Watchmen DVD Review
Watchmen (Director's Cut)   Watchmen DVD Review
(Marco Chacon)  8/4/2009 10:31 AM EDT
I know what you are thinking -- you are thinking,  'Gee, I really liked Watchmen; as  FlickDirect.com said, it is probably a better Watchmen than we deserve -- and definitely the best one we were going to get; but do I really want 24 more minutes of it?'And then you think -- 'Hey -- shouldn't I wait for that five-disc editi...

Miss March DVD Review
Miss March   Miss March DVD Review

The title comes from the story.  There are two high school buddies: one an uptight virgin who badly preaches, on abstinence and is celibate with his lovely, Raquel Alessi, girlfriend -- the other dumb-and-dumber.  When the "good" or maybe just "average" buddy is about to have sex for the first time, he falls down the s...

300 Blu-ray Review
300: The Complete Experience   300 Blu-ray Review
(Marco Chacon)  7/23/2009 11:39 AM EDT
If there was a single disc I would buy someone who just got a Blu-Ray player, 300 is definitely near the top of the list.  Although almost any movie will look great on Blu-Ray - very few would suffer as much comparatively on DVD.  The reason for this is that the movie is about the great historical battle at Thermopylae where a tiny force ...

Fracture Blu-ray Review

Anthony Hopkins plays a brilliant psychopath who coldly murders his cheating wife.  He then has to face off against Ryan Gosling, a go-getter prosecutor, who is about to make the leap to the big-leagues in a private firm and decides to take the last case (Hopkins') because it looks like a slam dunk!  After all, they have the...

"It is easy to shoot an art movie in a winery in the South of France.  But people have no idea how hard it is to create something like Transformers.  They (the critics) review me before they have even seen the movie."-- Michael BayThe real question is, "What was Michael Bay thinking"? Did he sincerely believe tha...

The Hangover Theatrical Review
The Hangover   The Hangover Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  6/22/2009 7:04 PM EDT
The Hangover fits into a category that is somewhat fuzzy and defined as "guy movies". That is, there are few women, there is a lot of male-bonding, and there are wacky, usually R-rated hijinks (well, X-Rated, but what you see in the movie will be R). Also, usually in these movies, the main characters behave stupidly -- or at least hormona... Read More

The Taking of Pelham 123 Theatrical Review
The Taking of Pelham 123   The Taking of Pelham 123 Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  6/18/2009 10:58 AM EDT
The Taking of Pelham 123 was a 1973 thriller about a group of thugs who take over a subway train and threaten to kill one hostage a minute unless they are paid 1 million dollars.  It was remade in 1998, but then  the ransom was five million dollars.  Today the ransom is 10 million dollars -- hey, inflation --and perhaps the target mo...

Up Theatrical Review
Up   Up Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  6/1/2009 9:31 PM EDT
I was able to tell from the teaser-trailer that Up was about an old man who fastens a bunch of helium balloons to his house and then uses it to take off. I thought "what then?"  It turns out that the Pixar guys had the same question at some point during development.  The answer turned out to be "the guy is fulfilling a...

Star Trek Theatrical Review
Star Trek   Star Trek Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  5/11/2009 7:23 PM EDT
Star Trek's promise has always been that it would show us a “for-real Utopian future” where the best voices of mankind have triumphed.  Star Trek’s fans, sometimes reaching religious levels of zeal, have gazed into its holographic crystal ball looking for the fundamental truths of its vision.  There was some actual visio...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Theatrical Review
X-Men Origins: Wolverine   X-Men Origins: Wolverine Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  5/4/2009 2:39 PM EDT
Wolverine takes the most popular character from the three successful X-Men movies, and explores his origins before the first movie began; wherein we saw him amnesiac and doing unsanctioned prize fights in a Canadian bar.  Wolverine, in case you don't know, is the guy with the metal claws that come out of his knuckles, unbreakable bones, and th...
