Real Steel

Real Steel

Posted October 18, 2011 : Review

The thing I like about Real Steel is, it’s not a movie you need to make allowances for.

With most action movies, you make allowances for the story or the performances or the characters

Country Strong

Country Strong

Posted February 12, 2011 : Review

One thing Country Strong has going for it is that it’s authentic. It has a rambling, low key sort of atmosphere that serves the story well.

The Karate Kid

When I first heard they were remaking the Karate Kid, I scoffed. I didn’t love the movies as a kid. I knew they were iconic and classic and still they weren’t my favorite.
