Brave Theatrical Review

While Cars 2 was enjoyable enough those two movies about anthropomorphic automobiles are in the bottom tier of Pixar pictures for me. So when preview clips for the next Pixar flick gave us glimpses of an unruly red haired lass with bow and arrow and the title of Brave, my anticipation level kicked up a notch. And Brave is aptly titled. For what could be a cliched love story about a young Scottish ...[Read More]

The Hunger Games Theatrical Review

It’s not something that was really encouraged, or something that was pushed upon me as a child. I’m working on changing that of course. That’s not why we’re here though.

Black Swan Theatrical Review

Black Swan has a lot going for it: Natalie Portman, Darren Aronofsky, dope early Soviet era inspired posters, Tchaikovsky. But like someone on a blind date I went in with restrained expectations, hoping for the best but worried about being let down. Where to begin? It’s as if Aronofsky sat me down and said: “What terrifies you the most? Doppelgängers? Hitchcockian fixations on buns? A ...[Read More]

The Expendables Theatrical Review

The 80’s was undoubtedly the manliest and most muscular decade in film history (as recently decided upon by Muscle & Fitness). We had former Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe Arnold Schwarzenegger. Rocky…no, Rambo…no, Rocky…ummm Sylvester Stallone, the muscles from Brussels Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren who challenged most of these muscleheads head on. In the early 90’s...[Read More]
