There’s a scene early on in the film that truly shows why it kinda sucks. After trying to break into Paul’s house, Will subsequently gets tied to a tree and left outside overnight. That’s when I started to think that the big reveal would be made–that there’s something in the woods that they’re trying to […]Read More It Comes At Night–Oh, wait, I guess not.

Now that Daniel Craig is three films into his career as James Bond, I can safely say that he’s my favorite incarnation of the character… And by that I mean he’s the only incarnation of the character I’ve been really able to connect with. Casino Royale was a great, if not boring, introduction to this […]Read More skyfall review
Let me start this off by saying that I am a Michael Bay apologist. I don’t know why, really. I just like his movies and am not sorry for it. He may not be able to make an Oscar-Bait late-fall type of movie, but he’s probably the second best in the summer movie business (behind […]Read More Turn the page on the day, walk away [transformers 3]

After Slumdog Millionaire, I had zero faith in Danny Boyle. Even though he had directed Trainspotting and 28 Days Later, I just could not shake the awful feeling that his career was on a downturn towards sloppy, sentimental works–and I’m also pretty sure I’m the only person who didn’t like it. With 127 Hours, though, […]Read More Aron Ralston has a problem [127 hours]
Because It’s Inevitable Let’s just get this out of the way now: This movie is not The Incredibles. For a few reasons. First, it’s not as good. Plain and simple.

Whereas the Incredibles […]Read More Every Thorn has its Rose [megamind]
It’s a road movie. It’s a buddy comedy. It’s absurd. It’s incredibly heartfelt. Seriously? Seriously. Even though it exists in the universe of a comedy–where breaking the law is okay and repercussions are excised for the sake of pacing–this movie culls a lot of emotion out of its situations and its pit stops. But don’t […]Read More Automobiles, Automobiles, and Automobiles [due date]
I didn’t really expect much from this movie. I’m not the target marget, I just like Sam Rockwell. Hilary Swank is a fair enough actor though she has gotten the reputation of being a sure of sign of movie built to win Oscars–I’m pretty sure this was because of Million Dollar Baby, then Freedom Writers, […]Read More innocence in the face of guilt [conviction]
I just finished watching Kanye West’s 34 minute music video called Runaway. It features nine songs from his upcoming album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” and the video lives up to the title of the album. This is what happens, in a nutshell: a phoenix falls to Earth, becomes Kanye’s girlfriend (or kidnap victim, it’s […]Read More Malick + Bay = …Kanye…?
