Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

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 . . . → more

Star Trek

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 . . . → more

Dark Knight

This will probably be the least eloquent review of mine. Because I sort of don’t know what to say. It’s darker than what you expect, whatever you expect. I mean, yeah, if you’ve seen Memento . . . → more

The Prestige

The Prestige is an incredibly smart and intriguing film; very well made. It’s kind of like a magic trick because it tells you exactly what it’s going to do and then you’re still surprised and fascinated when it does it.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
