Black Swan Blu-ray Review
Black Swan   Black Swan Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  4/4/2011 12:27 PM EDT
Black Swan is a dark and disturbing look into the world of ballet. Admittedly that does have an air of humor about it when you give it some thought but it reality this film takes you on an unexpected journey into the mind of a young girl completely naïve to the world she already inhabits.The stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a young talented ball...

Source Code stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Captain Colter Stevens, an army helicopter pilot who has been recruited by a covert government agency to assist in tracking down a terrorist who bombed a commuter train earlier that day and now plans on expanding his destruction by wiping out Chicago.The trick with this film is that Captain Stevens is being sent...

Sucker Punch Theatrical Review
Sucker Punch   Sucker Punch Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  3/27/2011 5:37 PM EDT
Sucker Punch is a film about the power of freedom and one girl's mission to attain that goal through the power of her own will. The film is directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and this film bears his signature mark just like those previous ones. What makes this film different is that it is a unique story rather than like his two previous films ... Read More

If you could access all of your brain power and all you needed to do was take one pill a day, would you do it? That's the question at the heart of the new suspense thriller starring Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro and Abbie Cornish.Cooper is Eddie Morra, a down on his luck writer who can't seem to get out of the rut that he has dug for himself since ...

Paul Theatrical Review
Paul   Paul Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  3/21/2011 10:23 AM EDT
Paul is a somewhat offbeat comedy about a laid back alien who enlists the help of two enthusiastic geeky fan boys so he can return home. Sound familiar? It should because at the heart of this movie is a love of all things science fiction and alien.The film stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as Graeme Willy and Clive Gollings, two very innocent and lov...

Kill the Irishman Theatrical Review
Kill the Irishman   Kill the Irishman Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  3/14/2011 10:04 AM EDT
Kill the Irishman is a who's who of character actors. It features such names as Christopher Walken, Vincent D'Onofrio, Vinne Jones, Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and stars Ray Steveson. That's not to say that this makes the movie unwatchable, quite the opposite. Having all these well-known actors is what helps the movie achieve what it might not have ha... Read More

Love & Other Drugs Blu-ray Review
Love & Other Drugs   Love & Other Drugs Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  3/10/2011 11:55 AM EDT
The film Love & Other Drugs came to theaters without much fanfare. Perhaps that was because the tone of the movie never quite found its groove. The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway as Jamie and Maggie; two people who are more than opposite but wind up having an intimate and torrid affair. The characters they play are nothing we hav... Read More

Rain Man Blu-ray Review
Rain Man   Rain Man Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  3/3/2011 1:20 PM EDT
Sometimes when you see a particular film it stays with you no matter much time has passed. Rain Man with Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman is just such a film.   Arriving in theaters in the 1980's, it quickly won audiences over with its story of Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) who is an L.A. based auto dealer/hustler/bookie. Charlie has been angry fo... Read More
