As if you didn't already know, The much-hyped sequel to the critically acclaimed reboot of the Batman franchise was released in theaters yesterday to record box office numbers (18.5 million in midnight screenings alone). While the film is entertaining and probably a better use of your money than 2 gallons of gasoli...

Cloverfield Theatrical Review

Cloverfield. Got your attention already, eh?  Ok we have a kick ass trailer, a big mystery about "the monster", months and month of speculation and viral marketing (slusho.com?). The web hype machine hit feverish paces over this one, and while not as big a disappointment as "Snakes On A Plane", Cloverfield simply fails to l... Read More

Spider-man 3 Theatrical Review

A big budget, blockbuster Spiderman film should be executed as flawlessly as a spider winds her web. Each piece carefully planned, executed perfectly, and ultimatly neccesary to the beauty and efficiency of the completed structure. Unfortunately, in Spiderman 3, director Sam Raimi fails to establish any sort o... Read More

"Sometimes there's a man, sometimes there's a dude..." So begins 1998's Coen brothers cult classic "The Big Lebowski", and for those of you playing along at home, you've already done two shots. You see, the legendary status of this comic gem on college campuses has lead to the creation of the "Big Lebowski drinking game&quo... Read More

After winning the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in Monster's Ball, Halle Berry's took a very dark and disappointing turn. Perhaps the single most critically panned film in the years the followed was the ill-fated "Catwoman" in which the only watch able thing was Berry in her cat suit.Another, less well known, dark entry into ...

Warning: This Review Contains Spoilers.Of all the powers of all the mutants in the X-men series, perhaps the most powerful of all would be the ability to make Kelsey Grammer look cool as Beast. It turns out the film makers don't have that power, but they do a decent of job of wrapping up the X-men trilogy in the action-packed X-Men 3: The Last Stan... Read More

Wedding Crashers Theatrical Review

The Rules of crashing a wedding go something like this: Rule #2: "Never use your real name."   Rule #28: "Make sure there's an open bar". Rule #8: "Be the life of the party." Rule #13: "Bridesmaids are desperate: console them."In 2005's hit comedy "Wedding Crashers" Vince Vaughn and O... Read More

If you have ever been to a White Castle restaurant you know the aroma of the small square burger patties, topped with grilled onions and a warm chewy pickle sold by the sackful. Its the ultimate late night craving which you either can not get enough of or will find barely edible. In an idea that must have been born sometime after 2am, hunched over ... Read More

Old School Theatrical Review

(Eric English)  7/5/2006 2:40 PM EDT
In a time when anything any of its actors touches turns to box office gold, Old School emerged as the crown jewel on the hats of it "Frat Pack" members. Will Ferrell, Luke Wilson, and Vince Vaughn star in this campus comedy which proves no matter how old you are, funneling beer is still good "once it hits your lips…its so good... Read More

(Eric English)  6/26/2006 10:16 AM EDT
Duality. Good vs. Evil. Light vs. Dark. What series of films better exemplifies these themes than George Lucas’ iconic Star Wars? From the moment the infamous “opening crawl” graced the big screen in 1977, Star Wars has captivated audiences with its mixture of action, adventure, spirituality (The Force) and romance. The overarchin... Read More
