Posted Jan 30, 2009
4/4 72% The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) " The film's over two and half hours so go when you are in the mood to just escape into a fairy tale.

2/4 44% Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End (2007) " Dear readers Bruckheimer pulled a Bruckheimer. I am a huge fan of his action packed plot-lite escape t the movies. But, in Pirates 3 the mega-producer took a diamond of a franchise and shattered it into sand." — Blunt Review

Posted Jun 2, 2006
3/4 34% The Break-Up (2006) " The Break-Up is ultimately a big budget heart-heavy indy film, and not a slapstick broad comedy as the ads would have you think..." — Blunt Review
Posted Jun 1, 2006
2.5/4 57% X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) " This is X -Men kids, one does not expect 'A Twelfth Night' deep yarn to play out before you. And on this point, X-Men does not disappoint; minimal brain-space required to follow the bouncing mutants" — Blunt Review

3.5/4 86% Inside Man (2006) " An intelligent fast-paced urban cops-and-robbers bank heist flick that keeps its delightful twist-riddled ending properly hidden, while hinting just enough to keep suspense junkies jonesin' to last frame." — Blunt Review
Posted Mar 23, 2006
