Horrible Bosses Review

January 16, 2012 // 1 Comment

Let’s just get the most important bit out of the way first shall we? Horrible Bosses is a very funny movie. That’s all you really needed to know wasn’t it? Well, there you have it. If you’re not into the whole analysis thing, feel free to take that free cookie and head on over to the forums to ogle pictures in the Babe Zone. [...]

Faster Review

August 14, 2011 // 0 Comments

(Warning, contains slight spoilers) Ah, now this is more like it. For a while there I thought we’d lost you Dwayne. Don’t get me wrong, you were as likeable as ever in all those affable little kids movies like ‘Race to Witch Mountain’ and ‘The Tooth Fairy’, but it was beyond fine time that you returned to your bread and butter, that [...]

Hello everyone and welcome to the thirteenth installment in my series of reviews chronicling the James Bond film series.

Cool Hand Luke Review

July 1, 2011 // 6 Comments

(Review originally written April 2006, contains spoilers) All throughout the fifties, sixties, and seventies cinema’s began filling up with a new kind of movie character. This character was affectionately dubbed ‘the anti hero’. While hero’s of the past were all kind considerate and upstanding citizens who all did their [...]

The Hustler Review

June 29, 2011 // 5 Comments

(Review originally written in April 2006, contains some spoilers) Eddy Felson is a man filled to capacity with talent, however what he sorely lacks when first we meet his character in the 1961 classic is ‘character’. He first walks into ‘Ames’ pool hall with a cocky grin hoping only to defeat the great pool hustler Minisota [...]

The Departed Review

June 26, 2011 // 5 Comments

In the closing scene of Martin Scorsese’s The Departed a rat crawls across a window ledge. This is a rather overt but appropriate piece of symbolism. Since, for the most part, The Departed is a movie about rats. No, not the furry little rodents your grandma used to set traps out for, the other kind of rat, that being the Henry Hill and Donnie [...]

The Mechanic Review

June 20, 2011 // 1 Comment

I had been looking forward to watching ‘The Mechanic’ for quite some time. Every time I took a turn by the local Red Box at Wal-Mart I would check to see if it had arrived, and even though it was advertised on the box, it never managed to find its way in the machine itself. In fact, it took me the better part of half a month to finally get my [...]

June 7, 2011 // 1 Comment

Hello everyone and welcome to the landmark tenth edition in my series of reviews chronicling the James Bond film franchise. Tonight the film we will be taking under the microscope for special examination is one of my all time favorites in the Double O’ Seven series, and what may be also hands down the best James Bond film of the Roger Moore era [...]

True Grit (2010) Review

June 6, 2011 // 2 Comments

Now here is a movie deserving of its title, as True Grit, is truly, as tough and gritty as they come. I must confess that I do ever so love a good western. Like many, I grew up watching countless westerns with my dad and my grandfather. There’s just something very special and timeless about that period of history just after the Civil War up [...]
