(Movie) Bolt

This was such a great film. The visuals are stunning and you can tell the animators actually cared (no thrown together film for these guys!). It’s funny – really funny. I think Rhino stole the show myself though 🙂 Yes, it’s about a dog and it’s a feel good family movie. Ho hum, Ho hum, […]

(Movie) Howard The Duck

When I heard that this was coming out on DVD, I immediately pre-ordered it. It’s from the 80s and it shows. The hair, the clothes, the just everything. I’m not sure why some people detest this movie so much. It’s funny, it’s silly. I mean, come on, it’s about a duck that gets sent from […]

(Movie) 21

I really really liked this movie. It was different, it was interesting, it was fun. And it was based around real events. Kevin Spacey is like icing on the cake, he did a great job. I was surprised I like this one so much, it was a little bit of a hidden gem for me. […]

(Movie) War, Inc.

This was good, but not great. I think I need to watch it a second time, actually. I did find the actors to be absolutely wonderful. I adore John Cusack and usually not so much Joan, but her style of acting fit this part absolutely perfectly. I got a bit lost in the storyline, somehow […]

(Movie) The Visitor

Richard Jenkins is amazing in this film. He is one of those actors who everyone knows, but they don’t quite remember how, I think that is because he truly BECOMES his character. (Oh, how I loved him recurring role in Six Feet Under, but I digress)… this is probably one of the absolute best Indie […]

(Movie) You Don’t Mess With the Zohan

I think I’ve said before that I don’t like potty humor. Just no. This would have been a decent movie if they hadn’t added so many rude gags to it. I guess it’s about what I was expecting, it had some funny parts, but mostly it’s just trash. Get from the $1 rental or just […]

(Movie) Martian Child

Wow. I wasn’t expecting to like this movie as much as I did. I’m a fan of John Cusack. I love him. I know, I know. Shut up. But I do. The kid though… wow. The kid nearly stole the show on this one. This was such a warm, heart felt film. Every single person […]

(Movie) Drillbit Taylor

I don’t know why I liked this movie. It was stupid, but stupid in a campy funny way. Rent it – save it for the $1 rental, but give it a try… great for a lazy afternoon when you just need a laugh or few. ====Summary Ryan (Troy Gentile) Wade (Nate Hartley) and Emmit (David […]

(Movie) The Hottie and the Nottie

My dear blog public – is it only for you that I would watch this movie. (okay, and it was the only one in the stack I hadn’t watched yet). The things I do for you! It has Paris Hilton in it. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot. But it didn’t suck. It wasn’t some […]
