  • New Star Wars Movie Featuring Old Cast

    So I just read that the new Star Wars movie being directed by J.J. Abrams will feature the original cast of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. No offense, but these actors are old. How are you going to reach a new generation of movie-goers using those 3 in an action, sci-fi film? I’m […]

  • Silver Linings Playbook

    Silver Linings Playbook isn’t bad. I’ll say this: it’s the best romantic comedy aka chick flick I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a nice date movie and for a guy, you can actually enjoy it.

  • Best Picture (2013 Oscars)

    So of the Oscar nominees for Best Picture, I’ve watched Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, and Argo. Of just those, I would pick Argo. Regarding Lincoln, the acting was great and it was a nice history lesson, but the movie was boring as f*ck. I can appreciate good period pieces and historical dramas, but Lincoln was […]

  • Taken

    Taken is a good movie but be warned this is definitely a guy’s movie. Liam Neeson’s character is like an older Jason Bourne. This guy takes down almost everyone he comes across with absolutely no mercy. But don’t feel bad for them, they were all really bad guys. Liam Neeson plays a retired government agent […]

  • My Sassy Girl (English Remake) Sucks

    I just watched the 2008 remake of My Sassy Girl and it totally sucked. If you don’t know, My Sassy Girl is a South Korean romantic comedy that came out in 2001 and was immensely popular throughout Asia. The remake doesn’t compare AT ALL to the Korean version. The remake is worse in every aspect. […]

  • Vantage Point

    I recently watched Vantage Point and it was a really a mixed bag. I guess it was an okay movie. It was interesting to see each person’s individual point of view but there are so many plot holes or plot devices that were just really weak. You really have to watch the movie to understand […]

  • Children of Men

    Children of Men is a great movie – it’s gritty and captivating. It shows a really grim view of the future – the basic premise is that for some unknown reason women become infertile so there are no more babies. The movie starts off with the world mourning the death of the youngest person on […]

  • The Breakup

    I saw this movie a couple of weeks back. Now, Vince Vaughn is usually pretty funny and in this movie he has some moments. You know how he mutters on and on about stupid things – that’s kind of his act. But this movie overall is pretty damn boring and after seeing the ending I […]

  • The DaVinci Code

    The book is much better. Movie is so-so. If you really want to enjoy the story of The DaVinci Code, I’d strongly advise you read the book. There would be no point in reading the book after you see the movie since most of the story has been revealed. The movie was pretty faithful to […]

  • V for Vendetta

    So I watched V for Vendetta over the weekend and it was really good. As you may know, it’s produced by the same creators of The Matrix trilogy. The movie is thought provoking and a lot of the stuff alludes to what’s happening in the world today. The basic plot is that because of the […]
