Big Eyes (2014)
See this. Show it to your daughters. Just do not expect a whimsical Tim Burton ditty.

The Toy Soldiers (2014)
Toy Soldiers high drama is well executed and the words spoken so real you feel like you're intruding.

The Wolfman (2010)
What fun. Lighten up and enjoy. The Universal monster film is back!

Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Hollywoody-ish-ist Sherlock ever. Downey Jr. and Law are magical though...

Fog City Mavericks (2007)
This work reminds its lucky viewers why they fell in love with movie-going to begin with: the creative minds behind the frames that paint moving images to feed our imaginations.

Star Trek (2009)
Director J J Abrams has made summer 2009 an event.

X-Men Origins - Wolverine (2009)
Sure you let past hints of background slip as you want so much to buy into this back story. But ultimately you're left still asking, "What is Wolverine. And why?" ...Read on->

Here's a film you probably sneered at as its ads played for its mega-plex roll out. I beg you not to let you keep that from now buying the DVD.

4th and Long (2008)
Even with the tiny hang nails these guys have made 4th and Long one helluva hilarious film that should be a cult classic if it's given the chance.
Posted Jan 30, 2009
The film's over two and half hours so go when you are in the mood to just escape into a fairy tale. Take a moment to search around the gorgeous sets and remember, a film like this doesn't get made these days. Wait, it does and it did.

This offers Strummer fans unlimited access to the man behind the legend. Though it really is for fans - who should run and buy it.

Oliver, um, this is way too domestic, PBS has more chutzpah! It's not a good feeling to hate a "special" child. You gave Bush - God forgive me - likeabilty. Read on ->

The Dark Knight (2008)
A big summer blockbuster dripping in characters.
Posted Aug 14, 2008
Did I mention lately how very much I love Tim Burton's brain? Few could have taken, would have dared to take, a musical stage play of this depth and managed to make it into such a beautiful film. Burton and his gang have though. Read On->

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.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)
There's oodles of sub-stories, and drama galore...

Blades of Glory (2007)
You may need diapers (if you don't normally wear them) to view this.. Let the world rest a while and enjoy the silliness.

The Science of Sleep (2006)
Michel Gondry is to visual art as Van Gogh is to post-impressionism; vivid bold and fearless, the seam of reality is present but you're never quite sure where they will lead your emotions, while taking an established artform to a different level.

Superman Returns (2006)
Look up the sky...it's a bird...it's a plane...no it's Brandon Routh manly manning up the horizon in form-fitting tights...
Posted Jun 28, 2006
A Prairie Home Companion (2006)
A Prairie Home Companion is a sort of The Last Waltz meets Christopher Guest-ish, Robert Altman-steered mockmentary hootenanny!
Posted Jun 8, 2006
District B13 (Banlieue 13) (2006)
The story's a bit overdramatic.
Posted Jun 2, 2006
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...
Posted Jun 1, 2006
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
Posted May 25, 2006
The Da Vinci Code (2006)
Da Vinci tis sure to stir up a big ol' nest of locus-n-controversy. But it's a helluva film!
Posted May 19, 2006
Oy! What that then? Why it's a bleedin' 110 foot wave. Crikey!
Posted May 12, 2006
Mission: Impossible III (2006)
It's a helluva mission kids!
Posted May 6, 2006
American Dreamz (2006)
The story, while no Dr. Strangelove, is very poignant as a satire on politics and modern culture.
Posted Apr 20, 2006
The Notorious Bettie Page (2006)
Style-wise the film's a winner.
Posted Apr 7, 2006
V for Vendetta (2006)
T for Terrible
Posted Mar 23, 2006
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.
Posted Mar 23, 2006
Failure to Launch (2006)
Even scrumtious manlyberry ala mode McConaughey cant save this fiasco. Failure to Launch fails to entertain - in the least.
Posted Mar 11, 2006
16 Blocks (2006)
Oy vey is this wafer-thin entertainment...
Posted Mar 3, 2006
Tsotsi (Thug) (2006)

King Kong (2005)
This is what they try to say when you hear, "An experience awaits you at the movies," folks.

Narnia is a visually stunning, and very touching film for the family.

Walk the Line (2005)
It aint easy walkin' into a force like Cash's life-shoes. But, Phoenix, Witherspoon and Mangold done did good...
Posted Nov 27, 2005
The Ice Harvest (2005)
The Ice Harvest is a hearty hued anti-jovial, though oddly not anti-humorous, Christmas neo-Noir that'll have you giggling with morbid glee, and properly cringing where need be!
Posted Nov 23, 2005
The Chumscrubber (2005)
There's something up in Suburbia, if anyone cares to notice...Been there, done that, but, the actors make this a great film
Posted Nov 16, 2005
North Country (2005)
North Country is more than an award trolling piece - it's a heartfelt gem steered by Threon and McDormand that takes sevral true tales to create a helluav drama!
Posted Oct 22, 2005
Good Night, And Good Luck (2005)
Good night , and goodluck is a stunning, uniquely timely, piece that gloriously interweaves real behind the story stories 'tween Murrow & Senator McCarthy...

A History of Violence (2005)
A History of Violence's pedigree of cast and crew speaks for itself really, but I suppose I need to write on.
