The Big Box Office Bamboozle

It looks like my prediction about Avatar is on track to come true, but the box office reports today reminded...

The Hangover

I don’t go to the movies much (there are three reasons for this), and even when I do, I rarely...

Indiana Jones 4

A while back, I wrote about how movie franchises rarely make it to the fourth installment, and that there’s a...

Spiderman 3

The acting is superb, and DeNiro’s direction is spot on, but don’t go see this movie if you are in...

Casino Royale

So Daniel Craig’s not as bad as everyone said he was going to be. I’m by no means a fan...

The Break Up

Will Vince Vaughn ever tire of the flat, stereotypical characters that he plays? I’ll admit the man has a gift,...

The DaVinci Code

There is no such thing as bad publicity. I’m surprised that the Catholic Church didn’t learn that lesson in 1988...

V for Vendetta

This is a powerful film. Sadly, too few people will see it. And of the ones who do, not enough...

King Kong

This movie was as good as any interspecial love story can be, I suppose. I didn’t feel that it lived...
