Immortals

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve seen Immortals. But I did not like it at all, which is why I haven’t seen it again now that it’s opened. . . . → more

Never Let Me Go

As much as I like to see science fiction movies outside the expected tropes of the genre I wouldn’t recommend this one. There was an interesting mystery that initially drew me in. I wanted to . . . → more

The Last Airbender

This has already been out for a week and the reviews have been horrible, so you don’t really need to hear from me. But, in case you’re curious, here’s a reason why… Fundamentally, I think the biggest flaw in this film is that M. Night Shyamalan stayed too . . . → more

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

I had high hopes for Transformers 2, I’ll admit. The trailer promised sharp, breath taking action, a little humor, robot fights, guy and girl running hand in hand, a bit of a deeper mythology and the expectation of a happy ending.

Sydney White

Superman Returns

I finally got to see this movie I have heard oh so much about. At first I kept thinking Smallville – how I was momentarily surprised that Martha Kent was so old. How much I like their version of Lois Lane better. But even though they cast rather young people, . . . → more

The Last Mimzy

I don’t have that much to say about The Last Mimzy. It had some interesting and fun ideas that wove Tibetan mythology with Alice and Wonderland. It was an interesting story with some very pretty elements, but it wasn’t necessarily well executed. There were moments here and there that worked, a few laughs, and the premise and a . . . → more
