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, …

Titan A.E.

Retro Review: Titan A.E.

He Said, She Said: Supernova Review

Quite possibly one of the worst major studio scifi movies in the past few decades. Definitely the worst of the first decade of the 2000s. Just a horrible production of an even more horrible script, plagued by shoddy …

He Said, She Said: The Thirteenth Floor Review

The Thirteenth Floor is a wholly forgettable cyberpunk/virtual reality movie that was overshadowed by similar and superior movies of the day, namely Dark City and The Matrix.

The Iron Giant

Retro Review: The Iron Giant (1999)

I can’t really think of anything negative to say about this great movie. If you don’t frequent animated movies, then it’s time to turn over a new leaf with The Iron Giant. …

Retro Review: Dark City (1998)

Joe Moviegoer will probably find this movie tiresome and confusing. It’s definitely not for the average viewer. Most hardcore science fiction fans should appreciate its complex and winding plot. This movie is bound …

Interstellar by Christopher Nolan

Review: Interstellar (2014)

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar isn’t perfect, but it’s a visually stunning science fiction adventure that tempers the fiction with a healthy dose of science, while at the same time being sprinkled with a dash of …
