The Tourist
Posted December 12, 2010 : Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Review

The Tourist is a nearly flawless film. Which is not to say it’s the best move I’ve ever seen, or great or wonderful or epic. It simply means there wasn’t anything wrong with it, nothing that

Posted July 18, 2010 : Leonardo DiCaprio, Review

There’s really no way to talk about this movie without spoilers. If you haven’t seen it yet though, you’re one of the few but I felt the need to be clear on that anyway.

I sat around yesterday trying to figure Inception out, trying to write

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Posted July 16, 2009 : Review

I have to admit I was leary going into Half Blood Prince. Order of the Phoenix was by far my least favorite of the series because of David Yates direction and his

Star Trek
Posted May 10, 2009 : Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, Review

I saw Star Trek this weekend. Loved it. I actually haven’t liked a movie that much in a long time. I just walked out of it feeling happy and whole and refreshed. Probably didn’t hurt that I

The Secret Life of Bees

Definitely, Maybe
Posted January 25, 2008 : Review, Ryan Reynolds

Best romantic comedy I’ve seen in a long while. More romantic than comedy…endearing, and charming… There are two things that really work about this movie and it’s a good thing too

Atonement is a lovely film. It’s simple and straightforward, not lovely because it’s told with a soft lense or because there is a sense of wonder and beauty about it. But lovely because the

Kingdom of Heaven
Posted November 3, 2007 : Orlando Bloom, Review

The only review I really have of the theatrical cut is a quote from Entertainment Weekly’s review of Kingdom of Heaven – May 13, 2005. There were a lot of things I liked about it and a lot of things I was

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

When I first came out of Pirates 3 wasn’t sure what I thought. But the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. I was thinking over different scenes and realizing how much I just enjoyed the film, enjoyed myself while I was watching it. It’s fun. It’s funny. The monkey was frickin’ hilarious.
