Insidious (2011)

"The film delivers haunted house-type scares throughout but I just wish the second half was as good as the first. Wait for the flick to come out on DVD. "

Red (2010)

"I literally shed a nerd tear because I could not handle the awesome nature of the action sequences in this film. Imagine the Ocean's films with machine guns. "

Going the Distance (2010)

"Long and Barrymore create very realistic chemistry in a film that pretty much nails what's it like to be in a long distance relationship. Though, Charlie Day steals the movie."

Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

"The overall film is a mess but the performances from Jemaine Clement, Lucy Punch and Zack Galafianakis make the flick worth watching. Catch the matinee price."

17 Again (2009)

"17 Again is yet another teenage flick that is completely out of my demo and completely unoriginal but delivers great laughs and an overall fun experience."

Observe and Report (2009)

"Observe and Report is one of those films that leaves you feeling confused about what you just watched. Luckily the last five minutes make up for the rest of the film."

Adventureland (2009)

Fast & Furious (2009)

"If you are a fan of the first film in the series and can forget about the two predecessors, then this is the sequel you have been waiting for. Vin Diesel is back!"

The Haunting in Connecticut (2009)

"Haunting in Connecticut made me feel like I was in a padded room. The main core was AWFUL but the two ends were actually pretty entertaining. Wait for the cable viewing."

Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)

"Monsters Vs. Aliens is visually pleasing but a sad attempt at entertaining kids. The film is riddled with tired jokes and wasted talent. Wait for the cable viewing."

12 Rounds (2009)

" 12 Rounds has some great action scenes and intensity but is killed by a horribly written script and ending. I would still recommend a rental."

I Love You, Man (2009)

"I Love You, Man has a great premise, enough laugh-out-loud jokes and plenty of awkwardness to warrant a viewing."

Duplicity (2009)

"Duplicity is another one of those flicks where everything is confusing until the very end but Gilroy does a great job building the chemistry between Roberts and Owen."

Knowing (2009)

"Knowing has a very gripping beginning and then just slowly lets the audience go until the film becomes a laughable cliché. One of the worst of the year so far!"

Miss March (2009)

Race to Witch Mountain (2009)

The Last House on the Left (2009)

Watchmen (2009)

"The flick is brutal, beautiful, thought provoking, phenomenal, genius, violent, sexual, brilliant and just overall completely mind blowing. Alan Moore would even like it!"

Two Lovers (2008)

"If the hype is true and this is really Phoenix's last role, he chose a relatively heavy and awkward film to go out on. The acting was superb and the flick felt very realistic."

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009)

"As a fan of the video game series, I can honestly say that this is hands down one of the worst films I have ever seen. Chris Klein is so bad that he made the movie a comedy."

The International (2009)

"The International is one of the better films of 2009 so far and contains an action scene that is worth the price of admission."

Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009)

Friday the 13th (2009)

"Maybe I am just desensitized, but this movie should have been a lot scarier, a lot more brutal and not the same old slasher movie we have seen a billion times."

Che: Part One (The Argentine) (2009)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)

The Tale of Despereaux (2008)

"This is a kid's flick that is extremely dark, contains very little humor and actually plays off as a well written drama that just happens to be animated."
