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, …

Titan A.E.

Retro Review: Titan A.E.

Titan A.E. gets my vote for best science fiction film of 2000 even though it seems to be underrated and under appreciated by everyone else. Forget that it’s an animated movie, and just …

Chappie

He Said, She Said: Chappie Review

Everything about Chappie looks and feels like a signature Neill Blomkamp film . . . one that borrows heavily from RoboCop, Short Circuit, and even Pinocchio. While taking brutal hits from …

He Said, She Said: Supernova Review

After Earth

Review: After Earth (2013)

I didn’t find After Earth to be a bad movie, it’s just not a good movie (yes, that’s praise). I paid matinee prices and came out of it mildly entertained. Value propositions still …

Star Trek Into Darkness

Review: Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

STID is a very mixed bag for me. A movie can still have major problems and I can come away entertained. Looking at it as a Trek fan, it’s an ineffective …

After Earth

M. Night Shyamalan has been busy trying to salvage his career and reputation after releasing a series of critical and box office flops.  The point of his decline from the […]

Retro Review: Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

Is Attack of the Clones a perfect movie? Hell no. It is without doubt a much better movie than The Phantom Menace which I still enjoy. Attack of the …
