Retro Review: eXistenZ

Holy crap, I remember nothing about this movie. Even re-watching the trailer sparked no memories of eXistenZ. Nothing about the plot, characters, or if I even loved it or hated it. Apparently from my 16 year old review I thought it was pretty decent . . . but clearly not memorable.

A Knight's Tale

Retro Review: A Knight’s Tale

Purists beware: you will hate this movie. But if what you’re looking for is an old-fashioned fun time, then A Knight’s Tale is the perfect escape for you. The costumes are amazing, …

2001: A Space Odyssey

Retro Review: 2001: A Space Odyssey

If you’re a fan of the genre, this is required viewing. Maybe not for the sake of viewing it just to see it, but to realize what an influential piece …

Chicken Run

He Said, She Said: Chicken Run Review

Though slowly paced at times for our tastes, Chicken Run is a fun, humorous, and entertaining claymation classic for audiences of all ages. References to other film (and television) classics are …

Retro Review: Dracula 2000

There are a few very scary moments in Dracula 2000. Overall, the film is a flaccid adaptation of the classic Dracula story. I started disliking the movie halfway through, when it seemed Lussier …

If you think I am giving the film too much praise, go see the film for yourself. This film possesses layers upon layers of quality and skill. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is near …

Battlefield Earth

Retro Review: Battlefield Earth

The makers were trying to create a serious science fiction movie. They succeeded. Battlefield Earth is a seriously shitty science fiction movie. I suppose you could watch it as both science fiction and …

Red Planet

He Said, She Said: Red Planet

Certainly not a science fiction classic, Red Planet possesses many aspects that make it an enjoyable watch, but there’s not a high level of rewatchability. Carrie-Anne Moss puts in the best …

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

He Said, She Said: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

While not as bad as The Desolation of Smaug, nor as good as An Unexpected Journey, this “defining” installment falls squarely in between its two predecessors. Again, as a translation of the book comparisons can barely be made . . . The Hobbit is in there, somewhere, we think.

Retro Review: A.I. Artificial Intelligence

I really enjoyed Artificial Intelligence, and found it very deep and symbolic. I also enjoyed the moralistic/scientific paradox. Some people won’t get it, and those are the people that won’t like it. …

He Said, She Said: House On Haunted Hill Review

An absolute dud remake of Vincent Price’s 1959 horror classic. There are almost no likable elements to this 1999 version, except watching the unlikable characters finally meeting their demise for acting …

Retro Review: Unbreakable

Besides its betraying ending, Unbreakable is an interesting look at human nature . . . and whether there are superheroes among us. I highly recommended seeing this film. It not only makes you think, …
