The Fighter Theatrical Review

Mark Wahlberg has a tendency to be type cast as the guy "from the streets" and while he has often expressed some displeasure with the kind of films offered to him there is certainly no way you can deny how well he does in these roles. His newest venture is called The Fighter, about the early years of Irish Mickey Ward and his brother, Dic... Read More

True Grit Theatrical Review

The best way to go view the latest adaption of True Grit is as its own entity. There was the first movie with the legendary John Wayne and now there is the 21st century version with Jeff Bridges. Both versions are good representations of the book by Charles Portis. Though neither can deliver the true sense of revenge that the book delivers, but wha... Read More

Rush Hour Blu-ray Review

Who doesn't love a buddy cop movie? It all started way back in the eighties with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Their on screen chemistry starting with the first of four Lethal Weapon movies set a bar all action/comedy movies to come. There have been many incarnations of this type over the years, and with varied combinations. The one, though, that br... Read More

A long distance relationship is never easy; at some point in our lives most of us have done it. This is the subject of the romantic comedy Going the Distance with Justin Long and Drew Barrymore. Justin Long plays Garrett, a thirty-something who works for a record label. Drew Barrymore plays Erin, also a thirty-something who is working as an in... Read More

There is something to be said for the blend of action, comedy and romance. When done right you have enjoyable film that any movie patron will enjoy.

Cyrus DVD Review
Cyrus   Cyrus DVD Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/7/2010 10:38 PM EDT
The movie Cyrus focuses on the life of a man who has succumbed to the idea of being alone for the rest of his life. The man, John, played by John C Reilly was divorced from his wife over seven years ago and never truly accepted the idea of losing her nor has he really gotten over her. His nights are spent by himself searching the internet for "... Read More

Love & Other Drugs Theatrical Review

(Chris Rebholz)  12/1/2010 4:47 PM EDT
When going to see a movie you have certain expectations. If a film is billed as a comedy than you expect to have a laugh filled experience. The same can be said for the other genres as well. Sometimes there are movies that try to break the mold they are cast in; Love & Other Drugs is just such a movie.Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jamie Randall who wor... Read More

Faster Theatrical Review

(Chris Rebholz)  12/1/2010 3:23 PM EDT
Faster is a classic revenge tale combined with the simplicity of the grindhouse movies of the 70's. After a steady career in wrestling Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson moved on from that arena to pursue a life of acting. Surprisingly he actually has solid comedic timing which can be seen from his appearances on Saturday Night Live. Naturally bec... Read More

Russell Crowe has certainly been a name to draw in movie-goers. With films like Gladiator and 3:10 to Yuma under his belt we know that he has the acting chops to keep us locked in our seats. Paul Haggis has certainly become a name in the industry, writing such movies as Crash and Million Dollar Baby. Naturally when you find out that these two indiv... Read More

V Blu-ray Review
V: The Complete First Season   V Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  11/7/2010 2:45 PM EDT
For many, many years now Hollywood has been going back in time to remake films and TV shows for new audiences. Sometimes this works out but as most of you know that isn't always the case. The newest TV show to get the 21st century update is V, which originally aired in the 80's as a mini-series and went on to become a short lived television show. L... Read More
