority of the time when you attend a kids movie you have a general idea what to expect, lots of literal jokes involving bodily functions, weird faces, and an overabundance of physical comedy. Zookeeper, the new film starring Kevin James and Rosario Dawson is no exception.   James' character Griffin Keyes is your typical glass-half-full typ... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  7/4/2011 9:04 PM EST
The newest film from Tom Hanks is called Larry Crowne which is about a well-mannered middle aged man who finds himself the latest person on the unemployment line and what would at first seem to be a difficult transition winds up becoming a journey into a better life.   Larry Crowne (Hanks) is an employee of the fictional mega-store UMart. He i... Read More

Bad Teacher Theatrical Review

(Chris Rebholz)  6/24/2011 10:02 AM EST
In the vein of raunchy comedies, Bad Teacher strives to add itself to the likes of Bad Santa, Grandma's Boy, and Superbad. The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, and Justin Timberlake and follows the exploits of the teachers at John Adams Middle School or J.A.M.S as the principal likes to call it.   Diaz plays Elizabeth Hasley, a woman who ...

Cars 2 Theatrical Review
Cars 2   Cars 2 Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  6/23/2011 6:04 PM EST
The first Cars film was a send up to all the road movies of the past. The film dealt with the love America has for the open road; watching the horizon stretch out in front of you, finding those small out of the way towns that remind you of an easier time in your life, and also the loss of that era as modern progress slowly advances throughout the c...
