1.5/4 9% Bangkok Dangerous (2008) "You now that your movie has major problems when a bad wig is the most memorable part of the film." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Sep 8, 2008
3/4 62% Hamlet 2 (2008) "a wildly uneven satire--not nearly as controversial or as funny as you might have expected." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Sep 3, 2008
1.5/4 6% Babylon A.D. (2008) "it's impossible to get excited about a movie when the leading man looks bored." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Sep 3, 2008
2.5/4 42% The House Bunny (2008) "It's a bit derivative, but issues of originality aside, I've got to admit that I found this late-summer comedy to be quite charming, and frequently very funny." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Aug 26, 2008
1.5/4 41% The Longshots (2008) "What's the point of making a sports flick if you're going to suck all the joy out of the story?" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Aug 20, 2008
2/4 14% Mirrors (2008) "this is a film that starts out strong, but turns silly once you bring the lights up on the plot." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Aug 17, 2008
2.5/4 18% Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) "Feels like little more than a big-budget Saturday morning cartoon. An okay movie, but not nearly special enough to be a legitimate member of the "Star Wars" family of films." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Aug 12, 2008
3/4 68% Pineapple Express (2008) "I can live without the drug murders and chases, but sitting around over breakfast with some new friends makes for a primo comedy, and another crowd-friendly hit for Judd Apatow." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Aug 10, 2008
3/4 38% Swing Vote (2008) "The political satire is nice (but perhaps too gentle) and the family drama is touching, but the two elements don't necessarily mesh well within the same film." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Aug 2, 2008
2/4 12% The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) "Fraser's still a lot of fun, but the charm seems to be evaporating from the franchise this third time out." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 30, 2008
1.5/4 31% The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2) (2008) "This could just be my nostalgia talking, but it's hard to get excited about the movie when the TV show consistently offered better stories." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 30, 2008
3/4 55% Step Brothers (2008) "You've seen this schtick a million times before, but you'll be too busy laughing to care." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 23, 2008
3.5/4 94% The Dark Knight (2008) "thanks to an atypically meaty screenplay, this might very well be the best superhero movie of all time, and is the only film in this genre that is so well crafted that it deserves some serious respect when Oscar season rolls around next year." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 23, 2008
1.5/4 54% Mamma Mia! (2008) "It makes for campy fun at times, but the bottom line is that it's hard to get swept up by the story when the singing keeps making you wince" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 15, 2008
3/4 61% Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) "a theme park metaphor is particularly apt in describing this movie because it plays like the 3-D attractions you can find over at Sea World. It's exciting, funny, not too scary and quite short%u2014young kids will absolutely love it." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 15, 2008
3/4 85% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) "Cool monsters aside, it's really the humor and the characters make Hellboy 2 into something more than just another summer special effects flick." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 10, 2008
3/4 79% Kit Kittredge: An American Girl (2008) "If only all family films could be this good." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 10, 2008
3/4 41% Hancock (2008) "The bottom line, of course, is Will Smith who carries the film and salvages things even while the story falls apart all around him. The guy has charisma to burn, and makes Hancock appealing" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jul 1, 2008
2.5/4 72% Wanted (2008) "If you're one of those summer movie fanatics, the kind of person who values non-stop action and cutting-edge special effects to the exclusion of character and story, then the new movie "Wanted" is certainly the film you want to see" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 29, 2008
4/4 96% WALL-E (2008) "There are no accolades too generous for the film that turns out to be so good that it's now my favorite story from the Pixar library." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 25, 2008
1/4 14% The Love Guru (2008) "just isn't funny by any stretch of the imagination, relying instead upon a mindless barrage of crotch humor, bodily fluid gags and midget jokes that won't amuse anyone other than the most juvenile of audiences." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 23, 2008
3/4 51% Get Smart (2008) "Purists may be disappointed, but I must admit that the film is nevertheless a lot of fun." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 18, 2008
1/4 18% The Happening (2008) "The slight premise, coupled with some very bad performances by the cast as well as a screenplay filled with ham-fisted dialogue makes for a film that's not scary and borders on being ridiculous at times." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 18, 2008
2.5/4 67% The Incredible Hulk (2008) "Hulk. Smash. But not Smash Movie." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 12, 2008
2.5/4 38% You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) "despite all of the film's problems, there are still plenty of very funny moments and Zohan is one of Sandler's more enjoyable characters." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 12, 2008
3/4 87% Kung Fu Panda (2008) "A nice little adventure that will keep the kiddies entertained for an hour and a half. Mom and dad will find some nice moments as well." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 4, 2008
2/4 45% The Strangers (2008) "when a horror film manages to get its creepy hooks into your skin, it at least deserves some faint praise for psychological effectiveness." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Jun 2, 2008
2.5/4 49% Sex and the City (2008) "fans will be thrilled to catch up with the gals. Non-fans will probably be a bit confused and wonder what all the fuss was about." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted May 28, 2008
3/4 77% Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) "Grab your popcorn and cue the theme music, this is gonna be a fun ride." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted May 21, 2008
3/4 67% The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) "lives up to expectations, although it doesn't quite scale the heights set by the original film." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted May 15, 2008
3/4 27% What Happens in Vegas (2008) "I can't recommend it as a must-see date night getaway, neither will I discourage audiences looking for a little bit of mindless rom-com fun. And given the likable nature of the film's two stars, this trip to "Vegas" coasts by on just enough charm to make" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted May 11, 2008
2.5/4 39% Speed Racer (2008) "You'll be overwhelmed by the film's visual style (Think Willy Wonka making a movie out of Skittles) but it's only a simple treat without any of the heartier substance of a full cinematic meal." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted May 8, 2008
3.5/4 94% Iron Man (2008) "Fan boys looking for an action and special effects-filled popcorn spectacle will be thrilled by "Iron Man's" pyrotechnic treats. Discriminating audiences hoping for a film that features more acting than action will also be thrilled by the casting of Rober" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 30, 2008
2.5/4 64% Baby Mama (2008) "a mild charmer, with a genial nature and a game cast." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 27, 2008
2.5/4 65% The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) "These two fighters may be turning into grandpas, thanks to the "Viagra" of wire work and other special effects, both men are still able to pull off some very entertaining fight sequences." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 24, 2008
3/4 53% Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) "It's lost some of the outrageous edge found in the original film, but there is still plenty of irreverent laughs" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 24, 2008
3/4 85% Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) "Doesn't quite have as much heart as Apatow's previous films, but there are laughs galore -- not to mention full frontal pudgy white dude nudity. Yikes." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 15, 2008
1.5/4 8% Prom Night (2008) "The teen-friendly rating may be good for business, but it saps the film of much of its power to shock. Take away the shock and there's not much left to work with." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 13, 2008
2/4 36% Street Kings (2008) "The cast is filled with some very talented actors, but none of them really shines out in a film that ultimately feels like a thousand other police thrillers." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 13, 2008
3.5/4 100% They Killed Sister Dorothy (2008) "Director Daniel Junge succeeds marvelously here, with total access to all of the characters in what turns out to be a passionate courtroom melodrama." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 6, 2008
3/4 100% At the Death House Door (2008) "a powerful rumination on the death penalty, but perhaps because Rev. Pickett isn't a firebrand, the film is curiously disaffecting." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 6, 2008
2.5/4 69% American Teen (2008) "It's all-consuming stuff, particularly when you look at it in extreme close up." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 6, 2008
1.5/4 51% Nim's Island (2008) "Think of it as a safari tour for toddlers -- perfectly safe but without any of the legitimate thrills found in a real adventure." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 2, 2008
2.5/4 53% Leatherheads (2008) "Has enough of the screwball comedy flavor to appeal to fans of Preston Sturges or George Cukor. Sports fans, on the other hand, will be disappointed." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Apr 2, 2008
3/4 48% Run Fatboy Run (2007) "Seldom laugh-out-loud funny and the script doesn't have the witty insight of Pegg's last few films, but Pegg's bumbling charm is just enough to make this movie run." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Mar 30, 2008
2/4 36% 21 (2008) "starts out strong, with an attractive cast and an intriguing premise, but ultimately looses its way due to silly subplots and a muddled ending." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Mar 30, 2008
3/4 64% Stop-Loss (2008) "deserves praise for dealing honestly with a thorny issue where most other filmmakers would simply resort to propaganda." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Mar 25, 2008
1.5/4 25% Drillbit Taylor (2008) "Mix in the mediocre jokes and a cast that is game, but not overly inspired and you're left with a film that's a real letdown considering the filmmaking team involved here." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Mar 23, 2008
1.5/4 50% Doomsday (2008) "With my apologies to Tina Turner, "Mad Max" gets a big dose of girl power, and the results aren't pretty." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Mar 18, 2008
2/4 22% Never Back Down (2008) "proves to be a bit of a guilty pleasure" ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
Posted Mar 16, 2008
2.5/4 38% Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? (2008) "a lot of fun to watch, but I seriously doubt if anybody is going to leave the theater having learned anything about the Middle East that they didn't already know." ‐ Sean the Movie Guy
